First, that is a typical slippery slope.
Second, I'd love to know your reaction last year when we lost Waddle. Mike Shula left Tyrone Protho in the game for a meaningless play and caused both him and Tyrone's career at Alabama. Eddie Jackson's loss may cost us a national champion.
Last year we lost Waddle in the middle of the season. Every Smitty's return later gave me a heart attack. I like Jameson's versatility. Yet do we have to put our No.1 receiver into this dangerous situation?
Not to name all close games and try to select only from CNS's era besides the obvious choices we've already mentioned:
2010 Arkansas game: Ryan Mallet was largely unstoppable until the second half. We trail behind 7:20 at a point. And Dre picked off late to seal the 24:20 win. McElroy remains...
If I remember correctly, CNS is pretty accurate when commenting on players' progress.
What I am trying to say is, Paul Tyson, Jalen Milroe and other QBs might also be good and even BY is phenomenal (4TDs), he is just "A little bit“ ahead:)
