    Re: The All-Saban Alabama Team

    I don't think I could put Vlachos above Caldwell. Caldwell was a consensus All-American,
    Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice? Congratulations, you'd probably make a pretty good con-man.

    I know what you mean. I think if I was picking a team that was going on the field, I'd go with Caldwell because he was the better talent. I just kind of like Vlachos for his scrappy play, and when comparing their careers I went for the guy with the rings. But I can see why you'd go for Caldwell. The O-Line is probably the hardest position group to pick, there's no way you can avoid leaving off either 1st team All-Americans or guys with multiple championships.

    Imagine how tough this question will be once Saban retires!

    Shelley has certainly been an amazing player, but remember he only does the shorter kicks. Perfect on extra points is really hard to do, though, so I give him props for that. But I think if we're going by performance/stats and not just eyeball thoughts, Leigh Tiffin is the better kicker you'd want on your team, since he did short & long kicks and was really good at both.

    I don't think I could really make up a team roster right now, but I agree mostly with the original post's.

    Shelley had a great year but he would have to be able to kick from further out to surpass Leigh...

    I made a list, and it was almost identical to Mack's. Only differences were that I had Mosley over Hightower (largely because Hightower's first year back from injury was a down year), Deaderick over Washington, and Upshaw over Anders.

    Did Washington not have to play NG in Saban's first year? I remember him really struggling in that role. Could be wrong though.

    Shame on you, doubting the Sabanator.

    5 minutes in the time out corner. Go. ;p
    Honey Badger can take what the Tide gives him and like it.

    I'm surprised Colin Peek isn't getting more love at TE. He was one of my favorites when he was here.

    PK- Jeremy Shelley
    Punter- PJ Fitzgerald

    PR- Marquis Maze
    KR- Marquis Maze. A few notes: I put Jesse William at DE, because he played DE on one of the best defenses of all time last year (Chapman was NT). I put CJ as an OLB on my 1st team defense because I think he's versatile enough to play it, and he is too good not to be on the first team. I also have Cyrus at RT on 2nd team, because I couldn't put him above Andre or Carpenter (yet), but I couldn't put Drew Davis on the list and leave him off. I struggled with my 2nd team WR order, because I hated to leave off Hanks, but Norwood's performance in the NC game last year and his performance against LSU and ND this year. I also really hated leaving Glen Coffee off the list, but the 4 RB's on my list were pivotal in bringing home NC's, so I had to go that way.
