The ability of any QB to go down the field helps keep defenses honest. Yep, even if the QB is not entirely accurate and throws a few picks here and there, that ability will still keep a defense more honest than what Shaun Hill has showed this season. Even bad QBs have the ability to make a play down the field and defenses have to account for that, no matter how many picks they may throw. With Shaun Hill they don't, it's pretty simple.
I'd like to point out that when Gore was in the lineup the Line wasn't that bad. With Gore out and a Rookie taking his reps? Ummmmm it just put one of those big @$$ movie premier spotlights on our sorry @$$ QB1.
Against teams like the Rams he looks good. Against a halfway SOLID opponent he shows everyone what he is. A backup holding down the Starting job.
I understand the need to support the Starter but he's not deserving of this kind of goose stepping loyalty. Can't people just say that HE's a HUGE part of the Offense being so damn ineffective? I have a hard time blaming the OC for this because I know the limitations our QB1 has. I can break down how a Defense needs to attack him. I did it last season before he was ever named the opening day Starter.
And look what happened. It happened right to the letter. I don't mean to pat myself on the back at all. I just want people to take a step back and stop piling on the dissenters because they are speaking their minds about our QB1.
That's not to say that I agree with name calling(including changing a man's name) but that if it's a legitimate beef then they have a right to vent without being called anything but a passionate fan.
