2. It’s time for Georgia football to ease JT Daniels back into the offense
Nobody knows the exact status of JT Daniels and why he didn’t play against the Gators.
Daniels is still the starting quarterback for Georgia when healthy because he earned that title and worked hard to get it.
As much as Stetson Bennett has helped the team remain undefeated this year and can help Georgia keep winning, Daniels has an it-factor that would elevate the quarterback position for the Dawgs.
Let’s be real, Georgia does not need their offense to be the 2019 LSU one to win this season. What they do need is a quarterback who can make any throw. This statement is especially true on third downs. Keeping drives alive is a valuable tool that Georgia did for a while but has struggled with within the last few weeks.
Sustaining drives will be a key component when Georgia begins its postseason run.
These final four regular-season games are an excellent time for Daniels to take back over and get rolling ahead of the SEC Championship. We saw Daniels against Vanderbilt only play one quarter, and Georgia scored 35 points. This week could present a similar situation because even the Commodores’ defense is better than Missouri’s.
So if Georgia should allow Daniels to get a ton of reps this week, this will be the matchup that’ll build his confidence back up, and he will get some game-time situation work after being out a month.
Both quarterbacks will play, but if there were any game to let Daniels roll with it again, it’s this one. If he does, this game will be ugly, and who knows that 35-point first quarter could happen again.
