Lately, I’ve watched more than a few clips from Georgia’s 2010 and 2011 seasons and I find myself asking the same question afterwards: what would Aaron Murray’s career have been like playing behind Sam Pittman’s 2017 and 2018 offensive lines?
I know it’s popular in some quarters to rag on Murray’s shortcomings, but, jeez, looking back, he was scrambling for his life more than he should have then. 2011 in particular is striking, as Bobo was changing the offense to go more uptempo but was stuck with Justin Anderson at right tackle, a road grader who didn’t have the quicks to pass protect at a consistent level.
Somehow, despite the o-line ranking seventh in sacks allowed in 2010 and eleventh in 2011, Murray finished a respectable fourth in the conference in passer rating both seasons. You’d have to think that would have been better with a little more support.
Thoughts? What’s your biggest “what if” from the Richt years?
