Default Cool read about Connor versus Manziel

I'm not a Manziel hater, but this nails our dream scenario for Connor's future with the Browns: http://www.fantasyfootballmetrics.co...roversy-begin/

Cleveland Browns fans are for the most part, blue collar and will identify more with Shaw than with Manzel. Kinda reminds me of that "Replacements" movie.

Give that writer a pulitzer prize.

I hope he is right...and I like Johnny Manziel's brashness.

In my opinion, both QBs have true grit.

JM is such a small guy and he excels in a world of giants - all while egging them on and throwing up his money team fingers.

CS is all about his business. Tough as nails and has all the respect of his teammates and all the respect of the warriors he faces.

If I were going to battle, and my life depended on it, I would take CS.

Hopefully in training they'll see Connor is better . Hope Connor gets to start a few games this year and does great.

I would take both.

The difference is that on the day of the battle, I know Connor Shaw would be there, early, and with all his gear. I would be nervous about Johnny Manziel right up until I see him cresting the hill, but once I see him, I know that it is go time. I would not even care if Johnny Manziel is a bit hungover with hickies and missing a boot. I know that guy will ride into battle fearlessly and be the second coming of General Nathan Bedford Forrest - part of what makes him legendary is his craziness and confidence, but he was also damned good at his profession. Connor Shaw is more the General Cullen Battle - worked his ass off and prepared like Batman.

I read that crap... Cleveland... or the "Mistake by the Lake" does not deserve Shaw. I wish he had signed elsewhere. The Browns really.. Didn't their last team slip out of town one night

Those guys are typical Brown fans idiots. When Manziel is out hurt and Shaw is making plays, they will all act like they knew from day 1 he'd be a stud.

I wouldn't go so far as that, the Browns sold 2300 season tickets the day after Manzel was drafted vs a normal 50. Connor just needs to be ready when his opportunity comes and it will come.

Default Re: Cool read about Connor versus Manziel

Before we all lay down at Connor's feet, it's important to remember that Manziel was a better college QB, especially during his Heisman season. He screwed the pooch last year and that is what hurt his draft status. By rights, he still should have been the higher draft choice and Shaw will most certainly be behind him on the depth chart.

That said, Shaw has better grit, character, and possibly a game that is better suited than Manziel to the NFL. I can't wait to see Connor get a shot in the pre-season. I might become a Browns fan!

I find it hilarious that they think any Gamecock fan that praises Shaw is a 'homer' that never watched Manzel play. He's a gifted player, and one of the most creative QBs I've seen, but he's at his best when he's on the run. He will not last in the NFL playing like that. Shaw has more upside.
