Sean Payton believes two young quarterbacks in the NFL will be benched by their veteran backup.
Appearing on Colin Cowherd’s The Herd, the former New Orleans Saints head coach predicted that Trey Lance and Tua Tagovailoa would both eventually be benched this year in favor of Jimmy Garoppolo and Teddy Bridgewater.
“I think there are seven or eight teams that we’re gonna see, not because of injury, we’re gonna see more than one quarterback play,” Payton said on the “The Herd”earlier this week. “I think, and I believe, don’t kid yourself, that we’re gonna see Garoppolo back in that lineup.”
The former NFL coach predicted that San Francisco and Miami will join Seattle Seahawks, Carolina Panthers and Cleveland Browns as teams that will start multiple quarterbacks this season due to poor performance.
Here’s the full clip:
Tua helped lead the Dolphins to a 20-7 win over Bill Belichick and the Patriots, completing a fairly clean 23-of-33 passes for 270 yards and a touchdown.
Meanwhile, Trey Lance struggled against the Chicago Bears.
