    What would be your all-time Alabama backfield?

    What would be your all-time Alabama backfield? One quarterback, two running backs (fullback if you so choose). It doesn't mean from the same season, so if you want to have Joe Namath with Shaun Alexander or Bart Starr with Mark Ingram as part of your all-time Alabama backfield, feel free.

    One quarterback, two running backs in your Alabama all-time backfield:

    Tua with Shaun and Eddie Lacy.

    I was going to put Henry on there, but he is better when it's all him. He doesn't do well when his carries are spotty.

    Mine is a little out of the box. I would go Tua, Henry, and David Palmer. The Deuce lined up in the backfield reasonably often. That would be quite a threat coming out of the backfield. Also imagine a toss sweep with Henry leading for Palmer, frightening.

    This would be hard to beat. Maybe go with a power RB like Johnny Davis with Musso and Ingram alternating at TB.
