“The Mailman” Stetson Bennett returns for one last super duper senior season
No matter how the 2022 shakes out, Stetson Bennett will always be a Georgia football legend. Though it wasn’t exactly pretty, he quarterbacked the Dawgs to their most important victory in program history. Bennett returns to Athens for one last ride, hoping to build on his growing SEC legacy, as well as the legend of “The Mailman.” How good can Bennett be this upcoming season?
In 14 games last year, Bennett completed 64.5 percent of his passes for 2,862 yards, 29 touchdowns and seven interceptions. As a runner, he had 56 carries for 259 yards and a touchdown. With this undoubtedly being his team, look for him to get the absolute most out of his talent in Monken’s offense. If he plays like he can, he just might be worthy of a 2023 draft pick.
The leader of the Georgia offense is without debate the man, the myth, the legend, The Mailman.
Brock Bowers should use his John Mackey spite season to get to New York City
The most pleasant surprise of the 2021 national championship-winning season was true freshman Brock Bowers. He gave Georgia its best offensive season out of a freshman since Herschel Walker 41 years prior. Bowers had 56 catches for 882 yards and 13 receiving touchdowns. He finished with 60 total touches for 938 all-purpose yards and 14 trips to pay dirt.
The fact he did not win the John Mackey Award for the country’s best tight end is arguably the biggest travesty of award’s season. He was the best tight end college football had seen since Kyle Pitts the year prior. Better yet, instead of getting mad, just get even. Look for Bowers to be the focal point of the Georgia passing attack, as a 1,000-yard season gets him to New York City.
If this Dawg from California wine country can get to the Big Apple next December, hold my corn!
