But Sims is incapable of throwing down field, if you can't take the top off the coverage you can't run our offense.
GMAC is one of my favorite Bama players of all time, class act, but he couldn't exactly take the top off of anything. He made some plays down the field, but a lot of that was because Julio is a freak of nature. I don't think Sims is the guy, but I think he's going to be given the chance to earn the job. I had Cornwell competing for the job, but with his injury and Coker maybe coming in, I say it's Blake vs Bateman vs Coker vs Del Rio, at least through the Spring and Summer. Come Fall Camp we may be down to two, maybe come the opener we still have all four competing, who knows?
This is a pretty good problem to have, in a way. It develops the loser (Bateman or Del Rio in particular) into a solid backup or future option at Q.
