The New Orleans Saints are stuck with a quarterback Andy DaltonCoach Dennis Allen said.

“We’re going to go with Andy. We’ve talked about it as a staff. I’ve had a chance to talk to both quarterbacks, and I feel like right now, Andy is the direction we want to go,” Allen said Wednesday.

Play better as a team. You want to see somewhere but play better There are many places where they should be and this is where we start.”
