What more needs to be said at this point about Daniels and his performance on Saturday night? It was statistically the best performance a quarterback has had since Kirby Smart took over as the head coach.

Stylistically, it may have been even more fun to watch and enjoy Daniels cook. He consistently hit on downfield throws for big gains all night. Both of his second-half touchdown passes traveled over 40 yards in the air before being caught by Jermaine Burton and Kearis Jackson.

This was Daniels’ first action of the season and the first competitive snaps he’s taken since Aug. 31 of 2019. That wasn’t lost on him after the game.

“It feels really good, this is the first time I’ve taken a (game) snap since Aug. 31, 2019, in another part of the country,” Daniels said. “I really couldn’t be happier and more appreciative to Coach Smart Coach (Todd) Monken and the team.”

Yes, this was an undermanned Mississippi State team and it was just a single game. But if Daniels is able to consistently make the throws he made on Saturday and hit the lay-ups as Smart calls them, it solves a lot of the issues we’ve seen plague the Georgia offense since the 2019 season.
