Aaron Murray sees some Aaron Murray in Jake Fromm.
He also doesn’t shy away from what might eventually be a quarterback controversy.
So what happens when Eason comes back? That’s the increasing question around the fan base, and perhaps the coaching staff. Murray’s opinion: It depends on when Eason is ready to return, and how the team is doing.
Murray mentioned the Florida game: If Georgia is 6-1 entering that game, or even 7-0, it would be hard to change quarterbacks.
“I think a lot of it is going to depend on where they are as a team. If they’re rolling and they’re winning, and things are going smooth, I don’t think you want to disrupt the ship. Especially at that position, if Fromm’s playing well,” Murray said.
“It’s going to depend on the timeline: When he’s going to be back, and how well they’re playing. If things are going rocky, and Fromm has been up-and-down, and the team feels confident that Eason’s healthy and is ready to roll, I’m sure they will go back with him.”
There is some logic to that… especially when you consider what happened the last time Georgia benched its starting quarterback for the Cocktail Party. I suspect Eason will be back before Florida, though.
