Cut him already
Waste of a roster spot
I'd rather sign Brit Miller off of the practice squad to take his place and move M-rob to 3rd string QB.
Alex Smith = Biggest Bust in 49ers History.
Go Shaun Hill.
You realize of course, that posts like this reveal you to be a fan with limited knowlege of football..
Our #1 overall pick in the draft is a backup. How is he limited with knowledge?
You guys are really being rough on people's man crushes here.
If it were only so simple. Being a fan of this team would be oh so much easier.
I mean, I have a man crush on the core group of dynasty 9ers. But how is pointing out the weakness of the product that we put on the field deemed a "man crush".
Last time I checked that's being a fan and calling a spade a spade?
This should make y'all nuts but I got these numbers from Maiocco's recent article "49ers still want Crabtree"
"...through two games, only three 49ers wideouts have caught passes. Isaac Bruce, Josh Morgan and Arnaz Battle have combined for 14 receptions for 170 yards. There are 10 wide receivers in the league with more yards receiving than those three combined."
Now obviously he didn't put Duke's 37 yards in there, but why should he? It doesn't make a bum look like a billionaire in the grand scheme of things.
14 Receptions for 170 yards in TWO freakin games?
PASSING (Comp-Att-Int-Avg) 37 - 58 - 0 - 6.1
Shaun Hill 57 37 353 64.9 6.2 1 1.8 0 0.0 50 8 48 87.8
Now look his QB percentage is all nice an clean with an 87.8 overall percentage. But when you compare it to the overall product? My dead granma could have an 87.8.
I want Hill to succeed, but damn yo, you have to have absolutely NO knowledge of Football if you consider those numbers good enough to retain the job.
Here is where we rank statistically as a team...
PTS-21.5 (12th) Take away the rushing scores and the FGs' and focus in on ONE lone TD in two games. It won't get easier only harder for Shaun to score.
We're ranked 30TH for cryin out loud. With about 8 matchups against SOLID teams.
I'm not standing on a podium to get Alex his job back. I'm pointing out that this crap CANNOT
continue. Our Defense CANNOT hold that strong against THOSE teams and expect us to remain in contention.
You can't even really blame Raye's Offense for this. Because when you go back over these two games, you'll SEE
that it is 100% the guy that is under Center. Soon as he whiffs one and it's nearly picked off he won't throw another deep ball the ENTIRE freakin game. Which invites the Defense to continue to stack the box making Shaun have to beat them in the air by doing like what I said they were going to do. Take away the short to intermediate (not like Hill gets good results there either) game and make him have to go deep or take alot of 3 and outs. 3 and outs are a disaster against the tougher teams on this schedule.
But you guys can have your little party and make all the wisecracks that you want if it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Me I'm gonna continue pointing this kind of stuff out. I apologize to those of you sensitive types that can't handle the truth.
