Nine minutes after 5 AM at the early edition WWL first news on this nineteenth of August 2014. Fair it is Tuesday -- better than Monday he a whole lot better so give you an animal. And making it through Monday and -- Tuesday one day closer. To the weekend and that third. Saints pre season game. -- threw three. Is expected to play the bulk of this. Powell and -- -- Third game they use that play into the second man that's right -- and on the last on the hardly play him at all if you know maybe like 10% if and the at all. We're gonna be good to see who administered breezes are not -- yeah well and sounds like he's doing pretty well practice. Will find out from Steve don't document what's gone on with practice today yesterday it'll rain shower just before practice and yeah saves that thing that I. And on practiced. And the heat and moved -- indoors. With the states Europe today and when fans can go -- plenty of heat today aren't you. I'm sure are dying to know what Nacional -- -- absolutely national day countered that come tells us today. August 19 that national aviation day power -- go for flight. National soft serve ice cream. Good he likes officer greatness. I went to a restaurant news. That is self -- -- and machine and -- the -- of going there is that the kids to make nice and you hear ya you do your own thing in -- -- on sadistic on an awful lot earlier in the day off -- -- there flames shooting out of the soft serve ice cream machine. With a big disappointment yeah. I would say Lisa rose soft -- it. Many many years ago I took my kids to restaurant that it's not in the had a big sign written curse of over the that soft serve. Well mine youngest and not really learn to -- -- yet and thought it said soft Steve. Saw Steve yes however cents -- right that's and it's the stay that way again to beat him off the -- on it. Those things we'll stay where if you if they will indeed that we have a new chief. Of the -- how about that you know about a month ago. A friend of mine called me who used to work in law enforcement at the causes all throughout the -- -- needed surpasses that on on these -- is on. And -- that that was true but it was a month ago I mean really a month ago and as Clancy Cuba is still do it this discussion. Apparently began with the second term. Mayor Landrieu now when he was elected into office for the second time there are already talking and then. About paid time finding -- chief. So. It's tough out is that typical all I'd just. I can't even imagine and and in fact and not that I had a a premonition. But even yesterday before we have this news something made me -- I think it was I was thinking about Ferguson. And then I was thinking about the crime fight here and then I thought about Ronald -- press and I thought. Who would want that job. You know like -- man perhaps off there are a lot of doubt in this world that you wonder who would you who would want they. That now and police chiefs in New Orleans I believe it is yeah jobs because. I think it is a largely. Thankless job it is -- job that. You're almost certain to fail only because you look at the 300 years history of this city. And violent crime has been a problem. From the beginning and a it's been one that no chief and mayor combination has been able to truly fix. In the three centuries out. Back to the pirates and before Newton so you know you're dealing with -- in impoverished. City. Buyer and Marge you're dealing with -- his history of crime. You're dealing with historically poor education. You're dealing with a lack of parenting. In many cases where kids are raising themselves are being raised by the other kids in the neighborhood or by siblings are really no. I mean you could stack up the challenges that you face trying to keep the city of new war island safe and reduce crime. And it's a tall -- Now it seems no matter what any chief. Implements. We have the same stuff over and over again the experts have told us for many years the police chief cannot make parents be parents. Police chief and mayor for that matter cannot fix the education system. Police chief -- that. Fix the poverty problem a police chief cannot fix the historic. Embedding of crime as a way of life. In the city of New Orleans so all of that being said facing all of those challenges. Together. Through. Whether it was implementation plans effective policing whatever was. This chief in this -- together did bring crime -- a thirty year low. I'm murder anyway meanwhile ya -- very I mean there are your love ice or there's really a long list of accomplishments. Made underserved pass if you will one and the current mayor but a lot of critics say is a long list of things he screwed up -- darn right and destroyed in a row and heard the about police officer's ability to earn. Significant live -- And -- a lot of griping. So the question I guess I have it is do you think -- was successful. As -- hopefully. That's a good gore was successful and to go out it's a good question he's gone he's gonna go teach at Loyola. And -- got a heck of a pension -- experiences and again a 140000 dollars for the rest of his life thank you. I guess in that respect. As miserable as the job is that's pretty decent I guess the teams pay for life after. Retirement. There are advantages to serving the public folks and for a lot of people joy of getting you know you did serve the -- Text creativity it's. I'm not. Saying that he was a victim -- thing you should boo -- over him I'm not saying any of that -- the scariest -- he was successful in a what is eight by eight. Clear definition difficult job -- -- 877. And I want to mice and talk about I -- -- -- because that was -- cut -- -- Sports with Steve -- your forecast right after this a lot of people taxi and it's mediate seventy -- that they don't feel bad for the achieve because he's gonna get between eleventh that eleven and 121000 dollars a month for the rest of his life. Now look at column but my question was has he been successful. One person -- today -- 7870. Not successful. Fell straight into the good Ole boys ways and didn't do enough internal reform. Those as the last good police chief we had with Richard Pennington didn't have ties -- -- world prior. -- ten year rights does that mean that you think department -- new police chief. Should be an outsider come in and -- should be some on up through the ranks and do you think that she was successful. Then you think this forecast this is excess. Very hot and very humid today actual -- about 93 but it's gonna feel more like 10210520. Factor and that moisture and not much the way your brain only at 20% chance for a downpour today. Overnight