A.J. Green is Scary Good

I'm working on gathering quotes for stories for our college football preview tab, which has me absurdly busy. One of the stories I'm working on, however, is about A.J. Green and the impact he hopes to make this season as Georgia's top returning playmaker.

A.J. isn't exactly the best quote, so I made sure to talk to a few other folks about him, too, and this bit of feedback from Joe Cox should give some SEC cornerbacks nightmares...

"Last year, he was just a freshman and there were a lot of times he didn't know what to do. You watch on film, there are a lot of plays where you can tell he was kind of lost. Last year, he was one of the guys Matthew (Stafford) would need to make sure he knew what to do. This year, he knows what to do. He's helping out younger guys. You can tell he just has so much more confidence in everything – how he wants to run a certain route, what he's supposed to do on a certain play – and it shows."

First off, he did that last year while needing instructions before each play? Yikes.

Secondly, what does that mean for this season?

Get him the ball. That's what it means.

It will be interesting how opposing DCs load up on him and how Bobo finds a way to get him the ball.
All of the other WRs should be licking their chops...

I think it will be interesting to see how the other receivers step up and become a threat so that some of the double teams are taken off of him.

Another way to do that will be to establish a STRONG running game and make the safeties creep up to try and stop the dawgrush.

if either of those things happen, watch out.
