About 90% of the stuff I read just assumes Winston will win the starting job, which at this point is based on wishful thinking rather than anything Sean Payton has said.
A bit of good news on an otherwise bleak day (McCaffrey going on IR for the rest of the season):
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Taysom Hills is "taking first-team reps this week in practice in preparation" for Week 13 against the Cowboys. Trevor Siemian is getting his reps with the second team. Siemian is 0-4 as a starter and his play has called off a cliff after looking passable for a few weeks. He has completed 57 percent of his passes while averaging 5.5 yards per attempt over the past two weeks. With the lack of pass-catching weapons New Orleans has to offer, switching to a quarterback who can make plays with his legs also makes strategical sense for the Saints. Hill posted 10 carries for 52 yards and one score per week across four starts last year. The rushing alone puts him in the QB1 conversation for the Saints' Week 13 game against the Cowboys.
Why not a tailback?