mostly clear and then back to a 20% rain chance for Wednesday and Thursday that means both -- the afternoons around 93. From the pinpoint forecast center and urologist -- tell. And 87%. Steve gal I can see you suggest to win saying she's a 103. It's gonna feel like between honored -- five and when you get on that. Turf out there at the -- deal with no shade. It gets even if feels even -- with the sun reflecting off the grass. Yet -- late. Then -- the players are looking forward to that as well dad have led to a lot of fans are disappointed the saints moved indoors the last many yesterday is that shower moved over. But I guess you're pretty happy to be in the eighth CNN but the Fed that players were -- Out definitely with walking outside after the rain it's kind of cleared up we're kind of surprised that they called it's overly but. Deathly left that muggy humid feeling outside and don't mind being in the indoor facility one day. Yet you don't want a practice football in a Sauna but nonetheless the saints again some guys back on the field and get ready for the third street. He's in the morning everyone on wall -- rookie Brandon cooks miss Monday's practice due to illness fellow receiver Kenny stills practiced fully for the street second straight day. As he's coming back from quad injury. Stills got -- -- warning in West Virginia and is trying to make up for lost time. There's a lot of team building and camp. You know getting in shape get the -- withdrew its. -- subtle -- I've been focusing their attention and -- -- -- you know felt comfortable. The saints are back on the practice field at 11 AM and it is open to the public weather permitting. Brown's head coach Mike Patton had hoped to name his regular season starting quarterback by today. But that was before Brian Hoyer and Johnnie -- and -- failed to impress during Cleveland's 2423. Loss to Washington on Monday Night Football. Porter was two for six with sixteen yards and five series -- -- completed just seven of his sixteen throws the 65 yards and a touchdown. -- football also raised the middle finger as he jogged away from the Washington sideline after a play late in the third quarter. So your words exchanged with me throughout the integrity of the game every game week after week and should have been smarter -- my football game and the cameras. We'll probably solidly army so does seem to be smarter roughed up. Steve Ballmer introduced himself to the LA clippers fans at a rally celebrating his ownership of the NBA team the former Microsoft CEO made his way through the crowd inside the Staples Center exchanging high fives and clapping furiously as he took the stage. Not gonna be stuck in the past -- moment for the future. And nobody should overall read a new. But I think if you're not being Bolger being timid in the LA clippers are gonna be bold. And defending champion Raphael Nadal has withdrawn from the upcoming US open because of an injured right wrist. The final Grand Slam event of the year starts next week in New York the 27 year old Spaniard was hurt July 29. While practicing and was told by the doctors that the next week because we are cast on his race for two or three weeks he'd hoped to be able to return in time for the opening. Therefore on sports talk the latest from day three of saints camp in Metairie. Including coach -- key players and analysis from our resident -- which early morning look at sports I'm Steve you know -- record. -- -- on Steve -- with you on your radio on this not Monday congratulations on away from him through Monday on Tuesday. So Kenny stills back that's good. We had been expecting terrorist bird back on the field that happen no insurance -- would just say he sooner than later hopefully today. Waiting on that so we haven't seen a lot of Champ -- haven't in a lot of there's bird but it breweries is back and Kenny stills -- back. Yet -- miss another one missing us there was brain and cokes and fourthly -- revealed that he did have some kind of stomach flu had a bit of a fever. I'm OK with that right exactly nothing physical I'd much rather he got all the some bad meat -- -- -- -- -- has got -- Miami. Then as any sort of physical injury that won't -- it's -- health you know quickly. -- also keep -- Lewis was at practice on Sunday evening but Monday.

In the meantime we'll all deal with the heat. -- hide the fact. That. I am not -- break from either in a couple of thunderstorms in the afternoons although I think we thought better chance yesterday. And what will have today reached -- down even further to just 20%. Actually keep eyes. Ninety read through the rest of the work week and -- 94 for Saturday and Sunday. And had a lot of rain even through the weekend now you know you a couple of -- or is -- your New Orleans seems to be one of the spots -- -- position we -- -- ultimately north of the -- We seem to be one of those areas that get the thunderstorm development not a lot out there for the next authorities and I today you know folks it's pretty simple 93 then 94 -- little shot -- showers otherwise humid muggy and just. Downright uncomfortable and cut through the rest of August get as close -- September but they get close to September but the good news is when a word about any topic it is too little ways that we talked about yesterday near the central Atlantic both have a little chance of development right now that.

What market nerves and made it seems to ignite saints' fans as the former Heisman Trophy winner has lived up to expectations. For his first three years in New Orleans. Ingram has looked more confident heading into this season though and many wonder though if that's because he'll be a free agent at season's end. I think he moved over exaggerated I mean you know sport and obviously but every is important just say this year is not put more emphasis on this year. Then past thirty years -- because my country here is ridiculous. You can see -- in the states on the practice field at 11 AM today fans are permitted to attend weather permitting. Johnny -- they'll struggle to hit open receivers and added another gesture to his repertoire in the Cleveland Browns 2423. Loss to the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football. Means they'll completed just seven of sixteen passes for 65 yards and a touchdown. Now I'm pretty hard on myself I don't think I did a very good job I think there's a lot of room for me to improve. On -- -- I was sort of had back -- football didn't complete a middle finger to the Washington sideline as he jogged away late in the third quarter. Meanwhile Brian Hoyer also had a bad night going two for six for sixteen yards.
