Speaking on the “It Needed To Be Said” podcast, Hill had a lot of things to say about his current and former quarterbacks.
“I’ve had a chance to see Tua [Tagovailoa] throw the ball, to myself, but. . . . he’s that dude, bro,” Hill said. “Like, what a lot of people don’t know, like, I’m not just sitting just saying this because he’s my quarterback now. . . . like, I’m not trying to get more targets right now, but what I’m trying to say is Tua is that deal, bro. . . . Bro, he has a heck of an arm, bro.
“He’s accurate. He can throw the deep ball, and he actually goes through his reads,” Hill said. “Where people are like on Twitter like saying, ‘Oh, he doesn’t go through his reads.’ Man, this dude is that dude.”
Hill’s co-host, Julius Collins, then asked the dynamic wideout whether Tua or Mahomes had the stronger arm.
“Obviously, like I’m gonna go with 15 as the strongest arm but as far as accuracy-wise, I’m going with Tua all day,” Hill said.
“So which one would you rather have, the deep ball where you gotta scramble around the field to try to go find it, or do you want that accuracy to hit you breadbasket on the run?” Collins asked Hill.
“I want it to hit me right in the breadbasket, just like I did in the Buffalo Bills game, and take it 70,” Hill said. “And the rest is history.”
“I love the deep ball, but guess what though? I done expanded my game,” Hill said. “So now I’m doing a lot more than just the deep ball now. I’m doing intermediate routes. I’m doing short routes. So now I actually need a guy who can just get me the ball now, on a dagger route, on a corner route, on a shallow cross route. You know, right now, right in my chest. So I can do the rest. I make you look good now.”
Hill then threw a shot at Matt Moore when he said he made him look really good during a 2019 contest when Mahomes was out with an injury.
“I just want people to understand I went for 150 with Matt Moore as my quarterback,” Hill said. “I love you, Matt Moore. Versus the Minnesota Vikings. If you don’t remember that game, 150 and one touchdown with Matt Moore as my quarterback. And Tua T. is 10-10 Matt Moores. I love Matt Moore, but Tua T. is 10 Matt Moores.”
In 2021, Hill led the Chiefs in targets (159), receptions (111), receiving yards (1,239) and tied for the team lead in receiving touchdowns (9).
