Great way to end the freshman campaign and send the seniors off with a win! Excited for the next chapter in Athens! — Jacob Eason (@skinnyqb10) December 31, 2016
But there’s no denying that there’s work to be done in Athens, and it will start with true freshman QB Jacob Eason.
Eason went 12-of-21 for 164 yards and two touchdowns. While, his running ability opened up the Georgia offense on multiple occasions, his passing game left a lot to be desired.
He spent much of his time on his back or trying to evade a potential sack.
To say Eason is a bad quarterback would be incorrect. The five-star quarterback has certainly exceeded expectations as a rookie during a coaching transition at a school that plays in one of the nation’s toughest conferences.
Going on the record: I know some are disappointed with Jacob Eason's freshman year. Me? I expect you'll see him make a big jump in 2017.— Anthony Dasher (@AnthonyDasher1) December 31, 2016
But if the Dawgs want to upgrade their offense and be truly competitive in the SEC, it will begin with getting Eason to that next level.
