    Im just not going to argue anymore. Its complete insanity to think that a true freshman is going to work over NFL CBs.

      I don't know about that. Chiefs, Jaguars, Cardinals are horrible at attacking through the air. Cards would probably win just because of their defense but I don't see how the Raiders would get off the field against Alabama's ground game. Considering Alabama is on the verge of building the best "college dynasty" in history, it's actually a valid discussion to wonder how they would do against the bottom 5 teams. Anything outside of that though and I'd predict Alabama loses handily.
      A team like the Jaguars would beat the crap out of them physically. Not to mention having all the experience.

        I already said that the Jaguars defense is really good and would most likely contain Alabama. Oakland would be their best match-up in the NFL.

          And they would still dominate the hell out of Alabama.

                Fine, substitute the Raiders in your little scenario and it would be the same result: where the college team gets crushed.

                  If you say so. I just don't get the faith in the Oakland defense that you guys have. Considering the last NFL/College game was 82 years ago, all we can argue is based on hypothetical situations.

                    Yeah, and that was when the NFL was considered inferior to college football. Do you really think things will have suddenly shifted towards college football?

                      I know this topic has been mentioned over and over and people say how the best college team has no chance at beating the worst NFL Team. And you have guys like Mike Golic said it wouldn't even be close. They mentioned how if Alabama faced Jacksonville on a neutral field it was something like Jags -24 as the spread the Jaguars would blow out the Tide.


                      I always hear stuff like of course the NFL Team will win because they have 53 NFL players as the best college team only has maybe 10-11 max and they would never get more than x amount in the 1st round. And also how most of the players on alabama won't even play in the nfl.


                      This is where I get confused. NFL teams draft the best college players starting in the 1st round etc. However, how many players get drafted in the 2nd or 3rd round and become decent nfl players. I could name quite a few. Then you have some nfl players who never got drafted and right now are pretty good such as Victor Cruz who played for UMass yet was never drafted. I mean, how did that happen. Then there are a few guys in the NFL who NEVER played college football.The biggest argument is that nfl players are must stronger and faster than the best college football players. I agree that is true but what about the bottom of the nfl players. People say how even the guys on the practice squad are all good. Yeah thats true but are you guys saying those players would be better than the top players from Alabama? You telling me you rather have a guy drafted in the 5th round from Samford as oppose to a player that is going to be drafted in the 1st round from alabama? The other thing is the great player from Samford probably didn't even play against any tough competition like how a player from Alabama plays against SEC competition. Also, does anyone here agree there are some players in the NFL that shouldn' even be in the NFL?



                      When people talk about how nfl players are much bigger than college players etc and faster. Ummm... they did an article and Alabama's offensive and defensive lines are BIGGER than the Jaguars and the chiefs. So what does that mean then? Also, people talk about how some college players who are very good won't be good at the nfl level because they are too short etc. I kind of laugh when people say he's too short at LB because he's only 6'1. Ummm... isn't Ray Lewis 6'1? Then you hear stuff like some good CB will have hard time to adjust in the nfl level because they are 5-9 to 5-10 and too short. Isn't Brandon Flowers from the chiefs 5'9 only and all pro CB? So isn't he going to have a tough time guarding a 6'2 WR from alabama then because he's 5 inches shorter? I hear so much about how they say certain college players are too short etc and they are not the prototype nfl player such as 6'4-6-5 for a QB, 6'2 for a WR, 6'5 for TE, 6'6 for an offensive linemen and 6'5 for defensive linemen, 6'0 for a CB etc... but in reality isn't it true about half of the starters in the NFL are that prototype?


                      Also, people say Alabama won't even cross the 50 yard line. Anyone here think this is just exaggeration? I mean, shutting out a team like Alabama would be very tough because you can't make any mistake and that includes special teams. I mean, you going to tell me if the Jaguars or Chiefs play an offensive powerhouse like Oregon, Oregon won't score more than 7 points?



                      When you look at the Jaguars. Are you telling me you rather have a guy that was a star in college that isn't that good like southern miss or arizona vs a player from Alabama?
                      The games are vastly different. The biggest adjustment rookies make is how fast the NFL game is. NFL is just a more sophisticated product all the way around. The defensive and offensive schemes are more complex. Skilled position players hold more responsibilities. The players are bigger and stronger. It would be a blow out and no they wouldn't make it to the 50 many times.
                      Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

                        Years ago the NFL pre-season began with the NFL champ agains a group of College all- stars. Once in a while the college kids would win but the Pros would win almost every year. I understand it was a championship team against all stars but almost any pro team would destroy any college team 8-9 times out of 10.

                            Just to be clear in the event there is any confusion: Alabama is the ONLY team I would even entertain to have a chance against an NFL team. Oregon's spread offense is cute and all but their defense would get demolished. I've also mentioned that NFL rules wouldn't give Alabama a chance either because of how defensive back/receiver play works versus college. Using college rules and one of the best college teams in recent years against arguably one of the worst NFL teams...I think it would be a lot closer than you guys expect.

                              Just loooked it up/ It was a series that was played from the mid 1930's till 1975. The pros went 31-9. They played the game at Soldier's Field in Chicago at the start of each year

                                I'm with you Slip. The average receiver takes 3 years to fully adjust to the NFL game, coming out of college.
