Sims to Get More Playing Time Against North Texas


It is being reported that the quarterback competition between Phillip Sims and AJ McCarron is not over.

Sims reportedly will see more playing time this weekend against the Mean Green of North Texas according to Chase Goodbread of, Coach Saban will use both quarterbacks this weekend.

“We'll continue to work the quarterbacks as we did last week, which was two for one, because we want to continue to develop Phillip,” Saban said. “We'd like to play Phillip if we get opportunities to play him. I do still feel both guys are good quarterbacks and there is some good competition there.”

Saban has said in the past he is not opposed to using a two quarterback system, but one has to wonder if this will be Sims last time to prove himself to the coaching staff.
Sounds like Coach Saban wants to play both, only if they limit or cut down on the mistakes and he isn’t willing to risk this season playing both if it means it may cost them a victory.
McCarron’s play last Saturday impressed the head coach and move have moved him closer to the starting position.

“The thing AJ did in this game is, he managed the game well. He didn't make the bad mistakes,” Saban said. “He made some good throws, and made a couple that he could have made a little better maybe. But he didn't make the bad mistake. There was only one occasion where he probably threw a ball he shouldn't have thrown.”

Phillip Sims more then likely will have to play nearly a mistake free ball game Saturday if he wants to see more playing time in the future.
