    The bad news is, these guys will have to fight their way back into a position on the team that saw a national title without their help. In any event, they were all solid players, and I loved watching them.

    Is there anyone else that was injured that's trying to come back this season that may have fallen off the radar due to all the buzz around recruiting? We should always be excited about the incoming prospects, but lets not forget about the guys already on the team, even though the might not have been able to contribute since the early part of the season.
    I didnt, and I'm excited about getting Fowler back...he's a bruiser of a RB, and that I formation was going to be deadly...

    hopefully he comes back full strngth, and we'll see some new twists in the offense with two back sets.

    we're absolutey loaded at WR, and Deandrew just brings some experience with him as well...

    Dee hart hasnt had a chance to show what he can do, and Im hoping, for him as well as us, that this is his season to shine...

    We have some stars waiting to shine for the OL....Arie Kouandjou, Isaac Latua, Ryan Kelly, Brandon Green, Caleb Gulledge, etc...
    I think that some of them will step up...not sure a freshman is going to make the cut here, as its hard to crack the rotation on the line as a true freshman...maybe Tunsil if he comes to Bama...

    Biggest question is how quickly the new linemen will 'gel' together...thats always the biggest question; will they get in step quickly as a unit...

    I haven't forgotten about White and Fowler. I expect them to contribute a lot next year. Fowler may end up with better raw statistics though. There are so many WRs to choose from for McCarron. I kinda expect Cooper to put up 1000 yard season and 3 or maybe 4 other guys get between 300-400 yards.

    Cooper may have to work harder to get his 1000 with the returing WR's.... Chris Black, Kenny Bell, Deandrew White, Kevin Norwood, Christion and Cyrus Jones...and now freshman Robert Foster (He may not contribute this season, since he doesnt get on campus until fall and with the depth ahead of him)...

    this is without a doubt one of the strongest 'groups' of receivers in the nation...

    With a better supporting class, it actually might help AC. He is the type of player that is a deep threat at any time. He very well could average over 80 yards a game just on one play! I see it very unlikely that he doesn't reach the 1000 yard marker, baring injury, next season.

    After watching him this year, I wouldnt doubt him reaching 1000 yards. He'll definitly be the 'marked' receiver next year....so it may open it up for others a bit more. We'll have at least three legitimate, deep ball threats next season. We may well end up having 4 receivers with 700+ yards; better to spread it around to open receivers, and let the defense pick their poison...Thats a good thing.

    No matter how the numbers end up, we'll hvae one deep group of receivers.

    He may be a "marked man" next year, but Cooper isn't going to get much beyond safety help in terms of doubles because the complete receiving corp is so good. You can only do those crazy CB-LB, CB-S, etc bracket coverages when the other guys aren't threats and the QB is young.

    i think having hart back in the punt return game will exponentially help special teams.

    Whereas we have an experienced "game manager" at QB.

    I think Earle was referring to depth at that position. Could be wrong.
