Smith creates a turnover and Sing banishes from Practice and "Shaun Hill opened the afternoon with 12 consecutive completions. He finished the day with 19 completions in 23 pass attempts." but all the insiders say Smith is on track to win the starting job.
I just don't get it. Unless all of Hill's completions are dump offs or 5 yard routes Can anyone explain this to me.
After being allowed to descend the hill, Singletary met Smith with a smile and a handshake. This was not the classic case of a bad decision or a poorly thrown ball. It was tipped at the line. As Smith said, "If you're trying to throw the ball around defensive linemen's hands, good luck," he said.
Added Smith, "The bottom line, is you can't turn the ball over."
Alex is right about the bottom line, I just don't see him taking care of the ball as much as Hill. Thats my bottom line.
Tipped or not tipped, I've also read that his first passes are rarely well thrown and it takes him a few snaps to get into it.
If they take the starting job away from Hill, I really hope Alex proves me wrong.
