Hey good morning -- -- for garlic today and all this week everybody's focusing on tonight's -- Monday night game between the saints and the Seahawks it's in Seattle. And the weather is gonna be far from ideal temperatures in the thirties and there's a chance of some missed -- light rain in May be mixed with snow that could change as the day goes on. Coming up in a few minutes were gonna take you live to Seattle. Ever gonna be on the air with the BJ Shea experience. In radio station KI SW rock in Seattle it's an intercom station in Seattle. And they'll be on the air here as well DJ Steve and a former a former seahawk player. John Moffett who was also with the Broncos earlier this year I will also be in the studio and network that is sick carrying the game. Is promoting it's it's not a playoff game it just feels like one and indeed it -- sadness this rivalry between the saints in the Seahawks. -- is it is a new rivalry and it is sort of defies the miles that separate the two cities and these these cities in so many ways are our. A total opposites I'm I'm I'm from New Orleans but it has the opportunity be on the -- Seattle for a couple of years at. I'd love being their loved it of the -- love being back home in New Orleans but it is -- it it is a great city but you wouldn't think that there was this would be a city that were produced he's just why hailed the crazy. Rabid fans split. That's the best way to describe the Seahawks fans they are they are wild. While the city in the cities are very opposite in in many ways. Guy and very far apart it it geographically they're far apart but they're very close to each other. When it comes to. The rankings in the NFL Seattle's number one saints are number two in the NFC Seattle's -- -- saints are nine and two. So it it does that it it doesn't require geographical proximity like the saints and falcons. Two to create a big rivalry it takes a proximity. In the rankings we'll talk a -- guys are coming up at about 1135. He has in Seattle. Also just a quick note here the death of Paul Walker the festive period star of the weekend police are now saying. That they believe drag racing may have contributed. Two to the tragedy. The -- that he was about writing a -- -- -- -- hit a light pole and retrieve burst into flames and they believe they were drag racing but in a car. We often talk about art imitating life. This would be an unfortunate situation of life imitating art if indeed the guy from fast and furious died drag racing. In a car crash good morning -- studio for Garland right now we're gonna take you live to Seattle radio station KI NSW rock for the -- Shea experience. Mine right now scale notice that you read a good morning. All right. You know if I had an over I really didn't wanna say any but you know it never works and we try satellite the last time I tried this remember Opie from -- -- thought we were trying to sabotage your show because things weren't working -- -- -- John -- here John you know John's here John you're here right yes I'm here I can CEO but I still could have a problem hearing you but playing how my life go. All right so still it's on a station called WWL which is a big radio station -- popular station in New Orleans. They did a fantastic job but with the -- -- Hurricane Katrina coverage they've -- serve that city so well. Arafat there there probably are radio station and our family of stations right there is absolutely on the same company at the saints over there and didn't the saints are here and Seattle's what better time to talk now you don't -- really good time to talk dispute now than it was he even be hearing us so it's good if if you are hearing us. Were at least give you some pretty good programming trouble is you can't get a word in edgewise if you're trying to -- -- -- usually you can make your skin can you guys hear me very there anything. Any full -- this year. I'm I'm sure they can hear me we could hear them through your mind it was ticket here I don't know a thing there. You kill me also he's been there the whole time and -- headphones don't hear employee I'm haven't let's listen up and and him and I can't. Let your -- This column up and if I believe we'll look we'll work this we'll work is out it would have been great if we broadly that we may have to do a phone call with a -- The Vijay experience on an Entercom stations Seattle KI SW rock. And also former seahawk John -- is at the studio with a Steve is is among their their staff. These two cities and New Orleans and Seattle really are are opposites in so many many ways but the one thing that we haven't comedy is justice in. Credibly fanatical fan base. And not in turbulent and at the saints I think since fans dress up more that not likely the Oakland Raiders fans. But like. The -- at fans they do dress up as Seattle might not do that but Seattle is very very loud -- try yeah let's try to get back with the BJ Shea experience. I don't now we got you you guys don't where a governor who technology is technology to our friends the though it decide to go back to the tried and true. But the idea tonight of course a big big game for both teams New Orleans here in Seattle. As to what you don't want an element is of course at WW -- a huge huge station there you guys of course loving your saint. What are you guys saying about the Seahawks in this match up little what the opinion of of the the world -- in of -- PLC. Well the collective opinion is a lot of respect for Russell Wilson