Sean maybe trolling everybody. He loves making people think one thing and then does the other?

So we won't really know until FA period and the draft ends, heck really we won't know till week 1 of the season how Taysom will be used.
I don't see Payton being the type to put a rookie on the field at the QB position, so even if we draft one, Hill would be #2 this year. I also think Payton has seen enough of Hill in practice that he believes he's the best option at #2, even if we were to bring in a vet, because he knows the offense and he's a playmaker. I think Payton is serious. That's not to say that things can't change somewhere down the line, but when Payton says something like this, he's usually serious.

Taysom was the 2nd best player on the field at the end of last season, and there wasn't a close 3rd...

Ya'll are trippin' if ya'll think that him being the #2 QB will diminish his other roles on offense... Trippin'!

We are in an.... "If he dies, he dies".... type of year.
That's what I'm trying to say! Taysom Hill will not sit on the bench, no matter what his title is! They will get a 3rd QB for that.

If I'm SP I worry about playing him on special teams. On one hand you have this incredible special teams player who has made some big time plays. But on the other hand the guy is a vital part of the offense. Do you risk him getting hurt trying to block a punt or do you say the reward is worth the risk?

Personally I hope they pick their spots with him on special teams. He's such a valuable weapon.

When you read articles surrounding Taysom Hill, it's like everyone(including hated rivals) are trying desperately to convince Saints fans and anyone that'll listen, Hill's not, nor ever will/can be a franchise QB..So Saints fans, stop dreaming, it can't be real..it must not be allowed to be real!

Nah, read this.


EDIT: For those that can't, Payton is basically saying Taysom will be the #2 QB but will also be the #1 in the Joker role doing his usual stuff. Because he could get a finger pointing sideways playing TE they will need a #3 QB active every game.
Basically the same as last season, but with Taysom being the next man up if Drew misses time.
Makes sense as we're not likely to have a back-up quarterback that gives us a better chance to win than Taysom this season.

Going to be a crazy year at the QB position. Is this the year TH has more snaps at QB than Drew? I am not a big fan of running TH in at QB on situational downs. It lets the defense sell out to focus on Hill.
Could be tough on defense though with Emmanuel Sanders lined up. Payton I'm sure will have a couple of plays designed.

Payton stated in the article that we will have a 3rd QB active because Hill may come to the sideline, his thumb is East and West, and can’t play QB. I’m not confident he will put a rookie in.

Sounds like our backups will be QB2a and QB2b. Very unique situation that I can’t wait to see how they fill the need. I lean towards vet. I should probably be checked/tested because I feel like Winston or Cam maybe options 🤒.

I believe Payton is being very 'tactical' in regards to Taysom Hill..He doesn't want the national media and over opinionated fans writing countless articles and blogs as to why he and Taysom are the most inept player/coach in the league before Taysom's game has fully developed..He learned this while having Brees develop with all the naysayers writing the narrative in stone on Brees, that he takes a back seat to much more inferior QBs throughout his illustrious career and as a result is arguably the most underrated sports figure of all time...JMO

That quote is for the nervous nancys that worry about Taysom being developed into a franchise QB IMO
