IMO, he got better at protecting the football this season but every now and again he still threw that interception that left you wondering what in the world was he thinking. This is especially true in "big games". If he can clean that up and maybe go to his check downs a little more instead of forcing it down the field when the play is not there, I think next season could be legendary for him and Dawg Nation. This isn't a negative thread. I think AM is the best QB in the history of the program. I had my doubts about him after the USCe game, but I think his legacy has been cemented and he will only build on it. Interested in your opinions...
He did a good job of decreasing interceptions and increasing his completion percentage. He needs to stop throwing the pick 6 on the screen. And he has said he wants to scramble at times when nothing is open. There were times when we failed to convert 3rd down when the QB run was open. I think he can do that. I do not know if he can increase total yards, he has set that bar real high. But maybe he could get to 4200 yds. and 68% comp. pct. If he can do it he would be in serious Heisman consideration. Will be fun to watch!
Start better. Seems like every big game he comes out nervous, leading to mistakes. Start off on the right foot in games. Also work on mobility. If he wants to succeed in the NFL, he has to be more mobile.
It's quite simple really. He needs to play against Clemson, South Carolina, Florida and LSU the same way he plays against the other 8 teams on our schedule.
Oh yeah, and like someone else said - stop throwing the dadgum pick sixes on the screen pass. Good lord, read that crap, if it ain't there don't throw it.
Staying alive in the pocket and extending plays....not going down when someone swipes at him!
I think he needs to get better at screen passes thrown near/behind the line of scrimmage. He scares me every single time with those.
Deep ball accuracy
I hope he continues to play like he did vs Bama next year vs all of the opponents. He really shut the critics up about his play vs top 25 teams
Steve Spurrier is a God, and Mark Richt worships him
Not to take anything away from our returning receivers, but his deep ball will different without Tavarres King.
TKing was a GREAT deep ball threat. I've heard on the radio comments about UGA having 10 other receivers during the Richt era better than King. That may or may not be true.
However, I would argue that there may only be 1 or 2 true deep threats better than TKing.
Those homerun plays can hide a lot of warts on the offense in games.
The hope is that Conley, JSW, and/or Mitchell can continue Aaron Murray's progression as the Mad Bomber.

Hopefully Rumph can help out too
Rumph will help fill this role next season. After that tho, not sure
I think Justin Scott-Wesley can definitely take the top off of the defense with his speed.
I agree. But it is a low percentage throw.
T King made it efficient. Hopefully we continue to reel them in.
Murray's the BEST deep ball passer in all of college football. No one was even close to him this year in this aspect.
to me the #1 thing he can improve upon is pocket manipulation. the ability to slide and move in the pocket, reset his feet, and fire off a good throw. murray is a phenomenal rhythm passer - its his strongest positive trait. the problem is when his rhythm gets disrupted. he's a good passer on the planned rollout, but outside of that, when he's on the move whether inside the pocket or scrambling, he's simply not very good.
watch an nfl game this weekend and watch rodgers or brady move within the pocket to avoid the rush and yet always look like they are in complete control.
That's one thing that really impressed me in the Nebraska game -- his movement in the pocket. He stepped up well, making the pass rush even more ineffective.

You apparently didn't see many of his deep balls to Mitchell his freshman year. And he threw nifty 50 yard pass to Conley in the bowl game. To be honest, I feel as though until this year he had the least amount of timing chemistry with TK of all the receivers.
To improve, he needs to roll out more. His height will never let him see a safety dropping back over the deep middle if he is standing right behind linemen.
He could play both ways!
This is what he needs to improve upon to get a shot at gametime in the NFL.
I think he can make every throw. I think he can figure out every defense and adjustment.
He's just got to be able to improve upon getting first downs when defenders blitz or just flat out beat their man on the OL. The NFL is less about protecting the ball and playing for another series than it is about squeezing every possible point out of every possible possession.
