New Coordinator could be th Equalizer for New Qbs
quote:

Sometimes, love hurts when you lose it. Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts might have to endure some of that this spring. Let’s back this up for a second and explain. For a true freshman, Hurts looked phenomenal during his debut season with the Crimson Tide. He set the single-season rushing record for a quarterback, had more than 3,700 total yards and guided Alabama and its offense to the national championship game. You can’t take away from those accomplishments. At the same time, Hurts had one heck of a supporting cast. And, he wasn’t without flaws.

quote:

A tremendous athlete who could hang with the big boys right away, Hurts didn’t noticeably improve as a passer over the course of 2016. Many of his drop backs turned into a mad-dash scramble toward the sidelines. And as defenses began adjusting to his tendencies and exploiting his weaknesses, Hurts’ numbers dropped.

A nice breakdown of stats

I fully expect it to be an open competition if Tua lives up to the hype

Everyone will be learning at the same time, yes, but a season worth of collegiate experience is going to give Hurts a significant edge regardless.

Hurts most likely will make a big jump as a passer in year 2. Most QBs do. If he doesn't tua looks like a natural, and Mac Jones looks pretty good too. The corn with them is both come from states without the highest levels of competition. Tua though really seems to rise to whatever level of competition he's playing at, so it will at least be an interesting spring.

Mac Jones is from Florida. That's pretty high level competition
