Simpson and Buchner are mobile, too.Oh I agree with you 100% there. And I cannot personally answer that question because I didn't even really pay attention to A-Day nor have I heard anything out of practice. I just think Saban wants a guy that has the ability to get out of a situation. Hurts, Tua, and Bryce were all mobile to very mobile quarterbacks and could get out of trouble and we saw a lot of success with them.
If we had the receivers to just blow past everyone or experienced route runners, a pocket passer like Mac will suffice since a guy like him was very intelligent and know where to get the ball to and quickly get it there. I think we have talented receivers, but young receivers that may get a pocket passers head knocked off.
The point is his passing isn't up to Bama standard yet. Look at Anthony Richardson. He can run, but can't throw to save. Milroe had an opportunity to grab the job in the spring and he didn't.But Milroe ain't close in any other category, and those are the important ones.
You can only run so much. At some point you gotta pass.
The problem isn't arm "talent." It's touch, accuracy, decision-making, and ball security. He's clearly the third best option at this point.Look at Hurts. With a line, he will be better. Him and Bryce were under constant pressure last year. Y'all act like Milroe is a middle school quarterback. Dude has more athleticism and ability than all of us combined, so it's almost comical how he's being discounted to QB3 with "no arm" talent. Bryce received all the attention and reps the last three years, even while he was backup. Milroe getting more attention and focus will develop him.
But Milroe ain't close in any other category, and those are the important ones.
