I don't know about better but they are not too far off if thats the case.....
Don't you think that the O-Line is better this year? Last year it was known as a very good OLine. But this year it is a near unanimous "best OL in the country". Of course they say it like this: "Arguably the best offensive line in the country". When rushers are getting farther down the field before having contact that plays into the rushing offense for every ball carrier. Trent, in my opinion, was the best Alabama RB since Sean Alexander. In fact, I would take Trent over Alexander if both were on my bench at the same age. However, the line is so important.
Look at the Titan's Chris Johnson. He had over 2,000 rushing yards behind a great offensive line a few years ago. Now he is getting hit in the backfield on average and is averaging 1 1/2 yards per carry.

Exactly what I was thinking! Plus one to you! Take aways is thie biggest difference!
My mom and Paul "Bear" Bryant's mom had something in common....They didn't raise anything but a winner!
Good point +1
IMO, I would rather have the takeaways, if I have to choose.
Takeaways are good. But are like sacks imo. You don't need takeaway or sacks to affect the offense. If your offense is like ours. & takes good care of the ball. The takeaways become a wash.

Weve played no one. These stats could be plus or minus 100 yards either way. It has all been in our hands and the decision of the coaching staff to play young players early and often on both sides. Lets revisit this after at least 3 normal SEC games......and Ark wasnt normal.
