Free them both and get a new QB!!!


LMFAO....I am about tired of both of them...lets get soeone different
I think Smith was smart to work on his chemistry with Crabs even if he lives in the bay area. I also think we mite see some Smith action this season cause Hill just doesn't cut it against the major franchises. I can't stand Hill's crumbling like a b***h response when he gets pressured in the pocket. Anyway, I'm a Nate Davis hopeful and am looking forward to seeing him start for us next year.

Well then you must want Davis b/c Smith's pocket pressence is his biggest problem

agreed. i hope Davis is ready to play next year, he has all the tools to be a legit QB and he was awesome in college. i still hope we draft another QB as insurance, we have to solve the QB problem sooner rather than later

It seems to be one of Hills biggest problems this year, which is strange because he seemed a lot more comfortable last year. He gets flustered even when he has the time to throw and checks down too much. Presence in the pocket is a skill that can be developed, whereas throwing lame ducks floaters seems to be a gift that some are just born with.

Alex practicing with Crabtree is terrible. Shaun Hill throws one of the weakest passes in the NFL, yet we have Smith with a very strong arm practicing with him... how's he gonna get used to catching floaters come gametime?

You don't think it would have helped leading into Crabtrees first game?

He'll probably not even play very much as it is for this game. He doesn't need Hill for two weeks just to get accustomed to 3 or 4 plays, if that.

Well if this guy can't catch a floater thrown to him, the 49ers really f*cked up drafting him #10 overall, and going through all this hassle to sign him.

Think about the difference between the Defensive Back having time to make up ground when comparing floaters and strong passes.

Yeah and? Do you think he's going to be our go to guy with no TC, and just getting here like last week? He realistically won't be a factor, especially in this offense. I see him being used more as a decoy. With that said, I'll be pleasantly surprised if he does more.
