    I would feel better about Kirby's statements if he had not included the "Whining" and "Not getting the ball"....That seems to imply that there are people on the team that do this

    @BoulderDawg Personally, I didn't get that from his statement. I think it is more of a general consensus of the current culture of the kids nowadays, because the culture has turned into me, me, me.... but i definitely wouldn't be surprised if a player, from any team, would do that.

    I think Cook can help but only so much, because they will be expecting that anytime he is in the game that there's a 50-50 chance he gets the ball. I think we are going to have to use a hurry up offense and throw quick slants to keep them off balance. Fromm can't depend on back shoulder throws all game with Cager and Pickens out for at least part of the game. I think we also will have to contain Edwards-Helaire if we are going to have a chance at winning this game. He is their #1 weapon both in passing and rushing.

    Kirby needs to pull out all the stops on offense if we are going to beat LSU. Fromm can’t miss on his first 5 or 6 throws . We can’t run the ball up the middle each series on 1st and second down . This game will be decided on two factors : Fromm’s ability to pass and innovated play calling

    Swift and Cook ..... Cook is faster than Herrien......since Cook is used in special teams. Also, pecking order is important at UGA. However, I would use every player resource I have against LSU.....LSU knows UGA WRs are a weakness...they will try and smother them. They will stuff the box as every team to date has tried. UGA needs to become more"versatile." A must really against LSU's explosive offense that has dominated most teams this year and they field a formidable defense. Smart says things off the cuff that can be misinterpreted. I do not believe for a segundo UGA players are whiners and complainers! GO DAWGS!!!

    KS, is admitting that he doesn’t know how to put this unique talent to work. Let’s not be fooled, we are at the END of the season. I pray that he doesn’t transfer out. Our horrendous offense has made the decision for exceptional targets going forward. Nobody wants to watch RB’s run into stacked walls, ask Swift. Jake Fromm is being to indecisive and timid. His arm strength seems weaker nowadays as well. Cook will get killed with this Mr. Rogers play calling. May the D be endowed with supernatural power because we are going to need it!

    It boggles the mind that they haven’t figured out how to use him. I’m actually quite surprised (and thankful) that he hasn’t transferred. He doesn’t need to wait his turn. If he’s good and the offense is struggling, what the heck are they waiting for?

    Maybe he's mature enough to recognize the superior talent that is more experienced. That is the message I got from the tone and words of his answers. Kirby has to sit someone else in order for him to be in, who would you sit - Cager, Pickens, Swift, Herrien? I trust Kirby!

    Cager is out so the next leading receivers are Blalock and Pickens. Jackson is plagued with drops, Landers can't run routes or catch passes in his hands, and D Rob hates to hit or get hit. Why not go with Blalock and Pickens with Cook in the slot and lets have a coming out party for Cook's ability to catch and run after the catch to go along with a physical assault on anyone that gets in his way. Go Dawgs!

    Who? James Cook? Never heard of him? Seriously, we've been under utilizing J Cook all season. Hopefully we'll do something other than send him up the middle. Let's get him out in space, maybe a wheel route or two?

    Four months into the season and coaches are still trying to get Cook more involved? Not sure what to make of that. Is our OC having that hard of a time designing plays for him? Come on coaches, make this the week you accomplish that goal.

    I'm at a loss as to the lack of productivity on offense. This has to fall at the feet of James Coley, we will see what Smart is really made of at the end of this season. I think he's going to be forced to find another OC, Jake Fromm's regression is not all on Jake or his wide receivers. Our recruiting is going to start suffering if it already hasn't with the continued poor performances and Coley can't seem to find any answer as to how to fix it.

    I have hoped all season a light would come on and the offense would find some rhythm but so far it really hasn't. I hope it can change Saturday but I have to ask myself why would it? This game could, probably will get away from us if our offense continues to perform like they have.

    A spark is a great thing , However I would rather see Zeus step up and keep showing the power runs up the middle

    He punishes people almost every time he touches the ball

    It’s hard to spark the team while sitting on the bench.

    Well the good thing about this games is this. If we struggle moving the ball and lose then Kirby will have to fix this issue because there is nowhere to hide it anymore. Teams are loading the box, Jake is struggling to hit the side of a barn at times. He is the check down king. Well if LSU runs us out of the dome then we will have a new playbook next year and some changes will have to be made. The Defense is elite all the way through. But why isn't our offense? I'll take an **** win guys, it's been **** all year. Watching the defense is more entertaining than watching us with the ball. But a win is a win!
