If you are a BYU fan, or even a New Orleans Saints fan, then you may be wondering who Adam Schein is. Schein is the host of “Schein on Sports” part of the Mad Dog Sports Sirius XM radio lineup. As well as the host of “Time to Schein” on the CBS Sports Network.
Schein said last week that he doesn’t understand the obsession the Saints have with Taysom Hill. “I don’t want to see New Orleans mess around with Taysom Hill.” Schein said, just before his interview with Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis.
Schein went on to say that he thinks the Saints will be a playoff team if they are led by Jameis Winston. “Do not sleep on the New Orleans Saints,” Schein said “I think going to Jameis Winston is a major upgrade from the 2020 version of Drew Brees.”
During the interview with Mad Dog Sports, Loomis defended Hill after being asked what his ultimate upside is: “We are high on Taysom…He’s a tremendous athlete, with a tremendous arm, speed and strength.”
“He’s going to be in a competition with Taysom…it’s going to be interested to see how that shakes out.” #Saints GM Mickey Loomis tells @AdamSchein what the team expects from Jameis Winston this upcoming season.

Interestingly enough, Schein later undermined his own argument when he gave his thoughts on Giants Quarterback Daniel Jones. Schein said, “Daniel Jones consistently throws to the wrong team, so I can’t take the Giants seriously.”
Over the span of two seasons with the Giants, Daniel Jones has thrown 22 career interceptions. The last time Winston started a full season at quarterback, in 2019 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he threw 30 interceptions in one season.
In April of 2020, SportsCasting.com reported that before joining the Saints as a free agent for the 2020 season, Winston had completed more passes to Saints players than Saints backup QB Taysom Hill. Winston had thrown 10 interceptions against the Saints in his career with Tampa Bay while Hill had only completed 7 passes to his teammates.
Jameis Winston has completed 10 career passes to Saints players.
Taysom Hill has completed 7.

Hill also brings a valuable aspect to the Saints offense that was highlighted in his 3-1 record as a starter last season when he took over for the injured Drew Brees, the ability to extend plays and move the sticks with his feet. A trait that more and more NFL teams are looking for in a quarterback. Whether Hill is QB1 or even if he stays in a “Swiss army knife” type of a role, he will continue to be an asset for Head Coach Sean Payton.
