Of all the wide receivers Smart’s got, he’s certainly one of them.

I know we have high hopes for Demetris Robertson this season, but Kirby’s not exactly going out of his way to fan the flames.

“I think he’s more comfortable with the offense. He’s played the F, which puts him in the slot. He plays outside, he understands our offense better and he’s also getting more opportunities. To be honest, there’s not three guys out there, really not even that when you add Jayson Stanley and Ahkil Crumpton, so he’s getting pushed to the forefront.”

I hear more excitement there for what’s coming in August than I do about Robertson, to be honest.  Here’s hoping Smart is slow playing our expectations.

    UGA should have a lethal passing game this year. It’s all there with a 3rd year QB, a ton of talent at WR, an elite OL, and a running game that has to be respected.

    If it doesn’t happen this year, it’s not happening.

    If we have better WRs than DRob it’s gonna be a very good year.

    “Here’s hoping Smart is slow playing our expectations.”

    I have no information, but I will observe that he did more or less the same thing with LeCounte, and I think he played a lot last year. I think DRob will be okay and play.

    Kirby is walking a thin line. Keeping fan interest high while keeping the guys motivated – I like his approach.

    Why is he here?

    If he can’t get on the field now, after all the departures, what did Kirby see in him to justify a roster spot? The kid had two years of college under his belt, one on the field and one rehabbing. He was a completely known commodity.

    With this o line and running game, guys who can get safeties terrified of a false step towards the line of scrimmage should be worth their weight in gold. I’m just mystified.

      My thoughts exactly. DRob could be dragging at least one defender downfield, and if not, throw it over top to him. Who’s going to catch him? I know the PAC12 isn’t the SEC, but it’s not Division 3 ball. He caught a bunch of balls his freshman year.

  8. Kirby never met a forward pass or a forward pass catcher that he liked
