Game day post, blowing the Admiral edition

Yeah, well, I don’t think we’ll see that play call today.

The gap between those two teams then has grown into a yawning chasm this season.  If it gets to a point where a brain fart like that costs Georgia a win, this team has problems that were very professionally masked in the first three weeks of the season.  [HINT:  Nah.]

This is a bad, undermanned Vandy squad Georgia is taking on today, which should tell you something about the kind of coach Steve Addazio is.  [SECOND HINT:  Never take hiring advice from Urban Meyer.]  As I’ve posted a couple of times, the ‘Dores are the only SEC team with a negative net YPP and they’re also sporting better than a minus-1 turnover margin per game.  That was not a formula for success against the likes of East Tennessee State and it’s not going to work today.

As for throwing the ball deep because that worked against the Dawgs last week… well, Ken Seals is the only starting quarterback in the conference with a worse passer rating than Emory Jones.  And, unlike Jones, he can’t run.  Speaking of running, remember that Vandy’s leading rusher is gone for the season.

One thing worth noting (and it may not be much) is that, at least statistically, Vanderbilt’s offensive line has performed better to date than has South Carolina’s, so it may be worth seeing how Georgia’s front seven fares today.

On the flip side of the coin, here are a few relevant conference rankings for Vanderbilt’s defense:

The Vandy defense isn’t disruptive and doesn’t really do much to stop the pass or run.  Other than that…

The surest way for this game to be close would be after a crash on the way to the stadium, and we already know the plane landed safely in Nashville.  Dawgs should cover, and rather easily, but at worse we’ll should see something similar play out to what was on display last week.

There are issues worth tracking, though, such as injuries and recovery for same, along with what goes on with the offensive line.  I’ll be watching, for sure.  Feel free to share your game impressions in the comments.

************************************************************************

UPDATE:  Per Marc Weiszer:

Kendall Milton, Georgia’s second leading rusher this season who led the team on the ground against South Carolina, is “banged up,” as is sack leader Adam Anderson.

That’s the word from Kirby Smart on the pregame radio show. Both are dressed out and going through warmups…

    When Washington gets healthy, the Dawgs should just play 12-personnel (1 RB, 2 TEs) for every set.

    No one will be able to stop them, and you’d literally never know if it were run or pass.

    So J.T.’s day is done. You have to wonder how long Jordan Davis and the defensive starters will play.

    Also, again, the offense looks so much better with J.T. on the trigger. Watching Bennett now, and he’s not in much of a rhythm, and he’s a bit late throwing and he just threw another terrible INT.

    Dude.

    Stetson Bennett needs to be ready to come in for a couple of plays while we get our backup ready. That’s it. We will not win with him at QB. If it ain’t Beck, get Vandagriff some reps. We need a talented QB ready to go if anything happens to Daniels.

    So… so far, Bennett has led us to a terrible INT (against Vandy) and a terrible turnover on downs at the 3 yard line (against Vandy) to combine for a scoreless second quarter after scoring 35 points in the first quarter.

    I have seen all I need to see from this guy for the rest of ever.

    Bring on Beck and BVG in the second half to get them the reps the need.

    Why are we doing this? Why can we still not get a yard when we need it? We are 0-0 with SBIV in the game. We won’t beat Arky this year with SBIV but he is the QB after JT and will be this year no matter what. If JT goes down, we will lose 2 or 3 regular season games because no one will be ready except for Stetson. Put Beck in and let him struggle. Give him a chance to grow and learn. We can’t run our way to a championship. We can’t even pick up a yard if we need it. Ugh, this is just frustrating.

    The coaches know what SBIV’s ceiling is. Playing him now has to be reward for practice. OK check that box and move on.

    As someone who does not get to see practice I would think it’s time to get others with a possible higher ceiling than Stetson live game action. Not doing so would only add to my concern about the what do the coaches think about other two QB’s abilities to play now.

    It should be clear: Right now, people who use common sense understand Bennett is the better QB than Beck and is the backup. That’s not why we want to see Beck more. It’s about ceilings and floors.

    Games like this or versus UAB are where you should see much more of Beck than Bennett. You know what you have in Bennett. You have to put Beck into adverse situations to see what you have in him. Maybe he sucks and never supplants Bennett, but you have to see.

      Because he doesn’t want Beck to make a mistake that keeps Vandy scoreless. Beck is clearly not as ready as you seem to think he is. You should be happy we have someone to run the offense if JT should get injured or ill. Instead, all you do is bitch.
