    I’m glad it’s not us making these QB decisions. Beck was the Bama flip, Brock was the Oklahoma flip, and Gunner was the SC flip. At the time they all seemed to be the new, next best thing. For sure no one saw SB coming out of nowhere and JT transferring here. That I believe threw a curveball to the QB room, and now we just have too much QB. I know Ryan says he’s not decommitting, but wow, this is one loaded room.

    SB was brought in for depth and nothing more. No one on the coaching staff, apparently, believed he was coming back to be the guy, certainly not any of the QB's. You don't have the number 1 QB in the nation coming to sit for 2 seasons and learn. Maybe 1 year, but that's all.

    Development, Development, Development.......this is the reason our QB room is solid. There is no other program where these young men could receive the standard of instruction, competition and NFL growth than UGA. As I've said before, and I'm wondering why the writers of DN haven't hit on this fact, where in college football can a talented athlete aspiring to be a NFL QB be surrounded by elite receivers (split, wide, tight and RB's), Elite Blockers (on line and down field), Elite Running Backs (speed and power), Elite Defensive power consistently holding opposing teams to few points, Elite Coaching which game plans to accentuate every aspect of talent on the TEAM in order to win every competition, Elite Fan Base, hands down the best in college football, and lastly a culture which not only promulgates but constantly grows a Brotherhood of TEAM......there is NO other program where an athlete can attain the ultimate distinction of DGD.

    Even after all the hype, Arch Manning won't be the starting QB for Texas this season. There is simply too much to learn and such a drastic change from high school ball. Expect the same with Raiola.

    We'll lose at least one QB after this season, and that's not a bad thing. The cream rises to the top.

    I can't un-see all the parallels between Beck's trajectory and Mac Jones'. Both are intelligent, highly accurate pocket passers who are surprisingly mobile. Both were mid-level, four-star recruits who were patient and studious, and improved a lot as multiyear understudies.

    Jones did have more experience entering 2020 than Beck has now. He also had Devonta Smith, Metchie and Waddell at the other end of his passes.

    But Beck seems to have a slightly stronger arm strength, and his supporting cast is just as good as Jones' was -- especially when you consider a certain tight end who's name begins with "B-" and ends with "-rock Bowers."

    Now, if those parallels continue on to the point of Beck enjoying a breakout, 4,500-yard passing season ... Well, then, Carson will be able to enter the draft make room for Vandagriff or Gunner in '24. The best of those two is likely to be even better. And then we got Railo. It ain't fair. 😁

    Lincoln Riley, eat your ever-lovin' heart out! 😁

    On a side note: Puglisi has to be thinking about his options. He ain't no slouch. But he'd come to Georgia as, at best, No. 4 on the QB pecking order. I hate to say it, but he's just too great an athlete to sit that far down the bench.
