There will be a lot of eyes on former Alabama Crimson Tide QB AJ McCarron this week at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, especially since the announcement late Thursday evening that he will participate fully, including throwing. With that, I’m sure we’ll hear a lot more comparisons, which have been rampant to begin with given his collegiate success.
With the way Alabama dominated, one constant comparison that we’ve heard is that of McCarron to New England Patriots three-time Super Bowl winning QB, Tom Brady. With the way both manage their offenses, it makes a bit of sense.
On Friday while speaking to the media at the Combine, McCarron made his own comparison, and it was between the Patriots franchise and the Alabama program he’s coming from.
AJ McCarron just said that “New England is almost like the Alabama of pro football.”

All things considered, McCarron isn’t necessarily wrong. With the way both generally dominate, it’s easy to make that distinction.
