Clausen versus Weinke- a better comparison

151 posts in this topic

Unfortunetly, though, he has looked better than Moore so he is our man by default

Get over it, support the kid

Based on what? They both lost 2 games> Seems even to me.

And the offense seems much better to me under Moore. we moved the ball and threw some picks but lets be honest, Clausen should have been picked at least 2 times yesterday. Truth is his passes were so far off they weren't close to anybody.

Give him one more game. If he sucks again, then after the bye I would give Moore a chance for sure.

Also, for what it is worth Flacco got into the endzone game 1.

** until games matter and teams plan for him

And Clausen just sucks even when no one has film on him. I guess once they do he will suck even worse.

2 wins.

Stats sheets don't always tell the full story. Clausen had a better QB rating than Brees 3/4 of the way through the game Sunday.....did that mean he was more impressive?

Also, for what it is worth Flacco got into the endzone game 1.

The stats mattered until they ran counter to your argument, at which point, the stats lie.

Flacco sucked through two games. What a loser. Too bad for them they stuck it out and didn't go with Troy Smith.

You can't always evalute play by the a QB's stats. I mean Clausen had 90 QB rating on Sunday.....I think it is fair to say that probably suggests he was slightly better than he really looked.

I agree. Flacco was a very big part of those wins the Ravens had.

You mean he plays like a rookie? That is shocking.

OK Mrs. Moore, I believe I speak for everyone when I say it's always good to have players' wives come on here and post, but Clausen having no history probably, maybe could be because he's a rookie and if we're looking at "should have been picked," Moore would have thrown 12 picks in his first 2 games. But again, thanks for coming on here. Always good to have a wife's point of view.

The point is, Why? Why play Moore? Because he might be marginally better than a rookie?

It's obviously not because he's going to lead us to the playoffs if he plays. If you think that, well then there's no help for you.

The thing is, Moore is not the perceived future of this franchise, Clausen is. There is no benefit of starting Moore who may or may not win a few games and play marginally better than Clausen. Stats will prove time and time again that all the greats have struggled their rookie years. Some have looked downright awful, but you have to let the kids play.

Once Clausen was named the starter the thing was set. You can't bench him now, especially back in favor or Moore. WHY would you do that? That would kill any confidence he's starting to gain and whats the possible upside of doing this? THERE IS NONE. Plain and simple.

But we have a better option who is still 6-4 as a starter. I told you this would happen. Yeah we need to give Moore another start, so far Clausen has shown nothing. No need to start a bad rookie and keep sucking when we have a better option on the bench.

what was my arguement?

Also, Flacco didn't suck in his first 2 games. That is why the Ravens started off 2-0. Pretty sure, he didn't suck that season and that is why they went to the AFC Championship game.

just comparing stats doesn't mean you are comparing what two guys really are doing on a field.

QB 1 (stats from first 2 starts this season):

20/49 - 307 yards - 2 TD - 4 INT - 40.8 rating

QB 2 (stats from first 2 starts this season):

27/54 - 334 yards - 1 TD - 1 INT - 72.1 rating

Which one would you take?
