Chip on Auburn’s Pass Rushers
One thing which probably won’t change from the Nov. 11 meeting is Georgia’s offensive line and its inability to stop the big, strong Tigers up front. The only way to really give quarterback Jake Fromm that extra second he needs and to allow Nick Chubb and Sony Michele to have a moment to see a running lane is to chip on the pass rushers.
Auburn was on the other side of the line quicker than a jackrabbit on a date against the Bulldogs (and Alabama last week), and the offense had not time to find a rhythm.
Two-tight end sets, and empty backfields will have to become a normal part of things for at least part of the game, allowing tight ends and guards to place an extra shot on the Auburn pass rushers and human tractors.
Just a momentary displacement in movement or a pause in a speed rush can allow the offensive skill players that additional tick-tock to get free and make decisions.
