Downvote me to oblivion but that is the worst play calling i think I've seen since the screen pass to Ed Scissum. Players gave it all they had, OC let them down.
I up voted you
1st and goal at the 6...gotta run right at them, esp with EL back in the game.
That being said, AJ hasn't just thrown the ball away as consistently this game either.
Still, I just cannot justify not running the ball there.
I agree, you have to give that offensive line a chance to pound it in
Upvote here Nomad, but McCarron did not have a very good game today.

This loss is a little more than just play calling bud. Not exactly sure what it was but we gave it all we had. We nearly erased a 20 point deficit. If it was done by players only then why have ANY coaches?
Basically this game came down to turnovers.
We got too pass happy when AJ wasn't playing his best to begin with. That said, we had a lot mistakes (turnovers, penalties) that contributed to this loss.
Th okay calling was horse shit. Fire that dumb ass and get it over with now. He lost this game. Not the players. Saban needs to check himself as well, he has the final say. 4 runs in that next to last drive and I can live with whatever happens.
You're right it was more than just play calling. But that doesn't change the fact it stunk. When you have 1st & goal at the 6 with Bama's O-line 3 of the 4 plays run should not be passes. Definitely not 1st down.
We coached like crap. The players did as well as they could have given the circumstances.
The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 2 Cor 10:4
Throwing so many times on 1st down killed our offense in my mind. Say what u want but this team and program is still a run 1st offense. When u elect to throw the ball on 1st down and get incompletions or a qb sack then u have almost completely taken the run game out of the equation for gaining a possible 1st down. Run the dang football to open up pass game!!!!!!
Though yeldons fumble sucked our backs still averaged 5.8 and 2.9 ypc. I like our odds of 4 runs from the 6. Disgusted with the way we lost. Playing our worst we should still win these games. These last 2 games shows you something about the teams heart. Need some coaches to believe in them and get the job done. 3 more games to get it right and hope for some help. What a way to waste the win last week.
U blame the OC for giving up 20 in the first qtr?
No, i blame the OC for 3 out 4 passes with 1st & goal on the 6 to win the game. And i understand the players have to execute, but it helps to give them something decent to execute.
Also wasn't thrilled with many other play calls either.
