Objectivity is not bashing. Bashing is resorting to personal insults that have nothing to do with the sport.

Shaw may be the best QB South Carolina has ever had, and I'm thankful for all he did for the school and city. That doesn't mean he's a good NFL QB though. If he does become a good NFL QB, then I'm glad to be proven wrong and thankful for another South Carolina talent succeeding in the NFL.

Players who are fighting for an NFL roster spot do not play at the level or speed of those who already have roster spots. Hence, why they are fighting for a roster spot.

The bears are idiots if they don't keep Shaw... if they don't someone else will take him.

He handled this like a pro, if they do not keep him it only makes him look better for other teams. I am certain his agent is working behind the scenes on his next job.

Huh?

The guys who already have roster spots sewn up may gear it down a few notches in the preseason, just to save wear and tear.

But the guys who are fighting for a roster spot are going balls to the wall trying to earn a spot. It's not like you think, they aren't bad players, there are just very few positions open on NFL rosters. They're going full speed trying to impress the staff.

On every team most roster spots are already taken. If a team picks you high, it's usually because they envision you filling an open spot. You get picked late or UDFA, there isn't a spot on the roster for you unless the starters are hurt. Otherwise, you may spend a year on the practice squad, then have to fight off the new draft class.

You want to get paid, you have to take advantage of every opportunity. If not, guys are lined up wanting your job.

He seems like a perfect fit with Fox, but I think they'll release him again when that completely worthless bum Dirty Sanchez is ready to return. The new Bears regime seems to be making strategically smart decisions and predictable ones, but the fascination with Sanchez defies both trends.

I was hoping Shaw might end up in Pittsburgh to chase hapless Landry Jones away and eventually hand the Browns a painful loss, but Jones has improved from garbage to not quite garbage, and now with a draft pick spent on an intriguing project in Josh Dobbs, I've given up hope. I believe Shaw can become a solid backup if he can stay healthy somewhere decent.

What wrong with a dirty Sanchez? Some us appreciate the skills it takes to complete one.

Connor is a 50/50 guy for better or worse until he gets a full pre-season under his belt with the Bears.

But, we all saw what he could do last year when he was healthy.

He notches up to #2 if he goes the whole pre-season this year.

He also has to quit learning and compete with the other QBs.

Winning a roster spot is the same thing as winning a game for him at this point. Let it all hang out.

Yep.
Playing well in any preseason game is nothing to sneer at. You're playing for a paycheck at that point. The goal at this point is to stay employed.

Yep, that kind of money goes beyond the "experts" pissing about whether he's an NFL quarterback or not.

The Bears #2 QB is Mitch Trubisky, who they gave a bunch of assets to acquire and they're slowly developing him as their franchise QB.

Mike Glennon is currently the starter.

So, let's just say there's no chance Shaw will be the Bears #2 QB next season unless one of them gets injured or decides Taco Bell is a better career choice.
