After latest Alabama loss, Aaron Murray identifies glaring weakness for Georgia offense
Perhaps it was the dropped passes, or misfiring by QB Stetson Bennett IV, but former Georgia QB Aaron Murray identified a missing piece for the Georgia offense following its latest loss to Alabama.
Murray tweeted that, “Until UGA can get some dudes at WR, this offense will continue to be average.”
Bennett was 18-for-40 passing for 269 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions. Seven receivers were targeted 35 times, and they came up with just 18 completions from a combination of wayward throws from Bennett and dropped passes by receivers. Jermaine Burton had a particularly high rate of targets versus catches, with 11 targets to just four catches. Kearis Jackson had seven targets and came up with just two catches.
George Pickens had the most catches with five, and RB James Cook led the Bulldogs in receiving yards with 101 on the strength of an 82-yard TD.
Georgia is off this week, and returns to action Oct. 31 at Kentucky after several games were shifted because of multiple postponements around the SEC.
