    I agree that Mac needs the development......... not sure why he hasnít gotten more

    On the flip side, Brian Robinson has looked very good in mop up duty. I think he could step up some if Najee is out the next two weeks with the ankle.

    I'm just not sure how much development the third team QB is supposed to get on any team, though.

    How many teams out there are seeing their third team QB playing heavy minutes in several games during the course of the season (without injuries to the other QBs forcing that, of course)?

    Considering Mac is the de facto second string QB right now, I think it's pretty obvious he needs reps.

Because he is no better a player today than he was in the spring game, and that is on Saban.

    Saban is the best to ever do it, but he has flaws. This is one of them.
    Not a bad thing but an expected thing. Never been a fan of running up the score late in a game like Spurrier did and Saban does not like it either. Obviously it does not help development at times but showing class is sometimes more important.

    Nope - it is not running up the score if you have your 3rd string QB running the offense. Not even close. Has nothing to do with class.

    Just imagine if he gets to play with less than 9 in the box at the end of the game

    And with the first string offensive line. Robinson is a very talented back that needs reps anyway.

    But that's not the point. He was the 3rd string before last week. Of course he needs the reps now, but you can't put the toothpaste back in the tube.

    But you can let him run the offense and gain valuable experience when he does get in the game. He's played in for games this year (five if you count L8U) and has thrown a total of seven passes. He doesn't appear to be ready to run the offense, and due to Hurts' injury, is now that guy. Tua could hurt his knee just walking to class this week and we'd be (likely) screwed because the coaches haven't allowed Mac to prep as a backup.

    I honestly never understood the complaints about running up the score. A team's resume matters for placement in the playoffs and because the second and third string players need reps, both for development but also to show new recruits they can have playing time. It's not like you're just beating down another team to demoralize them. And, frankly, maybe it even gives them more film to work with.
