Jim Henderson's Black & Gold Rewind: Week 1 continues September struggles

(WVUE) -

Monday night's 29-19 loss in Minnesota marks the eighth straight September game that the New Orleans Saints have lost, a streak that FOX 8 Saints Analyst Jim Henderson sees as a sign of more trouble on the horizon. 

"That was the talking point throughout much of the offseason that the Saints had to start faster than they have recently and while it's only one game in September, the schedule certainly doesn't get any easier."

With a well-rested New England Patriots team coming to town coming off their own season-opening loss, Henderson is concerned about the lack of a pass rush exhibited against the Vikings. 

"If you put Tom Brady in that sort of position, if you don't hit Tom Brady, he's going to totally pick you apart perhaps better than any quarterback in the modern age."

Jim Henderson provides analysis of the Saints on FOX 8 each week on Thursday during FOX 8 News at 10 PM. The day after games, he calls into FOX 8 News at 8 AM for the Black & Gold Rewind, then joins FOX 8 News at 5 PM for his Commentary and finishes the day with his Black & Gold Review Show at 10:35 PM. He also contributes to the 14 editions of FOX 8 Live Tailgate, which typically airs at 10 a.m. on Sundays before Saints noon games.

    De La Salle doesn't own a state title in football YET. But after watching the Cavs beat Class 4A heavyweight Karr, I'm convinced this squad has their best shot to win the crown in 2017. Quarterback Julian Gums is one of the best in the state. If he wears down, running back Kendall Collins can take over. Collins racked up three touchdowns against a very strong Karr defense. 1) John Curtis The Patriots absolutely thrashed Parkview Baptist 66-28 in Baton Rouge. October 27th can't get h...

    Ja'Marr Chase will show off his talents in the Under Armor All-Star Game come January in Florida. It's the who's who of top players in the country, and Chase is no doubt in that class. He makes big-time plays for Rummel, but he's not just a star on the gridiron. "He's a three-sport athlete. A state champion in track. A letterman in basketball, football letterman," said Rummel Head Coach Jay Roth. "Now he's an Under Armour All-American. He's worked hard at his craft. Wh...more>>
