Clausen is going to have Big Ben success but without the rape.


I love it.. And I love Jimmy Clausen(no homo.) If he had an actual defense at Notre Dame he would have been in a BCS game and everyone would be all over his nuts. I watched every Notre Dame game this year and he did everything he could in every game. I honestly never saw him put his head down... And since when is having swagger as a QB a bad thing? Have you ever seen Philip Rivers play? That is one cocky douche but all the SD fans sure love him and he wins games. Having that swagger gives you a competative edge and thats what I like about Clausen.

I went back and watch some tape from a few scouting sites and I don't see how he was knocked for Leadership except for the Gruden interview.

He gets better as games go on, he basically carried ND while he was there. All the other players liked him...Heck Tate spent the summer at his place in Cali to work on timing and routes one year.... He can make all the throws he needs to, extremely accurate and has good pocket awareness.

I just don't get that slam and I definite want to know what McShay was smoking when he slammed Clausen pre draft.

I'm trying really hard to like Clausen. In college football, I disliked him just as much as the next guy, but I also hated Julius Peppers when he was in college. When he was a successful Panther, I sure found a way to support him. I'd love for Clausen to play well and make me a fan.

I think Clausen will be a great qb, and I looking forward to training camp this year and the QB battle that is gonna happen.

Great read.

Part of it's Notre Dame, part is being good, and part is not having anything to really put your finger on to say he's a bad guy.

People can't stand it when someone's gifted AND continually works to improve. It makes them realize what losers they are, and they lash out. There's the root of the Clausen criticism right there.

I really liked his lack of multiple interception games. That sure will be a relief from what we've had to suffer through the last couple of years.

so is this the so-called scuffle that HE initiated?



doesn't look that way to me...I read the background, but still, he didn't start it.



I remember that. They had just beaten Boston College in a close game (that shouldn't have been close). Clausen goes up to shake the guys handand the guy was still pretty emotional about the outcome, and he just gets in Jimmy's face and starts jaw jacking. Clausen did the absolute right thing....he didn't punch him like Legarrett Blount.....but he didn't just take the guy's shyt either, he pushed him out of his face and said, "Yeah, OK, whatever big man."


I've got no problem with that.

That was a nice read...for the half I read...but damn, the author needs to get a life. Unless he gets paid to do that (he didn't for that piece), writing that much about a kid in college is near stalker-level.


He owns the site and makes money for hits. When people like me spread his articles around and he gets hit, it makes money from ads.

Here is something else Panther fans should know. Clausens numbers from his sophomore and junior year come from a situation where everyone in the stadium including the hot dog vendors KNEW Notre Dame had to throw. They had ZERO running ability. Teams were getting consistent pressure on him with THREE man rushes. Jesus Mahoney, even NAVY was getting consistent pressure and rushes on him.

So....in order to have anything other than TERRIBLE quarterback numbers, he had to pass faster, under more pressure and INTO more pressure than any QB in college football.

When the defense can send three men and get pressure and never have to worry about stopping your non existent run, that means that unless your Quarterback can thread the needle, you won't score any points and will probably get picked off all day long.

Clausen scored points and rarely threw picks even when there were five in the box and six playing the pass. He's not just a little better than Colt McCoy or The Golden Calf of Bristol....he is a LOT better.

I think he will be a better pro than Sam Bradford. Clausen has performed under siege and chaos. Conditions that QB's have to deal with in the NFL.

Putting up good QB numbers at Florida the past few years wasn't that tough. McLovin would look like a stud in that situation.

Try putting up big numbers with
A pass rush in your face,
No running game to fall back on,
A toe that's half way torn off from when your left guard whiffed again and let through another sack.
Double teams on your two primary receivers
Zero element of suprise

I'm not saying Clausen is a sure thing. No QB is a sure thing in the NFL.
I'm not saying he didn't let his ego show through before he did anything to back it up.

But of all the QB's in this draft, if you could put any of them under the same pressure situations with the same plays and personel to get out of it, Clausen would beat any of them. I'm sure of that. I would bet my house and borrow more.

It's always easier to attack the source than try and refute their arguments.

I'm not arguing with a single thing they've said, I'm saying it's written like a freshman comp sci major in an elective creative writing class.
