OK ENOUGH. Can't we just be realistic about Jimmy Clausen?

Moore had 2 games to prove himself and we should give Clausen more time to show what he can do. So far when the game was on the line he was able to lead them down the field with the help of some penalties. Still we were only down 10-7 in the third quarter after playing some of the worst Panther's ball I have witnessed. He wasn't able to do much else but still it is more about what he learns from one game to the next which is most important. It isn't a problem he made mistakes so much as he needs to show he can benefit from the experience and not keep repeating the same mistakes. That is what doomed Moore. It wasn't the mistakes so much as the continued mistakes and not playing well in either game.

If Clausen can watch some film and see how many guys were wide open down the field while he was dumping it off, How to stop staring down one receiver, stop trying to run for a first down on third and 13 and instead buy some time on a roll out and throw it downfield, he will improve. When he sees the defender between the receiver and himself, if he looks at another option knowing that you have to get points when you are in the redzone then he will have improved.

Lots of things to improve on. Besides does anyone think we can beat the Saints in their house with either Jimmy or Matt. I would prefer to throw Jimmy in there and see what he does. If he struggles again then you can decide what to do going forward. It isn't like Moore did anything either.

First off that's not exactly a huge difference in passing numbers. And second....the actual passes themselves. Matt's passes when he did make them, looked a lot more decisive and accurate. Jimmy's looked eratic today.

And second, the reason his stock went down is Jimmy played BETTER last week than this week.

matt moore has floated nearly every pass coming out of his hands this season. jimmy clausen showed a lot more with his throws today. he showed touch, the ability to zip it into coverage, and had really good placement on a lot of his throws. his second half today was light years ahead of anything matt moore has shown this season.

bottom line is he's a rookie. not every rookie is going to come in and play lights out in their first game.

Matt floated some of the longer passes. But his short passes were accurate, including the touchdown to Smith which split the defenders perfectly.

And bottom line. I agree. And that should be our attitude. Not FUTURE OF THE FRANCHISE!

we knew the game was going to be sloppy. Im really believing we have some truly ignorant fans. Seems like the majority of them is on this site. +/- some.

Basicially I feel that you are ignorant if you believed that a rookie qb was going to get his first professional game and not make mistakes. its not like he made awful decisions like the opponent qb. He played like a learning rookie. PERIOD. You looking at all these numbers and stats n shyt. F*ck the numbers. He played like all the other greats did when they was a rookie..And to credit Clausen's situation compared to the rest, the others probably didn't have their first in the rain...
