    I thought Monken tried too hard to pass the ball and should have tried the power running game more. The two toss sweeps they ran both resulted in 10 yrd gains. When they finally committed to the run with less than 5 mins left in the game, the O-line was able to exert its will and run out the clock. I wish they had tried it sooner.

    If they had relied on the running game, there would be plenty of apoplectic commenters typing away, taking issue with it. It wouldn't matter what the outcome was. It would be "same old Georgia," "Kirby needs to keep his hands off the offense," "we need to be practicing the passing game," "that's not going to cut it against..." blah blah blah.

    Low level play calling, poor throws, etc,etc. To me the OC and maybe the receiver coach seem to be scapegoating receivers.

    You must grasp to idea that ''relying on'' the running game would have put a bullseye on running backs. It's sort of a big thing to mix plays in a way that limits the opponents' ability to key on any one type of play. The running game was used pretty well, the passing game was a joke.

    Sure, have Clemson's entire defensive front 7 converging on the ball carrier, super idea.

    Kirby has a strong tendency to get too conservative on offense in tough close games.

    Why does Bama consistently have receivers wide open ? Till Saturday night I thought Monken had a good grasp of flooding zones, moving picks,etc,etc. Why we ran such simple plays is beyond me.

    My biggest concern is, what's the saying, "it's a copycat league". I know there isn't any team we play with the defensive chops as clemson, except bama and maybe florida, but what game plan is UGA going to have if all the teams play some sort of the same type of "soft zone"? Are the recievers going to be able to beat it? Because remember, when UGA lost to SC, every team after that played the same defense and Fromm and the offense struggled in the passing game. I know other issues were present, but still, it caused problems.

    But who knows, maybe CKS was playing it that way to "save" the offensive play calling for games when the DAWGS need it. Maybe he knew his defense could handle clemson's offense. At least that is what I want to believe. And I will. Makes for a better day.

    GO DAWGS!!!!

    It is way too early to draw any conclusions about most teams, this includes UGA and Clemson. There are just too many questions at this point. Given the schedules it is going to be hard to get answers to these questions in the next 3 or4 games. The one thing we do know is Clemson has made making the playoffs very difficult for themselves.

    I for one believe Clemson has been in state of decline for some time. Every time they play a team with the same or nearly the same level of talent, they normally lose. This started with LSU followed by ND, OSU, and now the dawgs. What we all saw Saturday night is Clemson is not a playoff team.

    @E_Roc good observation. You are spot on with your analysis. One would hope both passing and rushing are effective when needed and when called upon to be executed.
