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.

Thanks to Ninertico for pointing out what should be common knowledge among Niner fans - that sometimes good coaches set up competition for the starting QB position. I mean really - if Walsh can bring in a guy to compete with the greatest QB in the team's history, Singletary can be given the benefit of the doubt here with respect to a competition for this position this season.

Too right! On the 49ers "Complete History" DVD, Walsh is giving a TV interview in 1988 and says "We have to decide between Joe Montana and Steve Young." He really was concerned with Joe's health at that point, and wasn't sure which way he was going to go. If Young could compete with Montana in 1988, then Smith can compete with Hill. Unless Hill and his supporters can't handle a competition with a bust, of course.

And another thing. New offensive coordinator (again!) this year... I'm pretty sure Singletary would like a QB that has proven he can improvise with a new system... which Alex has proven time and again he can't.

This is something that is patently wrong. Jimmy Raye's system is Norv's system with a few differences. The routes are all the same, the protections are the same, just some terms are different. Smith is nearly an academic genius, meaning, his brain will memorize the new terms easily. When he gets on the field the system still works the same around him, it's not something he needs to re-learn how to play.
Captain obvious to announce Scot's choice for starting QB after the third pre-season game. How exciting. . And if you think that this decision isn't going to be made by Scot, I have some ocean front property in New Mexico to sell you.

As the days pass, I become more and more disenchanted with the so called "leadership" of this organization. It's makes you think about what could have been. What the hell are we doing here with Scot and Sing? We had the chance to do it right. We were starting over. It is absolutely preposterous that we are in this position. We got a Mulligan for the Nolan hiring, and then we shanked another one. I have a new saying for 2009 now, "Scot and Sing equal nothing."

At least Shanny has come out and announced his intention to coach again. If Jed isn't working the phones right now in order to line him up after this season, then he is as big of a bumpkin as his father is. Can we get some true professionals back in this organization? PLEASE!

What has Shanahan done since Elway retired?You know what he has done,he coached his way to being fired by his best buddy.He is one of those guys better suited to being an OC than a HC.After he won a couple of Superbowls with Dan Reeves team,he slowly and steadily sank to the bottom of the AFC west.Mike Holmgren would be a much better choice for HC,luckily we already have one.You really should get over your unreasonable hate for Singletary or at least change your handle,it makes you seem like a troll to put on your act with that dumb handle you are sporting.

Listen, you try hard. I'm one that certainly appreciates effort. However, you have to know where best to apply that effort. For instance, some people only post in the Parking Lot because that is where they can give the best effort.

vol you think you know? or you don't think Singletary will say much until the announcement?

I think it will be " played out " as a neck and neck battle and smith will be named starter.

Regardless of whether volniner knows anything or not, I think he's right. Because Alex Smith is gong to prove himself to be the better player. He now has better coaches, better receivers, better linemen, and a better attitude since the last time he played in a regular season game when healthy, which is nearly 2 years.



How are the current crop of coaches better for Smith then the famed qb guru's in Turner and Martz he had at his disposal before?? They couldn't even "fix" him. Some of you wishful thinkers will depart from reality and say anything to perpetuate the dream that Smith can magically turn into a functional qb 5 yrs after his arrival to the NFL. Why not give him another 5 yrs to do so...........

And you should not be siding with an unproven, inexperienced and grossly unqualified coaching nobody like MS (who was NEVER a niner and has no previous ties with the team) over a proven winner and former 49er coach like Shanny who you seem to be willing to bash at will. It makes you seem more like a MS/Bear fan instead of a niner fan.

"EXACTLY which is why most teams don't operate this way"

Ninertico quote: Assumption or fact? If it is fact, then show the proof as most teams do have competition at the QB position no matter what. I think most teams operate the same way as Coach S.



If I know something that you don't, it doesn't mean it becomes my job to provide proof.

Regardless, you missed the point. It's completely dysfunctional to claim you have a playoff-caliber team in JUNE (which most coaches would not do regardless of whether or not they knew who their starting qb was) but not know who your starting qb is until the 3rd preseason game. I shouldn't have to explain why that's a problem but the reasons are numerous.

Uh, and NO, most teams do not operate this way or the same way as MS - which is a laughable notion. Most teams know who their starting qb is long before now and certainly WEELLLL before the 3rd preseason game. Very few teams still uncertain as to who their starting qb is this late have gone on to do well during the following season.

Again, if you're not aware of this stuff and need "proof" then you shouldn't even be communicating with me. This is common knowledge floating around out there for all -- you either have it or you don't.
