If Drew goes down Winston takes the field and Taysom Hill will not start at quarterback in his absence unless Winston has a stroke. Taysom has a very important role on this team and he can continue to play it and make it easier for Winston to fill in were Drew to go down.

Take it to the bank.
We were both wrong

Guess you got your wish.
Not the way I wanted it :tears:

So many injuries today. Still finished with a solid win, but Winston needs more confidence in his throws. Looked to be 2nd guessing a lot.

Should Winston play the entire 2nd half if we are up 30+ points? I know Drew probably would like to be in the game, but I think we need to see how Winston does.
Also being a baseball fan thanks for JINX!!!

What, fumble? No ball security with that guy.
Well, evidently so. He'll run, pitch and toss the occasional pass. He'll be Taysom, but I don't see Payton going to a RPO offense and sitting Winston on the sideline.

I wasn't. Next week if Brees can't go, Winston is the starter and Hill will continue to do what he does. He may do it more, but winston will be the QB just like he was today.

I guess the good side of this is seeing if Winston can lead the offense and sign for a long term deal, take a shot at a draft pick, or re-signing Drew for another deal.

Are you wrong yet? Maybe Payton is sandbagging us but it looks, for now at least, like Payton does not think Jameis will play or that his bad habits were fixed.

It has always been at the back of my mind that 31 Teams, some of whom desperately need a QB, all passed on Jameis even at a ridiculous salary of 1 million. 31 coaching rooms and 31 GMs all came to the same conclusion about Jameis.

Now it looks like that number has grown to 32.

I still think Winston sees more snaps than Taysom tomorrow. I think Payton starting Taysom due to some contract agreement. If a few series, we don't move the ball, look for Winston to come in. It may even be QB by committee program until Brees returns.

Contact? Never heard of a contract that overrides Sean Payton's call. In any case, I see this as a Teddy situation. The call is made and they stick with the choice. Not sure how badly Taysom would have to play to get yanked. Pretty sure your view is based on what you want to happen not on what is likely to happen. A bit sad to hear you sound like you hope he tanks.

If Taysom Plays the majority of snaps will you finally admit you were wrong or will it be some other excuse?

" I think Payton starting Taysom due to some contract agreement." < --- that's priceless.

I'm not saying Taysom tanks. In fact, im hoping we can find our QB of the future when Brees hangs it up. With Winston, he is younger and has more longevity so of course I'm hoping to see him more than Taysom.

Taysom brings sparks in the Swiss army knife of our offensive production. Putting him at QB, we lose that versatility if he plays QB.

What I mean by contract, the reason he re-signed with us was because we would give him XX amount of snaps, etc. He wants to be a full time QB and unless we start him, I'm pretty sure he would demand a trade or release. I can think of several teams right now needing a full time QB.
