    I am very fortunate, I live in the Saban era of Alabama football and I love it, more so wonderful that I am a true UGA fan and we now have a man who learned under Nick Saban...our time is coming

    Translation: Fuck everyone, Jalen fucking wins games at the end of the day and he has room to get better. Do you have room to get better? Or are you stuck being mediocre?

      Athletic wise jalen is phenomenal but passing wise he is horrible, he has had 2 years to develop a passing game and still looks as bad as he did when he first started.

    “Calls out reporter” or “Calmly states their intentions??”

  • Derrick Williamson

    why is it when ever someone tells the truth about you bums who can't beat the first and the only thing y'all do is pull the race card . you tell me when you've ever saw a qb only pass the ball 8 times in the first half .! never and the reason they did that is because they would rather have a guy that's Hawaiian then a brother from the states . its funny to me that when you pussies who can't beat us at shit when called on you're bullshit the only thing you know how to do is do the same thing you say that we do and that's pull the race card ! you really are sorry . smh lol

      Derrick Williamson when someone says race card. We know how they really feel. (Stop being a racist) Tua and Jalen are the same color. The NFL has never liked black quarterbacks. Old white people used to not hold it in. They woulxd tell black kids they were too dumb to play the position. Most still believe it.

  • Derrick Williamson
    Derrick Williamson Year ago +1

    did you see the way they only let hurts throw the ball 8 times but they are saying that he struggled . they purposely did that to bring this dude in because they didn't want two diffrent black QB's from the best two teams in the country to win back to back championships period . that's what that is . instead of of a sking why they pulled him in the first place they go to that question to imply he had a bad game . this is bullshit at its finest

      Your not just a racist, your an ignorant racist.Hurts won in 15, Watson in 16. So what your saying has already happened.Tua is Hawaiian & he & Hurts won. That's just in case you start The White Man rants.

      Derrick Williamson what the hell are u saying?.....first off THIS CLIP is waaay before the championship game ....but i'll address your comment... Jalen was pulled because there is NO WAY they would have beaten Gerogia without an effective DOWNFIELD passing game...which Tua is MUCH better at ...its not even close ...a lot of shit in society and sports is race related..... but nothing about this is race related

      @Gabriel Sierralta how the fuck can he be the worst quarterback in the SEC,when he is one of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of Alabama football.DAMN!!!!!!!! And the previous season he had just won SEC player of the year.i don't know if you are a blonde,but you are one dense,dirt dumb bitch!!!!..

    • CandyLover500 islit
      CandyLover500 islit Year ago +2

      Gabriel Sierralta you're right! He definitely is not a good passer but he runs the ball pretty well! With that being said Tua Tagovailoa saved Alabama big time! Cause they wouldn't had came back if Saban kept Hurts in, Tua Tagovailoa deserved to be the MVP he had a great second half!

  • Joseph Mellen

    Haters will be haters. Most, if not all couldn't make a pimple on Jalen's little toe. Alabama players are high achievers in the midst of a majority of mediocrity. The haters would make perfect Leftist Democrat haters, if they aren't already.

  • String Bean Rick James Looking Fool

    These last two games he's shown up passing and you guys keep on talking about how bad Hurts is.

    Y'all act like Jalen is terrible quarterback. He isn't and he is improving. So y'all need to get off him. He has time to improve

    • TideFan Yankee
      TideFan Yankee 9 months ago

      That's OK, the Tide won. But let's not act like everyone "knew" for 100% certain that Tua would start. I'm happy for him and what he brings to the team. I want the Tide to win, no matter who starts. Jalen did play in the Louisville game and Coach Saban went off on a reporter who seemed to want him to throw Jalen under the bus and he wouldn't. It's a long season and a lot can almost did last night if you recall when Tua went down for a time.

    • Foolish Demon

      @TideFan Yankee This also didn't age well. Lol

    • TideFan Yankee
      TideFan Yankee Year ago

      I think everyone's assessment of the QB competition at Bama are more than a little premature. It's not over, but so many have anointed Tua as the starting QB for this coming season. If you all recall, Jalen didn't start in that first game (when he was a true freshman) against SoCal a couple of seasons ago. But he DID finish it. I'm not taking anything away from Tua, he did an outstanding job at the end of the NC game. Jalen just didn't have "it" on that particular night.....hey, it happens. But to think or believe that Jalen is out, and Tua is automatically in because of one half of football is absurd. Coach Nick Saban will play whomever HE thinks will give him the best chance of winning

      4% of college players get drafted into the NFL. Are you addressing them only, or the hundreds more who finish school and get regular jobs? It sounds like you are the one ignoring 96% of the players.

    • Mikevdog
      Mikevdog Year ago +1

      The last I checked, he is a college player. Can't he just do that? Lots of players, in fact less than 1 out of 20 ever make it to the NFL.

    • Zach Miller
      Zach Miller Year ago

      GOLDEN STATE RAIDERS I agree he won’t play a down in the NFL as a quarterback, you are RIGHT. I do think that for Jalen, he should do like Braxton Miller did and move around because he could probably play around slot or running back. He doesn’t suck as a player, just as a quarterback because he doesn’t know how to pass in the pocket and also he keeps his eyes locked on one receiver and when Ridley is not open, he always rolled to the right, never the left. He needs to change his position

      @One Two dude,you are one dirt dumb fuck.jalen hurts did fine his freshman year passing the ball and he did well his 2nd year.the problem is dirt dumb fucks like you from the Alabama scum base.jalen hurts had a passer percentage rating of 73 as a back up last year and threw the ball better than tua.he had one interception in 2017.he greatly improved in 2018 and won the SEC championship game for fucking ungrateful scumbag losers like your fucking comatose ass.he was a 19 year quarterback at the time of this post and fucking fickle fans like you are an epic fucking disgrace.i would like to see your fucking dumb ass try to play quarterback at one of the most high pressure colleges in the quarterback is perfect,but DAMN!!!!!!!the guy only lost one regular season game in two years.he is at the top or near the top of every quarterbacking record at the University of alabama.he won SEC player of the year and freshman of the year. damn!!!!!did the man do anything right in your fucking hypocritical eyes..i guess tua reads elite defenses and passes the ball more to your liking asshole!!!!!!well, guess what dipshit, Jalen hurts has better numbers against top 25 competition than your fucking pineapple Jesus and jalen has led Alabama to the cpf both of tent queen tua's years at the University of Alabama.
      tua played like shit against all top 30 defenses.he took the fucking biggest loss in the saban era,yet I can't seem to find any of your fucking dirt dumb comments critiquing him???????....44-16 bitch!!!!!!.GET YOUR

      Nah, Don, I expect the number one team in the country to have a decent passing attack. Not throwing behind the line scrimmage for passing. You keep bringing up "sophmore" this dude had all season last year AND the offseason to improve, I haven't seen him improve at all. He's still running the same offense with no new throws. You think that's gonna cut it this season? LOL you're in for a rude awakening.
