Jacob Eason is already better than Todd Gurley.

Hey, he’s thrown more 50-yard passes in ten games than Gurley did his entire career.

Snark aside, it’s a welcome development to see the deep ball once again a part of Georgia’s offense.

    Ok….so I’m not trying to sound stuck on myself…but that is the second article this week that has basically mirrored a comment I made on GTP

    I think it’s worth pointing out that Eason has as many (sic) 50 yard passes in the past two games as Mason and Lambert had in their full two seasons starting.

    In the last two weeks, Jacob Eason has seen more success completing the deep ball than Georgia did in the two seasons before he arrived.

    Anyway…I love this article. Harps on all the things that I think will make us better (Wims/Ridley developing and Eason’s arm strength)

    Going back to the two pass interference calls against UNC that essentially won the game Eason does not mind turning it loose downfield.

    Auburn seemed to be the game where Eason really found his range. Previously he had consistently underthrown his receivers. It obviously wasn’t arm strength, I think it was just getting g enough reps and getting in rhythm during the game. This Eason kid might be pretty good. 😉

  5. Speaking of Gurley, he’s sort of hit a wall this year.

      He has, and my fantasy team has suffered because of it.

      you have no clue! The Rams have the worst Oline in the NFL and a QB who’s terrible. other teams load the box because the Rams have one player, Gurley. Put Todd on the Cowboys with that Oline, and he would have better numbers than Elliott. It’s the same reason why Chubb and Michel were much better last year. we had a much better Oline.

        Looked at his stats and he is averaging more yards per carry but getting less carries so sounds like the Rams are not using him enough.

          Might want to check again.He averaged 4.8 ypc last season and he’s at 3.1 this year.

            Looked at it again and see what you are saying read the chart wrong but he is still getting less carries and that makes a huge difference as you can see this year with Chubb and Michel if you don’t get the touches you can’t get the yards.

              If you aren’t getting yards then you won’t get touches. Works both ways. He gets more carries than anyone on the team. I have to believe the issue is mainly the o-line and lack of qb.

      • You’re right, I don’t. But some folks that follow the Rams are concerned about him and some of the other backs are starting to getting carries instead of him at times.

    Matthew Stafford made a lot of strong throws, but Eason seems to better at throwing the bomb.

            That is the worst recurring argument ever. Like you can’t criticize anyone if you can’t do a better job yourself. You ever criticize the president? If so, could you do better? If you could then why aren’t you on the campaign trail?

            If I was on full scholarship to play qb at UGA I would have been expected to do better than Mason, and I would have been rightfully criticized if I couldn’t complete any passes down field the way he couldn’t.

              Clearly a creedo you live by.

              Say whatever you want about Mason’s limitations… scrambling, deep ball, etc….he put up a season that set the school record and put him in the top 10 in SEC History for competition percentage…anyone that looks at that and says he wasn’t ‘good’ isn’t being critical, they are just being stupid.

                  He’s right you know, you are a overly negative…and only negative based on your own opinion, not facts, or professional knowledge. Bad form, and bad fan. Go run down your own team’s players.

          Kid did a great job for us and probably got the most from his God-given talents.

          Just fyi, a small nuance of this fan thing is to pull for your guys and slag on the other team’s guys.

          Keep working and you could one day be as good a fan as Mason is a quarterback – boy, think of that!

    The fear of the deep pass is a big deal. If we did play Tennessee again (mentioned recently in a thread), they would have a hard time dealing with the more developed Eason. He’s going to be a great one.

    It’s been kinda harsh in here today…Teddy bears, Play-Doh and coloring books are staples of nursery schools, but now they need to show up on college football bloggs like GTO to help distraught bloggers cope with the opinions of a blogger they don’t like.
