'I've always believed in myself'

John DeShazier | Senior Writer -

Absolutely, Taysom Hill envisioned success for his first NFL start at quarterback because, well, why wouldn't he?

Since the New Orleans Saints claimed him off waivers in 2017, Hill has been effective in every role played for the Saints. None of them had been as an all-game quarterback, but that's the position that New Orleans envisioned for Hill, Coach Sean Payton has said.

So Hill simply went about the business of doing what he expected against Atlanta, and completed 18 of 23 passes for 233 yards, and ran 10 times for 51 yards and two touchdowns, in a 24-9 victory that gave the Saints (8-2) their seventh consecutive win.

"I wouldn't say that I was able to do something that I didn't know I was capable of," said Hill, who made his first start in place of the injured Drew Brees, and will make his second start Sunday when the Saints play the Broncos (4-6) at Empower Field at Mile High in Denver.

"I've always felt like I was capable of being a starter in this league and really, it just came down to having the opportunity," he said. "So I wasn't surprised from that standpoint. I've always believed in myself." ...

Overreactions from Saints win over Falcons: Taysom Hill edition

The New Orleans Saints hosted the Atlanta Falcons last Sunday afternoon in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. While the 24-9 victory was impressive, as was the Saints defense, the real talk of the town was Taysom Hill’s performance.

The week leading up to the game saw uncertainty as to which quarterback between Jameis Winston and Hill would end up getting the start. I, for one, firmly believed it would it HAD to be Winston. Instead, head coach Sean Payton named Hill the starter, and the BYU product did not disappoint.

Thanks to a phenomenal starting debut, the overreactions regarding Hill have...

The New Orleans Saints are celebrating their seventh straight win after improving to 8-2. Now adding a 24-9 victory against the rival Atlanta Falcons.

This was no routine Falcons game, either. New Orleans pulled off this big win with Taysom Hill getting the start at quarterback in place of the injured Drew Brees and without top cornerback Marshon Lattimore who missed the game with an abdomen injury.

In our newest YouTube video, Ross Jackson breaks down how they pulled it off, whether or not Taysom and the offense can do it again, how far the defense has come, top performers, and more...

Barnwell: 15 NFL free agents who could gain or lose (a lot) in the next six weeks

The 2020 NFL season has arguably been the weirdest in league history. Next year will hopefully be something closer to normal, but the league's pending free agents will be in a bind with the salary cap projected to fall to $175 million. Teams that have relied on steady cap increases will be forced to cut veterans to create space, resulting in a flooded market. The significant cap increases that will come after the league signs its new television deals are still two or three years away.

This is a terrible time to become a free agent, which is why it's even more important to impress the...

It doesn’t seem that long ago.

With a 4-year-old daughter, a 1-year-old son and their mother waiting patiently for dad/husband to return home to spend Christmas together, we were all hoping for a rather quick game and safe, on-time charter flight back to Kenner.

On Dec. 24, 1994, the New Orleans Saints went to Mile High Stadium and downed the Broncos 30-28.

That was the last victory for the Saints at Denver.

Of course, the two teams seldom play each other, having met just 11 times over the course of the previous 53 years of New Orleans Saints football. Denver has dominated, winning...

Rankins has 11 tackles, seven quarterback hits and 1.5 sacks in seven games this season.

Taysom Hill knew his cellphone was likely buzzing non-stop from text messages, social media notifications and phone calls after his first NFL start at quarterback on Sunday night for the New Orleans Saints.

But instead of responding to everyone that evening, he left his phone alone to be present with his wife, Emily, their infant son, Beau, and his parents who came in for the weekend.

"We just enjoyed the time," Hill said Wednesday, noting that he didn't have much time with his family all week due to game preparations.

It had been a long time coming, and Hill didn't shy away from how...

Cornerback Marshon Lattimore was a full participant, which is the good news, as was tight end Josh Hill. Unfortunately, Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara were both limited.

The New Orleans Saints designated defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins for return from the injured reserve on Wednesday, according to the league's transactions report.

Rankins went on the injured reserve on Nov. 6 due to a knee injury he sustained against the Chicago Bears. Rankins' knee injury was an MCL sprain, and was less serious than originally feared, considering the TV broadcast refused to show replay of Rankins' injury.

The Saints have 21 days to decide whether to place him back on the active roster or have him out for the rest of the season.
