“The players that are most important to the Bulldogs success in 2016.”
MOST IMPORTANT BULLDOGS 2016-2017 SEASON :
A team is made up of much when we’ve recruited the average # 7 Scout.com Recruiting Rankings for the years these guys have been here who make up our team.
4.Terry Godwin – he was our most accomplished QB last year 2015 season. If the ball had been thrown to him properly and not behind him he would have had a more profound effect on a team who FIRED their coach for going 9-3 last season as Mark Richt did.
8.Sony Michel was misused last year as our # 2 best at receptions yet used too much not out in space. His natural position is wide receiver. He is our 16th Bulldog to rush for over 1000 yards in a season. Sony Michel was critically misused last season not out in space and we acted like we had no one to run the ball other than him up the middle when we DID.
9.Jacob Eason almost did not make your list of the 10 Most Important Bulldogs 2016-2017 season. OBVIOUSLY he is at the VERY TIPPY TOP OF THE LIST # 1. Either that or we can SCRATCH this season as yet another write-off before it begins.
10.DaQuan Hawkins 9 days ago you listed at # 10 of Most Important Bulldogs 2016-2017 season.
Some of these guys are a stretch at best.
Some of the guys you left-off altogether are glaringly missing and who clearly are FAR MORE IMPORTANT 2016-2017 season than these 10.
I’mYourHuckleberry 10 Most Important Bulldogs 2016-2017 Season : Kirby is # 1 as he is the difference now after 8 years of what you called unsatisfactory performance by Mark Richt avg # 7 Scout.com recruiting ranking but avg 4 losses a season for the last entire 8 excruciating years here.
Other than Jacob Eason we might as well have not recruited anyone for none other made your list while others did who obviously are NOT going to help us beat teams like you say of the vols Florida and Ole Miss not to mention Missouri North Carolina Auburn and don’t forget Georgie tek yellowjackets beat Mark Richt both of his last 2 games at Sanford including the year before last here as they play us here this year then our SEC Championship Game then our bowl game hopefully BOTH teams ranked at the top of the Final AP Poll on the national stage EVERYONE watching us for a change.
Sorry I’mYourHuckleberry but I have problems with your Top 10 Most Important Bulldogs 2016-2017 season therefore. Enjoyed reading it but you listed some who aren’t and left off others who OBVIOUSLY will be in my humble opinion if we are ALLOWED (or earned the Right) to add-on or comment I’mYourHuckleberry.
Greg Pyke picked to be NFL Draft Pick # 7 of OG after this season and you do not even list him but do these other 10 instead ahead of him ?
Can’t see it sorry I’mYourHuckleberry.
Mecole Hardman Jr. is OBVIOUSLY 1 of the 10 Most Important Bulldogs 2016-2017 season. Our special teams have sucked. We have really nothing but questions about running the football today and he is a great rusher. From there or out in space he is a great target for Jacob Eason you do list. But Mecole Hardman Jr. you don’t I’mYourHuckleberry ?

How in the world can you leave off Tyler Catalina I’mYourHuckleberry ? And to list these you do consider the 10 Most Important Bulldogs 2016-2017 season and leave off Tyler Catalina is a travesty and injustice.
Davin Bellamy is left off so you can prop-up these other guys who have no business being listed ahead of him as well ? Talk about injustice.
Just my opinion now.
If we are BACK to allowing opinions around here with my over 50 years of Seasons’ Tickets studying all this as my hobby quite obviously. A hobby I’m quite good at I might add.
I am PLEASED that you did leave off Isaiah McKenzie as the Top 10 Most Important Bulldogs going into this 2016-2017 season given his failures on and off the field leading up to this up-coming season. He has some proving to do including demanding that we buy some of the $ 150 beeping footballs so that he learns how to properly hold on to the football with the fundamental 5-points of contact causing the balls to whistle or beep so they know they are finally holding the ball correctly. Up until now he would not have had a ball not only not wear out its battery but in fact never beeped yet here for us. I still don’t like the way he treats ladies off the field either. This man was coddled.
I am likewise pleased that there not only is no mention of Greyson Lambert but specifically you also LISTED Jacob Eason.
Even if it was at # 9.
Greyson Lambert fumbled the ball 7 times last season for us and others that were not charged to him in his sorry ass season of only 12 times throwing a TD Pass ALL SEASON. He rushed 29 times for minus – 39 yards. He was # 109 Passing Offense refusing to TRY to throw the football down the field thinking he would lose his Starting QB job if he did and keep it if it did NOT. And he was # 119 on 3rd Down Conversions as a direct result thereof.
