DANIELSON: When Georgia has quarterback play, Mark Richt’s team has a chance to compete against anybody. He has his defense together and with a quarterback, he has a chance to win. We don’t know how real Georgia is. They had a terrible slump in the middle of the season when even their own players called the team out. That seemed to ignite them. They played a very good defensive football game against Florida, but their quarterback had a really tough first half and he almost tossed a game away that they should have won pretty easily. But since then, when the rest of the country was playing really tough football games, Georgia played Old Miss, Auburn, Georgia Southern and Georgia Tech. They haven’t been tested. So, they’re basically coming from the October 27 game into the Championship game, and we don’t know if they’ve gotten any better or where they stand. We know they have great potential and they are loaded athletically on defense.
DANIELSON: Alabama never was unbeatable. They’ve proven that. But you better be good enough to take advantage of what they give you. Saban makes you play NFL-style football against them. Your quarterback has to complete passes. When you do it like Zach Mettenberger or Johnny Manziel did, they’re vulnerable. But if you don’t have a quarterback that can do it, then forget it. You have no chance.
(KEY TO THE GAME)
DANIELSON: Georgia needs to find a way to get Jarvis Jones to impact the game without matching him up against the strength of Alabama, which is their two tackles. Of course Jones will make plays, but that’s not his best position to rush against. There are weaker parts of Alabama to rush, so I’m fascinated to see what Georgia will try to make Jones become an impact. The other part of the game is the weakness both teams are facing against each other. Alabama is not a great pass rush team. There is no Dont’a Hightower, Courtney Upshaw or Marcell Dareus who individually can rush the pass. They have to do it as a group. But the worst thing Georgia does is pass protect. So who wins that left-handed dribble contest will probably be the story of the game.

Interesting analysis. Thanks G.
I like the "left handed dribble contest" analogy.
fair analysis of both teams from ole gary
Alot of people hate listening to them on Saturday calling games. Gary is very good at giving an accurate assesment of teams. Verne just needs to retire IMO. Guy is a joke, you cant tell me there is no one better available than Verne L.
Hard to argue with any of that. Danielson catches a lot of flack but I don't mind listening to him call a game, he knows his stuff. He tends to gush over Florida and Bama but those teams have won multiple mnc's, so it is what it is. Verne's problem with names is starting to grow on me.
One thing's for sure, if there is a big game in the SEC, Verne and Gary will probably be calling it.

i hate danielson in the booth, but i think he's spot on here. danielson is frustrating. he's sharp, knows the game, and actually points out trends that i hadn't noticed. he's not just a master of the obvious, which most color guys are. HOWEVER... he picks favorites, aggressively imposes pre-determined narratives on games and sticks to them whether they fit or not, and is far too conspicuous a presence in the booth. a good color guy ought to shed light the game; danielson puts it on himself.
and uncle verne... poor verne. he really was good in his day, but it's time to drive him out to a field somewhere and let him free.
