2012 Georgia Football: Offensive line silenced critics against Florida

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

The unit turned in its best performance of the season and appears to be peaking at the right time.

The Georgia offensive line turned in a solid, if underappreciated, effort in last Saturday's win against Florida. Georgia held Florida without a sack and helped running back Todd Gurley gain 118 yards. It was a promising performance for a group that has struggled at times after entering the 2012 season with question marks.

"I thought it was probably one of our best games, considering the opponent and things like that," Georgia center David Andrews told the Macon Telegraph. "We shot ourselves a couple times in the red zone here and there. But we had a good game. We've still got a long way to go to where we want to be."

The performance against Florida stood in sharp contrast to the struggles the offensive line saw against South Carolina and Kentucky. Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray was sacked a combined five times in those two games. Members of the offensive line hope that they've put those troubles behind them.

"It's just starting to click for us," Andrews said. "Unfortunately it's been awhile. But it's starting to click and it shows the potential we do have."

Georgia hosts Ole Miss this Saturday at 3:30. The Bulldogs opened as 17.5 point favorites over the Rebels.
