CFB National Championship Game: Alabama vs. Clemson - 8pm

arcarsenal : 1/7/2019 6:48 pm
Figured a separate game thread would be a good idea as to not cloud up the draft prospects thread with 300 other posts from other game-related stuff.

I know most of the world is already tired of this matchup. But they're the two best teams, and if the goal is to have the two best teams be left standing at the end, it's happening here.

We can debate the recruitment process and everything else until the cows come home, but that's for another day.

Saban vs. Dabo. Tua vs. Lawrence. Bama vs. Clemson.

Expecting another one to go down to the wire with these teams. They've been on a collision course all year. Now they're here.

Roll Tide, Roll!

Tell me what part of his game is  
Carl in CT : 1/7/2019 9:27 pm : link
Better than average, size, toughness, arm strength, running ability? Wonít make it.

Dumb comment. Heís got a ton of NFL level skills. Injuries are another matter but the guy can play.

And you'll be wrong all 1000 times + however many more times you say it.


I'm not a scout, but Tua's accuracy looks impressive.

Turnovers and the kicking game are going to be Bama's undoing in this one if they can't get going. Going to need a hell of a 2nd half to win.
Iíll give you

Doesnít turn it over but that might be a product of his team.

In blue would be great. He makes plays all the time.
God. I want Trevor Lawrence.

He just threw two picks in a half.

whose helmet is taken/knocked off is BS. The player that knocked it off should be off the field.

He's the same size as Mayfield.

He's very tough. He has plenty of arm strength and accuracy and is elusive but not a scrambler like Hurts.

It doesn't seem like you've spent much time watching him play. You're way off base.
Tua not an NFL QB?  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 1/7/2019 9:29 pm : link
HAHAHAHAHA.

Come on. He's going to be an NFL QB & a very good one @ that.

I like Tua  
Ten Ton Hammer : 1/7/2019 9:29 pm : link
But there's a reason why you let a QB play a few dozen games before making him out to be the best thing ever.

He'll be on the Pats, in the Welker, Amendola, Edelman, Hogan mold.

just went right down the field. Lawrence has plenty of time, and has been accurate.

He's 12-15 for 153 yards and 2 Yes he's thrown a couple of terrible passes but saying that's "struggling" is a bit much coming from the chairman of the Eli Manning cheerleading squad.

When you watch him play live, his velocity and accuracy just are on a different level. When people have talked about seeing the difference in QB's before, I've never really seen it. Once I saw Lawrence, I knew what they meant, and the dude is a freshman!
Also feel (against the norm)

Fromm is also vastly overrated.
If I got to pick one guy as future QB of the Giants

It'd be Lawrence, but I'd be very happy to get Tua, too.

They need a nice answer drive here and go into halftime down one score, and regroup.

I'm not counting them out but I'm surprised with the D. They're gonna have to start bringing some pressure, force some Clemson turnovers or some three and outs.

Lawrence is phenomenal

SFGFNCGiantsFan : 1/7/2019 9:36 pm : link
you told me the Giants go 0-16 in 2020 & had the #1 pick in the '21 draft for Lawrence, I'd take that. I'll take the ignominy of going winless for a season if it means 15 + years of Lawrence as our QB.

Yep. Have to get points on this drive and eat up enough clock that Clemson can't answer before half.

The defense got off to a good start... but then we spotted them a score and have struggled defensively since.

Going to have to get some stops otherwise this ain't going to end well.

MookGiants : 1/7/2019 9:41 pm : link
some warts recently. He's really struggling reading defenses lately.

arcarsenal : 1/7/2019 9:41 pm : link
One of Saban's biggest strengths is his ability to adjust.

Expecting Bama to have a better 2nd half - but if Clemson scores again here, it might be too big a hole.

The defense needs to force a turnover or make a big play in the worst way. Lawrence has tons of confidence now and there's not enough pressure getting in from the edges.
Really feel like Clemson has this...  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 1/7/2019 9:42 pm : link
But then I remember feeling the same in last year's title game & this year's SEC Championship game...

MookGiants : 1/7/2019 9:44 pm : link
Lawrence in 2 years I would absolutely sign for 2 years of total shit. One year of total shit is almost a guarantee anyways.

Shore up the defensive line and offensive line next 2 years and secondary, and then get Lawrence in 2021.

I dont see any way the Giants are a playoff team next year. So to me its just a question of if you would be ok with punting 2020.

Lawrence looks to me like the QB you would build in a lab if you had the ability to build the perfect QB.

Weird tackle on that blitz
