Change is a good thing for Georgia football if they want to win championships
Georgia football doesn’t need to be afraid of change. Sometimes it feels like head coach Kirby Smart doesn’t mind this ground-and-pound offense because he is a defensive-minded guy. However, if he wants to win championships, he will have to do some work with his offense.
The first step was hiring a guy like Todd Monken, but now let him run the offense and be creative with these talented playmakers. Monken knows what he is doing, and with the right personnel, this offense can be great.
Georgia spreads the wealth, but at the same time, the focus is still on being able to run the ball.
Throwing the ball more isn’t a bad thing. It’s something most offenses try and do nowadays. Look at Ole Miss, Alabama, Ohio State, heck, even Florida for a little while — they all are explosive on the offensive side of the ball. One of them has a good defense in Alabama, while the others are still figuring that out. However, they know if they score 50 points, they can usually win games.
Georgia’s got the defense, and now they need to take the leap of faith and change the offense. Some kids may leave, but so be it. The Dawgs want to be elite. Well, they have to match the offense to the defense.
Some may say, well, we did it for 12 games this season, yeah, but look what happened when Georgia needed explosiveness against a defense like Alabama. Smart is intelligent enough to know by now something has to happen. Run-dominant teams aren’t going to win national championships anymore.
The Dawgs need to be explosive, throw the ball without a care in the world and make their opponents pay that way. It’s past time to change the offense. It was past the time in 2012 when Georgia fell to Bama in the SEC Championship.
Georgia has been good enough but not great enough to win it all. The Dawgs may win it all this season, but that doesn’t mean they should keep this stagnant offense even then. Evolution happens naturally, and it’s the logical next step for the Dawgs.
