What do you guys/gals think?
Ray Perkins over Julio?????
Its hard to argue with any of the selections except for this one
Really difficult to compare athletes from different era's. They were each terrific players during their times but most of those old guys wouldn't see the field in today's time. I'm not knocking those guys it's just a testament to how much S&C these guys go through now and how much science and technology has advanced.
I wonder if Antonio Langham was considered, that pick 6 against Florida was a huge play in Alabama history.
Man. I'm glad I don't have to pick that team. Not sure how you leave Julio off though.
Amari Cooper will be there at the end of his career...hands down...if he stays healthy.
Most of us did not see Perkins play. How was he in his era? Was he clutch? Team leader? All American? How many years? The only knock on Julio was he wasn't a real vocal leader and he dropped the easy pass a time or two. Had to have been something along those lines but really nit picking.
langham was the best ever. He was a true shut-down corner.
David Palmer over Perkins
Langham over Javy
Barron = Teague. Either way works for me.
With Curry and Copeland omitted, the whole 1992 team was left off.

Andre smith and Julio please
Not that I seen Perkins play,, but he would be one of the candidates considering that he played on back to back (64-65) national championship teams and was selected for All American for his play in 66 on the team that should have won another national title.
I would also have taken SU over Ingram and found a spot for Andre Smith.
If AJ wins another one next season he replaces Namath.
May not matter that much in another couple of years about Perkins being there. Amari will most likely take that spot regardless.
Perkins had all those attributes. Tommy Tolleson, Dennis Homan and David Bailey were great ones in that era, too. None,however, had the athletic capibilities of JJ or Coop. We have been very fortunate to have phenoms in our midst these last few years.....
AJ is my #1, was #2 before last Monday.
Andre Smith has to be in it. The only lineman that should be in it over him is John Hannah.
Don't know about Perkins, but it is hard to imagine he's better than Julio or Palmer
i watched perkins play, very good player, but not in Julio's league
Woodrowe Lowe has to be in there as LB along with Leroy, Cornelius, and Derrick. Barron is the best safety we've had and we've had some good ones. Julio definately needs to be in there, ain't no question about that.
What about Dre Kirkpatrick? I at least think he is in the top 8-10. Shut down corner.
I know Ingram won the Heisman and I had more 22 jerseys growing up than I care to think about but I would have to put Shaun Alexander in there for one of them. The interesting thing to see is if AJ wins another NC and has a great season and is in the Heisman race would he take Namath's place?
Javy is on there as a returner. I think Palmer belongs in that spot.
Looks like a good list to me being an old timer.
I saw Ray Perkins play .....was All SEC, All American & Team Captain...He caught passes from Joe Namath and then the next year from Kenny Stabler. He could catch anything!! Check out this youtube video with Eli Gold about the '65 and '66 teams. Bear Bryant said that the year of he "Missing Ring" team was one of the best he'd ever coached. I saw the Sugar bowl when we beat Nebraska when Kenny Stabler was QB....unbelievable...their team was huge...we were little..but beat the crap out of them.
no, it's not difficult at all to say Julio was MAGNITUDES of difference greater than Perkins...
