Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones has had a monster year for the Bulldogs, and he is a very big reason this defense is ranked in the top five in nearly every defensive category in the SEC. They are good, but are they as good as LSU’s?
Jones seems to think so. He spoke to the media Monday and had this to say about the Tigers:
“I mean, everybody praises LSU defense, but I think — I know we’ve got a pretty good defense. We’re not cocky at all. We’re just going to play. We do our job and get out on the field. We like having fun. We love playing football. We’re aggressive. We play just as well as them.
“A lot of people don’t give us credit of how they play and how we play. I think we play two different styles. I think our defense is just as good as theirs if not better.“
Jones is leading the SEC in sacks (13.5) and tackles for loss (19.5). He’s having a monster year, and we’ll all get to see if Georgia can do the unthinkable this Saturday in Atlanta.
