    Does anyone find it odd that Tua is on no one’s list?

    If it were “best” players he’d probably be on everyone’s list

    If Will lives up to the hype he's been getting he won't just be in consideration for an All-Saban team, he'll be getting consideration on the all-Bama team across from D. Thomas. We'll see. We also heard Terrell was gonna be unstoppable and go top 3 at worst.

    I have felt conflicted ever since posting my top 5 list, as a top 5 is really just too small of a list of favorites. So I’m adding Eddie J, Javy, Julio, Jon Allen, Dre, and Jalen to round out my top 11.

    Wasn’t it Dalvin who chased Watson across the field and tackled him at like the 2 on a two point conversion play in the 15 title game? Could be misremembering

    I can’t recall but it wouldn’t surprise me. Dude was always where he was supposed to be doing what he was supposed to do. He was just overshadowed by some crazy talent

    Not best or most important, but some of the ones that accomplished huge milestones for us and are/were good ambassadors.

    Q may have been in the top 3 or even the top if he played for one more season. I think he's as dominant as any player we've had and is also likeable, but having really only the one dominant season then leaving as a rSo makes it hard to squeeze him in.

    Here is how I'd rank the QBs of the Saban era. I know a lot of ppl would rank Jalen higher but I think Sims was a better passer as well as Coker. Jalen just could not deal when he faced a good defense and was forced to throw the ball downfield. A lot of his wins came against either bad teams or on the back of his own ridiculously talented team. He was still a very good college QB. It's a pretty close call when you get past AJ and you're picking between Coker, Sims, and Jalen. There are good arguments for any order between those 3.

    (1) Tua
    (2) AJ
    (3) Coker
    (4) Sims
    (5) Jalen
    (6) Mac Jones
    (7) JPW
    (8) MCElroy

    Sucks that Foristall is looking like the top option at TE. He was a liability in blocking last year. Missing assignments or getting pancaked.

    For sure. I had him at 3 initially and probably bumped him down because of that. It's easy to forget how dominant he was in college. Everybody knew he was the best of the two backs on the team, the other being a Heisman winner.

    Quinnerly
    Shackelford
    Petty
    Herb
    Bruner

    ???? Does this seem reasonable?

    That’s probably what we roll out with the first game. We’ve got so much flexibility with this roster tho who knows what we do outside of Quinerly at PG.

    That’s gonna be it. I don’t think we will see anyone average over 15 ppg this year. It’ll be more like 4-6 averaging 10 or more.


    If Oats doesn’t make noise with this team he’s not ever gonna do anything
