Taysom Hill starting at QB

Recommended Posts

To be honest I think this is a cool story. Id much rather watch Taysom over Winston. I'm sure Peyton understands more about his players than we do. He started Bridewater last year because he was his best option. He clearly doesn't think Winston is his best option.

Tebow Jr

 

I don't think the Saints will eat a W

He’s a way better athlete than Tebow.

 

I think Saints will win. Game planning for Hill is a bit unknown at this point. He’s such a good athlete I think ATL struggles containing him. It’s possible he runs for more yards than he throws for.

If the Saints win it’s because the Falcons are a terrible team.

Well they aren’t great.
 

It’s not like the Saints get elite QB play every game and are all of a sudden losing that. All Hill has to do is scramble around and dump the ball off to Kamara and Thomas. Saints defense has been playing great. They would be the favorite regardless of who their QB is.

He has 10 completions in his career and most of them are due to wildcat type plays.... he'll be horrible tomorrow, guarantee it.

I don't think they are going to ask him to complete many passes tomorrow either. The ones he does will likely be easy little dump offs to wide open receivers. He's not going to be running a traditional Saints offense tomorrow. They could have success with a gimmick offense. ATL doesn't really know what to prepare for and had to prepare all week with an unknown of who the QB would be. 

 

Im not calling that Hill will be some great QB tomorrow. I just think the saints are a good enough team to hide his deficiencies as a QB and still get the win. He wouldn't be the first QB in the league to suck but still have success due to an unknown gimmick offense.

When it came to light that it would be Taysom Hill and not Jameis Winston, the questions came. From those who know Sean Payton well to those around the NFL: Wait, what?

Why would the backup not be the backup?


After conversations with several people involved in the situation, an explanation became clear as to why Hill, the do-it-all weapon, is expected to start at QB vs. the Falcons.

"Sean just wants to know," said one source with a deep knowledge of Payton's thinking.

So, Payton, who identified Hill's talents immediately off film from his time with the Green Bay Packers, wants to know if Hill is his starter for 10 years or not. The process begins today.
 

Hill took first- and second-team reps in practice this week, with the Saints making sure he got the full preparation for the biggest start of his life. While practice went well and Hill seemed prepared, he did battle nerves early on in the week. At one point, it seemed like the enormity of the situation might overwhelm him.

But he settled in and had a solid week. Expect Hill to find Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas early on short passes to get him in a rhythm and find success.


It is the biggest day in the career of Hill, who the Saints claimed in 2017 after he was released by the Packers. He was quickly identified as a player the team may want to claim. Payton, in particular, took a liking to him and believed there was potential.
 

Three years later, Hill has his chance. How it goes could have a major impact on the next decade in New Orleans.

And warranted. 

 

Hills stats were good but did he execute a drop back offense? I didn't watch a single snap so its an honest question. Ill eat crow if I'm wrong about Hill...

No deep shots but, yea, he did. He was hitting MT on outs with consistency. Stood in the pocket for the most part and hit guys in stride 10+ yards downfield. Under pressure. Did real well. He got lucky with a dropped INT inside the 5. And he lost a fumble on a 20 yard run when get got hit from behind. Other than that he played a very solid game. But I also was watching TEN so I may have missed stuff myself.
