All Hail JPW
So, John Parker Wilson's mediocrity to this point finally earned him Preseason All-SEC Honors as Third Team QB. Although, he hasn't played like an All-SEC qb, his stats are not too far behind Second-Teamer Matthew Stafford, who some people think is a dark horse in the Heisman Trophy sweepstakes. So, go figure. I think this could be John Parker's Chris Leak year, meaning he can make all Bama fans think twice about bad-mouthing him for the past two years. On the other hand, it could be his Reggie Ball year, meaning that he could finish his career at Bama having never beaten his major rival. Hopefully, he'll manage the game and win a few more games this season, rather than toss costly picks or commit fumbles that result in losses.
Other Bama players making the Preseason All-SEC team were gargantuan left tackle and future top-five draft pick Andre Smith ( 1st team, duh), underrated db Rashad Johnson (2nd team), speedy rb Terry Grant (3rd team), linebacker Rolando McClain (2nd team), senior center Antoine Caldwell (2nd team),return specialist, db Javier Arenas (2nd team, though I would take him over Brandon James any day), and kicker Leigh Tiffin (3rd team).
