Although a starting quarterback hasn't been named yet, Teddy Bridgewater is likely to be the guy amongst the Saints coaching staff.  Many fans would like to see Taysom Hill get a chance to show what he can do over Bridgewater.  But how much impact do the fans have in who will replace the injured Drew Brees? .

The Cajun Cannon Bobby Hebert says not much.

"Coach Payton is so established, he knows what's best for the team, and I think he has that trust factor that he's going to go by what he sees and who's going to give him the best opportunity to win," Hebert said. 

What about the fans who want to see Taysom Hill get in the game?  Hebert says fans always pull for the backup.

"From a fan's perspective, the backup is always the fan favorite," Hebert noted. 

Hebert said he does expect to see both Bridgewater and Hill in Sunday's game.

Why couldn't you do a quarterback by committee," Hebert said.  "He had a handful of plays when Drew was the quarterback, now he can time that times 3."  

WWL's Kristian Garic agrees.

"We've seen the packages how creative Sean Payton gets with Taysom Hill and putting them both on the field at the same time, it certainly a possibility," Garic said.  "In fact I would say not a possibility, but a likelihood."
