Thoughts On Jimmy Clausen

26 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Jimmy Clausen is getting Ripped on the NFL RedZone Report. Here’s a small excerpt, “Let me tell you something about Jimmy Clausen. Ready? I’m going to let you in on a secret. He sucks.” Dr. Roto goes on, “This guy should not be a pro quarterback. Maybe in the CFL, maybe a third stringer in the NFL somewhere, this guy is not a pro quarterback.” [URL="http://thexlog.com/201108200700/xtra-point-football/nfl/does-jimmy-clausen-suck/"]Here's the whole thing.[/URL]

Don't believe there is any way you can make a definitive statement about a player, especially a qb, until they've at least had 3 years in the NFL. Some of them don't begin to blossom until after that, rich Gannon for example, or our own Steve Burline.

Yup i see Jimmy as a Gannon too its going to take a few years and it's not going to be on this team

Brees took 3 years to become elite , most fan believe because of certain QB's on other teams took their team to the playoffs early in the career that all young QB's should do it, while you hope for it as a fan, it's just not realistic


I hope Jimmy gets to start and does become great it just won't happen HERE

Jimmy Jam has played well. Not great, not poor. Better than Cam has, but Cam has more upside.

One may argue the point, but Jimmy's technique as an actual QB is decidedly more polished than Cam's, but the problem is is that he's inexperienced with the reads and is somewhat skiddish (not that I can totally blame him). Whether he can greatly improve, still remains to be seen, but I do see some improvement. I am not ready to call him a bust, but neither am I ready to annoint him as the poor man's Drew Brees. He could be too short or too slow to start in the NFL, but only time will tell. I like his motivation, determination, and ability to be analytical about the whole situation because he has been placed in a tough spot since he became a pro.

I really hope we have a new thread every time any tv or radio personality weighs in on one of our players. I feel so poorly informed that I didn't know "Dr. Roto" didn't like Jimmy! Someone call Rivera!

didn't say he will become brees, just that he's in the same situation and will never get a fair shake here:seeya:

I dont understand why you would complain about an informative post regarding the panthers , These forums should stand as a place where all info concerning the panthers can be found. Instead we have only a small handful of people able to start new threads, and site admins who never answer emails, and smart@ss comments like yours. :)

sorry for ruining your reading of such an 'informative' post. I hope this forum never becomes filled with one topic every time someone comments on our QB situation - though I'm sure it will be, since that is typically how it goes. I don't see why we needed another post on Clausen when there's already several, let alone one that is just a link to a radio show.

by the way if you think my smartass comment was bad, wait until you meet some of the regulars. if you have such an issue with the site, the posters, the rules, and the admins... maybe this isn't a good spot for you?

Sorry, mav, I understand what he is saying and can empathize with it. Sometimes there appears to be a double standard going on. Moreover, I could argue that there is an undercurrent of hypocrisy. Perhaps you are just being too hard on the newcomers. I suggest to everyone that we should let Zod be Zod, Kurb be Kurb, etc. It is not really any of our business---regulars or otherwise---to get our panties all up in a wad because somebody starts a thread that we may perceive as redundant or useless. Let the mods be mods, and let the assholes be assholes!

Maybe you should take your own advice and let assholes be assholes? Or am I not allowed to be one at all? ;P

I get your point, and generally I ignore posts that I don't have anything constructive to say about, but I'll be a jackass occasionally... as will just about everyone on this board. I had no idea if the OP was an old poster or what, I don't care and I usually only notice specifically who is posting something if I quote them.

Also, it's not as if I have been here forever, either. At some point, we're all new posters, we all get occasional sarcastic remarks from people who have been here longer. If you can't 'roll' with the 'punches,' you end up getting trolled by Fiz and it's bad news.

Ha ha, I like the "Jimmy Jam" moniker.

JC is listed as 6-2 222 pounds, but to me he just seems small for a quarterback. That is one of many things against him to be a good NFL QB.
