Place Your Week Two Observations Here
The tempo and energy of the game changed when Hurts came in the game.

Not blaming Hurts, but the offense never had the same tempo, or looked as good as it did the first few series when Tua and the WR's were putting on a clinic.

Coach please don't rotate QB's. Play Tua till he's done, and then let Hurts and Mac have their time.

Tua... muh gawd, what an arm. What an everything.

Najee please stop with the twinkle toes. Plant foot, get up field.

D.Smith is so damn silky smooth.

Leatherwood seems to still be getting adjusted at guard. He has a few whiffs per game so far, but when he gets his hands on someone in the run game he is flat out powerful.

That jones kid that came in to kick has been infected with the Bama kicker virus. Put him in isolation, and ship him to the CDC.

The offensive line didn't look much better than last week. Still need a lot of work there.

Secondary was better, but there were still a lot of receivers running free. Fortunately, like last week, the QB couldn't find them. The Ole Miss game may end up being a track meet.

I'm loving all the offense.

We have a 2 QB system, 1a and 1b. Hurts has improved. I'm cool with it.

Nit pick, but oline had stretches where it wasn't good. No room for backs, and qb pressures. Play calling went blah and predictable in spots.

Secondary and offensive line are going to have some growing pains, but I really like the potential.

Tua's accuracy is unreal. His throw to Kief was great, but on that same drive, he had a quick throw out to Jacobs on 3rd and short that was incredible. His ability to keep drives alive is great. This is now back-to-back weeks Alabama has performed well on 3rd down.

Buvalos should be the kicker from here on out. Missing FG's is already alarming. We don't need to be missing XPs.

Defense concerns me

Not too concerned about the D. We've had some similar performances against teams like Arkansas State in the past. Hell, Colorado State last year put up close to 400 yards on Alabama. Just going to take some time for them to gel.

I was hoping to see more from Jennings though. That Clemson game last year left me hoping that when he came back that he would wreck shite.

The combination of not ultra elite dominant rush stuffage, open lanes for receivers and good not great pass rushing concerns me.

Now, it concerns me in a Alabama way, meaning only against like 3 teams, but that's where we are.

It concerns me about Ole Miss. They have a freaking stable of future NFL receivers.

Agree, but we'll score 70 points if we need to.

Arkansas State will go 9-3 and win the Sun Belt again. We beat them like Arkansas Pine Bluff.

Can't miss xps. OL needs some work and their is a big drop off after the first string defense. I won't mention the two quarterback system

I'll throw in Skyler Delong as a major concern.

You think a 2 QB system will fly versus good defenses? Especially since they’re both dual threat.

We'll stop Ole Miss some. They won't stop a single drive of ours. We'll average 10 yards a play.

The OLine wasn't very good and I felt like we didn't let our QBs get into a rhythm.

Our lack of depth on defense scares me
