Time will tell. What everyone is overlooking is Coach Singletary was giving Clear signals all the way up until this past Monday, that he was undecided on the starting season Q.B. and appeared to be wanting to see one last time in the upcoming Dallas game which Q.B. Hill or Smith would take the bull by the horns and then, like magic, when Singletary discovered on Monday that Alex could not practice this weekdue to a sprained thumb, presto.... Hill is named the season starter.
Bottom Line: Singletary onl;y made the call now, because Alex had a sprained thumb. So the Q.B. race was much , much closer than you think.
