ATHENS — Given Georgia’s history of facing backup quarterbacks in Mercedes-Benz Stadium, you would think the 2022 defense would be expecting the possibility of facing Garrett Nussmeier on Saturday.

    "A fully healthy Daniels would pose a tough test for this Georgia defense. "

    Daniels has 2566 passing yards for the season. Exactly what "tough test" would he pose?

    You usually have some intelligent and objective insights. This is not one of those.

    If you add JD's 824 rushing yards and 11 rushing TD's to his 2566 passing yards and 15 passing TD's (2 INT's) equates to someone who is not single dimensional and will definitely pose a tough test for UGA's D. Containing JD is THE key for this game.

    JD's is a very dangerous duel threat when healthy. He is avg'ing about 70 ypg. He has run wild against multiple teams this year. He finished the game after he was hurt last week. He'll be ready on saturday.

    Watched the LSU/aTm game last night. Essentially the big "upset" was decided by 2 plays. 1) an aTm scoop and score and 2) an apparent TD pass that LSU caught in the corner of the endzone with under 2 mins. After a long replay review ruled incomplete (debatable) when the LSU WR let loose as he hit the ground (after taking 2 steps).

    The LSU QB's ankle injury impacted his play late and limited him. But he did finish the game. Prior , he had been running wild all over the aTm D. The LSU OL was surprisingly sound. They looked good. Good RB's, good wr's. Former Dolphin Jason Taylor's son is their TE.

    LSU won over AL on a 25 yard QB scramble in OT. The guy is fast and elusive.

    LSU D looked more bend but don't break than dominant. Their DB's looked pretty sound. 2 circus catches by Moose Muhammed were big momentum swingers. LB and pass rush is their strength. Only aTm RB Achane's Olympic speed allowed him to elude the LSU D and have a big game.

    LSU is a tough team. SMondon better have his track shoes on if he is the UGA D's QB spy. UGA needs to play sharper than they have been, This could be a 4 quarter game. If somehow UGA ends up minus 2 in the TO margin this game could get downright scary.

    A team full of 4 and 5 star players - they are a good match. UGA needs to find dominance.

    Okay, getting tired of all the overhype. It is becoming nauseating because everyone is just regurgitating the same old tropes.

    Just go into ATL with focus and physicality and play like the current Champions you Dawgs already are.

    Leave it all out on the field and everything will take care of itself.

    SECCG will be a Dawg fight. LSU will field Daniels as he has the feet. I agree, and have agreed, Daniels must be hurried and contained. Seems probable that those two plays swung things TAMU's way against LSU. Although I do believe the outcome would have been the same. In retrospect, you could say those "if" things about many games. Looking forward, UGA must play a complete game. LSU wil be up for this one. A given. UGA's OL has got to come through early and often....must score TDs. Defense, again, must stop Daniels....he is "elusive." Play tight and Daniels will make you pay. Also, Bennett is actually somewhat of a mirror of Daniels. Both capable of solid RPO performances.

    This should be a close game. UGA needs a better first quarter performance than GT. Go Dawgs!!!

    Texas A&M's front four made Daniels life miserable. Thats what we have to do. LSU was never going to win that game.

    UGA must do the same reddawg. LSU lost a couple of breaks but the outcome, as I said, was likely never in doubt. Let's see Jaylen Carter, et al, put a hurt on LSU OL. I still believe this will be a closer game than the spread.

    On O, I think LSU's going to have a problem containing our run game. They give up 144 yards on the ground per game. Yes, Perkins has become a major disrupter. But the way our line and TEs have been overpowering defenses and the way K-Mac and company are running, I just think we'll be able to pound out quite a few yards. And, of course, if they stiffen for the run game by concentrating defenders in the box, they'll be opening up space for our pass game. Just hoping the right Stetson Bennett shows up -- but he usually does for the big games.

    On D, we've limited a lot of mobile quarterbacks this year by keeping in front of them. It's true that we haven't faced quite the QB rushing threat that Daniels is. But neither has Daniels faced a defense that contained Hooker, Levis, Ashford, Nix and Richardson as well as we have.

    I have no doubt that Daniels will start. I have no doubt that Daniels will do his best to allude our Defensive pursuit. I have no doubt that he will be somewhat successful.....BUT that first solid hit will change everything.....he'll be thinking that with one more year of eligibility, a gimpy ankle will open the door to Nussmeier or Howard for next year.....I better duck out and let these guys get some "needed" experience in the come loss!!!
