Red meat for the Taysom isn't a QB contingent (aka Teddy is a QB contingent)

"You typically need more than a handful plays to form an opinion on a quarterback, but I don’t know if that’s even true for Hill. He just doesn’t look like an NFL-caliber passer. He plays with no sense of timing or rhythm. "


The author is an ardent Teddy booster so you may want to shake a little salt of this .

That severely underthrown ball to Harris in the playoff game should prove that Hill is not an adequate passer

That and he holds the ball way too long
So one pass = not adequate? I guess all Qb's are inadequate then. We've seen Taysom throw a beautfiul deep ball. This is a guy who is blocking, running routes, taking on multiple defenders, then asked to throw a bomb after not throwing any passes all game, and you want to judge him off one pass?

I don't blame Taysom for having confidence in his abilities to play QB in the NFL. I also don't blame critics for being a bit hesitant to believe in Taysom as a full-time NFL QB because he doesn't a large enough sample size.

These coming weeks will be interesting to watch.

Personally I view a Taysom led offense as a run based offense that uses a strong run game to open up the passing game. Ideally we would have a legit deep threat to throw bombs to.

It is obvious to me that both Steven Ruiz and Brian Giuffra are trying to make a name for themselves. I think Taysom Hill would be a top 5 QB in this league if given a chance. I know preseason is not anything compared to the regular season, but Taysom Hill progressed each week 3 fold per week. If given the same opportunity in the regular season, then I think he would show the same progression. No one said he is a Lamar Jackson (like Steven Ruiz mentioned), but then Lamar Jackson is no Taysom Hill.

The other thing I keep hearing about is his durability and staying healthy. They keep referencing his college days. If anyone has seen this guy play, they would know his toughness can not be questioned. Anyone on any given day can get hurt....Drew Brees, Tom Brady, etc. etc...…...but using that as an excuse not to give this guy a chance at QB is absolutely stupid.

Taysom Hill is and can be a starting QB in the NFL. His age is his only question mark. But if you can get 5-8 years of stellar play from this guy, why wouldn't you want him as your starting QB.

That sounds like a very limited offense.

A Teddy Bridgewater offense will be lead the same way a Drew Brees offense was lead and that's with a WC basked attack with timing and accuracy taking strategic shots down field and with players that can attack the seams of a defense with skill players with size and speed to rise over the defense at snag back shoulder throws and seam routes.

We haven't seen enough. We just don't know but I trust Sean Payton. Whoever he rolls with I'm good with it.
Beat me to it.

Either Payton is truly about to construct an entirely new offense around Taysom, or he’s setting up an elaborate smokescreen to make someone pay up, potentially setting up another move.

Whatever it is, I’m here for it.

if anything the saints are trying to gain another first round pick to move up to get a qb, whether it burrow, tua, or someone...

My cousin brought that up also (not jokingly like you did). He didn't see the guard/center getting bullrushed straight to Taysom. Dude had to avoid that to throw it. If that person held his ground, that would've been 6 points on the board.
