How good do you think he would have been with an O line like this year? Maybe a first or second round pick?
Brodie had no work ethic and that was always going to be a problem.
I'm pretty content with the guy we've got back there
A junior high QB would look good behind those guys.
There would have been no shortage of deep pass attempts, that is for sure.

Haha I actually thought to myself "dammit Brodie" when Aj overthrew jones on that pass that would have scored. I know he had to throw it just made me chuckle.
Love Brodie and his dad, have much respect for the young man sticking with us during sanctions. That said, I never thought Brodie was that accurate of a passer. I am fine with AJ. RTR
He would have torn an ACL or something on the first sack he took. I'm happy he played for us, and he comes from a Bama loving family, but he was too brittle. RTR.
No matter how good the line is, a QB is still going to have to take a hit at some point.
So, I'm sure Brodie would've done fine behind this line, until he got broken in half and we had to bring in a much less experienced version of AJ. I'll just take the experience AJ.
pre or post hunting injury?
What happens to everybody else has nothing to do with us, understand?”
He never was nor will he ever be.
He was a third round pick behind a terrible offensive line...i don't think second round is a stretch
I think he would have benifited from it greatly. Having the stable of elite backs like we have now would have helped too. Winning more games and all the exposure would have landed him in second round IMO.

Did someone ask if you would rather have Brodie than Mccarron?
I was wondering why this thread became a referendum on AJ. OP was just saying the talent is better now on offensive line. Better everywhere really and Brodie would have had more success.
Brodie would have been great with this oline. I don't know how anyone can say otherwise. He was a really good college qb who played behind a much weaker line than we have now.
The better question might be how good could Brodie have been under Saban's Strength and Conditioning Program led by Scott Cochran.
