Just showin’ off

I don’t know if I’d go so far as to call this art…

… but it’s something, alright.

    Pretty awesome. He had to stop, backup a few inches, reload and still make the kick.

    Know what’s not awesome? Our offense. The o-line is a mess right now, especially the right side. The ineptness if the o-line is trickling down to Fromm. Fromm looks an awful lot like Eason did 2 years ago…locking in to one WR or one side of the field, not seeing wide open targets for the easy pass, throwing bad balls due to the rush or fear of the rush, and holding on to the ball far too long. And we have seen this beyond just the Tennessee game.

    The defensive line is not much better. Our front 4 have shown to be mildly ineffective to this point. Not on player requires a double team, which frees the opposing o-line to fire into the second level.

    This squad has major issues and is facing big time trouble down the road. LSU, Auburn and Kentucky appear be L’s at this point. 2017 is looking more and more to have been nothing more than 1 magical season as of today. Can our issues be corrected? I sure hope so.

        That is one word for it, another would be “desperate”. Been hard for him the past year and a half, nothing to doubt so he invents stuff. Only thing he has right is the injuries and constant cross training on the OL has everyone out of their natural habitat. A bad OL can disrupt both the running and passing game. We have so much depth (crayons) has us overthinking it. Set a depth chart and hold everyone accountable for being ready to stop up when needed. We have one more week to get it right, when we hit LSU, be ready for a trench fight.

        Wrong about the defense, last week our front guys showed they can get after it. We have much tougher tests that a TN OL and running game bu that looked better to me. Build on that and keep the secondary in position and Red Stick will go our way. WRs need to keep up their blocking but learn to catch the ball. Running backs looked better too, we are getting close if Chaney will let them play.

      Auburn sure was impressive vs. Southern Miss.

      I’m skeptical about the validity of your skepticism.

      Is it schtick at this point? I mean, Georgia hasn’t trailed or been seriously threatened through five games.

    Is it me or during every play is Charlie Woerner standing around looking for something to do?

    The TEs are the reason the pass protection breaks down. Hell Nauta missed his block so bad on his TD play he was just a spectator.

      Yep, Nauta got beat on that one play & admitted so. I believe Thomas also got beat on a play, shit happens. Would like to see more protection from the backfield…but not sure if they were even back there sometimes.

      • Look at the second play of the second quarter. Fields first play. Nauta and Woerner are staggered in a power formation. The play runs away from them, but both guys they are supposed to block run through them, all the way down the line of scrimmage to the opposite side, and make the gang tackle.

        Neither of out TEs can block a moving target.

        • I agree that this facet of the Offense is a weakness. But I also think it is about the only glaring one.

          Have to look back and visually see the play you are talking about. But I do see the play you are referring to from the participation report, Herrien picked up 2 yards. The play before was a 15 yard pass completion to Godwin after, a 7 yard rush by Swift.

          If everybody done their jobs on every play, we may score on every one. It just doesn’t happen….just don’t think it is a fair thing to say that Woerner can’t block, or either TE for that matter. Thanks for the response though.

        watch the replay on that play Greg. I believe Nauta was getting beat but the play called for Swift to chip block Swift had a LB coming to split the gap and blew his assignment. The LB did get past Nauta but he was supposed to have some help from Swift. Swift was like a deer in headlights on his blocking assignments. Had Swift chip blocked then Fromm has enough time to make his throw.

          yes, I remember, he was that 1 time (protection – Swift). You are correct. It’s a team game, if one person misses their assignment, the play breaks down. Most blame it on the QB…but not all. Thanks!

            at the end of the day, it was still a busted play and the offense has to get their heads out of their colons.

              CANECUR…but they get better imo. Just game number 5, they get better imo. No telling how much actual time the 1st team has played together this season (qtrs). Damned if you do (play’em), damned if you don’t. When 68% of your team is freshman and sophomores, you go thru some growing pains….all teams do.

          The blocking rules will always say for Swift to abandon the chip block to take on the interior. It is Nauta’s fault for not executing his block properly. You execute the block like normal. If you get the chip block, you use it to redirect the defenders momentum; if not, you still block your ass off.

    It was a great play that will make a lot of highlight reels because it is so unusual. But I think trying to make the kick is arguably the wrong thing to do because I believe the ball is live and if (almost likely) the other team gets the ball they can run to the other end and score. Given the chance to think about it, the best thing is to cover it, but I am glad they didn’t think in this case.

    Great play by Rod, but Pruitt can’t say they gave max effort there. They just kind of stopped after the first approach and just stood there while he backed up and tried again. If they keep coming full bore they blow that up.

  14. Yes, the lore grows. I just hope Camarda got his dropsies out of the way in a game that wasn’t in doubt. He really botched that one.

    Blankenship may never have a 61 yard game winner that goes in Georgia lore but he’s definitely endearing himself to this program, in many ways. Maybe he can make up for Billy Bennett’s misses when we go back to BR in a couple weeks. Still one of the best games I’ve seen even though we lost. I’ve never heard a stadium go from that loud to that silent and back to that loud in such a short time. It was a true roller coaster in just a few minutes at the end of that game.

    I think pk holding is a very overlooked aspect of the game. They often get bad snaps, probably more than many realize.

    The Men in Blazers have already expressed their love of Hot Rod would love to see him called up to the USMNT. Rod played soccer at pretty high level a standing chip like that is fairly common soccer – now getting it cross a bar 10 feet in the air 13 – 15 yards downfield is impressive.
