In any reasonable world, this is struggling:
For starters, the offensive line play was inconsistent throughout the game. After the first drive, Lambert struggled to find time in the pocket, and the running game went nowhere. After his 3-for-3 start, Lambert went 4-for-9 for the remainder of the first half. Even worse, Georgia managed just 10 yards the remainder of the half, and all 10 of which came in the second quarter.
So is this.
Georgia was just 2-of-10 in third-down situations. Both of those conversions came in the first quarter, with Georgia going 0-for-7 from the second quarter on.
If you think about it, you might remember your contribution to the night.
Part of the problem was that Georgia’s average yards to go on third downs was 7.2. But Georgia still had five third-and-short situations and managed to convert just one. Overall, it was where Lambert struggled the worst, too, going 2-for-8 for 10 yards. Of Lambert’s nine incompletions, six were on third down.
Georgia is now 119th nationally in third down conversions. That’s bad enough, but what makes it worse is that it’s compiled that mark even though two of its last three opponents rank 68th and 117th in defensive third down conversions.
So, yeah, dude, you’re struggling.
