“The key word in ‘depth chart’ is the first one.”

As much as Kirby Smart may grumble after last Saturday’s scrimmage about his quarterback situation, Seth Emerson ($$) has a brief reminder about how it’s still better than what he faced going into the 2019 season.

As for depth, even after losing Newman, Georgia still has four scholarship quarterbacks, a year after a freshman walk-on traveled as the No. 3 quarterback. That bodes well for the future.

Smart’s not exactly in dire straits for the present, either.

    For all my T’ville and Tallahasse bros and sis out there, the way Coach Smart is handling our QB depth reminds of this slogan for our local car commercials around swga and the panhandle “Stacking em deep and selling em dog-gone cheap. Drive it off the lot like you stole it!”

      You watch that clip and it is hard to wrap your head around the fact that that is also Wyatt Earp (Tombstone-one of the all time greats). Kurt Russell has pretty much covered the spectrum of roles.

    Daniels completed about 60% of his passes at USC. Not bad for a kid thrown into the fire as a true freshman. If I’m Mathis or Beck, this may be the best chance they’ll ever get at a starting QB job in Athens.

    Gotta give Kirby even more credit for landing Daniels. How many HC’s would’ve sat back and considered the QB recruiting done for 2020 once Newman was on board.

    It would’ve been nice to have Newman’s experience. His rushing ability was a threat we haven’t had in decades. It’s a bit confusing when it comes to QB recruiting. We recruit some of the least mobile QBs in Eason, Fromm, maybe Daniels. But we also go after top duel threat QBs like Fields and Newman. It’s hard to decipher our offensive paradigm when you see such a difference in athletic ability at the QB position.

    We have a James Cook to run the Wild Dawg. We’re fine.

      You’re right. Every time Cook lines up back there I’m thinking “this is the time he’s going to pitch it to someone else” but I’m always fooled. Genius!
