Pluses and Minuses for Jalen and Tua as Alabama’s Starting QB
When Alabama rolls into Atlanta for SEC Media Days, one of the primary discussion points will involve the future of Alabama's quarterback position.
Jalen Hurts has started 28 consecutive games dating back to 2016 with the Crimson Tide winning 26 of his starts.
On the flip side, sophomore Tua Tagovailoa has not started a game but had a second half for the ages against Georgia with three touchdown passes including the game winning 41-yard touchdown strike to Devonta Smith on 2nd and 26 in overtime.
Even though Saban will most likely not name a starter until the week of the season opener, Tagovailoa has been the odds on favorite to assume the starting role for many Alabama fans.
To wrap up the week, former Alabama fullback Martin Houston weighed the various strengths and weaknesses that he sees in either Hurts or Tagovailoa as a starter.
The former Crimson Tide fullback weighed various factors that will go into Saban's final decision including the ability to throw the football and limit turnovers.
