Former DB Antonio Langham Talks Alabama Football Future and Past
On Thursday, former Alabama defensive back Antonio Langham joined Ryan Fowler on The Game to discus both the future of the Crimson Tide and a little bit of his past under Nick Saban.
"He was a darn good coach," Langham told Fowler. "If you didn't have thick skin, you'd probably wan't to fight him everyday at practice."
"I always joke with him and tell him he's a little softer than when I played for him."
More than 20 years after both guys were together on the Cleveland Browns, Saban is still going strong in Tuscaloosa.
"Winning and winning championships gives you that energy, keeps you energized," Langham told Fowler.
"When you're winning like he is and you get the recruits like you want and winning championships, I think I'd stay in it for another 65 and a half."
Looking at Alabama's depth chart defensively, the team has to replace Reuben Foster, Tim Williams, Ryan Anderson, Jonathan Allen, and Dalvin Tomlinson. Langham believes that either Rashaan Evans or Shaun Dion Hamilton could replace Anderson as that next alpha-dog.
Harrison and Anthony Averett have a strong potential to lead the Tide's secondary next season in Langham's opinion. Though Langham believes Minka Fitzpatrick is a great football player. That is why he thinks Fitzpatrick could be moved around to fill another spot.
