Or upset?

You would think that the Saints starting qb doing well would be a great thing, but this is 2020, and people like to be proven right, so I imagine people will be upset if he doesn’t fail.

Think me odd (and who doesn’t) with this topic, but looking through Twitter it seems like people are going to tune in Sunday at noon in hopes that he fails (and by extension the Saints), where I am not sure how they will react if he comes out and puts up a great game.

I’ll be thrilled. I don’t believe in him being the heir apparent, but I’d love to be wrong.
I am with you. Truly hoping he emerges as a Drew replacement and quality starting QB, but I just don't see it at this point due to the lack of exposure he has had and the questions whether he can smoothly go thru progressions and not take off running immediately! I do however trust Coach Payton who sees these guys every day.

Saints fans will be happy. Analysts will be upset and surprised. But some are going to come out with fake I told you so’s and expert analysis of what to expect in the future. Trying to be the first premier source on Taysom Hill.

All I know is that I’m more excited and relieved than the beginning of the week. Let’s goooo!!!!’ ⚜🤟🏾💯
Those analysts takes are what I am referring to, and since they are (sadly)thought influencers a lot of people are talking about how this is a dumb idea, and how Winston should be the starter, and how Hill won’t help the Saints win. It’s odd.

The hot take I've been riding has been that Taysom will be the 2021 QB (I did not predict this weekend though). He's at least plan A. That's mainly just following the money. My expectations of how good he will actually be was non-existent. I had never seen him take one drive as a starter. I don't take stock translating his joker snaps to QB.

If he plays good I will be very happy. I'll at least have some optimism if my take comes true and it's not just a matter of fact statement.

Only those who care more about being right than Ws. Yeah, I like to give my opinion as much as the next guy and, sure, I like it when I guess right. But if anyone is upset because "their" guy got outshone by the "other" guy, they should be tarred and feathered.

Maybe my perception is off but there seems to be a larger contingent of Saints fans who were scared and skeptical of Jameis being the starter with opinions being given that he would fail. It is kind of evidenced with how many threads there are congratulating Taysom on being the starter and the amount of "sigh of relief" posts that it is him.

Personally, they are both Saints so I need both of them to excel when their number is called, in any form or fashion.

If he does well, pretty much everyone here will be happy. But also, if he does poorly, there will be a large contingent happy to tell you they were right.
Sure, but that’s not particular to Taysom
- it’s part and parcel with the ‘Kamara body language’ or ‘Drew’s arm’ or ‘Cam and DD are mad at Drew’ etcetcetc

I’ll say this as someone who has been pro-Jameis: a big part of that has been that I trust Payton. He sees a ton of stuff we don’t and I figured if it were Jameis, it was bc of what Payton saw that we didn’t.

So I’d be pretty hypocritical to scream “I told you so” if Payton turns out wrong.

At least on here. The Gameday thread, where I’ve fired Dennis Allen 843,281 times, is fair game :LOL:
