    Jones = Chad Pennington 2002?

    At the risk of making excuses for him, when he came to AL he was sculpted but wayyyy too skinny, so I have read that they told him to drink protein shakes and eat everything he could to try to put on some pounds. Some people can do that and have it all turn into muscle, but that doesn't seem to...

    Jones = Chad Pennington 2002?

    There are certainly parallels between college Drew Brees and Mac Jones in attitude, intelligence, tennis background and footwork, and playing biggest in the biggest college games. That doesn't mean that Jones will reach the heights of Drew Brees, but it is a good ceiling. I guess Kirk Cousins...

    Taking Christian Barmore was a gamble.

    I thought it was quite funny, LOL. I remember my days in a college dorm (although no wild fraternity life like Bluto had), back then I was especially impressed by the orange juice dispenser (free orange juice!!) and the plentiful non-powdered milk, these were luxuries I had definitely not...

    Taking Christian Barmore was a gamble.

    LOL, nope, at least for the football players and other athletes, they are treated like royalty, no food lines like that. There have been a few in the media that have suggested that the best AL teams could beat some of the weakest pro teams. IMHO that is obvious nonsense, 19 and 20 year old kids...

    You made an excellent point, a real professional meal and conditioning plan will be most beneficial. However, the Alabama meal plan is hardly limited to unlimited ice cream. LOL :) Alabama Unveils $15 Million Nutrition Center For Athletes

    Lombardi: New Orleans was trying to get above New England to get Mac Jones

    Actually, the Jets fans had other things to focus on other than Zach Wilson's Mom. This is from Fitzy, I'm afraid the video has a bit of cursing from a Jets fan (about the selection of Mac Jones), so be advised. Despite the cursing, I admit it gave me a bit of a chuckle. :rofl:

    Taking Christian Barmore was a gamble.

    I agree he is a bit meh with his MNF commentary, but most of my experience with him was as a frequent guest on the Paul Finebaum show some years back (8-9 years ago??) when Finebaum hosted his show in Birmingham Alabama and mostly talked about the SEC and especially Alabama and Auburn. That was...

    Taking Christian Barmore was a gamble.

    Deus, there is no question that at Alabama Barmore's role was a designated interior pass rusher and disruptor. Alabama runs a classic 3-4 defense, and in the past (much like the Seymour Patriots) the three linemen maintain gap discipline and attempt to penetrate the pocket (often very...

    Taking Christian Barmore was a gamble.

    Perhaps, but I think "potential head case" is a bit strong. As far as I can tell he never got into any trouble, no DUIs, no bar-room fights, no one game suspensions for violating team rules, and according to Saban himself, no showing up at camp out of shape or off season troubles. According to...

    Taking Christian Barmore was a gamble.

    There has already been some important insight into this subject in the previous Barmore draft thread and furthermore RobertWeathers gave important info in the “Zac Wilson already in trouble thread”. Basically the story is Barmore had some maturity issues and zigging when he was supposed to zag...

    Zach Wilson already in trouble

    Interesting. Well, that certainly doesn’t sound very serious, maybe that sit down with Saban woke him up. After that, future sit-downs with a light hearted guy like BB will be a walk in the park. ;)

    DRAFT Patriots trade up and select DT Christian Barmore

    I'm not not on any Alabama Fan sites (like I am with this one) but I live in AL and follow the Alabama football team fairly closely (just not to the level that I follow the NEP). There are some things about Barmore that look super promising, and some that could be concerning. I'm going to stay...

    Why I think Mac Jones might not start this year

    I think I would make a similar point but in a different way. He will be more prepared for the speed of the game than most rookie QBs simply because he has already played with and against NFL level talent. What I think may be more of an adjustment for him is to learn to throw to receivers that...

    DRAFT Welcome Mac Jones

    Good point. In my mind the shift has not been so much from pocket to running QBs (as you have pointed out, pocket QBs are still the most successful), but from scripted to improvisational QB play. A number of colleges have had tremendous success with "Make Something Out of Nothing" (let's call it...

    DRAFT Welcome Mac Jones

    I think Jones is like a taller, perhaps a little less nimbly Brees. Both super smart, book smart and football smart. In college both played best on the biggest stages. Both were absolutely outstanding tennis players which I think led to their excellent footwork in the pocket. Not only was Jones...

    2021 UDFA Signings Thread

    Ahhhh, I guess that explains things. I knew he played in the National Championship game, I didn’t know about the subsequent injury and rehab, that’s a shame.

    2021 UDFA Signings Thread

    Dylan Moses was a heck of a football player and considered a future first round draft choice a few years ago before his injury. He returned last year to be quite effective if not quite as dynamic, so (this is purely speculation) his medicals must have not gone well for him to undrafted.

    DRAFT Welcome Mac Jones

    Of course the key thing is not his book smarts but his football intelligence, but that seems to really be a strength with him also.

    DRAFT DAY DISCUSSION OFFICIAL 2021 NFL Draft - Day 3 Discussion Thread

    I guess I miss understood you, I thought you were asking if the 5th round had started, and it has. I think they are on the 4th pick in the 5th round (pick number 148 overall).
