Nick Saban Explains What He Looks For at the QB Position [Video]
It's the most important position in sports, and being a quarterback at Alabama is no different. Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban addressed the media Wednesday at SEC Media Days and explained what it takes to play such an important position, especially to play for him at the University of Alabama.
Although statistical production hasn't been a priority for quarterbacks at Alabama, managing the game to a win is one of the most important skills that Saban wants from his signal caller. Looking back on all the QB's since 2007 (John Parker Wilson, Greg McElroy, A.J. McCarron, Blake Sims, and Jake Coker), none of them have been labeled as a "gunslinger" (although you can easily make the argument McCarron had that type of arm talent). They rarely turned the ball over (only 62 total interceptions since Saban's first year in Tuscaloosa, just shy of 9 INT's/season) and helped lead the Tide to four national championships.
