I think people are just happy to see some form of a spark on offense. Alex is playing solid, but aside from Alex and possibly braylon nobody else has done anything. Hunter is the only person so far who has looked like a threat on the field. At least IMO... But crabtree said he was hungry this week, so lets see how many tip drill INT's that results in.

That would be pretty cool/nice.
optimism is great, and I like Hunter too, from the moment we drafted him I was excited to see what he could do. He made a couple of nice plays against the Bengals but, honestly, he hasn't done s**t yet, and hasn't shown any more than Gore has so far. I don't know if this is the continued backlash against Gore for wanting a new contract, or that people have high expectations of him and anything less than those expectations means that he's a complete failure, or what, but this Hunter lovefest is absurd.
I hope he does well, and if he has a breakout game, even against one of the worst run defenses in football, I'll be happy and very excited. Until something like that happens these kinds of conversations are extremely premature.
