Default 3RD and Long

IMHO: We won't be able to Win a Conference Championship unless we stop giving up the 3rd and Long. I don't know if its the young players inability to play the scheme or the scheme itself but it has been a constant all season.

that is a weak point in the D. But teams will scheme that due to the soft coverage.

Drives me crazy. Mostly due to putrid play by the LBs who aren't blitzing (ever?). They can't cover or tackle. Skai has been the one brightspot, imo.

The way UGA is playing it looks like they'll be back in ATL anyway.

Our D is soft. All there is to it. Hope we can force turnovers and our O can be more consistent.

They'll need Missouri to lose to both Ole Miss and Texas A&M. Hoping if it's not us, it's Missouri.


I don't know why you guys are surprised by the Georgia/Florida game. Florida's offense is worse than any offense we've had since Spurrier has been here. Their defense is like our 2007 defense, really strong to start the year but then so many injuries and is very average by the end of the season.

Our defense could play like the 1985 Bears and we wouldn't win a championship with this offense and special teams.

they didnt convert anything over 3rd and 5 until that final td drive and that was a screen pass and then a scramble where diggs fell for the okey doke. those were just two examples of guys just not coming up and making a tackle from the 2nd level and the secondary.

Default Re: 3RD and Long

crowcutta is correct.

They didn't get anything over 5 yards on 3rd until garbage time in the fourth quarter.

Going 1 for 11 on third down on offense is a MUCH bigger problem. Not sure why people continue to cry about our defense and give the offense a complete pass.