a lot of respect for Pete Carroll lot of respect for the team and also a lot of respect for the twelfth man a lot of respect for playing in that stadium under those conditions. And it's really interesting that these cities are so many miles apart over 2000 miles apart so opposite -- so many many ways. And yet this has suddenly become a very intense rivalry it's because you guys -- some of the playoffs a couple of years ago. Yeah that was a fun game for -- which at that time we didn't realize heralded pretty much the success that Pete Carroll and his group of Seahawks that we have now. You know it started there when -- zombies mode do what he did it at. I yesterday on not fox live it was -- many but I guess we do our teams have to the shortest quarterback at least in the -- not -- -- the entire NFL. I didn't Drew Brees is a short quarterback he's not Russell wasn't sure but he's not my style -- -- Now he's -- he's not a talk quarterback it quite often you see the balls get to get batted down but you know look these guys have both especially breeze with the with all of his records but both of these quarterbacks it doesn't matter. Earlier today they were talking about hand size that Drew Brees you know none of that matters because they've both proven themselves especially -- all the records and Russell Wilson is one of the premier. Upcoming stars and in the NFL. Not let's talk about how you guys perceive the weather being a factor tonight. Focuses chip itself. Yeah out. You know that's all that that's an interesting thing when you're talking about the fact that I -- we have John Moffett former seahawk and I I think -- -- -- John is that John. You know here you are you get to play on the circus that you played on in you know at that that it's actually feel for so long. What does that do to the Seahawks if in fact you know what the snows here we AD because we don't play until much either you know as far as when the world doesn't mean that we -- I I don't think. I don't know how much affect -- -- I think that's such an effective thing heavy rain will affect the game maybe the passing game and and such I'm emotional response to be. I think it dusting it most and they're still saying it could be rain in the Seattle area that we may not get the snow. But but this is so is rain a lot a lot worse that you know for a for a dude I was fell again heavy rain. Heavy heavy rain. Could be worse and must like that the -- -- member of the patriots -- -- grandma yeah outlet that really worked a little frustrated yeah. Except the start acting like it's it's kind of you know I -- and New Orleans has played enough very group called them played enough football Merrill pros I think. You know it'll -- I don't think the -- -- too much effect and I think both teams you know it's funny when it comes to perception it's cute you know you guys obviously had to deal with a lot of the negative perception do you guys after all that crap went down. You know what the end end end of course now the Seahawks with the suspensions and things that happened with us. It seems like these two teams of the best teams but they do have a black cloud over him a little bit. -- yeah it's something that we really forgotten about although there's still a guy and that in the French Quarter who want weekends that takes himself the gold that he stands on top of of a boxing he says it. He -- flipping off just in this it is statue -- position of afflicting people Lofton has signed says I'm this Roger Goodell gonna -- something like this like to get over you know minutes that and that's -- -- we really have moved on. You know earlier in the season there were a lot of fans and even the media America comparing this saints team to the 20092010. Team that won the Super Bowl. And I thought it was way too early for comparisons but there's something about this team in the way the saints have dealt with. And I injuries to key positions that shows that this is a team especially with the approval of the defense with. Rob Brown Tennessee defensive coordinator. This is a team that really does have been strong character and I think they're gonna beat Seattle tonight but it's it's not going to be an easy game and I wouldn't be surprised if it comes on either way. Well at the things that they are the same thing about hot they have a lot of depth because they've had injuries this season but they've always had guys the command. And it's funny how likely do what you did the talk about the saints -- I feel like the same way that folks talk about the hot here a lot of professionals and a lot of people outside of Seattle. It does feel like in -- way they're similar teams what the short quarterback and of course Russell Wilson it seems like a class guy Drew Brees is always seem like a class guided me. I can't you know and if it does feel like it's a mirror image thing and it is going to be a close game because. You know -- I've hired I had the opportunity do work in Seattle for two years time I'm from New Orleans on my back home but I but I love being in Seattle that -- ago a great city. But I I have to tell you that -- V that the city of the of a Seattle city of New Orleans are so different so many ways that the suburban street I think of -- Capitol Hill I think of I think a pioneer square which can be a little wild at times and built around. But this is so different from New Orleans I'd like to know and I all I noticed this when I was there I'd like to know. Why you guys