"It was unanimous among our staff that Joe gives us the best chance to win and that's where our focus needs to be," Richt said in a statement. "There's still a lot of football left this season. We tell our players to finish the drill and we are committed to doing that this week and each week the remainder of the season. We have faith in Joe that he gives us the best opportunity to do that. At the same time, we do plan on Logan Gray getting some playing time this week at quarterback."That is incredibly disheartening. No one wants to give up on a season. The 2009 senior class deserves the team's best efforts to win. But so does the 2010 senior class. And the 2011.
If Joe Cox and Logan Gray are unanimously thought more viable than Aaron Murray and Zach Mettenberger, and so much so that neither of the freshmen merits playing time at the end of a disintegrated season, we are truly in the kind of trouble that lasts for years.
How have we failed to recruit better quarterback play than what we've seen on the field this year?
By the way, A.J. Green, who deserves to have someone competent throw him passes, is injured and will sit out Saturday against Tennessee Tech, according to The AJC.
