Champions of The Round Table

When it comes to key players, Greg McElroy fills the one position that Alabama can not afford to lose.

Greg McElroy is one of the smartest athletes on the field, and he is undefeated as a starter (including high school).

Some sources are reporting that AJ McCarron is going to be the best QB that the Crimson Tide has ever seen, and he is going to break every school record; however, I have my doubts about his ability to lead.

Alabama is seeking back to back national titles, and already has a lot to prove on defense. We know that the Tide runs deep with running backs, and it appears that quarterbacks are following that trend, but McCarron is simply not ready to take this team to the top.

McElroy has proven himself as a leader and has earned the respect of the entire team and coaches.

McCarron, although previewed as a great QB, is still waiting in the wings. If, God forbid, something were to happen to Greg McElroy, AJ would have to
step into some pretty big shoes.

AJ McCarron would then have to earn his team's trust; this does not happen over night. Additionally, he would have to show no fear as a leader, and not be afraid to make game changing decisions.

Call it luck, but there is a lot to be said for any QB who can go undefeated in his
career.

Greg McElroy knows the playbook inside and out. He makes smart decisions under pressure, and he is a natural born leader.

Don't get me wrong, I am excited to see what AJ McCarron will bring to the table. But, he can wait.

The bottom line is, if McElroy goes down, the Tide's season goes with him.

Sorry I don't have more to say, but this one is pretty black and white in my opinion. I always say, expect the best, plan for the worst. 

If the time comes, I hope AJ will be ready.

 

Signing off and Roll Tide,

Derek Smith

I put this story up because I for one don't believe all of what it says. I do believe A.J. can run this team well. I do not think he has the playing time to be like G-Mac right now. But he does know the playbook & probably a little more talent. So I put it up to see what you guys think. So lets start the debate!

Bla! Bla! Bla! McElroy! Bla! Bla! Bla! AJ.
Having said that, Derek where do you buy your cigarates at? Down on the Block? I think you been smoking some of that lefthanded stuff that comes from Columbia. If Gmac were to get hurt, and God forbid that happen. AJ could and would come in and run the offense as well or better. I will go as far as to say if Gmac stumps his toe real hard and has to set out a game or two, he never gets off the pine again this year. If AJ was not that good Saban would have never recruited him in the first place. Derek you have effectivly joined the ranks of the nay sayers. As you crawl out on that limb you should look behind you while AJ saws it off and you bust your arse.

Derek,

You're on target! G-Mac is a proven entity, intelligent, a good leader, and more than adequate skills. Let's be honest, four (only 4) interceptions over the course of a 14-game season is phenominal. He makes good decisions. I personally prefer a proven good decision maker to an inproven strong arm. I too think A J will be a great quarterback, I just hope he doesn't have to prove it in 2010.

Derek,you could'nt be more wrong about
A.J.I hope we never have to find out,
but if Gmack goes down,Bama will never
miss a beat..I would be as comfortable
with A.J. as with Gmack!Bama has one
of the best quarter back situations in
the country!!

I agree that G-mac is the man. I just don't agree with the A.J. part of the story. I think he proved well at the A-day game against the #1 Bama D. Think what this young man could do with the 1st Offense. The #1 Bama D that A.J. went up against is going to be one of the best in the country this year. That in it's self says alot about A.J.! I know they couldn't hit him, but his game play was awesome & he did win that game. If practice is where it starts, then I would say he is more then ready to take over. I don't want G-Mac to go down & I hope he has another great season like last year. But A.J. his hot on his heels if he doesn't. I like Greg just as much & he did lead us to the NC & he is a very smart guy. He will be the man as long as he keeps doing what he has done. Goodluck to Greg & A.J. this year & I think as long as we are Bama fans, we will love them both as our QBs. A.J. will get his chance soon enough as will Sims.
