No team is worried that Shaun Hill’s passing is going to beat them; the key to beating the 49ers is forcing them to throw, taking away their run game. I’m reminded of a conversation I had a few weeks ago with Phil Simms about quarterbacks. We were talking about making big plays in the passing game and the only way that teams will respect the long ball is based on the quarterback, not the wideouts. His belief, which I agree with completely, is that no matter how talented the wide receivers, it’s the quarterback’s ability to throw accurately down the field that’s the key to a successful passing game. Hill is 4 of 22 for 144 yards when he throws the ball more than 20 yards. He has one long pass for 50 and another for 39. So if you’re the Texans, are you going to worry about Crabtree being in the game?
Probably the main reason I want Hill benched. Thanks to oldman49er for posting this in that locked Shaun Hill thread. Didn't know where else to post it... but damn. Just f**king horrible. Any defense can afford to play one safety at the line at all times because Hill is 4 for 22 throwing past 20 yards. LOL. 4 for 22. WOW.
thank you! so many fans are in denial. Hill flat out is not the answer, never was never will be. You can stick Jerry Rice on one side and Randy Moss on the other with Andre Johnson in the slot and he still wont throw over 200 yards in a single game, it sucks but it's just about all we have. He throws scared, is afraid to try to beat coverage and cant thread the needle.........
