Alabama insider Charlie Potter shared a story from Alabama safety Jared Mayden about Jones’ time on the Crimson Tide’s scout team. As the story goes, Jones wouldn’t stop “throwing bombs” to wide receiver Tyrell Shavers.
Nick Saban wasn’t happy about it and said to Jones, “Man, stop throwing it to him all the time.” Mac Jones quipped back, “Well, tell your defense to stop it.”
I love this swag. He was beating the Bama D deep in practice with the second teamers and (respectfully, he said afterwards) talked smack to Saban.
Rhule called him intelligent--very intelligent.
He may not be the answer, but if you give him a line, weapons, and a defense, he can throw for 4500 yards in a 13-game season, with 42 TDs vs 4 ints. Imagine what he can do if we build the OL and get him a TE?
I wouldn't even give up just this year's.
We are way more than just a quarterback away from even being a good team, much less a contender or a Super Bowl team.
This sounds like one of those deals that people look back on five, ten or even twenty plus years from now and laugh about how unforgivably stupid a team was.
