Please. The guy played games with a severly separated shoulder. Would you have done that?

A few reasons why no...we 3-2 under Hill that's called a winning record. The guy doesn't have a good Offensive Cordinator, Oline, RB or WR's and is still 3-2.

Look the Truth is It doesn't matter who we have back there playing QB if our D can't keep a team from scoring 45 points in a game let alone 35 in a half because with that kind of give up on scoring this team is going to lose, and for those of you who focus entirely on the QB, this isn't madden, you can't expect a QB to keep up when he doesn't have the tools around him to find that kind of success.

This is what will happen you keep starting hill, you hope Gore can come back healthy and you make some serious personnel changes to the Oline, maybe even trade or bring in someone from F/A to stir things up. Our Oline is one of the worst I've ever seen this team have...

Honesty I have watched every game this year and I think that his performence has been sub par in all the games. But because we won that masked his play. I would make the change now and give smith a extra week to practice with the starters!

Ok. He's week. Did you watch him play during this frst years in the league?

i guess someone blocked out the 07 season from his mind because i remember Smith tried to play with a 3rd degree seperated shoulder. Oh but he has little heart cuz this guy says so.

All i know is a quarterback with our first pick in the draft this year is looking quite delicious...

Bradford or McCoy? Accurate as balls, great measureables, Hell yes i love them both

Tebow in the 2nd or 3rd? Has a better arm than hill, more athletic, has the best intangibles at the position in the draft, and a Singletary kinda guy...not to mention he has exactly the same bad rap on him Young had coming out of BYU..

Not sold on McCoy.

Maybe our offensive cordinator is limited because of a certain Noodle arm, and an oline that couldn't block an old man searching for viagra.

To put in Smith is to concede the season..........my answer is no.

Young was a record setting PASSER coming out of BYU...Tebow?? Stop the comparisons.
Alex would be running for his life just like Hill. Hill canT even step up into the pocket because the guards are getting destroyed.

I agree, I certainly wouldn't mind Tebow either. However, Hill has looked subpar. Should they bench him-no, but were going to find out how good he really is or not when the schedule tightens up. Personally, with this condom offense, where your not asked to do so much, I don't think Smith would of have looked any worse, as some suggest, than Hill. It's slants, 3-7 dump offs to the RB's and tight ends, and or wr screens here and there.

Why is everyone ready to jump ship? This game was not all Hill's fault. He isn't the one who allowed 45 points. We're not a team built to score 50 points. Expecially without Frank. I don't have anything against Smith, but I don't think he could have done any better.

He had a QB rating over 90 the first 4 games...was tied at 10th in the league with TD passes. He was also winning us games. This was a complete collapse...can't put this on his shoulders...everyone deserves the blame.
