Here’s how Georgia’s passing attack is being defended since the Tennessee game:
“When we had so many guys, it opened up some stuff for me, especially over the middle of the field,” Lynch said. “You guys could see that. I was getting the ball more downfield. Now they don’t necessarily have to play two-deep, because they don’t have two guys screaming down the seam on both sides. I think the coaches are doing a good job to try to get us involved. But again, it’s the coverages. It’s how Aaron reads. There’s one where I was wide-open down the field and probably would have scored on, but Aaron’s progression was to take the sure thing. …
“I think they’re allowed to take away the middle of the field, for one. And two, they know that Conley’s been so productive for us, they can double him inside more, make it more difficult for him, disrupt his game.”
Add to that an offensive line that’s played inconsistently and a running game keyed by two true freshmen (one of whom has coughed up a key fumble in each of the last two games) and that’s a recipe for struggling. Can they do a better job of adapting to the new conditions? If not, we’d better hope Bennett and Conley show up in Jax.
