Why Jameis Winston should start for Saints – Hill’s one of the best weapons

Hill starting at quarterback means that he’s no longer able to be utilized as an offensive weapon and the Saints have thrived when they’re able to plug and play Hill throughout their offense. This doesn’t seem fair to use as an argument against Hill but with how good he is in this role, it does make a huge difference when he’s taken out of that job and asked to only be the quarterback.

Winston under center means that the Saints can still have Hill come in to run the ball, catch the ball, and yes, occasionally throw the ball too. It makes their offense harder to predict and whenever defenses see Hill come in and line up, they immediately aren’t sure of what to do because of his versatility.

When the Saints lost to the Vikings in the Wild Card round in the 2019 season, Hill was the only positive takeaway from that loss. Without him, New Orleans probably gets blown out, and that’s a prime example of why Hill is so valuable to not just the offense, but to the entire team.

Taysom Hill is at his best when the Saints can use him in a variety of different ways. As a result, this is another argument for why Winston should be the starting quarterback, as unfair as that may be for Hill.
