Trust me, if you enjoyed today’s Seth Emerson’s piece about Georgia’s defense, you’re gonna need a cigarette and/or a cold shower after reading Max Olson’s post ($$).
Georgia has the nation’s No. 1 pass defense, and that unit never lets up. They’ve taken big leads into halftime of their last four games (35-0, 26-6, 38-0, 24-0) and have allowed a total of 170 passing yards in the second half of those games. That’s insane. Opponents have dropped back to pass on them 150 times, according to PFF. More of those plays have ended in sacks (18) than completions of 10+ yards (16). The Bulldogs have allowed the second-fewest 10- or 20-plus-yard plays in FBS. They’re one of only three defenses that have forced three-and-outs on more than half their drives.
There’s more where that came from, so read the whole thing. Hubba hubba.
