    I agree with you, @MikeGriffith, for once. JT and Pickens have demonstrated chemistry. Whereas, Stetson and Pickens clearly don’t. In my view, JT is probably the better QB to play with Pickens on the field… but I have my doubts as to whether Pickens will ever play another snap as a Bulldog.

    All season, I've read several articles from the media stating how there's a QB controversy at UGA. Now, magically, there's no controversy at the QB position.. 🙄

    This might be the fastest post I have ever seen! @Hemingwey you are operating at game speed this morning!

    If Pickens can have a great game or 2 from here on out it may be all he needs to secure a 1st or high 2nd round draft pick. If he doesn't play then the Combine becomes of utmost importance and it becomes more of a risk for NFL teams IMO. What about his knee? Is he as fast as he was before? Can he leap as high as before? Of course he could fly through the combine and turn heads. Having something on film post surgery in a game would go a long way for scouts, I would think.

    If Kirby persists with his ground-and-pound campaign...Stetson it is. Throw in the return of the missing receivers, including Pickens, and JT steps up. Emphasis. That is Kirby. Which QB fits his game plan each outing, he says. I have to believe Stetson will start today. I am having trouble seeing Pickens on the field against Tech....maybe a sneak peek. Even though he may be cleared, I see him as still fragile. George is an aerial artist with twists, turns and body contortions we cannot even imagine. Amazing receiver. Kirby's call.

    Let's take care of the Jackets by halftime. Our offense has been starting slow in recent games, and I'd like to see that change. I'd love to get as many starters as possible off the field by the 2nd half. Besides, I'm probably going to be watching the Ohio State game more than this one unless we let Tech hang around. But let's don't.

    GO DAWGS!! Wreck Tech!!

    “There’s no quarterback controversy at Georgia: Smart picks the quarterback, and the team plays behind whoever is under center.”

    lol, you gonna catch hell for this QB section Mike. But legit question, didn’t Kirby state early this season that he pretty much follows monkens preference at QB? I wanna say it was you who reported it. Am I making this up?

    Go dawgs today. Don’t care if we blow them out to oblivion. Let’s keep them under 10, score over 30 and show explosiveness in pass AND run game…. Most importantly get out injury free. Prediction 41-3 UGA.

  • Ddavis0777Ddavis0777 Posts: 384 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

    So you legit believe Pickens and JT combo is so strong that you flush down the drain a seasons worth of chemistry between Stetson/Bowers, McConkey, Mitchell, and namely Cook? Seems short sighted to me. Go Stetson.

    All I have to say is Go Dawgz sic'em wreck Tech put your foot on the gas pedal and don't let up until the last play of the Natty.😎

    Oh yea, I just remembered, Notre Dame beat these same weak bees last week 55-0. Our defense shouldn't allow a single point. The bees are just simply a horrible team, and Collins will most likely be on his way out after this season or next.

    @Ddavis0777 No, I don’t believe that. I am a big fan of Bennett and believe we can win it all with him as the starter. However, I have no doubt that JT’s passing style is much better suited to producing output from Pickens. 😉

  • BEACHDAWGBEACHDAWG Posts: 2,884 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    When we lost in Jax in 2020, we didn't have a qb to come in when Stetson got hurt. To see Daniels play and play well today doesn't point to "flushing" this season's team chemistry. It would solidify the team chemistry with the players knowing there is not a weakness at the position. We need all of our players ready. HBTFD!

    That paragraph stuck out like a sore thumb lol I'm predicting 45-0 Tech won't score, only way they score is a possible turnover by UGA deep in their own territory..GoDAWGS!

  • Ddavis0777Ddavis0777 Posts: 384 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

    Got ya. Guess I misread. I’m a little sensitive to those who so quickly and senselessly want to move on from Bennett. I’m a bit of an underdog small guy story myself and had a ton of success when I played (a similar style to Bennett). I think he’s done a great job and we should stick with him. It’s the right thing to do. The team is behind him and it’s time this ENTIRE insufferable fanbase was.

    This said, we are VERY LUCKY to have JT ready to go. And Pickens cleared… even if he’ll never play another down (which is my suspicion), this gives opposing defenses a whole new dimension to plan to defend. Go dawgs today.
