Yup that's what I was thinking. He is a nolan nut hugger if I remember rite. That makes me dislike em. But this artical seems virtually unbiased, which when he usually talks niners, crap pours out lol
Beware the sudden agreement with an idiot...
Why the hate? Come on man can't we all just get along ha ha! Oh yeah calling people names on here could get ya banned. So just a fyi, and billy is a good dude man. Don't understand the hate lol
No name calling from where I sit.
Besides we all know King is an idiot so couldn't this be a warning to the Faithful?
LLike the old proverb says, you lay down with dogs you'll come up with fleas.
King was wrong on so many parts of this it's not even funny.
1) Most locals want Hill to start. Many of them just want Alex gone from what I have seen and heard last season. I listen to KNBR and it seems that most callers are ready to move on. I think that's dumb, but hey what do I know I live in Washington. lol
2) Smith played behind the worst OLines in 49ers history. When Hill got the nod last season he had a half game with a bad OLine. From then on it was about protecting the QB. So he had the benefit of better blocking and a dumbed down playbook to fit his attributes. Mmmmm seems to me that with Smith out for the season that OF COURSE, Hill was better. Smith didn't take one regular season snap. It's foolish to base Hill's prior to last season success against Smith's lack of opportunity last year. Especially if you're gonna climb out on a limb and state that Hill is better. Don't forget your limb saw on your way up the tree.
3rd) how many come from behind wins does Hill have v. Smith's previous seasons as the Starter? What, ONE? Oh yeah that just oozes confidence from the masses don't it? Smith at his worst looked like Hill at his best imho. But the fact is that Smith didn't have an opportunity last season, because he was done for the year by game 1. The team had NO choice but to stick with JTO or severely limit the playbook for Hill.
Which is why I do NOT understand all this love for a guy who has shown that he is a great backup QB. If Druckenmiller were still with this team and took over for Young like Hill did for JTO, would people want to stick it out with Druck?
Now granted this is a bit simplistic since Young is a HoF'er, but we're a fickle lot. If you aren't winning ball games for us and recently then we want you gone. Which is stupid. Garcia was a decent QB and look how many wanted to run him out of town on a rail tarred and feathered on a whiny beyotch assed WRs' say so. I was stymied as hell by that. But it happened.
So now King wants to tap into our collective psyche and suggest that Hill is better? Based on nothing more than Hill got to play while Smith rehabbed? King can suck my lilly white @ce. Geezus I hate that guy.
