I keep coming back to this one thing: We will have the 3 best players on the field Saturday - Jones, 'Tree and Murray. Bama has a fantastic squad, but they don't have a real difference maker anywhere on their roster.
We saw what happened with LSU last year when they had that kind of player. Had their QB position not been a dumpster fire, I think they win it all last year.
I think Bama is less likely to panic and beat themselves. And that's what keeps my stomach churning. We're very capably of panicking and giving the game away.
That's the one thing that scares me. I know we can play with them, but they've been there and done it and never buckle under pressure.
I disagree, the best players on the field are gonna be Chance Warmac, Cyrus Ko, and Jarvis Jones. I would take AJ over Murray as well.
We'll agree to disagree on that one.
I'll take Murray. The Bama kid led a great drive against LSU. He also threw a bad interception at the end of the A&M game that killed their opportunity to win.
Murray with just a little protection has a chance in this game to take it over.
We're going to see what's what The teams play each other this Saturday.
The Bama OL is very, very good. That's the area where Bama has a clear advantage over UGA. But, those guys aren't going to make a game changing play.
AJ's a fine QB and he has been, FOR SURE, the more consistent of the two. But he's not in Murray's league IF Murray is playing his game and not hitting the panic button.
You can add ogletree to that. And I would take Aaron Murray with your line over any QB in the country. Give Murray time and he is lethal.
I don't know, he had all the time in the world against UF and played his worse game of the year. Most QB's have a built in timer in their head and when they can stand around and look, they tend to make mistakes. A lot of his mistakes in the UF game, imo, was not checking down correctly and I think that was due to the amount of time he had. Now to give UF a little credit they did have pretty good coverage, just no pass rush.
I agree he sh*t the bed there. I will say 2 of those interceptions aren't on him to an extent. Jay Rome had one off his hands and one to Wooten that while it was behind him a little it was catchable. You are right though he should of went to the next progression.
AJ has just as much arm talent as Murray. He makes very few mistakes and doesn't get asked to do near as much. He won't be the reason Georgia wins if they do. However Murray could easily be the reason UA does if they do. I think this game comes down to the Alabama willingness to let the Oline take over the game. If UGA can't run the ball or stop the run it won't win. For UA they have to get off the field on third down.
They buckled with TAM!
I'll take AJ as well. He knows how to win big games.
He's lost his share of big games.
He's got some in the W column as well.
AJ has nevEr played in the SEC champ game tho. Murray has. Fulmer once said that the SEC champ game was a bigger enviroment than that of the BCS champ game. Those are Fulmers words.

He lost a huge game at home to LSU last season.
He lost a big game at home to A&M this season.
He's got big game wins, too. Obviously.
But it's not like he never misses.
"He also threw a bad interception at the end of the A&M game that killed their opportunity to win. "
If AJ waits 20ms longer for the player in motion to string out the CB tat play is almost undefendable. Yet, he started it too early, threw it, and it did NOT work. Can't blame anyone else but it was a lot closer than most people think.
