Photos: Outtakes from Alabama QB AJ McCarron’s Sports Illustrated cover shoot

Alabama Crimson Tide, SEC

AJ McCarron graced the cover of this week’s issue of Sports Illustrated. Executive editor L. Jon Wertheim wrote a story chronicling the Crimson Tide quarterback’s legacy in the state, begging the question: Is the two-time BCS champion underrated nationally?

But we’re not here to talk about that. We’re here to talk about something far more important. Only one picture was selected for the cover, but as with all photo shoots, way more than one shot was taken. What follows are some of the better outtakes from McCarron’s SI photo session. If a picture is worth a thousand words, just how many words should Paul Finebaum devote to how elite McCarron’s photo game is? (All photos are by Al Tielemans/SI.)

Let's see how well he plays in the midwest in December.  Wisconsin has 2 starting QBs. These southern boys shrivel up in the cold. I'm so not impressed. Let's see 'em play Ohio State in the Meadowlands in January. There's a reason Big 10 players play on Sunday.

Last one would have been a great cover! :-)


It's been years since I was in there, but I assume that's Rama Jama's?
