One Understated Problem In Mitchell Loss

Losing Malcolm Mitchell to a freak injury is not a good thing for the UGA offense. Sure, there are many of good receivers to step up. Bennett, Scott-Wesley and Conley are all good players. Wooten had some nice grabs against Clemson and knows the offense well. There are many new faces to get opportunities, and don’t forget about the tight ends and running backs in the passing game.

We know though that Mitchell is a game changer with breakaway speed. He is a playmaker.

Simply put.

But with there is one thing that Mitchell does extraordinarily well.

If you watch any CBS game, one thing that Gary Danielson just gushes over is Aaron Murray’s back shoulder throw.  Yes, Murray does that extremely well and it is a staple in our offense.  But Malcolm Mitchell does a great job of catching the back shoulder throw.  Especially in the end zone.

It seems that Mitchell and Murray have very good timing and rapport with one another.

Losing the deep threat might hurt, but I think we have the athletes to overcome that.  But do any of the other receivers have that same timing down with Murray on the throw he loves to make the most?

Time will tell.

    Good point. Bennet might be the only one.

    In deep south Georgia we are going to miss this Valdosta Wildcat on the field, but Jay Rome is in there. Best of a speedy recovery to Malcom…great competitor and player! Want to see some impact for the Vike, Josh-harvey…put the hammer on them and take one to the house.

    I think Bennett, Conley, and Tibbs could get the Job done. Scott-Wesley is our new deep threat and breakaway player. Wooten and Rumph will provide other opportunities as well. As much as i hate seeing MM going down, WR is the position that could make up for an injury.
