OT: Shaun Hill

Is it me, or does it all the sudden seem like Shaun Hill could kick some serious ass if given a decent shot at the starting QB slot?  It's still the 3rd quarter, and he's already out-performed anything both Alex Smith and Trent Dilfer have done all year.  That, and this is is first career start.  Last week, when he sub'd for Trent Dilfer, he completed 22 of 27, which is the best completion percentage for any QB in his first game in about 40 years.  I know I'm compleeeeetly over-excited about him, but does anyone else feel like he could be our next Steve Young if he gets another decent WR or two?  Or is it just that he'll seem like it to us because he's not Smith or Dilfer?  Seriously, how did this guy not get any playing time at all for his first 5 seasons?  Oh, and if he does outshine Dilfer and earns the starting slot, it might mean the end of Smith.  Sorry if this seems like complete over-excitement to all of you, but 200+ yard passing performances by the QB just don't happen too often for the Niners...Except for that one time against the Cardinals a few weeks ago, but shut up nobody asked you...
