"When Given The Opportunity!"... Thats all i heard yesterday when listening to conversations made by commentators, Pre-game, half-time, and post-game report. Hill is our starter, and even tho the O-line played bad, there are many other teams out there with a bad line and their Qb can make the plays that he is given.
When the Oline did hold up and no i didnt count how many times. The issue is that when you have a shot take advantage of it. He went down the field a few times, but most throws were over, or behind the receiver. Josh morgan Td was a short throw. He and VD were out of Sync, and when he did throw the ball, i noticed that most completions, where when throwing where he's at his most comfortable, and thats slants, and dumpoffs.
I have to say that I agree with Sing's reason for keeping Hill in the game. He won the competition and this is who Sing chose to help lead this team , and so so far we're 3-2(with a lot of help from the running game). This was a game that many fans didnt want, and i actually wanted to see. (Not us get our asses handed to us, but a tough fight.) I have to say it sucks we loss, but just like the Vikings game, we played a team that aint afraid to actually take advantage of our weaknesses, take advantage of our turnovers and mistakes, and like Sing says with us, aint afraid to hit us in the mouth.
Not time to press the panic button yet, but maybe time to unlock the case.
Hill has to show that he's more than a game manager. I think if Hill continues to lose against proven teams, but have great production against horrible ones, then Sing may make a Qb change, but i say give the guy a few more games, and when Gore gets back, if it's Gore that has a few big runs, but Hill doesn't put enough TD's as even he said on the board, then make a switch.
Even the guy on the sidelines yesterday said, even tho i know he didnt mean sit Hill for the rest of the season, he said and i quote, "This offense needs some type of spark to help out the defense. Maybe they should bring in Alex Smith." I say give Hill a little more time tho to prove himself against good teams, and make the plays when he has an opportunity to make them, and the o-line holds. At times they completely broke down, just like in previous weeks, but when they do hold, he has to take more chances farther down the field, accurately.
