Hey, this guy may not be bad.

You know, I have a distinct feeling that something important about Georgia’s offense this season is being overlooked.

It’s easy to get distracted by all the Stetson-is-he-or-isn’t-he-the-guy chatter, but the fact remains that Todd Monken is damned good at this job.  Elite, in fact, to borrow a word.  And, for Monken, 2022 will represent the first season when installation of his offense won’t be limited because of a pandemic, his players have a full year’s experience under their belts of playing in his scheme and he won’t be juggling quarterbacks from the get go.

I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time thinking Georgia’s offense won’t be better this year.

  4. Agree. Said before I think we score seven more per game and give up seven more per game this year.

    Looking at your cfb stats that would take us from 38-10 per game to 45-17. If we can still stop the run without #99 then I think the defense can hold opponents to 13 per game… which would be incredible and no doubt keep us undefeated heading to Atlanta.

    Our offense is going to be just plain nasty for all the reasons mentioned. When you analyze position groups on offense we really are going to be better at every position with the possible exception of running back which I think will be a wash at best. We’re going to miss Cook the most imo…. hopefully Edwards can do some of the things Cook did last year. Can’t wait to see how Monken uses him.

    • McIntosh is your answer for Cook.

      • Edwards is our best one cut back since Swift and I expect Monken to try and get him in space. K Mac is a big dude and I see him as more of an every down back this year although he is clearly a threat as a pass catcher… and thrower lol. Hopefully he stays healthy and has a huge year.

      Kirby didn’t push for padded stats in the fourth quarters last year.
      Those numbers could have been a lot sweeter…but he doesn’t GAS about stats…he was building for the long game by playing the seconds and thirds. That should pay off this year. Kirbs…he’s ahead of the curve on program building strategies.

  5. Monken is the answer to the problem I had with Bobo. Just because you can score as much and as fast as you want doesn’t mean you should. He gets complimentary football.

    He doesn’t live and die by the more recent mindset of “do the same thing until they stop you”. He seems perfectly comfortable with dictating and/or adapting. Imo, he’s the right kind of OC for modern football.

    Monken is on the right side of the “you’re either elite or you’re not” line

    I’m going to go out on a limb and say, before the season is over, the media will be on the Stetson train. The narrative changes and my man finds himself in New York in early December. He won’t win it but that was never the point.

    The importance of returning starters, especially seniors, is not in question. Whatever makes those losers sleep better during class.
    The Dawgs got some of those too. Nolan Smith. Bobby Beal. The Tide damn sure remembers those guys from the last 15 minutes.

    A friend and I were drinking good bourbon and watching 2021 Dawg highlights last night (I mean, what else do you do 4 Saturdays before kickoff). Several things stuck out offensively (and I fully realize this is a Barnhart-esque review, but you really don’t have to overthink it):
    James Cook was really good last year; Zeus finished some drives with really quality runs for TDs; and, we’ll miss Burton more than we want to think.
    HOWEVER, Brock Bowers is a freak, and he returns; Kenny McIntosh had quite a few highlights of his own on that reel; and, if Arian Smith can stay healthy all he does is score TDs.

    As the Senator always points out, all these offensive starters including Stet now have another year under Monken. It really is hard — and the fact that Gilbert and Big 0 will be on the field with Bowers many times makes it harder — to think that we won’t be better on offense.

      Big 0 will have 500+ yards this year
      B bowers will have 750+
      McConkey will have 500+
      AD Mitchell will have 750
      A Smith will have 500+
      D Blaykock 500
      K Jackson 750

      K Milton will have 800y
      K Mac will have 800y
      D Edwards 700y
      B Robinson 450

      This offense will average 42ppg and be able to score at will.

      That’s not scary. What’s scary is the defense may not fall off much this year.

    Which 4.3 4.4 guy do you cover over the top when you have to guard the run? Oh yeah one of those 4.3 4.4 guys is a tight end and one of them if he’s stays healthy is like a 4.2.
