    I think part of the issue with these Alabama RBs is that they looked great in college in part because their O-line is just so ridiculously good there compared to the competition. That's why running backs appear to be plug-and-play at Alabama. When the O-Line is just average, they aren't the first-round-pick type backs that they looked like.

    The problem is Ingram. Pierre Thomas moves the chains.

    The problem is Saban. In that he gets more out of his players than 99% of NFL coaches ever will.

    True. But Saban does have probably the best talent base in CF right now. And Ingram is a player in my estimation. I think he needs to go somewhere where he can be the primary back.

    When you have top talent at every position, you do not have to work super hard to win. That could make the life more difficult down the line for the players when you have teammates that are not super talented.

    What does this have to do with Ingram, who's worked ethic is outstanding?

    Is he good enough to be a featured back though? I have my doubts.

    Would be funny if he got traded to Cleveland.
