BEREA, Ohio - Connor Shaw played for his dad in high school and ran South Carolinas offence under the ultra-demanding Steve Spurrier in college. If that wont toughen a guys skin, nothing will.Raised in a football family, Shaw knew when he was 5 years old that all he ever wanted to do was be an NFL starting quarterback.The undrafted rookie may get his shot on Sunday.With Johnny Manziel done for the season with a hamstring injury and Brian Hoyer still unable to throw because of a sore shoulder and biceps, Shaw will likely make his starting debut when the Browns (7-8) conclude another disappointing season this week against the Baltimore Ravens.For Shaw, its a dream come true, the chance to show he belongs.Im really excited about it, he said. Its been a long season.And a long journey for the former Gamecocks star, who went 27-5 as a starter in the SEC, but then was invited for just one visit to an NFL team before Mays draft. He wasnt selected, but signed in May.During training camp, he was an outsider in the quarterback battle between Hoyer and Manziel. But the 6-foot-1, 210-pound Shaw showed enough during the preseason — he went 8 of 9 for 123 yards and a touchdown against Washington — that the Browns decided to keep him on their practice squad. He was around in case of emergency — and hes needed.Shaw doesnt have much time to get ready for the Ravens, who can still earn a playoff spot with a win and loss or tie by San Diego, or with a tie and a San Diego loss. But Browns coach Mike Pettine believes the 23-year-old Shaw, who threw 23 touchdown passes and just one interception as a senior, will produce even on short notice.You just look at him, and does he pass the eye-ball test? No, Pettine said. He doesnt have the strongest arm, and hes not the fastest. Hes not the biggest, but he just found a way. Hes just got something about him.Thats always been the case for Shaw, who likened his college game to Manziels. Hes mobile, can run for a first down when needed, but dont expect him to flash any money signs if he scores.Im a tough, gritty guy, he said when asked to describe his playing style. I feel like Im smart with the ball. Well see. I havent had a whole lot of reps in the NFL, especially live reps so well see how it plays out if I suit up.Shaw got his first snaps with Clevelands offence Tuesday, and by all accounts showed hes spent the past few months studying. He wasnt out of place in the huddle or behind centre.I was impressed, said tackle Joe Thomas, who was named to eighth straight Pro Bowl team. Thomas said he didnt know Shaws background.I cant really remember taking any reps with him, Thomas said. But he stepped right in and hardly made any mistakes calling the plays.Although he was out of sight for much of the season, Shaw worked hard. He was behind Hoyer and Manziel on the depth chart but alongside on the ride.I was doing everything they were, he said. I was trying to stay as sharp as possible because you never know when youre going in.Its been quite a year for Shaw, who married his high school sweetheart, Molly. They recently welcomed a baby girl, Mila.And now, his career might take a step forward, too.Hopefully we can cap it off with a win, he said.NOTES: Pettine said theres no doubt in my mind that he and owner Jimmy Haslam share the same vision for the team. I get together with Jimmy for a minimum of an hour every week. We are very much on the same page. ... Pettine said he was alarmed and encouraged to hear Manziel admit he didnt take his job seriously enough this season. Its rare that you have a rookie like a Joel Bitonio, who comes in and its seamless. Most rookies typically are shocked by the speed of the game, by the challenge that it brings, going from being a college student and football is a part-time thing where now its to 9 to 5-plus. You might as well carry a briefcase.___AP NFL websites: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Derek Norris Jersey .

Subway workers in Rio de Janeiro, meanwhile, were holding an assembly to vote on whether they would strike to demand higher wages, threatening to disrupt transportation. By late Tuesday night there was no announcement of their decision. Both situations are deeply worrying for World Cup organizers. Theyre counting on the subway systems to carry tens of thousands of fans to the games. The problem is a bigger worry for Sao Paulo, where the Itaquerao stadium is far from the hotel areas where most Cup tourists will stay. Union workers in Sao Paulo suspended their strike for two days, but planned to vote again Wednesday to decide whether to renew it. If they do, the subway system would grind to a halt on Thursday just as Brazils national soccer team faces Croatia in the Cups opening match. Sao Paulos Metropolitann Transportation agency said it has a "Plan B" -- yet refused to say exactly what that would entail.dddddddddddd "We will only give details if and when the workers go on strike again," an agency official said, insisting he couldnt give his name because he wasnt allowed to speak to the press about the issue. A Sao Paulo labour court has fined the union $175,000 for the first four days of the strike and said it would add $220,000 for each additional day the work stoppage continued. The subway strike was the latest unrest to hit Brazil in the run-up to the World Cup. Teachers remain on strike in Rio and routinely block streets with rallies. Police in several cities have gone on strike, but are back at work now. There also has been a steady drumbeat of anti-government protests across Brazil blasting spending on the World Cup and demanding improvements in public services. The protests that began last year have diminished in size but not in frequency, and they also have disrupted traffic at times.
