Surprised this thread doesn't exist already. This has been discussed a lot with Drew's injury, but a lot of people lurk but don't post, so just fun lets have a poll. Coach Payton is obviously going to do what he thinks is best but that's not what this poll is about, this poll is about if you had the choice who would you like to see under-center? Lets not get lost in the weeds with "let see how they look this week then decide" type answers, so for the purposes of this poll you pick one QB you'd want to start for the entire 6 weeks until the Bye, no swapping due to performance, one guy. Whether your choice is for entertainment, evaluation purposes, or who gives us the best chance to win, is completely up to you, but if you had your wish (out of these to guys, sorry no Drew Brees and no tacos) who would be at starting QB for our New Orleans Saints for the next 6 games?

Or maybe there not, There was non-existent separation between receivers and DB's yesterday, no holes for AK41 to run through and an O-Line who'd apparently rather start with 1st and 20 than first and 10 and yet TB is responsible for all of that and TH walks through defenses like a ghost. Were you drunk or stoned watching the game yesterday?
The fact that you think people are basing this off of 1 game shows that this discussion is going no where with you.

I'm not making anything up n I don't necessarily support either of em. He was garbage against starters during last yrs preseason n I've seen no indication that he'll improve against starters since he only shines against guys who half of em end up on practice squads if not totally out of the league by the time the actual season starts
He was "garbage" in the preseason of 2018, when he'd been with the team for like a week. That's what you're basing his current abilities on? He sure seems to know the entire offense pretty well. Well enough to play QB snaps in real games last year.

Teddy was signed big as an insurance policy. But all he's shown in games is a QB who mentally cannot process our offense. No command, no confidence, no chemistry.

Love to be wrong, but it's going to get ugly. Maybe Teddy comes out and is effective for a quarter with a short, quick passing game but no way he can handle 3rd and long, or sustain any consistency across multiple possessions against the defenses Saints will face all year. Defenses will double Kamara and Thomas and dare Teddy to find and be accurate with the other receivers. No need to blitz if Teddy holds the ball too long and cannot pull the trigger.

if the Saints are not scoring TD's, the defense will wear down and the morale of the team will crater.

The coaches have had the luxury of not having to coach offense so much with a HOF'er, genius, and deadly-accurate passer in Brees. If Bridgewater does not raise his game, then that's going to be a coaching problem also.

Hate to sound cynical, but I just call it as I see it. Right now, Teddy comes across as a paycheck-player, a JAG.

Prove me wrong Teddy!

Teddy is the answer right now. He has a role here, and now it is time to fullfil that role. Taysom has a role and I don't think it will change. If the Brees injury was a season ender, I would feel differently. Taysom could provide an emotional spark and excitement to the whole team, especially Sean Payton which I think would be fun. Right now, we need Bridgewater's leadership and experience to get us through the next couple months.

But not well enough to keep them from overpaying for Teddy

They paid for Teddy before they'd seen anything from Hill yet this year. And with the way Payton has talked about Hill since seeing him in camp and through the preseason, he's sure been more complimentary of Hill than he has Teddy. That doesn't mean they're going to start him over the $8 million backup, but it does give us hope that if Teddy just can't get it done, there's another QB already on the roster - who Payton has intimated is Brees's successor - who can take over and probably rally the team to some wins.
