    UGA has a chance to pull the upset if they can control the T.O.P but if they try and get into a shootout, it won't go well. I've made my predictions. -

      @CheckmateGamer "Oh, but it wasn't loud in Death Valley when the Dawgs played there LOL. You just made my argument for me." It was loud in Death Valley when Bama won there 29-0 a month ago too. So you might wanna re-think your argument.

    • Randy Jordan
      Randy Jordan 6 months ago

      @CheckmateGamer Bama lost AT Auburn, which had a very loud and hostile crowd. Bama's offense had trouble hearing the signals. This game against Georgia is in neutral Atlanta, where Bama beat Georgia just 11 months ago. Georgia's defense isn't nearly as good this year, and Bama's offense is obviously better. Tua led Bama to 26 points in one half and two snaps in OT last year. I see no reason why they can't repeat that tomorrow.

      He should be a backup QB but also work on WR skills since he could be a commodity in the pro ranks as a multipurpose player. If he's too arrogant to play any other position besides QB- like Tebow- then he too will be out of football...

      @William Benson As an Iowa fan, I can't help but wonder if Georgia is overrated. Other than the Gators, who have they beat? They got smashed at LSU, a team you guys steamrolled. Alabama could (but not necessarily) BOMB Georgia. If that happens, 42-24 might be generous. I'm thinking like 49-10.

      Solid State 6 months ago

      @Tommy K I stand corrected on Steve's speed.... no, didn' t take the time to google 40 times. see the (dunno part)
      I'm old enough to have watched Joe Montana play. Not that it matters.
      My real point was that I cannot think of a QB that was good-to excellent in all categories, Steve Young was the closest QB I could think of. Steve Young is faster by two tenths of second, great. Most QB's excelling in one area, usually aren't very good in others. The cerebral part (and accuracy, before ya get me on that) of Peyton Manning's game negated his cinder blocks for feet. Vick's speed, allusiveness, quickness, arm strength, often negated the fact he didn't take the time to learn a playbook or study defenses.
      I wasn't implying Tua was a better complete package than Young, I was merely stating I cannot think of a QB (other than Steve Young, maybe, perhaps, possibly there is someone I am forgetting) who is "very good to excellent" in all areas.

    • Tommy K
      Tommy K 6 months ago

      @Solid State how old are you? Did you watch Steve young play? He ran a 4.5 40 in college and was faster than Jerry rice everytime they raced during the off-season. After young it's Vick level of 4.4. I doubt tua breaks 4.7

    • Solid State
      Solid State 6 months ago

      Tommy K I’m strictly speaking of “skill sets” not his accomplishments.Don’t worry, I don’t think Tua is gonna be scrolling through the comment sections on RU-clip and get a big head from reading my comment. He has played a whole year now, I think it’s ok to access his skill sets.

    • Tommy K
      Tommy K 6 months ago

      @Solid State let's pump the breaks a lil. Steve young is a the NFL

    • Solid State
      Solid State 6 months ago +1

      @John Dillinger They have been saying this for years. The problem is ya almost need a perfect QB. Ya'll have one now, which is the only reason I think Bama is airing it out like it is. I don't believe Coach Saban was very comfortable with the idea at first, but he knows what Tua is. Tua is an oddity beyond comparison. Seriously, who would you compare him to? Most Qb's who are as mobile either can't pass or can't/won't comprehend a playbook. (not very smart). Tua appears to possess all of the perfect attributes. The perfect QB in my book. How many of these have we ever seen? The closest I can think of is Steve Young and he wasn't half as fast and mobile. Dunno.
      My point is, a dominant running game with a slightly mobile, accurate QB , and a defense will win 9 out 10 national championships. Bama is making history now, but that's only because of Tua. Tua makes Bama look like Oklahoma with an SEC defense. Good luck to ya'll

    • Randy Jordan
      Randy Jordan 6 months ago +1

      @Paul K Bama rushes for almost 200 yards per game. They pass more than they run this year because they have a gifted QB and receivers, not because they can't run.

    • CheckmateGamer
      CheckmateGamer 6 months ago

      @Alex Harrison I think its because we don't really try to rush the passer often. We focus on stopping the explosive plays rather than rushing the passer. I think we will see what GA can do this weekend when they put their efforts into a good pass rush defense. Because it is a MUST if we are to win.

    • Merlin's Wand
      Merlin's Wand 6 months ago

      Paul K It’s called balance. They get the yards they need so they can throw the ball downfield, plus it saves your running backs. Defenses must account for that, cause they could explode on any play pass or run.

    • taylor mickens
      taylor mickens 6 months ago

      I think Jalens true talent may be 20 years down the road as a head coach, he may do better in the NFL than many predict as well "I could see him being a 2nd/3rd string QB, Corner, RB, Saftey kind of fill all position with such limited rosters as well".
