People throw around words like everyone and never too much these days.

The overwhelming majority of Gamecock Nation is thankful for Shaw's efforts as a Gamecock and wants to see him be given the opportunity to succeed at the next level. That's it.

Why do people read that sentence and hear "Shaw = NFL Starter?"

Yeah, Shaw was under pressure. It may not have been the first or second team defensive players in there for the Redskins, but Shaw wasn't exactly playing with Allstars either on his side. That argument is crap.

Give Johny a couple years, and he will be a great addition to College Gameday. Maybe he can take Lee Corso's spot.

Yeah. Maybe when he makes his game picks instead of picking the team he thinks will win by putting a mascot head on, he can actually flip off the mascot of the team he picks to lose.

He is the same player minus religious and decent attitude. Which makes it even damn worse.

The silly thing is that Connor wont' be given a shot simply because he was an undrafted QB. I'm not saying Connor is starter material, but the reality is in pro sports teams have an unwritten obligation to play the money. Even if Shaw gave Cleveland the best chance to win, they can't NOT play Hoyer or Manziel. I simply think Shaw's performance earned him the right to simply get a look with the first string. It costs Cleveland nothing to do that.

I just keep seeing highlights and the contrast is crazy. Forget about first string, second string, third string, etc. Look at Johnny's and Connor's passes when they are in the pocket and not under pressure. Manziel's were in the dirt. Connor's were crisp and on the money.

Good points. It doesn't matter who else was playing. He was on the run and gained yards. He was on the run and threw good passes that those terrible receivers were able to catch. He was on the run and moved the chains.

Forget the one hail Mary pass. Even minus that he's thrown for about the same yardage that the other two QBs did in two games.

Good showing Connor. Hope he gets another shot this week and does more of the same. The GREAT thing about Monday night is that a LOT of coaches and GMs were watching Monday night football.

Maybe a few stuck around til the end.

I agree, the throws were the same throws and Connor put them on the money. He also had pressure on every play. I will say that Hoyer threw at least 2-3 balls that were a bit off, but the WR's should have caught. I think Manziel had a couple of drops as well. Cleveland WRs are terrible.

Default Re: Connor Shaw Browns

The biggest difference that showed itself for me was the command they had of where the receivers would be and how they could get the ball there. This is a brand new offense for this team, so basically all the QB's were on the same starting point. Hoyer has more experience from an NFL perspective, but not in this particular offense.

So what you have is basically a tremendous litmus test of three guys who have roughly the same amount of time to grasp the playbook. Where it differs is the amount of reps in practice, which Shaw gets MUCH less of than anyone else. Despite that, just WATCH THE GAME and see how he did.

I don't know if Shaw will ever be an NFL starter, but I think its quite obvious that given the starting point of all three QB's and the progression of each to this point, he has done the best job and taken the opportunities he's been given and made the most of it.

Finally got a chance to see Connor in action, he looked great! Congratulations to Mr. Shaw, hopefully this will get another team to give him a look. The Browns are a disaster, but Connor may come out for the better due to the chance they gave him Monday night.

Nice!

I really like DT a lot. He may not be a CS, but he is a winner as well. And a class act all the way around. He was over at the TAG Bldg the other week with AJ Cann, came by and met some of the Soldiers. Very awesome.
