Here’s what Sports247 has to say about one of its twenty people who will swing the 2020 season:
Will transfer import JT Daniels be eligible? How good is Jamie Newman when he faces SEC competition? How much can Georgia get out of a loaded 2020 wide receiver class? All of those questions about Georgia’s offense are secondary to the question of Todd Monken’s impact as offensive coordinator. Can he be Georgia’s Joe Brady? Will Kirby Smart take a page from Ed Orgeron’s book and let him? With Georgia’s loaded defense and plenty of talent available on offense (George Pickens is begging for a chance to show he’s one of the best wideouts in the nation) Georgia is a legitimate national title team if Monken’s unit can deliver. [Emphasis added.]
With regard to the two bolded questions, my answers are as follows: (1) He doesn’t need to be. (2) Yes, Smart needs to trust his OC this season and loosen the reins.
There’s a reason they’re paying Monken the big bucks. It’s not to be Joe Brady. It’s to be Todd Monken. Let him, please.
