    Ranking the 2012 offense to this point.

    Historically at UA, just how good is this offense? Let's say ND stops the run and we're forced to throw the ball around. If AJ has a great day and throws for 331 yards (unlikely but not inconceivable) and Amari gets 105 of those yards (i would say that's likely), then this becomes the first offense in UA history to have 2 1,000 yard rushers, a 3,000 yard passer, AND a 1,000 yard receiver.

    This is the most talented offense as a whole that I can remember. I say that as a whole. They just work together very well. AJ is not only a good game manager, but has talent and can make plays with his arm as well as his head. The O- line may be the best we've ever had. The running back tandem is very well balanced. Think what this unit would have been like if we hadn't lost Fowler in the beginning of the year.

    What about AJ still getting that and Amari getting that and they still don't stop the run.
    ROLL TIDE!

    If you consider a combination of balance (run vs. pass) and points scored, this year's offense is the best I can recall (35 years of following Bama).
