    Just my personal observations but my assessment is that BVG is at this point a 1st read QB, and if his 1st option isn't there his tendency is to take off and run. Sometimes he may hit a guy on the right side of the field if he's moving that way but in a real game he's going to rely on his natural instinct and that is to put his head down and run.

    I'm certainly fine with any QB tucking and running if no one is open or if the protection breaks down, but it's just a tough thing to do for an inexperienced QB to spend that extra second or two and look for his 2nd and 3rd reads. The game only slows down by playing in real situations.

    You can go back and look at even a few of SB's throws and see where he didn't see a receiver wide open and chose another guy instead, even as experienced as SB is.

    THe best receivers will want a QB who can give them that extra second to get open and not just tuck and run thereby limiting targets for them. That IMHO would put a damper on recruiting WR's.- Go Dawgs!

    Good story, Mike. I got nothin' contrary. Lol

    However...you did fail to mention that their G-Day performances cannot be compared, due to the personnel available to each QB, while in charge of the 1s team offense. In fact...Beck had a statistical advantage, with the tools available to him...verses the tools available to BVG.

    I believe Kirby and Bobo did that, to give "both guys" some confidence, heading into Summer OTA's. Each QB was allowed the opportunity to showcase what "they do best", on the big stage. Beck, "the cerebral pocket-passer"....and, Vandergriff, the "fleet-footed gunslinger". Stockton was kept in his place...for now. Lol

    I believe BVG's numbers would have looked at least as good, if not better...had, Bowers and McConkey been available to get the defense's attention. Who knows...he may have run all over the 1st team defense....and, THAT would be bad for their confidence. Lol

    I knew there was more to BVG than met the "eye"...although, what the "eye" meets, when watching him play, is pretty darned good, too. This kid could start...easily.

    With 3 qualified QBs in the QB room...all with a unique skillset and varying degrees of experience....UGA is in an absolute great position to win a 3rd Natty in 3 years. Especially, considering their schedule, talent, depth. and, again, because it bears repeating..."not 2, but...3 qualified QBs in the QB room". No other team in the Power 5 can credibly, make that claim. IMO

    All of the reasons I mentioned, including some, I didn't...gives the Dawgs a huge advantage over other teams in the SEC, this year. UGA is the only team capable of beating UGA, in 2023. IMO

    Can you imagine what UGA could do to this year's schedule....with last year's offense and the 2021 defense? Or, just last year's "team", which had a pretty darned good defense, in their own right. And, this year....they're expected to be even better???
