Hill, not Winston, to start for Saints

Hill, not Winston, to start for Saints”

But Hill, who has played throughout the season as a change-of-pace, option quarterback, and also has served in a utility role on special teams and as a tight end, is reportedly Payton's choice to take the first snaps against the Falcons.

"Both of these young guys have progressed and have advanced, understanding what we're doing, and there's a confidence level we have in both players", Payton said about the healthy QBs on his depth chart. "Obviously, Taysom and Jameis, two guys that have been productive in their system and some, in Jameis, in obviously the Tampa system that he came from. There's no doubt about that".

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton refused to even hint at a timeline for the recovery of starting quarterback and future Hall of Famer Drew Brees while speaking with reporters on Wednesday. Many assumed the Saints would do what they did in 2019 when Brees got hurt, when they turned to Teddy Bridgewater. He has thrown only 18 regular-season passes in his National Football League career, completing 10 for 205 yards with one interception.

Hill has 850 yards and 11 touchdowns from scrimmage since joining the Saints in 2017.

In the final season of a two-year, $30 million contract, Jacoby Brissett is the only backup quarterback who earns more than Hill.

Winston replaced Brees for the second half of the Saints' 27-13 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 10, completing six passes for 63 yards. He has one interception but has yet to throw for a touchdown. Regardless, starting Hill over Winston is certainly controversial, but if it works and the Saints win this weekend, then pundits like Smith will have a lot to answer for on Monday. "Blood is boiling, it's chippy at times, things like that". That's what you're going to get in this game. "I'm looking forward to playing in it".
