[quote]The kid is fvcking terrible. Anyone with eyes can see that.[/quote] I know, right. That 5 for 5 garbage against auburn was horse shite. I wanted his scholly pulled after the 5th made FG. And that onside kick against Clemson? If anyone should've ever been beheaded it was Griffith just aft...

[quote]My feelings exactly. Pooper Buttman is an 0-1 loser who will cost us games along with Griffith. Do. Not. Want. [/quote] You and I are polar opposite humans as well as Bama fans. Every player on our team has my utmost respect, no matter how well they play. And Griffith's play dire...

[quote]Coker also annoyed me at times last year, but he was such a tough competitor, that I couldn't say anything.[/quote] Many folks forget the several picks Coker threw last year by launching prayers off his back foot in the first half of the season, mainly because the other parts of his game m...

[quote]How in the hell do we fix that[/quote] Depending on our scruples - air pressure. Other than that, a good mechanics QB coach and numerous reps. However, the most likely solution is to realize that this "problem" likely isn't as significant as many think, likely isn't related to hand s...

[quote]I was screaming "keep the damn ball and run" until I lost my voice[/quote] As was I. But we didn't lose that game because of Bateman. And Bateman didn't lose the job to Coker because he played badly. He lost the job because Coker won the team. IMO, that is what stands in the way of...

[quote]My question is, when did Cornwell become a statue? I thought when we signed him he was decently athletic, certainly functionally mobile in the pocket. To hear it now, he's Bernie Kosar. Personally, if he's the best pocket passer and can make the reads/audibles, give him the keys.[/quote] I...

[quote]His arm strength isn't as bad as some are making it out to be and probably not even an issue.[/quote] No one was making a big deal out of this until a few articles were written by people whose jobs depend on readership. So...Bateman didn't throw a good deep ball in comparison to the bette...

[quote]Didn't know about him not being able to read defenses. [/quote] I wouldn't phrase it like that. I'd phrase it that he too-frequently makes bad decisions about when and where to throw the football. The why is likely related to a few different things. ...

[quote]One of the reasons I am suggesting BB8 is that he is younger[/quote] If this is your reasoning, Hurts is your man. Right now, all evidence points to Hurts being a better overall QB than Barnett. [quote]Last thing about Cooper, why doesn't he run. If that is a huge part of his game woul...

re: "Bateman's arm is the weakest of the Tide' scholarship QBs" - prevatt33
@ no one in particular: The crazy thing to me is, that while I admit Bateman does not throw the deep ball as well as he needs to, how is this a bigger issue than Barnett's throwing it to the other team? Honestly, some of Bateman's best plays at Aday were decisions to throw it into the d@mn sta...

[quote]And the reason his mechanics are breaking down on long throws, is because of his lack of strength to make those throws. That's causing the ball to unravel. If his mechanics were always an issue then he would never throw a spiral. It's just the long throws.[/quote] As a former high school Q...

[quote]BB8 needs to be treated like Sims, always look at lane every play, and do what he says. Until he starts to figure it out at least.[/quote] No offense personally to you, but this is the worst idea I've ever heard. Barnett's problem isn't which play to run, or the pre-snap audibles, whi...
