All I can say is, if Smith cannot muster up a win vs. Tennessee, get his ass outta there and put Hill back in. I'm happy the guy is playing well, but we need some W's.
I would LOVE to hear your brilliant reasoning behind this statement. Any fool who has watched Hill play can clearly see that Smith is the superior option at this time......
he maybe superior as a QB....but in the offense we are trying to run.... I still don't know...... I really don't know what I want right now myself...
Alex looks good out there.....but we need to use him more....this is what I thought would happen if he was brought in....we would be passing it deep more....and more creative plays......but with Raye as our OC or Sing deciding our strategy in games.... I need to see more from Alex before deciding if he should stay out there as a starter the rest of the year...and it is not really because of Alex, but more so because of our stubborn coaching staff.
it is real stupid, but the reality of the situation is we are just trying to keep the game close and trying to win late with a TD drive or what ever in the 4th QTR... (like we have a couple of times with Hill)......its like they are trying to do the same thing with Alex......the problem is... so far Hill looks comfortable out there in the 4th qtr when the game is on the line and we need a long nice drives that end with a score.
so far in 2 games....when Alex has had a chance to drive down field and with or tie a game, it hasn't worked out....a combination of Oline and Alex...
first game, like I have said already I don't blame Alex because we came back into the game because of him....but one that one drive, it didn't work out...there was alot of time on that clock when that INT happened.
2nd game vs the Colts.....with Raye/Sing gameplan....we just tried to keep it close, EVEN though our defense was giving us opportunity to blow the Colts out.....so they ask Alex to drive one more time down the field late in the 4th qtr.....and it didn't work out....again....Oline and Alex to blame.
at the end of the day Wins are the only things that count.....if Alex struggles these next two games, I wouldn't be surprised if Sing made a move...
again like I have said, I don't expect Alex to struggle....he has impressed me with some of his passes....I just wish the coaching staff would allow our QBs to play.....we have playmakers on offense....we don't get penalties that stall our drives....we should be able to score on almost every drive........the OC (and Sing?) are holding us back.
