Will Alabama football return to being respected on defense?
After two scrimmages, Pete Golding and the first-team unit are not playing around.
The same intensity was at Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday, and it forced sacks, dropped passes, and interceptions.
Nick Saban noted the success coming from Alabama’s rushing attack; however, the defense is tired of taking a back seat.
When it came to the first-team group, the players received a positive stroke from Coach Saban.
As for the second-teamers, there is still some improvement needed to be made.
Bryce Young and Paul Tyson were pressured a lot in the first scrimmage, and nothing was different this time.
He may have come to peace with a “fastball” offense, but Saban’s defense has not.
This unit is playing with fire and has the potential to be scary good in the fall. Before the fans see it on A-Day, Alabama’s first-team defense is looking like the real deal.
