During Sean Payton’s press conference today, he confirmed that the offensive plan for Sunday’s game against Seattle will include Teddy Bridgewater and Taysom Hill. After last weeks drubbing at the hands of the Rams Payton is looking to get the offense rolling early in the game.
Obviously this new role will affect Hill’s placement on special teams and as a TE, but the news is welcoming to Saints fans, who have long clamored to see Hill play as our starting QB.
“We’ll approach this game with two quarterbacks and we’ll see where we’re at with it. We’ll have the right plan relative to what those guys are going to be doing.” – Sean Payton
This news is also something the Seahawks will need to prepare for. This two QB approach adds a new wrinkle to the Saints offense while Drew Brees recovers from surgery on this thumb.
The Saints lost last week 27-9 to the Los Angeles Rams. A game in which Drew Bress tore ligaments in his hand during the first quarter. Teddy Bridgewater took over for the Saints after Drew’s absence and completed 17 of 30 passes for 165 yards. The team was only able to muster 6 more points during the course of the final three quarters.
This is a developing story that we will update as new reports start to come in.
