Those are good numbers, so why on earth is Saints coach Sean Payton stoking the fire by going along with this crap?
Asked the question if Hill could be a full-time QB in the NFL, Payton responded:
Absolutely. Absolutely. Sooner than later. He’s gonna be a starting quarterback in our league.
Just not with the Saints, though, right? Come on.
Teddy Bridgewater must be shaking his head in disbelief
As he approaches free agency, Teddy Bridgewater must be wondering what the hell is going on. Once Drew Brees dropped out of the Saints lineup last year due to injury
, Teddy stepped up. Big time.
Bridgewater threw for 1, yards, nine touchdowns, and two interceptions with five straight victories. He earned a 67. 9 percent completion rate in just nine games last year.
That, ladies and gentlemen, is a quarterback.
Taysom Hill, at years old, has career pass attempts and zero touchdowns. And despite Sean Payton seeming to big him up to anyone who’ll listen, he wasn’t chosen to throw the ball when Brees went down injured.
I don’t care what Hill may say, that isn’t the mark of a “franchise quarterback.”
If Hill decides to move on to fulfill his dream, where could he end up?
Almost as insane as Hill referring to himself as a franchise quarterback is that he’s threatening to leave for opportunities elsewhere at the worst possible time:
I want to play quarterback in this league, and if New Orleans don ‘ t view me that way, well, then I have to leave. That’s really where we’re at.
You’re picking a hell of a year to chase that dream, Taysom! Have you been living under a rock? Take a look at the potential free agency market this off-season! Do you think you’re going to be able to compete with those quarterbacks and capture yourself a QB1 position in the NFL?
A Taysom Hill grounded in reality is an asset in this league
