Yeah, he just doesn't want to admit it yet. I like morgan to get time at both the #2 spot and slot because he can be a mismatch and sooner than later he will take Bruce spot.

Yea me too...Hill is a career backup
you know that is a bunch of b.s. coach sing ain't stupid. i bet deep deep down inside he wants a. smith to do it. like he or someone in the organization has said, smith has more upside & the better arm & younger. if he's bout the team then he has almost no choice.
The definition of STUPIDITY is "doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results". It's time for a change. It took all of the other NFL teams 3 weeks to figure out how to stop us cold. If we don't adapt (qb who can throw) we will perish.

please be right
There shouldnt be any indecision here, Smith showed more in this one half as Hill did in the previous 5 games.
Alex Smith needs to start the rest of the year, Shaun Hill is a good backup nothing more. Now if Alex doesnt succeed the rest of this year, at the end of the year cut him or trade him and move on and either draft a QB, or go after one in free agency or trade.

But enough of Shauan Hill. At least with Alex we can attempt to throw the ball downfield to Crabtree and VD

Wait just a minute. Why should Sing make a decision now? Let it be a mystery for as long as it can stay a mystery. Why should he show his hand to the colts and the rest of the league? So the colts can game plan for Smith or Hill next Sunday?
I dont think Singletary can afford to not start Smith. These fans are tired of a losing team that cant produce offensively. He pulled the trigger when he benched JTO, and Hill started the very next week. I think he does the same thing this year, except Hill will be the one riding the pine.

Finally, I think we'll see Brandon Jones and Jason Hill in action.

Put Battle on the inactive list, and maybe Spurlock too.

Given our luck, it may be safer to just not field punts for the next few games.

If Singletary puts Hill out there again against Manning, I'm giving up on Singletary. You can say that the reason we lost this was because of him to begin with. That fumble by Battle was inexcusable, and he's out there returning punts, only God knows why.

I think Smith will start. Smokescreen. Singletary probably doesn't want to make it seem like he rushes decisions, and maybe he doesn't want Indianapolis to know who starts so we can have an element of surprise.

I agree.

Come on coach. This team needs a leader who can deliver results not just a likable guy. This is how a team slowly turns on the coach when you don't know what to believe. Smith did nothing but go out there and perform. Singletary says he wants the best 11 guys well it's clear Hill isn't one of those guys now. You state emphatically that Crabtree will start as a rookie who hadn't performed until today, Smith goes out and delivers the best offensive performance by a QB all season and you're "undecided"?

Smokescreen or not I'm starting to have my doubts about Sing. I thought he was a really smart coach and he's not proving that as the season goes on. If you're serious about the playoffs, settle this QB situation. You can't continue to "rotate" QBs like you rotate linemen (and we've seen how that works).

Smith should start and the coach should say that emphatically. Newsfalsh - the 49ers can't run so they better try to throw. It's life. You adapt to your teams strengths and not force them into something they're not (like a power rushing team). Sing's can't be stubborn like Nolan and before it's too late, the season will be gone and the entire fan base will be calling for his head.

Smith is gonna be the starter, Sing hasn't announced it yet cause he needs to sit Hill down and explain it to him.

-There's an emotional side to this game, and as you've noticed with Singletary he tends to sit 2 players down in the position battle (a week before the game) and explain his decision so there's no hard feelings/distrust between him and his family.

This is exactly what's happening guys, calm down. He's just doing it the right way, you should not tell a player he's benched through the media, its classless.
