Newcomer Dawg porn

A few noteworthy observations from Jake Rowe’s updated offensive depth chart projections:

  • “We’ve already heard a little positive buzz about McIntosh, who is silky smooth in the passing game and especially for a 6-foot, 220-pound back.”
  • “Holding off Pickens, however, won’t be easy. The former five-star prospect is another player who has created some buzz in his short time on campus and he’s going to get opportunities early on in the year to show what he can do.”
  • “Based on what we heard over the weekend, Cager is going to be able to help this team and maybe a lot. The former Miami wide receiver is a really smooth athlete with a ton of experience under his belt.”
  • “We’re sticking with our May projection here but keep an eye on Blaylock as the year goes on. Robertson and Jackson are extremely talented players and will factor prominently into the offense, but based on what we’ve heard about Blaylock thus far, he has the goods. A lightning quick athlete who plays the game the right way, Blaylock has impressed those who’ve interacted with him with his maturity and focus. He’s going to get better with more reps.”

I’m feeling a little lightheaded now.  If you don’t mind excusing me…

    I thought Cager was pretty impressive at Miami. He would’ve looked even better with a competent QB, so I can’t wait to see what he looks like with an outsanding QB throwing his way.

    Blaylock kinda reminds me of a bigger/faster Terry Godwin. My biggest concern going into the new season is AGAIN…the DL. Don’t feel that we are getting maximum effort from that group, some players….no all.

    • Have to get by the Elephant in the conference, first. While UGA is going to be loaded for sure, so is Alabama. I hate to say “national title or bust” when a team as loaded as Bama is in Georgia’s direct path to the trophy.

        I would hate to view football that way even if Bama wasn’t going to be in the way every year. Just too limited of an approach to set your “do or die” expectation on something which always turns out to be a that 1, 2, or 3 instances which are happenstance, and beyond control. A single bounce of a kick/fumble, slam-bang call by an official, a bad snap, dropped pass, pulled hammy, erc., and on and on should decide your pleasure with your team, coach, or program. I know many don’t mean it literally, but so many do these days. You can be the best team and/or coach and not sniff a MNC, too many variables and twists and turns of football these days.

        I just like knowing we can play with anyone, and have our guys in the conference and playoff discussions most years. I will always be happy with winning the SEC, and occasionally getting into the tournament. No playoff system guarantees you the best team will always be the winning team anyway. Just congratulate them, and keep coming back for your shot.

        I don’t think anyone can make me feel we don’t have a case that we weren’t the best team in 2017, or 2007 for that matter. I think we outplayed Bama head to head that night at the Benz and we were robbed of the title, but both teams had a pretty good case to claim “best” for different reasons. In no way was I disappointed with that team, so if that was a “MNC” or bust year, should I feel bad? I can tell you I don’t, at all. I primarily wish we had won the MNC more for those the players who laid it all out that season and came up short through no fault of their own, and for those fans who thinks it is so danged critical. It really isn’t, and that season was far more enjoyable than 1980 was, imo.

          +10 Totally agree Mac. Unfortunately, ESPN’s focus on “championship or bust” is turning the average fan’s mindset into “championship or bust.” Having hung out with some older Dawg fans, the fan expectations used to be centered around winning the conference, winning a good bowl, and beating your rivals. I can appreciate that. I’d love to win a national title and I love that Kirby has us in the hunt, but it won’t be my measure of happiness. I’ll settle for dominating our rivals and cleaning up in the East every year while I wait for everything to fall into place on the national stage.

          I completely agree. “National title or bust” is a miserable way to go through life. Don’t get me wrong. I’m enjoying the Kirby resurgence as much as anybody, and I expect them to win the East and have a decent chance at the SEC title. But I’ll be danged if I’m going to pin my enjoyment of college football season on that sort of ultimatum.

      I cant decide if we will be ok when we get Clemson. They will be fresh off one of the easiest schedules this century and we, well, you know. Will our team be battle tested and stronger, or worn out?

      Derek, that is one reason why I hate that phony playoff. Folks don’t enjoy and appreciate a great season because of the attitude that if you aren’t CFP Champ you might as well be South Carolina.

    Sometimes the early reviews are prophetic…sometimes not. The reviews on Herschel was “stiff” and on Gurley “another Trent Richardson.” All things considered it’s encouraging to hear the great reviews.

    Dawg porn or not, considering we have an apparent urgent need for WRs and three at the position are noted here, I’m happy about that!

      With all the lamenting we have moaned about the WR and DL groups, I feel the quantity of bodies will do two things…add needed depth and encourage (or add anxiety to) the starters. I see Holloman, Simmons and Robertson stepping up while the newbies nip their heels. Same with Clark, Rochester, Davis, Marshall on the DL. I just believe the influx of the new high-level talent is going to excite the whole team. I know it sounds like Kool-Aid…
