False Off-season Narrative About Georgia
It seems the consensus nationally around UGA is their season hinges on the improvement of Jacob Eason. While I understand his pedigree as a recruit and QB's will always be the most recognizable player for media to latch on to, I just don't think that statement is true.
While it'd be great if Eason takes the next step forward, the defense and running game on paper is good enough to win the East even if Jacob is the exact same QB from last season.
Let's remember the last four QB's to win the SEC East were James Franklin, Matty Mauk, Treon Harris, and Austin Appleby. Not exactly household names.
Now I understand you can make a good case those team's defenses were better, but UGA clearly has the best backfield of those past East winners with the defense not far behind if at all.
