Hill regressed badly or The Raiders know how to defend against him. When he got sacked he tucked the ball away like a Fullback and looked like he was scared to get hit. I mean good job not giving the ball away but didn't keep his eyes downfields and gave up on the play.
hill regressed cuz Alex is taking reps from him with the first unit !

but smith didnt look good either which is why we need another game to decide who's the starter. alex is lucky to have a shot at the starting job. hill has earned the job for the last 2 years.
However, if Hill plays like he did last night in the regular season, the last two years mean jack squat.
Also, you can't go off of the past to base future success. Look at Derek Anderson's 07 season (29 TDs, 19 Ints, 3,787 yds, QB rating of 82.5) and then look at what he did the following year (9 TDs, 8 Ints, 1,615yds, QB rating of 66.5).
