One thing that Hill has, and Alex doesn't, is heart. The entire offseason was available for evaluation, and Hill was chosen for a reason by the people who are in this business for a living. Could they be wrong? well, sure, why not.
Anyways, it's a free world, just my opinion.
Epic Fail... You think a kid walking on the field and trying to win for his team with a separated shoulder is lacking in heart? A kid with 30 million in the bank... staying through every meeting and working hard to get back on the field... lacks heart? A kid that created a foundation for educating youth... lacks heart?
Again... you fail horribly, and it's a pleasure not knowing you.
Nothing personal, but I'm talking about his play on the field. Like I said, Alex is a nice guy, but I just don't see the will to win and to act upon a given situation like say great players like Willis or Gore have shown. That's what you expect from a $30million man, at least. He seems more laid back and waiting for things to come to him.
Is he trying his best, he probably is. Is that enough? The coaching staff surely doesn't think so.
Think: Eli Manning or even our very own Bryant Young
Not every player has to be a loud-mouthed, fiery jerk to express leadership and heart. How about staying during the bye week to work out with Gore and Crabtree? Smith did... where was Hill? Off fishing in Kansas, is my guess. No big knock on Hill... he is a leader with heart... but so is Smith... whether you accept it or not.
