I think we can agree that having Ramsey standing there on the sideline, only one play away from the huddle, is a HUGE hit. [Heck . . . after his last performance, I'd take ANYONE POSTING ON THIS FORUM over BR!] But I'm not going to let that worry me until I see #12 jogging out onto the field of play. THEN I'll worry . . . Oh boy . . . I will DEFINITELY worry then . . . :(

Weak from a depth standpoint, but barring injury.. the QB position shouldn't cause us to lose this game.

The OL though, could.. and I am still not impressed with them after ApSt

growl,

Losing your #1 QB that is heads and shoulders above your backup is a big hit. Losing your #1 QB to another obvious starting QB waiting in the wings isn't nearly as big a deal. Clearly Fromm showed last week that he wasn't planning on missing a beat. Will he take his lumps? Yeah probably, but honestly, I'm far more tolerant of a true freshman coming in and taking his lumps vs. a heralded 2nd year all-everything QB that simply isn't where he should be in his development. Does that mean I'm ready to shelf Eason? No, not necessarily, nor do I think CKS is ready to either. Now if we were losing Eason and welcoming in Ramsey, I'd be ready to start the bourbon about 4 hours before kickoff just to make sure it's set in good and proper to endure the game. We can debate this all day long. Is it a "hit" to us? Sure. Is it a season-jeopardizing "hit" to us? Not by a long shot.

Wart,

It really is as simple as the line isn't it? I hear the talking heads yak yak yakking about the intricacies of offensive play scheming and I just want to pull my hair out. It's no big State secret that the lines are where football is won or lost - particularly in the SEC. Period. No further discussion. And if we want to make some real noise in the East and some noise in Hotlanta in December, then we had damned well better start making noise on the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball. Defensive is light years ahead of offensive line. When I see the o-line start playing SEC caliber ball, then I'll start getting a little excited about the prospects. Right now, they're playing Chick-Fil-A or Outback Bowl football.

I lost interest in that type of football about ten years ago.

I don't think we took a big hit at all by losing Eason. Word was that he was making his reads way quicker and planting his feet into his throws. Well maybe he was doing all that in practice but when it was game time I saw the same hiccups I saw all last season and for that matter in HS too. With that being said I wish every single Dawg the very best! BUT it's a team sport and first and foremost I want what's best for the team in the long run. And I think Fromm is the man for job. It will not come without a learning curve...

Our O line has to bring it Sat night or we will be in all sorts of trouble offensively. The play of the o line will dictate the outcome of the game.

GO DAWGS
