Default listening to local radio show "the game"

and they are pounding thompson and think shaw is the better option. they backed it up with stats..the guy said thompson was was 5-10 with 2 picks. I saw a qb that had problems on one series, his first, and after that he settled in and really made some nice throws. throws that i highly doubt connor could make with the shoulder situation as it seems.

The "captain" Carey Rich said Dylan is just too nice and wants to avoid dissention in the locker room. He said he wishes he could be more like Chad Kelly. I am wondering if they believe this or just want chatter. I mean its evident that Dylan is the best option right now. To me, Connors shoulder is what it is. to still think he is the best guy is sorta like burying your head in the sand.

2 picks?


I mean, granted, they probably should have been picks, but they shouldn't just make up stats like that.

I agree (with you). I think Dylan is our best option at this point. Connor gives you more options WHEN HE'S HEALTHY. However, he's not healthy, and all you have to worry about is the ground game with him.

They can bring up numbers all they want, but Shaw SHOULD HAVE HAD 2 more picks than he ended up with. He had 2 balls hit the DBs in BOTH hands that they just dropped. The stat sheet could be a LOT uglier than it is today for Shaw if we were playing anyone better.

Dylan should be our starter until Connor is 100%. Until that day comes. There should even be a question as to who should be out there. Once Connor is 100% THEN you can revisit the depth chart and see who should be the #1 guy.

Any credibility that the "captain" previously held was shredded with this comment alone.

i cant remember the 2nd one but the one where it hit the UAB guy in the hands shouldve been a pick, and i think it wouldve against SEC play

either way...its pretty clear that Shaw is not going to be ready to play, at least i dont see how he could be, time for DT to show us what he has against some real competition

Yeah, I know, but regardless of what it should have been, it should not be reported as happening. That's just football.. it happens all the time, even in SEC play. I mean.. if a receiver has a drop because of his inability to bring it in, but the pass was perfect, it shouldn't be counted as a completed pass for the QB. It's just an unprofessional thing to say IMO.

More idiots who think they know what the hell is going on.
First, comparing him to Chode Kelly, who last I checked hadn't played a down, is idiotic, and shows he is just a tater.

Second, no question, Dylan is the best option right now...Connor Shaw can only hurt the team by playing right now. He needs to just focus on getting healthy.

What I don't see is why people think Dylan is a scrub? The two are pretty close.
Connor is faster, but I think Dylan may have just a tad more arm strength.
But both have shown they can throw the deepball, and both can run the zone-read, so really, I don't see this offense having to change much under Dylan.

Still hand it to Marcus (and Mike Davis) and you a multitude of guys to throw to (Sanders, Ellington, Byrd, Anderson, Adams, Cunningham, Miles).

One guy is hurt. The other guy came in and played pretty well. That's what we should be expecting around here. Good quarterback play.

I'm just wondering if Spurrier for once is having trouble making that decision to start Dylan. Shaw has done everything that Spurrier has asked and more.

I think because of that Spurrier is having a difficult time pulling the trigger on this one.

I'm not sure that Connor is the best option even when healthy. If Dylan can continue to complete b/w 50-60 percent of his passes and we get a more 'traditional' run game along with the zone read then this offense can be pretty amazing. There is a big 'if' there, but Dylan has completed 11 more passes than Connor and has 333 more yards. Connor didn't look quite right even before the injury. However, if Dylan looks like he does on his first few drives then who knows. I love football season.

All I know is that over the past 2 years we are now 14-2...not too bad for a team who can't find a qb to last all year, no premiere receiver this year, and a heisman candidate missing part of the year and coming off a surgery.

If Dylan is held back it's because of a ceiling on his ability and not a lack of leadership qualities.

Edit: FWIW -- QB ratings: Dylan 170, Shaw 115, Strickland 275 -- and Boyd 166

guess i'm below average then ... Connor is hurt and didn't do jack crap against that same bottom half Con USA defense that Dylan lit up.

Again, once Connor is healthy ... then you can revisit the chatter, but until Connor is 100% healthy. He's not going to be able to throw the ball, and limits our Offense.

So the argument is because he played more SEC games he should be the starter? Personally, I'm not too happy with either option right now but I would hold off on making any judgements.

No, anyone with above average intelligence would know that's the same damn argument that led us to that Auburn loss last year that cost us a possible shot at the SEC title game last year.

The only difference as that at the time Connor hadn't looked nearly as good as Dylan has looked thus far.

Really people??? Look it is what it is. Connor is hurt and we have to play DT. Only thing we can do now is just wait and see how he does against a SEC foe.
