Do you honestly believe Washington had their best players in their with Johnny in the first half of the 4th quarter is my question. This comparison is a lot closer than most people would like to believe.
FINALLY someone mentions he fact that godson caught a pass from Manziel IN THE FOURTH QUARTER.

So all this talk about connor going against weak competition, face the facts that some of JFF's few completions came throwing to 1st string all pro, against redskins 3rd and 4th.

Awesome to see that the Shaw critics showed back up and spouted more of the same. If you didn't notice a composed, sharper, and stronger Shaw then you clearly didn't watch the game. He threw some lasers last night. Yes, lasers as in fast a to b line drives.

Ask the Atlanta Braves how playing someone less talented because you paid them too much worked out. How many games did Uggla cost the braves?

Incompletions on conversions do not count.

This is quite impressive. What I'm seeing as impressive are things that are totally independent of the level of competition he was playing against. Mainly the sharpness and accuracy of his passes. Throwing on the run? No problem. He had several that were put right on the money while he was on the run. Quick release? Check. He did a good job of running to buy time when needed (with accurate passes as mentioned above) but also had a quick release when necessary, again with accuracy. And, frankly, the Hail Mary pass was right in the hands of a receiver but he didn't come down with it. I can't imagine what a coach could find to not like about his performance.

Default Re: Connor Shaw Browns

Ok a few things to get straight here. Connor threw a Hail Mary and yes it did hit a Browns Player first before it bounced off two people and another caught it, but it is not like he threw it on a frozen rope to a guy in stride. The Browns player was able to see the ball coming in like a punt and adjust his location to it.

Second, for all those willing to burn JFF at the stake, get real folks... It was a middle finger... Most of you will give that to someone in traffic on the way to work this week and it won't mean shit...

Was it the best decision? No, walking away in hindsight would have been better, but is that any worse than the F-bombs most of those guys throw out after almost every play and the getting up in someone's face and taunting that some guys do?

Come on guys put this in perspective. If the title of an article read "random guy gives someone the finger and walked off" would it be newsworthy? No...

It's still just the way professional sports works. The Braves are still playing BJ Upton aren't they?

While it was exciting, I don't think anyone is really talking about the Hail Mary being impressive as far as Shaw is concerned, but instead the plays leading up to it.

Agree, the excitement is related to him coming in, being poised and in control, making good throws and not looking like this was his first game action. He appeared to be a solid leader and took advantage of the opportunity. He made solid throws and wasn't bouncing them, under throwing, or throwing behind receivers. Disregard the Hail Mary, but he looked more experienced than the other two in the way he carried himself, led his teammates and took control of the field. Played like the Connor we know.
