First of all, relax before you roll your eyes.

When New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton told CBS’ broadcasting team last week that Taysom Hill “may be the next Steve Young,” he wasn’t saying his versatile third-string quarterback/running back/tight end/receiver/special-teams ace will become a Hall of Famer.

But it was telling, nonetheless, that Payton has that kind of faith in Hill’s potential future as an actual starting NFL quarterback -- maybe even as the heir to Drew Brees' throne in New Orleans one day.



And Payton didn’t back down from his comparison between the two former BYU stars when asked about it on Monday.

“Well, if you look back at Steve's career, and people don’t remember his time before he came into the NFL, you had a very athletic player that I think advanced when he got to San Francisco. And he always had great ability with his legs,” Payton said of Young, who became the 49ers’ starter shortly before his 30th birthday after stops in the USFL and with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

“So you're trying to create visions for players -- no different than how you would evaluate [fellow Saints backup QB Teddy Bridgewater], what he can be. And I think that that’s the business we’re in. … that was something that as you began to watch [Hill’s] skill set, you’re just trying to think of players that were similar at an early stage in their career.”

He's the best QB for fantasy if the goal was to score the least amount of points. He would be the #1 pick. No other playing QB could touch him.

I loved Steve Young's comment. He said "I'll own that comparison 100%". And something to the effect of when I grow up I want to be just like Taysom Hill.
