    Great picks and I believe all 3 will step it up. Plus Milton coming back healthy may have an impact people are not realizing yet. You can't stop a healthy Milton.

    From The Athletic: "The big thing, though, would be the other side of the ball. The defense needs to stop having two drives a game where it lets the other team down the field and also needs to do better in the red zone at not letting opponents score touchdowns 73 percent of the time. (That’s the worst rate in the SEC.)"

    What would be bad: were UGA to react to this with a "well we need to run the ball more" mentality when it hasn't been established that they have either the 2021 offensive line or the 2017 tailbacks to dominate on the ground.

    What would be good: were UGA to react to this by increasing the role that Dillon Bell plays in the passing game.

    Its gonna take more than 3 stepping up their game. Pearce, Delp, and the entire WR room is gonna need to step up their games. Sure Bobo will tweak game plans a bit to involve other more.

    Scheming is now the name of the new Bowerless game. Bobo has his hands full. Teams no longer have to double on Bowers opening up other passing lanes for UGA. Plus, his blocking ability. Sorry guys, I see a loss down the road. FL may be one. Bowers was that important. He bailed UGA out more than once...or there may have already been loss or close. Mizzou is another potential loss. Even Ole Miss. As I look back, Bowers was the centerpiece of the offense. Many others will now have to step up. Who are they? McConkey is one. Lovett another. Delp...hopefully. Ra Ra too. I agree on Dillon Bell as well. There is hope.

    Reading the comments here and the various player names mentioned. YES when Ladd is fully healthy and switched on he is Very good. Hard to stop.

    I fully agree with the player names mentioned here. But allow me to add one not mentioned at least yet. Marcus RosemyJacksaint !! He has shown flashes of not just good but Great !! He can and I think will be a true weapon !!

    Yes losing Brock Bowers really hurt the Dawgs quest for success, but these Dawgs are Far from being out of this race !! As I said on another thread the Defense needs to ramp up Their game Big Time to support their Brothers on the O !! Players AND Coaches need to ramp up their game !! Go Dawgs !!

    Lastly out the window goes the “ weak schedule narrative” !! All of the remaining teams are ranked right now except GT !!

    I haven't seen much about Milton, but he is a big key. When he's healthy, he has the potential to be a game-changing back...he runs with so much authority, and it has been frustrating to seem him sidelined so often. If he ever gets back out on the field more consistently, look out.

    One thing for sure about Beck, he’s fearless !! Man he put a hit on the Vandy player that made the INT !! And No he’s not Stetson, but he can run. He’s got mobility in the pocket while he’s scanning the field looking for open guys. Least he’s not a statue back there !! Beck has really done well, all in all, and the thing is I think he’s gonna get even better !!

    I think Rara is the guy who we will be seeing a lot of along with JackSaint.

    Also, CJ Smith may break out in the next few weeks as I think he has earned more snaps and is more reliable than Arian.
