Anyway, game managers belong on teams with great offensive and defensive lines. When you can't pressure the QB and can't protect the QB, you need someone with superior talent at that position.
I agree with you completely.
However, Alex Smith does not have superior talent.
And therefore, Shaun Hill should start.
But he's a step closer to that. I mean, if we had playmakers all over the place and all Shaun had to do was throw a duck to them, we'd be fine. But we don't. Morgan doesn't seem to be getting open as much as I thought he would, and we have a bunch of WRs who are basically the same. Bruce forgot how to catch. Davis can't run the right route. Crabtree missed training camp. We need someone who has a cannon and can rifle in passes when the WRs are barely open. But like I said, it isn't Hill's fault completely, so I think he should be able to start for at least the next couple of weeks. If he keeps playing like he's been playing, don't you agree that we need a change, at least to try to provide some sort of spark?
one of the main complaints about Alex is his touch and accuracy.....and if you're happy we have a #1 WR in Crabtree....well, there is a higher chance of him getting hurt with Alex back there......
even during the preseason game he threw a pass over the middle, high and away and almost got someone killed...who was that Morgan, Davis, Bruce...?
Trust me I would LOVE if Alex was to turn into like Matt Ryan....but for every Matt Ryan there is a David Carr, Joay Harrington, etc.....and so far Alex seems to fall in that area....where as Nate Davis, although against 2nd/3rd stringers......he still showed touch and accuracy on his passes.....
so for now, with this Oline, we need Shaun back there...if we still want to make the playoffs.
