Default Clowney's comments about Shaw

I was really impressed by what Clowney had to say about Shaw after the game. I love the way this team respects each other and leaves it all out on the field for each other!! Keep that attitude up and it will be a great end to the season. GO COCKS!!

'"That's what great players do, and Connor's a great player. I hope everybody knows that," said Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina's star defensive end. "He put this team on his back tonight."'

' "Connor wasn't going to let us lose that game, plain and simple," Clowney said. "We rallied around him, and he rallied around us. A lot of people might have thought we were done after we lost last week, and I know they probably thought that after the way this game started. But this team doesn't quit. We keep fighting, and we keep leaning on each other."'

And everyone says Clowney is all about himself.
A premaddona.
A drama queen.

Yet he plays his butt off and gives high praise to his teammates.

He cares about this team. If he was all about himself, he wouldn't have came to SC in the first place.

There was a similar write-up about Shaw on SI.com. Nice to see the comments by JD, but also nice to see Conner getting some recognition as a very good QB.

I don't disagree, but Connor Shaw's heart in Clowney's body, would be a football wrecking machine unlike the world has ever seen...

Default Re: Clowney's comments about Shaw

I watched the replay of the 4th quarter last night, and there was a great shot of Clowney on the sidelines. It was on the out that Connor threw to Jerrel Adams that went right through his hands. JD was standing near the scene of the crime, watching intently, and threw up his hands, said something, and started shaking his head. I don't think he was complaining about the refs. I'm not saying the incidents are related, but Adams made a couple of nice grabs after that.

This quote was an exception, I think, but in general, Clowney's style of leadership is to call the team out, and people can respond to that in different ways. Unlike a lot of posters at this site, I think he sets high standards for himself, and expects his teammates to do what it takes to win.

Default Re: Clowney's comments about Shaw

I like what Bleacher Report had to say:

"He's not going to put up Heisman numbers like Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, but Shaw made a case on Saturday night that he's the toughest, most valuable player in the conference. Shaw has been a major part of South Carolina's most prosperous era as a program, and his heroics on Saturday night thrust his team right back in the thick of the SEC East race."

Toughest Most Valuable? I agree

I think a cheer needs to be started this Sat. when Miss St has 3rd and long and an obvious passing down. This would not only be intimidating to the QB but a good chance the tackle would jump preparing for Clowney.

Clowney...Clowney....Clowney...Clowney
