Beware SEC: Alabama is an angry, bloodthirsty team

Source: al.com, by Joseph Goodman

*****

There might have been better football teams at Alabama over the last 10 years -- it's too early for any of that talk -- but this one ... this one plays with a focused rage that is beautiful to watch, and frightening. There is blood in Alabama's eyes on every play, and at every moment.

This team is replaying the final, gut-wrenching score of January's national championship loss to Clemson every single snap.

The Crimson Tide defeated Ole Miss 66-3 on Saturday at Bryant-Denny Stadium, and it wasn't so much a contest as it was an extinguishing of souls. Through two games of its SEC schedule, Alabama has outscored opponents 125-3.

At the heart of Alabama's burning fire of pain are players like defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick is your favorite football player's favorite football player. He plays every position in the secondary, and he's one of the best players in the country.

"At the end of last season, we didn't finish," Fitzpatrick said. "I've been saying don't let them breathe. Don't let them have any moments to relax. Don't take any play off. Because it's all about us finishing and dominating the whole game from the first quarter all the way to the last."
