The Dawg porn you need

I almost wept real tears of joy reading this.

“It was coupled together and it’s what we’ve been looking for the last weeks,” Daniels said. “I’d say that was our first real complete game. Mississippi State great throwing, didn’t run it like we wanted to. South Carolina, more of a statement game, we came out trying to run it. Today we threw when the looks said to throw and we ran when the looks said to run.”

Fuck balance for balance sake.  Fuck establishing the run in the face of nine-man boxes because grinding the other team down is the order of the day.  Or because it’s the offense’s responsibility to protect the defense, or some other nonsense.

I don’t ask for much.  Taking what the defense gives you should be the first order of business for any competent offensive coordinator.  It’s taken a long time for y’all to get there, but thank you, Todd Monken.

    Thank you that was the style of offense we have been waiting on.
    The expression on Kirby’s face after the game makes me believe he finally got what he wanted to.

      You think Kirby, our Kirby, liked 300 yards passing on a cold wet Missouri morning?

      Looked a bit more like a man forced to eat his spinach. Yeah, it’s good for him, but he doesn’t have to like it!

        I’ll be happy to be proven wrong on that going forward, personally. Need to see what he/Monken does with a big lead heading into the 4th in a big game, and what they do when we have a big lead at the half. Come out and run the ball every time to shorten the game? Or keep the pedal down and play aggressively all the way?

            No, I don’t think it’s “keep chucking it.” It’s, don’t get predictable about running the ball up the middle the first two downs and facing 3rd and long on every second half series. I’d think as an astute Georgia fan you’d have figured out what the “bleed the clock” mentality has cost us in the KS era.

                  So we got ahead of the chains with runs on the first drive and after the second successful first down run we called a second down pass, took a sack and punted. (Keeping the pedal down pays off!!!)

                  On drive 2 above the first three first down runs are successful On the third series the first down run gets 7 yards. On second and 3 we get throttled. (We could have called a pass and taken a sack too. See above.)

                  Third drive we have 3rd and short and get stuffed.

                  The last drive in isolation ain’t good admittedly.

                  My point remains tho. We should have been able to run on second and short and third and short and instead we got stuffed. When we called a pass on second and medium we got a sack.

                  We were not owning the los. They were. Thats why we lost.

    I would say that “taking what you want” is the next and optimal level.

    They may be giving you the run in 2 minute. They may be giving you the pass up 17 in the fourth.

    There are situations where you still need to take what they ain’t giving you.

    Balance allows for minimal competence at both.
    Taking what they’re giving you allows maximizing your competence at each.
    Taking what you want is how you go 15-0.

    Its nice to have gotten through to stage 2 anyway.

      Well, taking what you want is what happens when you have better talent than they do. I trust Kirby can figure that part out.

      I’d settle for ruthlessly exploiting whatever they’re giving you. Let’s get to that point before we talk about running successfully against stacked boxes again.

          Exactly….football ain’t a hard game, all plays work if you just execute.

          To me, balance is when you can run & pass when you want. Explosive is good, but rather be balanced first.

          Both is always good…

            You have to do both decently well or teams will force you to do what you don’t want to do. That’s why balance is so important.

            Once you show a defense you can do either, they may then try to dictate what you do based on down and distance and other factors.

            If you can execute and take advantage of what they’re giving you, then great.

            Then you have situations where you have to throw to catch up or run to burn clock and move the chains.

            When you can run/pass effectively when everyone in the building knows what’s coming, then you’ve arrived.

    Yes, it was good to see, and against a decent Mizzou defense as well. For a little while in the first half, I was scared JT was going to get killed. But that roll out and completion seemed to change the feel of the game. From then on, JT seemed in complete control.

    I’d like to believe this is what CKS has envisioned all along. He simply hasn’t had the coordinators, players or compliant opponent to achieve those results 15 times in a single year.

  11. The good (or maybe not) thing is that Daniels still seems to have room for improvement. I don’t claim to be a QB guru but he looks a little rusty at times with some fundamentals and even decision making. It’s not a knock as he’s obviously transformed the offense. I just feel like he’s still learning the offense while gelling with Monken and his teammates. Not really sure how or if you want to try and mess with his fundamentals, though. Some take it well and some just are who they are.

      His throwing motion is eerily similar to Aaron Rodgers. It’s not a classic, set and throw, driving off the back leg. It’s more of a whip/snap throw off the front foot. The issue is Rodgers is the only QB I’ve ever seen that can do it consistently and accurately…. do you mess with JT’s mechanics? Dunno🤷‍♂️
