    No, I don't hate Jalen and no I'm not Tua's dad.

    Good. We don't need another Bama QB's dad in here.

    He also struggles with anticipation (throwing guys open) and I think he has to see a guy get open, but even then he tucks and runs or waits so late the timing is off.

    Until he proves otherwise, I think the gulf is much wider between him and Tua.
    I agree.............his decision making skills under pressure are frustrating. Tuck and run when he could have thrown to a receiver, throwing behind or too short, etc.........

    And how many more throws where the receiver had to break stride, or almost stop and wait (Ridley vs. Mercer)?

    Very good situation to explain for Jalen:

    Why not play both of them? Together.

    I just can't imagine becoming LSU and not capitalizing on talented WRs like these 3. But with Tua...

    I agree this is a good thing for Jalen. Don't think it changes much in our battle except it gives Jalen a chance to play in a few games this year and still have two to play elsewhere, if he chooses.

    I'm really surprised the NCAA didn't limit this rule to true freshmen.

    Alabama's offense has basically been the same in terms of production for almost ten years. There was no real danger of becoming LSU, the scoring and yards have been remarkably consistent. The danger was of becoming a team that didn't have a very strong downfield passing game.

    I meant become LSU in the sense that they had guys like Landry and OBJ and basically wasted their college careers with a poor passing game. I don't want to look back and feel like we did that to Smith, Jeudy and Ruggs

    For certain situations it would work, but a true 2 QB system would take away too many reps from all our playmakers.

    I am from the old school where the RB's run the ball and QB's pass the ball. I like it like that. Why on earth would anyone want to make a running back out of a QB unless the passing game is questionable?

    The 2nd QB in the linked article is typically a decoy, which could work some of the time. I agree that the QB should be a distributor of the ball, especially with all the playmakers we have.

    Lot of running QBs in old school football.
