ATHENS - Last year at this time, Aaron Murray was in a fierce battle for the starting quarterback job at Georgia. One successful freshman year later, his main spring goal is relatively minor: To improve his footwork.
Long term, however, Murray’s aim is high.
Statistically, Murray did everything in 2010 to lock down the job. But eventually, Murray knows he’ll be judged at Georgia by whether the team wins -- which it did less than half the time in his first season as a starter.
“I think the (success of) quarterbacks aren’t determined by touchdowns or interceptions … the greatness of them is how many championships they win,” Murray said. “You look at guys like Dan Marino compared to Tom Brady, (Marino’s) one of the best quarterbacks of all time, but no rings. All that matters is how many championships you’ve got. That’s all I care about.”
