National media, if you want to discuss Georgia’s quarterback situation realistically, take a page from Jason Butt’s book.
Given the season he had – 2,615 yards, 24 touchdowns, seven interceptions – it’s way too early to even hint Fromm will endure a true competition with Fields. That stated, you can bet both of the players will treat the spring, summer and preseason as if it is a real battle for the top quarterback spot…
While Fields will certainly provide a much-different skill set, Fromm is going to be really hard to beat out. The fact that Fromm played well enough to where Georgia felt it couldn’t turn back to Eason says all you need to know about the kind of preparation he puts in on a regular basis. You can bet that Fromm will be just as prepared to keep his starting quarterback role as he was to enter a game if called upon.
See how easy that was?
