Why does Shaun Hill ALWAYS suck in the 3rd quarter?

Hey, don't talk about my boy like that or I'll use my umbrella on your posterior!

Why do people always feel the need to critique even if we win? Can we just enjoy this win please!!!???!!!
I think it's coaching adjustments.. We just get out coached...
Hill needs to stop staring down receivers it's scary!
I was thinking the same thing. I think it has more to do with our piss poor half-time adjustments and us usually being down at half-time. I also think the opposition makes good half-time adjustments. I don't believe our defense plays well in the 3rd either. By the time Hill gets it (how the defense is playing him) figured out, it's the 4th Q.
well it might also be the playcalling....

in the 3rd qtr

1st drive

run, run, pass (the one where that 6'8 guy knocked down the pass), punt
they knew we had to pass and that is why that guy jumped up....any other down..he really couldn't take the chance of leaving his feet...

2nd drive

run, run, run, punt

now this is an important part of the game, and our playcalling..... after those useless drives of us basically playing not to lose...... the Cards drive down field and score a TD.... so now after we have been trying to run ALL day with no avail... the score is tied......and everybody and they momma knew we were going to come out passing.....so what do we do....

3rd drive.

pass, pass (deep pass call for some reason), pass, punt


this was the 3rd qtr.....so Hill allowed one passing opportunity in 5 play calls, to start the 3rd qtr.......then he was asked to throw 3 straight times when everyone knew we had to start passing now....

either way he struggled for one series really in the 3rd qtr.

but he came back in the 4th qtr and had a 8 minute 80yard TD drive to take the lead and put us up by 4pts, after the Cards had the lead.

he could've choked in any part of that whole drive and we could have lost.....but he didn't and we got a TD, like so many of the Zoners have been asking for this whole preseason.

hopefully Raye opens up at home next week or the home crowd will boo him out the stadium.

All I ask is he allows our QBs and WRs to get some early passes to get into rhythm like Walsh use to.....these could be our "running" plays
We should designate Alex the 3rd quarter QB

he did yesterday on more than one occasion...he didn't do this much last year.... we'll see in the next couple of weeks, hopefully he is just adjusting to the new offense and getting back in sync with his receivers.
Uhmmmm.... Hill had ONE good drive the WHOLE game.

That is nothing to write home about.

We Won, Yes..... but HIll had a very very, sub-par performance, take away that 1 drive.

Hill gotta play much, much better than that, if he expects to hold the starting position.

Look at his 07 stats he had a 123.7 QB rate in the 3rd quarter back then. This tells me it's not Shaun; but, more the play calling...
No Tard Defensive TD's = not sucking in the 3rd
Hill had one good drive the whole game, he blows

Well I rather him suck in the 3rd then suck in the 4th like Tim Rattay.

But Hill is not our QB of the future. He is a placeholder until Nate Davis is ready.

Seems to be the best hope at this point
