Of course they can't.. There's only a select 3 or 4 guys on Bama that will even translate to the pros. Most of the team won't make it to the NFL and if they do they won't be that good. Hell, just look at their quarterback.. He's a second string QB in the NFL if he's lucky.

In the NFL, everyone is there because they pretty much dominated the college level. Every single player was good enough to compete with the superior athletes that play in the league. Not to mention that "college all stars" don't always translate into the professional ranks and you'd wind up with a Tim Tebow or Ken Dorsey here and there and everyone on Alabama SURELY isn't going to go pro. Even then, the top college guys bust all the time. Even the NFL busts were amazing in college and would likely walk all over them. We're talking college guys against proven NFL veterans for the most part? Please. As soon as I figured out that they were being serious, all I would've done is:

Yep..this.

It's a whole different level the NFL

No way in hell any nfl team would lose to a top college team. Even a great team like Bama only had what 7 or 8 pro level talented guys? there are 50 guys who are pro level on any given nfl team.

I don't believe it for a second. Of course Bama fans would think so though.

But for the sake of history:

They used to do a charity game back in the day, so take that for what it's worth, but it was always between the NFL Champion and the College All Stars. Take a look at some of the results. Again, these were charity games but still interesting.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago..._All-Star_Game

The New York Giants also played the Notre Dame All Stars in 1930. I think it was like 24-0. The 4 Horsemen played but they had to be a little older by then.

Re: College and Pro Football: People Understand the differences?

Interesting for sure. The college game was actually more popular than the pro game in that era. That's not an actual reason why the All Stars would win, just throwing that out there.

It was a different game back then. Notice how the NFL begins to dominate and not a lose a game by the mid 60s? They stopped before '78 when the game really changed to its modern form we see now. The disparity in speed and complexity has only increased since '78 as well.

SAMMY BAUGH won the first game for the College All Stars. Not surprising since he was about as good as a QB could be and was decades ahead of the game. Baugh would still own modern football.

I'm the biggest Bama fan in the world with all the bias that goes with it, but not for one second do I think last year's team would've beaten the Jaguars or the Chiefs or any other scrub-ass NFL team.

No way we could beat a NFL team, and yes I still have my crimson colored glasses on. Alabama are amateurs, NFL teams are Professionals.
