    A bit of a comment and perspective on the "pass" vs. "run" debate (which, IMO, is a false debate), the notion that running backs, for one example, want to run the ball on every play (exaggeration to make a point, yes) is nuts. Orn the other hand, the idea that receivers don't appreciate LB's creeping up to stop the run.... hornswaggle. Both -- if they're SMART -- appreciate the other.

    Add the use of the TE in the offense. Ask Brady/Patriots. They can block but they can also release and take off. RBs can also swing out of the backfield (ask UGA how effective THAT can be).

    ALL parts work best when they work together. Meet Todd Monken.

    But here's the difference. WRs are not going to be targeted 34 times a game (see, e.g., Herschel). Due to the nature of the position and the natural progression of the offense (at which TJ is a yet-to-be-fully-appreciated master), they are going to have 3, 4, 5, 6 shots a game. And guess what... they can NOT drop the **** ball (hello, mister Burton)! Your job (to quote Steve Largent, one of the greatest in the history of the game, though a mid 4 sec guy), "is to get open and CATCH the ball."

    You do that, as a WR, and you're going to get all the glory you'll ever need at UGA and the NFL if you should be so fortunate.

    So... to this point, no reason UGA can't recruit WRs AND RBs. They are not mutually exclusive.

    IMO, there is no reason UGA should not be the hands down best team in the country (their only real rival, near future, Ohio State because of geography). It's not Alabama folks. Would you rather have the talent base in GA (which can also include FL because FL can't get out of their own way), or Alabama?

    I'd like to adopt a theme for this year: "No Excuses, Get 'Er Done!"
