Why the hate on Sing? If he's the HC, he's going to be criticized for decisions he makes. It comes with the territory. The good and the bad.
--Smith over Hill. Hill looked like his confidence was shaken and the offense was dead.
--Crabtree starting. That worked out pretty well. Raye's offense must be simpler than most of us thought for a WR to walk in off the street and have a good game.
--Hill over Smith against the Falcons. We knew what Hill was by the 3rd game of the season. He wasn't getting any better. In fact he was getting worse as time wore on.
--Rossum v. Battle. Battle has muffed 3 punts in as many games. At least Rossum caught the ball, yet he was cut. Since Battle has been worse than Rossum, shouldn't he be cut next?
--Rachal continuing to play. How badly does he have to play before he's benched? Does the Qb have to be injured? How many tackles for loss or busted plays or sacks will it take?
--Wragge, why isn't he playing? Considering how bad our OGs have been, he can't get a single snap.
He's gonna take the heat for the bad decisions and get a lot of the credit for the good decisions b/c he's the HC.
Okay I think the Crabtree move was a fluke. In fact he didn't have ANY impact in the 1st half. He had that ONE catch for a 1st down that by rights would not have been caught by most Receivers so I guess he had SOME impact but Hill lacking chemistry with Crabs kept forcing it to him and just about stopped looking at the other Receivers. We've seen this before. He did it with Bruce. In any case we didn't get points that entire 1st half. If Crabs was that big of an impact Hill should have gotten SOMETHING on the board. Even 3 pts.
I think that Smith is more of the reason that we won that half than Crabtree. Morgan had a good game other than the penalty that negated a Crabtree reception. I think that Smith could have done this even without Crabs on the field. Not nitpicking Crabs, just pointing out that it was a lucky move, and neither good nor bad. Sometimes luck is what the doctor ordered.
