I can’t believe nobody’s taken notice of this.
Georgia Passing QBR: A. Murray 82.2 H. Mason 94.0
QBR – it’s not just for G-Day anymore.
Filed under ESPN Is The Devil, Georgia Football
And Hut did it with the second-string offense!
Well, not initially…but I also noticed Hut found Jonathon Rumph, which is kinda ah interesting?
How is that even possible? Murray had higher completion percentage, higher YPA, more total yards, more TDs, the same number of INTs. ???
One must not question the efficacy or noble intentions of EsPN, kind sir! They have free reign to just go ahead and make up their own sh*t.
facts dont do what you want them to.
N. Marshall 3/7 35 5.0 1 1 99.6
Ladies and gentlemans, it’s QBR!
That is pure bunkum…and furthermore a newfangled approbation of the Scrambler-as-QB.
“Approbation” damn Lone…I git all giddy when you talk dirty.
So this means Mason starts next week, right?
QBR is an ESPN creation that is supposed to be a more valid measure than the old QB ratings. This result goes to show how bogus this is. Of course I’m hoping Mason has a great season next year but his QBR in mop up time when the other team is soundly beaten is no indication to get excited about.
While there is a lot of truth in your comments, it would be logical for UGA fans to draw some confidence from Mason’s performance yesterday. We will soon lose, perhaps, the best QB we have ever had at UGA. UGA has many pieces of this explosive offense (pre-injuries) returning for 2014, I am greatly comforted by seeing the poise Mason brings to the table, his knowledge of the offense/system, and his throwing ability. Doesn’t mean there might not be a falloff or other issues but not many programs could lose an Aaron Murray and have someone of Mason’s ability ready to step in. If Mason doesn’t win the starting job, that means we will have an excellent QB to have beaten him out. Good times ahead.
This debate is getting old. Ramsey clearly looks to be the best QB in pre-game warm ups. He should start against Auburn. Not sure what the coaches are watching.
See people….^^^This^^^ is how you comment brilliantly on this blog. Well played Sir!
What debate Dawgaholic? No one here is advocating that we have a QB controversy. I think the discussion is what did we learn, if anything, from Mason’s one appearance as he sits in the wings and waits his turn. My point was he looks very capable if needed. The evidence is light, but from what we saw and what we hear from practice, Mason is capable if called on. I saw nothing to dispute that but it was a small sample, at home, against a 1A program. As for next year, I have no idea between HM and the “newbies” but if he is the base line, I like our chances of having another very good offense in 2014.
Mason should be a more than adequate replacement for Murray next season. He may even be able to put the team on his shoulders and win a game or two next year if we need him to. Hopefully he doesn’t catch Joe Cox disease and start throwing it to the other team as much as he throws it to ours.
Wait a damn minute! The problem with the team in 2009 was defense, not offense. That is why 3 defensive coaches including the DC got fired after the season. The offense scored plenty of points that year. Joe Cox, a QB who only started 1 season, “put the team on his shoulders” (as you term it) and personally won at least 3 games that were absolutely lost without him–4 if you count the ’06 Colorado game where he came off the bench. Joe Cox was/is a DGD!!!!
Thanks man, you saved me some cyber ink.
I agree with what you said but joe cox made some bad decisions too. He had 15 interceptions in 2009, the most by a Georgia qb in cmr’s head coaching career.
Mason does, at least superficially and against far inferior competition, seem a cool customer. With a more gritty Defense and Gurley (+Marshall) ’14 may be a great year. Though, again, there is the nagging reality of always looking ahead for that “magic” season.
Hell, Lone…we are Dawg fans, looking, hoping, wishing for that magic season part of our collective DNA.
I can visualize the film room all last year and this year and the discussion that took place between the two QBs, Murray and Mason, with Bobo..and Richt..chipping in. It had to be…make that continuing..has to be a graduate degree in SEC QBing. In the ensuing months, spring practice, Mason’s own summer program, fall practice…Mason’s development should be put thru the wringer. Add his maturity and the mind games he has lived through over the years and I think we’ll be happy with Mason’s performance. I look forward to next year and the completion with all the experience we’re returning.
Qbr is a better measure of pro performance where teams are more even. It gives preference to the fourth qtr and other “clutch” opportunities
So scoring a td with 5minutes or less in the game is more valuable than scoring on your opening drive…all else equal
And EsPN is a bogus creation by peeps that would like you to believe that they understand sports, in the abstract. All they/corporate media know is how to relentlessly market junk which most Americans (me sometimes included) shovel up by the yard.
On that pic he looked like he was staring down the WR as if the WR was a Victoria’s Secret model. Glad that happened in an actual game situation so he can see it on film and get it corrected.
Also, nice to see a bit of a rapport developing between Mason and Rumph already…once JR figures out what he is doing out there he will be a great threat with the ball in his hands. Throw in MM26, JSW (after the Clemson suspension) and the rest of the bunch and we got the potential for some big offensive numbers. The only question is who steps up on the O-line other than Theus and Boss?
2 pics, both learning experiences…at least that is what coahces and QBs say. What do they say after a reception? “I learned that in practice, but no the INTs. During a game I learn not to throw that, but I will throw another so I can learn not to throw another. Now how many TDs or INTs will Nick Marshall throw?
You learn much more in your valleys than on your mountain tops.
Will and Muckbeast live in a place where, impossibly, there is a valley but no mountains. Ergo, according to your logic…
Ha! Scratch that, I got it reversed…that’ll teach me to be snarky.
How high are tackles and tight ends in this recruiting class? Amazing how good Bama’s O line has become from their first game against VT to last night’s game with LSU. Their zone blocking is very good. They put a hat on players and keep it there.
Ah Will…envy is a sin, or so I am told.
Granted they recruit well but there has to be something to a system that continually develops that talent to the level that Bama does. Offensive and defensive lines lose top performers but someone steps in and performs like his predecessor. And they change coaches all the time. Is it the leadership of Saban? Again, is it a well developed system that it is easy to slide players..and coaches..into and have them achieve excellence on an annual basis? It works whatever it is and you have to credit Saban with his leadership. And, folks, he’s not the devil incarnate…did you see him jump into his QB’s arms like a happy Daddy? And his players respect him..it’s all not fear. Is there lessons there the Dawgs can learn?
Coveting…Envy all are Thou shalt nots!
Don’t know how he missed this, but that’s the kind of senseless stat Skeptic Dawg jumps all over.
