IF, if Coach Coley is recognized as our offensive coordinator, little doubt that there will be some changes in player position play, and offensive schemes that differ from Coach Chaney's system. Good or bad . . . . to be determined.
Do not believe that James Coley will go "spread, goofy, crazy". Coley does recognize the "value" of movement by the quarterback. That does not mean Tebow or several Oklahoma quarterbacks type movement. Anyone see Jake Fromm's video where the question was asked what he was going to work on more in the offseason? Jake said running more. To me that means breaking away from the "standard pro style method as a whole" . . . . basically sitting in the pocket. As good as our offensive line is and will continue to get better, they will not always be able to keep the defense from reaching the standard passing position a pro style quarterback takes. Add this to that . . . . firm believer that our offense for too long has devoted too much of the game plan to run, run and run. Texas game for example, tight ends could have had a field day if our game planning had actually opened with tight end play or . . . . second half changes made prior to returning to the field. My opinion.
Dwan Mathis, reminds me of Lamar Jackson, quarterback of the Baltimore Ravens . . . . how has that worked out, pretty well so far I think. With Fields leaving, Mathis arriving in Athens, believe we will be fine. Quarterback with legs means tight ends and wide receivers get open more often.

Will be interesting to see how this works out. Might be that Coach Coley does not entertain being offensive coordinator. If so . . . . would without a doubt agree with Barrett Sallee's opinion . . . . if anyone buys that, have some land for sale. If Coley should be disgruntled and leave, would not be the first time this has happened.
Barrett Sallee, a college football analyst with CBS Sports, recently gave Gran a lot of praise. “The way he coaches to his offensive talent makes him one of the top five offensive coordinators in the country right now,” Sallee said, per Kentucky.com’s John Clay.
Makes him one of the top five offensive coordinators in the country?? Based on what . . . . Kentucky running back Benny Snell Jr.? Guess that makes Coach Chaney also in the top five, maybe #1 in the country because he was the OC when Chubb and Michel and others were here.
Will say this . . . . Coach Coley might be too strong willed to be Kirby's OC. Some head coaches prefer folks that stay on the agree side of the leader, don't want leaders, want followers. Seems there were problems between Coley and Chaney. Kirby handed out "business cards" to both men that read offensive coordinator. Might this play out that Coach Kirby Smart is one hell of a recruiter/defensive coach and past that makes poor offensive decisions, like for example fourth down calls that prove to be critical. Just saying folks, call it like I see it.
What now happens with Dell McGee? Lots going on in Athens.
