In defense of Hill:
We know he can't seem to get his act together until it really really matters, and we saw that again on Sunday. It was pretty similar to that last drive against the Rams at the end of last season, with a couple of tosses to Bruce, who he didn't throw much to otherwise. I'm starting to think that Hill is getting comfortable in the first 3 quarters of a game, which is the bad part because then he doesn't perform. Tighten the screws though, and magically he comes alive.
In defense of the playcalling on the last series
I was angry about this, I thought like a lot of people on this board, that for sure we needed to play action and go for the home run. But afterwards I was thinking about it: Cards had no more timeouts left, so if you run it you guarantee the 40 second run off. Which would you rather face: the cards with 1:20 left and no timeouts on their own 20, or the cards with 40 seconds left and no timeouts on their own 20. Given the way out D had been stopping them, I'd definitely take the latter, because if receivers can get out of bounds and if you have receivers like Fitz and Boldin, those extra 40 seconds can be critical. I like to think that Raye was just playing the odds, and that he happily happened to win this time.
