    He is thinking just like so many Alabama fans are thinking. We've never seen anything like this team at Alabama. Neither has any team in the SEC as this is the only team in SEC history to open the season with three games wherein 50 plus points were scored in each one. We've also never seen a QB like Tua. Those who watched Namath and Stabler can claim to have seen such talent at Alabama, but those Hall of Famers played in a era when QBs threw the ball very little. Anyway, like he says, it is early, very early...

    That expression on the North Texas punt return was priceless.

    Just because Snake and Joe Willie threw it fewer times doesn't mean they didn't throw it as well, in fact I'll argue that Namath was a better passer and had the quickest release I've ever seen and Stabler was a better runner.
    While I'm grateful we now have Tua and I wouldn't trade him for any other quarterback in college football I'm old enough to have seen all three and you could throw a blanket over them, pull one out and not miss a beat.

    Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying Tua is better than Namath or Stabler, only that at 60 years of age, I was too young to have seen them play in college. I was in the 1st grade when Namath graduated; the 5th when Stabler left. I believe Namath to be the best pure passer ever in the NFL, though Marino was arguably just as gifted.

    What I'm contending is that people of my age and younger have never seen anything like Tua at Alabama.
