Bama’s QB is a liability


They were better with game managers

Yep, that's a TD if Hurts didn't woefully underthrow that pass.

Nah, hoping our conference turns into the Big 12 or the Sun belt is a loser mentality

Yes the same conference where their member schools fans think we are the bottom feeders...I've lived in Alabama and now Mississippi....trust me they all think we are waaayyyy below them

If they were running play action and throwing over the top like the bone crusher Bama teams they’d crush Clemson instead of letting them hand around

I agree, but I also agree with Bama making this transition.  Just need to find a reliable passer to go with that defense.

Well, to be fair, since Harley-Gate they are right.  Hopefully, we can change that the next few years.

True!  I still live in Alabama and I love it when both lose because it’s very quiet.

Looking less like defensive excellence as opposed to offensive lack of competence.  But there is still time.  If I can wake up from my nap....

The thing that still seems obvious about this Alabama team is they can't run the ball dominantly like they have in previous seasons.

Because opposing defenses don’t have to honor their passing game anymore.  The run game isn’t the problem.

I don't think it's Hurts, yes he missed a through however Saban is scared and wants to put it on the defense.

Totally disagree.  Hurts is a phenomenal athlete and can get our of trouble with his scrambling skills.  I would take him any day of the week as our QB.  Sure, he makes some bad throws but he also makes plays few others can like the scramble throw to Ridley for the TD.

Well of course we’d take him.  He’d immediately become our best player.  but we ain’t playing for championships.  It’s not the same context.  He’s an unreliable passer and an overall low IQ QB.  He’s not really a dual threat.  He’s mainly a running QB.

He’s the reason Bama lost the NCG last season.  Couldn’t make the throws with any consistency.

I will defend Hurts a bit, though, because I think Bama is still trying to play a low IQ offense in general.  Hurts doesn’t have many opportunities to look down the field to throw.

LSU was just inept in the passing game regardless of the QB.  Miles made Nutt look like an offensive guru.

This game reminds me of last year.  Lower scoring, but Bama’s inability to throw will allow Clemson to slowly come back.  Clemson will more and more play the run to force Hurts to beat them.  Bama’s D will likely wear down.
