Be skeptical of the offensive line’s progress, if you must, but Chubb isn’t.
His first season back from a season-ending knee injury played a part, but so did an offensive line that underwhelmed in the run game.
This spring that has changed as the Bulldogs are getting surprising push from a unit that lost three starters.
“It’s kind of what I’ve been used to,” Chubb said Tuesday after practice. “It’s great for us getting back to what we once were.”
Chubb says he sees the holes open up and he hears the offensive line working together on their steps and pointing at their blocking assignments. It shows, he says, with the way they get off the ball.
“It’s a big difference,” said Chubb, who enters his senior season with 3,242 career yards. “From a running standpoint, I can see it all happening. The holes are there and they’re getting movement. They’re communicating a lot better and it’s obvious that they are making progress.”
Man, do I want to believe with you, Nick. A Georgia team with a competent offensive line could go places.
