Watch: NFL analyst breaks down Rashaan Evans’ role in critical goal line stand vs. Patriots

New, 18 comments

Oh, to have had Rashaan in Tuscaloosa this season.

NCAA Football: CFP National Championship Game-Alabama vs Georgia Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Former NFL player and current NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger frequently posts film study on Twitter, and today he chose Rashaan Evans making three consecutive tackles as the Tennessee Titans shut down the New England Patriots on the goal line. Take a look.

Money quote: “I just think Alabama people hate Georgia people.”

The first thing that comes to mind is that Rashaan is a bona fide NFL superstar. He has always had plenty of athleticism, but that innate ability to diagnose and then finish the tackle is going to make him a ton of money. The second thing that comes to mind is just how much Alabama missed having such a veteran LB in the middle this season. With Dylan Moses returning along with Christian Harris and Shane Lee having a year under their belts, perhaps we will get to see this type of play in 2020.

In any case, way to show out Rashaan.

Roll Tide.
