    Hartman's postgame interview was quite funny after the VT game. He is outspoken, but team first guy, and heaped praises on Andersen.....saying Andersen - picks him off all of the time in practice. Then he made fun of Dave Goren who was stuck on mute. It made me laugh.

    He's a good athlete, but not a freak.

    I think Wake's system, along with 3 very good WRs, led to good numbers in the last part of 2018 and then most of 2019. But he's not as good a QB as John Wolford, for example, and its almost a miracle that Wolford is on a team at all.

    I think he gets picked in rounds 4-5, which means a team is not going to invest a bunch of time in him. If he gets an opportunity due to injury/being drafted by a team where the other QBs suck, then I hope he does well. I just don't see it happening.

    Cheeseheads12 has it.

    It is not a negative term. Hartman doesn't mind being in the spotlight. Not a bad thing. Sage in the shirtless hoodie? Peacocking.

    BTW, I absolutely predict that Sam is going to either have the best game of his career against UNC or the worst (from trying to hard, not playing under control). His personality type absolutely leads me to think he will want to out duel Sam Howell in a big big way. And my money is on our Sam.

    Newman is/was a better runner than Hartman, especially in the red zone. He was a legit threat. But, more running = injuries.

    Newman also got us going with the deep ball.

    It's been nice to see Hartman hit some deep passes lately.

    some of that was on Newman, but a lot of that is the scheme

    I can't imagine there are teams that use the middle of the field in the passing game less than Wake, or throw fewer screens to RBs

    it's bananas

    DeaconSig loves to throw shade on WF, and anyone that wears the Black and Gold.

    According to NFL scouts, incorrect: Go to 2:15 into the highlight video. This throw.



    There are a number of NFL Draft grade videos that call out this throw as one the NFL scouts needed to see. The fact that is was, I think, a 3rd and 18 throw when we were starting to be on the ropes in that game, was gravy.

    my dream situation is a mid-round pick of Jamie by the Bears

    while i am mostly clueless on this subject, my observations over the years is that the gap between what NFL teams do in the draft and what fans think NFL teams will do in the draft (often with relatively high degrees of confident) is larger than just about any other topic. often followed by lots of GMs being called idiots after the draft.

    And with that being said ... :-)

    s a Chiefs fan, I think he'd be an ideal backup. If Mahomes goes down, you run a reduced offense that includes the long ball, but has 15 plays specific to Newman's running ability.

    If Newman actually plays in the NFL he will keep playing. He just has to get on the field. I trust he will give Clawson and WF proper reference.

    At least Bennett is a competitor.

    You realize that no one ever planned for Stetson Bennett to be the starting quarterback at Georgia, right ? He's also not standing in the way of Newman being drafted in the first three rounds.

    Yo is Biff still peacocking about that midget who plays QB for UGA
