But he did make one play. Congrats?


That was a hell of play.....the single greatest play in Bama history other than maybe the Goal Line Stand

re: Negativity towards Tua
I agree maybe the single best play in our history. A team that had prepared for Jalen was not ready for tua. That’s the reason. When people figured out tua couldn’t read coverages and scrambled RIGHT every time he felt the slightest pressure became obvious. He was average against great defenses. If he wasn’t limping around nursing something because he has the bone structure of a 98 year old woman.

That was basically Hurts. Not Tua. That’s why he had so many games with under 150 passing yards.

Jalen scrambled all over. Tua had one out. RIGHT. See where he was every time he got hurt. Running right.

Holy hell.

This is an internet discussion forum. There are going to be people with different opinions and viewpoints than you.

We’ve now got a moderator locking threads discussing legitimate and interesting takes on Alabama football because you can’t scroll past topics and posts with which you disagree.

Grow the frick up, wipe the sand off your bleeding vagina, and stop crying because someone posts something you disagree with.

And moderator, stop catering to this bull shite.

Yeah because a 5 yard scramble on 3rd and 10 when a receiver is running open 20 yards down the field is much better

How about you take a look at Hurts’s 5 playoff performances and see how horrible they each were.

Thank you. Bunch of sunshine pumping bitches in here. Get over it, everyone doesn’t agree with every damn opinion you have. I think tua was a fine quarterback. He had good stats. He had zero grit and tenacity. Dude was a walking glass case ready to be broken at any point.

The fact that he had the longevity to play in 5 settles this debate even further. Dude had grit. Went on to get Oklahoma to one. Should have kept Jalen and let tua sit.

So you’d essentially take a guy that had games like his 50 yard performance against Washington over guys like Tua that led Alabama to a NC.

The fact is Bama wouldn’t have a NC without Tua. And it was certainly more then one play like you keep spouting.

Greg McElroy won a national championship. We going by that logic? Jalen has intangibles. He was simply a better quarterback.

Greg had like 59 yards passing against Texas. He didn’t win Bama that game. Tua was named MVP of his.

You can argue he is much more durable then Tua. But he most definitely not more talented. Period. I don’t think you know what intangibles even are. You’re making the case for the most clueless poster on this board.

re: Negativity towards Tua
He doesn’t have intangibles?? Taking two different teams to playoffs? Adapting to a completely new offense and skill players when he moved on??? Bahahaha okay bud. Tua and Greg are compatible. They both won a national championship. The only difference is one went the entire distance of a season and one couldn’t pull it off. I’ll let you figure that out.

C'mon man that is just a dumb statement.....both years that guy was back on the field leading the team and competing just weeks after surgeries. He played through injuries and showed a lot of toughness and grit.I don't know if he i made of glass or just had some bad luck but heart, toughness, and grit wasn't lacking. The criticism I would have of Tua was he tried to make something happen when it wasn't there and should play smarter and just get rid of the damn ball...... stop sacrificing your body. SEC defenses made him pay for it.

The two years of Tua as a starter were frustrating I agree but the kid was a generational talent and we haven't had that level of talent at QB since the Namath and Stabler days. You get a guy like Tua you have to role with it and build the offense and in effect the team around that guy and we just had some bad luck.

In 2017 Hurts didn’t play well. Threw for barely over 2K yards and you want to give him credit. Yet you don’t want to give Tua credit for the NC win.

This just convinced me you’re a troll. You went from 3 QBs are better then Tua. Then to 4. Now to Greg is about as good as him.

No Greg is not good as him. I’m using his logic. Greg was awful. In order so you can see. AJ. Jalen. Mac. Coker. Tua. Blake. Jp. Greg.

Don’t think you know how to use logic either.

Bama with no Tua equals no NC.

I personally don't share in the contention that Mac is any more gifted as a quarterback than Tua. With that said, do we have to police this contention so rigidly? I much prefer when the contest of ideas is a full-contact sport.

re: Negativity towards Tua
I'm going off stats four games into both of their careers and how both played against UGA. I can post both stats if you want. Tua also benefited from having two more first round WRs.
