LaVar Arrington Makes Case for Steelers, Ravens Making the Playoffs Over Patriots
"Restart the rookie taking the pats to the playoffs. You agree with him patriots. It pains me to do this because so many people are on the positive train of of mack jones. But i just don't see him leading up to the playoffs. I don't see them being a while. If i'm looking at it from a critical critical perspectives Just i think that you can't count out the ravens to win the division for for one. You can't count out the steelers ever because it's just not on the record book. Their their resumes says that they win. under my tomlin. So you can't just write that off and say that the browns are going to be the division chad's it looks like it lines up for that because they have injuries and baltimore. They had age issues in line issues for question in pittsburgh but nonetheless. These are still a big brothers on the block. And until cleveland proves that you'd have to assume that cleveland could be a playoff team but could ultimately slip into being one of those wild card teams as well. So when i look at what what the patriots are going to have to do. In order to qualify. I just i see teams more teams that make more sense to make it to the playoffs this year. Then a rookie led new england patriots team. To look for that people may not be discussing right now. I wrote them down. Or the broncos make sure you pay attention to the broncos. This could be a dark horse team to pay attention to get them way more but an opportunity to make it to the playoffs Oh in a while. Car bid over over the new england patriots.

Has Cam Newton Secured the New England Patriots' Starting QB Job?
"Newton and mack jones strong showing and the patriots preseason win which capped off bill belichick described as a good week finally felt like cam newton. Joe was able to take a little bit more of a strong hold on the grip of the patriots quarterback competition. He looked good in the start. Eight of nine hundred and three yards finish with one touchdowns. One on one touchdown no interceptions. He played three series before. Mac jones the rookie than took over jones first-round pick from alabama was also quite productive in this outing. Thirteen for nine thousand nine hundred forty six yards over four series. He had no touchdowns and no interceptions so all week long. We were talking about houses quarterback competition going to go in new england. Who's going to separate themselves. How are they gonna look now that they actually get to see some competition during the week in practice with those joints against philadelphia. I was reading earlier in the week. Just about how those practices went and that it was jalen hurts of all people who was standing apart of all the quarterbacks that we saw in philadelphia but now with cam newton and mack jones. This makes this one of the more interesting quarterback battles of the preseason because you have an incumbent in cam newton who was played a lot more seasons of professional football than his counterpart mack jones anecdote always feels like bill ballot checks to give him this final shot to prove himself and so far looks like he's off to a pretty good start.
Newton, Jones Star at QB for Patriots in 35-0 Rout of Eagles
"Night's preseason action in the nfl it was an absolute blowout a trouncing. The patriots had a quarterback controversy. But everybody looks good against the eagles. Campbell good mack jones. Look good jalen. Rose what you think about cams performance. I i think if you really you didn't lead a game saying fly. Eagles fly by nothing you saw in that game. I'm happy for cam newton. We talked about the patriots improving their roster this off season we wondered how he will look as a passer. I talked about them primarily being a rush t. They look like a balanced team now again. It's the preseason never overreacted at as alliance fan. I learned first hand. Because i saw rt go undefeated in the preseason go winless that same season. So i'm not going to overreact per se but i was happy for camp. Did he left last night's game with the ability to talk trash to the team. That was getting on him about being. Check down guy practice. I mean can't exactly go deep in this game but he didn't have to and cam looks good but you know who else look. Good matt jones like they seem to. They always say like two quarterbacks. You don't have one. I think the thing is just have two quarterbacks like they might just have to good quarterbacks one rookie they're going to develop and then one season better who's going to be that week one starter this to me after watching last night again. I don't wanna take too much. Wavering preseason game but after watching last night this is cam newton's job until it's not and i think cam newton is successful in. This team wins that he will continue to be the starting quarterback for this team however because the other way i can see mack jones playing this
Mac Jones Gaining Momentum as Eventual Patriots Starting QB
"Do you think about the pat- patriots quarterback battle. And do you think it's possible mack. Jones starts week one. Oh there's no question it's possible. I mean i think if he if he beats him out if he's clearly the better option and camp. Then that's bill belichick will do i. I don't think there's any doubt of it now. He's been saying cam newton starter since draft night When they when they took mack jones. But i think he you know obviously he wants to rookie to have to earn it. They put number fifty on him Mini camps so that that's a sign of that. But yeah i mean i think it's it's entirely possible and i think what you saw was cam newton. You know yeah. I think he's frustrated with the questions. I think he was coming off by. Most accounts was was kind of a tough practice for him And he probably. Here's the steps. I think you know everybody who's been around. Eighteen says that matt jones is closing gap so I'm it's likely the cam. Newton feels the same way and that's probably making him feel some pressure.
Cam Newton vs. Mac Jones: Where Patriots QB Competition Stands
"The other side. I it's a more interesting. Quarterback is a quarterback competition in new england. What is the sense. You get the dynamic between cam. Newton and mack jones. Yes quarterback competition. We can call it that cam. Newton is the starter plated limited amount of time against the washington football team. And then as you mentioned mack jones and it's very important not only to listen to what bill bella checks says but what he does and what he did was put back jones out there with the first team offensive line for a couple of plays at the end of his at the first half against the washington football team and then he had max jones run the two minute drill the no huddle offense and that he did with command and obviously precision and they were very impressed with that but right now what he wants to see what bill belichick wants to see and he said this the other day he to see the whole team but particularly the quarterback play faster react faster execute faster and what better way to do that than enjoying practices with the philadelphia eagles and then a preseason game on thursday night but yes there is a competition and we'll have to see how this goes in the next couple of weeks but my money is on cam. Newton starting the season and mack jones quickly getting up to speed and pushing cam newton for the starting job.
Alabama SEC Football Predictions for 2021
"Feel like discussions of national championship should be perfect segue when we looked to break down the defending champion from season ago and paint. I don't think it'll surprise anybody. When you look at alabama fan duel sportsbook there less than two to one to win the national title there an overwhelming favorite to come out of the sec west at minus four fifty. And when you look at their win total. It's eleven and a half shaded to the younger. Of course we know that the most electric offense that we've seen in tuscaloosa will not bring back a lot of their key. Playmakers nausea harris and of course devante smith taking their talents to the nfl combining for fifty five touchdowns last year. Mack jones get gone of course as well. But it's rare if you're a team in college football you bring in two former. Nfl head coaches and bill. O'brien and doug marrone to help pass the baton to the next heir-apparent embrace young under center. I don't know how much they're actually going to do. Or how much you actually want him to do. Listen nick listen. Nick and hope that they can keep players on the straight narrow that are collecting seven figure paydays at least on the books under an i l. arrangements compared to Bitcoin trust and everything else. They used to collect in the past the one thing with alabama that they've adhered to under this offensive. Change the last few years is that our offense is not changing. If you're coming into the sabin rehab program you're going to adapt to our offense or guys aren't constantly learning new systems and it seemed work but when i look at alabama's dominant they've been with nick. Sabin the only one back to back championships wants it. Feels like with his system. Continuity plays a large role. And that's something alabama's offense that you alluded to just doesn't have this season now. No one's feeling bad for alabama the way they were crew. But you're replacing. Six players drafted in the first twenty four picks five on offense and totally replacing three starters along the line to starting receivers a tight end and a quarterback and it's not just the players four offensive assistance. Four offense of analysts. They've all moved on. So alabama's offense is gonna regress. That is not a question. It's happening the real question for me. Is how large dip.

