Ok, so since everyone seems to be butting heads about who to start Hill or Smith for the rest of the season, I have one question for everyone. Since Alex Smith "sucks" and Shaun Hill can't manage a game as well as everyone thought he would, is there a college QB that would be a great #1 pick for the Niners??? Or do we keep what QB's we have and hope for a turn around from one of them.
Damn, we spent a pick in the last draft on a QB we haven't even developed yet. Nate Davis was one of the top reted QB's until teams heard about his disablity. I'd hate to think we wasted a pick just to let him sit for one season.
What scares me the most about Davis, is that I don't think he is a "game manager" type of quarterback.
He is "gun slinger" type, who likes to throw the ball and make plays.
Singletary seems to want the boring, throw some passes when desperate, score 10 points "game manager", who throws the ball out-of-bounds and avoids the turnover.
Nate Davis does not seem to fit the boring philosophy we have on offense, and if we try and turn him into that, he is going to have problems adjusting.
Brett Favre is a gunslinger type of QB and I would have loved to have had him on our team for the last 10 years.
I say let Alex start when Hill struggles and give Nate the reigns next year. Imagine a QB with acuracy and the arm strength to get the ball to Crabs, Morgan with B Jones streaking down the sidelines and VD in the middle. All we need is a QB to fire it off.
