There is little pressure on him for sure, right now. If he plays poorly folks will say that he is a rookie and what did you expect?? If he plays average everyone will say he played great for his first game. If he plays well , then he is way above the norm.

Truth is that if he plays well, the pressure will increase not decrease. Expectations will be significantly raised and folks will expect him to do it every game. Then he might feel the need to press and make things happen that aren't there. It may sound paradoxical but it likely true.

I predict Jimmy will be right in the face of the defensive lineman all game!

The only pressure Clausen should worry about is the pressure coming from the Bengals defense.

Honestly, I dont think its super high, considered to someone like Bradford who was expected to start right away and play at a high level...

Clausen was expected to spend a year or so under Matt Moore and learn the ropes, but due to his poor play, he is thrust into the spot earlier than most would have expected/desired.

On top of that, theres really only room for improvement, he cant play any worse than Moore did, so that takes some pressure off Id guess..

There is going to be a learning curve, as with ANY rookie QB, and I just hope people are ready for that, and not have over the top expectations, because chances are, he isnt going to come out and light it up right away...

Charlotte fans typically are not very educated so the pressure will be there although it shouldn't be. If people start booing I will flip out.


This is statement is supposed to be informed? If they boo, it might be better than the usual silence "Charlotte fans" are accused of...but if they are yelling "Hooooov" or "Mooooose" they might be rednecks.

If Clausen is smart, he'll play as though it is game 11 or 12 in a losing season, and both of "us" have nothing to lose. He is not going to be traded or waived, we'll go after almost any position in the draft, EXCEPT a QB! It is all written off as developmental positioning and experience and he won't need Malox!

Well, for starters, moore is 0-2 this season, he failed to move the offense, and made numerous mental mistakes which lead to interceptions..

Clausen cant do much worse, and maybe having a rookie QB will get the coaching staff's attention to fixing the run game, which is our strength... If we can figure out a way to run the ball, that will open up some passes for Clausen, if we cant run the ball, we are in trouble, the defense will be pinning there ears back every play.
This could be made worse if our o-line doesnt have all its starters this week..

Theres only room for improvement...
