Feel more comfortable with Mac than I did with Tua
Sounds weird but man there’s just a certain spin he has on the ball that I feel better with than Tua. Kind of like how I was with Jake Coker. Tua knew the defenses and offense better than most coaches but man was he a stick of dynamite. Some games I feared for my life when I knew our defense was gonna get run over. Having someone that drops back, throws a dart, calls it a day and hands it off in the i next play is something my blood pressure has sorely missed.


I’m also pretty hyped for Bryce Young despite his mistakes. He’s got a nice arm and he’s not scramble prone unless the play really truly has broken down. He has a bright future here.


I’m currently on mobile but did I see Jeffcoat earlier? What’s the other ones name....Jackson? Jackson Jeffcoat? That names popping up in my head for some reason.

Same. I am never at ease with a "dual threat" QB. To me that just means "more likely to get hurt."

Tua wasn't exactly known to throw a lot of interceptions...


Or incompletions for that matter...

It was 35 to 6 when Mac went to the sidelines. What was comforting was watching our offense control the LOS. They controlled the TOP. They stayed balanced and when they wanted to run, they ran. Mac hit everything downfield on time and very accurately. There is nothing to criticize for 3 quarters of this game on offense.

re: Feel more comfortable with Mac than I did with Tua
This is totally going to turn into the football version of "we are better without Sexton." Like, do y'all think Tua was the one calling all those passes? If you want to blame anyone for the lack of a consistent running game blame Locksley and Sark. They were the ones calling the plays. Tua had nothing to do with it outside of being so good that they struggled to justify calling a lot of running plays.

Agreed. Don’t care how man down votes I get. Tua had the poor “me’s” at times. Mac is a baller. Tua is one of my least favorite quarterbacks besides McElroy in the Saban era. Guys like Coker, it’s called the WILL TO WIN!

You’re probably going to get a lot because that is dumb as frick. Tua is ones of the best QB’s Alabama has ever had. He doesn’t have the “will to win” some of y’all are laughable and look like petulant children.

The best because? Stats? Or opinion. AJ is technically the best. Team chemistry was better with AJ, Coker, and even Blake. Tua is a glass house. Every time he was hit you’d be holding your breath. Coker was looking up punish a defender. Do you know what that does for a team?

Technically the best doesn’t make any sense. Tua has better accolades and has far better numbers. AJ is not technically better because he led Bama to one more championship because that’s a team achievement. Tua is also a hell of a lot more talented.

BUT yes Tua is made of glass. He is just one of those talented but often injured guys. It sucks but that was just the way it was and still is with him.

What good is a qb which is made of glass? I mean is that what Bama is built on. Come on. Take off the crimson glasses. We’ve always been a University built on tenacity and grit. I like Tua, nice young man. I don’t miss the drama with his family and him. I don’t miss the grasping of my breath every time a defender closed in. You see those two hits mac TOOK and standing tall and making clutch passes!!! Tua runs that ball every time.

I’m asking you what technically the best even means. I think you don’t know what technically means.

And I’m think I’m one of the least biased posters on this board.

Who, as a quarterback, was able to persevere under pressure. Play the next play. Make it about the team. FIND THE WILL to win. How many times did tua play an entire game and when losing the lead, storm back with his team on his shoulders and gut it out?


I’ll wait......

My eyes. Stats. He’s one of the best qb’s Alabama has had. Do you disagree with that?

Football is a team game. They also didn’t have the shite defense Tua had.

That’s great Tua is still a great qb and one of the best Alabama has had. And nothing you said proves Tua didn’t have a “will to win.” It’s just dumb

And if Tua is one of your least favorite QB’s I just don’t know what to say. When he was healthy he was so fun to watch

He was “stat” great. Never single handedly led a team to a national championship. How many qbs in this nations have killed stats over the last 20 years and haven’t put hardware in the case? He’s a good qb. He just didn’t show great leadership skills.

I love it when people qualify a statement with something like this. You know he did everything you just said in the national championship game, but to fit my argument I’ll add an entire game

Bahahaha he couldn’t handle the pressure and rigor of an entire game. Couldn’t do it. Not against equal competition. Only one he tried, Jalen had to come in and save his ass.

You obviously can’t grasp the fact that football is a team sport.

Like I said, he lacked great leadership. Big boy was it fun watching him scramble wondering if he’d fumble or get killed every hit. ??????
