“More importantly, McCarron has played his best in Alabama's two biggest games. In the last two BCS national championship games, McCarron has completed 43 of 62 passes for 498 yards and hasn't thrown an interception.” Mark Schlabach
Looks like Mark Schlabach of ESPN has McCarron as a Heisman finalist, and I don’t think he is too far off from predicting he could win it. I think the greatest competition will be from “Johnny Football.” McCarron is an incredible BAMA QB who has put himself in the driver’s seat of being one of the greatest pure BAMA QBs of all time. I think It can be expected that he will continue to improve upon his already great resume’ of stats and other SECCG and BCSNCG accomplishments. I think the key factor will be the offense line as well for contributing to his success for next season. There might not be as big a drop off on the O-Line as expected with the loss of DJ, Warmack, and Jones. Potential next O-Line starters are listed below:
LT – Cyrus (6-6/322)
LG – Steen (6-3/303)
C – Kelly (6-5/281)
RG – Arie (6-5/309)
RT – Shepherd (6-5/321)
Of course this will all be flushed out come Spring and Summer but early indicators based off of second teamers looks like this could be a great line. Some comments from Jones and Kelly on the line.
Jones on Kelly’s potential, "He just has great feet and body quickness,…He's a whole heck of a lot more talented than I am." And comments from Kelly with being on the second team, "running with the twos all year and they're awesome."
I think McCarron has a legit shot for winning the Heisman. Thoughts?
It's never too early to look ahead to the 2013 season with 10 bold predictions.

I like it.. Shepherd is getting over-looked and has played in a lot of games.. but I still think Leon Brown is here for a reason, and that reason is RT. I think Shepherd could make a good guard at his size.
I also think Saban wanst kelly at 295+ by fall.. I know he has trouble holding weight..
I think AJ is a shoe in to be a finalist IF we go undefeated. If we drop a game, it'll be just like last year. I also think he'll be challenged by any hot names that emerge.

he had me until the last prediction
If we go to College Station in September and whip little johnny's butt and then go undefeated (depending on AJ's numbers) I think you would have to put him up there. Most year's there is someone that breaks out of the pack. But if AJ has similar numbers to this year with a new OL then why not?
Am I the only one who thinks he'll face stiff competition from Yeldon?
McCarron would have been in NY this year had we just ran the ball.
His body of work has earned him a spot as a finalist and a trip to NYC if he has another season like his previous 2.

whether its competition or somebody taking stats away from him, yes - Yeldon could negatively influence his chances.... BUT Yeldon will also open up the verticle passing game for him too.
we were a much more verticle team this year - I expect those opportunities and chances to increase dramatically next year. We have Bell, White and Amari as well as Black who will all be deep threats.
Next year could really turn out to be a fun season.
