    I honestly have doubts that either ever start here.

    Mac will be the #2 this year. After this year, our QB of the future will be here (if we can hold on to him).

    I think Taulia might be caught up in a storm of expectations, which could work against him.

    Tyson is the one I'm most intrigued with right now. Maybe it's because we just saw Trevor Lawrence, but Tyson is build much like him. With Tyson, it'll depend what he brings "between the ears" as he adjusts from a Gus type offense to ours. Physically, however, he may be the best built QB we've ever had on campus.

    *Tyson will have expectations too, being the grandson of you know who, but Taulia's sitation hits a little closer to home with Tua being his older brother.

    Mac will definitely be #2. Mac is a better quarterback than some here realize. The problem is, when Bama has Tua and Jalen, you don't play much. But Mac can hold his own. He doesn't have the arm strength of Tua or Jalen, but he can pass. I have complete confidence in Mac.

    Throw in the fact that he's a returning starter on 'Bama's celebrated fake FG unit, and he's convincingly earned every bit of that confidence

    SEC play looked (way) too fast for Mac last year, even as the proverbial mop-up game manager QB, but maybe his third year is the charm for getting on the field as a little more qualified No. 2.

    This is the young man I was talking about in my post. Hope we can hold on to him. Big kid, strong arm, quick release. Lot of potential.

    I thought he handed off pretty quickly most of the time. Itís tougher to fully judge his 7 pass attempts however.

    The only question regarding Tua is how the change of coordinator will affect his growth and his ability to make better post-snap reads. Feel free to discuss this.

    The bigger question in my mind is who will emerge as the #2 after spring and fall camp. Not only will he probably get plenty of PT next year, but he'll also likely emerge as the heir-apparent going into next year's off season.

    I know Taulia is going to be likely considered the front-runner, but I think Tyson is going to be hard to stay in front of. I love his big-body and sneeky athleticism. I'm also uncertain about Taulia's shoulder rehap and even if he'll go thru spring workouts.

    FWIW, I wouldn't be shocked to see them both get fair amounts of PT next year possibly within the 4 game redshirt limit or even beyond to set up an epic battle for 2020.

    EDIT: Forgot about Mac Jones...where does he fit in? Does he get lost in the shuffle? Are Taulia and Tyson guys with a higher ceiling?
    I would guess in game #1 that Mac will be the #2 QB.
    That could change after a couple of games, depending on how well Paul and Taulia pick up on how we play. Last year at A-day Mac looked better than he did the rest of the year.
    One reason: Mac didn't have the starting receivers and starting line in front of him...
    I've watched Taulia and Paul, and IMO they both have a higher upside than Mac.
    Time will tell. Wasn't long ago we had a QB look great at A-day, Didn't make #1, and transferred out ASAP.

    If this last year only taught us one thing it should be that Injuries can put #2 on the field in one play. I don't know if we can keep all of our Qbs, but we really really need two or three, this coming season. I know young guys can get impatient, but we have had Qb's enter the Twilight Zone when they left our team...

    How important is Mac's (or anyone's) time in the system since we'll have pretty much a complete new offensive staff? Seems like that would make it easier for one of the younger guys to make a move.

    It is not just time is a specific system, but time spent with a real QB coach. Learning to move around in the pocket, step into passes, where/how to hold the ball as you make your reads, how to get the ball out quickly when you decide where to go with it - there are a ton of mechanical things that you learn when you get to this level. Until you do them over and over again, you have to think about them to get them right. You don't want your QB thinking about them when he is practicing plays, much less in a game.

    Even with Sark as OC, many plays will remain the same. Knowing those plays and the progressions, and having actually gone through the progressions helps Mac. Knowing where everyone is supposed to line up, and how to move them around before the snap is very important. But you are right - aside form the mechanics, the new plays will be new to everyone, including Tua.

    I agree with B1G on Mac Jones. As for Taulia and Tyson, one will transfer sometime in the next two years, unfortunately it is the way things are in CFB.

    I hope he develops into a great QB for Bama, but that video doesn't impress me
