I keep hearing this but I for one was impressed with Thompson. He had a few high throws but who doesn't, I thought he looked very good and gained his composure even though we were being whipped. I have no issues with the offense besides wanting to see Williams. Especially if Davis is going to mail it in or be hurt all year.

There's no excuse any coach could give for not putting in David. I'd be really pissed and frustrated if I were him. He was willing to RS last year. Play the damn kid

Default Re: David Williams??

It should be a Davis and Williams backfield with about a 70-30 split. Of course, this is all assumption being as we haven't seen Williams play yet. But Davis isn't durable enough to carry 30+ times a game for the duration of a season. We are going to need to do our very best to establish a serious ball control offense. If our OL is half as good as they are supposed to be, if Davis can return to his early-mid season form from last year and if Williams is as good as we hope, this may be possible. Our D just isn't going to be good enough to be on the field for any meaningful length of time.

I'm not sure Mike will get back to his early form from last year. I hope but have a feeling he'll have lingering issues all year. Play Williams.

"At the very least, when we knew we weren't going to come back, we could have at least put guys like Williams, Orth, Mitch, Noso, etc... in to let them get some reps. Praying we see them get some reps against ECU one way or another." Quote from "CockyInGa"

My thought exactly!

His pass blocking isn't good. His running skills are 4th best on the team.

Yes, anyway that's what we've been hearing David needs work on. Hopefully he's almost there. Although 3 scores behind and playing catch-up, our defense needed a rest and running a series or two and staying out on the field longer might possibly have impacted their offense's tempo but unlikely. Hope our D practiced tackling today.

A lot of this back-and-forth about the running backs, quarterbacks, wide receivers, and OL can't block is just irrelevant chatter to me. We couldn't tackle. We played soft and tentative on defense. We let them get off about 100 plays, none of them long, but we only stopped them about 3-4 times. Whether or not our offense was firing full-tilt doesn't matter. We actually exploited what they gave us be scheming to stop the run. We just didn't play sharp on third down on offense, and let it get away on third down on defense - mostly with poor tackling, not poor alignment. They caught the ball in front of us and never got hit hard. We didn't close on the ball or the receiver/carrier. We played some "I got him; you take him; Doh!" There will be a lot of film school and drills ahead of game prep for ECU.

maybe Williams hasn't developed into a good blocker yet, and that's why SOS didn't let him play.....

When you're down by 28 at home in a game like this, you do what you can to get creative and find ways to win. Period.
There's some truth to that, but Spurrier hates the power running game. Elliott talked him into it at UCF last year, but not this time.

It has probably been said but UGA played 4 backs today, 2 of which are true freshman. No reason why we can't give carries to Williams.

Maybe Shon Carson shows something in practices that he just can't translate to games. That's my only idea as to why he's even seeing the field.

Honestly if David Williams isn't good enough to beat out Shon Carson then he isn't 1/4th as good as advertised. And if he is good enough, he should've been playing Thursday night

I don't see how Williams could possibly be worse than Carson at kickoff return.
