He always had great ability with his legs, so youre trying to create visions for players.Before coming to the NFL, Young played in the USFL and became the first professional quarterback to throw for 300 yards and run for 100 yards in a game. Hill has shown similar athleticism with his feet, but still has a lot to prove with his arm.Hes got a job in the NFL that he can do for a little while. Its like a 7 handed knife, but I dont know if thats the job he wants to do for 15 years. And, so thats the real challenge, Young said on Sports Talk with Bobby Hebert & Kristian Garic. How does he gets the reps to actually develop into an NFL QB Thats what Sean is really saying. Early on, I didnt know what I was doing, but I learned how to do it. Thats what you have to figure how to get the reps and take advantage of it and become an expert.Young added, I know that Taysom is doing that. Hes spending the time, but is he going to get the opportunity And, then when he does it, can he develop into a frontline quarterback Thats the real question.Last season with the Saints, Hill saw very limited action actually playing quarterback in the regular season. He completed 3 of 7 passes for 64 yards, with no touchdowns and one interception. Young was able to replace a legend in Joe Montana will Hill be able to do the same with Drew BreesLISTEN TO THE ENTIRE STEVE YOUNG INTERVIEW ABOVE Categories: Sports NFL Local News Saints Tags: New Orleans Saints taysom hill Sean Payton Steve Young NFL Comments

You can also have a visual field deficit is what we call it, which is having a dark spot in the periphery of your vision.The cancer arises in pigmented cells in the uvea and forms a pigmented mass in the layer of the eye just behind the retina.Whats important in determining the prognosis is catching it early.The longer the tumor is in the eye the more it is going to grow, and the prognosis is going to be worse, Reinoso said. Prognosis also varies depending on the location of the tumor.Reinoso says important to stay ahead of any potential eye diseases with yearly dilated eye exams.