think they're out is that it's Christine diversity. Fans have become so focused and wild about the Seahawks and so locked. -- -- -- it's a very very good question and and John you played here do you have any insight to what it is that it will what it is about the current batch of Seahawks. Including the teams you've played on which a recent. Because now we we at one point we couldn't. Even watch our games because they were black -- we could get anybody go to the stadium. And now we've got this ridiculous minutes of of riches of great tandem. The loudness what do we do you have any insight as to why that is I personally think is that tall man phenomenon. I think they retired the Jersey and really like brought the fanned them. And really incorporate them and really count on him and I think they've done a great job treatment and well and I think the fans responded that's a very good point because there was a time where they kind of this -- -- disenfranchise the Seattle fans and even mentioned the twelve man when you know and and all the sudden realize that we got to bring that back -- and so they raised the flag. And and then you know Paul Allen has done a great job of saying oh yeah we bring them back into it including this stadium that's designed to make the fans as loud as they possibly can be. And it and I think it's good how about you guys what you guys do to bring the fans back if you -- after you know after some negativity that was that you guys. Well I think it was just the collective result of this area you know we we go through so much with with storms and with the flooding not that you guys don't experience and your own. Not problems as well every every area has that but there is a collective resolve. And determination in this city and I think that transcends over into. In into the saints fans and and you know that there was a lot of bitterness after. Voted to hold -- negates a situation a lot of a lot of that you know denial people not wanting to admit that the saints could ever do anything wrong and you know you have to admit he's been in other teams may do -- but so what we got caught but let's move on but that really is in our. That is in our distant past right now and you know when you consider that we have an indoor stadium and I've been at every game so far this year it has been extremely loud. You know we're a little bothered by the idea that an outdoor stadium might have set the record for the wildest crowd. You guys had set the record I believe on a Sunday night against the 49ers. And then -- Kansas City broke it on a Sunday night's against believe Oakland. Well we are playing Carolina. This Sunday night that games -- -- to a Sunday night game this week so if you guys set the record tonight we've got to work on setting the -- record in the Mercedes-Benz superdome this coming Sunday. It's kind of a never ending I was just. I'd like you should at least give if you want to leave it announced that they didn't like commemorative plaque and. -- -- -- In the making is this something called it. City is that it's not like it's like to get married after the honeymoon annualized with the camp out there. And what can we have a little few years there. Or it's what you buy it a player's Jersey and and he gets traded. Get beat Italy match that's what that that's why I love the fact we have a twelve man mister you'll always try to learn that. I think everybody -- -- you know topic number that you know we mean there is -- -- the big game I am more excited about the fact that wrestle -- company normally outside of the guys. There are very excited I heard somebody in the -- the other -- say well I had no idea this was such a big deal I mean this is when the even bring the high class ladies to town. Yeah we go to break we got ladies here all the time but I said the high class -- and I. Don't I remember -- less government the year of the civil hearing a story about Sean Payton -- talking to the saints in the locker room and they were playing the Miami Dolphins in Miami -- but the record was but they were really good at that at that time. And the saints -- playing this was the 2009 season they went to the Super Bowl one and in 2010. And and coach Payton said guys. Remember what this feels like because we are coming back here. And I wonder if Peyton and and maybe even Pete Carroll had that same cut his speech tonight because with the Super Bowl being in New Jersey. And there's a good possibility that the weather's gonna be like this for the Super Bowl this idea of a preview for what the teams can expect it may be an inspiration. -- by the ways -- that's why I think you know the widely the hawks will go to the suitable cause the -- -- like the super -- into the crappy place Detroit. -- technically and nice sunny location for people or you know or in -- war -- for that matter I mean according to go to. I think New York in the winter really -- Erica. Is that the NFL irritates me sometimes of course that would be that would like you said but the cool thing is -- debt. Targeting New Orleans is really really has been like you say it's good the city's been through a lot and boy they bounced back and a great way and and the saints have been a big help that. So it's really hard to hate him. And it's also hard hit the -- -- a lot of quality people on their guys to play the game right and so it's sort of like -- -- that two good teams you don't want to see any of the little sympathy and I want my team