Final 2021 NFL Draft Quarterback Rankings: Trevor Lawrence and Then What?
"So guys let's start off with the quarterbacks as this is probably the least eventful group especially because we just let mark handle this position group. Because that is his forte his speciality. We don't even really need to go through the ordering or anything specific with this one as we're going to do it the other position groups but the thing that's worth noting is it. Mark was highly reluctant to really go past mack jones and then after thinking it over he threw in kellyn mind. Davis mills kyle. Trask jamie newman. And that was pretty much it so i think we can all agree here that the quarterback class in in this year's nfl draft isn't exactly very good on the back end. There's a lot of really good talent at the top but as we start to push towards the second and third round like we don't even have a third rounder in this group. There's not really a lot of good options now. It doesn't really tier that way. Joe obviously you have the tran said quote unquote time trevor. Lawrence. and then. There's a lot of debate on who that actual second quarterback would be adjusted sales from ohio. State zack wilson from byu. Mac from alabama. It seems like the jets. Presume that zack wilson from byu. And i mean. There's a lot of rumors that three the san francisco forty niners are really all in on mac jones but we'll find that out next thursday. It's gonna be interesting. I mean outside of the top five quarterbacks in legit all five of them could go for the giants would be ideal for the new york giants. That would be absolutely but outside of those five. It's it's kind of a crap shoot between callum on. I'll trask davis mills. Yeah i actually wasn't surprised to of see the look of pain almost on mark's face when he had to we almost twisted his arm into throwing out his like second and fourth round quarterbacks. This is a very top heavy quarterback draft class and part of that could just be the position. Where if you've got a quarterback who is able to be accommodated starter. He's probably going to be a first rounder and probably a high first
Trevor Lawrence Responds to Critics
"Want to transition a little bit of nfl because obviously the next big thing on the nfl draft calendar or on the sports counter really is the nfl draft. And it's kind of crazy because there are so many different narratives that are popping up mack. Jones moving updraft boards justin field potentially moving down draft boards. So narratives going on. And so what. I kinda wanna do. That was a new piece of information that came out today. That really leads to an older piece of information from earlier this week that i want your opinion on and so listen. It's draft season. You hear all sorts of crazy stuff but there was a report out a lengthy report from the athletic earlier today which which which interviewed a bunch of anonymous gm's and coaches and stuff like that and so it said in this athletic report. You told me that justin field was going to be better than trevor lawrence and five years. I would say yes that could happen. That was an anonymous. Gm told that to the athletic. And so i thought that quote was kind of interesting in the context of what happened earlier this week with trevor lawrence. I know you and chris touched on it briefly but for the audience. That hasn't fully heard the quotes. I'll read it really quick robin than i want your response but trevor lawrence of course the presumptive number pick. Since the beginning of time no one has ever debated his place as the best player in this draft. He sat down for a pretty lengthy interview with sports illustrated and he said a few different things where he said. It's hard to explain that. Because i want people to know that i'm passionate about what i do and it's really important to me but i don't have the huge chip on my shoulder that everyone's out to get me and i'm trying to prove everybody wrong. I just don't have that. I can't manufacture that. I don't want to and i think that people mistake debt for not being competitive. I think that's unhealthy to certain extent. He's talking about that chip. Just always thinking that you've got to prove somebody wrong. You've got to do more. You've got to be better

"League. He said or padres. Dr gangi to the best teams in the league. Is there any way any chance that he padres can overtake dodger. During regular season with the west. I mean there's definitely a chance. I mean i don't think the dodgers are gonna win the division by ten games. I think the padres of the second best team in baseball kershaw gets hurt looking vets get her injuries are always the wildcard especially we talk in two teams really close. I think the dodgers starting pitching is a little bit better. And i think the dodgers offense is just a little better and the dodgers have won their world champs. Even before last year they're an experienced launch. One won a lot of ballgames. Padres are inexperienced. They haven't been there yet. So that's another example. Our excuse me another reason why. I would have favored the dodgers but academically changed. I mean you can come out and win triple crown blades. Snell to come out wind. Cy young darvish. You know padres are a good team. The rest of divisions. I'm talking about why. Are you gonna slobbering over fernando ten ts. Why do i think he's right. The why are you nuts slobbering over him. I think he's very player. Nothing you have mentioned as be. It'd be an empty says he couldn't be. I mean darkhorse going to save welby. There's was going to be mvp while you're not loving him as a national san. Juan soto is a little ahead of talks east right now and that doesn't mean i don't like there's another guy in the national league. I absolutely love is ronald junior skies all breeds. He's unbelievable. Those are probably my three favorite young players in baseball belcher. I like him. I don't like much as the other finger but he didn't you. I mean that's a great thing. There's so much talent in baseball. It can be somebody. we're not even talking about. I didn't even recognize it. Forgot was on the dodgers. David price moved into the bullpen. That's when you you know. It's funny when the rich get richer the Riots right where were when you on the post in the offseason. Was you know the padres made the playoffs last year. And then they got shown by the dodgers in the playoffs. You're not ready and you don't have the pitching we're gonna mash chris. Paddack is a nice arm. He's not going to be the case when you're looking at the dodgers so they went out they got yu darvish and they went out and got blazed snell you got a former cy young winner of their own and that you're looking at that staff and you're like wow they compete so doctor said okay all night twelve dollar. La dodger beer got trevor bauer. There's no doubt in my mind. The dodgers made that sign. They didn't need it. They made that sign because they saw the padres were doing so. They said we're going to help you and that we are. Trevor bauer when you look at that rotation with kershaw bueller and bauer and then At the four you have. Julio araya's it's unbelievable and they have depth. Dustin may twenty goslin. They have seven eight legit guys who they can throw out a star. I mean that's fair get rolled as you're saying that the us go to win the world series..

