Former LSU and NFL quarterback Rohan Davey joins Matt in his weekly segment to preview the SEC Championship Game. Davey was the quarterback the first time LSU went to the championship game in 2001. What is the most important part of preparation for this game?
“The biggest thing is to understand that the spectacle and everything that surrounds it is for the fans. It’s not for you,” Davey said. “The quicker they can keep it as normal as possible the better.”
Davey played for Nick Saban at LSU and went to Super Bowls with Bill Belichick and Tom Brady in the NFL. How did they handle big game weeks to make it feel like just another game?
“We didn’t shy away from who we were facing or what we were facing,” Davey said. “When I was in New England that was it. We never shyed away from the obsticle we were facing. That and self evaluation.”
Why has Georgia struggled so much on offense this year?
“Well I think part of it is you have a defensive minded coach. He hasn’t let go of that mindset yet,” Davey said. “Georgia has too much talent to struggle on offense like they do.”
If Georgia gets rolling can they score with LSU on offense?
“Yes they can. If we don’t get pressure on Fromm it will be a problem regardless of who is out at the wide receiver position,” Davey said. “Personally I think we match up well with Georgia on both sides.”
Are the Bulldogs capable of slowing LSU’s offense?
“Only if Joe makes bad decisions and we can’t protect him,” Davey said. “In my opinion I think Georgia’s front seven is faster from the linebacker position than say an Auburn.”
