First of all, enough with the fantasy football jokes. Do I play fantasy football? Sure. You'll be pleased to know I don't have Hill, however. As I tried to make perfectly clear (for instance, by completely leaving "numbers" out of my original post), my opinion was based purely on my own observations.
Second, I get what you all are saying with the record, but it's a very weak argument. Great quarterbacks can be the cause of wins, but it's a fallacy to reverse it. Wins in and of themselves don't determine that you, in fact, have a great quarterback in place. In my humble opinion based on watching both games, we won in spite of having a below average quarterback at the helm. When the going gets tough, and we need him to come through, I have a strong suspicion he will come up well short.
Bull$hit-Have you been watching the NFL games? How many quaterbacks in the first two weeks that are considered quote unquote really good-lost the game. While he didn't pretty stats-he did win the game when he had to last week with the drive that put them up for good. While the defense won that game for us, the line plain and simple sucked the sweat off a dead mans @#$% last week.
As long as he doesn't turn over the ball to much with costly plays I'm fine. Oh sure he may lose one or two games, but WHO doesn't-Montana, Young, Unitus, Bradshaw, they all did from time to time.
Get a QB now who? Trade a high pick that may not work out with us! He doen't know the system, would have to get acclimated with the players-which in turn would cause confusion which in turn leads to turnovers-its to late.
And the real reason not to let Davis play is that they want to develope him properly till he is ready. Like Montana, Young, Brady all were. Hill ain't flashy, but right now they are winning and he has only started 13 games and is with a line that is still developing. Plus, put SOME of the blame where it belongs-the play designs have been so vanilla-its like Robert Conrad and the battery commercial-I dare you to knock it off, com'on I dare you!
