We're 3-0 in games that don't count, real reassuring.

OK, be 0-3 if you want.

i would say we are 2-1 cause cowboys starters> niners starters in that last game

Weren't we losing in the first half of each game? Maybe we're 0-3. The way we play this year, our best quarter might be the 4th.

Dallas is touted to be one of the better teams in the league along with the Patriots, Colts, Giants, Eagles and Chargers. Did we really expect Hill and company to go into Dallas and tear them up?

Maybe someone failed to see that the OFFENSIVE line wasn't giving Hill much protection! Inspite of that, they were only 7 points down at the end of the 1st half!

Davis looks very good, but let's not lose the fact that he played against the 2nd and 3rd strigers. So don't jump into the conclusion that he would have fared better against the Cowboys 1st team.

Too many people here give up too soon. Gore has a bad day and he's ready to be replaced. Hill has a bad day and he's ready to be replaced. Maybe if Joe Nedney would have missed that 1st half field goal, peeps here would be calling for his head too!

Sheesh!


Here we go with the Hillusions


Seems like you have TUNNEL VISION in that I'm a Hill Supporter? Wake up and smell the roses because the point that I'm trying to make here is that people have little patience that they're ready to give up on someone easily.

i think smith is the only one to score a td in the first half

2008 Detroit Lions

Preseason: 4-0
Regular Season: 0-16

What do you think the Lions would rather have. Preseason standings mean jack squat. They mean about as much as my Madden record.

The 49ers may be 3-0, but its the backups who have been getting the wins, not the starters. Huard in the Bronco game and Davis in the last two. How does that bode well for the regular season?

0-3 or 3-0 in the preseason means jack squat. It means about as much as my 49ers record on Madden.

Ask the 2008 Detroit Lions, who went 4-0 last preseason, if they would give up their 4 preseason wins for 1 regular season win (they would).

The 49ers may be 3-0, but its the backups who have been getting the wins, not the starters. Huard in the Bronco game and Davis in the last two. How does that bode well for the regular season?

We'll have better back-ups than we have had in recent years. These players are the future. That bodes well for the regular season. Try to be mildly optimistic!
Who else do we have!!!!!



Damn our inability to draft a franchise quarterback!!!!!!!!

What good are the backups if the starters are playing like garbage. Our starting QB hasn't led a single TD drive yet and we're two weeks from the start of the season.

Being optimistic can only take you so far, there's a point where reality has to start to set in.

Hill is our starter, so I support him.

However, I am concerned that our offense plays at a disadvantage as the oppossing defense's clearly recognize that Q.B. Hill due to his limited arm strength, simply cannot make all the throws to all parts of the field.

Therefore, defense's do not have to worry or game plan for throws to certain parts or depths of the field.... because Hill can't make them.

We have a starting Q.B. who has limitation on his passing skills due to his arm strength, just a fact.

Mike Martz knew this, Jimmy Raye now knows this.... and most scary is the defenses know this!

One more time...this!

this is a tired argument....Hill has shown he can be successful in Martz's offense and makes most of the pass need for a team to be successful.... defenses had a chance to adjust to Hill last year and they couldn't...when it counted, Hill still moved the ball on these NFL defenses....

again it is still preseason....so I'm not going to overreact that defenses have OMG figured Hill out.

we run the ball 2 straight times then on 3rd down we miss blocks......yes this has also happened to Alex....some are saying we are just making excuse for Hill....well there is a difference...

when Alex was finally "freed" as some were screaming for the team to do..... he still struggled more times than not...... Hill has shown that he can effectively pass on 1st or 2nd down.....and this is what I'm looking forward to in the regular season....

if the play calling doesn't change in the regular season....then we all can start to panic.

You're complaining that we're 3-0? People here would be complaining if we were any other record.

LOL so what record do you want so you won't complain?

Smith isn't good enough to win on a pop warner team.

Niners went 11-10 in the 21 games Smith quarterbacked prior to his shoulder injury.

Lucky they understand that its only Preseason.....oh wait.
I don't think anyone is overly excited about Hill's performance in preseason, but he is still the best the Niners have when it counts for real. I think that things will look a whole lot different when the regular season starts, especially in regards to playcalling. You just hope that his preseason performance is a link to his rep as a bad practice player.
Should we have acquired a legit QB to compete with our piss pore talent at the most important position? YES!!!

This is what you get when you put your faith in a career back up with questionable arm strength, a proven 1st round bust, and a rookie with some potential but that will require at least two years of grooming.
