    Connor Shaw is an awesome young man who will keep at it until someone somewhere gives him the chance to prove how awesome he is. He had a magical run at South Carolina in the QB deep SEC, and there are some records from his play that may never be broken.

    Thanks for doing the podcast. There has to be a team out there who will Shaw a real shot!

      Thanks for listening Mike and always appreciate the feedback. I will be very surprised if he’s not on an NFL roster this season!
