Hill's arm is strong enough to play in the NFL, otherwise he wouldn't have earned that starting position. He throws a lot more pases each week than we see on Sundays, so the real coaches have a lot more to go on than armchair coaches watching at home. And even then, we have seen him make enough plays in real games to know he can get the job done. It really is a matter of the team getting their offensive sh*t together, and game planning around the stregnths of the players - like any team sport. The short passing game brought the 49ers to the top in the past. So I am not really much impressed by this obsession that a QB be one of those strong arm physical studs that can throw through a brick wall. I am more impressed with a guy that can stand tall in the pocket, and get the ball away to checkoffs, and safety valves when primary receivers are covered, and big old D-linemen are about to knock the QBs head off. Hill seems to be pretty good at doing this.
i think it was murph and mac that summed it up, about 1:50 left in 4th, run 3yards, run 4 yards, 3rd and 3. gor is averaging 1.5 yards a carry in the game so far. if we get first down we win, so the best option would be to do a 3 yard pass. we ran, so the question is if you have a starting qb u cant trust to throw a 3 yard pass, he shouldn't be starting!
we ran and didn't get it. why. they stacked the box..... sound familiar
