The Receiving Game is the Dawgs’ Achilles’ Heel

Though his completion percentage was below 50% (15-32, 46.9%), I didn’t feel that QB Greyson Lambert was the problem with the UGA offense on Saturday. Lambert threw for 279 yards and 2 touchdowns, and should have had more.

There were at least three dropped passes I saw from the UGA receiving corps in this game, including a 40+ yard certain TD pass to WR Reggie Davis. Lambert can throw the deep pretty well for us and wasn’t all that far away from having a 4 TD game for the Georgia Bulldogs.

Though Reggie Davis emerged in Week 6 as Lambert’s second receiving option, Greyson is not able to throw the football to his tight ends at all. I don’t think Jeb Blazevich had a catch. The only memorable play I saw from the TE corps was a shifty maneuver by Senior TE Jay Rome to move the chains.

Lambert may have missed on a few passes, but may have done a better job in the pocket than Joshua Dobbs did for Tennessee. Greyson wasn’t the problem in this game for the Dawgs offensively. It was the poorly called running game of Brian Schottenheimer and the butterfingers of the wideouts sans Malcolm Mitchell that unraveled the Dawgs in this one.
