I find it hard to believe that we wouldn't be getting better production with Smith.
It isn't that hard to believe.......
you guys just never give it up.......let me ask you Alexers a question.
DID ALEX COMPLETE ONE DEEP PASS in all his opportunities this preseason...
forget that! DID ALEX ATTEMPT ONE DEEP PASS AT ALL
this is one of the supposed benefits we would get out of Alex being our Starter...and he couldn't even show case it......I would rather have a QB who wins us games, than the occasional deep pass that might not be completed (its not like we have burners out there)
Hill is doing fine...and when we have needed him in the regular season to drive down field and get us a score with his "noodle" arm, he has came through for us....
Today with a fieldgoal....last week with a TD.....and of course many many example last year as well.
next week we are going need for him to pass more... I just hope Raye has a game plan that keeps the Vikes off balance....instead of this obvious 3rd and longs where everyone knows we have to pass.
