    If you can dodge a wrench then you can dodge a Bama linebacker.

    This is probably how Johnny is preparing.

    FutBol was compared to Flutie by Coach Saban.

    JF has an uncanny ability to make the right cut on teh fly, and I think he is more dangerous as a runner than Flutie. This game will be a test.

    I agree. Anyone who doesn't think TAMU can give us some fits is putting their heads in the sand. They caught far more healthy and rested LSU and Florida teams, they're getting us in the most ideal spot in the schedule if you're an upset minded team.

He has thrown some pretty dumb INT's in several games I've watched. I liked what Pollack had to say on BCS countdown last night. He wasn't really concerned about Bama's pass defense. He thought Mettenberger and the LSU receivers played NFL level for one night. If a team has to do that to pass on Bama most teams won't have success, and the odds of some of those catches and throws happening two weeks in a row are small.
    LSU did have two weeks to rest up and come up with their scheme. Pretty good one too,
    but a banged up Alabama just kept on, keeping on, and took the game away from them.
    That loss had to hurt LSU pretty bad.
    Guess we find out next year, cause I'm sure our game is already 'Circled'...

    TAMU catches us at a bad time, but I doubt they've got the horses to contest the game till the end. Contain their running game, and put a spy on Johnny Football, would be my choice.

    With a name like "manziel," why isn't this thread named "Johann Fussball?"

    Run a contain pass rush with our front three or four to box him inside and bring pressure from the backers and/or corners.

    Re: How to Stop "Johann FutBol"?

    As others have pointed out, the best-case scenario for Alabama on Saturday is a big day from the running game. Florida and LSU were both fairly one-dimensional on offense at the time that they faced A&M, and they were still fairly effective running the football. I would hope that we hit a season-high for rushing attempts this Saturday. A huge T.O.P. edge with consistently long scoring drives and plenty of rest for our fatigued defense is the safest recipe here.

    Agreed, graydogg. Best thing in the world would be to get the ball first and go on about a 12 play 70 yard TD drive that eats six minutes off the clock. Hope 10 of those are running plays.
