Stetson’s greatest hits

That’s a fun clip to watch, but Dayne Young misses the point about Bennett.  I can’t question his heart.  He’s got enough talent to perform effectively for this Georgia team.  What’s held him back previously is that tendency he has to force things when they aren’t there, which is part of a bigger issue of not trusting his offensive coordinator’s ability to design plays he can succeed with.  Stetson is a much better quarterback this season because he’s finally seen the light in terms of playing within the scheme.  And Georgia is better for that.

  1. SBIV has plenty of arm to be a college QB, but you’re right. The way he trusts and runs the offense is an absolute sight to see. His mechanics have gotten better under Monken’s tutelage.

    I don’t want to start a debate, but imagine what the offense could have been last year with Fromm running this offense. JT possibly doesn’t come to Athens, but maybe he still comes to Georgia to heal and learn and be ready for 2021 anyway.

      Trust is one thing, when the head and body don’t trust each other to do what fits or attempt some out of body experience or what you’ve practiced to do in certain moments is another trust that goes wrong, when the head and body trust each other in most if not all moments, that is when it all looks natural…

    SBIV’s performance is certainly enhanced by the protection he receives from the O line. Coach Luke is doing a fine job there.
    Now I’m going to watch that clip a couple more times.

    • I was gonna say, you haven’t seen as much balls batted at the LOS. Thats a tribute to the oline creating that pocket. Also maybe he is dropping back a little more? Less short underneath routes?

      • I’d have to look at a statistical breakdown of his throws, but I think alot of it is route selection… we seem to toss more outs, wheels, corners, etc… less stuff over the middle.

        I could easily be wrong, but it seems Stet does his best work between the hash and the sideline.

    That ball to Bowers in the end zone vs Ky was the best pass I’ve ever seen him throw. His accuracy is certainly improved.

    To be honest, I could really care less about who the QB is, just keep winning.

    Though if SBIV was about 3 inches taller, he’d be the hottest QB out there – future #1 overall, etc.

  5. I agree Stetson has done a better job so far of not trying to force things that aren’t there. Thing that worries me most now is is woeful 3rd-down conversion stats (compared to Daniels)…..

    FWIW, I think it’s possible to logically arrive at the conclusion that Daniels is overall the most talented and best QB of the two, while also believing that in certain situations Stetson may give you more than Daniels is willing/able to give with his legs.

    The fact that Stetson represents a greater threat to run the ball is a BIG upside for me….

    That isn’t all on the QB.

    Stetson’s a growing legend and doing a great job!
    But like most, I want to see JT back in there against Florida.
    It’s a shame we can’t have them both on the field at the same time.
    Or maybe we can! There are some great plays that can be ran with two QB’s one of which is a RPO threat.
    But Monken probably (and rightfully) believes we don’t need trickeration with the talent we have.
    But it would be fun.

    Dayne Young can go f#*k himself. Story is made up and flagellant. Georgia fans are happy with SBIV’s performance.

  9. People mostly use the phrase “system quarterback” as a pejorative but plenty of teams find success matching the skillset of their QB to the system of the offense. Right now Stetson looks like a Senior QB (which he is) who is very comfortable operating within the system of Todd Monken’s offense. The fact that he’s surrounded by so much talent at back, receiver, and tight end coupled with his own running abilities lead me to believe he’s more than capable of winning a championship. The past two weeks he’s stretched defenses with his legs a few times instead of forcing things with his arm. Truly playing within himself and the system. Fun to watch since he’s so animated after big plays as well.

    After the cheap shot that injured SBIV last year, I would love to see him get a shot at the TURDS for a little payback. What sweet revenge it would be to hang 1/2 a hundred on them.
