More explosive offenses equal even more talent for Georgia football
Another big reason Georgia football should evolve their offense is for guys like Jameson Williams and those like him to come to Georgia instead of the other schools they seem to choose over and over again.
The Dawgs have had plenty of success recruiting, but I’m talking about getting these dynamic NFL-type receivers who want the ball 10 times a game to impress scouts. Yes, Georgia has guys like George Pickens, Jermaine Burton, and other talented guys, but they don’t get used like John Metchie, Williams, and the others.
Thankfully, there are quarterbacks like Gunner Stockton, Brock Vandagriff either coming or at Georgia, so there is a start, but they need guys to get it to them. This offseason needs to feature both of these guys to see what they can do for Georgia, and if they’re not ready, the Dawgs need to go after a throwing machine.
It takes elite dynamic passing games to win national championships complimented by their rush attacks. Georgia already recruits running backs well, and yes, they are recruiting well. Still, there is a different caliber of playmakers they miss out on sometimes that could be in Athens if the offense just took a step in the right direction.
These high-powered offenses, like the last handful of teams to win the national title game depend on quarterbacks to throw it almost 50 times a game, and well, Georgia doesn’t have that right now. Stetson Bennett averages around 20 throws a game, so it won’t work when asked to do more against a team like Alabama.
Joe Burrow threw 49 times in LSU’s national title game. Trevor Lawrence had 32 pass attempts in his last title game appearance. Mac Jones threw it 45 times last year when the Tide won, and Bryce Young threw it 44 times last weekend.
There is a trend here, and Georgia is sitting the quarterbacks capable of this on the bench. If they want to win a title, they have to throw when they want to, not when they have to.
The Dawgs are already recruiting exceptionally well, but they don’t always get the kind of playing time they want or need to get to the next level.
While they have landed some of the top playmakers in the last couple of years, look at what Alabama has on their wideout roster and then tell me there is no difference — you’d be wrong too. They are similar, but if the Dawgs had a Metchie or a Williams on this team, lord knows what could happen.
