Ok, after looking at history he doesn't have a superbowl ring, but he has won more games than Clausen.
In 1998, Steve Young led the 49ers to a 12-4 record and their 16th straight winning season, all with 10 wins or more. Once again, the 49ers faced the Green Bay Packers in a thrilling NFC Wild Card game that went back and forth for its duration. Things looked bleak when the 49ers trailed 27-23 in the waning seconds. However, in one last moment of glory, Young hit Terrell Owens on a dramatic, game-winning 25-yard touchdown pass, dubbed by many as "The Catch II", that put the Niners ahead at 30-27 with 0:03 left on the game clock. They luckily dodged a bullet early in the drive, as a Jerry Rice fumble recovered by the Packers was inadvertently ruled down.
Clausen has a good throwing motion, but he often releases the ball with a low trajectory. That leads to passes that can be easily batted down, or possibly picked off.
I don't get how Clausen doesn't have a textbook throwing motion. Granted, a unique motion doesn't bother me as long as the ball gets there but this kid has recieved the type QB coaching throughout his life that very few NFL players see.
Given that he has a history of working relentlessly on his mechanics, I believe he can fix it.
the throw in question, though? Straight into the dirt.
