Former Terp Shaun Hill finds his days in San Francisco are over

Former Terp QB Shaun Hill is on the market. The San Francisco 49ers signed free-agent QB David Carr to back up Alex Smith and granted Hill permission to talk to other teams about a trade or possible free-agent signing if he were released, according to Matt Maiocco of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat.

It's kinda ridiculous how Shaun Hill never got a fair shake in San Fran. The guy did everything he could possibly have done to earn the starting job there. He played great when inserted into the starting lineup at the end of the 07 season, and won games. Then he doesn't get the starting job going into 08 and has to again wait til the latter stages of the season to get his shot and what does he do? Again performs great and wins games. Then in 09, finally, he is given the starting job at the beginning of the season, and what does he do? Yet again, he plays great and wins 3 of the first 4 games. But then he has one bad quarter of football and he is yanked at halftime, never to see the field again. Why? Because they have too much invested in their other QB.

So let's recap: Shaun Hill is the 3rd most winning active QB in the National Football League percentage wise, has a career passer rating of almost 90.0, and has throw more than twice as many TDs as INTs. And yet, the 49ers have screwed him for the 4th straight year.

Agreed Barno. Almost sounds like Brad Johnson's career before he came to DC. And lets not forget, other than Vernon Davis, not a lot of targets on SF. I think he'll land somewhere - he's a much better prospect as a back-up QB than a lot of the guys out there. Hope he gets a chance to start.

Bad move 9er's. As I've said before: Jesus Christ himself could not take the Terps to the Orange Bowl. Best he could do would be Gator or Champs Sports Bowl. Shaun Hill did. Shaun Hill is a winner.

Does Barno want the Skins to sign Hill over his boy JC? What happens when blog comments intertwine? Is it like when the ghostbusters cross swords?

And I'll leave work now crowning that as the comment of the day....

Are you talking about crossing swords or "crossing swords"?

Is there some sort of Ghostbusters DVD with bonus footage of what the guys did in the station at night, when they were alone with each other?

Crossing swords like Johnny Drama and Turtle that one time? NO thanks.

I would love the Skins to sign Hill. I don't think he's the same talent that Campbell is, but he'd be a great back up. Too bad we already got Rex Grossman for that role.
