Football has been very, very good to us.
In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-
# of Super Bowl victories since 1985:
1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
4-New York Giants!!!!!

We all know you cant project a player off one game. To me, it seems like the Crimson Tide mailed this game in before it started because it wasn't a National Championship game. Thats why I hate bowl games and root for the playoff format. If it isnt the Champ game, its just a consolation prize. Many teams who dominate most the year, just arent up for it. And the ones who know they are a top pick, play not to get hurt.

The NFL will have him for breakfast with that type of play last night.
That's was the type of performance that may have teams looking at him as a RT now.
Alabama players will be overrated. Just the way it is. Not that they are bad players by any means but the coverage they get compared to other prospects hypes them up.
I've been waiting to see McCarron get some pressure in his face to confirm my suspicions of him being pampered behind great OL play. They got to AJ and Bama's level of dominance was just stripped away. He did make a couple of nice scrambles, but for the most part, he looked awful. Just thought I'd bring that up since I had this convo before with Sportzfan about AJ at the next level.
Cyrus K had no answer for Eric Striker's speed off the edge which was very alarming. He got majorly exposed....reminded me of Manti Te'o getting exposed last year against Bama. I think he'll return for another year. He's at 50/50 right now with his decision and that game will damage his stock.
Striker is an interesting guy. Only a true soph, but what a unique skill set. Hes only 6' 220 or so pounds, and not particularly fast. But his timing and patience on blitzes is incredible. He has a ton of short area quickness
