Stephen Smith challenges Bill O’Brien to trust Alabama’s running backs

Alabama fans have put the Florida game behind them, but they want one thing from Bill O’Brien.

The Crimson Tide’s offensive coordinator has four talented running backs and needs to trust them more.

O’Brien neglected the rushing attack for three quarters against the Gators, and it almost doomed Alabama. Coach Nick Saban wants to have more ball control, and he has the runners to do it. As good as Bryce Young is at quarterback, the offense does not need to put everything on him. Dan Mullen had balance offensively, and Florida totaled 245 yards rushing with four scores.

On Monday, Stephen Smith of Touchdown Alabama Magazine challenged O’Brien to trust the running game via In My Own Words. Hopefully, we see the backs get more opportunities as the season continues.
