Another sign of Ealey’s progress

Washaun Ealey fell just shy of his goal of his first 100-yard rushing game for Georgia on Saturday. But Ealey’s performance against Auburn was good enough for him to be named the SEC Freshman of the Week today.

Ealey led Georgia with 98 rushing yards on 18 carries and scored a touchdown in the 31-24 victory over Auburn.

Ealey, whose progress has been a late-season highlight for Georgia, has led the Bulldogs in rushing in each of the past four games — 71 yards vs. Vanderbilt, 70 vs. Florida, 89 vs. Tennessee Tech and 98 vs. Auburn. Since making his debut against LSU in the fifth game of the season, Ealey has 379 yards rushing and three touchdowns.

Against Auburn on Saturday, he had six carries for 36 yards in a third-quarter touchdown drive that he capped with a 1-yard run to put the Bulldogs ahead 17-14, their first lead of the night.

And on a four-play, 39-yard, fourth-quarter touchdown drive that broke a 24-24 tie and provided the margin of victory, Ealey carried three times for 15 yards before Caleb King scored on a 24-yard run.

he is finding the holes rather than running into the backs of the lineman-thought King ran well also–hopefully we can turn it up a notch next weekend build some momentum for Tech game

The O-line is also starting to GATA a little better than before as well. That combined with hard running is a nice combination.

So what happened to Samuels? Is he relegated to the bench now? Is he playing any special teams in hopes of the start of his LB career?

We’ll need a running game against UK for sure. GO DAWGS!!!

If he’s not already on there, Samuels needs to be put on kickoff coverage at the very least. If he’s not starting at RB, he needs to be contributing somewhere.

I have attempted to bring it to the attention of your fellow AJC writers, but you need to ban “Saint Simons” for his crude, offensive language. My children read this blog and you need to do something about his lascivious comments.

Tech plays Duke, has a coach named “Johnson”, lives in the ACC, fails to fill their miniature stadium, and is playing in a semi-championship game that even the original host city (Jax) no longer wants….Does this sound like a program on the way up or a place that is a “destination” program? You know as I do that we are watching this season’s comet…QUICK LOOK FAST that was it, it’s gone.

I’m starting to think Saint Simons has either hacked the AJC, in which case he/she should go to jail, or is actually one of the moderators or writers at the AJC. How else could he/she/it comment first on every article unless they sit in front of their computer literally all day, every day. If that is true, Saint Simons, you’re either a child, unemployed, retired (which would be really sad if you’ve decided to spend the rest of your life doing this), or a homeless person who lives at the library and uses their computers until someone calls the cops and has you removed. From your disgusting sexual comments in the past, I’m thinking the latter. Care to explain yourself??

Ealy seems to have that “it” factor similar to Knowshon. He makes a loss of yardage play end up in a 1-2 yard gain. Then he finds the hole and doesn’t run up the linemans back.

I didn’t think coming in that he did and thought of him more of a Richard Samuel type. By the way is Samuel still on the roster? Looks like a middle linebacker after all. Go DAWGS!

Does anybody know if I’m still academically eligible for this football season? I heard Joe Hamilton couldn’t read and write but the Tech athletic department did a good job of covering it up. Maybe I’ll be just as fortunate.

Ealey rocks. He ran for more td’s and yards than Knowshn Moreno or Herschel Walker in High Schoool, 133 td’s, and over 8000 yards. He is averaging over 5 yards a carry and got us going several times in the game when things were negative.

When Richt gets a 100 yard rusher, he has 38 wins and only 3 losses.

Run Ealey Run! Live up to your potential my man! Go get your Heisman and get Ga a Natl’ Championship!

Samuels was on kick coverage. he was held at the corner that allowed the Auburn return man to break the big run.

Hey BobDog:

Glad you saw that hold too.

Samuels may have at least slowed the guy down !

Oh Well,

Don’t worry. Ealey’s “progress” will come to a screeching halt in 2 weeks. You doggies think everybody’s Herschel, don’t you? Ealey is weak. That all you got?

Ealey is making exactly what you say.. PROGRESS. Improving and contributing in all the right ways right now. He even endures the “gouging” and poking from the other team. WAIT!! he hasnt had to fend off any poking yet, that is what comes in the saturday after thanksgiving.

Ealey is the next Moreno! King is going to be a great alternate – be like Auburn’s duo of Carnell Williams and Ronnie Brown! Bulk Samuel up a little more and put him at FB next year. That would be a great running 1-2-3 punch. 6-4 Green, 6-4 Brown and 6-5 Durham at WR so should be a great receiving core next year with our young blossoming TE’s. Who will step up at QB? Murray, Gray, Mettenberger?
