ATHENS – The “Boss” of Georgia’s offensive line was named offensive lineman of the week on Monday.

David Andrews, who has been nicknamed “Boss” since his youth football days in Atlanta, played like a man in charge in Georgia’s 38-0 win over Auburn this past Saturday. Andrews, a 6-foot-2, 295-pound sophomore from Johns Creek, graded out 88 percent and recorded six “dominator” blocks and three knockdowns. He anchored a line that helped the  Bulldogs roll up 497 yards against the Tigers and limited them to only one sack of quarterback Aaron Murray.

Murray passed for 208 yards and three touchdowns and tailbacks Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall each rushed for more than 100 yards in the win, which clinched the SEC Eastern Division title. Much of Andrews’ good work came against fellow Georgians Jeff Whitaker and Gabe Wright.

Andrews is a first-year starter who was replacing four-year starter Ben Jones on Georgia’s offensive line.

I thought I saw Murray tackled behind the line at least 3 times. Didnt qualify a couple of those as sacks, I guess.

I see a very bright future for “The Boss” and UGAs Oline. All the worriers, can relax, and all the haters can do what you do best. Be condesending, jealous, pieces of poo. Our Oline is almost complete. Did you hear me L.T.???

Didn’t “tide roll” say Andrews was too little to be a SEC center?

Can we call him a moron now?

David Andrew’s dad is a complete douchebag. Met him at the game and he was without a doubt one of the biggest pompous pricks I’ve ever had to sit behind. Made sure to call him such before I left. He was such a jerk that he told me I was yelling too loud at the Auburn game last year IN THE FIRST HALF!!!!

Congrats to you though David. I hope you continue to succeed regardless of my personal feeling about you dad.

You are right, Joey. David Andrews and Barrett Jones- two private school kids who should not be in the starting lineup of an SEC school. Such is the thinking process, if you can call it that, of a poster who plays the role of a Bama fan.

Dwagturds just don’t seem to get it. UGA is never going to be the BCS champion while Mark Richt is in Athens. Only the very top coaches ever win at that level, not 3rd rate wannabes like Richt, whose biggest concern is the fat paycheck he collects every month.

I saw MANY negative comments about our line (Especially Andrews and Theus) early in the year on these blogs. I posted several times that it takes time for an offensive line to gel and it does. Apparently we have really good linemen because this line is better than last year with the high draft choices playing. Well earned respect young Mr. Andrews.

Next year,David will be @305-310. At 6′2″, that’s perfect for a center. Tough, with a low center of gravity. He will lead our line for years to come…

Thanks Chip, for taking the time to respond. My point was that the way it’s worded “only one sack” does not take into account that Murray was tackled behind the line with no intentions of having to run, (even though he might have tried to at the last second).

But yes, good game for the line.

You must be kidding! Coach Richt is the one SEC coach who cares little about money. He is always perfectly happy with his salary, and continues to be a coach with integrity, which is more than I can say about many of them. He cares so much about his staff salaries being too low that he gave each a bonus out of his own pocket last year not knowing NCAA rules prohibit doing that. That is one rule I don’t agree with since a man should be allowed to do what he wants with his own money.

Life is Lonely ! When you date much older or much younger people, you have probably had to navigate the age gap. Whenever it becomes painfully obvious that you two are from totally different generations, or have polar opposite outlooks on life. How do you hand the difference in age?

It is very common that many Young Women are attracted to 40 Plus Older Men; coz Older Men are usually more Stable and Mature. If you want to make your life more adventurous, I would encourage you to take a try on AgeGapMatch.com .This Is Where Things Start To Get Better. where you can meet plenty of classy, intelligent, and adventurous girls who like 40 Plus Older Mature Men. Date a Younger Woman and feel Young again. It’s worthy a try.

I just said, good job from the oline, overall.

But don’t fool yourself, if Murray is TFL, there was no decision to run made.
