    From the view of a day, looks like tua will have a starting job. Jalen should move to RB and be a third string qb behind Tua and Jones. Love Jalen though

    Honestly i just want to see both Tua and Hurts get their time on the field to help Bama be successful. That's the most important thing and I am happy Hurts did not leave Bama

    My boy Enos is working with them too??... were talking about a guy who turn Austin Allen /Brandon Allen into the best qbs in the sec especially down the stretch.. Austin Allen even with a bad oline against bama threw for over 300 yards in the 2016 matchup.. this offense was good already last year.. but bamas going be dangerous this year.

    I've said this since his freshman year, Jalen Hurts cannot throw the football. People only started to realize it in the finals a couple months ago versus Georgia in the first half and jumped on the bandwagon when the Alabama "fans" realized they had no shot with Hurts throwing the ball. With that being said, Alabama still made the right decision with sticking with Hurts over Blake Barnett. Barnett looked like a deer in headlights in his start. Lol

    Tua will be the starter. Know that.

    If Tua doesn't start he should transfer. He is simply too good to back up iffy Jalen Hurts. How many more times will Tua have to bail out Nick Saban and Jalen Hurts?
    If Jalen is named the starter that means he has learned how to go through his progressions faster, can read defensive schemes, and can throw accurate passes beyond 10 yards. Also identifying opened receivers without first running with the ball. If not, Tua will have to come in again and bail them out.
    Defensive coordinators know how to play Bama with Jalen Hurts as QB. They simply load eight men in the box defensively and dare Jalen to beat them throwing the ball. They will do the same in 2018 against Jalen. Bama defense may not be able to bail Jalen out like they did in 2017. Bama won in spite of Jalen Hurts.

      I agree, Tua should transfer if he is not the starter, he is by far better than Jalen!

      TheFinalNovaa that’s stupid... how do you expect them to get rhythm and who’s gonna play in the clutch? It’s obvious tua is better... hurts will have to play backup or switch positions.

  • Justin B

    Do any Bama fans realize that Tua is the better qb here??? Do you guys understand that without him, you wouldn’t have won the natty??? If Tua doesn’t start this year, he may as well transfer... Tell me how Jalen is better???

    Jalen has had 2 full years under him, if he can't throw by now then he's not getting any better in the pass game lmao for all you saying maybe he will improve lol Na he's already the best passer he's able to be

      +Wes M lmao it has nothing to do with hating..... Jalen is a great athlete and I hope we find a way to get him on the field, but hes a below average quarterback.... people see that 24-2 record and think jalen was responsible for that.... we won those games in spite of jalen, hell 2016 we could have won the majority of them on defensive and special teams tds alone...jalen didn't make many mistakes because of his inability to read defenses and his refusal to throw the ball until after someone is wide open, which led to an absurdly high number of three and outs that most teams couldn't have recovered from.... only a casual football fan who really knows nothing about the game would think this QB "competition" is going to be close.... jalen is a GREAT athlete but a below average quarterback.... hell Calvin Ridley wouldn't have been a first round pick last night if it wasn't for his freshman year with Coker (who's just an average qb himself) because no one would really know what he's capable of

    • Lui Fuga

      I agree 100% he's going on his 3rd year but these fans keep saying these ridiculous excuses why Hurts can't pass bcuz he still learning. Wow, I guess Tebow and Kapershit should still be in the league bcuz their almost there with there passing game. Just a lil tuneup on their passing mechanics smh. Hurt doesn't have it in him, passing IQ he lacks.

