ATHENS – Georgia famously doesn’t know who its starting quarterback will be. Just as famously, it doesn’t know whether its top two tailbacks will be healthy enough to start the season. So that brings us to the other offensive skill position, which is a model of stability and experience.
Nah, just kidding. The receivers are a huge area of unknown, too.
Oh, there’s plenty of optimism. While last year’s No. 1 receiver is now in the NFL, there’s a clear replacement as the No. 2 guy. And there are a few promising options to fill in behind him, as we saw in the spring.
Plus, you’ve got perhaps the deepest and most talented group of tight ends in all of college football.
But, as Steve Spurrier said, this is talkin’ season. It’s comin’ time for doin’ season.
When it comes to the receivers and tight ends, the big question remains whether Georgia has adequate enough quarterback play and play-calling. If the answer to both is yes, the Bulldogs probably have enough talent to make and extend plays in the passing game.
We’ve previewed and offered up a prediction on quarterbacks.
