If you had zero expectations for Taysom Hill, then he would not be the loser of this game because he wouldn’t have done anything unexpected. If you had expectations for Hill and his season, then he was the loser of this contest.
In the offseason, the Saints put a first-round tender on Hill. After no one was willing to give that up to sign him, the Saints had to give him $4.5 million (a little high but acceptable). Then they went and signed him to a $20 million extension.
If you are making $4.8 million per year (which is top ten on the entire Saints roster), you need to do better than the showing Hill gave today. He finished with zero passes, three rushes for six yards, and one reception for eight yards.
Oh, and he had a fumble.
For that, Hill is our loser of Week 4.
The Saints did not demolish the Lions. In fact, for a bounce-back game, it was pretty concerning. I would go as far as to say the Saints still need to bounce back from this, even though it was a win. They will get the 1-3 Chargers in Week 5.
