I didn't see Pollack's comments. But, Shaw isn't a sit in the pocket, pro-style Qb, and never will be. He's an old school, college QB, and very good in that role. He wins with making fairly accurate and safe passes off play action. He a great game manager who scrambles as good as anyone I've seen. If that was Pollack's point then he's right. However, if he doesn't recognize that Shaw is developing into a top-notch college Qb then he's wearing Red-colored shades.

Whatever Shaw has been doing, I hope he continues doing.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.

He's an Assclown! Why would anyone care what he thinks?
Throw to Cunningham late in game down 3 with a bum shoulder.
I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and I am all out of bubble gum.
yep^^^^ alotta folks need to watch the one sack (coverage) by jarvis last week that went for -10 yards and killed the drive. CS was loooking down field....see how that ended up. i will take CS that extends drives with his legs (too much) over his predesessor that took bad sacks and threw games away, all day
The QB is one of 11 people on the field when a team plays offense. They are not one of the 11 on the field when a team plays defense nor one of the 11 on the field during special teams. Sometimes special teams put in a QB to hold the ball but that is normally the backup QB.

I'll go with head-to-head competition thank you.
Erin - 11 of 31 (35.5%) for 109 yards, 0 TD's and 1 Int (plus he fumbled, but GA recovered the ball)
Shaw - 6 of 10 (60.0%) for 162 yards, 2 TD's passing, 78 yards rushing, 1 TD , 0 Int 0 fumbles
By the way, we (Shaw) won the game 35-7. Yep! Ol' Erin is the better QB. He just hasn't learned how to win the big games in his 3 years as a Dawg.

I was thinking about Shaw's game the other day while watching the Ga game again, and the more I think about, the more I like it.
His thinking is quite simple...get the first down, get the next first down, repeat until you score. Slowly move down the field, eat up yards and clock....and if...a chance comes for a 20 or 30 yard pass down the field without throwing an interception, then he'll take it.That is managing a game. Love our QB!
Lighten up on May. He is a foil to Lou. (In other words,he picks the opposite of Lou for entertainment value.) May had his head sheepishly bowed at halftime of our game last week. Some of you act like little girls with their panties in a wad. Connor is still learning the QB position. He is good and is going to do nothing but get better. I can't wait to see him next year. He will, without a doubt, be the most efficient QB in the SEC. (He might already be that, and probably is now.)
To be fair, Shaw does have a problem going through his progressions. Most college QBs do.
I love him to death, but he does take off at times when guys are open.
He just picked the Gamecocks and said we'd win b/c of Shaw.

I agree...his assessment and opinion didn't bother me at all. He said let's see how Shaw does the next two weeks.
If all goes well I'll expect him to have a more positive opinion!
I'm not sold on shaw either, am I a dip stick too? It's not hard to argue with a 13-1 record. Look at his production as a passer. He's thrown over 200 yds 5 times in fourteen games, all against sub-par defenses (KY, Citadel, Clemson, Nebraska, Mizzou). 75.6% completion percentage this year? He hasn't thrown the ball over 25 this season (highest 21). I'm not saying Connor Shaw is bad, heck I like him. He's a great game manager, pretty good decision maker, and good with his feet. I disagree with Pollack that he doesn't know how to get through his progressions. He misses receivers sometimes, but other than Geno Smith every college qb does. He's patient, but conservative, and not everyone likes a conservative qb. Shaw's good at what he does. But most ppl outside of Gamecock Nation are not sold on Connor because he's a game manager.
