Georgia football offense: B+
Georgia football has an offense full of playmakers and weapons with the ability to hurt defenses in a flash, but they struggled against the Tide when it mattered most. The Dawgs showed it was hard for them to keep up with a powerhouse like Alabama, so they earned a B+.
Throughout Games 2-12, the Dawgs pretty much scored whenever they wanted to, and no one could find that answer. Alabama did their homework and found a way to contain the Dawgs, so Georgia must regroup and refocus.
The Dawgs average 39.38 points a game, 194.9 rushing, 247.92 passing, and 442.8 offensive yards. They are still a productive group, but they got exposed against the Tide.
Alabama showed teams how to limit the Dawgs, so now Georgia has to get creative and prove they can hang with the big dogs. Defense can still win championships if their offense can do their job too.
Starting quarter Stetson Bennett did a great job getting the Dawgs where they are, but after the game against Alabama, some question if he is the right man for the job. He may end up being the guy who has to get it done, and that doesn’t mean head coach Kirby Smart doesn’t know what he is doing.
Sometimes things happen behind closed doors that cause things to happen the fans don’t like, and it sucks to say, but there isn’t much we can do about it. This situation may be one of those times.
However, with playmakers like Ladd McConkey, Brock Bowers, the stable of running backs, and many others, the Dawgs have plenty of guys who can get it done if Bennett can just get it to them.
The loss to Alabama wasn’t just Bennett’s fault, but a collective whole as there is no I in team. There is plenty of time to cook up better offensive stuff ahead of the Michigan game, and Todd Monken needs to do that. He got away from what worked against Alabama instead of controlling the clock and playing ball their way.
It was tough to see, but it happened. Georgia’s offense can be an A+ unit, but now they just have to handle their business for the next game to get the rematch they want.
