Did look like he picked up where he left off and the NFL offense didn't make much difference to how he played. I wonder if playing at USC did a better job of prepping him for the NFL than most imagined?
He sure did look confident out there.

Manziel will go the way of Tebow.

Shaw's leadership and maturity will win out eventually.

You have to feel that Mike Pettine is hip to that and Shaw is going to be his rabbit's foot for a while.

ESPN didn't even show Shaw's TD in their highlights of the game and that tells you about the 3-ring circus that's going on in Cleveland right now.

ESPN will ignore Connor for a while because it will take away from the whole JF thing that the media is hoping will carry over into the NFL.

The Browns fans also get it and will gravitate to Connor pretty quickly if he is given a fair chance to execute on the field. You also have to think that they would have kicked the extra point in a regular season game and Connor would have gotten the team in a position for the win either in regulation or OT.

Missleading article and post. All hypothetical... JFF is #2 on the depth chart and I think it isn't a bad thing for him.
Let Hoyre go in and get his head caved in by the Steelers, Saints, and Ravens. After the Bye week, let JFF slide on in. Gonna be tough for him, he is a rookie afterall, but he will be the teams starter at some point this year.

Default Re: Connor Shaw Browns

The media over-hyped college football last season and it caused some players to come out for the draft too soon.

Manziel had an awesome bowl game against Duke, but he declared too early.

He should have stayed at A&M and declared for the draft with a record closer to Shaw's.

If Shaw wins the starter's job, the media story won't be Connor vs. JF.

Instead it will be the resurrection of the Browns franchise and JF will be left in the dust.

I like what Nate Burleson had to say about Connor.


http://www.cleveland.com/browns/inde...ny_manzie.html


Burleson said the Browns are strong overall at quarterback, including Rex Grossman and rookie Connor Shaw, "who looked like Peyton Manning the other night. We're okay at the quarterback position. -article

(12 year Vet Nate) Burleson said the Browns are strong overall at quarterback, including Rex Grossman and rookie Connor Shaw, "who looked like Peyton Manning the other night. We're okay at the quarterback position. I don't have a bias who's throwing the ball. As long as the ball gets to where it is and that guy in the huddle is confident, I'm good with the decision.''

Now that's a circus...at least Connor has been in something like that before. This may turn out to be a good thing for Connor.

Whoever wrote that article makes several bad mistakes honestly. I appreciate that his name is getting out to people who know little about sports, but Dallas Texans and 2 time Heisman winning Johnny Manziel mean the B sports writers did this.
