Vikings Hall of Famer Fran Tarkenton rips A.J. McCarron up for comments on Alabama

Fran Tarkenton is not a fan of AJ McCarron’s. Following the former Alabama quarterback’s comments about the current state of the Crimson Tide program, the Pro Football Hall of Famer upbraided the three-time BCS champion during an interview on WJOX-FM in Birmingham Wednesday.

“Oh gosh, it’s AJ McCarron,” Tarkenton said. “Did he go to class? Did he make the league or not? He needs to be quiet. He was so fortunate to play in that program. He’s an average quarterback at best. He played fine, but he couldn’t have played anywhere else but Alabama. The 1975 NFL MVP continued, “To make a comment like that is just disrespectful. He should keep his mouth shut and praise Saban and Alabama for the rest of his life.”
