I'd say we'd be 1-1.
a pick or 2 here and there in the 'zona game and we lose. Hill won the game for us.
a pick or 2 here and there in the Seattle game and we still win. Gore won the game for us.
Just like those picks he threw in the first two games of 06 and 07? Oh wait...
Didnt make nearly as many 3rd down conversions as hill did either... and thats where the difference would have been... and please dont bring up that run either.
Hill has had a much higher completion %,
Why wouldn't he have a higher % ? 95% of his throws are 7 yards or less in distance, and usually to the first dump read. Even if he has plenty of time, he takes the easy short pass, and often gets rewarded with RAC yards. Alex takes more shots down the field and would hold it a lil longer for a chance at a deeper pass (but not excessively like JTO) Only Alex is more careful with the ball and better in the pocket than JTO proved to be. Hill is the safest (luckiest) of the bunch, and simply loves the short stuff. He has an ugly deep ball, and his decision making and accuracy is less than good when it comes to intermediate + deeper passes.
Hill has been doing just enough to help the defense and Gore win games... so he will remain our starter for a while... and one day when Gore and/or the defense fails... Hill will be required to do more. Then we will see if he can get things done. I hope he can, because the Niners come first with me... but do I think he can? .... eh, probably not.
