Playing Well vs. Nick Saban Doesn't Guarantee Success

“So what that Deshaun Watson tore up Alabama, that’s not the be-all, end-all.”

With Deshaun Watson’s dazzling numbers against supposed world-beaters Alabama at the top of his résumé, Colin Cowherd thinks it’s dangerous to base your overall opinion on a guy just because he picked apart a Nick Saban defense.

Cowherd mentioned names the likes of Johnny Manziel, Cardale Jones, Chad Kelly, and Drew Tate (vs. Saban's '04 LSU team) as four guys who tore up an elite Saban defense, whom would later never amount to anything in the pros.

Sure, taking down a defense littered with future NFL players is admirable, but don’t get carried away with a performance that has been done before by players who failed to see success on the next level.
