Coach Mike Singletary might wait until Thursday before deciding on a starting quarterback for the 49ers' exhibition opener against Denver.
Shaun Hill or Alex Smith? Alex Smith or Shaun Hill? The two have been fairly even through the first 10 days of training camp, and both should get plenty of chances against the Broncos on Friday night.
Singletary plans to keep the competition going through the third preseason game Aug. 29 at Dallas, naming a starter soon after that game. No surprise, both QBs have said they expect to win the job.
Hill went 5-3 last season after being named the starter midway through the year. Smith missed all the 2008 season after re-injuring his surgically repaired right shoulder in practice three days before the season opener.
