Starting Quarterback Still Anyones Guess
Another practice, another case of Nolan having no clue what he is doing with the quarterback situation. I was reading some Niner news today and came across the breakdown of the reps the quarterbacks have taken with the first team. O’Sullivan: 7.5, Hill: 2.83, and Smith: 2.67
Last week Nolan was on record as saying that there were 15 practices left and each quarterback would get equal time with each team. Last time I checked my math 15 divided by 3 was 5 and J.T. is currently at 7.5…hmmm that just doesn’t add up. Here is are some answers from Nolan regarding the whole quarterback situation and don’t be surprised after reading Nolan still has no idea what he’s doing.
Question: Didn’t see Shaun out there with the second unit. Is he still in the mix?
Coach Mike Nolan: “Yes. I wouldn’t read anything into it.”
Question: Can we read anything into the fact that O’Sullivan has all the first-team reps since the game?
Question: It doesn’t seem like there’s any rotating going on . . .
Nolan: “There’s going to be a practice this afternoon. There’ll be one tomorrow. And we’ll see how it goes, OK?”
Question: Why did Shaun Hill not get any snaps?
Nolan: “Because of the rotation we have right now. That’s the way it is.”
Question: Will Alex go with the first team in the afternoon?
Nolan: “No. No decision has been made (about the starter). I’m confident we have three guys and we’re repping them.”
Question: Are you concerned with what the offense is going to look like when the season begins?
Nolan: “I’m concerned about every aspect of the football team, to be honest with you. It’s important we have a good offense. We have very good structure. But you go through a process to get to where you want to be. We’re going through that process. The lack of consistency is what everyone faces. It’s a normal thing.”
Hey Nolan let us help you out. Just put all three names in a hat and go from there.
