Val, buddy - chill man
To answer the original poster's question, some people believe that Hill isn't the problem with the offense, and that unless we can block people and run the ball effectively, we'll have the same problems.
Granted, having Alex in the game may make the 8th guy in the box back up, but a lot of times on our runs, it's the other 7 that cause us fits.
Also, lots of folks are still scarred by Alex's performance a few years back. Your last impression sticks with people a long time.
I hope he gives the offense a shot in the arm, and we start moving the ball consistently. Maybe then the running game will also open up.
