Jameis Winston is getting some preseason action today, and the guy is looking absolutely phenomenal. With Drew Brees retiring last season, his successor is pretty up in the air, and it’s coming down to a competition between Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill. Personally, I’m a Jameis guy through and through, so I’m glad to see him thriving. Take a look.
Honestly, I really don’t know how it’s even considered to be a competition between Jameis and Taysom Hill. Taysom’s not even a quarterback! If the Saints wanna run 45 read options a game, be my guest, but if they want any form of a passing game, they’ve gotta go with Jameis. And by the way, Taysom Hill’s running ability is wildly overrated. I’ve heard announcers praise his “downhill running” more times than I can count, and I just don’t think it’s that special. Sure he’s a powerful runner… for a quarterback, but ask any DB if they’d rather have to tackle an actual running back or Taysom Hill and I think the answer would be pretty unanimous.
Also, football’s just so much more fun when Jameis is out there. Are you telling me you’d be shocked if he had a game with 500 yards passing, 5 touchdowns, and 5 INT’s? It’s so possible! Plus, the guy got Lasik eye surgery since the last time he started, so who’s to say he wasn’t blind the whole time? All I know is I’m throwing down a fat Jameis MVP future, and I’m rioting if Taysom starts I’m rioting.