"Is not showing the work ethic or the devotion to the game that they are expecting that they're they lack of work ethic. Here we go here. We go about that so he said. Let me see what he said here. You said that On the mcafee show laskey said what i have heard that he is a last guy in first guy l. type of quarterback like none of maniacal work like not the maniacal work ethic. I even heard it compared to justin herbert while it was like dude when justin herbert showed up he was like a psychopath when it came to working and getting ready for the draft or even at his or even at school. Like give me more. I want to work non stop. And i've heard that there are issues with justin fields work ethic okay and the second thing that orlowski said as far as what his scouts were telling him was his sources. Were telling him with that. Where's his desire to be a great quarterback. I think that there is a desire to be a big time athlete from what is expressed to me. But where is his desire to be a great quarterback and to be great. You got to be willing to find the things that you're not good at and just freaking grind on them okay. I have questions about this. I'm not this if this is laskey this okay. So he's had some type of hidden agenda because he ate black people to say i'm going to sabotage just feels even even if this was the opinion of his agenda. Like really you're decision. Makers with the forty niners with the falcons or with the denver broncos or with the kilmer the pacers were like the new england patriots unique quarterback. That's what they're going to rely on. Dan orlovsky we really liked. Justin feels but i heard on the makati show or lost. Say that feels has no work ethic. And he's not devoted to the game. Okay fucking move on many trash. We can draft so i. I don't know exactly about that. One but what i have in terms of questions about this this quote or these feelings about justice fields again. I wanna know who made those assessments. Put your name behind it him. So fucking tired of anonymous kelt. Tell me who. It is ahead in accused justin fields of. Just tell me who would give me an idea. So i can go ahead and then compute that to see if it's valid or not i don't maybe the field guy who comes in last lead i. I don't know maybe justin fielded guy who doesn't have any desire to be great. I don't know i've never met justin fields. I've never talked to justin fields. At their opinion. The meeting room with justice fields little broken down film with justin feels. I don't know i have no idea. I've never been in the same vicinity at justin fields. So for me to dispute this this this report that that that alaska is getting. I don't know because i don't know so. I need to find out exactly who said it was the someone from ohio state was it from someone from georgia was a someone that's been working with fields. Prepare pro day to get ready for the nfl draft.

"Players coming back to the defense is going to be a little bit better even though you lost your defensive coordinator so the forty niners you go ahead to draft trailers to basically you did you. Do you replicate. What the kids city football team andy. Reid did when they drafted. patrick mahomes like number twelve. They still had alex smith. They still have the team that could compete so they kept patrick mahomes on ice alert. Alex smith do as thing in when mahomes recruited the go. They passed the torch over him and the rest is history now. Smith is looking for a job the same thing now. I thought what happened with san francisco.

San Francisco 49ers, Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles Make NFL Draft Trades
"Not in season. But March has been mad for the league, especially this week here, Schefty with what all went down. What happened here is that the 40 Niners have been trying to move up in the draft into the top five, frankly, for the last few weeks now, and they were able to cold together a deal with the Miami Dolphins at the same time that the Dolphins were going together a separate deal. With the Philadelphia Eagles that enabled the 40 Niners toe move up the third overall position to take a quarterback. And that means in all probability that we're gonna have quarterbacks go with the first three picks in this draft. We would think Trevor Laurence goes one Zack Wilson to and then the 40. Niners would have their choice. Assuming they stand three for the third quarterback in this draft. I would not dismiss Mack Jones in that conversation. Like Trey, Lance. They like Justin Fields. They're going to continue to do more and more work here in the weeks leading up to the draft, but they wanted to get into this slot now. So that they could have their choice at three. Knowing that they would get one of these quarterbacks a lot of people then wonder what happens to Jimmy Garoppolo. Sure, they're gonna be trading him right? Not so fast, because they believe that this is a Super Bowl caliber roster, and they're not ready to hand that roster toe a young rookie quarterback who's unproven just yet. So in their minds today, Jimmy Garoppolo is going to be a quarterback and opening day, and that's not a leverage play. That's not them trying to bait another team into giving up more compensation for Jimmy Garoppolo. Their true honest plan today is to have Jimmy Garoppolo as the starting quarterback. Have the first round draft pick that they take a quarterback learn for a year and then eventually it will be his job in San Francisco going forward. We have
Raiders make surprise pick in latest Mel Kiper Jr. mock draft
"Mock draft three point. Oh is available on. Espn plus right. Now and here. We go no surprise at the top. Trevor lawrence has been there and we'll be there for the moment and started to the moment. That pig is made. He's going jacksonville. And that's not going to change at number. Two mel projects the jets to stay put and select quarterback zach wilson who would be the team's highest drafted quarterback since they took joe nemeth thousand nine hundred sixty five at number three. We have a trade that panthers would move up from number eight to select justin fields from ohio state carolina getting its quarterback of the future miami. Picking up more prime picks. And the falcons make it four for four to begin the draft selecting their quarterback of the future trae lanes. Should it go this way. It would be the first time ever that quarterbacks go with each of the first four picks in the draft. We take a look at the rest of mel's top ten. After the four consecutive quarterbacks we see some other names you will get to know. Kyle pitch superstar tight end. More pass catchers jamarcus devante smith jail waddell notably absent on this screen. Max jones the fifth quarterback in this first round the star from alabama who mel projects. Going number fifteen to the new england patriots and let's start there because mel we spoke about this the last time you broke this down for us. You had max jones going considerably higher namely number eight overall. Why do you see this drop. Greenwich carolina eight with matt rule had max jones at the senior bowl practices where he was exceptional right. So you figure carolina's stuck at eight. They would look at mack. Jones new england and fifteen is built. Bellichik nick sabin connection and obviously looking at a quarterback to get back to. Maybe the tom brady days. Okay get your that type of quarterback which is what mack jones is his style and the way he goes about his business as a pocket passer so once carolina in my mach three point. Zero was moving up to get justin field. Mack jones next opportunity to come off. The board for me would be new england at fifteen.
Cam Newton Re-Signing With Boston's Patriots: Making Sense Of The Move
"I do wanna move to the quarterback news today tony because bill ballot check and cam. Newton have apparently decided to run it back next season with the patriots agreeing to terms with newton on a one year. Deal with up to fourteen million dollars. Newton did struggle down the stretch famously. Last season tony. So does this move makes sense to you. It's so charitable that you'd say he struggled down the stretch. He struggled from the moment he got in there. He had twelve rushing touchdowns which is wonderful but he had eight passing touchdowns and ten interceptions. I want to get the stats right. Here he was. I mean he couldn't throw downfield. He was twenty eighth in passing rating and he was deadliest in yards per game. And so you asked me. Does it make sense. And i'm going to tell you declarative in affirmatively. It does make sense because he's a professional quarterback right and he took responsible. He was terrible last year. He couldn't throw it but he took responsibility after every loss. He said this is my fault. He was a leader. The other players revered him as a leader. The coaching staff loved him as leader. Belichick him. Personally the worst that can happen problem is that he becomes a backup. And would you trust your team to the backup cam newton after all these years. Yes you would. It does feel like the contract. You give to maybe charitably again. A high end. Backup tony because look the deal as it is six billion dollars again or wrapped up in incentives and honors and playoff achievement. So a lot of this really does hinge on how we actually plays in real time but the other thing about this. That clear is that this is just mr right now for bill belichick. This is not mr right. They're going to go and look around. And there is a phrase that i think of another piece of wisdom from someone else that by the way describes nothing about my own personal life or philosophies but you are as faithful as your options. What some wise men believe bill. Belichick is faithful to cam newton right now because there aren't options otherwise at that price but is it going to look at the draft and say. Can we get another quarterback absolutely. Oh he'll look at the draft. And maybe mack jones will be there and maybe trade lance will be there and he'll maybe everybody talks about him requiring jimmy garoppolo very when he's not having broken bones but he has broken bones a lot you. It is at the moment to marriage of convenience. But i will say three things. One cam had no training camp last year none too. He actually had toronto virus himself and might have been in a depleted physical condition. And three m. it's it's just hard for me to believe that he would be this bad again. I you know. I got to be a little bit better but again again. My point would be if you were stuck with cam. Newton that's like being stuck with twenty five other backups. This guy who was the mvp at one point and on muscle memory alone. He could probably make something happen. Maybe maybe i'm being naive about this. I don't
Who is QB2 in 2021 NFL Draft?
"It would have been fully justified and with that we welcome you back as always live from the seaport district appear seventeen brought to you by chase. I green this get up and we have a huge our coming your wine. It starts with this. It's a quarterback sneak mc shays make board is in and wait till you see the first four picks. He's with us live to break down off the top. Then wait a minute. What did russell say. Is he talking about getting sri. Didn't from seattle the wild ride in. Nfl history continues. And then we'll tell you how the shawn watson saga plays out and what it will mean for every team in the nfl. All that and more as we get out with you when this hour which starts right now with todd mcshay post super bowl mock draft. It's available right now on espn plus all it. It's fascinating a number one. That's no big surprise. He's got trevor lawrence going number one to urban meyer and the jaguars. But here's where it gets interesting. He also has quarterbacks going to three and four at two he has the jets taking. Byu's zack wilson who has been rising up. Everybody's draft what he has been be talk of the nfl draft process so far at three overall. He's projecting trade the panthers moving up from eight to take north dakota state's train lance to be their quarterback of the future which leaves ohio states justin field sitting there. Four and mcshea has the falcons taking him fields the second highest total qbr in college football season and then jones sliding down a little bit later to make five quarterbacks in the first round in there he is the man with the mic board. It is mcshea and it's awesome. Let's start with this todd. We all understand. Trevor lawrence going number one. Nothing even to discuss. How firmly planted in. Your mind is zack. Wilson right now as the number two quarterback in this draft. I think very firmly. The first thing i do when the season is over and a govan studied the top quarterbacks. Because i know that's what we're going to talk about for the majority of this process leading up to the draft and after lawrence. There's a little bit of a gap and then at zack wilson. And then there's a gap between gods trey lance from north dakota state and justin feels from ohio state. So i think he is clearly the number two quarterback in this class. The question becomes greenie. Is that the jets taking two or the jets gonna move out and allow a team like a carolina to that number two spot to take him. And that all depends on the domino's in terms of the veteran quarterbacks right now where does shawn watson wind up carson wentz. We know is going to get moved to chicago indianapolis. I think joe douglas. The general manager is kind of waiting. And seeing some of these other quarterbacks go and he's fielding phone calls he's not aggressively making calls but fielding calls to see maybe if they can move sam darnold and if they do exactly since the pick for the jets at number two and if not as i said i think the jets will move outta to and wilson will still wind up being that number number two overall pick in this class. I grew the. I've been saying for a while. I agree with you completely. He'll be number two. The question is who winds up making the peck. Then the other part of this is. I'm old enough to remember a time when we wondered if justin fields might supplant trevor lawrence as the number one draft now all of a sudden these the fourth quarterback off the board. How did that happen. You go back. And study games against indiana northwestern. And then the college football playoff national championship game against alabama. He completed around fifty two percent of throws with five interceptions. Those games in my opinion. You look at it physically. He's big. he's sturdy strong who mobile. He's got a big arm all the traits that you look for. But he likes to see his receivers. Come open and get stuck on that. I read very frequently. So you compare him with trae. Lance and i have identical grades on the to train. Lance didn't play the level of competition. Didn't play as many games as is justin fields but i think he processes the game a little quicker in terms of going from his first into a second and third and seeing the entire field. So it won't surprise me if it feels is third quarterback off the board. But i think they're kind of bunched together in that third tier of quarterbacks behind lawrence wilson and then the other two and then i want to ask you about the guy that you currently have fifth because i'm a regular listener of the first draft podcast and so i'm listening the other day to you and field. Yates and mel kiper talking about what was going on at the senior bowl and everyone is raving about matt jones. Your buddy mel had max jones moving this thing and i believe he has him sort of. I believe he hasn't projected higher than you have in projected. What do you see for mack. Jones as this process goes on the fifth quarterback in the first round. Well i think what's going to happen. He's matt jones is going to benefit from the fact that these four quarterbacks are gonna come off the board quickly and it's probably going to be cut because of trades moving up. I have matt jones going number twelve overall right now in a i had chicago moving up to twelve in san francisco. Moving back to twenty we have to see where carson wentz go. It does go to

