    Pop quiz... which offense historically throws the ball more at GS? Flexbone (Erk/PJ/Monken) or Gun Option (Fritz/Lunsford)

    I’d imagine strictly from memory that apart from Monken it’s pretty close.

    Not surprising to me at all. And what is the w - l record under each quarterback?

    When did I ever retract from that statement? If we wanted to run what UGA does we most certainly could and I never said otherwise.

    You're 100% correct.

    I just find it interesting we threw more out of flexbone than shotgun option... you'd think being in the gun would correlate to increased passing. Granted this was just total yards and not attempts but I think it speaks to my point.

    What I also notice is we need to find a true dual QB... like Shaw.

    I’ve never once said I want us to be like LSU (although who could really oppose that right now I don’t know) but all this talk abo how we won’t be able to get top notch OL, NFL WR’s and all that is funny to me. Last time I checked we wouldn’t be going up against NFL DL and DB’s. It’s all relative.

    Coaching matters. Doesn’t matter what offense it is. A well coached offense will work and a bad one won’t. That’s why you see Air Raids that work and Air Raids that dont. Option offense that work and option offenses that don’t. “Balanced” offenses that work and balanced offense that don’t. We can recruit for any system RELEVANT to our peers. So get a good staff and we can have a good offense of any kind. That’s not even a debatable fact.

    And yes anybody who says otherwise is saying Ga State is a better place to be than Ga Southern because they have been able to recruit pro style passers, dial threat QB’s, really good WR’s, etc. So we can’t?

    Yes, and teams throw more in general now than they did "back then" in the '80s and '90s. "We can throw better from the gun" is a myth. Of course, I wouldn't necessarily want a flexbone offense that didn't have a (shotgun) package for throwing the ball in passing situations, which we had in 2011.

    We should be recruiting QBs like Shaw, and we should also be recruiting QBs like Jayson Foster. Both fit the mold of "most dynamic QBs under 6'1" that we can find."

    The other thing about the flexbone QB's listed is that they all were smart, knew how to run the offense and could make the pitch. Oh they also had the option to audible and change the play .
