    Who in your opinion is the best player on the field so far this year?

    I think a lot will say Jalen, which makes sense and is legit, but I'm going with Calvin Ridley. He has just dominated his position, game in and game out. He only got 5 recorded touches against MSU but he got 172 yards! A lot if those yards were after the catch. Then he also drew a DPI on a critical play. Then he wasn't even credited with the sweet sideline catch where he stepped OB. We have talent all over so I could see a couple different answers, but to me CR is the difference in so many situations. I feel like he'd get my vote for MVP.

    Hurts. After what happened last weekend there’s no doubt.

    Jalen - no close second, IMO

    Minkah.

    Jalen's been great and over the last few weeks has really shown tremendous growth that many of us were hoping to see this season. If we were only talking offense, he's the man, no doubt.

    That said, Minkah is a once in a lifetime type player and doing all the things we ask him to do, and being able to do them at the level he does. We can put him at any of the spots in the backfield and he's the best guy at it. Players just don't do that...

    Ridley, Harris, and Minkah all have good arguments. But, the way Hurts has played the last 2 games makes him the answer IMO. The 2 biggest games we have had since FSU and he won them both.

    Hurts -- but only because he has the ball in his hands every play. Minkah, Damien, and Ridley are right up there with him.

    Gosh this team is talented and hard working...I pray losing our LB's doesn't keep them from the playoffs.

    Jalen on O, Minkah on D.


    I love Calvin Ridley, he's one of my favorite all-time players at Alabama but......Calvin can't really do anything until JALEN gets the ball to him.

    Minkah. For all the obvious reasons.

    Very good points but when I think back to '14, does Blake Sims get all those yards without Amari? Maybe someone could make the case that if not Amari, then someone would have gotten at least half of those yards for Blake.

    But yeah this season, it's Jalen. He has the "it" factor. no doubt.
