Ten Possible Replacements for Willie Martinez

Willie Martinez was named Georgia's defensive coordinator in 2005 and for three years his defense performed at a high level.

In 2005, Georgia ranked No. 7 against the pass, No. 18 in total defense, No. 8 in scoring defense and No. 15 in interceptions.

In 2006, Georgia ranked No. 5 against the pass, No. 8 in total defense, No. 20 in scoring defense and No. 9 in interceptions.

In 2007, Georgia ranked No. 16 against the run, No. 14 in total defense, No. 18 in scoring defense and No. 8 in sacks.

In 2008, Georgia ranked No. 27 against the run, No. 32 against the pass, No. 22 in total defense, No. 59 in scoring defense, No. 67 in interceptions and No. 72 in sacks.

What happened in 2008? Injuries ravaged the Georgia squad all year long.

Everything would go back to normal in 2009, right? Wrong, it has gotten worse.

So far in 2009, Georgia ranks No. 60 against the run, No. 73 against the pass, No. 68 in total defense, No. 89 in scoring defense, No. 55 in sacks and No. 88 in interceptions.

The time has come to start thinking about the future, and that is what I have begun to do.

The following list is the 10 men I believe can straighten out Georgia's defensive woes. Some are probably untouchable, but we can dream, right?