So thanks for that too I’mYourHuckleberry.
But even Chipper Towers AJ-C DawgNation who completed his series on this question before you even started yours I’mYourHuckleberry listed Jacob Eason at # 2 Most Important Bulldogs 2016-2017 season.
Why # 9 for you Jacob Eason ?
I’d have Jacob Eason at # 2 after Kirby and if players only as you specify # 1 clearly and undeniably with Mecole Hardman Jr. # 3.
Mecole Hardman Jr. was invited to the Alabama game last year by Mark Richt and said afterwards that Kirby’s guys were ready to play but Mark Richt’s were NOT. AND Mecole Hardman Jr.’s MOM said then too that Elite Prospects WANT TO WIN !
And you left him off your guess as to the top 10 most important Bulldogs 2016-2017 season.

Again a team is made-up of much when we average # 7 Scout.com recruiting rankings as we do for this 2016-2017 football team.
Indeed several of the coaching additions this season could join Kirby at this point in my list such as Dell McGee whom I love and always have ever since even before he told Mark Richt to go jump in a damn lake.
Not only coaching additions to this 2016-2017 team but FANS are MOST IMPORTANT TOO. For far too long these last 8 years according to you of unsatisfactory results the Mark Richt Apologists have held back this # 11 All-Time Wins’ Program with 6 NC and # 3 best in bowl games. Our FANS have held us back. If we’re going to be successful sometime SOON this has to end.
Now 7 and a half months AFTER I FIRED Mark Richt they STILL are whining about it daily on EVERY BLOG on the Internet notably daily on senator Bluto’s gtp get the picture blog.
As noted herein daily.
For this reason I list our FANS as Most Important Bulldogs 2016-2017 season. They have to be UNIFIED as Kirby has repeated 2000 times already. And they are NOT.
Read any senator bluto gtp get the picture blog and READ THE COMMENTS.
“I don’t think Mark Richt is losing his job this year” November 2015 mind you.
“I can’t deny it was a decision by Greg McGarity that could not be justified.”
“Again I’m not saying that you can’t make a case that he didn’t deserve to lose his job.”
“He isn’t going anywhere.”
Jim Chaney I would not list yet as he has to prove himself to me from what I can tell so far. Will he have the # 89 Passing Offense of Mark Richt Mike Bobo and Hutson Mason of 2 years ago 2014 now this season ? Will he have the # 109 Passing Offense of Mark Richt and Greyson Lambert last year 2015 now this season ? Well Kirby is counting upon him to fix this crap isn’t he ? It won’t happen without Jacob Eason. Jim Chaney has STOOD IDLY BY as Kirby did not give Jacob Eason 1 single snap with the # 1 unit. If Jim Chaney thinks I missed that he is gravely mistaken. It’s his responsibility with Kirby only 1 season on offense here as running backs’ coach ever in his lifetime to point out to Kirby that Jacob Eason has to get used to the # 1 unit and THEY to HIM. We wasted the Spring.
Mel Tucker will have to prove himself to ME too not just to Kirby from what I can tell so far as well. Kirby said we were protected here at Georgia last year on defense. Well we certainly DID have an easy schedule to FIRE the coach for being 9-3. There were 29 teams Division 1-A FBS who made it a 10-win season last year and Mark Richt did NOT DESPITE a protected easy schedule since he was only 9-3 and UNRANKED in the Final AP Poll Top 25 therefore. Thus Mark Richt’s 2015 team NOT ONLY COST HIM HIS JOB but more importantly to ME since I was FIRING him anyway he did not even make the Final AP Poll Top 25 even with a bowl win against an unranked opponent him coaching at Miami of Florida at the time.
Half the latest 8 years Kirby was National Champion calling all the defensive plays as Defensive Coordinator while Mark Richt for his latest 8 years here was NOT ranked half the time in the Final AP Poll Top 25 even.
Please do not hold-up these guys who have NOT GOTTEN THE JOB DONE around here as they underperformed and act like now they are the top 10 most important Bulldogs. No they aren’t. They have to PROVE themselves. There is QUITE a DIFFERENCE there in our thinking I’mYourHuckleberry.
I would love to see them do well.
They AREN’T my expectations since they HAVEN’T and HAD THE CHANCE to.
Sam Pittman our Offensive Linemen Coach is ALREADY the difference for Kirby SIGNING Jacob Eason. And he has REALLY LINED them UP since joining the staff and causing Jacob Eason’s Dad’s quote that that is the reason he quit looking at Florida crocodiles when he certainly DID when Mark Richt was fired.
