Georgia football fans — trust us, we feel your pain and disappointment in the Bulldogs after Saturday’s disappointing loss to Alabama.

However, as we all know, there is a 24-hour grace period for losses, including the ones against Alabama.

The concerns and questioning are entirely understandable, and those issues should be voiced, but at the same time, we should trust what head coach Kirby Smart is doing with this program — quarterback situations and all.

He got this job for a reason, and while we all may not agree with how he does things, Smart does know a thing or two about college football.

The grace period is over for dwelling on the Alabama loss for Georgia football fans.

The loss stings, and it sucks that Georgia has lost to Alabama seven times in a row, but complaining about it and acting like it’s the end of the world isn’t going to change that. We all have the right to feel that way because we love Georgia football, but the grace period is over with, and it’s time to move on to the next game.

Georgia’s season is still on track and can still end in the first national title in 41-years, but it doesn’t help when the fans are all bickering back and forth at each other about something none of us can change or fix.

The Dawg Nation is one of the most passionate groups in college football, and we’re not saying those opinions aren’t something to worry about, but it’s the jolliest time of the year. We should all be excited to head to Miami for New Year’s and watch the Dawgs take on Michigan.

Smart and his coaching staff are hard at work on getting those issues fixed, and the fanbase needs to be there as their supporters. I know Dawg nation is, and they’re just concerned about things because that 41-year drought is weighing on us, but this thing isn’t over yet.

Sure we have every right to complain about the quarterback situation, the defense playing like crap, and everything else we aren’t happy with right now. Still, at the same time, Georgia is 12-1 and in the playoffs, which only happens for a small number of teams.

We all love Georgia football, some more than others, so enjoy the ride. Let’s all enjoy the holidays and move on from this Alabama loss.

The team already has, and so should the fanbase. We will continue to discuss how to fix things and debate the Dawgs for the next three weeks, but no matter what happens, we’re all loyal Dawg fans who love this team and know Smart is doing the right thing.
