Just Shaw? Interesting. I agree with your overall point that Spurrier wants QBs to get rid of ball quicker, but this isn't just a Shaw problem. Perception is not always reality.
Dylan was sacked the same amount of times as Shaw last year when you look at sacks per passing attempt for each QB. Shaw was sacked 25 times and Dylan was sacked 13 times. So Dylan gave up 34% of our sacks and he attempted 34% of our passes last year (127 of 355 total pass attempts).
Also, Spurrier just said in his post practice interview that BOTH QBs need to get rid of ball quicker. I didn't hear him say "Shaw needs to get rid of ball quicker."
yes, yes, I know this is the perception everyone has. But it isn't the reality.
And let me be clear that I am not picking on Dylan. I think both QBs need to work on it. But it isn't a "Shaw" problem.
Also, Dylan is a much better runner than people give him credit for.
We seem to want to classify Dylan as one type of QB and Shaw as another and it isn't that black and white.
