Sure. AJ McCarron has won as many consensus titles in 2 years as a starter as Tennessee has won in the 63 years of the poll era.

AJ must play some hellacious defense and special teams too.

Neither were/are great NFL QBs, but other than Peyton Manning, who has UT produced? What did Tee Martin, any of the Clausens, Ainge, etc accomplish in the league that Croyle and McElroy haven't?

And in the end, you'd gladly trade Manning for McCarron if AJ had done at UT what he's doing at Alabama.
Wait, wait...so you think Bama's recent run of dominance is because of AJ McCarron?!?!

I think you're ignoring or forgetting how much easier a qb's job becomes when he is supported by a stellar run game and defense.

I'm not saying McCarron is a scrub. I actually think he's much better than most people on here do (also better than Croyle and McElroy), but he could be replaced by MANY qb's currently in college, and Bama would have won just as many NC's as they have with him. He is pretty far down on the list of reasons they won.

None of what you just wrote had anything to do with the point I was making.

He actually played better defense than Tennessee in 2012.

You spoke as if McCarron is the reason for their recent national titles "...if AJ had done at UT what he's doing at Bama." All he did was ride a stellar defense and stellar running game without screwing the pooch.

I wasn't responding to the point your entire post was making. I was responding to that one sentence. Now go ahead and backtrack and claim you meant something else.
