    I agree on both games, but also assert that without AJ's game against LSU in 2012 and that amazing drive (AJ to TJ) we don't face ND for the easy win. As I mentioned above, that may have been AJ's finest hour that season with his game against Georgia in the SECCG running a close second. He had the better game against Georgia but the better "moment" against LSU.

    The thing about both of those games is that have something in common.... Nuss put us in those situations because he tried his damndest to get AJ the heisman when had he ran the ball then we win both of those games by double digits. Neither of those games required AJ to be an all star to win until Nuss nearly botched them. Had aj twisted his ankle in either in the first quarter then we probably win with Blake Sims handing off the ball.

    The excess hype for Tua is unfair to him, imo, and mostly because it's based on QB camps and personal evaluations - he has to live up to that hype, actually perform, do it on the field.

    No one is doubting is potential - potential and a dollar buys you a cup of coffee - well, in many places it does.

    Re: Who are your all-time top five Alabama quarterbacks?

    I just want to give another shout out to Harry Gilmer. He has only been mentioned once in four pages and deserves a bit more attention. All-SEC twice, SEC player of the year. He led the nation in TD passes his sophmore year. As a Senior, an All-American and finished his last season undefeated and crushing USC in the Rose Bowl game (the one where they wanted no more SEC teams afterward).

    Terry Davis (awesome wishbone QB)

    I'd list Bart Star but this is based on college playing days.
    Joe Namath
    Kenny Stabler
    A.J. McCarron ? IMO.
    Jalen Hurts
    Tua Tagovailoa

    NOT A SLOUCH IN THE BUNCH.
    Some might question A. J., but he gets my vote the hard way...
    He earned it.

    I'm not saying he belongs in the top five discussion, but to me a forgotten Alabama QB and he didn't pass much but his teams had a heck of a winning record, Richard Todd.

    Re: Who are your all-time top five Alabama quarterbacks?

    I think if we go for the Mt Rushmore of quarterbacks then you would have:

    Joe
    Kenny
    AJ
    Tua


    But if we are going off of overall talent:

    Joe
    Coker
    Blake
    Brodie
    Tua

    I'd leave out Coker, but I like your "talent" list.

    Man, Brodie was such an enigma. He may have had the most gifted "arm" of any QB that ever wore a Bama jersey, but those knees kept us from really finding out what he could do.

    .
    Coker was one of the more talented qbs that Alabama has ever had, but injuries and bad luck prevented him from really doing anything other than winning a championship to cement his legacy.

    Donkey coaching, and probation was probably worse to him than his knees. Its amazing that it took AJ 4 whole years to break his mark. JPW did it in 3 full years of work.

    I guess we'll have to agree to disagree on that. Great athlete, but his arm talent/qb abilities don't rival the most talented qbs Bama ever had in my opinion.
