DawgNation has four staffers who cover Georgia football from every angle: Beat, live streams, photos, podcasts, recruiting, etc. The “Cover 4” concept is: 1) Present a topic; 2) Offer a reasoned response; 3) Share a brisk statement on that opinion. 4) Pepper the page with photos for the big picture. For this edition, we discuss how the COVID-19 shutdown will affect the progression of Todd Monken’s new offense in Athens.
DawgNation continues with the “Cover 4” concept. The focus is always a timely look with each of our guys manning the secondary on a pertinent topic.
Todd Monken and the Georgia offense had a very productive spring practice planned. Poof. That’s all gone. The installs and position specifics are having to happen with Zoom sessions now and mental reps.
Will that ultimately affect what Georgia’s 2020 offense was set to be this fall? Will it just super-size the efficiency and importance of the on-field work once they are cleared to hit the field. What is something we can already point to aside from conjecture and generalities?
We asked our Cover 4 panel to share their thoughts on that topic thread.
The quick in-and-out game remains. The Cover 4 is designed to come out as quick as everyone is trying to maintain their social distancing these days.
What specific ways do you see the COVID-19 slowdown affecting the potential of the new Todd Monken offense?
Brandon Adams: It will require Monken to be a teacher
