7:31 am
that frozen pond and they broke up the ice around the swan which eventually climbed up the embankment and headed to a nearby neighborhood. love it. lottery fever just keeps on growing across the united st states. so nobody hit the big jackpot the mega millions last night. so that jackpot has now grown to $418 million for friday's drawing. how coincidental 418 is my favorite number. this is as the powerball jackpot stands at $440 million for tonight's drawing that's other one this is only the second time both major lotteries have reached this amount at the same time. i'll be back. i'm heading to rodman's get some tickets. steve, over to you. >> lot of skins fans would like to hit lottery not just a winning season but getting to the big game. it is decision week fort redskins the season is over. the healing begins for the players who have been hurt all season. what about for the fans? what happens with kirk? he has meet and greet coming up on friday maybe he'll riri veal this future plans but probably w't
7:32 am
what's ahead for the new year fort jr. broken kins liz with the washington post. we don't typically talk redskins this time of the morning but such a big thing right now. not just the kirk season. the end of the season relook back and reflect. with the new year let's look forward right now. i guess number one the injury bug that was with this team. is it something that can be prevented or not? >> you'd like to think so and like to think that there are ways that the team can help players, um, you know, get in shape before they start sustaining all the hits, and recover after the hits. and there are a lot of players who in this era believe in yoga and pilates and working their soft tissues. so they're going to look into that and it needs to be a priority. >> literally had almost half of the active roster. >> yes. >> equivalent on injured reserve this year. >> yes. >> which seems to be an out liar compared to past seasons. can you look at that now with the glass half full and say, okay, if anybody
7:33 am
thee it would be a better team or this is football these things happen you have to be prepared. >> sure. i think the decision to bring back coach jay gruden for a fifth season fans are pretty split. if you want to make the case for gruden you, definitely point to injuries. i think that's a legitimate thing. i mean, to close jordan read, chris thompson two of your key player makers on offense, the first round pick in the draft, again, to injury, i would argue that had they had all those players available, they would have won two or three more games minimum and that probably would have put them in the playoffs. >> i didn't happen, though. >> no. >> let's start with a couple of things here. liz, you covered this team for a very long time. >> yes. >> that decision to keep grey jay gruden, good decision or not? >> i think it was good decision. dan snyder and his 19 years of owning the team he's been through eight coaches, and if there's one broad umbrella, um, dysfunction witness redskins i think the past two decades it's
7:34 am
so i think there is an argument to be made for staying the course with the coaching staff. or with gruden and we'll see what he does with his staff. >> right. gruden stays on. yesterday he has his end of the season. >> yes. >> press conference. what did you take out of that, what he said? anything stand out to you? >> probably the luke warm summation of kirk cousins se season. um, he complimented kirk fort 4,000 yards which is third consecutive year of 4,000 yards. did a lot of good things but they missed the playoffs, and had a losing record, and quarterbacks ultimately are judged by losing records. so it wasn't a resounding thing like he's my guy. >> right. >> we're going to grow together. and he's complimented him throughout the season. so it wasn't a smack down but it was just kind of clear eyed frank, you know -- >> if we were to read into that, would you look at it like we're trying to soften the blow if he does leave for the f
7:35 am
him, or do you look at it this can go either way. if we do keep him we said, okay, we didn't say anything bad about him. >> right. right. those are good questions. i don't see gruden as a guy with a lot of guile. he's pretty frank. but, upping, the thing -- the thing that made the nfl so successful it's a bit of par paradox. so it succeeds because fans develop this attachment to the players. but it also succeeds because owners don't develop an attachment to players. they're not sentimental, and it's always a business decision. and because of the redskins inability to sign kirk cousins when the price was lower. >> right. >> they're looking at now having to pay an exorbitant amount to keep him from leaving and so they're not able to say, is he a good quarterback? can we win with him? not question is, is he a franchise quarterback? is he like one of the top five? that's an extraordinary bar. >> much more business decision
7:36 am
>> yeah. >> look, every other media outlet in the country saying, denver is a great fit for him. we've seen carson palmer retired in arizona. does he stay or does he go? what's your gut feeling now. >> my guess he'll go. i don't think the skins will pay what he takes to franchise him. he hasn't shown a lot of interest in negotiating toward a long-term deal. i think in his case, it's not about i want the top dollar. i think his decision will be based on he wants to play for a team that is stable. an organization with a history of stability. he wants to play for team that believes in him. and he wants to play for a team that's going to contend for super bowls. who wouldn't want that? but that's consistently his criteria and it's hard for us to i think realize that he's had no say in this workplace for six years. >> um-hmm. >> and who among us wouldn't want to have a little self-determination. >> at least the opportunity. >> yeah. based on the three tighe criteria you gave in the last
7:37 am

of snow. if you're well south and east, and light snow in the immediate 95 corridor we're not talking about a lot of snow here locally but the thing that has his concerned the temperatures have been so cold and will remain so cold every flake will get a chance to stick to the pavement so that will be a big concern tomorrow morning. blizzard conditions boston, eastern new england, this storm system is really going wrap up. they're talking about potential for 60 or 70 miles per hour winds along the cape. it's going to be unfortunately a disaster up there. all right. real quick alerts. yes. winter storm warning now this is where the heaviest of the snow will be salsbury, ocean city we now have winter weather advisories for calvert and saint mary's county. maybe two to 4-inches here and lesser amounts for us. but we are looking at the potential for those advisories to be expanded further north and west later today. so how much snow we talking about? i think general al dusting to an inch in the immediate 95 corridor then higher amounts as you get south and east. i've treated this tucker fox5 if you have questions about the snow or look carefully at that snowfall forecast.
7:49 am

8:03 am
those two weeks without engines running and so when they came in on tuesday morning some of these stalled, some wouldn't even start up and so we saw about 200 routes being impacted by this yesterday and we're seeing the same thing. not as bad as yesterday but we're seeing the similar thing happen this morning. what you're looking at right now is the fairfax county website for bus delays and if you take look here, they're citing break downs, bus troubles. we've got two buses headed for holmes middle school running behind by 30 minutes because they broke down. a bus for cooper middle school also broke down. so there's a 30 minute delay. some businesses for fairfax high school, south lakes high school and mount vernon high school are running behind by 20 to -- 52 tone 20 minutes, and then off bus headed to montrose alternative learning center in the alexandria section of the county. they are experiencing bus trouble and running hyped by 30 minutes and then whitman middle school as well. glasgow middle school citing a minor delay there. but out of 8700 bus routes in th
