    Vandy was the eye-opener, but the pass to Ruggs in the UT game was next-level spectacular. That's when I knew he had talents we hadn't seen at Bama in my life time.

    The spin pass against Vandy showed me the first glimpse that Tua was special. It wasn't until he threw the winning TD against UGA, though, that I realized just how special he is. That really was an amazing pass.

    All the answers referring to regular season games are correct but for me it was when he came off the bench in the NC game and led us down the field for a score. In that situation with all the pressure and we are in dire straits against that team? And he’s like Joe Montana out there. I was blown away and have been since.

    National Championship Game. All the stuff before was cute, but THE game? You saw greatness there.

    Same for me. I thought he should've been the starter after this game. And that's not just based on how he played, but based on how the rest of the offense responded when he took the field. As we saw later in the season, the offense seemed juiced when he took the field.

    Still wish he would have come in for the second half against the barn. Would have been priceless to watch them deflate.

    Vandy, first pass. Quickest release that I've ever seen in a Bama QB.

    So which is it - do I protest too much or should he have used blue font?

    Sorry, I'm no padre but even in jest this is over the line for me.

    Y'all continue however you wish within TF.com policies.

    He was looking good in the Vandy game. But I was thinking, well, it's Vandy. When he continued to look good vs the viles, that's when I really started to believe we had someone special.

    His first pass his first A-Day the arm talent was obvious. While some plays during the season indicated he could be quite special, it wasn't until he brought the team back from 2 scores down to win that it became obvious he already was something special.
