So this week was definitely one of the best games we have played this year, considering we actually played a tough opponent. This was a hard one picking out the 4 most important players of the game, but here they are . . .
Greg McElroy- Continuing to prove his abilities, McElroy completed 17 passes for 291 yards and 3 touchdowns. These are some pretty impressive stats against an SEC defense, let's see if he can keep it up during some harder conference games. He has been continually getting better.
Trent Richardson- Wow, can this guy make defenders miss. The statistics do not at all show how well he played this Saturday with 9 carries for 65 yards and a score. He also had 2 receptions for 18 yards. Now by looking at these stats I would not say he was one of the best players, but he touchdown run was phenomal. Watch out for him in the next few years.
Defense/Special Teams- They were the main reason they won this game, holding Arkansas to 7 points was radiculous. They put the needed pressure on the QB to secure a few needed sacks. Javier Arenas did a great job at return man and had 3 loss of yardage tackles in the first half alone.
Other- Well we all know Julio Jones had 2 catches, one of em for a long TD. Marquis Maze had his 80-yard catch which was arguably the best play of the game. So there are definately more players who could have been the best, so if you choose this one as alwasy tell me who the other is.
