Mike Westhoff: Taysom Hill “throws better” than Lamar Jackson
Posted by NBCsports on February 11, 2020, 11:28 AM EST NBCsports
quote:

Taysom Hill has become a stellar special-teams player with plenty of promise at quarterback. Mike Westhoff, who served as special-teams coordinator with the Saints in 2017 and 2018, praised Hill’s skills in an early-January interview with Zach Gelb of CBS Sports Radio.

quote:

“Take a look at Baltimore,” Westhoff said when discussing Hill’s skill set. “It’s the same kind of guy. Taysom Hill does those same kind of things. I think he throws better.”

quote:

NFL special-teams coach from 1986 through 2018, isn’t saying Lamar Jackson doesn’t throw well; Jackson was the unanimous MVP for a reason. Westhoff is simply saying that he personally believes Hill, whom Westhoff observed for two years in practice, throws better. Which is a very boldly statement but, given Westhoff’s time with the Saints, hardly uninformed, at least as it relates to Westhoff’s knowledge of Hill.

quote:

Westhoff also predicted that, in time, Hill will become the starter with the Saints.

quote:

“I think you’ll see an offense that’s similar to Baltimore, that can do a lot of different things,” Westhoff said of a potential Taysom Hill-based attack in New Orleans. “And Sean Payton is an extremely qualified coach, and he’s very, very creative.”

quote:

Indeed, it’s far more likely that Hill will become a star player if he sticks with Payton, a master at designing plays that create mismatches between his players and opposing defenses. Payton constantly looks for new ideas, and he knows how to filter the ones that will work with his personnel.

quote:

Put simply, Payton does things that his players do well, and Payton avoids things that his players don’t do well, while constantly exploiting the weaknesses in the defense his team is facing in any given week. That approach has helped make Drew Brees one of the best quarterbacks ever — and it could help make Hill one of the best quarterbacks currently in the league.

He does. Like I said prior, look at his preseason games. He made all the throws.

I’m not really sure what that’s saying considering that Jackson is a horrendous passer. I like hill and i don’t think he’s a franchise qb but saying he throws better than Lamar isn’t saying much.

That seems a bit closed minded and out of date for a comment by this analyst who does not know anything about social justice or growing trends.

I would rather Teddy but don't want to pay 25 million a year for a QB that hasn't proven he can carry a whole season.

that includes Taysom.

So it boils down do if i can have a prove it year from Taysom at 10-15 mil

as opposed to dropping 20-25 on Teddy for 3-4 years I'm going with the value with the intention of going after a QB in the 2021 draft if it doesn't work.

Lamar Jackson threw for 36 TDs and 66.1% completion in his second season.

It took Peyton Manning 7 season to pass for over 36 TDs and 5 seasons to complete at least 66% of his passes.

It took Tom Brady 8 season to pass for over 36 TDs and 8 seasons to complete at least 66%

SP been using the best QB in the league as a core special teamer apparently

No he doesnt. Saints talk said he’s not accurate, can’t lead the black and gold, he’s too old.

Who is Sean Payton paying to give these bull shite analysis of Taysom Hill?....

Why would you have a guy with that much skillset running special teams?
