Pretty much, and Dismukes was right, other than the alleged racist remark.

Can't disagree there, not really sure I want Foster in T-town...but we'll take em'.

Damn man, Cody and Upshaw starting on a Super Bowl team not good enough? Maybe Richardson managing to break Jim Brown's rookie rushing records on a pitiful team? All the while with broken ribs the whole season. Pretty sure if Ingram got the touches in NO's backfield, he would at least have a shot to be relevant. Hightower sure looked good with the Pats this year also.

Oh, and then there's Julio...who went beast mode in the playoffs but of course the Falcons choked. I don't think they've underperformed, but they haven't exactly wowed either.

Yeah, I'm not saying they suck. Just saying they've haven't really been off the charts amazing or anything. Ingram is frustrating as a Saints fan because he shows the occasional sign of greatness. He just isn't the best back on the team yet though.

When you consider NFL talent the average career length, and etc it is very difficult to blow the doors off.  You get guys like the Mannings, Favre, Aikman etc who stay in for 10 + and it is very difficult to crack the lineup.  There re only 32 teams and new guys are constantly pouring in.  Everyone who plays in the NFL is a BA or they get cut.  That's just how it is.  You'd have to throw out some serious stats to say something relevant about the success of college athletes in the NFL.

A lot of Saban's guys get high marks for work ethic technique and etc perhaps inflating their draft rank over more gifted players.  You might could make a statement like that.

Damn Brave, you want HOF numbers from the get go ?
"Whenever I see those crimson jerseys and crimson helmets, I feel humbled to have played football for Alabama. Other players in the NFL talk to me about their schools and their traditions. I just smile knowing the immense love Alabama fans have for our school and its football program. I'm proud to be a part of that Crimson Tide heritage."

Whose expectations? You have to remember what they are walking into... seasoned veterans, and they will quietly prove it. These guys were the cream of the college crop and have loads of professional experience now. If you can step into that crowd and play competitively, well, not too bad.

I think the more touches Ingram gets the more productive he is. But in that offense I actually feel bad for Ingram.

Well you have the stars in Julio Jones who is a top 5 WR in the NFL imo and after that....

the guys in the past rookie class doing work:
Courtney Upshaw a good player on the Super Bowl winning team.  Dont'a Hightower stepping up as the leader on that New England defense.  Mark Barron having a pretty good rookie year on a rebuilding Tampa Bay team.  Dre Kirkpatrick had a rough year but that was due to injuries and a crowded DB depth chart.  Oh and then Trent Richardson breaking some Jim Brown records with broken ribs for a decent chunk of the season...no big deal.

then you have the young players a few years in:
Mark Ingram finally getting more touches and think he led New Orleans in rushing this year, not his fault the system is all about Brees and scat backs.  Javier Arenas a good starting CB for the Chiefs so far.  Terrence Cody, see Upshaw.  Marcell Dareus, I honestly don't know because I haven't seen a Bills game in forever so tried to do some looking around and he's been pretty good for Buffalo.  Kareem Jackson improved big time this year and became a very good player on that Houston defense.  Andre Smith has been injured for most of his career and did well in his first fully healthy season, probably getting an extension.  DeMeco Ryans is one of the top LB's.  

the vets:
Roman Harper is a big hitter on the Saints but starting to decline a bit.  Then you have some other guys like Johnson and Anderson that have had solid NFL careers so far and some other guys being good rotational guys as well like a Peprah.

this upcoming rookie class:
Chance Warmack ranked as the top OG, Lacy a late 1st/early 2nd player, Milliner going top 15 right now, Fluker going late 1st/early 2nd, Barrett Jones 2nd, and Jesse Williams going around the 2nd round.

I think Bama has done pretty well so far if you ask me.  A lot of contributing rookies, some super bowl rings, other players with some nice careers, and then these upcoming guys should be pretty good as well.  Not everyone is going to be a super star or always win every game but they are making an impact in an nfl so not sure why someone would question that.  We're doing better than most and to think before Saban there was hardly any NFL talent.

Not really, winning doesn't stop Alabama boosters.

I'm not one to say Bama doesn't pay or have their ways of making players happy, but there certainly aren't any more rouge boosters. The things Saban would do to that one poor soul that decides to fawk up...
