Wink Re: Shaw vs Manziel....

I wonder how many votes Connor Shaw got for Heisman? Connor Mitch has the possibility, but he has not played a single down of college football.


Clowney for Heisman. Let's give that story legs.

Difference between Shaw and Manziel is that Manziel does not nut up against great defenses, ala Alabama. Shaw does, ala LSU, Florida. I know Manziel lost to LSU and UF also but did not get blown out and had his team in position to win those games. Shaw fumbled on the first play in the UF game and overthrew many wide open receivers that would have went for TD's. Plus, losing composure in the LSU game, throwing a really silly pick that LSU scored on the drive that pretty much put the game away for LSU. Difference is Manziel plays up to his competition and Shaw shrivels up like a egg shell. Against average defenses, Shaw can play great. He can't handle great defenses, Manziel can.

Shaw was injured against both LSU and Florida.....big difference. I have played injured before and it throws everything off. Judge him next season healthy.

You might want to actually look at Manziel's numbers against LSU before hyping how he kept them in the game. 3 picks and 0 TDs is hardly something to brag about.

I somewhat agree here... Shaw was injured all year, and showed great signs of playmaking ability and for those saying manziel has him beat bc of explosiveness and what not.. lets not forget that shaw had an 80 yrd run called back for a flag he was already past and can change a game with his arm and his legs Garnet Glasses or not a healthy Shaw can be the guy to lead the cocks to a ship and hold the heisman if things happen right hell... i bet if we let him try a PAT and he makes it .. that could be his 'heisman moment' who am i kidding Loooooong shot to win it but no less of a good player than johnny foosball

Default Re: Shaw vs Manziel....

If I were the OP, I would forget Manzel. the match-up you should be concerned with is Shaw vs Dylan Thompson for a starting job in 2013. if I was coach, Thompson would be the starter. your players have a little pep to them on the field when he's in the game, that they don't show when shaws in there. if shaw starts over thompson, its because the coaches put to much value on upper classman play. shaw doesn't have half the mechanics that dylan does. he's a short passing scrambler, and thompson is a technical qb who goes through his check downs, and fires the ball with some authority when the play needs to be made. not sitting in the pocket jumping around like a crow for 3 seconds and running. I don't even like carolina, so there is the real deal from someone who doesn't care either way.

Default Re: Shaw vs Manziel....

There were some writers who didnt even think Manziel deserved the Heisman and not because he was a RS Freshman but because they weren't that impressed with what he did. Because of recent winner QBs like Cam and Tebow, if you are a successful running and passing QB on a high profile team, then you have a chance to win the Heisman.

I think we put on garnet glasses the same way any other school's fans would say that have a super human QB. Shaw had a lot of hype coming into the season but also a few question marks (i.e Gamecocks go as far as Shaw will take them, etc). By the numbers, shaw can be as efficient, but he is not as good as Manziel is.

If we look at pure numbers:

YRDS CMP% TD INT QB Rating Rushing Yds

Manziel 3419 68.3 24 8 155.9 1181

Shaw 1732 67.3 15 7 156.9 339

B Miller (OSU) 2039 58.3 15 6 140.5 1271

M Mariota (Ore) 2511 69.9 30 6 165.4 690

While Connor is fast, Manziel is just as fast or maybe faster. Manziel's arm is much stronger, and he looks for open receivers while dodging defensive players. How many big hits did he take this year, almost none because he has the ability to not put himself in a position to get hit. I appreciate your effort, but this is not even close. Here's the really big difference, Manziel's bad game against Florida was his first game, the rest of the games he continued to improve except for LSU. Connor only improved marginally from last year to this year. Bruce led the team in yards with about 500. Many of Connor's passes are to RB or TE that are short, fairly easy passes. Connor can't seem to throw on time and usually doesn't see open receivers down field. Name the best game Shaw has had away from home. We have a great defense and that's why we have been so good the last couple of years. Our offense ranks like 85th in the country this year.

Default Re: Shaw vs Manziel....

Running the ball you maybe could have a argument. Passing the ball no way. Thing is with shaw you have to be careful when looking at stats. A lot of his stats are due to a shit ton of dump off passes to the te and rb. I remember the Missouri game for one. Seemed like 75% of Connors passes were dump offs to Cunningham or Lattimore

Default Re: Shaw vs Manziel....

wow! the most successful qb in the history of the university of south carolina, who has sacrificed of himself to play hurt, with an extremely painful fractured scapula all year, is talked about like this from his schools fans????????????? really???? he had a better qbr, and i think also a better completion percentage than johnny football, while playing HURT! johnny had lsu and florida at home, while we played them on the road with half the team missing most of the week with the flu.
yes, i agree that manziel is more gutzy in throwing downfield, but with that ol, why wouldn't he be? how many freshmen and sophomores did we have on an under-performing ol? now try to follow this. a qb with a very painful fractured scapula and foot, is playing behind a porous ol, who has allowed guys in the backfield after less than two sec's all season long, and you guys wonder why he is run happy? easy to be an armchair qb, isn't it?
the biggest difference between the two is the ol in front of them, and their health. with that good of an ol, and without his injuries, i think connor could have put up similar numbers. i'm not saying connor is as good, but to say they aren't comparable is ridiculous.
