Yes we had better skill guys in '08, but we had the element of surprise as well. So I guess we're both right. Or are we both wrong, I can't decide....

This.

When you have Dwyer, Nesbitt, Allen, and Roddy in the backfield with Baybay out wide, it's pretty scary.

Also, let's not forget about '09 when we won the Championship. It's all about the playmakers.

We had the fastest WR in college football last year who had an OK season. That's on Tevin. You think he's gonna get BETTER this year without Stephen Hill? Put in the ---- playmakers.

Tevin will not beat UGA this year. Vad has a better chance and so does Justin Thomas. Our 2008 team (who had ZERO experience running our offense at the beginning of the season and beat UGA) says hi.

I guess we can just sit the OL on the bench since it's all about playmakers....

Yeah, the "playmakers" got more chances because it took some time for people to figure out blowing up the play at the start was more a key to success than playing "assignment football" and expecting to make plays one on one.

Nesbitt got blown up as well when a team had a good enough DL to pull it off. We do not have to blow people off the line; we do have to hold them off long enough for a play to develop.

Quite the contrary. I've been waiting, impatiently, for the passing threat that will finally show the country what this offense is capable of. It's been frustrating watching average to above average defenses completely disrespecting the passing threat and being right.

FWIW, Allen didn't play in 2008. Cox was often the other A-Back blocking for Roddy's big runs.

This. The numbers seem to support it as well. When we are passing efficiently (0 INTs), we average two touchdowns more per game than otherwise.
