Nick Chubb has the ability to make opposing defenses look silly, but can he lead the Bulldogs to an SEC East title? Mandatory Credit: Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports
Please, stop me if you have heard this before. I’m predicting Georgia to win the SEC East.
Dawn of the Dawg
Nick Chubb is a baller. Quarterback issues are easier to settle when you have a guy in the backfield that ran for 14 touchdowns and over 1,500 yards. Keep in mind, Chubb only had 31 carries through his first 5 games. The offensive line only has to replace it’s center. I have no doubt that Greyson Lambert will do a good job replacing Aaron Murray. It is a very rare occurrence for Coach Richt to not have a solid quarterback waiting in the wings, and the only real question mark for Georgia’s offense is a thin wide receiver core. If Malcolm Mitchell can stay healthy, that should keep defenses from stacking 8-man boxes, and this offense could be a thing of beauty.
247sports.com had Trent Thompson rated as the number 1 overall prospect, and his presence on the defensive line could work wonders. Georgia will have to replace some key positions in the secondary, but returning Leonard Floyd and Jordan Jenkins gives the Georgia defense more than just stability at it’s linebacker core.
Georgia has always had the talent to be a top 10 offense, and this year is set up to be no different. If Georgia’s defense can live up to expectations and carry the team for the one or two games that their offense is slightly off, Georgia is not just an SEC East contender. If that holds true, Georgia will be playing to be the overall SEC Champion and a national title contender. Again, just stop me if you’ve heard this before….
