Matt Stinchcomb: Kirby has said: ‘You know you’re evaluated in other positions. That’s how you practice, that’s how you perform.’ I think he means that … You want to have the largest impact on your team in the fewest number of moves … You’re talking about a guy now, in Jake Fromm, who has been your quarterback for [nearly] four games. You’re coming off a dominant performance. I don’t think anybody is even talking about this week, as far as who the starting quarterback is. It’s in many ways kind of a luxury to know that you’ve got a guy that does have starting experience, that, if things were to change on the other side with the kid who is currently starting now, maybe you make the change. The idea that you don’t lose your job to injury? You know I’ve been on the losing end of that assumption before, and I can’t say that the wrong decision was made. As a player [who is] playing well, you get injured, the other guy goes in there and the team continues to play well. You come back, and it’s like, ‘Look, right now it doesn’t make sense to make a change.’ I was a tackle. I blocked one, maybe two guys a play … This is a quarterback. Quarterbacks affect the trajectory of the entire offense. Right now the offense is playing well. I think it would be a tall task for Jacob Eason to unseat Jake Fromm just based on practice performances, unless the team becomes compromised by Fromm’s play in games. And of course, it’s a scenario that I don’t think they’re gonna calmly take my input on.
Dawg Nation: Any cautionary things you want to throw out there, or do you think the Bulldogs are the prohibited favorite to go to Atlanta [for the SEC Championship Game]? And can they challenge Alabama?
Matt Stinchcomb: At the start of the season, I said Georgia should win the SEC East. Based on what we’ve seen, I haven’t seen anything that would dissuade me from thinking that Georgia should win the division. I don’t know how good Mississippi State is. I don’t know how good LSU is. Right now, you get into this transitive property of who is good relative to how they beat another team that you’re not going to play. Georgia is not going to play LSU. So, how good is Mississippi State? Well, Mississippi State has Auburn this week; maybe we’ll find out. But, how good is Auburn? It gets pretty difficult pretty fast. Nobody was expecting Mississippi State was one of the best teams in the West division coming into the year. And yet, that’s been the biggest victory. Georgia dominated and maybe they dominated a really good team, but that would be the only reason to kind of say, ‘Ah, it’s not a full-grown conclusion, it never is. A lot can happen.’
