You can’t take away Greyson Lambert’s 0-for-7 start against Vanderbilt. But suffice it to say, his work beyond that stretch of two quarters and change has been extraordinary.
Lambert went 11-of-14 to finish the game against the Commodores. Together with his record-setting 24-of-25 effort against South Carolina, that means Lambert has completed 35 of his last 39 passes, or 89.7 percent. And if you add in the 8-for-12 performance he had in the Bulldogs’ opener against Louisiana-Monroe, Lambert is passing at an .843 rate outside that bad stretch against Vanderbilt.
About that, there were a lot of “told you so” comments coming from Lambert’s teammates in the postgame locker room late Saturday night.
“He was just being Greyson Lambert,” senior outside linebacker Jordan Jenkins said. “He played the way he practices. He didn’t let anything affect his game. He just did what he does and made plays on the fly.”
Said tight end Jay Rome: “It wasn’t unexpected at all. Not from me. I feel like he can come out there and have similar games every night. He’s an outstanding quarterback. The game plan was run to perfection. Receivers were getting open, the offensive line was giving him a good pocket and time to release the ball. When he has time, he’s going to stick the ball on us every time.”
