Default The game we should not have lost: Georgia

Yes, we should have and could have won this game, period. The opportunities where there, many times. We simply did not capitalize on them.


What went wrong:

-Never really pressured Aaron Murray the entire game. With the exception of two plays I vividly remember (the Clowney and Roberts sacks) Murray had plenty of time all game long.
-Could not stop the run game. Gurley rushed for 134 yards or so. They controlled the ground and the clock.
-Lack of defensive pressure and dominance along the front line. The defensive front looked lackluster and mediocre most of the game and allowed UGA's line to contain them the whole day.
-The Clowney Factor: .....Looks like there is something to what the experts are saying....for the second straight week we saw him gassed and out of breath at times.
-Allowed the "big plays" to happen. When Murray went long we blew the coverage.
-Never took advantage of creating turnovers. No one was interested in getting INT's and punching the ball out to cause fumbles.


**Notice, I did not say much of anything at all about the offense....

That is because our offense IMO played a good enough game to put us in a position to win, with the exception of Shaw's fumble, the O played and executed well. I did sometimes feel we went to the Shaw/delayed run a few too many times, however with this style of offense, that is what you get and it's part of it. We probably should've passed more, as this worked well against the UGA defense when we did especially late in the game.

All in all the main reason we lost is because UGA's O-line contained our D-line, never allowing much of any pressure to Murray and allowing Gurley to do as he wished and never stopping any big plays. We allowed the UGA offense to stay on the field too long.

So, for the first time in many many years, I can say our defense cost us the game. Whammy, you have some serious work to do. Hopefully this will be an "early season wake-up call" for those guys to go to work, make adjustments and find ways to be more competitive. Because in the SEC, as well all know, you don't have to have a great offense to win game, but if you don't have much of a defense, you are in BIG trouble.

....As always, Go COCKS.

Default Re: The game we should not have lost: Georgia

Dawgs studied film and exploited. QB wasnt pressured much 'cause he learned he cant hold the ball and survive against Carolina so he was quick hitting. Nobodys gonna stop the dawgs on the ground this season. That put them in the drivers seat.

and we should not have won 'cause Carolina cant win a shoot-out (imo). D is our game, hold opponents to less than 20 and grind it out.

Default Re: The game we should not have lost: Georgia

My perspective from way high up in the stands at Sanford. We most certainly SHOULD NOT have won that game. Could have .....yes. I will tell you that the throws Murray had to make were throws that almost any FBS Qb will make on a consistent basis. It was that easy & there was never one pass he completed that made me go wow. My confidence of USC stopping UGA had they even needed to score late is damn near zero. The pitch on 4th down at the goal line was a horrid play call. OL played really well & gave Conner good protection. Shaw played very well to, probably took off too early on occassion but overall played plenty good enough to win had the defense showed up at all.

Default Re: The game we should not have lost: Georgia

We have a very good ground attack, and we were starting a RF at Center and we still had a very good OL performance. Not sure why we didn't pound UGA more with the run to give our defense some rest?

Agree. Like you said, it would have provided more rest of our Def, and kept Murray and Co. off the field.

Georgia was a better team. They won. Not complicated.

Well, that's definitely taking the easy way out of the discussion. No need to analyze anything further. LOL

LOL...For real?????? NEVER in this game did we look like the better team. We went down 17-3 and LUCK from UGA screwing up let us back in the game. We were chasing all game to stay in it. We were out classed in every aspect of the game. It was an embarrasement on the defensive side and the offense couldnt keep up in a shootout. We never should have won this game.

Default Re: The game we should not have lost: Georgia

I don't understand the reasoning for why we should have won it. It's not like we were not trying to do those things. Before the game I thought we were clearly the better team. Well, I was really freakin wrong. Maybe we beat them at home, I don't know. But I can't say we are better than them.

Default Re: The game we should not have lost: Georgia

I'm not trying to bash, but I'm not reading another thread that says anything about something being wrong with clowney.

he's not out of shape, he's trying as hard as he can, he's getting doubled every play.

if you want to know why he cant get loose, watch the last 2 games again and watch almost every snap they run away from him, they slide protection to him or double him up.

if the rest of the defense would step up and make some plays they will have to turn him loose some.

I would like to take up for Connor. he had the ball punched out as he went to the ground. thats not the same as mishandling the ball. he had that one bad play, but you need to think about how many times your offense was sitting at a 3rd and 6 or worse, and he takes off running for a first down. without that, you don't keep going down the field and score, you punt.

Two plays if one doesn't happen & it could have been worse.
1. Botched punt
2. Long run by Davis
