07:24 AM ET 10.11 | Alabama's future was on full display during the second half of last week's game against Georgia State, particularly with Derrick Henry, Chris Black and Reuben Foster -- but also with quarterback Blake Sims. "He has improved to a large degree as a passer," [head coach Nick Saban] said. "His judgment has improved as a passer and I think he has to continue to have confidence in his ability to pass and know that he doesn't have to make plays with his feet all the time, which I think this last game helped him in that regard." Reading between the lines and watching what happened inside the lines of Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday, this was Sims taking a giant leap ahead of the pack in the competition to be Alabama's starting quarterback in 2014.

Coach Saban "The next starting QB at Bama-rama will be JK. He has some work to do, but his undeniable faith that the extra money in everyone's account was a banking error and not payments makes me want him as our spokesman! Any turnovers and bad breaks can be voided with those same "bank errors" occurring in the officials accounts."

Suttle way of saying "we don't want no stinking version of a Johnny Manziel at BAMA."

Saban knows what he's doing.

And why you guys picking on JK so much lately?

Blake Sims has come a long way. But, I tend not to worry about next year. I worry about this year.

Wake up. You're dreaming again.

It will be a moral victory, much like Dallas Cowboys last Sunday.

I know a lot of guys don't like the NFL countdown show, but I kind of like it. I guess because I have no skin in the game and they have no real reason to talk about my team, whether it is good or bad.

They were pretty brutal about the Cowboys. Cris Carter - "Tom (jackson), how well did you play in your Superbowl?" Tom Jackson - "I had a pretty good game." Cris - "Who remembers that?" Tom Jackson - "No one because we lost."

JK, LUS ...

After watching CFB all day on Saturdays I'm just bored with NFL games ... even Cowboys which I grew up a huge fan of!
