Did not see this posted anywhere and sorry if its a dupe. but it looks like Mr. Bradley is not singing Paul Johnson praises any longer.
Paul Johnson’s offense isn’t hurting Tech, but his approach is ¬Ľ Comment Page 2 | Mark Bradley
Here is a valuable lesson a mentor at my old job told me: When looking at an acquisition with problems, what is the common denominator of all those problems?
I'm not saying CPJ is the common denominator yet...but if we're still having this conversation next year (wait till next year!!!), well...
I don't visit the AJC much anymore because of this: If you'll notice, half the screen space is devoted to ads. They write every article and entitle it as such in a way that they'll get a lot of clicks to generate ad revenue. From a news perspective, that sucks. For instance --- the article title prior to click through is this: Bradley: Johnson hurting Jackets. As a tech fan, you're like "What the hell?" When you click through, the article of the title changes to: Paul Johnsonís offense isnít hurting Tech, but his approach is
It pains me to write this, but Heather Dinich > Mark Bradley. F the AJC.

Johnson's offense is like a basketball player who can score a lot of points but in crucial times and against tough teams he doesn't produce. Paul Johnson's offense is the Joe Johnson of college football. Lots of yards and points against lousy teams. Not good at crunch time and against the teams with talent.
Ha --- so in other words, he's the new Paul Hewitt.
If you have the players you can hit the crunch time plays, like the Wake Forest example in Bradley's article. We don't have a Nesbitt right now, so we're not going to hit these, which sucks. Will we have one ever again under Johnson? End of season spoiler alert: Alabama wins it all. I don't care if you had a 64 team football playoff this year, Alabama wins it all.
Where Bradley got the "after considerable" lobbying from Nesbitt, Johnson went for the TD against Wake. As related at the time, and printed by the AJC, Nesbitt said to Johnson at the sideline, "We can get this," and Johnson replied, "I know you can, and we're going to." Hardly considerable even by AJC measures.
What you should really be questioning is if we have the talent at B-back. We have no Dwyer or Anthony Allen to produce up the middle. We have Sims, who is passable on a good day, and Laskey, who has exceeded his TWO-STAR expectations but still doesn't have the raw talent to pass muster overall.
B-back is the position of real concern. We have the talent at QB waiting in the wings. Vad Lee may even turn out to be better than Nesbitt, as he certainly seems to have more potential. But where on the roster do we find the next Dwyer?
