It is easy to hate him. He just said on College Football Live that he is not sold on Shaw yet. Says that he has not learned to go through his progressions yet. If the primary receiver is not there, he automatically takes off. He says this because, per him, he has not started a full season yet, and has not learned to look to a second receiver yet. What a dip stick. It is hard to argue with a 13-1 record and 75.6% completion percentage this year. You would think he would learn some facts before spouting off.
Exactly what I was thinking.. upvote to you sir.
I was under the impression that our Head coach, a Heisman winning QB, was very happy with the way Shaw has learned to go through his progressions. Spurrier has said he wishes Shaw would hang in the pocket a little longer on third down, but you can not argue with the results.
LOL, Lattimore is our leading receiver. Does he really think all those catches were designed passes to him as the primary?

If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
He can't stand the fact we own his alma mater.
He didn't say anything that was really that bad man.
What he said was pretty true too.
Shaw does tuck it and run if his first progression isn't open usually; it is something that he is working on though and has gotten better at it. Our oline hasn't been giving him a lot of time to be able to go through the progressions either (the UGA game was the best our oline has every played.
Shaw is a great game manager but he still has a lot to learn at the qb position. He is learning to read the defense pre-snap and though and working on going through the progressions (has a long way to go on that though).
I watched the samething you did and Pollack didn't say anything bad about us.
Didn't he pick UGA to win last week? Lolz
of course he did. he's almost as bad as Mark May, who would not pick SC if we were up 49 points in the 4th quarter.
I also don't have time to teach you how to speak hobo.
I don't understand why someone would get upset at the comments by Pollack. First, Shaw does not appear to consistently go through his full progressions on passing plays. He completes a lot of passes for a high percentage because they are short passes. Look at the number of completions to passing yards and you see his passes this year have been 8-10 yards a pop which includes YAC. They are effective but this does not mean he is going through his progressions. Second, Erin Murray is a better QB than Shaw at this point because he has been starting for 3 years and his numbers prove it. Touchdowns and yardage are ahead of Shaw.
I think that pollock has completely mis-diagnosed the problem. The biggest issue is that Shaw doesn't throw to his first progression enough, IMO. He's a game manager in that respect. He doesn't want to make a poor decision that could cost us a game so he's conservative. He's a game changer with his feet, tho. That boy can scoot.
That's why erin murray has a better record than Shaw. That is the only numbers that really matter. Do you win. Montana didn't have the best numbers in NFL history but he is considered one of the best QB's to play in the NFL. Just Win Baby!
Ten of his last 41 passes in the last three games have gone for more than 20 yards. Just about 25%. If he could hit our receivers in stride instead of under throwing them, two or three of those ten would of been touchdowns. He is getting better, and I wouldn't be surprised if he puts it all together soon. Connor reminds me a little of Scam Newton. As much as I can't stand Scam, the two have some similarities on the field
Very true statements but that doesn't mean it's ineffective or he's not just a winner. People are too sensitive.
