Numbers don't lie, but they mislead people who don't understand them.
Ask yourself, when did Huard play? Who did he play against? What kind of sample size are we looking at? What's the long-term potential? Is he better than Shaun Hill short-term and long-term? Would it be contrary to everything Singletary has said about the competition between Hill and Smith?
Also, by your logic, Coffee should start over Gore! Coffee has over 100 yards, while Gore only has 7!!!!!111oneone

Alex Smith 16 8 63 50.0 3.9 1 6.3 1 6.3 15 1 7 54.9
Nate Davis 11 6 67 54.5 6.1 1 9.1 0 0.0 27 0 0 103.2
Damon Huard 9 7 98 77.8 10.9 1 11.1 0 0.0 40 1 8 149.1
Shaun Hill 9 5 61 55.6 6.8 0 0.0 0 0.0 23 3 18 76.6
huard 7-9 for 98 yards a td no ints and rating of 149! also has the longest with a 40yarder...thats pretty damn good!
Someone posted the other day a very honest post about our qb's And how the only compatition alex has gotten is 3rd stringers...and i couldnt agree more@! We havent even brought in a promising 2nd string to compete! So finaly we bring in a decent vet 2nd stringer and then we dont even give him a fair chance??? Huard is not a Pro bowler but a avg qb that is a good game manager his lifetime numbers are way better than both smith and hill.
If eddie was running our team 1rd draft picks feelings or not he would have brought in a garcia a leftwich or another vet qb to compete with these avg Qb's. The team and GM has to be able to admit mistakes and do whats best for the team and give us the best product that can win the most games even if its at the expense of some embaressment !
