Georgia football needs strike first

Georgia football has not scored on their first possession since the Arkansas game back on Oct. 2nd. That was four games ago. Not to mention, the Dawgs have found themselves trailing in two of those games in Auburn and Missouri.

They didn’t trail long at all, but still, the Dawgs need to strike first because it helps prove a point.

Thankfully, it did not hurt Georgia, but it is never a good trend to dig a hole. Luckily Georgia has an elite defense, and it allows the offense to find itself if it does have a sluggish start.

Neyland Stadium will be rocking Saturday night. Georgia does not need to dig a hole and allow Tennessee fans to believe they have a chance to win. Score early and let the Georgia defense do its thing. The longer it’s close, the louder and crazier the environment will be.

The sooner Georgia can get that crowd out of it, the better because if not, the Dawgs will have to fight harder to tune out the noise. Being able to score first means things are clicking on offense and the other team has to score twice as many points to beat you.

Georgia’s offense has been explosive, but it’s taken some time to get there, so a quick start will be extremely helpful.
