Which NFL teams could Alabama beat this year?

Recommended Posts

Alabama has the best college football team $$$ can buy... including its players!  Don't for a minute think those boys aren't aren't being paid under the table.  Putting that aside, which NFL squads could Alabama realistically beat this year?  And why?

None.  Alabama is a great college team. But they couldn’t beat a NFL team.  

I agree. There's a big difference in the level of talent at the college and pro levels. Only the absolute best college players make it in the NFL. Alabama has several great players, but not enough to beat an NFL team, not even the lowly Raiders.

Zero. Even the piece of shit Raiders would roll the Tide.

I’ve casually thought, oh yeah Bama could beat the Raiders. But then you remember that NFL players spend 24/7 training.  Almost all NFL teams are of near equal talent with only a few key players separating the good from bad teams.  The speed and physical development of NFL players outstrips any college player.  The Raiders would beat the Tide 63-0.

I bet Bama beats up on my wac ass Cowboys...

I’ve always thought an elite college team could beat NFL teams...

People who have always believe there’d be no chance are delusional; hell, that 2011 BSU team could have beaten an NFL team that year....

I’m serious, you take an elite college unit and line it up against a dysfunctional NFL team - there’d be upsets..

Might as well say no mid-major could ever beat an SEC team..

The game has changed so much since then.  

You're right, the game has changed a LOT since then. Back in those days NFL players held second jobs during the rest of the year and only trained and practiced football during the season. The pro game is totally different now and there's no comparison anymore. Even KC Chiefs star QB Len Dawson used to smoke cigarettes on the bench back in the 70's and wasn't worried about being in great shape.

Exactly.  And that’s why Alabama wouldn’t stand a chance.
