I have high expectations for the Dawgs, but I am also reasonable. This year I predicted that Georgia would end up with an 8-4 record, which would be disappointing. Unfortunately, it is going to be tough for the Bulldogs to make it to 8-4, which is a damn good reason to start Murray (or whichever QB is anointed the crown of QB of the future). Mark Bradley of the ajc makes a case for at least getting Murray some playing time.
Clincher: Even as it was struggling in 2006, Georgia had already committed to going with true freshman Matthew Stafford. He suffered some reversals — in the loss at Kentucky, he threw interceptions from the Georgia 2-yard-line and the Kentucky 1 on consecutive series — but he learned.
Conclusion: I wouldn’t start Murray ahead of Joe Cox, but I’d bump him above Gray and give him some snaps. Murray is the future. With one more loss, the future officially begins.
As I have said before, nothing against Cox, but there is a lot that is clearly not working and the Bulldogs need to make sure someone is ready for 2010.
