PA9er is absolutely correct! If you are going to make a statement that you KNOW that Alex is going to be named the starter, then you should identify the source of your information, because by your statement you are saying that Mike Singletary is lying to everyone when he says no decision has yet been made.
Sing's entire character is based on telling it like it is, that is, telling the truth. If Sing had decided on Alex then he would say so. He is not another Mike Nolan, who lied through his teeth.
I trust Sing's character more than your unsubstantiated statement.
Question: since you seem to think you have insider's knowledge about this, would you be willing to bet against those of us who believe Hill will be named the starter?
I am a journalist. I look for independent corroboration of otherwise unsubstantiated claims. Your claim has not been echoed by anyone, anywhere. No leaks, no intimations, no suggestions from anyone that Alex has been anointed as the starter.
If Sing is who he appears to be (and I for one believe he is), then no decision has yet been made as to who will start, but Hill has the edge.
Like I said before, I am going to trust Sing over you.
Perhaps the player with whom volniner is acquainted expressed his OPINION, rather than what the coaches are saying.
Perhaps the player with whom volniner is acquainted relayed the opinion of an ASSISTANT coach.
Perhaps the player with whom volniner is acquainted is SHAUN HILL, who would of course assume Smith is going to win.
