I’m not advocating for a wholesale adaptation of LSU’s offensive scheme right now, because it’s not practical and because I don’t presume to know if, even were it so, it would be the best choice for Georgia. I do believe, though, it’s worth checking out these tweets from David Wunderlich breaking down some plays showing how Joe Brady schemed his offense to get receivers open constantly because LSU’s offense before this season had been in a similar posture to Georgia’s and has made a significant leap this season with the change of approach.
See what you think from these:
Look at all the space created around the receivers for them to operate in.
And as a reminder, LSU and Georgia ranked eleventh and second, respectively, in passer rating in 2018. This season, it’s first and fourth, respectively. You can’t tell me the two teams’ talent isn’t comparable. The present difference is the tools the talent is being given to work with.
I’m not smug enough to suggest that this isn’t rocket science. Clearly this is complex stuff, or we’d see defenses routinely shutting down other teams’ passing games. But I am smug enough to suggest that a program with all the resources Georgia has available to it should be able to dial up a passing attack — even one based primarily on a manball approach — that’s more of a challenge for a 2-3 team to defend than we saw Saturday.
