I was thinking the same thing. I'm so over all these useless debates. Both Hill and Smith have their positives and negatives. Whats the point of debating them endlessly. At the end of the day people need to just agree to disagree. Shaun Hill isnt Joe Montana, and Alex Smith isnt Ryan Leaf.
Shaun Hill - scrappy gamer who's won enough to warrant the starting job on a team with no real QB.
Alex Smith - a dissapointment so far (injury or not) but still not a clear cut bust IMO. I'd say he's a "bust until proven otherwise." I just dont think he's an EPIC bust as of yet. Even if he was spectacular, I'd still say he's a disspointment...just due to injuries. His whole situation has been a "bust."
All that aside...we're 49er fans..and we should just wish the best for our team, regardless of the name on the jersey. If Huard ends up starting...then fine...if not..whatever. Just be 49er fans.
A very reasonable attitude indeed !!! But you forgot that this is the Zone and that reason and logic don't count for much in many posters eyes,lol.
I for one,thought Alex would be a really good QB. I have changed my mind because ,like you I have actually watched him play and have been very disappointed in his poor play when he was healthy. (and yes,it was just him,not the team and players or coaches around him that caused his poor play,just him. Of course with better OC's and better OLines and better WR's etc,Alex would have been BETTER,but still not very good at all,imho).
I also like Hill and believe he is much better on the field than Smith. Not a long term answer,with his less than strong arm but good enough to bridge the gap until we draft a really great one.
Huard seems a good backup ,a good signing.
I would cheer for Alex if he were named the starter by some miracle. I ,like you ,am a 49ers fan and cheer for all the players on the roster to do well !!!
But I do hope we draft a QB this draft and I hope he delelops into something special !
