Because the team has so many other signficant issues, it really doesn't matter who's at QB. Singletary realized the league had figured out Troy had serious limitations...and whatever polish was on his apple had tarnished. He had to do something...and for a game, it worked. I'd say whether it was Troy or Alex at QB in San Diego, it wouldn't have mattered a bit. So, it comes down to this...neither guy can keep company with Rivers, Rodgers, or even Josh Freeman in terms of what they can do for their teams. Let's face it, much as Alex has been the whipping boy for many of you, there are many issues on this team. Very inconsistent OL, receivers who seeminly can't get separation against the better teams, drops, DL that wasn't nearly as good as most of us thought, porous secondary, spotty special teams...that's enough to get any team a 5-9 record. Top all that off with a head coach who really doesn't have a clue...no true GM...no identity...well, it's not hard to understand why the team is as crappy as they've shown this season. Wholesale changes are a must...and that includes the QB position...time to clean house.
The same goes for the seattle game. I say it wouldn't have mattered if Troy was QB when we played seattle. Seattle is not a good team and Troy has beat all 3 teams that weren't good. He might not of had as good of a game as Alex did, but the way our defense played against them, Troy would of made ENOUGH plays to pick up a win. Neither of them had a shot vs San Diego
Troy had a big part in beating the Rams (who are getting good) but he didn't "beat" Denver or Arizona. He didn't play well in either of those games regardless of revisionist history, but we still won.
