    sow.

    BUT, our offense is going to keep their offense off the field.
    Just like last year, our OL will beat their DL and our DL will beat their OL. Game over.

    Theirs, of course. They have more experience and talent at receiver and tight end (Benjamin, Greene, O'Leary), they have a great group of backs who also have some experience (Freeman, Wilder), they return four starters on the offensive line, Winston looks great, and most importantly every single player on that offensive side of the ball was recruited for what Fisher wants to run, most of them from the loaded 2011 class that took advantage of Meyer's final season and our coaching transition.

    Fortunately, though, I like our defense against their offense better than their defense against our offense.

    QB is the most important position in the game. Right now, I'd say Bridgewater, Tajh Boyd and Winston would be my 1, 2 and 3 choices at the position and that's after watching just 1 game. I'd take any of those offenses over ours. In fact, I'd take any top 15 team's offense over ours with the possible exception of Ohio State and Notre Dame.

    Sure defense wins titles but having a great QB sure doesn't hurt.

    I think Jimbo will always have the better offense overall but I will take Muschamp and his defense.

    I just hope our offense one day kind of catches up to the level of our defense.

    Well there's no question transitioning from a flighty, finesse, shotgun spread option attack to a true smash mouth, ball-control offense is about 4 years tougher than switching defensive coordinators and adding the BUCK position while playing in the SEC.

    We could field a pretty darned fine offense one day and still not be at the level of our defense... all the way to a NC.

    How many points per game do you expect from them?

    Yeah Florida State's offense and QB are definitely better so far.

    Out of all the college QBs you would take Winston 3rd? Not Johnny Manziel (we're talking on field only) or Braxton Miller? That's a stunning lack of perspective based on a single game against Pitt.

    I expect enough. Two losses last year too much for you? Two more this year and you're ready to change coaches?

    he doesn't like Muschamp, would make him so happy if Muschamp was fired. The only thing that would make it better is if we hired Kirby Smart

    Our strategy is to play defense. In order to play great defense the offense should only throw safe, flat routes and run the ball 75% of the time, even if the defense stacks 9 in the box.

    Winston, Bridgewater, and Boyd are not fit for our offense. The last thing you want to do is score quickly and put your defense back on the field. If your offense scores 40+, your defense might get tired. Any scoring drive under 10 plays is detrimental to the win with defense strategy.

    I guess nobody cares to answer the question.
    Are 3 losses in-a-row to Georgia too little for you?
    Who said I was ready to change coaches already?

    Why do teams like Alabama NOT have a problem with scoring early and often.
    Could it be depth, or confidence, or coaching, or all of the above?

    Another loss to Georgia and another year missing ATL, yes, Muschamp should at least be on the hot seat.

    I was being sarcastic with my response, but you're right. A lot of folks want to compare what Muschamp is doing with our offense to how Alabama is operating, and it cannot be farther from the truth. Alabama does not just run head first into stacked boxes come hell or high water like we do. Alabama does not only throw passes to the outside and in the flats like we do. We are not Alabama and this is not Brent Pease's offense.

    If given a choice--I prefer WINS because of the defense. I really don't give a flying damn how many points it takes from Offense--Defense--or Special Teams. I'll take a win any day over a point pissing contest.:wink:
