Halftime Report: Offense Struggling, Defense Dazzling


As the Georgia Bulldogs take a 20-7 lead into the locker room, there is good news and bad news for the No. 2 team in the country.

Let’s start with the good news, alright?

Defense:

The young Georgia defense does not seem to be fazed by the atmosphere in Columbia and continues to impress with a barrage of big plays.

Tyson Campbell and Tae Crowder both had an impressive half for the Dawgs, but the lead is only 13 at the half.

However, Drew Lock and Missouri’s high-powered offense were held to only seven points in the first two quarters combined.

Alright, on to the dreaded bad news.

Offense:

Jim Chaney seems to have forgotten there was a game to play today, as the normally clever offensive coordinator has made a number of questionable play calls in the first half.

Jake Fromm has struggled to lead the offense to the end zone, with the only touchdowns coming off of defensive and special teams plays.

Fans are calling for Justin Fields to start the second half and at this rate, we might not disagree with them.  Putting Fields in for a series or two seems wise, just to see if the Dawgs can find any success on the offensive side of the ball.

We are overreacting, with Georgia still leading by 13, but that first half had to scare a lot of fans out there.  The Bulldogs will likely leave Columbia with a win, but the offense needs to regroup.
