Fran Tarkenton Rips AJ McCarron’s Skull Open And Shits Down It…Tells Him To “Shut Up And Praise Saban For The Rest Of His Life”
LBS - AJ McCarron made some comments earlier this week about Alabama’s loss to Ole Miss that some have interpretted as disrespectful toward Nick Saban. In short, McCarron speculated that Saban may have put “handcuffs” on offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin during the Ole Miss game. He also said he believes the Tide lack a player who is enough of a leader to settle the team down during games.
To say that former NFL and Georgia quarterback Fran Tarkenton disagrees with McCarron would be a massive understatement. Here’s what Tarkenton had to say during an appearance on WJOX-FM’s “The Opening Drive” in Birmingham Wednesday.
“Oh gosh, it’s AJ McCarron,” Tarkenton said. “Did he go to class? Did he make the league or not? He needs to be quiet. He was so fortunate to play in that program. He’s an average quarterback at best. He played fine, but he couldn’t have played anywhere else but Alabama.
“To make a comment like that is just disrespectful. He should keep his mouth shut and praise Saban and Alabama for the rest of his life.”
Hey McCarron. You just got Tarkenton’ed son! Seriously I couldn’t agree with Fran more, and I’m a big AJ guy. Always respected what he did at Bama. Never thought he got enough credit for the way he ran that team. Always seemed like a nice guy off the field (despite the douchiest of all douche tattoos) who did a lot for the community. And of course respected the hell out of the wife he pulled down. Gave him a lot of love on the blog. But AJ, let’s be honest with each other man. You’re nothing without Saban. You certainly wouldn’t be wearing that Bengals jersey right now if it weren’t for the coaching Saban gave you and the team he put around you and the cache he brought to you. Yes you were talented but you definitely aren’t the “AJ McCarron” you are today without everything Nick Saban did for you. I’d remember that. Am I saying you need to spend the rest of your life on your knees bowing down to him kissing his feet? Yes that’s exactly what I’m saying. I am 100% saying just that.
