Nice assessment.
To me, the key is using Newman to develop a diverse offense with many options. I would roll him out often with an option to run, pitch out to the RB or throw to multiple targets short and long. If the defense comes up to stop the run, then the RB becomes a receiver and Newman should have an option to throw over the incoming defense to trailing receivers. If the defense doesn't come up to stop the run then take the 4 or 5 yards they give you. Do this often enough and it opens up the dive in the middle or a deep play-action pass. Or fake the dive and fake the roll-out and then stop and throw the play-action pass over the top. If we have decent receivers this season, our offense could become a dynamic contrast compared to last season.

Agreed.
I'm excited to see what a full season of Pickens as "the man" looks like.

I'm excited to see what Washington, Rosemy, Burto, and Smith can bring as true freshmen.

I'm excited to see if Blalock can rebound after his ACL surgery. He just comes off as a gamer. A little bit faster, stronger, bigger, quicker than everyone gives him credit for in the big moments.

I'm excited to see if a better playcaller can push Robertson into another stratosphere of receiver.

Not sold on zamir white...he is coming off a knee injury and will be facing a lot of pressure continuing the trend of our great running game. Luckily we have other capable backs...I do think Newman will be fine though

Two of them but that second one was in August 2018. He'll be two years out from it by the time we're playing. I think he'll be 100%.

I agree though that it's not going to all be on him. Not with McIntosh, who's been underrated and overlooked to some extent...I think he'll be a factor.

I also think Milton can contribute early and Monken will figure out better ways to utilize Cook's particular skills.

Based off what? You're aren't the first poster to say this but what is everyone basing his evaluation off of? He barely played last year and his only carried the ball vs 2 P5 teams (GT and Baylor)

I'll be surprised if this team wins a national championship but wouldn't be surprised at an SEC Championship.

this is a fairly common cliche over the years in prediction threads, and im not trying to pick on you but it makes absolutely zero sense.

im just imagining a world where we go 12-1 (i guess 11-2 would be possible) and beat some combination of virginia, bama, florida, auburn, someone elite in the sec title game, and you are like yup that makes sense.

and then we beat oklahoma and ohio state or some shite (who will be equally as good and possibly worse than teams we have already played) and you are like "wow how in the hell did we do that? never thought we'd pull it off after winning the toughest conference in cfb!!"

Ohio State and Clemson do a really good job preparing. It's not weird to think we could win the SEC and and still lose. It's happened to Bama. Twice. To those two teams.

Edit: Hell it happened to us in 2017.

Certainly not weird but wouldn't be "suprising" either.

OSU? They're 0-2 in their last 2 playoff games and one was 31-0 loss to Clemson.

BTW,I think does a very good in game prep most of the time even with 2 games we lost
to Bama. (I wasn't happy with the game prep for Texas or LSU in '18)

I just hope there's a Herrien in there somewhere that can give us 40 to 60 yards a game in relief of the starters when needed. He saved us at least three games last year.

This is a lot of speculation. But I'm not worried about depth.

White, Cook, Milton, McIntosh, and Edwards. We won't be hurting for a 3rd guy to come off the bench.
The question is if we have a stud or 2 who can carry the team to the endzone with 10-20 rushing TDs.

I agree with you. If Cook was that big of a threat he would have shown out by now.

re: 2020 season discussion
You could legitimately argue that each position group on the defense is the best in the nation, and each has at least a good a case as deepest. Plus a lot of these kids are underrated and could become stars this season (Dean, Smith, Davis, Walker, Cine, Stephenson). This could be an All-Time great unit.

So here's the question: How much offense does Georgia need to be the best team in the country?

...

Has anyone gone back and watched Monken's teams on O? The scheme couldn't fit Newman better if it were designed around him. Heavy on his strengths (RPO and downfield passing, something in which Newman excels) and light where he's more average (intermediate throws especially over the middle). It's obviously unfortunate we're playing without months to install a system, but given the circumstances having a graduate QB who will not be asked to do anything too unfamiliar is certainly best case.

Pass catchers are solid. We have a true #1 receiver and talent everywhere including tight end. I can't see a situation where at least 1 of the 5 top 100 kids fails to step up, and one is all the team needs.

Monken loves screens about as much as he loves to throw flat and wheel routes to the backs. Is Cook or someone else going to step up to really seize this opportunity and fill this role?

Then there's the O-line. Run blocking is plenty of zone/iso. Nothing new there, but the younger unit will have to gel and become used to the screens and the amount Monken likes to move ther pocket.

Who is Zeus's now? Have injuries capped his potential or will he put the nation on notice?

Safe to say this year's team is better than 2019, but is Newman a first round kid? If the answer is yes, and Cook (or someone) can be a target out of the backfield, and White is 100% the team really has no weakness.

The absolute floor is slightly better than 2019.

If everything gels this could be the best team in the country by season's end.

We must be better than 2019 because our schedule is tougher. I mean Virginia and notre dame are basically an even swap with Virginia probably being a little worse after losing the qb, but Florida, Tennessee, and Kentucky will likely be better and of course we go to Tuscaloosa. If we aren’t better than 19 we may lose 3

Geez,here we go again.So,do you have some type of "hunch" about McIntosh as well?

You do realize that Cook really hasn't been 100% since his ankle injury/surgery in '18 which he also reinjured last year.
