Hill v. Smith

So, I want to know what everyone thinks about our QB situation. To be quite honest, I can't decide who I want to start. On the one hand, you have Alex smith. He has started in the past and not really shown much of anything, but he has also had to deal with some very inconsistant line play, the OC merry go round, and (insert pet excuse here for Smith). The point in my mind I think is that he has had the chance and not performed. He's had his moments, but not really any #1 overall pick moments.

And then there's Shaun Hill. The career back up. He has shown lots of heart, good leadership, and some flashes of bad assitude. The trouble I think is that he doesn't look like a long term solution. He is about 30 years old, and although he has, I think, a lot of potential to improve, lets face it, his arm isn't likely to grow. He's careful, and smart with the ball, but not great.

Personally, I am leaning toward Hill. I think he at least deserves a chance to be the man for a season. Especially after his contribution last year. Even with lacking the canon, in our offense he thrives. But then, if he starts and shows he can hold down the job, but isn't destine for greatness, we all wonder if Smith would have been the next HoF QB for the niners if given the shot. It feels like chosing between an investment that will always yeild well, but never amazinigly well (Hill) and one that may yeild nothing, but could make you rich (Smith)
