One, the run blocking has to be where we're failing. Our run game has been painfully bad really all season, but I just can't believe that Richard Samuel and Caleb King are that bad that they're gonna get under 10 yards together for an entire half. I think last week we had 0 rushing yards at halftime. That's ridiculous. I will say that seeing WaShaun come in and play well was a good thing, but I think our run blocking is where we're lacking. Our guys are getting hit in the backfield way too much. It is weird though because our pass blocking has been pretty darn good all year.
And second, special teams are the weakest part of our team. Everybody talking about Willie Martinez and Bobo, but they have their days. Special teams ALWAYS sucks. My Michigan-fan friend came with me to his first game in Athens today, and I asked him if it was weird that we NEVER return punts. Never! I call Logan Gray "Mr. Fair Catch", but really it's anybody back there. What are we doing wrong? Are we not blocking the guys coming downfield or what? It just blows my mind that we don't return punts, we don't make the first man miss on kickoffs, and then the BLEEPING awful play at the end of the game that lost it. Bobo and Martinez were okay-to-good today, special teams SUCKED, period.
For the hell of it, #3, AJ Green is the man. He won the game for us today and we fell on our butts.
