Holder: After his performance against the Jaguars, Jameis Winston will be named the Saints’ starting quarterback.

NEW ORLEANS — On Monday night, the world watched as Drew Brees’ replacement was crowned.
When the Green Bay Packers visit New Orleans in Week 1, Jameis Winston will be the starting quarterback. If not…well, there is no “if not” scenario.There was never a point this offseason when I felt Taysom Hill would beat Winston out for the position.
Throughout training camp and the first two preseason games, I’ve been anticipating Winston’s “win the job” moment.
Several Who Dats were perplexed as to why Winston and Hill’s debate remained a debate at all.
Hill gave a viable force to Winston during the preseason version of “Monday Night Football,” but Winston’s dominating performance should push Hill back into the Swiss Army Knife role, which will still serve as a key asset to the offense.Winston detonated during the Saints 23-21 win against the Jags in the preseason version of “Monday Night Football.”
He had a passer rating of 157.5 after completing nine of ten passes for 123 yards and two touchdowns.
Can I say that was reminiscent of Brees?
It had been
Nevertheless, you must consider that this occurred in the first quarter of a preseason game against the NFL’s weakest club last season.

Is Justin Fields on his way to become the Bears’ starting quarterback?

Justin Fields has made a lot of noise in his first NFL training camp, and he’ll have even more chances to do so this week in practice.
Fields will receive additional experience with the offensive starters and against the No. 1 defense, according to Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy.
This week, there is only one defense.
The idea is “part of the assessment process,” according to Nagy, who has stated throughout the offseason that Andy Dalton will start for the Bears in Week 1.
Many supporters, however, want to see Fields receive a chance after his preseason and practice performances.
When asked about the situation on Monday, Nagy looked unsure about anointing Dalton the Week 1 starter, though he did indicate Dalton is still the starting quarterback.
“I believe Andy had six plays (in the first preseason game),” says the coach.
With six plays, it’s difficult to say much good or bad.
“We’re going to get him some more snaps this preseason game,” Nagy stated, according to NFL.com’s Kevin Patra.
“And with Justin, I’ll go back to what I said earlier: we want to be able to view live plays and situations, and he’s got that.”
The only thing he can do now is keep doing it, and we must ensure that our strategy allows us to assess how effectively he performs in light of those circumstances.
In the end, we’re going to do whatever is best for the Chicago Bears.” Fields completed 14 of 20 throws for 142 yards and a touchdown in Chicago’s exhibition victory over the Miami Dolphins.
In addition, the former Ohio State standout carried for 33 yards and a touchdown.
Fans saw one play in particular (video here) that demonstrated his ability to create nightmares for defenses.
Nagy is likely to adhere to his plan of starting Dalton in Week 1 as planned.
Dalton, on the other hand, will almost definitely have to play well and win games in order to keep his job.
Nagy will be under a lot of pressure to give Fields a chance if the veteran struggles.

All of the qualities you’re looking for in a young player.
If you want to stay in this work for a long time, you need to make it a top priority in your life.
Whether you’re one year in, two years in, three years in, or five years in, you truly don’t know what you don’t know.
“As someone who has been in the game for 22 years, what I understood at five years in is quite different from what I knew at ten, and very different from what I know now,” Trask says.
It remains to be seen whether he will succeed Brady, but so far, he has received high praise from all the appropriate quarters.
