Wilcotts: Taylor lulls opponents to sleep

Posted by Chris Brown on December 12, 2015 – 2:17 pm

CBS NFL analyst Solomon Wilcotts has done a handful of Bills games this season and he’ll be doing another with Spero Dedes on Sunday in Philadelphia. What has been most impressive about Tyrod Taylor’s first year as a starter for Wilcotts is the way he has been able to avoid turnovers. But there’s another part of Taylor’s game that Wilcotts loves.

“Tyrod Taylor protects the football as well as any quarterback in the league right now, save Alex Smith. He knows when to make a play,” Wilcotts said. “Like a good boxer, he is not going to come out swinging for the knockout.  He is just going to nickel and dime you. He is going to wear you down, set you up and rope-a-dope you. Next thing you know, he has put you to sleep. That is how good he is. He can throw the deep ball. He can throw from the pocket. But, he also has the legs and athleticism when the critical moments happen to tuck in the ball and run.  He has some magic in him to make it happen.”

Counting Taylor’s three rushing touchdowns, the Bills QB has a 5:1 touchdown to interception ratio with 20 total touchdowns and four interceptions.
