    CKS in cover your you know what mode? Getting worried about some folks transferring? Can't develop the right people? RIght now I'd value Murray's opinion over CKS, or someone like David Green - from someone whose actually played the position and played it well. Who trust Kirby with the evaluation of the QB"S ? Can I see a show of hands?

    If JT was to start this week, I would ask KS why not during the fla game? Now due to PPD I have a bit more understanding if you can get JT ready, but come on! Good for one week but not before...........

    I thought he was supposed to be pretty dang good before he got here. Like all the others who subsequently seem to need so much more development once they get in our room.

    Yeah I'm starting to get there. Kinda hope to see us get as many games in as possible though. This team needs the work that only in-game scenarios can provide.

    Loved your comments on the POD cast yesterday. It is how many of us feel, so many questions to be answered. I believe we have the answers and up until now, it has been more of the same!

    I also believe the talent we have in that room is more than adequate, maybe even the possibility of running the Monken offense like It should be run.

    Hoping that we find a solution that gives our kids a chance to win the game!

    How great would it be to see the scoreboard with 35-45 point on our side, on a regular basis, somebody said that yesterday and I agree, it is the "New College Football" minimum to be able to compete!

    Thanks again!

    Honestly, I'm not sure of "how" good he was upon arrival. He was being heralded as "the man" after his junior year of high school. But during his senior season there were a lot of struggles, hence his crazy drop in the recruiting rankings. So, I'm not saying the kid isn't talented, he is on scholly at a Power 5 school, I just don't think the perception of him or his talent is the same as it was 2 years ago.

    Also, I don't know that our qb room needs that much more development and/or there is a qb development issue once they get here. Of course, there is an issue now due to the circumstances. But, my personal feeling, is that there has been mismanagement of the talent once they get here leading to transfers, etc. (Eason, Fields, Plumlee [who never arrived], Newman). Think of it this way, if Fields or Eason becomes our starter at any point after Fromm's ascension, then there is a good chance that we aren't even having this conversation. Instead, I feel (As we are seeing now) that Kirby gets stuck in a "that's my guy" position and is unable to give other guys a fair and legit chance of overtaking the leader. We saw it with Fromm, Fields leaves, and we are seeing it with Stetson now. The other thing to think about is the amount of different OC's and QB coaches our guys have had over the past 4 years. Continuity goes a long way as well.

    Go Dawgs!

    Kirby certainly does not tip his hand to the fans and armchairs. Getting more reps, really good player-Beck. Kirby has placed Beck as a true freshman good for his sophomore year....always getting better. Right now, I would wager that Beck is every bit as good as Mathis....just a tad more raw. That is how Kirby rates his players....reps and improvement. Few come in and play right "out of the box." Some frosh do see field time as they did this year because of injuries. Now the comments will try and cipher what Kirby means singling out Beck as: "I think he’s growing, getting better, which is what we challenge every player to do in our program.” Means what it meant months ago...Beck is getting some reps and improving. JT same. Getting reps with team 1 and improving his accuracy and mobility. I see JT stepping in against Miss. State. Kirby's glazed eyes for Bennett have cleared up some. IMO.

    The sad thing bout the game being postponed is stetson well be healthy next week so we will never get to see what the others can do

    Classic coach speak. Justin Fields needed more development as Jake was the man of the moment. What a waste of a great State of Georgia talent whose development as a bulldawg were mostly hand offs to our back up running backs. Please. Our current QB room is what it is , but it did not have to be.

    Everyone should know by now that Kirby is not going to give an good assessment of a players development. Every player Kirby has been asked about, he respond with the same answer. That they are growing and getting better. He said that about Bennett and Mathis, we seen the results. And, I hope a player is getting better and not worst. Then it would speak volume on how the staff are in developing the teams talent.

    The buzzards are constantly circling Bama, picking off their assistant coach talent every year... and yet that program is perennial natty contenders. Top tier talent is top tier talent, be it coaches or players... just gotta let 'em shine.
