Taysom Hill, after having a first-round tender slapped on his restricted free agent tag, was supposed to be a much more involved piece than he has been. In a Week 3 matchup with the Packers, it felt like he wasn’t even present.
He played in 21% of the team’s offensive snaps and had a game-changing fumble as well. He had just one reception for one yard and two rushes for six yards.
Hill has been a major factor as the team’s Swiss Army knife, being able to run, pass, receive, and block. A multi-faceted player like that has value and Hill should bounce back, but it needs to be immediately.
This team may believe he’s the future of the franchise’s quarterback position. They need to play him like it, and he needs to play like it. There should be no more games where he can’t get more than ten all-purpose yards.
Hill must be better moving forward.
