Here Is Every Insane Thing That Taysom Hill Has Done For The New Orleans Saints This Season

The New Orleans Saints are having one of those seasons that don’t come along often for all NFL franchises, but everyone has had to do their part. Drew Brees has led an offense littered with talent such as Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas. Cameron Jordan pilots a defense filled with guys like Marshon Lattimore and Demario Davis. Everyone has their position to excel at, but then, there’s Taysom Hill.

Hill is only in his second year in the NFL, and his first year didn’t register any stats even though he played in five games for the Saints. This season, he played in all 16 regular season games and he was also in for a number of plays against the Philadelphia Eagles in the Divisional Round of the 2019 NFL playoffs.

If anyone were to look at his stats for this season, they wouldn’t see anything that is overly impressive right off the bat. Checking out his numbers on ESPN, his numbers are actually quite low, but everyone has to remember that he is technically a quarterback and playing behind Drew Brees.

The answer to who will be leading Sunday's Who Dat chant in the Superdome for the Saints vs. Eagles playoff match-up was answered on social media today. Former Black & Gold running back and Reggie Bush tweeted that he and former Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma will be in attendance to fire up the crowd.

Both Bush & Vilma played together on the 2009 Super Bowl team and can hopefully bring some good luck to this year's squad. Kickoff in the Dome is at 3:40pm Sunday on WWL Saints radio. The winner advances to the NFC titel game and gets one step closer to the Super Bowl in Atlanta.

Saints vs. Eagles: Saints are 11-1 with Carl Cheffers at referee

The New Orleans Saints have had good luck with NFL referee Carl Cheffers officiating games, and he’s been assigned to their upcoming game against the Philadelphia Eagles in the divisional round of the 2018 NFL playoffs. He was the referee when New Orleans beat the Eagles 48-7 in their Week 11 meeting, as chance would have it, and the Saints’ all-time record with Cheffers overseeing the action is even better: New Orleans is 11-1 with Cheffers at referee. If you’re feeling superstitious, knock on wood.

Now, sure, that’s neat. But it’s not like Cheffers has acted with outright favoritism to the Saints: in 12 games with the referee, the Saints have committed 89 penalties (7.4 per game), racking up 859 penalty yards (71.6 per game, and 9.6 yards per penalty). Compare that with their opponents, who have been flagged 91 times (7.6 per game) to the tune of 718 yards (just 59.8 per game and only 7.8 yards per penalty).

Sean Payton always seems to find unique ways to motivate his players. On Monday, 3 armed guards brought $201,000 with the Lombardi Trophy on top of it. Payton told the room that they could all have the cash and the trophy IF….they win three more games.

“If you saw that money in front of you, you would get excited to,” smiled defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins. “If we get it done, I need it in twenties all in a duffle bag delivered to my front door.”

NFL players receive a $29,000 bonus for divisional playoff games and $54,000 for conference championship games. The Super Bowl champ receives an additional $118,000.

Buccaneers trade sixth-round pick for Bruce Arians rights

It's official, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have their new head coach.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Tampa Bay has finalized the deal, and former Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians will become the 12th coach in Buccaneers history. However, the hiring wasn't the easiest. According to Schefter, the Buccaneers acquired the head coach's rights from the Arizona Cardinals, along with a 2019 seventh-round draft pick in exchange for Tampa Bay's 2019 sixth-round pick.

Arians, a two-time Associated Press NFL Coach of the Year, technically retired from coaching last year after the Cardinals struggled through an 8-8 season. All things considered, it's impressive that .500 is a bad season for Arians. Of course, Arians won't return for just any job. There was interest in the Cleveland Browns, but Tampa Bay also is apparently an attractive destination for Arians.

A big part of Arians leaving football last year was a combination of health scares. According to a report from the Tampa Bay Times, the Buccaneers made Arians undergo a complete physical at a Tampa hospital on Saturday, and it included a discussion with his personal physician as a part of the interview process, a tidbit originally reported by Fox Sports' Jay Glazer. ...
