A lot has been made of this year’s version of the Alabama offense. It has been a little inconsistent at each position group and the overall performance has not lived up to the Alabama standard.
I think it is easy to forget about all of the talent that is no longer in Tuscaloosa from last season’s national championship team. With three new starters on the offensive line, new running back(s), new wideouts, and a new quarterback, it should be no surprise that it has taken some time for the offense to find its groove.
Saturday night against Southern Miss saw Alabama’s most balanced performance of the 2021 season. The offense totaled 394 passing yards and 212 rushing yards.
I know it was Southern Miss, but for this team, it is more about the players understanding their roles and then performing at a high level. This offense will just get better and better each week.
