NFLís next big trend? It might be the two-QB formation

How Taysom Hill might have changed the model

Credit should go to the New Orleans Saints, who now have successfully implemented a two-QB package with Drew Brees and Taysom Hill, as key envelope pushers. Other teams have tinkered with trick-play packages and multiple QBs on the field together. Look no further than the semi-awkward usage of Jackson by the Ravens before he unseated Joe Flacco as the starting QB.

But the Saints took this idea to a new level last season. That Brees is a first-ballot Hall of Famer to-be is not insignificant; the Saints were willing at times to take the ball out of his hands and put them into those of a second-year, undrafted quarterback in Hill who entered last season with zero NFL yards from scrimmage. Thatís commitment to a cause.

Hill wears No. 7. Heís listed on the Saintsí roster as a QB. But heís become so much more than that.

Starting in Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons, Saints head coach Sean Payton enhanced his reputation as a mad offensive scientist willing to try just about anything at any time when he unleashed his ďTaysom Hill package,Ē with Hill running the ball three times for 39 yards. Hill would go on to play a total of 182 offensive snaps in the regular season. Paytonís five-snap experiment worked so well in that Week 3 game that he found as many ways to get Hill involved as possible.

Dreew has already caught his own pass. That isn't good enough?