      I totally agree. If you start 28 games and still can't hit a wide open receiver, or go through your progressions, or read defenses, or have (at least) half decent timing... you are no quarterback. And Jalen is worse at all those things than every starting qb in the SEC. People who think otherwise obviously know nothing about football.

      steve edwards being a starting quarterback at Alabama doesn't mean u just have to throw the ball it's more to that if u know Alabama football and a die hard fan u know Alabama NEVER been a passing team period our run game always opened up the passing. Ok just name one quarterback in the last 10 years that was an awesome QB and went pro and did sum in the NFL I'll wait. This spread shit is all new with these new coordinators every year it's complicating or did everybody forget the whole offense with all these retarded screens and designed runs for Jalen that was so easy to read hell I could of tackled him from the house

    • Dill Berger
      Dill Berger Year ago

      steve edwards As a Bama fan I’m very split on who should start
      Jalen has been my favorite for the past 2 years now and I love how poised he is at certain moments (Miss st) and his leadership and maturity is also great
      But Tua is also poised and has good leadership and maturity and definitely isn’t afraid of passing the ball downfield and can read defenses like the national championship
      I want to see what both QB’s can do on the spring game and I hope nothing but the best of them

      Check the stats and then tell me who starts.
      Passing stats
      jalen comp % 60.5
      Tua comp % 63.6
      Jalen yds / att 8.38
      Tua yds / att 8.3
      Jalen TDs 17
      Tua TDs 11 (36)
      Att / TD 15
      Att / TD 7
      Jalen INT 1
      Tua INT 2 (6)
      Jalen fumbles 3
      Tua fumbles 0 (0)
      Jalen QBR 152.10
      Tua QBR 174.97
      Rushing stats

      Jalen yards 865
      Tua yards 133
      Jalen avg yds 5.6
      Tua avg yds 4.93
      Jalen TDs 8
      Tua TDs 2 (11)

      Jalen threw 3.32 passes to Tua 1. The numbers in ( ) are projecting Tua's numbers out to the same number of throws. Jalen ran 5.7 times to Tua 1. The numbers in ( ) are projecting Tua numbers out to the same number of runs.
      Just thought some actual numbers might help the debate.
      My thought is I'll take 2 additional turnovers for 28 more TDs.

    • Jonathan Beeler

      They stop Jalen because he lacks the ability to do anything a qb should be able to do. This has been proven time and again. Jalen just plain sucks. If you think he's better than Tua, you're on some really strong drugs. We're comparing a qb with every tool to be an NFL starter vs Jalen who will never make it to an NFL team, even as a backup. He just plain sucks.

    • Dae Bruh
      Dae Bruh Year ago

      kd Thomas jalen is a better QB for bama overall imo. The thing about tua is, he only looked so good because the gameplan wasn’t to stop him , it was to stop Jalen. So when tua gets in , everyone is shocked and playing differently because they don’t know what to expect.

    • MrKjdaman
      MrKjdaman Year ago +1

      They’ll run a 2qb system Tua is definitely the better passing qb but to be honest if Jalen can hone his throwing skills which he can throw unlike Tua he cares about what nick wants he scared to make a mistake and which Tua doesn’t care because he believes in his ability nick saban said himself Tua wouldn’t have passed the ball after that sack if he would have gotten to him before the snap

    If or when Jalen realises he can throw it as good as anyone look out ! ...
    They all look like they ready to play .. Tua Tagovailoa watching his release his stance just his whole demeanor he just looks like he could play on the next level period

    • kenisha harris
      kenisha harris Year ago

      John May Jalen knows he can throw if u watching and see he still has the strongest arm on the team u can't blame him for all them damn designed runs the offense coordinator had for him cuz that was his excape route but when u shut the run down and make him pass it's obvious and u become one dimensional looking to one star receiver and that's Calvin Ridley and teams watch footage and do their homework. Not all Jalens fault and Tua has better footwork than Jalen that's why he was able to get sum of those passes off . Jalen just need to work on that and his mechanics and he's the stater bet

      Dae Bruh he has a running capability that causes a hesitation in his passing game
      Auburn exposed that by shutting down the run and dared him to pass Georgia followed suit. When they balance his talents. I think Tua would have beaten Auburn

      Billy Blanks Year ago

      CrimsonTide Hurts ain't starting another game at BAMA buddy, just except it! This is TUA's team and he led his team to a National Title. Hurts not even on his best day could ever make that overtime winning dime of a throw that Tua did to win this game.
