What Jake Fromm said about Georgia's passing game struggles against Texas A&M
The struggles on offense for Georgia have been a problem all season, and they don’t appear to be going away. First it was the young receivers. Then it was the offensive line. Against Texas A&M on Saturday, QB Jake Fromm misfired on several passes and experienced with a glove, and then took it off, as a rain storm caused problems early in the win.
“If I want to be as good as I want to be, I’ve got to hit those shots,” Fromm told reporters, according to this video from Dawg Nation. “It was early in the game. Still a little wet throwing the glove on. New for me. We’ve got to hit them and be able to capitalize on those.”
Fromm explained how wearing the glove came about.
“It’s something we worked on after the Kentucky game, to try find an answer,” Fromm said. “Honestly, I really think it’s a good idea when it’s raining, when it’s really wet. It was kind of that in between, it would drizzle and then it would dry up. It was some inconsistencies with the ball there and for me, I said I’m going to take it off and let’s go rip it.”
Fromm said he hopes the improved offense is something the team can switch on and start clicking.
“We’ll go back to the drawing board, go back to practice and hopefully get a lot better,” he said.
Fromm said winning on early downs is one specific area where the team can improve.
“I don’t think we did quite as good as we wanted to on third down tonight, that’s part of it, I really think we’re a good third down team,” Fromm said. “…Whether that’s communication, or getting the ball in space or taking shots, I don’t know what it is, but I think we need to do a better job of winning on first and second down.”
