LSU TE On Bama’s Linebackers:

In a game of this magnitude, trash talk and bulletin board material aren’t likely to pack too much punch.  After all, if players aren’t already up for this Saturday’s #1 versus #2, LSU-Alabama matchup, no amount of chatter and chirping is going to charge them up.

That said, it’s still news that one of Saturday’s combatants has opened his mouth and fired a bit of an insult at his opponents.

Enter LSU tight end Deangelo Peterson.  He believes he can have a big impact on this weekend’s showdown.  Here’s why:

“I think I can play a big role because I feel like their linebackers can’t guard me one-on-one, and I don’t think their safeties can either.  If the ball comes my way, I’ll make an opportunity with it…

They’re slow.  They’re big.  I don’t think they can run with me.  I feel like I can get open against their linebackers.”

That’s pretty big talk for a guy who has 12 catches for 137 yards and a single touchdown on the season.  The senior has 33 catches for his career.

If I were an Alabama linebacker, that article/quote would be taped to the locker. May be a long night for Mr. Peterson. Going to be one heck of a game

'Bama's linebackers are NOT slow...they just look slow. -Jarius Wright, Arkansas WR

I remember a guy by the name of Lamar Thomas that said pretty much the same thing about the Alabama secondary some years back. As I recall, a fella by the name of George Teague did a pretty good job of shutting him up...

Ha ha ha. Hightower has a better 40 than him, and is 20lbs heavier. Good luck buddy. Good luck.
