Jermaine Burton performance against Alabama serves as perfect metaphor for Georgia football offense

Jermaine Burton’s performance against Alabama was his most productive game to date. The freshman wide receiver had a career-high four catches. He caught his first career touchdown. He got behind the defense as well to haul in a 36-yard pass, giving the Georgia offense an explosive play.

But it was also probably a performance Burton would like to forget. At the very least, one he can and wants to improve on.

Alabama wanted to take away Georgia wide receiver Kearis Jackson, and mostly did as he had just two receptions on seven targets. That meant the freshman Burton was going to get more favorable coverages and opportunities.

“They were bracketing the inside guys most of the game,” quarterback Stetson Bennett said. “The reads just took me to Jermaine and I have trust in him. We’re gonna get that connection dialed in on the off week.”
