Is Shaun Hill More "Efficient" than Stafford ?

How efficient would Hill be if he were taking first team reps in practice ? How efficient would he be if he were developing chemistry with the likes of CJ, Burleson, Broyles, and Reggie Bush ? The guy is very efficient already, you can basically just throw him in the game cold and the guy moves the offense, and the offense scores points. ( see last years Titans game ).

I think Stafford is a very streaky QB. When he is on, with that gun that he has, he is just phenomenal. Overall however, he has not yet become a QB poster boy for efficiency, nor for helping the whole offense develop any consistent rythym.

This is worrisome. Stafford is in his 5th year. He needs to take this next step in the development of his game or the Lions will have trouble becoming the perennial playoff team that I think they otherwise are capable of becoming.

And this isn't some kind of nit-picky argument. We are talking about total points scored, finishing drives with 7 points, taking a lead in games and having momentum on our side, being able to manage the clock, and also winning the overall time of possession battle which then helps our defense.

Notice that I am not providing any statistics in this post because I am talking about a more comprehensive and intuitive sense of "efficiency" here than just simple passer rating and other hard stats.

I am still in Stafford's corner. He might just be a Brett Favre type of player that needs more time to lose the streaky gunslinger style of play. With the adds to our arsenal like Bush, and the return of Broyles and Burleson, and maybe Pettigrew coming back strong, this might even be the year that Stafford matures into an "efficient" QB.
