Well, it could have been worse. Georgia could have hired the Cowboys’ secondary coach. Or its offensive coordinator. Or Wade Phillips. Or Jerry Jones.
On the plus side, Todd Grantham’s defensive line sacked Brett Favre three times — actually, two of the sacks were by linebackers, but let’s not quibble — and held Adrian Peterson under 100 yards rushing. (Under 64 yards, to be precise.) On the minus side was … well, everything else. The Vikings scored 34 points. Favre threw four touchdown passes, three to to Sidney Rice.
If you’re Georgia, you don’t mind. Grantham gets to report to his new job — coordinating Georgia’s defense — this week, as opposed to after Signing Day, which would have been his start date would have been had Dallas reached the Super Bowl. In sum, he gets to go recruitin’. And this is the Most Important Recruiting Class ever, at least until next year.
From a Bulldog perspective, it would have been nice had the Dallas D given a better account of itself two days
