Hunter Cantwell: 1 day as backup QB?

65 posts in this topic

Read that Clausen took ALL snaps today with second team.

Wow.

I think it is more surprising that Cantwell was the backup even for a day. Didn't we all expect the team to start grooming Clausen for the future, whether that be as a starter or backing up Moore?

Clasuen has a nice thrown ball, but he's still hesitating right now...at least from what I saw today.

see, everyone was getting all worked up during the offseason. you have to wait people. things don't happen in the offseason, they happen in training camp and preseason.

there is still chance clausen could be starting by week 1. we won't know of course, until we wait and see what training camp and preseason brings.

do be so impatient. good things come to those who wait.

this is all because of Weis. he had 1) a pick problem, and 2) a dancing problem his second year at ND. Weis got him into the habit of protecting the football to the point where he sometimes gets too conservative. it showed last year with only 4 pics all season compared to like 20 his second year. bad for practice, but there is something to be said about being extra careful with the football until your timing is right.

My guess is that Clausen will start the 2010 season as the Panthers #2 QB unless he totally bombs out in training camp and preseason.Something i can't see happening.

So...do we even know that this is a permanent thing yet, or just a part of the normal plan to get all of the back up QB's some reps with the 2nd team?

    • You do realize no one wanted RyanCare/ObamaCare Lite to pass, right? If anything, the media and democrats has made themselves absolute fools lately. STILL no evidence Trump colluded with Russia whatsoever, which is quite the funny irony in this whole conspiracy. Trump inherited a mess. Hard to fix this mess when you got crybaby globalists and dems everywhere.    
    • I hate this DG analogy so much.  It only makes sense in the context of an efficient market where teams are rational, have perfect information, and scouts are always right about players.  But we have ample evidence that is not the case.  Sometimes, talented players just don't work out.  Injuries derail careers.  Teams make oddball picks.  Sometimes, you are just wrong about a player (see Ealy, Kony). I like him a lot, but DG's habit of always trading up / never trading down may ultimately be his downfall in CAR.  It results in a lack of depth across the roster and it makes your roster very vulnerable to i) injuries (see 2015 vs. 2016) and ii) missing on evals.  If we missed on Funchess (jury still out), that hurts - but missing on Funchess when you traded multiple picks to get him compounds the issue. Trading up and trading down are both valid strategies - but I'd suggest balancing the two strategies would improve your chances of long-term success.
