Default Are we underestimating Connor Shaw?

JDStud6 posted this vid, and If you listen to you can see how far we have come.

Are we all underestimating Connor Shaw? I know Dylan has played great, and will play, but this guy Shaw. What are we doing here, we behind him or both, or are we underestimating one of the greats. I love Clowney, as you all know, but check this out.



Listen to it, its about 10 minutes, but Shaw stands out to me like a soldier on the field bout to do battle. This deserves it's own thread in my opinion. Shaw going to be a beast this year, the beast mode inventor is making a new shirt.

Someone that loves football as much as him, is going to completely leave it on the field his senior year. He knows he may not get a chance at the next level after this year. COuld be last season of playing football.

Shaw is all heart, and when healthy can make ALL the throws.

My only complaint with him is that he holds on too long, he needs to anticipate people coming open and throw to that spot. If he starts to do that he'll be unstoppable.

Default Re: Are we underestimating Connor Shaw?

We're not underestimating Connor one bit, we all know his ability and giving 110% each and very play. it's the media that underestimates Connor because he hasn't won 3 NC in his tenure, won a Heisman his freshman season, or been the starting QB the last four years he was at SC.

Shaw disintegrated when we needed him the most last year, against LSU and UF. He's gotta be battle hardened.

I disagree here...in my opinion the defense let us down against LSU and it was special teams against Florida that put us in the spot we were in...Yes, Shaw fumbled once early, but a fumble on a punt and a kickoff return set UF up inside the 20 for their second and third scores of the game.

He definitely didn't play his best (9-20 for 76 yds and a fumble). But I wouldn't say that he disintegrated, more like everyone disintegrated.

And in the LSU game, they possessed the ball for 11 more minutes than us, ran almost 20 plays more, and were 11-19 on third down, our defense needed to get off the field and we couldn't.

The UF game was definitely an abomination, and it's the one game from last year that every player probably wishes they could erase from their memory. I would definitely say that Shaw put forth an admirable effort in the LSU game to keep the score as close as it was, given the circumstances (Death Valley at night, time of possession, LSU 11-19 on third down).

Default Re: Are we underestimating Connor Shaw?

LSU dominated our line. But we were still in position to win the game. Then shaw threw the int.

The first play of the game he fumbled on our five yard line. Wtf? Lol. He also missed a couple wide open throws down the sideline that would have been sure TDs. If he hits those which is inexcusable to miss them and not fumble on the first play, then that's 14 points for us and -7 for them.

Buuuut none of that even really matters now. I'm sure that he will have a better season this year. And if he struggles spurrier won't wait to pull him.

I'm not sure about this. Almost every deep pass he throws "Flutters" up there for a bit forcing the receiver to take the ball over the defender. He needs another 10-15 yards on the ball to consistently hit those kind of targets.

If we have two or three people who can burn defenses down the sidelines and up the middle with relative ease, how airtight can Shaw's starting job be? I mean those are points if we can connect.

You could also make the same argument for both Ace and Byrd's fumbles, say we score on those two possessions that's +14 for us and -14 for them...28 point swing.

But you're 100% correct with the part I bolded, I can't wait for this coming year.

3+ weeks!

Default Re: Are we underestimating Connor Shaw?

Connor Shaw has that unfortunate title as "underestimated" because he didnt go to uga or bama, or lsu, or fla. He has proven to be THE TOUGHEST Gamecock of late, and he hasnt gotten any real respect for the fact that he played with a broken shoulder blade, or a hurt foot for most of the season. So, if anyone is underestimating him, its the media... In my eyes, he is the best thing going. He's among the top in accuracy, TD's and wins, but again, because he is a Gamecock, to the media, he is underestimated... Not the case in my eyes.

Default Re: Are we underestimating Connor Shaw?

Both QBs continue to improve as they mature. Both QBs should be more heady this season.
I don't think anybody missed Connor's fine passes in the Outback Bowl but equally true I don't think anybody can doubt that DT can run also.

I get excited everytime a different QB comes in the game because fireworks always ensues. Defenses flipout at our two QBs.
