Some Of The Saints' Not-So-Secret Weapons Spent Monday Fawning Over Each Other's Superhuman Abilities On Twitter
Leave it to one of their beloved former teammates to put it the most accurate way possible...
The truth is, if you asked me to choose between the three players mentioned above in deciding which one is truly too good to have not had their skill set carefully crafted by a kid who was tired of getting his ass kicked by the computer in the latest 'Madden' release, I wouldn't have a good answer for you.
The versatility of Taysom Hill, who - as a "backup QB" - has put the special in special teams, as well as received rave reviews for his playmaking prowess as a runner, blocker, and tackler, is unlike anything ever seen on a non-pixelated football field. There's simply no denying how unprecedented he is as a skillful Swiss Army Knife and the exclamation to the NFL equivalent of the 'ATH' designation...
On the other hand, the quantity of Michael Thomas' target share returning the unmatched quality of a 95% catch rate is simply unheard of. The record setting amount of completions he's hauled in while setting a historically unsustainable pace throughout the first three weeks of the season is somehow only as impressive as the efficiency with which he's done so. The only reason to believe his abilities haven't gotten a virtual bump from a boy who is a bad loser is that artificial intelligence couldn't possibly comprehend a wide receiver whose dependability in getting open and closing the deal is nearly as certain as death and taxes.
Then, of course, there's the 37 year old who has worked himself into such ludicrous shape that he's able to still make plays from a position that's became more and more reliant on athleticism with each of the passing fourteen seasons he's played it professionally. Age considered, working the middle of the field at a high enough level to start under a coach that loves himself some talented tight ends makes Ben Watson as much of a unicorn as anyone else on the roster.
So, in closing, I've determined that a conversation about freakishly gifted athletes that doesn't include Alvin Kamara isn't one worth having. The fun the Saints are having with each other after a huge divisional victory, however, definitely is worth having, so hopefully they keep winning in ways that allow them to do so.
