Shaun Hill has officially been named the starting quarterback for the Monday Night game two weeks from tonight against the Arizona Cardinals. What I think is most interesting about this is that this will give Hill the opportunity to work with the first team offense for the first time since I think the first or second week of training camp. I'm curious to see what he can do with a couple weeks work with the #1s.
I'm not surprised by this decision, but at the same time I would not have been surprised if Martz did what he could to talk Singletary into sticking with J.T. O'Sullivan. I stuck up for JTO early on but am certainly willing to admit I was somewhat wrong. I think Hill's quick, decisive release can make up for a poor offensive line. That should mean fewer turnovers and more points. And with our defense, the more points the better.
