No mention of any other QB's on the roster. Interesting.
I have heard whispers that next year Dylan will be the starter with shaw rotating in
Troll on. Troll on.
Uh, Thompson isn't apro QB either but I do think Thompson plays 80% of the snaps next year. Shaw is a gamer but he's too easy to gameplan for plus he's not durable.
I'm not saying he is or isn't... those are Spurrier's words not mine.
Spurrier or Stevecook?
Thompson has some physical traits that translate to the NFL. He's pretty tall, has a good arm, and can move a little bit. Spurrier said he has a chance. He didn't say he was a sure fire first round pick.
Shaw doesn't have the arm, or the size, or the passing ability, really. Shaw is a good college QB, though.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
Any of you who get a downvote for expressing your opinion will get an upvote from me. I'm all for an open, interesting, intelligent discussion. I may not join it, but I like to read it. Ha!
Well said...I'm team Thompson but if you tell that to half the people on the board they take offense and sh** a brick
Making bets and cashing checks
If Shaw stays healthy, he will play more than DT next year. His running ability out weighs his short comings in the passing game.
Yep, he's definitely easy to gameplan for. That's why we've finished the past 2 seasons 7-6 after our bowl victories.
I don't care who plays next year, really, because they will have won a fair competition. However, Shaw being easy to game plan for just isn't true. In fact, I've heard quite a few coaches say just the opposite. That his ability to break long runs out of the pocket makes it harder to plan for and that his runs break defenses spirits. If anything, Thompson is the easier to game plan against once a lot of film gets out there on him.
Do you actually know anything about football?
You can bet that the original poster did not have any of that in mind when he started this thread.
I don't pretend to know what he had in mind, but I still think people should be able to post their opinions without retaliation. No one should be upset because another poster disagrees with them. What's the point of posting if we all agree with each other? I suppose we can just read one post and nod agreement.
I taught high school for many years. I challenged my students to look for my errors as I taught. They could bring a test paper to me and tell me that they thought their answer was right as long as they could back it up, I welcomed them to correct me. They developed into critical thinkers because of it. I am not threatened by those who disagree with me or correct me as long as they can support their argument. There were times that I did not agree with the students, but I still gave them points because they could logically support their correction. There were also times that they were right and the standardized test was wrong. If they could prove it by their textbook or research, they got the points. There are often two or more valid sides to an argument. Sometimes more than one answer is correct.
I might downvote an attack or outright rudeness, but I never downvote a poster simply because I disagree with him. I mostly give upvotes. I suppose I'm a proponent of positive reinforcement.

Spurrier no doubt. Have you been living under a rock?
