Thoughts on Tua
Everyone seems to think this Tua kid is the second coming. He played well and made some good throws off the bench, but is he really all that? He threw a really bad INT and looked very confused at times. To me he looked exactly like Hurts but with a little better arm. That last TD pass...I could have completed that. The WR was wide open. He had that crazy scramble where he should have been sacked for about a 10 yard loss that might have completely changed the game. If the WR hadn't been so wide open he might not have completed that last TD and they would have been 3rd and very long and out of field goal range in OT (because he got sacked on first down). Seems to me that although he did well, if not for a couple of miracle plays Bama would have lost and nobody would be talking about Tua.
Don't get me wrong. He played remarkably well for a TF coming off the bench...but I didn't see anything that was really special.
