Alabama coach Nick Saban told me that his QB, AJ McCarron, is capable of bigger numbers. "[This year] we had a really good offensive line, running backs," Saban said. "We trust AJ. We feel we can have a really good passing game. Maybe next year." ... Ravens QB Joe Flacco told me the Ray Lewis we see on Sunday isn't the same person during the week. "He's a pretty relaxed guy," Flacco said. "That's who I've gotten to know. He has the ability to turn it up on the game field." ... Fox's Troy Aikman is concerned about Robert Griffin III's long-term health. "I think it's naive if we all point to Adrian Peterson and say [Griffin will] be fine," Aikman told me. "We don't know that." ... MLB Network's Peter Gammons thinks Hall of Fame voters should wait if they plan to vote for Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens because the induction ceremony would be so negative. "I don't think it's a bad thing if we step back," Gammons told me. "It could be embarrassing. The majority of Hall of Famers would not show up. It would be extremely divisive."
