Quick Hitters: Sean Jones

With his expertise in frustrating offenses, Jones knew two weeks ago that the Georgia offense was dealing with a difficult task in the LSU Tiger defense.

Sean Jones knows a thing or two about making offenses struggle. He leads the Georgia defense, which is allowing a conference leading 8.5 points per game. With his expertise in frustrating offenses, Jones knew two weeks ago that the Georgia offense was dealing with a difficult task in the LSU Tiger defense.

"LSU was blitzing us and we did not have the answer for it. They kept good pressure on the quarterback," he said.

Jones is right. David Greene took one of the worst beatings that he has taken since being named the starting quarterback in 2001.

But Jones says that just because Georgia's offense struggled to score against LSU does not mean that the offense was all to blame for the lack of points.

"Who says that defenses can't score?" he said. "We, as the defense, are supposed to take advantage of opportunities. We are supposed to score too."

Jones went on to say that the offense has helped the team win games when the defense has struggled.

"Against LSU the offense sort of sputtered a little bit. The offense bails us out some games and we try to bail them out sometimes. If both the offense and defense is clicking at the same time its hard to beat us," said Jones.

But even with the loss, Georgia is still in the thick of several championship races.

"We try to play one play at a time. It's a long season. The loss hurt us be we have to move on. We still control our own destiny," he said.

One thing that Jones said that he would like to see this weekend against Alabama is as much support from the fans as possible.

"We need momentum from our crowd," he said. "Once they get into it, it's hard for the other teams."
