Good post.We caould learn from you.+1
I think you might be a little too dramatic about things.
I don't mide criticism but I think people might want to take a more realistic approach to how they look at our team. UGA is a good football team and they were able to establish the run yesterday. It really hurt our pass rush as the game went on. We had some missed assignments but we rank 6th nationally in pass defense. Murray had 265 yards passing with 1 TD and 1 INT. A significant amount of the yards came on the final drive when we were in prevent. The guy is currently 2nd in the nation is passing efficiency.
I didn't think it was our best defensive performance but I thought the secondary held up alright. I don't recall Lester playing poorly but I would have to watch film to know for sure. I'm almost certain the TE touchdown was on Perry. We will be alright in the BCS title game.
i personally think we are very young and this is a complicated system that most of these high schoolers have no clue whats going on for a while ..... i have been very concerned about Perry tho this year , prob just me but he seems to be behind whom ever he covers ..... all i really think about is wait til next year with all these young guys getting experience , Geno looks like star in the making at cb... HaHa , Geno , Ragland ,Collins , ahh the future looks good and when we win the NC this year our coaches deserve a huge pat on the back for coaching the heck out of this D that lost so much experience and the players for stepping up to such a hard system .
That was one of the points to my original post.......Lester is a 5th yr Sr......not a 1st yr starter. Pursuit angles and tackling are not related to the complexity of the defense......those things are taught / learned day 1 of organized football........just surprising to see him still making the same mistakes at this point.
Dont get down on the kid , he has helped win games 4 us,, remember that,,but,,lets face it some players are better than others
he and vinnie give it there all, some players are just not pro material,but lets keep up there hopes,,we have one game left..rtr
Couple of facts. We gave up only 21 points on defense. The other was a blocked punt. Until the last drive of the game when we went to a prevent defense Murray was completing less than 50% of his passes for 183 yards.

I said I was being nit-picky.......but giving up ONLY 21 points due to poor angles, poor tackling, and blown assignments isn't exactly OK by UA standards. We won the game .....great ..... I'm glad......but I want our defense to be dominant and we can't be dominant with these type mistakes out of 5th yr players.
I don't think defense played bad at all yesterday. They kept us in the game in the first half. We lost 2 TOs, screwed up a fake punt, allowed them to convert a fake punt and we were still winning 10-7. They had 2 good drives in the 2nd half. UGA is a really good offensive team with a veteran QB and a good running game. Our defense definitely played better than I think you give them credit for. I think the standards needs to be reigned in a bit. Good offenses are going to make some plays...the defense played pretty well last night.
No problem ..... we'll have to agree to disagree on our defensive performance last night. We gave the WAY too many plays / gains because of poor fundamentals and physicality at the point of attack. Our defense played well enough to win the game.....and that's all that really counts. I just want them to be dominant....not just, good enough. RTR.