"Give you some insights tomorrow night following See you basketball. And then Thursday, the last practice And of course, we'll be back. Live in studio on Friday night in Denver, But we appreciate you guys hang with us over the course this week is we've been kind of Breaking down. What we're seeing out here was some of the buzz is did the national team practice in the first segment of this hour? Let's get to the American team. And as we said, Ben, this is this rosters incredibly stacked. Let's start with the quarterbacks, though, because Jamie Newman was the guy that was the buzz around the practices today, both national and American team Jamie Newman look really, really good, and he had a knocked out year We're gonna be questions about rust. There were questions about timing with the receivers out here, since he's never thrown with any of them, but honestly, throughout the course of some of the one on one drills, or even into some a team. I thought he looked very clearly like the best quarterback out here. We'll see how the week progresses Right now. He's got a notch ahead of Mack Jones. Even Yeah, I would say that he did. I would say that he was the The winner of the day. If there was such a thing, Hey, overthrew a couple receivers. What? Perfect, but I thought it looked pretty good overall. Certainly better than I expected. The measurements came out. He's got those tenants hands. You got admits to grip it, rip it with the football and, you know, I thought that I thought he's placement was very good. I thought his velocity was good. No area. The field was off limits with his throws. He had a seam throw. I thought looked pretty tight. Um, you know we were watching during team. I just, You know, I just liked it. I just like watching the guys will think he's just a prototype. Pickle. Um you know what? What? What? You looking for out of a quarterback in the modern NFL? And I thought I thought he looked pretty good. The other two quarterbacks there, maybe have more name recognition. Certainly a lot more hype coming into this thing, but That Jones very clearly doesn't have the arm that Kelly Mahon and Jamie Newman half and, you know, there was the thing about the quiet cadence and all that kind of stand. It was weird. They ran. They ran the place, so I guess it doesn't really matter. But, you know, I mean, he's not out here. Aaron Rodgers hard counting anybody. Maybe got used to, like, very few fans and stadiums or something like that. And he's like I could do quite cadence because it doesn't matter. You're right. You know who knows? But I think you know with Mack Jones. I don't know. I appreciate him coming out to compete. But he was pretty clearly the consensus QB five coming into this and he might be QB six leaving, you know, Um I don't see anything that particularly jumps out of me. From him. I think he's a guy that reminds him or maybe an Andy Dalton. Anything else. Adult might have been a little more athletic and I hate doesn't have particularly strong army does have decent placement in the short intermediate game, but You don't have a strong arm doesn't push the ball down the field that really do anything that you know it jumps out at you. He's just kind of kind of good at a lot of things not really great at anything. Um, that's there's that killing Monte. Um, I did the best, you know, physical tools overall, but, uh, you know, he's he was off target with passes, um, firing fastballs to running backs That maybe didn't need to happen. Um, and and so I, You know, it's It's interesting to see what what he could do the next couple days to kind of fix. Some of those type things I had the small hands nine and a quarter inch hands are small hands for somebody his size, But, um, you know there those three I would say all three had better days than anybody on the other squad, And that's that's saying something I think particularly highly of Mondor Mack Jones his days So I really love. I want to preface this. I really love the DBS of this group. But we got to get to the wide receiver talent. Now, First of all could areas Tony made a couple of spectacular plays on the ball. There was one where he caught the ball kind of as he's going in on a bit of a slant. Had the challenge was to catch the ball from behind and and kind of up in a way. And that was on a one on one drilling. It just looks spectacular. He tracked the deep ball a couple of times. Really Well, one he came down kind of awkwardly came out of practice. I don't know if he ended up coming back in, but Canarias. Tony, who is going to absolutely go in the first round out of Florida looked really, really good. It claims and receivers a Mari Rogers And what was the other one here? Gotta find him real quick. I know is a pal trying to find his number here, but, yeah, Powell and Rogers there so frickin town that Marty Rogers. I absolutely moved him up and work Whatever. Box you have of a Marty Rogers who I think a lot of people had him as a easily top 100 prospect, But I mean, I think he firmly has the chance to be in date to shut a lot of chemistry but basically show chemistry with all the quarterback. He looked good with whoever was out there. I thought he had Ah, really, really spectacular day. But then we get to the DBS. And I honestly think that between the safeties in the corners, this is such a really nice group that if the Broncos pick any one of these guys, it's gonna upgrade him. Feature Mila Faan Will who you are a big fan of I am a big fan of He was definitely a guy wrote down on my nose before we even came out here. Played corner today..

