We did pass more this year. It may have contributed to our losses.....But if our QB hits a few wide open receivers in those games the pass plays would be excellent calls.
Saban has been recruiting players to make a difference in the passing game since he came to Alabama. The way Alabama runs the ball, the QB needs to hit open receivers, especially when the call is clearly a good one. AJ had a bad game against A&M or we score easy in the early part of that game.
If AJ improves our pass game will be great next year, and we'll need to be balanced so the line doesn't have to block 8 man fronts.
