WATCH: Alabama WRs play “rock, paper, scissors” to decide pass routes

It’s a shame that Saban never lets these guys have any fun.

On Saturday, reporter Olivia Whitmire caught a curious moment between Jerry Jeudy and Devonta Smith, where it appeared that they were playing a game of “rock, paper, scissors.”

When Henry Ruggs III was asked about the moment, he confirmed the game and his answer is hilarious.

There you have it, folks. All of the receivers are trained in every position, and they know which pass route is going to the house. When Julio Jones, Amari Cooper and then Calvin Ridley were in Tuscaloosa we talked about enjoying each as a rare individual talent, but Alabama has never had a receiving corps this loaded, and they get Tua Tagovailoa as the trigger man to boot.

In fact, I’m not sure that they’ve ever had a position group this loaded. The 2015 defensive line comes to mind, along with the 2012 offensive line and the 2011 secondary. What do you think, is this the best group in Tide history?

In any case, enjoy this group, folks, and let’s see how many records they can get.

Roll Tide.
