Tye Hill makes first start; is replaced later in game.
Tye Hill made his first start at left corner for the Falcons in Monday night's loss to the Saints.
Hill was beaten for a touchdown by Marques Colston, cramped up and was replaced by Brent Grimes, who later made a great interception. It's unclear who the starter is heading into this week's game against the Redskins.
Any bets as to how our seventh round pick will compare to Hill?
Re: Tye Hill makes first start; is replaced later in game.
I was surprised to see Hill starting and matched up against Colston. Maybe my bias is showing as someone who always liked Hill, but I actually thought he had pretty good coverage on the TD catch, but 6-4 is going to beat 5-10 virtually every time when the ball is thrown high. In Tye's defense, Brees torched every single one of Atlanta's CB's the entire night.
