Default Shaw focused more than ever

He sends like he doesn't get rattled. I know that he was battling flu like symptoms during the Missouri game, but I seemed to notice his demeanor when he was reading the signals from the sidelines...he just seemed real stone faced. I attributed this to his illnesses, but he had the same look during the Miss state game.

Did anyone else notice that too? I haven't seem that before from him.

He's always been the serious one. He's actually been more laid back this year.

So we're talking about a game and a quarter? I don't really think that's a big enough window to consider him more focussed. That's just saying "he was more focused this week over last week"

Default Re: Shaw focused more than ever

Shaw became his own person this year. Look at his interviews. He's relaxed and forthright. In the past, he looked like a nervous wreck during the interviews.

He has emerged as the true leader of the team. I think he is more relaxed because he knows that he has the admiration of his teammates and they would follow him barefoot over a field of broken glass.

He's also got Dylan backing him up with a great attitude, which also helps.

I still think he will some day be winning state championships running the zone/read as a high school football coach.

I'm more of a purist...I try not to twist something in order to make my point. More focused coming off the bench with an illness and then carrying that over to the next game...yes...more focused, but that is me...as I said in the op and was asking if anyone else noticed that. Either you do or don't

Better than everyone's who have started regularly this season I would imagine. I haven't checked but I would think 18 TDs to 1 INT would be the best ratio in the nation.

Default Re: Shaw focused more than ever

I just think the pre-snap reads and play changes are harder on the road and in noise and confusion. The Mizzou game, he wasn't changing at the line, just going with the call and running when he needed to. At home games at the brice, the play switch works well, on the road, we should just play the called play and have an emergency option that Shaw can go to, even if it's throwing it away.

Just a thought, because we looked like crap at Tennessee on offense, and the pace of play was too slow with Shaw having to break focus to yell out the audible 6 or 7 times.
