I read articles like the one below . . . . takes me back a few years on Dawgs.com "suggesting" that in the "future" the quarterback position might change. Change . . . . look and run more like some of the high school offenses. Seems to me that has become closer to the truth.
Let that go for now . . . . why? Because UGA Football has two "pocket quarterbacks" on campus (several but all pro style) two will see the playing field. Watching film, little doubt that Jake Fromm will tuck and run. After the 2016 Season was finished, Jacob Eason said publicly that he had always "known" that he could run. Jacob did not say "sprint", if I heard what he said correctly it was . . . . I can "escape" sometimes. We will see that from Jacob Eason this season. Take that to the bank. I said it, will be interested to see what others say "during the 2017 Season" when we watch Eason pick up a first down or put us in a third down situation when we are above 50/60/70%.
Cards are on the table, changes are not only happening on the "offensive line", Georgia Football is getting a much needed "facelift". Alabama and Clemson understood this a while back. Maybe some might disagree . . . . Mark Richt is doing the same thing in South Florida. That is for the "bleeding hearts".
Stop with this . . . . Every year there will be "versatile quarterbacks" coming out of high school . . . . do not sell the farm on one or two players. New England has made a "living" understanding "personnel management". Truth. I believe that Kirby Smart has a handle on that.
If you watched the Hudl video above, does it in any way make you and I think?
Said before, say again . . . . We have some very good offensive linemen in Athens now. First things first . . . . Pass protection, not easily learned. Run blocking, much easier, that comes with a "center" that "recognizes defensive fronts" and power football along with knowing the "count".
Case in point . . . . Arkansas has had some very good offensive lines. Sam Pittman understands that better than any offensive line coach we have "ever" had. Head coach at Arkansas understands the need for "power" on the offensive line. Arkansas however has not moved as far forward as many thought they would. Say this . . . . Arkansas has not had the running backs in "recent seasons" that stack up with our running backs. Fact.
Yep, football in Athens is changing . . . . Thank you Lord!
