It is said that the most popular guy on the team is the backup quarterback because every time fans get disgruntled about the starter, they imagine life with his backup running the show instead.

But it's a be-careful-what-you-wish-for season in the NFL, with 42 quarterbacks having started games in the first five weeks. Some are doing fine. Some are not. Some are getting hurt and leaving things in the hands of the third-stringers.



Teddy Bridgewater is 3-0.

When Drew Brees injured his thumb in the Saints' ugly Week 2 loss to the Rams, there was some degree of concern in New Orleans about Super Bowl dreams ending early. But Bridgewater, the highest-paid backup quarterback in the league for a reason, has stepped in and guided the Saints to victories over the Seahawks, Cowboys and Buccaneers. The Saints sit at 4-1, Brees is already posting videos of himself throwing the ball, and it appears that New Orleans is in position to stay even better than afloat during its Hall of Famer's absence.

We begin this week's Overreaction Monday column in the Big Easy, with Touchdown Teddy.

Re: Teddy Bridgewater will get paid this offseason

There are backup QB's that have done much less and got paid. I salute Payton for this move. We stole a Pro Bowl QB and are extracting all the good mojo out of him. There is no reason he can't go undefeated until the CPT gets back. He will be worth a king's ransom end of season.

I could see us getting 2-3 early round picks if this continues.

His family is now admitting he was adopted. They are willing to take DNA test to prove it. They tried to do something honorable but unfortunately sometimes, there is a reason why children are put up for adoption.

He's going to be a free agent, so they'd have to trade him before the deadline, if they are going to get picks for him. Obviously that will not happen, given the current situation.

Hard to tell at this point if he'll be a hot commodity.

If he goes 5-0 while Brees is out, then yes just based on the record he'll get attention. But he'll have to produce at please 1 more day like yesterday to get the big bucks.

Re: Teddy Bridgewater will get paid this offseason

It's looking more and more like a QB controversy.

Kamara sure has got the goods on those touch passes.

QB controversy for where he's going to end up next season?

Because I know you don't mean when Drew Brees gets healthy.

Yes I meant when Brees is healthy. Kamara has shown with 1 pass he has Drew, Teddy & Taysom beat.

Seriously, though, are we keeping Drew or Teddy? A question I'm good with tabling until March 2020.
