My score prediction for this game... Alabama 24 - Notre Dame 13
Nice "block" by the ref.
****, this ***** is over before it began. Bama up 14-0 and just recovered a fumble on the ND side of the field. Ouch.
Bama all up in ND ass.....early too....like they didn't even ask them their name, just having their way with them.
Am I alone in thinking McCarron has the potential to be a really good QB in the NFL?
This is not at all surprising. Bama is a machine and give them a full month to prepare for a team and they will come out and dominate. ND is the biggest fraud at #1 in a decade.
28-0 at half. Yikes
So is there any way we can get AJ McCarron in a Texans' uniform before Sunday?
I would start with Superman. If he ain't available, then I would consult with Norg.
No, in my mock I argue that we should not take a QB this year and hope he falls to the end of the first next year. He will be a better pro than anybody in college today other than maybe Teddy Bridgewater.
I've watched him 10 games this year and last and he's a very polished QB already. He improved greatly last year to this year and does everything well we ask for in a QB in our offense.
He gets looked at as a game manager because he plays for Alabama, but he has all the physical and mental tools you need to be very successful in the NFL. My favorite thing about him is that he is always pressing the ball down the field, but he does it very smartly. He rarely turns the ball over. He has all the makings of a top tier Qb.
McCarron just made a hell of a throw! At least he's somewhat mobile. Say his potential is better than Schaub. >.<
I agree with this 100 percent. In a different system he could be putting up sick numbers but he's not asked to do that. I honestly don't see him falling out of the top 10 next year. He'd maybe be a late first this year if he were to come out.
Wow. The more Ala dominates ND the more I'm impressed with the Aggies and Manziel.
He would be the first Qb taken if he came out now. With the success the zone read has had in the nfl this year he could fall to the late first if Manziel, Bridgewater, and Mariota all declare. Otherwise he probably goes very early. They all must declare, and if they do, we must find a way to get our new A.J.
It would be between him and Barkley, but McCarron's decision making is head and shoulders above Barkley's. Barkley probably has a slight edge in arm strength while McCarron has the edge in accuracy and pocket presence. They're pretty even in mobility, but I've seen McCarron make more throws on the run than Barkley and he can even get some first downs for you with his feet if need be.
I think McCarron is better than Barkley in all facets of the game, including arm strength. Barkley will probably not be the first Qb taken anyway. My money is on Geno Smith, and maybe Tyler Wilson to go ahead of him. Weather or not they should is another discussion.
