    Big A Brady Barking Alabama in his snap count

    I know this is later in the week and excuse me if this has been brought up but it was cool to hear Tom Brady of the Patriots calling out Alabama in his snap count this past weekend. Belichick paying homage to his friend Saban. Pretty cool.

    I also hear various teams call out "Tampa>" I am assuming that they are identifying a type of defensive formation. I just wonder what specific blitz or formation they have associated with us. I'd love to hear them say "Roll Tide."

    This is probably a blitz pickup call since it is repeated by the center every time that I hear him call it. I think he is calling an A gap blitz. A for Alabama.

    I think he's changing the play at the line and "red" is the live color.

    could be just that it means nothing and he is trying to make the defense think it means something.
    Due to the current workload, the light at the end of the tunnel will be temporarily turned off.

    I think he's just pretending to play for Bama.

    Alabama actually can mean a couple of things from what I've gathered. It mostly has to do with the blocking assignments on the offensive line, as B1GTide pointed out.

    It's also tied into the snap count. Alabama, from what one analyst said, means a count of one.

    I'm guessing that it also changes from game to game or else it would tip off the defense.

    Regardless - GO RAVENS!

    They've used the call multiple times throughout the year so, as mentioned, I'm guessing it does have multiple meanings.

    And yeah... GO PATS!
