How are UGA fans feeling about Eason doing well in game 1 for Warshington?  Good for him?  Who cares? 

I'm happy for him personally, same with Fields.  They were both very talented players obviously and deserve their shot.  Neither said anything bad about UGA.

Fields had some wide open WRs to hit, and he hit them.  I knew he could throw a nice pass.  Eason has NFL potential in every respect.  I'm still somewhat surprised that boring ol' Fromm could bench them both.

Fromm reminds me of AJ McCarron's 2-year stint as Bama's starter.  Year 1, don't screw up, be efficient...and both did.  Year 2, okay, we'll let you go win a few games for us, but be as efficient....and both did.  However, we get to see what Fromm can do in a 3rd year as starter.

He's not flashy obviously, and flashy "sells".  He somehow beat out two flashier QBs who are now starting elsewhere at programs in the hunt.

I have seen his draft status all over the place, to the extent that matters beyond a curiosity.  With the OL and RBs they have, a half decent QB should be able to do pretty well.

Right, any one of us could be passable at QB with RBs averaging 6+ yards per carry. 


But UGA has been Smart - they could have easily messed things up and put Eason back in or let Fields take over...but they didn't mess with what's worked.  So many times, when things are working, teams throw a wrench (albeit talented wrenches) in their own cogs and muck things up.

what else is there to say besides the sec (at least the bottom half) took one on the chin this weekend.

au with a good comeback win, but it also highlighted a lot of areas for much needed improvement.

bama sluggish, but found rythm quickly.

didn't catch much of uga/vandy, but heard uga looked great early, then coasted.

didn't catch aTm or lsu either. scoreline looks about right, though.

tenn... lol.

usc disappointed, imo.

ole miss definitely disappointed. blew that one.

mizzou, i didn't buy them as a great team, but i expected them to at least beat wyoming. wyoming isn't a gimme, but still.

arky/msu/uf/uk all won, but unconvincingly.


overall, uga is still clear fav in east. in west, bama is there, with lsu/aTm/au looming. we'll know soon enough for aTm.

I'm happy for Eason, he was a good teammate and handled things the right way after his injury and losing his starting spot. Hope he continues to light it up out there at Washington and goes on to make millions in the NFL.

UGA's offense isn't built necessarily for Fromm to have to throw the ball 30-40 times. Fromm isn't flashy, but he does put us in plays that give us the best chance at success. Takes care of the ball and is a good leader.  Not to say Eason wasn't or Fields wouldn't have been. Fields belongs in a spread offense like he is now. He did and by all accounts was going to struggle with the complexities of a Pro style offense.

The Dawgs offense looked awesome for the first three series, nearly all running plays for 7-8-9 yards a clip.  I think at that point they decided to "work on things".  They started misfiring a bit, got behind the sticks and kicked three FGs, which isn't the end of the world.  They had two nice long passes called back on a phantom holding penalty and a fumble at the end.  Of course, we're talking Vandy, but UGA did about what I expected.  They should be able to line up and blow lesser opponents off the ball and run effectively, whether they can do that with good defenses is yet to be seen, I suspect not.

They had some penalties on defense that hurt, some were dumb and some were just enthusiasm and later hits OB.  Being on the road in a hostile environment didn't happen.
