I'm enjoying watching this develop and will be elated if Connor winds up exceeding most's expectations. But they also can come along and cut him at anytime. You never know with that league.

Grossman is gone now unless they signed him again. Think they released him a few days ago didn't they?

Question: what exactly does a backup QB do on an NFL practice team? I figure that it can't be like a scout team in college football because they don't have enough players unless we count funny and everyone goes both ways.

Well, Hoyer is making Pettine look like a genius. 4/11, 57 yards, 2 sacks.

Default Re: Connor Shaw Browns

Like I said in an earlier post, Hoyer was in a freaking zone last year before he got hurt. That's why his play was so disappointing in the preseason.

Pettine should have run the no-huddle before they were down by 24 at the half, though.

The Browns were a solid team on both sides of the ball in the second half.

Crowell was the RB that scored in less than a minute while Connor was QB in the last preseason game. He scored a TD today and Connor helped him make the team. You also have to think Connor got to throw to Miles Austin after they signed him to help get him up to speed.

The Browns should have stuck with the running game on their next to last position. Oh well.

Hoyer played awesome without doing the "crazy legs" stuff that JF does.

I'm pretty sure the guys on the bottom of the 53 man roster mix in with the practice squad guys to give the starters a look.

He's on the Brown's practice squad but he is essentially their third string QB. The only two active QBs they have are Hoyer and Manziel. All things considered, he ended up in a pretty good spot. I think he'll be on the sidelines on Sunday before the season is over.

General consensus is that Connor is stuck on the practice squad and may be a backup prospect next year or later. It is believed that they would bring back Grossman this year if Hoyer or Manziel were injured.

I think Connor is insurance to run the Manziel package in case Hoyer goes down.

I disagree. Rex looked so out of shape during the preseason. There is no way he'd be able to play football halfway through the season. Maybe I'm wrong and he's working out somewhere right now. But he looked so bad I just can't see it. Sure he knows the offense but he still needs to be physically able to perform. I don't think he would be able to. It would be one thing if they had kept him on and helped him get into shape.

Default Re: Connor Shaw Browns

Hoyer ran Manziel's plays pretty good in the second half of the Pittsburgh game last week, without the "crazy legs" running/scrambling plays.

Tomlin's defense didn't have an answer for it and they would have beat the Steelers if they had used it throughout the entire game.

I remember thinking at the time that Connor could run those plays better than Grossman if he had to play on short notice. Many feel that Grossman was just brought in to help JF with more conventional QB stuff.

I wonder whose call it was to change the second half game plan, Pettine's or someone else's? The Browns' strategy seems to change with the direction of the wind up there and Pettine has made a habit of reversing himself a lot.

It makes you think he has a more conventional play-calling strategy in mind that conflicts with those in the front office who spent the money on JF. I think they would give Connor a shot at it first before they re-signed Grossman if the strategy is more hurry-up than pocket-passing.
