Well buckle up and do sportswear is here on this -- and Wednesday morning. Good morning and happy Wednesday everybody the pelicans were off their game in the stable senator. And were routed by the lakers won sixteen to 95. New Orleans suffered a second straight road defeat and wrap up their three game road trip this evening against Utah you can catch tip off on 1053 WWL FM at 8 o'clock. While the six and 349 has come to town this week and saints general manager Mickey Loomis tells NBC sports that the team knows they're in for a hard hitting. Physical contest in the superdome. To really be this year ago any game where they had a couple pick sixes they do this in the playoff game here before so we're you know what were familiar -- somewhere only we know how good they are defensively. Meanwhile since Garrett Hartley continues to struggle making field goals this seemed -- worked out a group of -- according to ESPN. Hartley has missed four of his last six attempts. LSU -- opened the season with a 92 denied he lost the UMass tigers but we're Johnny O'Bryant the third. Scored 23 points with eleven rebounds in the loss also of -- in college basketball keep Napoli had 22 points eight rebounds and 88 assists.

To at least put pressure on Hartley and let them know hey. Get your act together or you're out here now it's been a weird season for him hot and cold his career long 55 yarder based mixed six. Field goals this season that's amongst the worst in the league. Is it time for our -- kicker or is it just timed. Get Garrett Hartley back on the straight and narrow by -- M hey if you can't get it done soon we will replace. I think you deathly was time to bring in someone to at least provide a little extra motivation behind him and show like. Hey you know you are replaceable unit that week and bring in another kicker for his team. I'm surprised though Jose multi -- wasn't in that mix since he was with picture of the team during training camp. Lot of people commenting on our FaceBook page do you believe it's time to replace -- even though they know he was the guy who kicked up into the Super Bowl. That's slightly have you done for me lately yes that's correct absolutely and that's a -- blaming partly for the two losses this season. They were factors in those games that side. Score wise. -- him. In that and -- especially the last game against the the jets with a six point loss as one field one feel all right. And less is a new ruler Google's we're sick that happened at an apple that. Think if they get people talking about when he five minutes more or I talked about Ed -- I was looking at some analysis.

With a little extra motivation. You know they're gonna be angry after after coming -- a home loss and Morgan gets their best game we know -- and so we're gonna have to play our best game in this important game for us. Garrett Harvey's recent kicking woes have forced the team to bring a few legs pearl worked out according to ESPN kickers -- simply Neil Rackers and Shayne Graham. We're all in town yesterday. No word yet though an anecdote and any of them were sorry to the roster. The Texans have -- safety Eric -- Ed -- this. That comes following Houston being. Outplayed and out coached Reid said Sunday to Arizona the 35 year old had has for -- fourteen tackles on the year. With no interceptions.

Minutes after 5 AM the early edition of WW Alfredsson is on his Mary Cole -- -- the cold pumps today. Here and a VW update on Steve Geller with you on your radius that we talked about the kicking situation you like them of the -- spring and in some. Kickers to at least try out maybe even signed one just to put some pressure on Garrett Hartley and say hey if you can't do it. Somebody else will but what about and read here is a veteran safeties won a Super Bowl. Or two I Aziz he knows the position -- definitely on his -- them. And they've got the backside of the backside of his career to put it nicely. Oh but with so many safeties heard on the saints would be a bad idea to bring the guy from. Southeast Louisiana back home to at least hang out and if you need them have their in the backfield. His decline is definitely -- in very noticeable he's got bad hip he's got -- knees. I do see the advantage though right now because of the injury situation with the saints plus. Be a heck of a mentor for a young guy like -- -- Karros so what I wouldn't. Not hated -- in the states at least brought him in for work after the check them out because his is experience and knowledge and obvious obvious feels it is is still. Maybe it's an infringement and -- economic and happy and -- McCarty said on his as a Grammy playing this weekend he said two concussions in the last three weeks. So and we still don't know about Roman Harper we don't know about Malcolm Jenkins right now that leaves us with -- field -- -- bush.

We hear from the cold and Texas and 877 but imagine putting your naked bomb somewhere someone else's -- politics what it got me think in the that's pretty gross. About that scene in Christmas story about when the -- sticks his -- to the -- Well it's cold as it is now up there and -- in imagine if you have any sweat at all -- swing and make it on that wrecking ball. But could stick to that medal rankings bombing -- got the fire department did its job without. Ripping your -- Yes the -- Generally good idea folks I've really is called if you haven't stepped out the door yet please be ready for winds up to thirty miles an hour gusting even higher.
