    The 4th down sideline catch against Ohio St. to keep the drive alive..Unbelievable what this guy can do..GoDAWGS!

    All those are great moments, but no mention of him completely taking over the game in the 4th quarter against Auburn. His 1 handed grabs, including one called back, were spectacular. His ability to separate, when everyone knew the ball was coming to him, is impressive. His speed was on display when he took a pass up the middle against Tech and left the Tech DB'S looking like linemen trying to catch up. But the real wakeup moment for me was as a freshman against UAB, he caught a pass along the sideline and left everyone in the dust. Wow, what a moment. From then on we knew Brock was UGA'S football version of the Human Highlight Reel(no disrespect to Dominique Wilkins). Hard to pick just one.

    Up there with Trippi, Sinkwich, Walker for sure.

    All of the previous BB highlights were phenomenal and worthy of praise and demonstrative of a DGD.....but, what forever distinguished Brock Bowers for me as one of The BEST DGD's in Georgia's storied history was how he felt and treated his TEAM mates......".This off season Bowers declined a deal with Georgia’s Classic City Collective, which provides monetary and business support to all Bulldog athletes.......As such, he’d prefer whatever was going to go to him get put back in the pot to increase the amount for everyone else.".......The exclamation was made by his encouragement and support of Oscar Delp, throughout the season and his congratulatory excitement shared with Lawson Luckie and Pierce Spurlin in The Orange Bowl!

    Brock Bowers will forever be an ever lasting foundation of The Dawg Culture!

    So many moments. Will be a long time before we see another UGA player as good. The "Matrix Moment" was the biggest play of his career. I have 2 other choices. 1) swing pass against ? early in his freshman year when he outran the defense and DB's w/angles down the right sideline (80 yards?) serving notice that this young guy was a player. 2) medium post play vs GT where he ran through the GT D untouched for a long TD (70 yards?). Looked like a Forrest Gump moment where he was just faster than everyone else.

    The circus catch (leaping, twisting, fully extended, fingertip) he had early vs MI in the CFBPO semi may have been his best career catch.

    His explosion was different and what separated him from other players. Hopefully he regains that explosion he had pre-injury.

    The NFL guys will figure all that out. Such a negative take. You have to be getting paid by a rival to be posting such negative stuff all the time. Let me guess, you are yellow jacket fan?

  • BigDawg888BigDawg888 Posts: 1,429 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    My favorite is the Florida catch. The pure athleticism of making that catch is incredible.

    Negative? How? When BB came back he clearly had lost some (a lot?) of explosion. The SECCG proved he came back too soon. He wasn't the same player. Did he look the same to you?

    Can he regain all his previous explosion? IDK. I hope so because it is fun to watch BB play. Like the NFL, I'll believe it when I see it. IF BB runs a sub 4.50 40 at the combine I'll be shocked. If he runs a sub 4.60 I will be surprised.

    You expecting BB to be the same player tells me you were never a player. Injuries heal but you are never 100% like before. Once Joe Namath was a running QB at AL. Injuries took their toll to the point Namath was a statue in the AFL/NFL. How about Deion eventually losing his (turf) toe to surgery?

    Seems to me you have lost your objectivity. Thanks for confirming my suspicion that you are the 1 person down voting every one of my posts. Guess what? It doesn't bother me. Nor am I a GT fan.

    This is an impossible question for me. Every moment BB was in the Red & Black was my favorite. He kept everyone on the edge of their seat. At any moment he could deliver a freakish display of superhuman athleticism. He's simply on another level.

  • BigDawg888BigDawg888 Posts: 1,429 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I've given you an up vote when you earned it. Maybe 2 percent of your posts. Brock will run a 4.6 or faster.

  • BoydCrowderBoydCrowder Posts: 69 ✭✭✭ Junior

    I really like that GA Tech 77-yarder too. He makes the entire Tech team look like little kids chasing their uncle in a back yard game.

  • dazzledawgdazzledawg Posts: 177 ✭✭✭ Junior

    I'm gonna go with the long TD down the sideline his freshman year. Not sure who we were playing.

    I was like " Oh, OK"


    It was like America " Let me introduce you to Mr. Brock Bowers"


    Don't think I've felt depressed like this since Thomas Davis left.

    1. SC game - Bowers 78 yard TD pass from Bennett where he shakes off one defender and turns around another. 3rd TD that day for Brock.
    2. The 77 yard TD pass from Bennett against Tech. Bowers blew right past five defensive players.
    3. The dazzling catch against the Gators to score.
    4. The go-to guy in the 4th quarter of the Auburn game, scoring the go ahead TD with a 40 yard romp.
    5. There are so many great moments, this could go on and on.....

    Absolutely. Every time he touched the ball was a highlight reel waiting to happen.

  • UGADad20UGADad20 Posts: 1,657 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    2 out of 100 posts thumbs up confirms that you don't know much about football.

  • BigDawg888BigDawg888 Posts: 1,429 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I only played it for 11 years and been an avid fan my whole life. You do you Mr. Fake Georgia Fan.