I think coach Brian has, you know, sort of in a class of his own in terms of what he was able to accomplish what his record is, and I mean, he's the one that made Alabama and the tradition of Alabama a place where lots of players wanted to come say they've got some all time performances from his offense, including Heisman winning wide receiver Devante Smith, who said a championship game record with 12 catches Go along with 215 yards and three touchdowns, and he did it all in the first half, because you'd injure his hand early in the second half and be done for the night.

"Voting. Stands out to me. Is his accuracy Incredibly accurate short Indeed. I love the deep accuracy shown. I mean, he makes the difficult prose look easy, and he's probably got four or five throws a game. It's just they blow you away. I mean to your jaw hits the floor and he makes him look easy, and it makes him look effortless, and he also has a great feel for ball placement. That's the biggest thing with him. A lot of the Alabama Yards come after catch because he puts it in the perfect spot. The receivers never slow their mo mentum, so they're full speed running through the catch. Next thing you know, a receiver. With all the momentum in the world and a full head of steam, they're difficult to bring down in the open field. So this passing attack has taken flight in large part due to Mack Jones is understanding his ball placement and his ability to push the ball downfield off play action because they have a very good rushing attack as well. Have a great offensive line in front of them. And some of the best receivers in the country, including the best in Devante Smith testy back to you. All right, Shaun, Greg. Thank you very much.

He'll torture sometimes, but you've got to make sure that you're in position Tau create a mistake from time to time. Alabama against Justin Fields. Alabama against Justin Fields. They've got to keep him from getting out and running, causing trouble. What they've got to do is rush him and discipline rush late to keep it from breaking out. But then they've also got to put pressure on him just in fields. His production goes down far more than other quarterbacks when he's pressured in the pocket, so you can't just keep him in the pocket. You've got a pressure him when he gets there. One of the things that that will do for the Obama defense is that fields tends to look at one receiver. He tends to not come off of that receiver to the second look when he's under pressure if he's in the pocket, and they can do that, That's the best way to stop Justin Fields, who overcame a hard hit to the ribs and the first half semi final game, six touchdown passes a career high and Ohio State record fields and Ohio State against number one Alabama as we count down to kick off and coming up on college football live Which players on the field tonight will we see on Sundays?

"He had games with 15 catches 11 11 13. He was the most dynamic and dominant player that I watched in college football this year average 16 yards a catch. He was my choice at number one. At two and three. I was kind of aligned with the voters. The vote went Devante Smith, then Trevor Laurence, then Mack Jones. I flipped Mack Jones and Trevor Laurence. I've taken a little bit of heat for that. I've heard the argument with Trevor Laurence is the best player in college football and was the best player career. I don't consider it a career award. I consider it a year performance award. In the fact of the matter is Mack Jones completed almost 10% more of his passes. Hey, through 12 more touchdowns than Trevor Laurence. He threw one fewer interception that Trevor Laurence Um, I did debate to be honest, with so much talent on Alabama. You had to kind of weed out. You know how much credit What do you do? Do you split the vote? How? How much do you Give it to Devante Smith versus Mac Jones versus not Jay Harris. I mean, how do you weigh that? Um, I wait. Kyle Trask. I had him. I think four you only vote for the top three. Trask had better numbers that the Mack Jones or Trevor Laurence. He also had three losses in the regular season. I just I had the head to factor that in in some way, shape or form and I knocked him down as a result, but it was easy to pick Devante Smith. I struggle with Mack Jones versus Trevor Laurence a little bit But I just thought the season that Mac had was better than the season that Trevor had. Trevor certainly had a better career. But unless you're asking me to vote for the best career player over the last three or four years, my choice was Mack Jones to and Trevor Lawrence at number three. All right, we come back. We've reached the midway point of the show. I vowed to do this every year. I don't know how many people were actually there to experience it. Over the years As the stories have been told.

