Shaun Hill, My Choice For QB If The 'Doomsday Scenario' Happened


There was a post not too long ago about who you would want for QB if the unthinkable happened and Kevin Kolb, Kyle Orton, Carson Palmer and Marc Bulger were not available. I think it's damn near impossible this would happen but there isn't much going on now in the NFL, or at my job (which is why im writing this).

A very good friend of mine and former roomate is a die-hard 9ers fan so I first saw Shaun Hill play when we lived together. I know he is a relative unknown, but he has shown he is a solid QB in this league. He reminds me of Orton, not a sexy name but a smart QB who wont kill you with turnovers. Over 3 seasons (2007-2009) with a very bad 49er team he played in 18 games while starting 16 of them. His record as a starter was 10-6 with a 23/11 Td/Int ratio. In 2008 he started 8 games and threw for 2046 yards and a 13/8 Td/Int. That translates to 4092 yards and a 26/16 Td/ Int over a 16 game season. Last year he played for a bad Lions team and started 10 games, going 3-7 but throwing for 2686 yards and 16/12 Td/Int. While the average NFL fan might not even know who Shaun Hill is, having watched just about every 9er game during his career, I wouldnt mind having him if no other option was available.

Shaun Hill career stats:

30 games played, 26 started

13-13 record with 2 bad teams

61.7 completion %     6176 yds     39Tds  23 Ints
