Georgia Football: The Last Hangover


Bad news: this is our last offseason Hangover of 2014. We’ve had fun, we’ve made fun of things, we’ve had guests, we’ve made fun of those guests. Bottom line, we had a good run, but all good things must come to an end.

Good news: OH MY GOD FOOTBALL IS BACK.

Ahem.

Join us below as we sign off for the Hangover for the last time this year, have a little extra fun, and get ready for football Saturdays to start bringing in the REAL hangovers.

Go Dawgs.

Hard Knocks with the Atlanta Falcons: Hustle Gang


Watching Hard Knocks cover YOUR team is a strange experience. Due to the schedule, you are aware of how the preseason game goes as you watch. Spoilers: the Falcons get their heads kicked in against Houston. And the knowledge of the #BEATEMDOWN to ensue informed every second of the programming and MAY have colored my experience with this week’s episode. Actually, glancing down at the likes and dislikes, I can confirm that the knowledge that JJ Watt and company were going to abuse the Falcons (even though JJ didn’t play a down in the game!) greatly impacted my attitude. Well, you don’t come here for impartiality, you come for the recap, so let’s get to it!

LIKES

- Hearing Julio talk, he BLEEDS Alabama. And it is in the good section because it needs to be.

- Someone lost a LOT of money years ago learning the money drop game. I imagine they learn that the same way my dad taught me dominoes: over time and very expensive.

- “I don’t know, I f’d up.” Sometimes, honesty is the best policy.

- I like that my quarterback is bad at telling jokes. As long as he remains good at quarterbacking, I don’t need him to display Peyton Manning level comedic timing. Seriously, go watch Peyton’s SNL. He’s annoyingly talented with the jokes.

- Harry Douglas can bowl. WRs can secret handshake.

- Bryan Cox is a national treasure and he should be forced to be the DL coach for whoever does Hard Knocks every year from now on.

DISLIKES

- ACL surgery to open the show in case you were eating.

- Stop reminding me about Stephen Jackson’s first injury of many this year.

- It absolutely kills me that Kroy Bierman is a key member of this defense, once again, GTFOMT.

- Watching quarterback drills, Matt Ryan can’t get hurt.

- ANY PLAYER EVEN TANGENTIALLY RELATED TO UKULELE USE, GTFOMT.

- I’d be terrified if my kid had to try to block JJ Watt too, Bruce Matthews was there in case any serious medical decisions had to be made on the field. Better safe than sorry.

- Knowing that the Falcons get their asses kicked makes the coaches look smarter than they are. That’s just good editing. Coaches are ALWAYS this negative in film, it’s not just super prescient.

- Sam Baker’s injury resulted directly in me taking out 4 straight jokes about him. Any more questions about Clowney’s motor?

- Watching Ryan Fitzpatrick do well makes me physically ill. I’ll always hate Harvard.

- “C’mon TJ, do your thing baby!” Pick six. Well, he did his thing, I guess. And then he threw another, cause WHY THE HELL NOT? Matt. Ryan. Cannot. Get. Hurt.

Well. That was NOT fun. One the one hand, things can’t get worse. On the other hand, that’s what people say before things invariably get worse. The only thing that could raise my spirits? A little food for my soul.

Georgia Football: Aaron Murray Watch – Week 2


When last we checked in on our hero, he was taking a knee as Kansas City salted away a preseason win over Cincinnati, but the second week of preseason play saw all of us get a better look at the former Dawg. Because I love you all, I DVR’d Kansas City – Carolina from this past Sunday, and here’s what we saw.

PLAYING TIME: Murray took over the offense for the second series of the third quarter, and didn’t look back. Alex Smith and Chase Daniels are pretty much known commodities in KC these days, so seeing Murray take all the snaps and Tyler Bray take none was a welcome change of pace from last week.

THE NUMBERS: Aaron (first name basis, get like me) finished 5/9 for 81 yards with 1 touchdown and 1 interception. Beyond that, he also had a HUGE 51 yard pass negated by a holding penalty on the last KC drive of the game. All this resulted in a better than bad passer rating of 83.3.

THE EYEBALL TEST: The single pick thrown was a little late on a crossing pattern, but the touchdown was vintage Murray, showing great comfort in the pocket, and perfect placement on the ball. Most importantly, he looked fully comfortable and recovered from the ACL tear that ended his season early for the Dawgs last year.

Moving forward, I think all of this bodes well for his NFL future. The Chiefs will most certainly not carry 4 quarterbacks, but I like Aaron’s chances to be on the roster as the quarterback of the future in Kansas City with either Bray or Daniels slotted as the back up QB.

Georgia Football: Former Dawg Poised for Unlikely NFL Record


Blair Walsh had a hot and cold career as a kicker at Georgia.

  • 2008: 14/23 FG, 50/50 XP – WARM
  • 2009: 20/22 FG, 42/42 XP – SUPER HOT
  • 2010: 20/23 FG, 46/47 XP – HOT
  • 2011: 21/35 FG, 46/46 XP – COLD

 

He’s been A1 since Day 1 (as the kids say) since arriving in the NFL as a sixth round pick in 2012.

  • 2012: 35/38 FG, 36/36 XP
  • 2013: 26/30 FG, 43/44 XP

 

None of his seven misses have come from inside 30 yards.  Six have come from beyond 40 yards.

So, the guy who once missed 14 field goals in 14 games in 2011 is now a star in the NFL.  And if this video shows anything, it’s that Walsh could shatter the NFL record for longest field goal (64 yards).

You do you, Blair Walsh.  You. Do. You.

 

That’s all I got/
