As efficient as the next guy

Fine line between a Heisman Trophy winner and a former walk-on…

Maybe the discussion should be more about the offensive coordinators than the quarterbacks, you know?

    Sure. But Young only had Williams and Metchie for 162 of those drives.

    The stat line might even be better if you consider that SBIV had very little garbage time stats vs Bama running up the stats in garbage time.

  3. Bennett is our man, the only comparison that matters is to anyone on the bench that could step up in his place. Other teams have too many variables to make fair comparisons…I’m focused on men in Red and Black.

    Coach Monken needs to be PAID.
    I know he just got a new contract, but go ahead an increase that.

    Your question is spot on.

    Monken is doing more with less. And he is asking far less of his qb to get it done. Consistently setting up one on ones and wide ass open, one receiver reads, ain’t easy to do.

    Its sorta the difference between what Mullen and Urban required of Tebow at QB vs. what CMR/Bobo would put on Murray or Stafford.

    Its really two separate universes. But just win baby.

      It’s really what all this talk boils down to. I said the same yesterday, every OC in the country has the same task, draw up plays that your players can execute.

      In our case, Monken has coached Stet to be very effective (and did it on the fly during the season last year), just as effective as the heisman winner.

    “Perception is reality.” That attitude can certainly hold a fellow back. But it can’t erase the National Champion trophy or the MVP award.

    And except for a small handful of plays, Bennett’s numbers were accomplished with his best WR (Pickens) out ALL SEASON.

    Georgia will never win a championship with Stetson Bennett as qb. He doesn’t have the talent.

    Those numbers for Young were with Metchie and Williams being in the majority of the games too. Wow. Does Bama have two first round WRs in the rotation this year? Burton is pretty good but he can’t catch them all and gets the injury bug from time to time.

    Anybody recall Bennett and Young speaking after the NC Title game? They really looked to be about the same height.

    Yeah but, Imagine how great the numbers would be if we would have played JT instead of ol’ shorty. We might’ve even won MORE than a National Championship, Pawwwl.

    Question: if your team is 13-0 and your QB’s stat line looks like this 9.7 ypa 3420 yards, 33 TD 6 Int. what should happen to said QB?


  13. Nil Butron is a Pud

    So the obvious question is “Can Bama win a national title with Bryce Young at quarterback?” Pawwlll I’ll hang up and listen…

  14. Every game we won last year, we won both lines of scrimmage. In the one we lost, we lost both lines of scrimmage. Simple enough. #ManballWinsChampionships

    Replacing their starting RB, LT, and Metchie and Williams with portal transfers says rebuilding doesn’t mean what you think it means. He’s replacing all his skill guys with transfers. Nick better pray somebody doesn’t break Young in half like what happened to Tua or he could start looking at a series on the H&G Channel for Tuscaloosa Tide Floppers.

      Agree. If anything happens to Young and/or Anderson, Nick might have a front row seat to see what a real rebuilding year looks like.

      I always wondered whether our guys’ D in the 2018 SEC Title game was too strong for its own good, so to speak. If only they hadn’t driven Tua out of the game, then they would not have had to try to re-adjust to Hurts. Whether Saban would have pulled him to replace him with Hurts can only be guessed at, but he was in there WELL into the second half.

    If they find out he also emerged from an alley…whew…kiss your life goodbye, friend.
