    What I dont get is why more DC dont just assign the DE to punish the QB and let LBs worry about the RB. After getting your franchise QB punished a few times they will go away from it no matter how many yards the RB gets.

    You don't know what I blame for that. What you do know is that I put some of the blame for the final game of last year on the defensive coaches.

    You shouldn't try to lump me in with a group of fans that you think you have pegged.

    Just keep wearing that badge of a pessimist and be happy about that. Leave the clairvoyance to the psychics.

    There's really no mystery on how to stop the option. All you have to do is have your DE contain and not let the Qb get outside just like a regular option play.

    DE takes Qb. LB takes dive man(RB). I'm not really sure why or how defensive coordinators are so baffled by it.

    If any of them are smart they'll make a call to Tuscaloosa Alabama and get the recipe on how to absolutely crush the spread/read option from Nick Saban

    When combined with a decent passer, it's hard to defend.

    you sir....(in my opinion ) are 100% correct......the def was ill prepared for something that everyone in the world knew was going to happen. It was extremely disappointing how unprepared they were in the skins game.......

    They had equal talent on both sides of the field when they played Florida in 09 in the SEC Champ game and held them to 13 pts.

    Among several other games in which they have crushed the spread offense-
    Clemson 08
    Texas 09
    Auburn repeatedly
    Florida '10
    Miss St '10
    Michigan '12

    Arguably in every case above Alabama had superior talent save for that UF SEC title game. But even that 'Bama team was stacked.

    Clemson '08 was highly overrated. Texas '09 McCoy gets injured early in the game, different ball game.

    Cam Netwon ran all over Alabama in the 2010 Iron Bowl after being down big

    UF '10, Miss St '10, UM '12 aren't even in the same universe as Alabama was talent wise

    I was thinking that too. Ware really had no business being on the field that second game, and it really had to be frustrating.

    Texas with colt McCoy had the ball twice deep in Alabama territory and had 1st and goal on one of those possessions and scored a grand total of 3 pts before McCoy "got hurt"
