Sean Payton: Taysom Hill's ability as a runner adds extra dimension to short-yardage package

By design, somebody other than Drew Brees took the snap for the Saints' first touchdown of the 2018 season.

With the Saints facing a 3rd-and-2 in the red zone, Brees headed out wide and lined up wide at receiver, making room for Taysom Hill to enter the game at quarterback.

Hill's presence made the ensuing read-option much more effective.

"It was part of a short-yardage or red-zone package, and if the guy catching the snap is a runner, potentially, you get a number back when you look at how you're going to block things," Payton said.

I love how at the end he announces to the world that he is definitely not to ever throw the ball to Drew, watch him throw it to Drew for his first receiving TD the next time they are in this formation.
