American college football coach, and the current head football coach of the University of Alabama, Nick Saban isn't happy with what they are saying about Tide players entering NFL.
In simple words, “Nick Saban is upset” He is pierced by the perception in NFL circles that ‘his players 'head to the next level with too much wear and tear.’

“When you talk to NFL teams, none of them ever say that to me,” Saban told Brock Huard and Mike Salk of ESPN 710 in Seattle, via NFL.com. “I don’t know where that came from. Eddie Lacy comes out and is rookie of the year as a running back. Where’s the wear and tear? We had 45 guys on NFL rosters last year, which is more than any other college team, so where’s the wear and tear? I don’t see it. Dr. [Lyle] Cain and Dr. [James] Andrews are our team doctors who deal with a lot of NFL players.”
“They monitor what we do with our players. I don’t think this is factual at all, and I resent the fact that anybody in the NFL, with the access we give them, the things we do to try to help them . . . that anyone would make a statement like that and hurt our program, if it were true. I don’t get that. I have heard people in the media say that before, but I haven’t heard anybody in the NFL actually say that.”
