If history is any indication, TCU has found its next Andy Dalton in Shawn Robinson

Could Shawn Robinson wind up being as good as one of the best TCU quarterbacks ever?

Only if history is any indication.

Here are the some key stats for two TCU quarterbacks through their first six career starts.

Quarterback A: 101-of-168, 60.1 percent, 1,108 yards, 4-2 record

Quarterback B: 100-of-163, 61.3 percent, 1,017 yards, 4-2 record

Quarterback A is Shawn Robinson.

Quarterback B is former Frogs standout Andy Dalton, who is currently enjoying another stellar season for the Cincinnati Bengals.

Dalton is arguably the best signal caller in TCU history and serves as a prime example of why patience is a virtue for coaches developing players at the position.

Robinson, a DeSoto High School product, has, at times, struggled with his decision-making.

The most problematic outcome of those struggles has been the turnovers, particularly in the team’s 31-16 loss to Texas a few weeks ago.

Currently, Robinson is dealing with a shoulder injury, but TCU head coach Gary Patterson has been mum on how significant that injury might be.

When Robinson does return, he’ll almost certainly resume his role as the starting quarterback. Young college football quarterbacks often experience growing pains.
