This has nothing to do with my belief that Tebow should start over McElroy. People just hate to hate and that's fine.
But to say that Hill played a good game today... based on what? How HORRIBLE he's played all year? It's good for Stephen Hill and that's not saying much. He can't catch and he runs the wrong routes. He's another 2nd round bust pick by Tanny. Who drafts a WR that can't catch the football? Tanny and Rex do because Hill can "block".
His route running sucks, his decision on what route to run is worse, his ability to catch the football is the worst part of his game.
So if I think Hill sucks and he sucked today again I'm being annoying. How about people just having blind homerism about a player because they don't want to admit what they already know? The kid sucks. Period. End of story. He'd have to get better at every aspect of WR in order to even be worth the roster spot.
This is really silly.
Just comparing him to other good 2nd round picks at WR over the last few years, and you'll see his numbers are pretty much right in line. Yes, he started as the #2 WR, but really he's also in a horrific QB situation. The idea that a rookie player who's been inconsistent at best certainly won't improve is ridiculous. It's the same thing we heard about Brick in 2006, Wilkerson last season, and countless other rookies around the league.
Jordy Nelson: 33 Catches 336 Yards, 2 TDs
Sidney Rice: 31 Catches 396 Yards, 4 TDs
Steve Smith: (Giants) 8 Catches 63 Yards - In 5 games
DeSean Jackson: 62 Catches 912 Yards
RIght now Hill is at 21 Catches for 262 Yards and most would consider this a fairly disappointing start. But to write him off and say "he kid sucks. Period. End of story. He'd have to get better at every aspect of WR in order to even be worth the roster spot."
is whining for the sake of whining.
