Title: Taysom Hill starting over Jameis Winston
Post by: DavidLatham on November 20, 2020, 12:25:42 pm
Well, didn't see this coming. Let's see if Payton's love for Hill is justified. As a temporary Bucs fan, I personally love this decision

Yeah I'm stunned by this... Sean Payton knows more Football than I ever will but this seems perplexing to say the least

I don't think Taysom will be starting for long

I hope not! But it's also Sean Payton so who knows since he has a crazy infatuation with Hill.

I hope he plays well. I picked him up in Fantasy Football and have him as my tight end haha

Hahaha yeah any site that lets you have him at TE (ESPN) I would start him above any TE not named Kelce

He's also eligible at TE on FanDuel as well and I normally stick to DraftKings only but I have some money on FanDuel as well so I think I'm gonna fill out a double up lineup with Hill at TE to try to double my account.

If anyone plays in FleaFlicker he's WR eligible over there

Yeah that's also a lock button too.

Payton is an old school guy, he can't stand turnovers. He'd rather have Hill running and attacking with short passes than Jameis slinging it down the field.

Fascinating to watch tomorrow

Yeah for sure. It's definitely going to be interesting.

Working fine so far. Schedule isn't that scary either. A good time to see if this offense under Hill works full time.

Yeah he definitely looked and played much better than I thought he would.

It worked. I don't have the highest expectations for him moving forward, but New Orleans likely won't be losing games because of Taysom.

He looked better than I thought he would, but I'm still not sold on him as the long-term answer. That said, Sean Payton is a magician and Michael Thomas is finally healthy, so anything's possible

This is gonna feel like a hindsight is 20/20 kind of post but I was actually really excited to see Hill getting the chance to start. There has been a lot of talk about his contract and what happens next and he made a decent case for himself on Sunday. Now, that said, he had the benefit of it being his first start meaning there would have been very little tape on him. We'll see what happens next as far as how he plays without that benefit. But it looks like Payton made the right call. So far, so good.

I'm also skeptical long term as well but it worked for one game at least.

Hill also eased into the game.
Offense didn't quite click in the first half, but he was very efficient in the second half. (That fumble aside. He needs to get a handle on that, lost 3 or 4 this year as a runner)

There is a scenario where Hill improves with more time as starter next few weeks, like Bridgewater did last year.

Yeah the difference to me though is that Bridgewater is more of a prototypical QB and on top of it Hill is already like 30 I believe.

Teddy took a while to get going last year. He was really rusty his first two or three starts

Exactly. Bridgewater is a better passer and quarterback than Taysom.
