He **is** somebody.

Stetson Bennett now has the exact number of pass attempts necessary to qualify for stat eligibility.  He’s third nationally, and first in the SEC, in passer rating.

      They have some firepower but, ultimately, no depth. Lets say they score 21 on us. Do you think they can actually hold us to under that and win? I don’t see it unless the entire team has the flu.

        That’s a solid point Biggen. My fear is our offense. They have not looked like a well oiled machine the past few weeks, and our OL appears to be taking steps backwards. I hope that we can use the final stretch of the season to work things out.

    I think it’s Bennett’s team from here on out barring some major screwup or injury. I think Daniels has been “Easoned”. You don’t pull the 3rd best passer in the nation. Sorry, you just don’t.

      Pretty sure Stetson had a pretty highly ranked passer rating going into the Bama game last year.

        He got injured and had a 2 score lead at the half.

          I forgot he got injured in the Bama game. What was the injury again?

              That was Florida. Against bama he did not have an excuse. The mailman’s days are numbered as they should be.

                It’s hard to imagine how disappointed you’ll be if UGA does win it all with Stetson.

                  I would be so happy I wouldn’t care if we won the championship with Spurier as the QB. However, look no further than the Florida game this year to see why the mailman isn’t winning it all for us. But you do you man.

                  Where did I say he was shitty? He is very talented and we were lucky to have him. Past tense. Time to get someone in there that has a higher ceiling to win a shoot out if god forbid we get in one.

                  Man sorry wanting the best players playing to give us the best chance to win a championship grates in your nerves so bad. I’m sure you wish we had kept Richt. You should find a nice D3 school to root for so no one has to deal with your irrational stupidity. If you unfortunately decide to continue being a UGA fan please STFU so no one has to hear from you ever again.

                I want the best player out there too. UGA sports the best offense in the SEC and the 3rd best in the nation. I’d say that’s pretty damn good. Taking that into consideration, maybe we already do have the best QB out there.

                  We have the third best offense in the nation? What stat are you using for the offense to determine we are third best offense?

    I’d bet a lot of money that Stetson starts every remaining regular season game (he has earned that) and that JT will keep coming in for mop up duty, easing him back into game shape (that is a nice luxury of having SBIV). The interesting part will be who starts the SEC Championship…

    I would give JT the entire Charleston Southern game. No need to risk a fluke injury to Bennett and a chance for JT to let it all hang out to see if he is really all the way back. I hope this is JT before the end of the season.

    Good for Stetson. He isn’t the chink in our armor that will cause us to lose a game. The O-line is. I am not going all full-on Munson here, But the Oline is our weakest link.

      Agree. If the O line was better, we could play JT and really put up the yards, but the way it is, playing JT is risky.

      I don’t know. I don’t see them as a major liability. Pass Pro is still really good. Run blocking this game wasn’t great but they were selling out to stop the run. Also playing without the starting left tackle doesn’t help.

      I’m not making excuses. There are still improvements to be made.

  13. Yep, Bluto, the Mailman is somebody, and this sorry old excuse for a Bulldog is grateful for him. I’m enjoying this season so much…this team has kicked ass and taken names. All units are playing lights out from the defense, to the offense, and even special teams. This team has accomplished records that we have not seen since the 1942 Georgia Bulldogs beat everyone’s ass (except those War Eagle Aholes)…by all accounts those 1942 Dawgs were some of the baddest mfers to ever walk a football field…that is until now. Call me the ultimate Homer, but I’m fine with letting go of the wheel and trusting Kirby…and I know that might scare the shit out of other folks driving on 285, but so be it…I haven’t seen a Georgia football team this good in my lifetime, and neither have any of you…enjoy it. Kirby wants to win more than anyone typing here…and he’s going to play any and all players at his disposal to win…I’m cool with that.

    Stetson has played well but is the benficiary of a a great defense. JTD is by far the best QB on this team. His ability to read defenses pre snap is heads above Stetson’s. I love what Stetson has done but we win the natuional championship with JTD.

  15. Won’t it be interesting if the final commentary on this season is that Kirby made exactly one poor QB management decision this year…

    When he failed to start Stetson against Clemson.

    That’d be wiiiiiiiiiiiiild. Heads would explode.

  16. If we get into a shootout… Against this D? And even if we do, Stetson’s running ability is likely something we’ll need. I’d like to see JT be healthy and earn the starting job back, especially by dropping 4 TDs on Bama. But SBIV can beat them to. Somebody’s got to show up with a Defense that can stop us…not worried about our D giving up points.

    Like I said the other day in response to the Senator: Kirby is going to play the best QB, that is Stetson Bennett. But JT does need to continue to get snaps, we need a capable back up in case Stet gets injured.

      Disagree. Stetson only plays well when the running game is clicking. JT has shown the ability to create on his own.