to. Generally can't say anything bad about Seattle it's -- it's a it's a great city and that the people there are great ended the Seahawks are our team to be respected so this is going to be a a great matchup tonight in the whole country's gonna be watching guys let's do this if if the if the if the saints win and I'd like you BJ to go -- by his saints T shirt and Wear on the show as soon as you get the T shirt and then between got a picture and and post a picture on your FaceBook page. I and you web site and if the Seahawks win on the lot by his Seahawks T shirt and aware on on my show here in New Orleans well. Tell you what how about a somebody commercial does that. -- I am and I -- and I didn't want it to be and it. I'll go to my mind -- but that would. Fanatics that kind of look at myself but things aren't all rocket it's not going to out work skewed because he'd double the big player in the Asia. See that's fine there's a sluggish summer like this somebody does it and and we we all get to see it's somebody's sitting there in the studio. Wearing a -- -- put all things are okay but what you gotta be also you got to tell me up and grenade. -- this could try to do the NS David and. They'll look like yeah exactly and I'm not I'm not sure Homeland Security would allow that. I think everything commemorative company come -- yeah yeah I had -- but I think I -- it. Well you know what bothers me is I see people walking nightly downtown suburban streets -- like a block away from where I live. I see people walking down the street they're they're drinking one hurricane but they've got the empty container from the hurricane I -- from the the -- grenade they just -- so that means they're on their second and -- no good will come of that that -- that would be. Like guys let's let's talk tomorrow about the stock. -- Appreciate it right Vijay thank you an analyst John thanks Steve as well you're. And that's the BJ I Shea experience with this Steve and former CIA player John Moffett from KI SW. And Entercom station in Seattle we'll talk to those guys that tomorrow civil apartment what do great way to ease back into reality after a long Thanksgiving holiday weekend it's the Monday after that long holiday weekend I'm -- in for -- today and all this week. It's Monday Night Football the saints in the Seahawks that we just got off the year with the other show that BJ did BJ Shea experience and KI SW -- In Seattle we'll talk to the skies tomorrow so here's here's the deal. If the saints win. They're one of the guys on the show test where saints. T shirt. And take pictures of it tweeted out there on FaceBook and also put it on their station website. If the Seahawks win and I'll have to Wear a Seahawks shorter -- or Jersey. And we'll tweet that out novel supporter on our FaceBook page and to a putter on -- W a dot com. I do -- in Seattle very opposite in many ways but they do -- this this one common bond and that is the devoted fanatical fans and you know again my experience in Seattle. Led me to two to notice how interesting it was that this this particular city had a fans they were just this one because. You know Seattle's a very very interesting city very pretty a lot of his David it's not New Orleans. And I I say that the city's very opposite to from Seattle not in a negative way but did the cities are are are very very different. But. I just was surprised to see fans as dedicated and devoutly. Maniacal as said the Seahawks fans are they hope to senate. A record for the allowed just noise and NFL stadium tonight breaking a record that they had set. Which was broken by Kansas City. And it's a record that if they break it tonight we should set our sights on breaking it in the Mercedes-Benz superdome earlier this this season a couple of games ago I forget which game it was. But it was it was very loud and I notice the decibel level got a 2118. Well Seattle had dead set this record at a 136. Point six decimals. That it was broken in Kansas City with a 137 point five decibels. We need to try to break that. Next Sunday night. In overseas -- superdome against Carolina -- guys John -- color analyst joins us live from Seattle -- good morning. Good hokey what is being your sense of Seattle is a city like New Orleans is still behind the -- Seattle is -- behind the Seahawks. Which your sense of that the fan mentality right now. Well immediate. And out popped bigger average standard not bad but just kind of real action PP we've got a chance throughout the dinner last night. -- Everybody you know they'd be serious and we'll have certain big -- supplement supplements says sanction being held late. Talk about the matchup but yet this is. The Seattle area -- like he just say it is. Not really near where I would think that the fans would be about and the team. Nearly as much as they are. In it but they didn't wait for a long time. Is unity -- well man for a reason appeared just explaining would probably. But wanted to get that whole thing started but. I can remember you know back didn't. Early 2000 when we come up their play opinion is it's a really loud stadium. But I can do about it and I just didn't -- not -- -- you should be you know it's not a question. You know -- -- -- back when they were doing good -- got. You know what don't we get some -- Purdue on Sunday when she talks -- -- they're not played so well also it's sort of I don't know accused very unique atmosphere appear and you know it's hard for me indicate just how much