re: Is Mac Jones for sure the QB in 2020?? - phil4bama on 9/20/19 at 10:55 pm
Mac will be the man but through no fault of his, it will be an off year for Bama, losing at least 2 games. We become mere mortals next season and everyone will talk about the end of the dynasty. Then they will be shocked into silence when we reload and bitch slap everyone in 2021. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

This game is totally dependent on Mond's play; he's the wild card. If you get Mond, 2018 vs Clemson version, aTm wins going away. If you get Mond, 2019 vs Clemson version, Auburn walks out with the W. He's so unpredictable....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: Does anybody know why there are two bye weeks this year? - phil4bama on 9/16/19 at 10:34 am

re: Defensive philosophy, young players and game management - phil4bama on 9/16/19 at 10:31 am
I think a better approach would be to focus on takeaways. With the current state of our defense, we're not getting many stops between the 20's. They've done a much better job of preventing points in the red zone. For now, I think they should put more emphasis on the second guy to the ball carrier be...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: LaBryan Ray feared lost for the year - phil4bama on 9/16/19 at 10:28 am
Yep, you can have an NFL secondary but if the QB can stand back there long enough, somebody will get open. Our front 7 is currently held together with chicken wire and flour paste. They've got to improve and fast. If not, we're going to continue to struggle on D. We can't stop the run and we can't r...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

I can't wait for the season either. Especially the way the football season is unfolding. By the Iron Bowl, we'll be sending the JV out there on defense. It's a shame, but I fear we are going to be robbed of the opportunity to compete for another title with the GOAT group of Tua and the Four Horsemen...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

I trust Saban to TRY to get it right and do as much as he can with what he's got. Not even the GOAT can take a bunch of 18 year olds and create a rock solid defense overnight. Unfortunately, we've had a series of circumstances that have created some pretty massive adversity. The injuries at key posi...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

No doubt, you keep fighting and next man up, but nobody keeps taking hits like that on your front 7 and it not leave a mark. And with the offenses we still have to face, they are going to get exploited. There's going to be a lot of "Over" games on the back end of our schedule because nobody is stopp...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
