1. Alabama Football quarterback Jalen Milroe quells some doubts

The Jalen Milroe experience will continue for better or for worse against Ole Miss. Milroe is clearly developing on the fly, so Alabama fans will have to deal with the growing pains that accompany that development this season.

With that being said, I think the redshirt sophomore quarterback proves some doubters wrong in this game. What that looks like exactly, I can’t be sure, but Milroe should take the field with an air of confidence after receiving strong words of support from Coach Nick Saban this week.

To be clear, I don’t believe Milroe will alleviate all doubts or play some perfect game. His weaknesses are just as obvious as the strengths that make him such a unique player, and I fully expect him to make some mistakes going forward, just like any young QB.

It is up to Coach Saban and offensive coordinator Tommy Rees to protect Milroe and put him in favorable positions that will help him to succeed based on his skill set.

I believe Milroe is a better passer than he gets credit for, and we have yet to truly see his electric running ability this season. Milroe isn’t Bryce or Mac or Tua, but the national consensus that he is a terrible quarterback is way off base.

This week, Jalen Milroe shows the nation that Alabama Football can be a dangerous team with him under center.
