Georgia Bulldogs Will Lean on Running Game Early

The Georgia Bulldogs leaned primarily on their running game in their 30-6 opening week win. Not giving Jake Fromm many chances saving his arm for when they will need it the most.

The Georgia Bulldogs first three games of the season are unsurprisingly cupcake teams. Teams that won’t challenge the Dawgs and allow them simply to run the ball and the clock out and come away with the win.

Jake Fromm often gets the label of “game manager” this is somewhat true despite his passing ability. Georgia is playing their cards closely in game one and should continue to do the same the next two weeks.

We are unlikely to see Fromm drop back and pass much until Georgia faces Notre Dame. Georgia is not going to run their full offense until then. Why should they? With three easy wins, they have no motivation to advertise what they can or cannot do on offense in 2019.

What we do know for sure is that Fromm is a gifted quarterback who is money when the chips are on the table. He gives Georgia their best chance to win a championship and has the experience of having been in playoff games.

The one question mark for Georgia is who will emerge as their primary receiver? With last year’s top targets all now playing at the next level, Georgia must find a way to develop new talent.

Any part of their passing attack they use the next two weeks should be vanilla and used in the interest of finding out what they have in their current receivers. The running game is a known commodity and will be the priority for opposing defenses.

Something Georgia is well aware of and will no doubt spend time developing a passing attack that could finally push Georgia past Alabama for a shot at a National Championship.
