1. For those who say he "wins," my impression is that our defense was the primary reason for most of our wins this year. And if Gore had not broken off two 80 yard TDs, we would have lost that game too.
2. I have always felt that the mark of a clutch QB is one who wins games when they matter in the post-season against good defensive teams. Maybe Shawn belongs in that catagory, but he hasn't shown us that ability yet.
So, I have to join those who are withholding judgment right now.
This is like a teenager having sex for the first time, 5 seconds and DONE. Sorry, we've played 4 games and Shaun has had one touchdown drive that lead to win so far. Good work. Otherwise, that's not clutch IMO. Touchdowns in the 4th quarter are great, but with our defense, we need to score earlier in the game so we can start bringing more pressure. Shaun still has a lot to prove before I call him clutch.
