We recorded this podcast on Wednesday, but the title segment (9min mark) was rendered somewhat moot this morning when Schefter reported that Taysom Hill is starting over Jameis. I still stand by everything I said and will patiently await the Second Coming of Famous Jameis.
Albert Breer reported this week that Taysom was always the #2 ahead of Jameis, but that Jameis would fill in for mid-game injuries because Taysom spent most of his weeks practicing other positions. He got a first round tender and a fairly fat contract this year so the Saints think highly of him, and the Saints are usually smart.
Also relevant is the fact that Winston is on a one year, $1M deal and New Orleans starts next season $94M over the cap. They’re invested in Taysom and they need to give their investments a chance to work out.
He’ll probably turn out a better version of Lamar Jackson. If not, then Jameis comes in and the Saints win the Super Bowl anyway.
So Who Dat. Geaux Saints. Fuck the Falcons.
We have a lot of other sick sports chatter on this show, so give it a shot! Still a work in progress, so we’re open to feedback etc
