Barring any kind of major injury, it seems as though Hill is the 9ers starting QB. I don't think Alex will ever recover from this. I think he is destined to a life of being a second or third stringer in the NFL. It's obvious that he just doesn't have the mentality to be a starter in this league.
Just like Ryan Leaf, the boy's problem isn't physical, it's in between his ears. Although Leaf's issues revolved around maturity, Alex's problem is that is game carries no confidence or poise. He plays with a very anxious and erratic style, which will never cut it at this level.
We keep hearing that the 9ers are happy with him, and they feel he will be starter in the future, but I'm pretty doubtful since he still hasn't over come is mental issues and doesn't seem like he ever will.
Actually the begining of the end was probably when Rocky Bernard crushed him. What do you guys think?
