From 1987 to 1990, John Fourcade lined up under center for the New Orleans Saints as their starting quarterback 11 times. He won seven of those games. The former Ole Miss standout now hosts radio and TV broadcast for both college and NFL games. For the Saints, Fourcade is the host of "Inside the Red Zone," a post-game show on WGSO 990 AM.
"They are one of the only 3-0 teams left and if you looked at you'd be surprised. But you play the football games and you play them to win and they don't care how it gets done, they are winning. They're not turning the ball over and have a solid defense and solid young quarterback in Ryan Tannehill," Fourcade said.
One thing that may present a problem for the Dolphins, Drew Brees versus an inexperienced Dolphin secondary.
"I know their secondary is very young and that's going to be a big concern tonight in the game against Drew Brees who like to throw the football," Fourcade said. "Obviously, I'll bet you that the secondary will be well tested tonight for the Miami Dolphins."
Fourcade knows the Dolphins are a surprise at 3-0 but knows very few teams survive the Superdome and the Saints on Prime Time Broadcasts these days.
"At home its hard to beat the Saints – night football and Prime Time – they've won the last eight Prime Time games they were on," he said.
No stranger to Monday Night, Fourcade took on the Eagles and 49ers in Prime Time action and he knows its "tough to play the Saints in New Orleans."
The Ole Miss alum also hosts a collegiate TV show, Coaches Cabana, where fans can watch the game and interact with Fourcade and other college coaches via social media.
"It's a blast. I didn't know what to expect but once we got rolling its been great," he said. "We do everything at Hooters Restaurants in Louisiana. Basically, we interact with fans at the game and fans at home."
According to Fourcade, Coaches Cabana has had "three million hits" after one show.
"It's fun and it keeps me involved in all aspects of the game."
