    Mike, maybe you saw something in the game that I didn't regarding our receivers. With those safeties playing 15 yards off the line of scrimmage, I doubt anyone would have beaten them deep, including Brady to Moss. In addition to that, the front seven got enough disruptive pressure on JT that he had no time to go deep. My question is why didn't Monken call more crossing routes between the backers and safeties or slants? All of this is not just on the receivers. The biggest problem with the passing game was Clemson's 2 deep zone coverage.

    Spot on KBP. The "backers and safeties" are some of Clemson's fastest players for that reason. Monken could have been smoked by picks. He chose the standard check down routes, which worked pretty well. The problem was penalties! Good grief...10! If UGA got close to the house... a flag was thrown. UAB will try and cause the same penalties...they will watch the film carefully. I'm serious. Our WRs have been a weak link, along with OL. Also Podlesny is not kicking well..IMO. It happens. That was an easy shot for him at 34 yds centered. He shanks it really wide? UGA has other fine FG kickers they should try. Every point counts! Also, this is a game where JTD should shine. Rack up the points first half and employ the back-ups. Would love to see that happen.

    "Several veteran receivers transferred out ". THANKFULLY! Let's take a closer look. Matt Landers. Given multiple chances to contribute. Didn't. My least favorite Bulldog. Tommy Bush. I had high hopes for Bush. Could not stay healthy enough to contribute. Never a factor. Trey Blount.. Difficulty contributing much. Passed on the depth chart. Demetrius Robertson. MAYBE could've contributed something this year but his soft style would not have been effective vs Clemson physical DB's. All of these guys were passed on the depth chart. That is 4 scholarships for young players from players who had not, unfortunately, panned out. Those guys were not missed Saturday. The guys that were expected to be there at the start of spring were missed. Pickens, Blaylock, Jackson and Washington. Those are your 4 starting receivers.

    It's the first game of the season. Where do you get that Podlesny "isn't kicking well"? One missed kick and it's time to bench him and move on? Come on now.

    Same thought here. And, what is UGA going to do when the other teams copy that same defense? I know nobody has the defense that clemson has that we play, except maybe florida (hate to think that) and Ala (SECCG, hopefully), but any type , I am interested to see how they respond.

    They were not going 30 yards because of the 2 deep, but the oline has to give more time to still have recievers go deep, to move them back, so some can get in that 10-20 yard range. The ball came out so quick, nobody had time to even really get that deep, but 1 time. All on the oline.

    Another play that could of been bad was the holding penalty on Schaffer, when clemson committed a P.I. in the endzone. Instead of a 1st down at the 2, it was off setting. Wasn't it a missed fg, or was that the one that was made?

    GO DAWGS!!!!

    As far as I'm concerned, Clemson was pretty close to a mirror image to us. There was a reason they couldn't throw big passes just like we couldn't and it wasn't a problem with the QB. Only superstar WRs could've potentially made a difference.

    Next week should be interesting. I'm hoping Smart doesn't go with the whole "we'll just wear them out with our RBs and get a win" and instead focuses on really pushing our passing game to the limit and get some good plays in. I'd like to see some of our other QBs get some time in the game as well if we get a good solid lead quickly (which I hope we will).

    I love commenting so I can watch the same 2 people always give me a thumbs down. 😂🤣😂. Feelings must be kinda soft with them 2.

    Especially without giving a reason for it. I would love to know what I said that you disagreed with. Or was it because the feelings thing? 🤔