BYU QB Wilson, likely first-rounder, entering draft
"Plays Clemson at 8 P.m. Eastern and the Sugar Bowl for a spot in the college football National championship game. All eyes air entering this game or on Justin Fields. Fields in the Big 10 championship game struggled immensely. With his final stat line, and the wind against Northwestern was was 12 passes completed out of 27 attempts. Only 114 passing yards, no passing touchdowns, two interceptions, and the Ohio State signal caller only averaged 2.9 yards per carry running the football. Earlier today. BYU quarterback exact Wilson Declare for the NFL draft, and the conversation currently is still Will be Wilson or fields as the second quarterback taken in the NFL draft after trouble Lawrence Zack with that conversation surrounding fields on size or offsides fields. We'll send a statement to his draft critics tonight and show us that he should be the second quarterback off the board. Come in the NFL draft. Besides, I'm gonna go off sides here and I'm not saying Justin Fields can play a good game time. He can't be worse than what he did up against Northwestern. Unless if he balls out and gets the victory, that's the only way that you show a definitive argument why he should be the second quarterback. There's a lot of debate. There's gonna be a lot of conversation leading up to that right now. It seems that Momenta miss shifting to Zach Wilson, and now it's up to Justin Field to try to get that back. Ultimately. Even if fields plays well. And there he could play. We'll go blow to blow up against Trevor Laurence and the Clemson football team. I just don't think Clinton's went and I said this all year. I know it's not going out on a limb. I just feel as if we're on a collision course to see Alabama and Clemson once again. So unless it fields gets that win, I don't think there is enough of a statement that is going to get sent tonight to basically guarantee that he'll be the second quarterback off the board and then fields coming in at number three. Or maybe even for dependent on what you think of trade Lance and Mack Jones. So I do go outside just in fields will not send the statement tonight In my opinion. And I still think there will be draft critics. They're questioning him on if he should be the second quarterback off the board, all

"So I actually think it works, too Alabama's benefits that they were challenged a bit and I don't think overconfidence is really gonna be the issue that that next haven has to deal with. Fair enough. The Heisman finalists have been named, Um two of them are roll tide guys in Mack Jones and Devon to Smith and Trask in trouble. Lawrence did get the nod to be in the group of the finalists Don't know if he's going to get the award because he missed too many games. At least the Vegas odds have it between the two Alabama guys with two. But they Smith actually gaining favorite status and Mack Jones as the second choice as of right now. I don't know if you have a boat. Don't know if you want to reveal your vote. Don't know if you wanna entered your vote. What do you think of the Heisman Trophy this year? Yeah, I don't vote for it. I don't I just don't really vote for anything awards wise, but I don't know what to make of it. I think that, um It, Zamora interesting Heisman race and we've seen in quite some time because it's not just between one or two players. You know, often we We know it Z gonna be one guy or another. Going in tow the ceremony and it feels largely just fate accompli. I think here, there's real entry ground. How people voted. And there's certain scenarios that you can look at the Alabama guys split the vote between them, and maybe that gives an opportunity for Trevor Laurence. Sneak in there. Um, Devante Smith was kind of the hot guy down the stretch and probably solidified some of that was how many balls he caught in the S E. C. J midget game. At the same time, or you looking back Jones's numbers and they compare really favorably to even a guy like Joe Parole last year. So, um, I'll be interested to see how how, how The breakdown works and I think we can all go into that announcement. Really not not knowing who exactly is gonna win it. I'm glad to hear you don't have a vote, and I can absolutely ask you if you had a vote. Who would you cast it for? I don't know. Um You know what? I haven't really given it much thought to be honest with you, but I sort of take the position that People criticize the Heisman for being a quarterback award, but at the same time Quarterback is the guy who's got to make all the decisions. The quarterback's the guy who's got to get the ball where it's supposed to be. Who's got to run the offense, and it's certainly good receivers and talented players. And make it quarterback look good and certainly Alabama. There's tons of of weapons there, but the way Mack Jones has played week in and week out, I think he's got a very strong argument. I I actually don't think he's going to win. But if I revoting, I would probably lean in his direction just because I think he's been the key player to the team that His his dominated the season and and he's I think the biggest reason why they scored as many points as they have You and I are on the same page. If I vote, Mack Jones, we get it. My buddy Dan, walking from USA today, talking college football here with a sense CBS portrayed to I'm giving Ohio State a chance to pull the upset. I'm giving noted Dame Very little kids to actually be able to beat Alabama. If it's Clemson and Alabama for the championship. How will it be perceived? How will it be received and part of that is television ratings and the you may or may not be the kind who likes to speculate on that. Um, it is how many times in how many years we've had the same two teams playing for the national championship? Is there any fatigue attached? To the tide against the Tigers. Yeah, I'm sure there would be some. I believe it would be the fourth time in seven years of the playoff that they played in the championship game and the fifth time they played in the playoffs. In seven years and and that may get old for for some folks, Um, so you know, but They have also been the best teams and I don't know. You know if you're gonna have a system where the like a playoff and in college football, this is not the unsuitable a tournament. It's Cinderella in college football doesn't exist. And so the best teams are going to be there at the end, for the most part, and Maybe the best teams and I don't really You have haven't opinion on it other than to say, may not be the best for television ratings, but it certainly honors Who the best teams are I agree Wholeheartedly, which again? You and I are on the same page about light tonight. That's good. Makes me feel better about my position. If you're on the same page with may nothing you could do because I'm here and I'm getting tweets and stuff. Alabama Clinton Again. Quite mark question, Mark question, Mark. Hey. They burned it if they both win this week on Friday, and they play again, I'll look forward to it because I think you'd be great game number one, and that's the most important thing in this number. One thing we should always be looking at, but they if they win, they win and they should get a chance to win a national championship. Both have one before when I say both, I mean the programs. And the coaches will both Bonaire for a longer period of time. Who do you think the title would mean more to it? This state dabo are saving I don't think it's going to change either one of their lives at this point. I think they've both done pretty well. But I think with saving just every time he wins the title, it It. Changes the conversation or strengthens the argument that he's the greatest cultural ball coach of all time, and you know the kinds of numbers that he's putting up if they win it again. It's It's almost unthinkable in this era that somebody could be that that good for that long but He's found a way to do it and along the way to reinvent what their program is and how they win games, and so that Uh, look, I I don't know that it's a big breakthrough or anything like that, for for either one of them. They both You've been there and done that. But savings. He's already in historic territory, and you know another title would truly You know, I think truly put him far out of reach for just about everybody else that we've seen. Dan. Last thing you're going to either game you're doing what everybody does in the covert world in which we live, watching it on TV, like the rest of the world and then getting on Zuma's soon as the game ends. Azzam. Now I will be at the Rose Bowl played in Dallas that Z. That's where I'll be on New Year's Day, so everything in this world can change on a moment's notice. But that's where I am planning to be Dan. We plan on having you on after the season's over and done with help us. Wrap it up.

