This was a really fun one to dive into. Be prepared, it's about 3,000 words and a lot of film clips, and even with all that it's still only going to add fuel to an ever raging fire. I compare things each does better than the other, and maybe, just maybe, give a peak inside the vision for both of these players moving forward. Are either the replacement and heir-apparent to Drew Brees? I still don't think anyone is going to be able to properly fill those shoes, but it's a lot of fun watching Teddy and Taysom work to earn the keys to the Saints offense.


Article teaser:

Now let’s look at his touchdown pass to Austin Carr in the second preseason game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Sadly, the NFL does not give us All-22 for preseason film so I’m going to have to guess on a few details here. Essentially, the Saints give Hill a levels passing concept.

Carr said it best Monday. This ball comes to him .1% of the time. The middle receiver here is running an out-and-up behind Grayson’s post route. This should be the last read as it takes the longest to develop and likely will be covered in either a zone or man coverage situation. However, a credit to Hill is that he recognized the blown coverage as soon as he started his progression. When Carr’s defender bailed and Grayson’s defender started following him up the post route, Hill knew he had an easy touchdown coming.

They both ready. One is improving and the other is a vet who just had a bad game.

Hmm, odd, thanks for the catch!
Great article Rev! You and Will Guillory are the main reasons that I subscribe. My wife just bought me a 3 year extension (she reads the Saints articles too, so maybe she had an ulterior motive :unsure: ). Keep up the good work! Informative and fun.