noise in the superdome more in an outdoor stadium will plant somewhere else because -- incidents that we where Robert Carroll to ground out part of that all right good Christian ought to be the one that you need to add to do damage on -- -- not -- particularly. -- a hokey that so many different matchups in this game which stands out in your mind. Who. I don't -- nominates. It's true really get up it is -- eight and two really good defense is. I mean that's -- that's it's hard when -- measure up I know that's Seattle it's got the edge because. They are playing in their home stadium and it actually should be. But I mean when I -- it -- anything in particular. You know these are talking about a wide receiver gets deeper into backer. You know their front seven against the same topic of -- -- -- that's kind of been an issue for the -- all season long because I don't think they're. That particularly good today. Injuries Jahri Evans and like that but you're up late this thanks and to wind is definitely played better get their running game the one a little bit more. I guess the biggest thing in mind that I've been hearing about bad weather since. You know we've finished playing and the only Atlanta. They're ten days ago in it right now beautiful and Seattle but they're they're all perched possible no debt and their brains. You know -- -- -- conditions and going to be like here and you know eight hours or so well it. It's good episode right now that you could net her party's days. Yet when it's when is beautiful like that you could seem Mount -- to the south and the Olympics to their western mountains the cascades to the it it's it's a really beautiful area surrounded by. Lakes in the Puget Sound and finale today it's a very very pretty place. If the weather -- but the specific fronts to come in with quite regularity this this time of year and it's say it's not that common for it to be really nice day. -- in November December January in Seattle if the if it is sweats let's talk briefly about the passing game in the running game. Well I would think you're. You would -- the -- advantage Seattle. If it does gateway yet. Whether it's know what they're trying. You know could dominate got the star running back in March on election be you know he has -- it would end. The way that he runs a football team meeting Egypt a power runner from the word go and he's as good as there is to break in. Tackles and make yards after contact. Russell Wilson. You know it's not really quarterback that's known for. You just keep it down below the needed big chunks of yards. You know -- Smart you know take with the defense gave him blood. Seattle it's they've got a secondary that match is upping its assigned topic very well. So I would have to think if conditions and it turns -- that you have to get the advantage to. The Seahawks. Just because they're power running game and it short passing game the site produce anything that. You know we almost sank a running game you'd have to do that our community with Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles and Mark Ingram. So. It -- they like they are right now everything will be people -- I still at its Seattle the advantage because. Dimple and in their home stadium but if things they'll -- with the weather and I think -- -- happy -- the advantage of Seattle. Right Hokies next stated time and will hear you tonight at 740 kick off best play by play team in football Jim Henderson -- guy -- Christie -- on the side once again looking for extremists are doing right who is gonna win the battle in Seattle that's or WW a pretty general opinion poll.

A New Orleans and Seattle do have one thing in common they are the both play they've they are both the birth places of genres of music for New Orleans the birthplace of jazz in Seattle as the birthplace of grunge. And I in the early to mid nineties with the groups like Nirvana and Pearl Jam sound card sales and change those are some of the early ones that -- to come to mind. It was almost a revolution like through The Beatles created in the mid sixties have but it was more than one group even though there were it was more than just The Beatles but The Beatles were. Were credited with this incredible change in music. And they were a number of groups that did it by its music changed and the birthplace of that big.

My gosh what more can be said about the Iron Bowl Saturday afternoon between Alabama and Auburn Alabama going into the game ranked number one looked like they were going to repeat as national champions. The game was in Auburn upset by fourth ranked all over. And the way that game meant it was just. Unbelievable I mean I'm watching this go back and forth back and forth and it was quite obvious that Alabama was very tight in the early part of the game lead they didn't loosen up but you gotta give offered a lot of credit. And ended they had trouble Alabama had trouble with their field goal kicker and that's not the first time in Hewitt you know you'd think -- -- Alabama. And you Nick Saban you'd think that you'd be able to -- recruit and absolutely top notch kicker but apparently that has not been. A real strong point. But for. Beginning to be tied it it was 20/20 eight and in -- Alabama Detroit along field goal and for all over to catch it and brought it back for a touchdown was. -- heart stopping ending. To the Iron Bowl also wanna congratulate by album on the east Jefferson -- they -- borne eastern Friday night -- stadium.
