Default Shaw Interview: SB Nation - Browns

Repost (Didn't see it until after I posted this)

Good interview of Connor. The fans have high regard for him per the comments.

Also according to all accounts, he is a solid 3rd now. More than likely pushing Thigpen to practice squad.

Sadly, as shown by the following stories/links, Manzel's father is concerned that his son is one step away from trouble with the law, while Connor heads home to Columbia to master the Brown's playbook:

You probably dint think Russell Wilson would either did you? Probably didn't thin Shaw would be a great QB for us when he took over either? I don't need to say anymore. Hope the browns give him a shot. I believe he can be a productive starter for years.

Huh? You can't compare Russell Wilson and Connor Shaw. Wilson was 10x the passer Shaw was in college. Blame it on the system if you want, but Wilson through for over 3,000 yards every year he started.

I thought Russell Wilson was highly underdrafted and a steal in the 3rd round. Dude had one of the best lasers in college football. Only thing he lacked at QB position was height. If he was 3" taller, he would have been a sure Top 5 pick in any draft.

10x? That is a little exaggerative no?

I don't recall this love for Russell from the people that do this for a job.

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/eye-on-...12-draft-class

Russell and Shaw have similar skill sets physically. Shaw looking to throw first and not take hits will be key going forward.

If RW hadn't of had that incredible Sr season at Wisky, he could have easily been an UDFA like Connor.
Playing smart and not losing games are two attributes that both QBs share. It that has served them and the teams they've played on well.

It's difficult to put a quantitative number on how much better one is at passing than another. I would agree with cola though, RW is a significantly better passer than Shaw. Other skills may be on par, but throwing, not even close... especially the deep ball. Not a good comparison IMO.

Most definitely. He needs to be a big time professional caliber player. Tajh Boyd is a good example of what you are looking for if I'm not mistaken.

So this guy doesn't believe in Shaw, that means he believes in Tajh Boyd?

Manziel likely to begin NFL
career as Johnny Backup

Cleveland's first full-squad training camp practice is Saturday morning at the team's headquarters in Berea.


Quote:
But even if Hoyer becomes the starter and wins like he did last season, it wouldn't necessarily preclude Manziel from playing as a rookie. I wouldn't rule out the possibility of Shanahan featuring Manziel in certain packages.

And remember, the backup always seems to find himself in the lineup in Cleveland. No Browns quarterback has started all 16 regular-season games since Tim Couch in 2001.

Which is why the competition between veteran Tyler Thigpen and undrafted rookie Connor Shaw for the No. 3 quarterback job could be more important than anyone wants to admit. As Pat Shurmur would say, "I saw some eyes roll." Still, the Browns have started three quarterbacks in two of the past four seasons, so it does matter.

In the under card featuring Thigpen and Shaw, I'll go with the rookie because of the upside he showed in spring practices and because Thigpen was out of football last season.

In the main event pitting Hoyer against Manziel, I'll stick with the veteran and expect the rookie to surface at some point during the upcoming season.

Default Re: Shaw Interview: SB Nation - Browns

From WFNY (Waiting For Next Year, lol!):

Quote:
– Lost in the Hoyer/Manziel battle is the fact that there are two other quarterbacks on the roster. Conner Shaw is the rookie from South Carolina battling Tyler Thigpen. Thigpen has a ton of experience on Shaw, and was in Buffalo with Mike Pettine. There was one play in particular that showed Shaw’s inexperience reading an NFL defense. He has a wide receiver coming open deep across the middle, but rushed the ball to the sideline for an incompletion.
Shaw has uphill battle for opportunities. Hope he gets a decent shot in preseason games.
