First of all Clausen had more than 8 passing yards in the first half. For those of you uneducated observers, that is TEAM passing yards, which adds sack yardage into the equation, he actually had about 25-30, no less than Moore or Jake on average. Given the # of run plays early on, that should be no surprise.

Someone said he was too short...he's 3 inches taller than Brees.

I'll defend him on the sack-fumbles because if the line doesn't break down in one second those don't happen. The fumbled handoff, that's his fault.

The passing yardage? Could have added 30 yards if LaFell would've caught a pass and not have missed it and been called for interference.

Clausen is the right QB to be playing...give him something to work with, anything. A RB who on 1st down can get more than -2, 1 and 0 yards on consecutive 1st downs, an OL to block so he doesn't have to roll out, and receivers who can catch and keep their feet in bounds. Coaches who act like they care would also help.

How can anyone justify Clausen over Moore, Moore over Clausen, or either over Pike? The starting QB is irrelevant at this point.

Sorry but every time Clausen plays he is regressing more and more. He needs to sit some more and learn. Moore can actually get the team to the redzone which Clausen fails to do. Right now Moore is the better choice. Clausen and Moore might not even start next year or be on the team. You need to play the guy that helps the Wide receivers improve.

Its sad you have to do mental gymnastics to justify your starting QB.

They all stink just get used to it

The team had 8 passing yards. Clausen passed for 15 yards, fumbled the ball twice and had an INT in the first half.

Clausen is a risk or just unproductive.

Moore is risk/reward.

Moore can a.) take a snap from the center without fumbling b.) hand off to the running back without fumbling.

That is all.

pointless stats for comparison.

Moore came in a made some good throws staying in the pocket. Can't really fault him for either pick given how they occured. The backup QB is suppose to take that last shot and hope his WR makes a play...throwing the ball away is worse on that last play.

How do you justify interceptions as better than incompletions? Moore stands in the pocket and makes good throws to DB's and LB's. Sure he can get us to the red zone but he's a pick machine. 6 picks this year.

It's easy to justify any QB over the other right now...they all will suck with this team.

To answer the topic question though...it's easy. Clausen was benched...that's enough justification.

I'm sorry but at least Moore hasn't fumbled a snap what seems like every game, and he could hand it off every time with out it popping out of his hand a yard away from the running back.

Did you even watch the game? First Int for Moore hit Edwards hands it was low but it was catchable. The second was a throw up that the receiver could have gotten if he fought for it. Clausen couldnt even throw a long pass to a open receiver.