The Dirty Dozen Running Backs 2016-2017 season I highlight have been left-off your list entirely other than Nick Chubb and Sony Michel. How about at least 4 others I see Kirby using as running backs you leave off for some of the likes of those you do list ?
No one is talking about Charlie Woerner. That is a BIG HUGE MISTAKE. I promise he could rush for 1000 yards this season for us. I have seen him run the football.
Our SoS this season is top 10 in the nation.
We are not getting through it with the running backs left-off EVERY BLOG’S LIST except mine of the Dirty Dozen Running Backs 2016-2017 season who will set RECORDS for us. Trust me on this.
I do have a small amount of credibility on my PREDICTIONS don’t I I’mYourHuckleberry sir ?
Yes we lost 2 dozen guys in the great exodus here after last season guys who averaged the # 7 Scout.com recruiting ranking and DOMINATED the NFL Combines winning those Awards and monies who were misused here by Mark Richt. But since Kolton Houston graduated after last year too joining Mark Richt’s Dream Team in the great exodus after last season those guys averaged 4 losses a season too while they were here with 24 losses in 6 years the same record Greg McGarity and Mark Richt shared together and for which he was FIRED summarily. And of course these last remnants of the Dream Team fared very well in the NFL Draft and free agent signings. They just did not do shit here.
Tracy Rocker indeed was already here but he stayed unlike Thomas Brown. He’s great too.
Ben Cleveland how can he be left off while others you list are ?
I just don’t get it.
How can Isaac Nauta be left off while others are listed by you AHEAD of Isaac Nauta ?
Tim Kimbrough # 14 of ILB if he did not flunk-out when grades came out December and was suspended academically for the bowl game I presume. Recall as well as reported here that Mark Richt demoted Tim Kimbrough for the Georgie tek yellowjackets’ game. Did he have reports Tim Kimbrough was behind in his grades at that time ?
Quincy Mauger # 18 of SS.
I am at a loss.
I think you think Kirby is NOT playing these freshman for example to just name one group you left off entirely except for Jacob Eason I’mYourHuckleberry sir and NFL Draft Picks as another group YOU SAY WILL NOT BE TOP 10 MOST IMPORTANT BULLDOGS 2016-2017 SEASON.
I KNOW he will play these freshmen and NFL Draft Picks and THESE on my list in this blog post will MOST certainly end-up on the Top 10 Most Important Bulldogs this 2016-2017 season up-coming I’mYourHuckleberry sir.
There is NO WAY they can’t.
Frankly if some of MY LIST DON’T we have little hope this season.
I read quite a few of these lists across the Internet and I have the only list that really lists the Most Important Bulldogs 2016-2017 season.
Yes I think outside the box. I have never been put in a bias box.
I know Riley Ridley is going to have a great career here catching Jacob Eason’s passes as we’ve ALREADY seen.
I know Julian Rochester is going to have a great career here and it ALL STARTS with his season 2016-2017. To list these others who have NOT PROVEN they are worthy of your list of top 10 when they have proven that to you I’mYourHuckleberry while leaving off guys like these I suggest INSTEAD of THEM is incredibly short-sighted as I see it. If I am allowed to offer-up an opinion or have any kind of proven track record at doing so.
You know there’s a chance Javon Wims does extremely well this season AND next season I’mYourHuckleberry sir. Leaving him and these others I highlight off as a mention even while including some you did list Top 10 is going to make MY LIST more relevant than yours. I am sure of that.
How important is it that Kirby signed Elijah Holyfield now ? List those you did and not mention this ? Big gamble on your part to UN-LIST Elijah Holyfield while LISTING clearly questionable choices of Top 10 Most Important Bulldogs 2016-2017 season. In my opinion I would list him AHEAD of several of yours.
Michail Carter – Tyler Simmons – David Marshall – Tyler Clark – Jaleel Laguins – you listed some long shots I think these on my list are BETTER than.
You can NOT list a player who HAS NOT PERFORMED well so far and LIST HIM as Top 10 Most Important Bulldogs 2016-2017 season I’mYourHuckleberry.
No matter how much YOU WANT HIM TO PERFORM FINALLY given the opportunity ALREADY.
Brian Herrien is going to rush for over 1000 yards in a season I am CONVINCED. I am so proud of this young man ! And yet you hold up these OTHERS instead of him ? I would LIST HIM. I have. I have said so.
Kirby says he needs Depth across the board and we DON’T HAVE IT he said. If that is the case the only way he does that is PLAY THE FRESHMAN not just Jacob Eason who isn’t going to be the # 9 Most Important Bulldog 2016-2017 season either.
I’m sorry but I have a LOT better list than yours. Mark it. Check it out.
