I'm not sure what you expect from these guys if you're opinion of that performance today is 'definitely do not want'. Not many guys stop Ed Lacy stone dead on the goal line 1vs1.
All I expect is effort, and on many, many plays it looked like he wasnt trying. He Looked perfectly content to get blocked 10 yards down the field. Its one thing if youre stepping up into the hole to take on a linemen and get blocked, its an entirely different thing to have a lack of effort which i thought was very very clear and obvious.
Like I said, this is the first time i've ever watched Georgia, and I didnt pay any attention to him in the first half, but after reading this thread at halftime i watched him and was not at all impressed with his effort. Maybe that half wasnt a fair indicative of his play. Maybe if he was playing against a more pass happy or space oriented team then Alabama I would have been more impressed.
And i'm not saying definitively that I wouldnt want him because I havnt seen him enough to really form an opinion, just based off what i watched in the 2nd half (if thats indicative of his overall play) then I would not. But i'm no scout, i'm just a dude who watches football.
