I agree.I doubt he struggled with the decision. It’s been said that Taysom took starter reps all week. It’s not like it was an even split and he announced a starter on Friday.
I'm sorry you dont know what I'm talking about, bc you are speaking on us tying etc. We are 7 to 7...and Brees may be out 5 games. I get Sean wants to see what he has going forward...just wish he wouldn't do that right now.They’re not dang near even with us when we have a 2-0 advantage on them head to head. We have over an 85% chance right now to win the South. It’s the perfect time to try anything he wants to honestly. But I do understand your point.
ESPN is trash and we all know it and have known it for several years.That article is a whole lot of nothing and there are no quotes in it to suggest any type of tensions or issues in the lockeroom because of this decision. Pretty aggressive click-bait by Schefter.
They also spend the entire article saying "sources" told them this is Drew's last year. That is a guess. It's probably true, but it's a guess.
Oh no, I completely understand, comprehend, and know what you’re talking about. It’s why I responded with factual information helping your misconception of the standings. All goodI'm sorry you dont know what I'm talking about, bc you are speaking on us tying etc. We are 7 to 7...and Brees may be out 5 games.

This is just too close for that...
Actually, no misconceptions...you took liberties to focus on the "Tie" aspect when...we drop 2, it's done. All good.Oh no, I completely understand, comprehend, and know what you’re talking about. It’s why I responded with factual information helping your misconception of the standings. All good
I saw that same Rich Eisen interview with Aikman. So Sean is holding true to his word... its just that some players AND staff don't agree with the move. I don't think Payton can "lose the locker room" if Taysom tanks today but there's gonna be some side-eyes at Sean if this doesn't work.Troy Aikman said Payton told him some time ago that if Drew went down in a game, Jameis would be his replacement b/c he is a better fit for the kind of game plan the offense runs with Drew, but that Taysom would start if they had a full week to create the kind of game plan that will work for Taysom, so I doubt Payton struggled with this decision. Now, if there is actually internal team dissension about the decision, that would be a real problem, but it would be hard to imagine players being against a QB who plays with the grit and enthusiasm Taysom always brings to the field and who has been on the team now for almost three years, as opposed to less than one for Jameis. Sure, if it doesn't work out and Payton keeps forcing Taysom into the lineup, then it would be a problem, but I have a feeling it's going to work.
