Is Blake Sims the Answer at QB?

0 Views 0 Comments

After taking some time to reflect on the first game of the season we are still having a difficult time deciding if Blake Sims is the right player to be starting at QB for the Crimson Tide.  Sims is clearly liked by his teammates and they certainly play hard for him.  Sims also has a clear understanding of the offense and is a perfect game manager for a team with a dominant run blocking offensive line and a stable of ultra-talented running backs. 

However, the Crimson Tide also have an unbelievably talented receiving corps that has serious speed and ability to get down the field.  After watching the game against the Mountaineers you could tell that Sims struggled to get the ball to those receivers down field.  Amari Cooper had a big game with 12 catches for 130 yards but his longest catch was for 24 yards.  He is much to talented to not be given the opportunity to be targeted the deep down the field on a go route at least 2 or 3 times per game.  The same goes for Christion Jones, DeAndrew White and Chris Black. 

This Saturday against Florida Atlantic Jacob Coker will certainly get at least 15-20 snaps at QB and if he is more successful at pushing the ball down the field he could become the answer for the Tide at QB sooner than later.
