Haslett speaks on back up Qb position
BACKUP QB: The second quarterback spot on the Saints roster still belongs to Todd Bouman, despite a less than impressive preseason.

"Right now going into the season Todd is No. 2," coach Jim Haslett said. "Probably more than anything because Todd is the holder for snaps on field goals and extra points. But if Aaron got hurt that would be open to discussion."

Bouman and J.T. O'Sullivan got more playing time than normal in the preseason because of an injury to starter Aaron Brooks.

In the final exhibition game Bouman played most of the game and completed 7 of 15 for 73 yards. He was intercepted once and sacked five times.

O'Sullivan completed 7 of 10 for 94 yards and a touchdown. He had no interceptions but was sacked twice.

"In Todd and J.T's defense, they got no reps at all in practice," Haslett said. "I'm not saying that's why they played poorly, but we threw them out there with maybe 10 reps."

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 08:25 AM.
