Georgia football couldn’t get pressure and it cost them
All season long, Georgia football has terrorized opponents, putting a vast amount of pressure on quarterbacks, but against the Tide, the Dawgs had very little success.
Georgia tallied four tackles for loss, zero sacks, and 15 quarterback hurries as a defense. While those hurry numbers make us feel a little better, that goose egg beside the sack category overrides it.
Starting quarterback Bryce Young had all day to throw the ball, and that offensive line stood tough against one of the best defenses in the country. They all deserve snicker bars after that performance.
Georgia, however, should eat beanie weenies for the next week. The defense didn’t look their usual self but sluggish and unmotivated. How a team can come into a game like this unmotivated baffles us, but Alabama had one of its best games of the year, and the Dawgs didn’t make enough adjustments to get the job done.
When you don’t get pressure on a guy like Bryce Young, who went 26-of-44 for 421 passing yards, it will be a long day for a defense, and we saw that with Georgia’s. They were worn out by the end of the game from being on the field so much but still managed to get some key stops down the stretch to avoid getting blown out by more than 17 points.
Georgia has some work to do in terms of pressure-type situations, and with a month, that should be plenty of time to remotivate and have these Dawgs hungry to avenge their legacy against Michigan.
