What pisses me off is that Alex supporters will say s**t like, " oh we just want the best QB to be on the field and we wouldn't care if its Hill or Smith as the starter".
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.
Did you not watch the first Arizona game in 07?Smith did exactly that,despite the dropped TD pass that was perfectly thrown to D-Drop.You guys act like Smith has never shown any hint of reaching his potential,which is complete bull.If Hill is such a sure thing,why is there even a QB competition going on?You think Singletary wouldn't have named him the starter already if it were as clear cut as you seem to think it is?Hill is pretty good and has done well for what he is,but the best thing for this team would be to have Smith become what we need,a franchise QB.Not saying that is a sure thing to happen by any means,I am not a blind supporter of anything except for the team,but for you guys to think that Smith will never be any better than he has been to date is just ludicrous.
Smith has made some plays in his career, I won't deny that....
But its not that big of a deal since he was NUMBER 1 pick!!! Of course he has to make some plays! Not trying to take that one
comeback away from him, but Hill has done it more than Smith in less games.
And the reason there is a competetion is because obviously the organization doesn't want to come and basically say, " yeah guys, we f**ked up on that first pick 4 years back. We're releasing Smith and naming Hill the starter".
They resigned him because they would've lost more money if they released him. And obviously, they haven't completely given up on him. He has his last chance this year.
Don't give me that crap, " oh it would be better for Smith to be the franchise QB than to have Hill start since he was already reached his cieling of potential".
Well, honestly, I would rather have Hill play the way he has in his 10 games and win games for us, than to keep waiting for Smith to become the QB he "should" become.
