Perhaps he saw something in the game films instead

well if 1 "bad" game gets you benched, the whole starting offense/defense should be benched.

What a surprise.

Read into it? Obviously our Offense needs work... why then would the coach take desperately nedded practice time away from somebody that could use all the practice he can get if the coaches weren't ready to look another way.

Maybe Singletary is finally realizing his QB philiosphy of just dont f**k up is the same as doing nothing, which equates to not winining.
He thought our running game (GORE) and our Defense (Roman, Clements, Harrilson, Bly, Balmer) was going to win games for us if Hill didn't f**k up. Well, Gore is not what we thought he was and our D is a Patrick Willis above average; that means we can not afford to have a DO NOTHING QB and think we can compete against real teams.

The Rams, Seattle and Arizona are not real teams
Why does everyone assume that since Hill won the starting job in preseason, its his no matter what.

If Hill continues to play subpar like he has, he's going to get benched.

07 and 08 have no bearing on him keeping the starting job, they just allowed him to earn it. Every single thing he has done in the past has absolute no bearing on him keeping the starting job, they allowed him to earn it, but nothing more.

I see Hill starting the Texan game, but he's going to be on a short leash. If the lack of production on 3rd down continues, if the horrible passes (even when he has time) continues, he will get benched.

im an Alex Smith supporter but if this is true this is stupid I dont see why you would bench Hill after 1 bad game, so if Alex has 1 bad game does that mean Nate Davis comes in

ya im a lil confused by this myself, maybe they wanted smith to be the man at some point all along....

Maybe we can practice more 7 steps drops so Smith can a to the WRs in less than 2 seconds...oh wait...I meant to say...

Not to mention that the entire pre-season all we heard from the beat writers was "Even if Hill wins this competition, Alex Smith will still most likely get his shot this season"

This is exactly the purpose of reporting it.
I think he has figured that Smith is going to be playing at some point this season as the line can't protect and it's only a matter of time before Hill gets hurt. He needs to have Alex ready for this when it happens...

Also, Alex has more repore with Crabby and has since training camp. Alex has been passing the ball to him on the scout team and so forth. Maybe Sing is looking for a spark and Alex + Crabby may give us a spark. Gore back, Crabby in the mix, OL moves, why not put Alex in and see what happens. Personally, I want to see Alex, Crabby, Gore, VD, Bruce, Morgan all in the lineup. Just looks like more firepower if you ask me.

The Rams may not be. Seattle just shut out Jax. That's their second shut out this year. Hasselbeck threw 4 TD's. I still Seattle will give us more fits than Arizona when it is all said and done. We're hunted as of now, not the hunters anymore in the West.
