I think your overreacting.. No one wants Jimmy to fail, and there is nothing wrong with wanting Matt Moore to succeed.

I would rather have Clausen hold a clipboard for 2 years.

Would this be the same Clausen that on things like NFLN, ESPN etal have said the guy is nothing more than the 3rd QB on this roster?

Cut the BS, the guy isn't ready and odds are will never be anything but a backup in this league.

Rookie QBs start when there is no other option. Matt Moore has won NFL games. Matt Moore is 6-2 as a starter and has looked well in the Carolina offense.

The Charlotte media is just applying standard logic that this season has Moore's name written all over it. The Aaron Rogers path is ultiamtely the one I want our future QB to take if that man is not Moore.

How can Clausen fail when he won't play a snap this year unless Moore and Cantwell get injured and at that point we'd have Vinny Testeverde back on the team.

The same NFLN and ESPN that also talk about Clausen competing for a starting job toward the end of this season or as late as the beginning of next year? I haven't read anything either where anybody thinks Clausen will not be at least the second option at QB by seasons end. Hate much?

Or the Panthers get off to a bad start and the playoffs look out of reach, do you think they will not throw Clausen in there to get him some real reps?

Moore gets injured and is going to miss more then two to three weeks, do you think they will not go with Clausen? I understand if he has to miss a quarter or just a game or two they go with Cantwell. But, not for anything other than short term.

Panthers lock down a playoff spot and the offensive line continues to look bad, do you think for the last two or three games that the Panthers don't give Clausen some time in there as well as Cantwell?

Chances this season that Clausen gets some playing time is far better than the chance he gets none at all.

Charlotte media wants to sell newspapers and ad spots. Clausens productivity does not matter. You sir, are mistaken and drinking some serious ND Kool-Aid.

Love the Avatar though...

Was Tom Sorenson at training camp doing a little gay dance and fist pumping every time Jimmy sailed a pass or fumbled a snap? Just curious what the "openly rooting" actually means.
