I can't believe that people are so damn worried about ball control when we can't control the thing with our lame duck QB. Pun indeed intended.
and this is EXACTLY how I felt about Alex and Garcia (late in his career with the 9ers)
where they would rather throw the ball away on 3rd downs than take the chance of trying to make the first down.
I became a Hill fan when he did the opposite of this and converted may 1st downs last year.......This year he doesn't seem to be doing them at the same rate.....I feel it has more to do with playcalling and the Oline more so that Hill.....some say that it is because teams have figured him out..... posters have been saying this since last year...but Hill was still being successful...... some are saying this year proves that teams have figured him out and its a lost cause to have him back there.....
If teams have figured him out (since last year apparently) then why did Arizona, after taking the lead, in the most important part of the game.....why were they not able to stop Hill....since it would be soooo easy right....but they couldn't and he guided a 80 yard drive for a TD....its not like there was one HUGE BIG play that helped us get down field.... the Cards had numerous chances at stopping us, but they couldn't stop our *gasp* passing game when it counted.
Same goes for Seattle....I know some like to think that they are weak or what ever, but their defense is legit......and again Hill drove on them when we need him to....and they could not stop us from getting points....I believe Hill drove 60yards and took off 8mins in the 4th qtr....
again....same thing with one of the best defenses in the league....the Vikes....when it counted Shaun picked them apart and drove down field....if he has been figured out by now, the Vikes of all teams should have put a stop to our drive from the very start.....but they couldn't....why? We took a 4point lead with a touchdown pass from Shaun.
I'm not saying Shaun Hill is playing lights out....but for alot of people to say that he should be benched because teams have figured him out....I don't know man....when the game is on the line, it doesn't seem like it.
The whole team came out flat and played horrible in the Falcons game......like some other posters have said....if the team is playing better, but it seems like Shaun is struggling and these next few games and it is clearly obvious that teams have "figured him out".....then yes I expect Singletary to make a change, and rightfully so.
