Then its the same people who never give credit to Hill for his wins and good play.
They say that hill never beat any good teams. Ok, so did Smith beat any good teams? the answer is no.
Wow, on one hand you complain about people not supporting anyone who wears a 49er uniform( smith), then you completely dismiss Hills 18 tds 9ints compared to Smiths 19 tds and 31 ints.
but but but but Smith played on bad teams and Hill had.......exactly, Hill had a bunch of rooks/2nd year players, and an ancient isaac bruce. and don't forget crazy ass martz and the 7 step drop.
Lets just say that Hill did have an amazing team that he played on... Is that still a good reason to say that smith is a better player?
No, im not saying that Smith can't be good, but as of now he sucks balls, injury or not, cuz when he was healthy, he also sucked balls, too.
So you ASSUME that I am a Smith guy because I am right on point with that stance?
Look, I am what I am and that is fair to midlan on this issue.
But I will compare Hill to drugs to an addict. After that first high it will NEVER get any better. Hill being the drug and you being the addict. You will sit and wait for Hill to take effect only to be disappointed and left wanting more.
While I on the other hand will be happy in the knowledge that I said no to drugs.
I already know that Hill will be the Starter barring a complete breakdown in upper management. But the difference between the Hill addicts and me is that I do want competition at EVERY spot including QB. Competition makes for a better team. And if Smith just happens to get better and PLAY better when given the opportunity then it's a Win/Win situation for all concerned. Right?
Or do you LIKE 9er players to fail?
So you will blindly support Smith just because he has more "potential". Well obviously he has more potential, more talent, more upside, because thats why he was taken as the number 1 pick!!!!
But Hill, on the other hand, has produced, has shown that he can win, no matter what the circumstances.
now you will argue that he didn't look perfect, his arm is weak, Smith has more upside all that BS, blah blah blah.
But why do you play this game? To win every f**king time you go out there!
Smith might have the more upside, but Hill has "it". And if you don't know what 'it" is, it is having that will to win the game when it is on the line. To rally your team back when you're down in the 4th quarter. To take control of the huddle and lead your team to victory.
Now don't get me wrong, Hill ain't no Joe Montana. And I'm also not saying that its just his leadership skills that prove him as the better player....You see him with his accuracy, and mobility, pocket presence, and all the other things that SMITH JUST DOESN'T HAVE.
