Mr Pickle1 Posted November 16, 2010 Share Posted November 16, 2010 Greetings board. This is a topic which I wind up talking myself in circles about. UGA's defensive talent is an enigma-sometimes it is there, and sometimes it isn't.I've heard lots of people say things like- there are only 2-3 good players on the defense. I don't know that I agree with that...but then again, I don't know that I don't. We can all agree that the 3 below players are consistently good-Justin HoustonAkeem DentBrandon BoykinBut is that all? I see Demarcus Dobbs make plays. I see Abry Jones make plays. I see Chris Robinson make plays. I see Marcus Dowtin make plays. I see Sanders Commings make plays. I see various and sundry players make plays. But for whatever reason, they have trouble stringing a bunch of good plays together, AND we stink on 3rd down.I think a lot of the 3rd down and coverage problems are due to the absolutely horrid safety play we have. We trot out guys who are physical beasts, but really struggle understanding what to do and how to cover. ANd they have thru 2 seperate coaching staffs now.We do need more talent. This recruiting class is BIG...but more than that, we need the talent we currently have to start playing smarter and more consistently. And we need our talent to be healthy. I can't help but think T.J. Stripling might even be starting at OLB by now, and we'd have 2 monster rushers to help on 3rd down.Anyway, what do yall think? Rival fans opinions are certainly welcome and appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
