Everyone mark this one down and remember it for all time. You are witness to the logic of a true genius, folks.

All must gaze upon it in wide-eyed wonder and then sadly resign themselves to the fact that they will never in their lives post something so profound and true.

LMAO!

Default Re: Connor Shaw Browns

Even if The Pope himself walked onto the Browns and had good practices, he wouldn't get playing time because of the moneyball thing that is going on with the Manziel and the Browns.

The more successful Shaw is, the more it would look like the Browns' front office screwed up by getting Manziel. Everybody gets what's going on up there.

I actually took an interest in the Browns last season when they were playing so well with Hoyer at QB. You get tired of the same old Patriots/Steelers/Broncos/Ravens show sometimes. It seemed like they were going to have a decent shot in the playoffs until he went down with the ACL injury.

Hoyer is having to work his way back from an ACL injury and it seems like the whole world wants Manziel to take his job at the same time. The Browns biggest problem is the QB controversy has screwed both their heads up and Hoyer isn't playing like he did last year. He was in a zone until he got hurt. Hoyer playing badly is actually the Browns biggest problem now.

Even if Shaw had a bad training camp, he got up on the curve fast enough to play well against the Redskins.

The less Connor plays, the more it makes people wonder what he's capable of and that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Every time the media goes nuts over a dual-threat QB, I think back to Kordell Stewart, aka "Slash". Eventually people figured out how to defend and neutralize him. Shaw has more game experience, a degree, and the drive to learn just like the other undrafted players mentioned above.

Why were Warren Moon and Kurt Warner not drafted? Your logic is bad, and you should feel bad.

The Browns haven't had a QB start every game in a season in 14 years.

Don't be ridiculous. The Pope would have to play college ball first. I imagine he still has 4 years of eligibility left, and I'm assuming ND would take him, so if he gets lucky in the draft the Browns will have rotated thorough 3 or 4 more QB's and would draft him.

Shaw choose to go there. He knew what he was getting in to. CLE may have been his only option, who knows.

I'm guessing Connor was the only one of the flight from Columbia to Cleveland. That should have told him something.

Its like a concert when the opening band (Shaw) puts on a better show than the headliner (Manziel). I don't follow the NFL like I used to, but it amazes me the circus that many teams have become (Cleveland Clowns the worst).

Actually Cleveland was signing him to an UDFA contract as they were making their last pick as the story goes. No one else got the chance really.

Probably will hear of Shaw's release sometime today.

Doubt very seriously they will keep 4 QBs on the roster, ESPECIALLY with the signing of Grossman...someone who know's Shanahan's offense and has NFL experience.
