I’m not sure how significant a development we’re supposed to take this as, but it does sound like Kirby grows ever more confident in his third-year starter at quarterback.
Smart believes Fromm can handle whatever Coley can dish out, and will also have a say-so on what the Bulldogs do as well.
“Any time you’ve got a three-year starter,he can give you input on things he likes about the offense, things he dislikes and things he thinks he can be successful,” Smart said. “That input is helpful, it’s always helpful.”
I’m still not buying the “Bulldogs will throw the ball more under Coley” narrative — the depth picture at both receiver and running back suggest something different, at least early on — but Jake’s certainly earned more trust based on his on-field decision making.
