I just have one question…

November 2, 2008

After the carnage from yesterday, I just have one question (and a follow-up or two).

Our season is and always will be left unfulfilled. No goals accomplished. None. Zilch.

So where does this leave Stafford and Knowshon in terms of leaving for the NFL? Should they stay to finish business next year or leave for the early money? Or do you want them back (I know my roommates would love to see Stafford take his gunslinging arm to The Show tomorrow if he could)?

For those (three) of you who read…feel free to comment.

    I’ve said all along Joe Cox was a better QB than Stafford. Everyone forgets how he saved us against Colorado. In addition, look who scored the only TD in the GA vs FL game 2008. Sure, look at the yardage Stafford has thrown, but the disappointment and cost of the losses has been far greater.

    Yes, let him go to the NFL for a short lived career!

    ET,

    I’m not sold on either going pro at this time. I will say I can see Knowhon going pro early, but not Stafford.

    However, I also will not be surprised if either stays.

    runnig backs dont stay there a health concerns and knowshon has no insurance on any part of his body….plus there is the rookie salary cap that will be in place after this yrs draft…neither will stay imo and uga will NOT be better for it. joe cox got beat because richts sytstem uses qbs with a big arm…he uses the run to set up deep passes of the play action

    I agree with you guys, squarebush and benjamin. There’s a reason — probably a few — that Stafford beat out Cox to begin with, and a lot of that has to do with that arm of his. We’ve lived and died by it over the past 2-3 seasons. Cox couldn’t make a huge chunk of the throws that Stafford has made, but he also wouldn’t force as many throws (because he really can’t as much). It’s a double-edged sword.

    I’d personally like to see them both come back next year as the unabashed leaders of the team, but I don’t think Knowshon will be back for the reasons you mention, Benjamin.

    Stafford does things with David Greene could only dream about doing.

    He’s got a cannon of an arm, rarely misses, and has been playing behind a patchwork offensive line his entire career. Without Stacey Searls out there coaching we’d be completely lost.

    The game Stafford has played poorly in, we’ve been unable to give him more than a 3 step drop. In that time, he’s got to make a coverage read, anticipate the blitz, ensure his receiver is running the right throw, and put the ball spot on.

    If Stafford stay, which I anticipate him to do, he’ll have a season for the ages next year. We’ll finally have a legitimate line, outstanding receivers, and an emphasis on the passing game to let him shine.

    Cox holds Stafford’s jock-strap for a reason, after Stafford, we’ll have either Logan or Murray coming in to take over.

    Knowshon on the other hand is as good as gone. He’s NFL ready right now and he’s always one hit from ending his career. He’ll have around 20 million guaranteed waiting for him, and playing another year will not get him anymore money.

    If you want to talk about changes… talk about Willie Martinez… 128 points given up in our three biggest games? With OUR defense returning 9 starters! are you kidding me!
