At least now we know that:
1) the taser doesn't work
2) the morgan motion doesn't work
3) run run run doesn't work
4) run run run again doesn't work either
5) shaun hill can carry this team as far as necessary
Add on at will and enjoy
PS : i bet this list will be 20 items longer before the end of the season (that is if Raye stays)
"shaun hill can carry this team as far as necessary"
Perhaps, without the others things you mention, Shaun Hill wouldn't be able to carry this team as far as necessary. Perhaps, he would not fair nearly as well when opposing teams aren't stacking the box selling out to the run? Maybe other teams would simply choose another way to skin the 49er cat, and maybe that would not be such a good thing foe Shaun Hill and the team? Just saying, it ain't nowhere near as simple as you are trying to make it to be....and teams will probably eat up our passing game if it wasn't for respecting our running game. He ain't no Brett Favre, he ain't no Manning...he's probably only as good as our running game, receiver's and our blocking is and nothing more. They will likely smother his options down field the minute they stop respecting the run. If that happens, the people will get to b***h about (whoever the coach is) running a dink a dunk offense with no run game and no long game either.
This team still needs an accurate rocket arm with poise, leadership and good completion percentage, and even when it has it...it better still be able to run that ball, which they would likely be even better at as teams would not be so eager to sell out on the run....which is what every team we have played this year has done.
