    Uhhh....don't think this is gonna happen. We've got some experience at this with the Jones boys - Christian & Cyrus. No sense putting this kind of pressure on him.

    BTW - is Chris still #5?

Also, they probably realize where McCarron wants to put it too. Experience with a pass-catch combo is more than just knowing how they see option route things...it is an almost mental link on things like how they'll run a known route...
    He has been practicing a while - don't remember how long - but I am sure AJ has been throwing these for a few weeks to him now.

    If he hauls one in, he's got to be ready for the hit/attempted strip from a senior SEC defensive back. Going to be rooting for him and crossing my fingers that he's ready. Catch a TD pass in the SEC Championship game in this situation and you are on your way to being a legend.

    Of course, Saban could just be messing with Richt.

    He has been. It's not going to be like they've not done it before. Also, AJ has developed pretty good instincts in "feeling" his receivers' speeds. Brodie could throw it a country mile, but he never could land it in there like AJ can. Anyway, the deep ball doesn't have to connect every time - although it's better if it does. As long as that receiver is five yards behind the nearest, DB, the job is done...

    I just saw on ESPN that Kenny will be out 5-6 weeks which could possibly mean he would be back in time for the BCS game if we are fortunate enough to beat GA. I know you can't say Kenny would absolutely be back but do you burn the shirt on the SEC Championship game only based on this possibility?

    Bell will be able to start "running" in 5-6 weeks. I don't think that necessarily means playing in a game.

    The national championship game is 5 weeks from today. Very unlikely he'll be back.

    Guys he had a rod attached to his tibia - I think 5-6 weeks is minimum recovery time.

    I can't imagine Bell will be anywhere near playing condition for a bowl game.

    Considering he's got a rod in his tibia...I think they'll play it slow and ensure the bone fully heals.

    Exactly - I don't recall the exact timeline but I suspect Saban's 5-6 weeks comment was probably pre-surgery before they knew the full extent of the injury. At this point it is most likely see ya next spring KB unfortunately.

    Semantics, but I would prefer the DB five yards behind the receiver
