Jimmy Clausen is a bust

Why are we starting Jimmy Clausen? Why did we even draft him? Did the Panthers not watch him at Notre Dame? He's been overrated on every level of football he's played and like Moore he has below average arm strength and unlike Moore he isn't too bright.

We need to start Matt Moore again. He throws a nice spiral despite the lack of velocity on his passes.

Stop billing this bum (Clausen) as the future of the Carolina Panthers. OK, I can understand if Moore isn't the future, but Clausen definitely isn't.

Let's stop wasting draft picks and not use the 1st overall pick in the draft next year on AJ Green or Julio Jones. How about we do something smart and draft Andrew Luck? :rolleyes:

Seriously, Andrew Luck is basically the next Dan Marino. He's got the exact same kind of lightning quick release and he's better than half of the QBs in the NFL right now as a college player.

I throw a pretty nice, tight spiral myself... maybe I should start for the Panthers.

He has looked better than Moore.

It'd be an upgrade over Clausen :cool:

We need compensation for that 2nd round pick we wasted....

Clausen makes Joey Harrington look like an NFL Legend.

Right...because one lousy start is all you need to tell if a talented kid is going to be a franchise QB...

most reactionary post of Week 4.

Clausen is a good QB...if he doesn't get ruined by this pathetic excuse for an offense. Davidson is one of the suckiest OCs in the league.

Why draft a QB in the top 5 next season when we drafted 2 (and kept Pike on the roster) just this past draft? We've got MUCH bigger needs than another young QB.

So you've been able to determine Clausen is a bust after seeing him play in 1 NFL game against a very good defense in the pouring rain?

Hands down, Clausen has looked better than Moore this year - that's not even debatable. Mike Mayock among many others believe Clausen has top 10 draft pick talent at QB. Like any rookie starting QB, it's going to take Clausen some time to get his bearings.

I don't get why you're trying to defend him. Anyone who saw him at Notre Dame knows he doesn't have the tools to be a franchise QB. If you're not gonna have arm strength you could AT LEAST be accurate. Too bad Clausen fails at that too. He's just a hype machine cause he played at big time programs on the HS and Collegiate level. He's got NOTHING.

We'd be better off starting Tony Pike RIGHT NOW. Unlike Clausen, Pike actually showed he had NFL potential in college and didn't throw a bunch of lollypop jump balls because actually has an ARM.

If Pike isn't the answer, then we just need to accept our mistakes and get Andrew Luck. I guarantee Andrew Luck is going to a great NFL QB just like Mark Sanchez. Those are 2 guys with REAL talent. Unlike this fugazzi Clausen.

If we have a top 5 pick what do you propose we do? Draft a WR? We're gonna need a new QB anyway most likely.

I certainly haven't drunk the Claussen Kool-Aid yet, but let's give the kid a break. He's not looking that bad and he shows signs of being able to learn on the run. He might just have what it takes to make it. Or he might not. One game isn't enough to tell.

I tried drinking the Clausen Kool-Aid but it tastes like crap.

How about we trade for Brodie Croyle? I've always liked him... real talent... or even Kevin Kolb, he could be the future.
