Overreaction: Taysom Hill is amazing
Because of the blowout, Taysom Hill got a lot more playing time than he usually gets. He had a game reminiscent of the Wild Card playoff game against the Minnesota Vikings which is the reason that he got the contract he did in the first place.
In that game, he threw one pass for 50 yards; he ran four times for 50 yards; and he caught two passes for 25 yards and a touchdown. Last week, he threw two passes for 48 yards; he ran seven times for 54 yards; and he caught one pass for 21 yards.
The games’ similarities are almost identical.
However, Hill is still not that good. This is the same person that fans were calling to be released or traded before the deadline. This is the same player who could be considered the most overpaid player in the NFL.
The reason the Saints are in the position that they are in with Taysom Hill is because of an overreaction to one outstanding game like this. We need, as fans, to remember the other 15-game duds that Hill produces the rest of the year.