"The rocket mortgage studios when you need certainty in the home buying process with a loan that fits your life rocket can so Let's get the Mack Jones and Devante Smith. Ah little bit more. And who should really be the guy that comes out with the Heisman. You start with Mac Jones, and the argument for Mack Jones is pretty simple. We're talking about a guy that is playing quarterback for the best team in the country and they're undefeated. So That's that's pretty simple in itself. I mean, you can get the numbers and throw them in their asses. Well, of course, and he's got almost 3800 yards passing 32 touchdowns for interceptions. So you're talking about a quarterback that can make the throws throws down the field. Which he's done routinely throughout the course of the season, Mack Jones and his ball placement the way that you see the way he lobs the ball up in the air that angle as it comes down. Is so smooth. It's so good and for the ability for those receivers down the field, whether it's waddle, whether it's Smith, whoever it might be for those kind of guys over the course of this season to be able to look up and right there and their field of vision, nice and easy to see coming down in broad daylight. Is a deep ball from Mack Jones. And that means a lot right to have a quarterback because you can have for the for the Devante Smith Mack Jones argument. And Who do you pick over the other for the Heisman Award here? You're going to say Well, yeah, Mack Jones or Devante Smith. You can get open, but You gotta have the quarterback that gets in the ball. You gotta have a guy that's good enough to do that. That leads him when he's down the field and open all those different things. So sure, Smith has all these receptions and yards and touchdowns. But Mack Jones is the guy. He's the quarterback. He's the guy that's making this all work. Right. That's the argument that you're going to make his Mack Jones is making the throws and for him to do that, consistently, you reward him for that as the quarterback of the best team in the country. Mack Jones, your Heisman winner. That's the case you make. I'm not making a case that that's the thing. I'm not making that case. If I'm giving the Heisman to anybody. It's Devante Smith. That's the guy. Vontae Smith is the guy you got to give him the Heisman this year. Because one It's not just that he's leading the country when it comes to, you know, Receptions yards, touchdowns. 98 receptions 1511 Yards 17 touchdowns, but Watch this guy play football. Watch him play. My goodness. Have you ever seen Devante Smith play football? He's unbelievable. He's one of the most legitimate talents you could ever see. Coming into a college football season like the highlights our mind melting because he's got everything. He's a guy that's got this incredibly elite speed his ability to get down the field the number of times where he's hilariously wide open because he's just so substantially better like leaps and bounds, Miles ahead better. Then the guys that are trying to cover him, guys that a lot of cases In the SEC. He's embarrassing those people he's doing it routinely. He's doing it after Waddell gets injured, so that's going to be one of the arguments. Say it Well, if he had been around the whole season, you go well waddles over there, and he's taken a lot of pressure off of them. So it's not quite the same. Waddle goes down. Well, what do you know? Smith is still killing it. Kids still great. And so when you see somebody That is so singularly talented. That is so unbelievably good. And you're watching him put up the numbers that he does. You can give Mac Jones all the credit in the world. I get it. I understand the idea of seeing the quarterback and believing that, Hey, that's the harder position to play. He's got more responsibility. He's making the throws. You got to give the Mack Jones but who's the better player? That's the thing like who is the better player? I can't in good conscience tell you that Mack Jones is a better player, The Devante Smith Smith's unbelievable And he's one of those guys that Matt Jones could be a good pro like he could. You could end up being a pretty good player. No. Smith is gonna be a great pro. That's a guy that we're talking about. Top 10 pick in the draft Potential Hall of Fame career like that's the kind of talent that he gives you because he is lightning quick because he has great feat because his ability to track a deep ball is there and it's not just that, but also some of the contested catches. That he's made. It's the idea that he can get up with one hand in the back of the end zone, jumping up and turning around and falling backwards and make that graph. That's there's highlight play after highlight play after highlight play after highlight play, and so you can credit the quarterback for getting him the ball, but When Smith is that wide open. How many quarterbacks can't get him the ball? You know what I mean? How many quarterbacks would he make look so much better just because he exists on a football field like if I'm going to pick the better quarterback because I know Mac Jones has the numbers right? So he is the numbers. He's undefeated. He's probably going to get votes over Trevor Lawrence for the Heisman. But if you're picking a better quarterback, you're going Trevor Laurence, right. Like who is a better player. If you're gonna have one guy for one game, I'm going with Trevor Laurence because Lawrence has that ability when He's in these games to make the throws consistently in the tight windows, right? It's not just about accuracy when you When you talk about quarterbacks, we look a lot at completion percentage. That's a big deal, and on some level it should be. But When you watch Lawrence past. The thing that makes him so special is not that he's just consistently accurate. But it's the idea that when he's throwing a ball, given the route that the guys running He puts it exactly where it's supposed to be. Time and time again. He makes professional throws regularly. He's been doing that for a couple of seasons. He's done it in big games in national championships. He's done it as much as you can possibly do it. So I'm not trying to beat up on Mack Jones too much here. Not at all. I think he's amazing and again. I think he's going to get more votes than Trevor large for the Heisman. But Lawrence is a better player. And he's just a better quarterback. And it goes to that same argument of who is the better player When you're trying to pick out the Heisman? Who is the best player in college football? You gotta pick one guy. Is Mack Jones, a better player at his position. Then Devante Smith is at his The answer is no. And that's one of the things that I think is important here, right? Because for Smith, you have a disadvantage of not being a quarterback. All the awards. I don't know what it is ever. Everybody just loves. You know, Part of it is the way the game is played Part of it. His name recognition. Part of it is the story that you build. It's always about quarterbacks every single award, you know whether it's college pros. They want to give it to quarterbacks, Those other guys most likely to get nominated. I mean, when's the next time we see a tight end? When the Heisman, you know, like, When is that ever going to happen? It Z almost impossible. For Smith to be in the conversation. The way he is, is a testament to how great of a player he is. How truly amazing of a talent he is right here and right now, and so if you're picking a Heisman candidate, you gotta go with one guy and your four nominations as they've just been laid out this evening. The official announcement. Just came out a couple of hours ago. Who are you going with? Are you going with Trask? Kyle Trask out of Florida. Are you going with Trevor Laurence? Are you going with Matt Jones? Are you going with the Vontae.

Their defense has got to come up with a stop here to force Alabama to attempt a field goal. Gordon, six at the Gator 29 from the right hash mark three receivers left. Smith is in the slot to receivers right now. Jones calls for Harris to come in motion behind him right to left. Jones takes the snap, he swings. It left a Harris couple of blockers in front Harris across the 25 yard line, and he'll be awfully close to the first down marker. He's got it. So the 23 6 yards on 36. That's great recognition for Mack Jones because they had magic Harris up on lined up all the way to the right hand side of the formation. They motioned him back in. But then he realized that ventral Miller, the linebacker was in Manda Man coverage. And then all the sudden, Harris just turned on the Jets. Mack Jones threw it right out in front of him. He was able to catch the ball turned upfield. Looks like they are going to take another look at this and make sure that he ended up picking up the first down Well, while they take a look at it, or pause, 10 seconds for station identification in association with Frere Field, I enjoy college.

