The Big Chaney

Say what you want about the tenets of Georgia’s 2016 offensive strategy, dude, but when it comes to third-down conversion rates, at least it’s an ethos.

    I don’t know what all the stats say, but Chaney’s offense was much easier on the eyes than Shottenheimer’s. Not to say the O was great this year by any stretch, but it wasn’t perpetually stuck in the sand.

      Yes, it was. I hope – actually I believe – that far too much blame is being put on Chaney. I think we will see marked improvement this year and beyond.

        Kirby’s Razor posits that the best possible explanation for Chaney is Kirby

        Agree that it looked stuck in sand, quick sand perhaps. And Chaney is not getting too much blame, imo, he had both Chubb and Sony, a passer with the arm strength to stretch the field and keep defenses honest, and get stuffed by several teams. He had no answer, nothing. We cannot help but look better in 2017, although I fear we will look stagnant against the better defenses again. We were totally throttled and there appeared to be nothing as a Plan B. With the number of weapons at our disposal, that is concerning.

    Fuck it, Senator. Let’s go bowling.

    I’m just going to take a moment to enjoy the fact that my favorite blog about my favorite team referenced my favorite movie

    By SEC standards … our 2016 OL was a “D” … hard to do much with sub-standard talent … just look at our OL season ending representation on the All Conference teams.

    You panning for small nuggets today?

    Chaney is a nihilist. He believes in nothing.

    I guess I didn’t think about it it during the season, but I do recall thinking that on 3rd down, I expected us to convert. In the 2015 season, I pretty much knew that the drive was over if we got to 3rd down.


  8. Our 3rd down percentage really tied the room together.

    There’s some real powerhouse teams on that list.

    I also saw Mizzou on that list. I wonder how much improvement Mizzou shows if you take out the Georgia game?
