Let me see if I can understand this? Bama gives QB's offers, but they are not committable offers, they are more like offers that might lead to a committable offer? We are in the running for Park and Cornwall this year and it seems that Park is in the same category as Lambert was and Cornwell might be able to commit but hasn't? Or is he the same boat too? Also saw or read that Saban wants to look at guys than can run more than his previous QB's have been able to do.
I've only heard of them because of this game where we were down 17-0 and won 18-17 on the last play and the Colin Cowherd rant about them.

Correct. All "offers" are offers to throw in person for CNS. Only once that happens will CNS make a committable offer. Many can look good on tape or in person vs. inferior HS competition. He won't make a true offer until he meets the kid and gets the "warm-n-fuzzy" that the kid has the maturity to handle being the QB at Bama. Not perfect by any means (QB in the OP), but at the very least it pretty much guarantees that we'll always have a QB on the roster that will not single-handedly lose games for us and with an occasional home run (McCarron). Cornwell knows this and seems to not be afraid of the compitition...which is a good sign even if he chooses to go elsewhere.
In short, the recruiting services rankings don't mean squat to CNS. He prefers to do his own evaluations of QB's.

I did follow the thread. You just weren't clear enough in your write-up. If you're going write about Lambert in a thread about Sims, it helps to specify. For the record, we never gave Lambert a commitable offer. So your point is moot anyway...and wrong.
We're very much the same, we have a 3* Rudolph a 4* Park and a 5* Cornwell that we will be happy to have. We should see all of them this week, unless Cornwell gets the Bama offer and pulls the trigger.
