Are We Talking Kleenex Soft or Tempur Pedic Soft?


Shawn Williams, among Georgia's more outspoken defenders, was just as satisfied with the unit's performance against lowly Kentucky as the vast majority of Georgia fans last Saturday.

If you haven't heard, David Ching of Dawg Nation puts it better than I could ever hope to in this (free) article: http://insider.espn.go.com/blog/colleges/georgia/post/_/id/12464/safety-williams-georgia-defense-soft

There's no argument that the 2012 defense has been the biggest disappointment so far with this extremely talented team. We all knew special teams would be iffy. But the question is why is the D, ranked fifth-best in the country at the end of last season, among the bottom feeders in the SEC this season?

Williams' softness was cloud-like against South Carolina, getting torched by the Gamecocks' mediocre receiving corps on two big pass plays, but these kinds of comments were not entirely out of place. However, I do think he should have used a little more tact in suggesting that certain players play over others. I love Amarlo Herrera, too, but is Williams throwing Michael Gilliard and/or Christian Robinson under the bus with these comments?


What do y'all think? How soft is Georgia's defense? What can be done to fix it? Will the team respond to Williams' rallying cry like they did to Sheldon Richardson's "old man football" barb?


We can only hope. If the Dawgs want to beat Florida, the D has to step up.
