How did Georgia use Bowers last season?

Let Brent Rollins count the ways.

  • Inline – 319 snaps:  93.8 receiving grade, 24 receptions on 31 targets, 488 yards, seven touchdowns
  • Slot – 242 snaps:  69.7 receiving grade, 21 receptions on 28 targets, 273 yards, two touchdowns
  • Wide – 91 snaps:  81.7 receiving grade, 10 receptions on 11 targets, 112 yards, three touchdowns
  • O-Line & Backfield – 5 snaps:  1 reception on 1 target for a nine yard touchdown

Hmmm…  I’m not seeing a lot of bad options there.

As a related matter, I should probably do a post on my favorite Monken play calls last season, but this one…

Bowers opened the scoring in the College Football Playoff Semifinal game.

… and Bowers’ fourth quarter TD in the national championship are probably my top two.  (And, by the way, if you look closely, those two plays were run out of different formations.  Against Michigan, Bowers is lined up as a tackle-eligible.  Georgia ran that as a hurry up and caught the Wolverine defense completely flatfooted.)

Anyway, read the whole thing.  It’s enjoyable, to say the least.

  1. Hope that shoulder heals quickly and he’s good to go right out of the gate…Brock is a baller.

    He made so many plays last year…but when he hit his turbo gear and dusted all the Fech defenders I almost shat cranberry sauce…can’t wait to see more of him this season.

  3. Bunch Smith, Gilbert, Bowers and Washington to the left and dare the D to stack the box.

    “…my favorite Monken play calls last season…”. I look forward to that. Should be an enjoyable exercise for you and a very popular post, at least amongst us Dawg fans.

    Davis didn’t have to watch that film to realize that Bowers is an actual athlete.

    While opposing defenses watch film on Bowers from last season, I hope they’re imagining sets where Gilbert is on the field at the same time. Good luck simulating that in practice.

    That poor DE and “weak” side linebacker. Damned if you do, Damned if you don’t. By the time they realized what was going on it was already too late.

    Not to be lost on both touchdowns is how he did a nice job of staying in the backfield to avoid an offensive PI call.

      One more thing. If he is back for the Oregon game, I wouldn’t be surprised if they key all over him, thus giving Washington an opportunity for a big game working out of 12 personnel.

    I always getting a little warm spot in my heart and a giggle when I remember how we kicked Michigan in the teeth and threw them into a dumpster down in Miami. Just a solid all around ass kicking.

    Is it just me or doesn’t look like Cook probably scores the handoff, too?
