Considering how much our linebackers struggled this year I don’t think it’s a great idea to put more of them out there and reduce the number of Larry Johnson coached athletes on the field.  I fully expect Coach Johnson to have a group of terrific DE’s next year.  They won’t be as deep but I think we’ll be effective as ever.

Patterson may well win them a few extra games against mediocre teams but they will continue to lose to good ones until they fix their offensive line.  There are 5 teams on their schedule that will likely beat them unless they get better there.  They try to play smash mouth football but they don’t have the most important component necessary to win that way.  It’s never gotten better and I don’t see how it will unless they make changes.

I didn’t read the entire OP but I would be lying if I didn’t think about the 2016 Playoff and Oklahoma 2017 last night. Why not try a new QB when the offense clearly wasn’t moving and we kept banging our heads against the wall with JT struggling.  What could have Haskins/Burrow done in that situation?  How could it be worse?  We saw Haskins come in and the offense immediately took off and that was with base/safe play calling.  It’s hard for a defense to adjust to a new QB and Saban made the ballsy call to bench a 25-2 starter and take that risk when the chips were down.  I hate them right now but I have to give him credit.

No.  Four is enough.  If we go to eight it’ll start to turn into the NCAA basketball tournament which ruins the regular season for the most part.  2 and 3 loss teams will be vying for the title when historically that kept you away from the national title in college football.  It was a weird year...there was no good choice for #4 and unfortunately we got passed over.
