Aaron Murray says it's time to end the questions about Georgia's starting QB
Aaron Murray has once again weighed in on the Georgia quarterback discussion one day after Kirby Smart said he wouldn’t reveal if JT Daniels is practicing with the starters ahead of the Michigan College Football Playoff semifinal game.
It’s Stetson Bennett’s job, end of story, according to Murray, he said on Sirius XM College.
“I would be very shocked if Stetson’s not the quarterback, extremely shocked,” Murray said. “I think the question needs to stop being asked because it’s not going to change. I know it’s a topic and I know it has to be asked because it’s been a topic this whole offseason and for the majority of the year for Georgia.”
Murray added that there were other issues that caused Georgia to lose the SEC Championship than Bennett. He cited the defensive line, cornerbacks and average receiver play as those issues.
“There are other issues that need to be corrected before you even get to who should be the starting quarterback,” Murray said.
Murray admitted that if Bennett throws 2 interceptions in the first half against Michigan, a change would be warranted, but he also said that teammates need to be better around Bennett. Murray also said that Daniels is not on the level of Joe Burrow or Bryce Young.
“I understand it has to be asked, but it’s not going to change.”
