He is as accurate as any quarterback in the league. The smartest thing for us to do is not to take all of training camp and just throw it out and say, 'We're going to go to the shotgun.'"

"I think if you ask my guys, I don't think you would get that. I think the No. 1 thing that I am about is relationships. I am all about relationships. You can scream, you can yell, you can be a nice guy, you can do all those things. You can have all types of styles. But if you don't have a relationship with those players, it doesn't matter. It's not going to work."

49ers | Smith gaining ground on Hill

Wed, 17 Jun 2009 08:01:51 -0700

Matthew Barrows, of the Sacramento Bee, reports San Francisco 49ers QB Alex D. Smith has been throwing the ball well in offseason workouts and is gaining confidence in his abilities. As a result, there appears to be a legitimate quarterback competition between Smith and QB Shaun Hill. "Well, I think the playing field is level now," head coach Mike Singletary said of the competition. "I think before the offseason began, I wasn't really sure where Alex was. You know, he's been through a lot in four years. I think in order for he and Shaun to compete on level ground, he had to get healthy, he had to get his mind focused, I think he had to let go of some of the bitterness that happened to him, some of the bad things, and get the bad taste out of his mouth and be ready to go. I think that has happened." Singletary, however, did reiterate that if the season were to begin tomorrow, Hill would be the starter.
