Why Not Sign As Many Crimson Tide As Possible, Especially As Udfa?


Recommended Posts

Those seniors have won 2 titles in 3 years and have one of the best college defenses I've ever seen.

yea I heard someone say tonight it there's talk about it being the best of all time. I imagine that's all the experts will be talking about today.

But some time the skill don't transfer over to the next level, and if this isn't the case then it's usually their poor work ethic that gets them. For example when I was playing in college a lot of the players thought they could just come in and play without putting any work in off the field. Ex. True story. I remember working out with my team and 2 other football players were "bragging" about how lil they did in the weight room and thought they were hot stuff cause they were gettin some playing time. Well if u run a 4.4 that's usually how it works, unil the NFL and everyone at your position runs a 4.4, then it's gonna have to be your work ethic(or something special) that sets u a part. Your 4.3 speed and being 6'6" 220lbs, just won't cut it anymore, ie Matt Jones.

But with that said I get what u were saying they did dominate LSU that's for certain.

I ran Juco track and worked out with the football team many years ago. The best player on the team was a secondary guy and he was probably the weakest guy on the team. I don't know if he didn't try or what, but he He had mad skills and speed and ended up getting a Div I scholarship in the SEC.

Best of all time? Not even close. They shut down Jordan Jefferson and an incompetent Les Miles who's offensive decision making was horrible. I like LSU's defense better than Alabama's, but they are both really good though.

Upshaw, Kirkpatrick would both be interesting. Definitely makes us bigger in areas we lack size. They can play too, which is more important.

Upshaw isn't big for a DE, he's 264 lbs. That's smaller than Freeney in fact. And he probably won't play 4-3 linebacker, he's a pass rusher for Alabama.

He could play SAM in the 4-3 Under... He has rushed with his hand in the dirt and standing... He is still bigger than Mathis...

    • I think Watson will get some kind of suspension. Zeke got 6 games and was never charged for a criminal crime and that was with 1 girl. I still bet it will be 8 games at worse. I originally predicted 8 games once it came out that no criminal charges would be filed. It could still even be a year. It will be interesting to see how this ends.
    • Don't forget this Sunday's game on Fox 59 at 7:30 pm I think!
    • Im sorry I’m responding a little late….   But I took the time to re-view the 25 minute Luck press conference, and the 25 minute conference from Irsay, Ballard and Reich.    Luck says his final decision was made roughly 10-14 days before the announcement, and the execs say they knew 7-10 days ahead and the week leading up to the game was filled with almost daily conversations.  I don’t know where you got that the front office found out “that day.”    I’ve never seen that claim made by anyone else here, and there’s been plenty of mis-information put out there about Luck.    Also….  Luck didn’t participate in any team activities the entire off-season.   Zero in the Spring.   Zero in training camp.  At the presser Ballard talked about the strange off-season saying Luck ended the 2018 season feeling pretty good, then something happened at the Pro Bowl that no one could pin down.  Ankle sprain?   High ankle sprain? Shin?    No one knew.   So the team knew something was up.     Ultimately, Luck did a bad job at his press conference explaining things, and the media did a poor job of getting enough details to write a good story so people could understand.    But I’d add, that no one in the Colts seems angry with Luck.   Not Irsay, or Ballard, or Reich, or players.   No one.    Yet people here think Luck screwed the team.   A guy driven to do the right thing all his life, and yet fans here are convinced he did the wrong thing.   I confess that disappoints me.   It’s as if people never learned anything about Andrew Luck beyond his wins and losses.  I find that sad….  
    • Like most surface fans? Not sure what kind of shot ur trying to take here but okay. As for the points, there aren't really any intelligble ones to respond to. In both instances Wentz gives the ball to the other team at the very end of the game. In both TEN matchups. Also, in those specific plays there were checkdowns available.    Reich kind of took blame for one, saying he shouldn't of called a TE screen so close to the end zone. But I guess i'm just a surface fan, even though I consistently talk on a colts fan forum, frequent multiple other sites where many people post a plethora of uncensored opinions about the colts, attend games frequently, and I understand football more than most casual people.    I don't sit on the board and pretend to speak some scheme specific terminology, but I know what football looks like. And with that being said, it is easy for anyone to see that Wentz consistently put our defense in bad positions, and tried to play hero ball despite not being very good at it.  As for how that applies to this specific thread; I think having a more sensible QB on the roster will make our Oline look a lot better.    Also, as i've stated multiple times, I do recognize our offensive line had issues. However, that doesn't takeaway the reality of 2sprainz and the type of game he wanted to play, even at the cost of his own team.
