does he somehow magically develop down field vision and see open receivers? I am puzzled at his lack of development in that regard
absolutely not. He is what he is as a redshirt jr. He is not going to magically develop vision. If he is our qb we will have a limited upside
He isn't a rs. He did not get his RS like 90% of QB's get. We used it at Auburn so he could play about 10 plays.
My question is this: are the wr's open?

On almost every replay that he runs, you can see open receivers. It ain't rocket science
Maybe he will magically grow about 4 more inches.. its obvious he cant see the entire field.
When he's in the pocket, or when hes running around out of the pocket? Not easy to see those guys when you are running for your life.
I don't know. I don't watch many replays.
Afraid the really bad news is that I"m not sure if we have anyone close to being ready to push him.
I'll try to remove the mystery for you. Shaw is at most 6 feet, probably more like 5"11" and he cannot see receivers when he is in the pocket surrounded by players 5-7 inches taller than him. Against Arkansas, SOS finally recognized this and rolled Shaw off of play action so he could see his receivers and make a decision to run or throw. That didn't happen today, I don't know why. I'm hoping it was a ruse to dupe Clemson. Otherwise, I'm dumbfounded.
If you don't roll Shaw out of the pocket, he will not be effective. It's that simple.

Is that even a serious question?!?
Are you really comparing a guy three years out of high school to Drew Brees?
He's not as good as John Elway was, either. So we should probably move on to the next guy.
Drew Brees is a future NFL Hall of Famer. Some people are unusually gifted. Shaw is not that gifted.

there are plenty of guys his height or shorter that are good. not an excuse
Not even close. I see wide open receivers all the time. They can't catch the ball of it isn't thrown to them. People see shaw it down and run or dump to the RB and assume that no one is open. Not the case at all.
Last year, Garcia held us hostage. I hope we don't have Shaw doing the same thing next year. I hope magically someone can push him to get better. We don't have anyone doing that now obviously. You'd think if he was limited via foot, he'd look to pass more. It just doesn't seem to be in him
Watch the body language of the receivers when they go to the LOS. They know the ball will not be thrown to them. It frustrates them and they don't rull full routes half the time. Did Shaw throw the ball downfield on any play today? His longest throw was 15 yds. If we don't generate offense downfield against Clemson, we will lose. They will generate some big plays. We will need to do the same.
