SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Social media exploded with both positive and negative takes after multiple reports surfaced that the New Orleans Saints would start former BYU star Taysom Hill at quarterback against the Atlanta Falcons.

On Friday, November 20, news began to surface that Hill would start over former NFL starting quarterback Jameis Winston as Drew Brees will miss the Saints (7-2) vs. Falcons (3-6) game due to injury.

Hill will reportedly get the first starting nod of his NFL career against the Falcons on Sunday, November 22.

After the reports came out, social media erupted with reactions to the Saints’ plans for the former BYU quarterback.
