Colin Cowherd: Alabama is “boring” like Walmart, does not care about Derrick Henry’s well-being
Colin Cowherd is back in SEC attack mode.
The FOX Sports radio host used news of AJ McCarron’s starting role in Cincinnati to stir up another southern hubbub.
Alabama quarterbacks are 0-13 in the NFL since 1987, a stat that makes Cowherd “believe the gap has been closed between the SEC” and the rest of the country.
“The quarterback play is unwatchable,” he said Tuesday.
Cowherd went on to express his disgust with the Crimson Tide.
“I find Alabama boring,” he said. “I find Alabama similar to Walmart: They’re big. They’re powerful. They squish mom-and-pops. They’re really their own economy. But they’re bland. They’re vanilla. They use their employees to build their brand, regardless of the employees’ well-being.
“You really think Derrick Henry is better served having 45 carries? You really think that’s great for him? It doesn’t matter. He’s just a replaceable part. He’s not the Heisman winner. He’s the employee of the year.”
Fans in Tuscaloosa, Ala. might want to sell their car radios if Alabama doesn’t get a win against Michigan State in the Cotton Bowl.
