Taysom will have first crack at the backup job, but with Sanders signing, to fully maximize this high power offense it will require Hill getting in the field frequently, and if he is on the field frequently we will need a solid backup quarterback.

While Jameis Winston isn’t a top shelf qb, he can certainly slide into the Teddy Bridgewater spot, bringing experience and untapped potential. With him sitting behind Brees, and having Pete and Sean in his ear (rather than whoever he had in TB), he could take his game to another level. Throw in the fact that he will be coming from a division rival, it would be the complete divisional coup de grâce.

I wouldn't want to bring him in as our starter (not that it would happen, just a general thought) but if he came cheap enough, ie less than what we paid Teddy, than I could see some potential to it. Guy has all the talent in the world, just lacking between the ears. There's a chance that watching Drew and working with Sean, he could limit those mistakes.

A Taysom/Winston QB battle will be very interesting during camp. Two talented but inconsistent player with similar skill sets should push someone into being a solid player.
Not even remotely similar players. One is a player who showed for about five years that he's an inaccurate passer who can't progress through his reads - who is more of a running threat than a passing threat, but not an actual QB.

The other is Jameis Winston.

I love Taysom, and was one of (if not the first) guy to pull for us to sign him if GB should cut him, but Winston is on a whole different level from Taysom. Taysom is a great football player, but Winston is a good quarterback.
True, but if you help the other team more than your own it kinda neutralizes your potential as a QB.

I’m not judging Winston that much. He played really well when his team wasn’t trailing by double digits. I feel the majority of his mistakes came from him trying to play hero ball. This happens to people that are highly competitive. He tried to make plays that weren’t there because he didn’t want to lose. He’s definitely not a bad QB.

Shirley you're not serious???

He has all the athletic ability of an elite player.............................he also has the mental capacity of a door knob!!
Sadly with the invention of smart locks he is no longer intellectually on par with even those.

To the OP, I'd throw up. Rinse my mouth out then throw up again. I haven't been eating any W's lately, but I would probably throw up some W's on my way to uncontrollable dry heaving

If it's a cheap, back up type deal I wouldn't care... someone has to be the 3rd QB.

I just don't personally see it.. decision making is one of the traits Payton values the most in a QB and I'm not so sure he's going to want to coach up that project.
This. He just doesn't learn. Throwing interceptions since 2015, Pass

I think Darren Sharper fulfilled our quota of sex offenders. No need to have any more for the rest of our franchise's history.
I wonder if @SonOfNOLA's facepalm on this post was because he's cool with Darren Sharper being a serial rapist or if he's offended for someone remiding y'all that Jameis might've violated a woman that was very likely much smaller than him in a confined space with no one around for her to call out to for help.

Edit: I misunderstood @SonOfNOLA's use of the facepalm reaction as him taking issue with my criticism of Sharper and Winston as opposed to him being equally disgusted at their actions as well.

Or seeing a reminder of how much Sharper is a po**** rapist. I mean you could’ve just asked why I facepalmed straight up, instead of attaching me to your rapeapologist assumptions.

Honestly, I'd follow Sean Payton into battle blindly and support him. After all these years, I believe in our leader and staff, as they continue to withstand the test of time.

Oh, my bad. I honestly thought you were implying disgust at me calling both of them pieces of trash.

Tough question. The turnovers would have to be corrected. Mixed feelings on him as a potential leader. At the moment, he doesn't seem to have that leadership "it" factor. But, he tries to take on the roll. He matures more each year and he's always been a good passer.

Bottom line, I'd probably rather pass on him with the existing makeup of the team with Drew and Taysom. And not knowing how well he'd accept a backup role for a year or two. And the price tag may be too high.
