When it's warmer in the eyewitnesses forecasts and that is outside. Egypt. 546 will check your current conditions some of your text messages at 87870. And sports with Steve Geller. Saints getting ready they returned the practice field today. Yeah I sort of army I was nice deep snow in the early VW golfers as one -- -- -- to keeping warm. Keep a small dog in your jacket with. And now that's early practical for most people workers school but I can see where it would help the ego is one. Tip for keeping warm days and says but not a Rottweiler now that would be a bad. They average more remote start on the truck that is that advice and insight in this format to make it. I don't have -- -- -- get that and here's -- -- know I've this morning no real quick turn the car on went back inside had them record demand. Pentagon as. Got a warm up for a good time Alia for sure definitely at least 510 minutes those nice toasty -- -- and that of having their hands on the reusing theory we. I did that I went that started out of course if you currently. Heat or that if frost are on right away. And you're just getting frigid air blowing out of it makes it even worse items so there I -- shivering as the revenue on the road with my payment clubs. That help you that remote start is likely a God's gift to. Who has it -- in the cold weather at least you don't need him much around here again then. In the summer of happiness at the air conditioning on me in the that's true and I said it -- -- state we have a national champion Steve goes in with your morning's. Yes they're good morning everyone Auburn jumped on Florida State early in the BCS national title game but this seminal stormed back to win 304031. FSU quarterback -- as -- on the game winning touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin which just thirteen seconds left to play. In the game I'm -- -- gets us down Sylvester built -- line of scrimmage. And it's are you see KB won't want them in this dream come true the way to adapt please. -- Jordan pews and -- via Twitter that he has joined the saints the safety was drafted in the sixth round back in 2010 by Carolina and most recently played for Washington. She was seen action in 44 career games it is total 51 tackles one sack one forced fumble and two interceptions. -- rookie left tackle Toronto are instead looking forward to the challenge of taking down the top seed Seahawks on Saturday. He said that he's worked hard to get into the starting lineup and doesn't plan on ever looking back. And I thought process is working and is strictly -- burglary if fundamentals this planet they've offered you have to diagnose some of these days before you can go out to use its dictate but. If you don't have a big gate you won't be useful for many look. The Buccaneers formally introduced Lovie Smith as their new head coach one think Smithfield is vital. Is to restore the home field advantage Tampa Bay once head Raymond James Stadium. It's hard for opponents to come in. And win. We have got away from that a little bit and it -- time as we go to the future. Thus become irrelevant team again. Smith was 81 and 63 in nine seasons with the bears he was three and three during the post season including a loss to the colts in Super Bowl 41. And the Cleveland Cavaliers have traded away Andrew Bynum and three future draft picks to the bulls for all star forward well today. Just days after suspending -- the cavs were able to unload the senator before having to guarantee its contract. Today have four on sports talk QB to QB Drew Brees but at 630 you have a choice switch over to the big 87 the AM to continue listening to us. Or stalked or catch the pelicans at Miami Heat -- 1053. WWL let them. I'm Steve Geller and that your early morning on the export side 53 Dave -- Steve Geller with -- a chilly morning on your radio the saints now opening heat things up. As we get back to practice today along with safety Jordan here this guy's been pretty much out of football for the bulk of this year. But at some decent numbers the last few years yet last played in October with the Redskins and interestingly enough was part of their team. Last year during their wild card matchup against the Seattle Seahawks Washington did lose the game but he does have. Some game experience against the Seattle ballclub at least now that we don't know how the saints are making room on the roster for him but. I don't VW outs and sideline reporter Chris and Garrett says he doesn't think this has anything to do with Keenan Lewis and the head injury he suffered. So looks like Lewis may be able to play Saturday. He just don't know who won't be -- wait for word from the saints' official yet and I'm worried that it might be linebacker Parys Harrelson who went down in the Philadelphia Eagles game will find that the extent of his injury. But it just it might be him something with a chest depict oral issue. He might be done for the season by prime not a bad idea to get an extra defensive back on the roster for the saints rice than what we -- Philadelphia considering what happened which you Louis they do have the game they could definitely use the health Corey white. And struggled as did. Got to get the member's name right now I'm sorry that the touchdown impact or whoever you're thinking about was getting remember and thank you stable remembered get back even more towards. In fifteen minutes here on WWL am FM and that commonality forecast. It's cold outside that -- this. First runs leading the offensive backfield trying to think if there. You think about it how cold it is outside. Starting off this morning and it teens and twenties north and south of a -- to a cold snap definitely here and not warming up much this afternoon high of 39 today with sunshine. Tonight mostly clear by dropping again nineteen north of the lake and 28 here in the city. Before we seal of the have a warmup on Wednesday 53 and partly cloudy then by Thursday mostly cloudy and a high -- low sixties. From the Eyewitness News forecast senator I'm meteorologist Clark of -- It's 45 at the airport and it feels like fifteen which can win nor shall we Clinton's -- fourteen right now nineteen officially in the stands. -- -- -- -- -- Now like almost. Yeah. As and that's what happened that it is it is bloody cold enough yet. Any tips to keeping warm this morning for people have to get outside energy talking about. People not go to the QB it's Stewart and -- a lot less traffic on the highway swell guy is not yet. Added maybe just like go to work because it was cold -- Israeli policy calling it coal. While they can do that and what do we do what we have to talk about unemployment as a matter fact perhaps if you call it -- to join the ranks the Senate's gonna have a test vote today about. Extending unemployment benefits and the question is is there a reason for anybody not to find a job within six months -- to talk about. Guns in schools -- something like Colorado senators that. Science teacher lost almost forty pounds by eating McDonald's only. But the teacher eat. That healthier stuff to talk about unconventional weight loss and little bit about the battle in Seattle part two right it's cold outside -- off.
