Saban proved quite adroit tho and simply called plays away from Richardson.
Tons of screens and short outside stuff to simply avoid Richardson for the most part. Basically they game-planned the guy getting 2 yards up field every play.
I agree, that's why I find it amusing when people think drafting five kids is somehow going to improve the line. It just isn't that easy. Prefer to see some contuinity first before we go replacing four or five guys just so that we all feel better come next training camp.
I still think the only one needing the boot is Free and would be fine with a young guard or vet to challenge MB whose best position might be center anyhow.
