So you are our OC for this game. You know a couple of things about Alabama and their defense besides the fact that they are really fast and very talented, likely the best defense we will face this year. You know that Saban defensively is of the Bellichick school, which means that he comes into the game with a mission of taking away the thing that you want to do most, and making you do the things that you don't really want to do. You also know that Bama is replacing a few starters with very talented, but inexperienced replacements that have certainly focused on stopping Denard and the run (the thing we want to do most) in the prep for this game. And you know that Bama succeeded at completely shutting down LSU, who wanted to run the ball and option in the championship game. And lastly, you know that last year, against the most aggressive pressure oriented defenses you faced (MSU, Va Tech) you struggled mightily.
Having said that, you know that this is a new year and that your QB is one year better, and your running game is one year better (if Fitz plays, if not, perhaps not), and your offense in its second year should be better and more comfortable and more capable overall. (Disclaimer: Borges knows more than this, but as fans most of us don't).
So knowing this, what would you do Saturday on offense? What would you emphasize?