"Mack Jones throws his fourth interception of the season, but that was just the start of the play trade. Dean wrested away from Miller forced all took a mammoth hit. From John Matchy, the Alabama receiver, Dean fumbled it back. Alabama recovered and they have it at the Gators 31 yard line with the first down 6 21 to play first quarter here in Atlanta, the S E C championship game. We're tied at seven. Johnson's in the gun Harris offset to his right now emotions out of the backfield. Jones back to throw under pressure fires left side wide open to Vontae Smith, he waltzes in for the Alabama touchdown. Smith can burn any defense. He is in the end zone for the 16th time this season, and Alabama's back on top at 13 to 7. Well, I think it's safe to say that that interception didn't hurt him. Too bad. They end up running the perfect route scheme here in Mack Jones buys just enough time drifting to his left to allow Devante Smith to clear the linebacker. And once he does that, there was nobody left to make the play. He takes the catch. Takes the ball straight into the end zone. Well, Reichert boots the extra points Alabama benefits after Dean fumbled the interception. One play later, it's Jones to Smith. Both of them legitimate Heisman contenders on trying to make their final cases on that front here tonight. So Jones with his 28 touchdown pass. 16 of them to Devante Smith. He is the S E. C s all time leading touchdown maker through the air now, with 39 career touchdown receptions here. We're talking about it before the game rack. Nick saved and actually said this Earlier this season. He might be thinly built at 611 75 Devante Smith, but he is not frail now. I mean, that's I've heard that people say that that's part of the reason why he might follow in the draft. He might go late in the first round or early in the second round them. I want to say, Show me how many games that he's missed because of his frail frame. I would say that this guy's always on the field. He's always making people miss. He's not taking very many hits, and when he does catch the ball lot of times he just runs past people. Reichard kicks it away and over. Antoni has it at the five Far side gifts left darts to his right 15 to the 20 on wrapped up at 21 Yard line. Question is rack in Florida keep up their offense that that is what they have relied on all season, and they know the task ahead of them here tonight..

"Great start again. I felt like that Last drive was big for Tennessee. They really needed to get a touchdown on the board. They settled for a field goal. I just don't think you can expect a kick field goals and hang with Alabama. Holding the slot to the right. Right hash is whether they begin to 25 yard line. Nagy Harris Bangs off would bait Sackler about 28 yard line, and then every time he takes a hit this time, it's his backup, Brian Robinson, But he's running backs. Take hits. Continue moving forward more. I mean, I think that's what one thing that you've known with Alabama running backs over the years. It's safe. It's not gonna bring in guys that air. Just slashes. His guys are physical, downhill breaking tackles really well put together, guys. From the right side. Robinson now checks back into the backfield resets from the right to the left of time on it Clipped John Robinson Hot Silver Man 40 Yard line outside the numbers 45 46. Extra energy coming off of this silently backup running back seated Brian Robinson. Just a really good play by Mack Jones. Recognizing what he's seeing from the defense. He saw blitz coming in from the slot. I think he originally had a running play going to the left side of the offense, which would've ran right into the blitz, which I would imagine was unblocking switches over to the other side, and they get a positive play that picks up the first down Most Devante Smith behind the formation, locked in left side cut by bullet makes it to catch the 42 yard line goes outside the numbers toward this silent Dragged down mark the 33 pick up 12 another excellent round by boat. I think that's the second or third crossing route that holding his caught a pass for Mack Jones and Jones continues, continues to say, perfect. Put this ball out in front of flavoured, allowing him to run right into it and get his shoulders turned up field. It is 10 for 10 for Mack Jones hard smack hands. Once now another in the staff comes his way to his waist throws down the seam bowling again makes a leaping catch twisted in the 18 yard line and tackle of the 16. So the replacement for the injured jailing Waddle has suddenly become the featured man for the Crimson time He's coming. He's played awesome, so far believe that's his fourth catching the game now for 81 yards already. That's just a quick play. Flake play fake in the backfield, trying to suck the linebackers up closer to the line of scrimmage, which opens up that hole on that quick seam route from slave boat coming out of the slot. At the 16 yard line. First down Alabama handoff goes to Robinson again met stiff resistance at 15 and finally driven back Great swore the original Linus Tray von Flowers, along with John Bennet, wearing a tackle for Tennessee. You never wantto come into a game thinking about an injury, and I didn't think that was going to be the storyline. But what I definitely didn't think about Was that Tennessee was going to need to make an adjustment, so they know where slave Boldin was at the passing game, but that's how it's shaken out. I mean, he's the one that's really when the difference maker in the passing game so far. Star in a study report may not have been on this guy. Report five receivers across the formation three lets you right in the back field from Mack Jones clapping the hands waste. I snap looking right dancing. Now he'll tuck and run straight ahead. 15 right inside the tent and dives tour, the six yard line. Another bit of improvisation for Mack Jones. He wanted to throw wasn't designed Draw for the pocket, surrounded him and collapsing. His only escape was straight ahead. But they're gonna go quick again is this is just short of the first down market. Just outside the six third down snap. Jones under center is simply follows his right guard inside the five and that'll be a first down for Alabama as the clock hits 8 55 1st Jones gets kind of stood up a little bit immediately. But right when Brian Robinson is running back, has time to get up to the line of scrimmage just gives it a little bit of a boost from the backside of pushing. Forward about a yard secure that first down Andre Johnson checks back on the field for Tennessee's big Russians. The pistol formation first and goal Alabama from the five yard line right with 14 3 lead for a stonemason hangs out in the back field play fake Mack Jones, looking left fires back in the end zone, intercepted or incomplete. Looks like it's incomplete. Screaming for the pick is Bryce Thompson, the back, judge overrules. There is a penalty marker down prior to that pass at the one yard line. Alex more with the call on the penalty. Rolling on the field. It's incomplete pass price of the past folding of eligible receiver defense number 22. Jalen McCullough gets called for the holding penalty as he's doing defense looks like it's on. John was playing outside in the wide receiver position sticks jailer McCullough outside and then as he tries to slide underneath a jailer Ecologist grabs onto a jersey is ineligible Defender the I formation. Alabama is the ball on the penalties moved outside the two on the first and goal. Another marker is down on the far side of the field. 73 5 false start on Alabama pushes him back five years, right When they get the holding call that puts him in the inside the five yard line. You get a quick little false start. Other right tackle Evan Neil. It's a little bit and see if it's called the false start backing him right back up to where they started. Robinson stays on the field. He split far to their rights. And you've got five receiver formation here for Alabama Jones in the gun stands four yards behind the line of scrimmage. Couple claps hands he has. It looks quick past quarter, the endzone Whiteside away looking for him. Threat that one through Kenneth George got his hands on it dislodged it. Devante Smith was bracketed front back. You mentioned thread, I say. Maybe forced it granted you throwing it to one of the best receivers in college football. You've gotta like your chances, but I think if he just reads the defence, he could drop that one off to his running back. Brian Robinson you mentioned was split out to the right could have been an easy little pitching second goal inside the yard line for Alabama with 14 freely. They get off Robinson protective going at the medal, he said. The goal line Touchdown. Alabama Brian Robinson takes it in from eight yards out on second and goal and as the ball was handed in Robinson's Matt Jones raised his arms. He knew it is running back to zigzag his way and he is for his second touchdown of the year. Alabama with a 23 lead on Tennessee, with 8 12 left in the first half is Mack Jones saw Brian Robinson slipped that first tackle. He saw the scene the same one that Robinson did knew he was going to get into the end zone. Jones. Now what's the snap down as he holds for will writer who knocks down his third extra point to this?
