Saints’ Twitter cancels versatile, fan-favorite quarterback Taysom Hill
Swiss Army knife Taysom Hill has not performed as he had in recent seasons and the New Orleans Saints fanbase are letting him know.
New Orleans Saints backup quarterback and Swiss Army knife Taysom Hill, had a rough night during Monday Night Football against the LA Chargers. Hill misses with a bad pass, had a terrible run, and fell down during a touchdown opportunity all in the first half.
Hill has also not been very productive during the other games of the season so far too. He hasn’t had many big plays that have helped the offense or special teams all year long, and many fans have noticed.
Hill was once thought to be the heir apprentice of Drew Brees after his final NFL season this year; however, the team signed former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston to compete for the true back up position.
With Hill not playing to his previous standards, Winston may be called upon by Saints fans rather than wanting to see a Taysom Hill sighting we used to get excited for.
A huge change in emotion from Saints fans that once adored him. Because of his recent efforts, Hill was blasted all night by Saints fans on Twitter.
Hill signed a two-year $21 million contract this offseason, and many thought he would be more involved because of it. Now, the Saints must figure how to be even more creative with the veteran quarterback from BYU.
Trending on Twitter is usually a very good or bad thing, but mostly bad for Taysom. Hopefully, Hill can work back into good graces with the fans in NOLA with some good plays in the future. His stat sheet is bare and lacking any touchdowns, blocks, or important stops.
The best way to get back in the fans’ good graces is to have a big moment, and it may come soon if Sean Payton has anything to do with it.
