really????? no offense to you or anyone else specifically, because i was a little pissed when i wrote this for another thread. but i think the over all point is the important thing, so here is something i posted in another thread, that i think is fitting to re-post here:

"here we have a hall of fame coach, who not only actually played qb, but won the heisman doing it, and coached other heisman qb's while winning a national championship. he says connor is the starting qb, because connor gives us the best chance to win, has done it time and time again against great defenses and has a 15-3 career record as a starter. and just to put an extra foot up the ass of this ridiculous push for dylan over him, connor has a way better qb rating (even though he played against much harder defenses) and a much, much better completion percentage. hell, dylan, while playing against terrible defenses, barely has completed 50% percent of his passes.
with all of that said, and in contrast to a hall of fame coach, and all of those accolades, the brilliant internet sports board dweebs, think they know better, and want to claim thompson the better qb and the starter.
wow! there are sheep that can out-wit some of you!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

all im sayin bout dylan...

Justice dropped 2 great passes

Dylan threw 4 passes to NJones that were 1 ft too low and were ruled incomplete based on hitting the ground. He can fix the issue of throwing the ball a lil too low in curl routes. this isnt a big problem.

If he can fix these issues above... he would have had a hell of a game

Yep, starter doesn't do much to lose many games but the backup just wins

Default Re: Shaw or Thompson

Here is my take.

The reason we beat Clemson so convincingly was the amount of plays we had in the second half versus Clemson. Clemson's defense had to be on the field for considerably more time, wearing them down and making it easier on our offense. The reason for this is Tahj Boyd and Clemson's offense contantly seeking out the homerun.

If your team's offense scores in less than 3 minutes, that just puts your defense back on the field making their job harder. If you can sustain a drive, and inch your way down the field this has a tremendous impact on the game and makes sure that your defense is thouroughly rested.

Connor Shaw is a better quarterback at sustaining long drives consistently, due to his legs. I am going with Shaw.

That impresses me a lot. Gives the routes a little time to develop, then steps right up into the face of the gnarly trenches and delivers downfield. True QB.

Well that wasn't very nice. Excuse me for thinking that the guy with the best arm, the best vision, the best height, and adequate athleticism would make the best starting quarterback. Our offense with Dylan runs so much more beautifully. It's actually spurrier's offense, not some Mangus-hyped hybrid where there is no flow. 119 yards for ace, 7 catches for Bruce, 310 yards through the air on the road, nick jones actually making an appearance. But don't listen to me, Baah Baah, I'm about as useful as a sheep. (By the way, I've been for thompson ever since ecu. I rejoiced when I found out he'd be starting).

Aren;t LSU and Florida good teams?

Dylan hasn't beaten them, neither has Shaw, but he has beaten the teams he has been asked to play against.

and we will never know what he can do against a great D until we start him. Considering we only face 2-3 of those a year... thats difficult.

Nice to have a backup that can not be referred to as "green" anymore. Thompson looks more and more comfortable in the pocket with every appearance. He looks more at ease going through his progrssions than Shaw, BUT, at the end of the day it should be Connor. Why? Because I don't attend practices and that is who SOS has picked every game when healthy and that's good enough for me.

Do you mean this year when he had zero reps in practice and after we had spotted them 21 points from turnovers initiated by our 'starting' QB?

Nah, I mean when he went up against an SEC defense, one of the best in the country, and what he'll most likely see week in and week out? Not a pansy ass ACC club

So, you are saying that he played Florida sometime other than this season? I don't recall that...
