Saban slip of the tongue

Postby onepunch » Fri Mar 25, 2005 5:30 pm

I know, like I've never made a mistake talking about someone, but I thought this was worth noting.

"Well, we don't really have a depth chart right now," Saban said. "We've never coached these guys. We've never been on the field. Everybody wants to know who the starting this is and the starting that is. I mean, basically we're going to give Jay Fielder every opportunity to be our quarterback. That's all I ever said about that. And we want to work very hard to develop him."

Which is going to be difficult, given that Fiedler, the Dolphins starter for most of the past five seasons, signed as a backup with the Jets earlier this month.

I know he meant Feely, but a coach needs to be a little more careful. He needs to get his players to buy into his plan and win them over with trust. Messing up their names doesn't help. I know, I'm making too much of this, but how do you feel if someone forgets your name? Something to think about.

That was smooth, Nick. Now he is going to lose the confidence of Feely..

Haha, nice screw up Nicky. That'll really build up Feeley's confidence. Saban better get his act together before the draft, or you never know who they will end up drafting.
