I'm not sure you understand what an opinion is. An opinion is a statement about a subjective topic (such as the quality of a football team). A statement about a fact (or an objective topic) is not an opinion at all. Therefore, your statement "that the holocaust never happened" was an incorrect fact, not an incorrect opinion.
However, for some reason people seem to be under the illusion that an opinion can never be wrong, which is not true. For example, if asked the question "What is more important in how a child turns out, Nature or Nurture?" and I answer with "Goats", then my opinion is almost certainly wrong.
I will agree that opinions within the scope of reason are rarely wrong until the subjective nature of the topic is removed. For example, if asked before a game "who do you think will play better Kobe or Lebron?" the question is subjective. Once the game has been played and the subjective nature is therefore removed, a person's original valid opinion can turn into an incorrect one.
So to be clear, yes, you were wrong.
Losing doesn't make me want to quit. It makes me want to fight that much harder-Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant
Really? Give credit where due.
Like just stated, it's going to come down to the trenches just like every game. And for us what that really means is our DL and OLB are going to have to play a near perfect game and pursue JF with a plan in mind. Uncontrolled rushes will kill us. If we can flush him from the pocket and contain him to one side of the field with some pursuit from a fast lb or corner I like our chances. But speed rushes off the edge are scary against him. He just steps up in the pocket and darts for the gap you just created and like a flash he's gone. And he knows how to get small and hide while running through the LOS plus he can juke any lb we got besides CJ. Thats a lose lose situation for any team.I'd rather get him moving sideways towards the boundary. You'd think that would work great, but that lil sob still makes perfect throws running at full speed throwing across his body. Still the odds are better getting him moving......if you can contain him lol. We need athletes chasing his butt down all over the field. We need Landon on the field for one. I shudder thinking of Vinnie coming up to try to tackle JF. Really wish Jonathan Allen had a year under his belt or the light would come on for Fanning. We need athletic beasts like that engulfing QBs before they know what hit em. It's gonna be a great game to watch.
And I see no problem with our OL imposing its will.
"We're modern-day gladiators, and that mental toughness is really important to have in a good team." Nick Saban

Saban will confuse the shit out of Johnny Football in September...
We kept him in the pocket last year. We ain't gonna do that this year. We are coming after his candy arse.
All due respect...your football cred on here is getting destroyed every time you post ITT.
He won the fricking Heisman trophy. He doesn't have to prove crap to any of us.
Did his arm suck when he threw 2 or 3 TDs against us and fit balls into impossible windows to sustain drives against us last year?
2010. South Carolina. 35-21.
No doubt, the guy is a hell of a football player. That said, I would not want to have Saban preparing the entire off season for me, and I'm the second game of the season.
Plus I doubt Alabama comes of the Vtech game as drained as they were coming out of the LSU game. Aside from a rare fumble and a unsual selection of plays late in the game, I don't think we are having this discussion with this much fervor.
Homerific as usual IMO.
What irked me last year is that we would attack him from the field last year. That is great if it works, but if it doesn't (and it didn't a lot) he had a lot of green to work with. We are going to have to get a big rush up the middle to flush him outside where controlled containment is coming, not waiting.
Eat clean. Train Hard.
But you aren't saying his arm sucks. You are saying that he floated balls when he should have made a different throw. There is a difference between having a bad arm and making bad decisions. Im not flaming you, I just wanted to point out that distinction.
Edit: Quoted the wrong person. I meant to quote BamaManager.
