Preseason hype abated, Georgia QB mess not so hot after all

At the start of the season, all the talk was focused at the quarterback position where nobody was sure who would start for the Georgia Bulldogs. Now four games in the No. 7 Bulldogs(4-0, 2-0 in SEC) are one of a handful of teams to have yet to throw an interception and have perhaps the most reliable starter at quarterback in the SEC, and definitely in the East Division at least.

As recently as one month ago, QB Greyson Lambert, a graduate transfer from Virginia, was named the starter in Athens. Since then the quarterback has taken the SEC league lead in completion percentage and QB rating, and has proven to be exactly what the Bulldogs need at the position.

After all the doubt in Athens heading into the season, SEC teams Alabama, South Carolina, Florida and Auburn have all struggled to find an answer at the quarterback position while Georgia has had a smooth transition through the first month of the season.

It remains to be seen if Lambert can continue his no interception streak against a top-tier defense next week against Alabama.
