It’s been just over a year that Mac Jones has developed into an all-time great Alabama. A year ago this month he relieved Tua Tagovailoa after his serious injury against Mississippi State. Now the Alabama QB is in serious consideration for the Heisman Trophy.

It’s a journey that hasn’t slipped past SEC Network host Paul Finebaum, who recalled it during his regular appearance on “The Roundtable” on WJOX 94.5 in Birmingham, Alabama.

“A year and three weeks after Tua went down, and Mac Jones slipped in there as his backup, Mac is considered the No. 2 pick for the Heisman at this moment,” Finebaum said. “I will gladly back out of Bryce Young will be the starter by midseason comments because that would encompass me and everyone else in the audience. The Mac Jones run has been beyond comprehension. I don’t know when in Alabama history we’ve seen anything quite like this. Just imagine if he continues this streak and somehow explodes in the championship game and Kyle Trask reverts to where we all thought he was two years ago as a backup, Mac Jones winning the Heisman Trophy, would that be one of the most amazing and shocking stories in Alabama football history.”

Jones has completed 77 percent of his passes for 2,426 yards, 18 touchdowns and three interceptions. He gets another chance in the Iron Bowl this week after last year, when he was 26-for-39 passing for 335 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions.
