Robert Edwards speaks.

The AJ-C has a nice interview with former Georgia star Robert Edwards, who talks about his new job and his old school.

It sounds like a few of his players may be star struck in practice now and then.

“I also have a lot of friends who are going to come by and teach them something … Takeo Spikes, Hines Ward, and my brother Terrence Edwards.”

He’s got a pretty good grasp of where Georgia stands in the early spring, too.

Q. I know you visited Georgia’s practices last week. What are your thoughts on the team?

A. First of all, the facility that they are building is going to be outrageous. I’m kind of jealous I won’t be a student-athlete and able to experience that … But with the coaches, there was a need to change on the defensive side of the ball. They weren’t getting it done the last couple of years, whether it be the coaches fault or the players not playing up to expectations. I think it was a needed change, and the coach from Dallas will be great addition and he will bring the attitude of a pro-style defense. And he will bring the attitude they have to have every week to be successful. On offense, they have the playmakers. They have to establish them a quarterback, but they have a nice trio of running backs that can compliment each other. The have a tight end who is going to be All-Conference, and probably the best wide reciever in the nation. They just have to find someone to get them the ball. I think the O-line has been banged up the last couple of years. They can’t seem to stay healthy. If they stay healthy, then it will be the key to the success of the offense.

I hope he’s as good an evaluator as he was a running back.

    I like the pro-style defense comment. Something good for Grantham to sell to the 5 star guys, don’t you think?

  3. Both CMR & CMB have a rep for recruiting & developing pro style QBs. Having a pro style O & a pro style D should be a major factor in all recruiting from now on. Just Saying.
