Ability / Talent

When it comes to who will be the starting quarterback, behind leadership, talent is the biggest factor. Which has the most potential getting the ball down the field, utilizing the team, and ultimately in the endzone for scores more often?

Now, we all know that Jameis Winston is a former NFL passing leader in 2019 when he threw for over 5,100 yards and 30 touchdowns with the Buccaneers. Most people like to point out his ball security issues and his 30 interceptions more.

Taysom Hill gave us our first insight into his ability as a starting quarterback this year when he took over for Drew Brees. Hill might have gone 4-1 as a starter, but he did not show passing ability as we have seen from Winston.

Alvin Kamara also averaged worse games when Hill was in the position because of the loss of check-downs. Hill also had ball security issues of his own with 10 fumbles in the year. Hill’s yards per attempt last season was 7.7. In 2019, Winston’s was 8.2 yards per attempt.
