Georgia football had its sloppiest outing of the season in a week four victory against Kent State, but there was one player who stood out among the rest. While the team as a whole looked flat and unprepared throughout most of the game, Brock Bowers’ contributions earned our Week 4 MVP honor — his second straight.
The Dawgs looked like they were sleepwalking through the majority of the game. Kent State came ready to play while Georgia didn’t look prepared at all, which is inexcusable regardless of the noon kickoff time.
Georgia finished with 529 yards of offense and a 17-point win, but miscues, turnovers, and silly mistakes kept the game much closer than it should have been.
Georgia football tight end Brock Bowers earns his second weekly MVP in a row.
For the second consecutive week, Bowers was the driving force of the Georgia offense. He is one of the most uniquely gifted athletes in the country, and offensive coordinator Todd Monken is starting to utilize his versatility more as the season progresses.
Not only did he haul in five passes for 60 yards on the day, but Bowers also added an additional 77 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.
Every week, Bowers seems to make a play that would otherwise be completely unnatural for a tight end look completely routine. Monken has understandably tried to get Bowers the rock more consistently in the last couple of weeks, and it has been nothing short of enjoyable to watch.
The production Bowers is responsible for is elite to begin with but quickly becomes unheard of once it is put into perspective based on how many touches he receives.
In the first four weeks, he has garnered just 18 touches but has turned those opportunities into 358 total yards and five touchdowns. That type of efficiency is, in a word, mind-blowing.
Opposing defenses will do whatever they can to neutralize him, but Bowers’ versatility makes him nearly unstoppable. His gravity is also unique as it frees up Georgia’s other playmakers while teams focus on trying to keep him in check.
He has showcased elite receiving capabilities and is now deployed as a rusher. The last box to be checked is letting him attempt a pass, but do we need another quarterback controversy on our hands?
Bowers is the first player to earn consecutive weekly MVP honors, and with the type of hyper-efficient production he is capable of, he might not stop at two weeks in a row.
