He needs to stay out of the public and the coaches should intervene. This is going to be one of the problems with NIL. I'm sure his sponsors want his face out there but this is a time when he needs to lay low until his gets better.

As was noted, clichés are the last thing we need to be hearing from DJ. Dabo has more than enough to cover the entire team.

Since even DJ knows he still has a lot to learn, then...

Sep 24, 2021, 9:43 AM

... why not rotate Taisun and DJ during the game. This is Taisun's 3rd year in the system and he appears to be more proficient than DJ right now, so let him play!

Sure, DJ will get there, but how long will that take. What if Taisun is playing better than DJ ... is that what everyone is trying to avoid?

It worked with Trevor and Kelly Bryant and then you evaluate where they are after each game.

DJ himself said, "I'm not Trevor, I'm DJ." Exactly. It might take him a little longer to become more comfortable and proficient as a starter, and that's fine.

It would put the opposing defenses off balance ... at least a little ... if we have two quarterbacks that they have to worry about.

Makes sense to do something different now, because doing the "same old, same old" doesn't seem to be working right now.

This has been my point from the start. Add a little urgency and hunger to the situation. Not just TP, throw in more Taylor. The kid is electric and a big play waiting to happen. He has no pressure on his job. If/when that happens, effort increases.

But here are my thoughts:
Next man up. If DJ is making too many mistakes, sit him for a series and try a new QB - perhaps one with different style, like Will Taylor.
Don't wait til half time (or after the game) to make adjustments. That's on the coaches. Surely we have different plays for different defenses. Surely we have practiced against defense designed to stop the pass - not original concept.

Just because it’s a cliche doesn’t make it untrue. It IS: next man up. If he worked for me, he’d have been watching someone else do the job since game one. Football is a business. He’s a grown man in a grown world. Time he felt some hunger and pressure for his job. Not just the perception.

Ba the 105th rated QB in college football?! Did you REALLY just ask that?! Try understanding the psychology of coaching a little. Is Chase Brice better than DJ? Right now he is! If this was the NFL, how long would it take to try a new guy? I never said to stay with him. But, he might come in and be the next star. That’s the beauty of football. Wally Pipp gets hurt and Lou Gehrig gets the job. Pipp was better on paper. Bledsoe was better than Brady on paper. How’s that work out?!

Rome was built over 1229 years so it's a good idea to avoid cliche's-especially on here at Tigernet. We all know that the Defense was dropping 8..however there is a cushion in front of the 8. What happened to the TE and quick slants. With 3 down linemen-even if a DE peels off, how hard is it to get leverage? In general, the For whatever reason, historically the TE has been not much more than another blocker. We always wonder if whoever the guy is, if they have hands. This is the antithesis of what happened to us back in DF days when we were trying to run on some teams but could not pass. BC put 8 men in the box 1 year, we did not throw and we got beat. The TE does what was done back in the 80's. This is more observation. No bashing intended but rather a discussion of tactics.

The situation is infinitely more complex than most of us understand, including myself. I freely admit I don't have the knowledge to be coaching a team nor would I want to-not even for coaching salaries(I think they earn every dime). We don't need to be trashing players and berating coaches as many of us
remember the painful years(decades) of the past. I personally very thankful for our coaches as I think we all are. It's just when you watch a chess match-sometimes you want to understand a move. It makes it easier to watch the match if you know somewhat what the strategy is.

I'll be perfectly honest, I've been worried about our offensive scheme and playcalling well before the LSU game. The lack of creativity and evolution offensively, coupled with relying purely on mechanics in development rather than a combination of feel/mechanics generates uptight results. Dj needs to relax and be a gunslinger & throw some deep 50/50 balls, our defense has his back. Wait....... I TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT ROME....I FEEL MUCH BETTER NOW, WHEW?? .....BUT ON THE OTHER HAND....BOBERRY BISCUITS WERE BUILT IN A COUPLE HOURS AND THEY ARE MAGNIFICENT. back to square 1. SIMPLIFY THINGS TONY!! 2 COMPLIMENTARY SAME SIDE READS WITH A BACKSIDE FADE & PLAYACTION SPRINKLED IN FOR STARTERS. The game is moving really fast for DJ currently and simple success will slow things down for anticipated crossing routes etc. The Fade is an easy fit for qb confidence and tall wr's. Its an easy throw & catch that doubles as a punt worse case scenario.

No it wasn’t, but we can sure flush our season in a day. And that may fly if this was his first game. Overthrews, rifling a swing pass like it’s 60 yards downfield and holding the ball too long. It’s a good thing we have a good defense, or we would look like FSU right now. Our offense doesn’t move if the QB don’t run.

Some QBs take time to develop as starters. DJ has proven his potential, but he is obviously developing as a starter. We also have lots of new players and players playing in new positions. The OL has not helped much starting at UGA, and that's when the mental issues started.

Get off kid's back for using this phrase. We ARE building.
