We can't always count on our QB to pull out the win. I like Hill but he's no Drew.

No. He's no Drew. Nobody is. But he and Drew have that "will to win" in common. I would love to see what Hill could do with the 1s for an extended time. It wouldn't be surgical, like Drew, but this guy will all but sell his soul for the "W".

Taysom will never be Drew, but he adds a completely new dimension to this offense which Drew never has.

Obviously Taysom doesnt have the accuracy of Brees, but Brees doesnt have the athleticism of Taysom. Hill likely escapes plays that Brees cannot, but also lacks Brees' ball placement.

Its swings and roundabouts, what Brees is weak at, Taysom excels and vice versa. Just have to take the good with the bad and hope that Taysom can develop as a pocket passer too.

I do have to say though, his accuracy looks better recently.

I can't speak for everyone else here but comparing what Drew does to ANY other QB not named Brady or Rodgers simply isn't fair to Teddy & Taysom.

We are talking about a future 1st ballot HOF QB here.

I just corrected it for you. Rodgers couldn't carry Brees jockstrap.

Agree completely. Like I've said before, Brees makes good receivers great and great receivers All Pros. The offense also plays with a faster tempo under Bress, keeping the D off balance. That said, not accounting for what D personnel the Chargers had on the field Sunday, Hill made Bridgewater look bad.
