Questions persist around Georgia’s offense about whether the Bulldogs will improve each week. This time, the team is coming off an unexpected bye week, which gave Stetson Bennett additional time to heal a shoulder injury. But there is also increasing optimism that JT Daniels may play this week for the first time all season.

On the SEC coaches media teleconference, coach Kirby Smart was asked if Daniels offer more explosiveness to the offense.

“It happens by execution, picking up blitz, making plays downfield, having explosive runs… explosive plays because of lack of execution by the other team or execution of your team,” Smart said.

Smart was also asked about the progression of the offense overall.

“Every week that you run a concept or a play, you get better at it… every game we have run a concept, we try to get better at it… who we play also has an effect on that… we are trying to execute at a high level regardless of who we play,” Smart said.

As he does consistently in media settings, Smart wouldn’t tip his hand about the quarterback direction.

“JT has done some nice things, just as Stetson and D’Wan (Mathis) have done,” he said.
