The Georgia Bulldogs have lost Jacob Eason for at least their game with Notre Dame, and they have put Jake Fromm in at quarterback. Fromm looked pretty good the moment he went into the game, but he is not the answer in Georgia yet. There are some questions that need to be answered about this UGA offense before we all go in on Fromm or Eason. The kids on this team deserve to have the best player in at quarterback, but they do not know who that is yet.

The Georgia offense is imperfect

The offense is based on the idea that someone will come in and save it when it is needed. This whole team seems to be built upon the idea that Jacob Eason can do it all.

That is not only short-sighted, but it is dangerous. Now he is hurt and Jake Fromm looked really good. He will get a whole game against Notre Dame, and what will they do if he looks good in that game?

Do not give Fromm the job yet

Georgia could see anything from Fromm on Saturday and let him keep the job or take away the job at any time. They have every right to do that, and there is not a person out here who knows what they are thinking. They could give the job back to Eason because they think he gives them the best chance to win, or they could let Fromm keep the job because he won it while Eason was injured. That creates a whole layer of problems, but it may be the best thing for the team.

Eason would transfer

Now you are in a situation where Eason has to transfer if he loses this job to Fromm. Kirby Smart has to answer a thousand questions about why that kid was not their savior, and they will also start asking if Eason should go to Miami to play with Mark Richt who recruited him in the first place.

However, taking on Fromm could make the Bulldogs better. We do not know yet, but the coaching staff must know that they have a thousand problems on their hands if they give up on Jacob Eason.

Why does it matter?

It matters because Georgia is becoming much like Tennessee in that they are going to tease us with potential only to stab us in the heart.

We all thought that they could do a lot in the SEC Est, and plenty of people picked them to win the division. That is a bold proclamation for a team that is under a fairly new head coach who has an unproven quarterback and growing pains. It would have been smarter to pick Florida, but they just lost badly to Michigan. The whole of the SEC is shifting on Georgia right now because they have all the potential in the world even though they have not yet lived up to it in any way.
