    Re: Wake me up please! This can't be possible next year

    Can anyone remember a Bama team that had more talent/depth at the skill positions than next year's team will?

    RB: Yeldon, Fowler, Hart, Drake, Tenpenny, Henry, Jones
    WR: Cooper, Norwood, Christion Jones, White, Bell, Black, Cyrus Jones, Foster
    TE: Howard (who has the versatility to line up in a lot of places, and can flex out wide)

    Good lord!

    Norwood's not gonna get jumped like that. He's come up big too many times.

    Regarding Black... the fact that he is being compared to Cooper (better or otherwise) is still a MAJOR comparison and says a lot about WR depth.

    If our OL is stout next year (we replace 2, possibly 3 AA starters so let's be careful in our assumptions across the line) then our offense will be sickeningly good. The RB corps is insanely impressive (I joked with my brother about the idea of Alabama running the wishbone), and AJ continues to grow more and more as a QB. He has good arm strength and a good touch on the passes.

    Also, don't forget that Lacy might return, depending on his draft projection.
    Honey Badger can take what the Tide gives him and like it.

    Also, the 2013 schedule is very much in our favor. With Auburn, Tennessee, and Arkansas each starting a new head coach, Texas A&M and LSU look like the only regular season threats.

    Still could use more beef on the OL so Tunsil would really help that 2 deep. Also, we need some CBs to really step up. 2012 versions of Belue, Fulton, and Smith won't cut it. I think we'd see some safeties practice at CB.

    Wish we were in on a Milliner/Kirkpatrick typ guy again.

    Geno smith is that guy currently on the team. Humphrey is that guy we are going after.

    When talking about which receivers will see the field first, it will be the ones who can block. You can have the stickiest hands and world-class speed, but if you can't run-block, you won't see the field for Nick Saban.

    That's a big reason why Bell, Ch Jones, and Norwood have secure spots in the rotation. I've seen all of these three, particularly Jones, make key blocks downfield all season.

    He'll be mad about that too when he finds out. Oh well. Whatever it takes to keep Olinemen mean.

Howard may be a liability as a blocker being a true freshman but perhaps we'll see him used like we attempted do with Smelley in 2008: line him up inside on spread formations as a mismatch.
    I have a lot of time for your posts, rgw.

    You sure do know a thing or two about football.

    And Bama football in particular...

    If Fannin can positively direct his fierce intensity, he should or could become a destructive force on the d-line.

    If I remember correctly Milliner wasn't that great either. Give these guys more time. (And a break)
