Cory Brinson’s analysis of each of Lambert’s twelve throws in the ULM game is worth a look. In particular, I found his conclusion spot on:
So, what is my take? Is Greyson absolutely perfect? No. But, like Coach Richt said, every throw had a purpose. I’d love to see him concentrate on his footwork and really get that trust with his OL. He has some habits that he has to break, but trust will build. We’ll definitely see the playbook open a little more as the season progresses, but, for now, definitely liking what we are seeing from the QB position.
There’s a season’s worth of bad coaching and bad habits Lambert has to work out of his system, and that won’t happen overnight. Most of his mechanical problems can be worked on and improved, although I’m not sure there’s much you can do about the speed of his release, given his frame size. It’s why he needs to play as much as he can, even if Georgia rolls out to comfortable leads against weaker opposition.
The good thing is that he’s got an awareness of what he’s supposed to be doing out there and that will only get better as he grows more familiar with the playbook. His surrounding cast doesn’t hurt his chances, either.
