I was hard on Coker in the beginning but once he was benched in the Ole Mis game and then came back in...he was a different guy. He had an edge to him. I enjoyed watching his toughness. He made big time throws in the championship game that we would not have won without. He wasn't perfect or even great but he made clutch plays in big games. Coker needs to be remembered as an Alabama great imo.
That crater faced sum bitch had a bazooka for an arm.
And a voice like Elvis....
I always thought he sounded like Hank Hill
Ummm - compare Elvis and Coker....
Absolutely. He was who we needed him to be when it mattered most. He also knew when to call it quits.
I really feel bad for Blake Sims.
Why? Sims is still playing with the bucs. I'd do practice squad for a few years and get that money.
I still remember that play against auburn where he rolled out of the pocket and threw a damn rocket in mid-air to Ardarius Stewart
After Dominick Jackson blocked no one on the play, as was standard
When he threw that ball I said out loud “COKER WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING!!” And by the time I got to “doing” Stewie cake into the frame wide open in the end zone. That was probably the fastest I’ve ever gone from rage to joy. Second fastest is obviously 1st and 10 to 2nd and 26
He was great in the playoffs
His postseason stats were god-like.
The word coming out of the people in the know at the time was that Coker had the flu for the Ole Miss game and that's why he didn't start.
