Fran Tarkenton scolds AJ McCarron

This is pretty hilarious.

AJ McCarron has a pretty inflated view of himself, and that came across when he criticized the current Alabama team by saying it didn’t have the leadership the team had last year (that would be himself, AJ McCarron). He also made some comments about Nick Saban “handcuffing” the offense.

The great Fran Tarkenton reacted with a classic rant about McCarron:

“A.J. McCarron- he needs to be quiet,” Tarkenton said on Jox 94.5-FM’s The Opening Drive. “He was so fortunate to play in that program. He’s an average quarterback at best. He couldn’t have played anywhere else but Alabama and to make any kind of comment is just disrespectful. He shouldn’t have made it and he should keep his mouth shut, praise Saban and Alabama for the rest of his life.”

Does anyone disagree with that?

Tarkenton is one of the ex-players who says what’s on his mind and doesn’t sugar-coat things. He’ll tell you most modern players are using HGH, which is why players are so huge these days and why defensive ends are running 4.5 40s.

As for McCarron he backtracked of course, and he’s be wise to heed Tarkenton’s advice.

Katherine Webb shines in SI swimsuit issue

Alabama’s domination of Notre Dame in the National Championship game didn’t offer much to remember, other than the lovely Katherine Webb of course, who became an instant celebrity after Brent Musberger got all excited when she was spotted in the crowd as AJ McCarron’s girlfriend.

Naturally she parleyed that fame into a great bikini spread in the new SI swimsuit issue, and you can see her showing off her pics as she attends a party with other SI swimsuit supermodels at Marquee Nightclub.

Alabama crushes Notre Dame; Katherine Webb steals the show

Yes, the game sucked, but Miss Alabama Katherine Webb became an instant sensation when the cameras identified her in the stands as AJ McCarron’s girlfriend. Brent Musberger was immediately smitten by this Southern beauty, which led to a series of hilarious tweets as people tried to find something fun to occupy their time during this epic beat down. This one was my favorite:
