Jason Smith: “This is what the Broncos needed to do. Sean Payton is one of the best offensive minds in the NFL, and every single QB he had in New Orleans: Drew Brees, Jameis Winston, Taysom Hill, Teddy Bridgewater was good and succeeded in his system. Teddy Bridgewater looked great under him; Jameis Winston reignited his career under him, Taysom Hill looked fantastic, and of course Drew Brees. So that’s what I’ll default to, and I think Russell Wilson, another dual threat QB, will succeed under him... I think you’ll see them back in the playoffs next year and they will win the AFC West.”
Jason Smith and Mike Harmon react to the Broncos trading for Sean Payton, with the intention of naming him the team’s next head coach. Jason believes this is the best move for Denver, and Payton will lead the team and Russell Wilson back to the playoffs next year.
