As the team is off this week, Alabama football stands at 7-1 on the season.
The Crimson Tide has areas to improve, but it has also developed playmakers. During his first year as offensive coordinator, Bill O’Brien is starting to see a three-headed monster form.
Bryce Young, Brian Robinson, and John Metchie are playing their best football.
Young is having a great year at quarterback.
The sophomore is in the Heisman Trophy race, and one is of 40 candidates in the running for the Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award.
He is third in college football for touchdown passes (26) while becoming the first quarterback in Alabama history to record 350+ passing yards and two rushing scores in a game. Young is also starting to trust his legs more.
Robinson has matured into a complete running back. The fifth-year senior has 706 yards rushing, 161 yards receiving, and 13 total touchdowns. He has three 100-yard rushing performances and is enhancing his NFL Draft value. As for Metchie, he looks healthy again and is making plays. He’s coming off back-to-back 100-yard games versus Mississippi State and Tennessee. When he is on, it makes Alabama’s group of wide receivers dangerous.
Metchie leads the team in receptions (52) and has five touchdown catches.
