Default Shaw Best QB Ever

I have been saying all season that Shaw has become one of the best QB's we have ever had. I am thoroughly impressed with all aspects of his game. His touch on the short passes is there. How many times has he hit MD in stride on those swing passes ( we have never had a qb do that that I can recall). Where he is impressing me the most is the long ball. He is putting those deep throws on the money. He throws a beautiful, confident, catchable ball. His completion percentage and TD/int ratio is lights out.

His running ability adds a dimension to our offense that makes us hard to stop. How many times has he scrambled on third and long to pick up a crucial first down? Yesterday I think he picked up a third and 17 when the game was still close. That will brake a defense's back as it did yesterday. He is a defensive coordinator's nightmare.

I don't understand why isn't getting the national media attention but I think that if we can win out and make it to seccg or bcs game, he deserves to be in the Heisman running (deserves to be doesn't mean he will be). It is true that we have a lot of weapons and a pretty solid O line this year. A good QB will figure out a way to utilize them. Overall the guy is a baller and we need to appreciate what we have, while we have it.

Long time USC Fan, he has been a winner and may be the best qb. Needs more credit in the press.
He has earned our respect.

fwiw, Garcia hit Latti in stride on the swing passes consistently. (Note I said consistently, not 100%)

He undrethrew long passes for a long time and was too quick to tuck and run for a long time. But, the kid has done what others before him have not, he has taken the good coaching from SOS and Mangus and improved tremendously. That long td pass he dropped in to byrd in stride was a thing of beauty and that option pitch he slung in front of Davis running up the left in the first half was perfect. He was a freakin surgeon yesterday executing the plays we were baffling Arky with.

I enjoy hearing Todd and Tommy talk about Connor in the "best ever" terms. Remember those dudes were pretty damn good Gamecock QB's themselves.

Plus I have met Connor and found him to be intelligent and likeable. Definitely happy this young man is a Gamecock and really enjoying watching how he's progressed as a senior.

I think I read he is second behind Ellis for Wins (i think he needs 3 more to pass Todd) and 4 TD passes away from Garcia. I think he can get both, so thats pretty high up there.

What's Shaw's record as a starter, 19-4? Are any other USC QB's close to that kind of winning % or total wins? If Shaw wins out, I'll personally consider him the greatest USC QB of all time, regardless of other stats.

I hope SOS sticks around long for our other Connor to develop similarly. I'm having fun watching this offense when they are on, hopefully we can pull this off against a stronger D. We made a ton of mistakes and still got 50. I wanna see less mistakes and 40 against UF.

11 wins this year and the Cap 1 bowl victory, there is a good argument for it. A BCS Bowl bid, OR a SEC championship would seal it.

I've felt that Shaw has been underrated for quite some time; he's starting to get some respect in the media, which is gratifying to see. We are blessed to have Thompson in the mix, too, plus several other guys waiting in the wings. We have an embarrassment of riches at QB!

Also, I love how Shaw and Thompson support each other. They truly want to see the other do great things, which is how it should be.

Default Re: Shaw Best QB Ever

Couple of practice reports I posted in 2010 had the statement in them
That "Shaw is the future of this program". I posted here on this board
in the fall of 2010 (more than once) that Connor Shaw gave me flashbacks
to watching Jeff Grantz play in the 70s. That statement held a lot of
weight with me personally because I still consider Jeff Grantz and John
Roche to be the two best all round athletes I've ever seen in Gamecock
uniforms.
As a note...Connor Shaw just tied Todd Ellis' mark for most wins as a
starting QB in the history of this program. I'm sure everyone has heard this
by now BUT, no one is saying much about the fact that Todd Ellis started
from day one as a True Freshman QB here at USC, and with the exception
of the few games he missed due to the knee injury, he started four seasons
with the Gamecocks. ... Connor Shaw has only been the starting QB
for (what will be at the end of this season barring injury), 2 and 1/2
seasons. THAT SAYS A LOT ABOUT THE ABILITY OF THIS YOUNG MAN
TO LEAD OUR OFFENSE !!
Not only will he break Todd's record by several games, but he will have
done it with almost a full 1 1/2 seasons less than Ellis played during his
time as the QB here.

For the record, I still consider Jeff Grantz to be the greatest USC QB
I've ever seen in my lifetime, but Connor Shaw is a close second (A
VERY CLOSE SECOND) in my book. Connor deserves more credit
nationally for what he's doing with this offense the past couple of
seasons, but to be honest, I'm glad he isn't. After seeing the way the
national media has treated Jadeveon this season after basically building
him into a football god in the offseason has me glad that Connor is
"quietly" going about becoming the best QB in our program's history.
AND, I'm positive that the way Connor approaches the game from a
personal level, he'd rather have it this way as well. The MAN is a
good QB, but he's an exceptional young man with a bright future ahead
of him no matter what direction that future leads him. I'm just glad that
he came to South Carolina to play football, and I'm glad I was witness
to his accomplishments here.

Alright I will say that Shaw has become the QB I have wanted to see. I have been very critical of Shaw this year as well as last. Fast forward into the arky game and now I see him as a great QB. The last two games he has become very confident in his O-line and is trusting them. Shaw needs to get more attention for his play, but as long as he keeps winning I don't care if the analyst take notice. I know Spurrier will continue to get his stock higher and as long as Spurrier can continue to call games like he did against arky we will be fine from here on out.

Also I have noticed that Shaw isn't dependent on one or two receivers. He is throwing the ball to everybody. This is a Spurrier Offense and when its clicking it's a beautiful thing.

I'm just curious why Shaw is so open to criticism when other players are exempt from it? Anything positive about him is immediately followed by something someone doesn't like but that's okay. Certain other players have something negative said and all of a sudden they're not "fans".

The offense has really come together. From Shaw progressing to MD28 running like an All-American and our OL flat out performing better than any line during Spurrier's tenure. We could really have something special this year if the defense continues to develop. Even the Special Teams seemed to find their way yesterday with Cooper looking like a natural and Fry kicking like he's a fifth year senior.
