Well honestly i say after his two years with us if he hasnt started then it's goodbye Alex, but i think he will be successful with another team, if he doesnt pan out with us.
Over all tho please stop with the comparisons, and some of you smith haters, once again manage to knock the kid, and act like hill is the second coming. i tell you this, if hill doesnt pan out this year than it's done for him as well.
Why because he's played longer than alex, and took him what 8 years or more to finally start a season. They say alex doesnt even have the potential to be a backup. Well lets be honest the only career backup we have on our team is hill and not even a backup, third stringer if i do remember correctly.
Whats funny to me is how hill fans think that all of a sudden after 8 years we are gonna tap into this potential. You have a better chance of montana coming out of retirement and taking over our team. Alex may not possess the skills that we as fans know you need to be a successful Qb, being that many of us are retired NFL players, so we know exactly what it takes.
Overall, it's still not over for the kid, but even Matt M. said in his article yesterday, yes, hill seems to be pulling ahead for the job of starter, however in the same sentence also said that alex is still getting better, and that will be the starter in the long run.
Hill fans themselves (some anyway) dont even think hill will finish the season. Im just ready for the starter to be named, and Week 1 to begin.
