Don’t think. You can only hurt the ball club.

Easily my favorite thing from Jake Rowe’s excellent analysis of a couple of plays from last Saturday is this:

This is where you see Chubb’s instincts and greatness at work. I asked him specifically about this play on Tuesday and he told me that he couldn’t remember what he was thinking at the time that he made this cut, so that just confirms what we already know. He has tremendous instincts for the position.

True ‘dat.

  1. It is easy to second guess where an RB should have gone while watching replays, but it doesn’t seem to be as many “he should have gone” moments with Chubb as there are with a lot of other RBs.

      There was one play against Louisville in the bowlgame, where he could have cut back and got more yards. But tbh, that is all I can remember.


  2. I love this stuff. I can’t remember how we survived without this sort of analysis (2005 never forget).

    I like watching Mister Chubb run through defenders just as much as cutting away from defenders.

      I love seeing defenders standing around in the fourth quarter not wanting anymore of Georgia’s running game. Remember (if you’re old) the four horsemen? That was a running game..Hampton, Henderson, Tate and Ellis. Ellis was a great, great blocker. These four guys just pounded defenses into submission with a great running game.
      May it be again.

    Best title of the week! And there have been some doozies. As usual, thanks for your efforts to make the time between games enjoyable, Sir!


  5. How does everyone feel about the o-line at this point? What about Kublanow’s move and Wynn filling in?

    Thanks again to Seth for his analysis for us in the “Football for Dummies” class. Just think, except for Michel, there’s not much tendency for our RBs to stop, reverse course and just run away from people (but suspect we are going to see some of that done purposefully more often in the near future). That’s a big vote of confidence in the O-line as well.

    They certainly dominated ULM, which wasn’t bad, the 93 yard drive totally on the ground was impressive. But Vandy did seem to confuse and stifle them pretty badly. We will certainly find out when the Tide comes rollinginto Athens, that front 7 is scary good. My best guess is they are above average, but not excellent. If we were really mixing in a variety of plays we might have a better idea.

      It’s hard for 6 to block 8 or 9 no matter how good they are. We need to establish some sort of legit passing threat to empty out the box a little.
