Anybody who remembers what happened to Weinke when he was thrown to the wolves as a rookie is very happy with Clausen being given teh clipboard right now.

And remember not only was Weinke a heisman he was older and more mature due to the baseball career. Most rookies cannot make the jump and start. You have to let the m simmer a year or so.

yeah, i can see that.

yea starting them as rookies was very detrimental to Matt Ryan, Joe Flacco, Eli Manning, Peyton Manning, Jay Cutler, Kyle Orton, Ben Roethlisberger, Donovan McNabb, Mark Sanchez, boy is it getting tiring to name all these guys that contradict popular fallacy

not that I saw


Where are the hot arabs in your avatar? Grr.

Also, maybe AE can work into special packages over time. I could see him being our "version" of Brad Smith.

PS: those rookies that started had way better teams and looked better than Clausen has by and large. Clausen isn't done or whatever, but yeah.

Well I guess that settles it then. Clausen isn't part of that group.

At this point it really doesn't matter Jerry has put us in position for a top 3 pick and alot of money in FA (if he chooses 2 spend it) so we won't be down for long just this season.

first consider if you think Jimmy is a legit part of this group and second remember the first season's for some of these guys and realize you have not seen a complete season from clausen yet.

Lastly, consider the list of rookie starters who did not/could not hack it plus great QB's who were allowed to sit a year or two behind someone else...hint, its a bit larger

The reality is that Moore has led the Panthers to victory in the past. Clausen has not. Starting Moore is a good idea based on the chance that he may play at a high level, as he has proven he can do.

Moore's extremely poor play can be partly attributed to the Panther's O-line getting raped in pass defense, especially against the Gaints. Kalil looked like a 3 year old trying to stop his father from going to work in that game. Moore was terrified during the Gaints game (imo), and this resulted in him making decisions that no rational human being would make. His decisions were fear based, and therefore mostly wrong. Comically wrong. He sustained a concussion near the end of the Giants game, and clearly wasn't comfortable from that point on.

Moore is getting a second chance, and I agree with the decision. Moore will have a chance to play like he did last season, cool, calm, and collect. He had a smooth rythm to his play last season (barring the Pats game), and he was able to carve up good secondaries. He wasn't afraid last season, and if he isn't afraid in the 49ers game, then I think he'll play well. If you go back and watch the Pats game, Moore was out of rythm and jittery in the first half, but as the game wore on he got into a rythm and started making a lot of good throws. I think the 49ers game may be the same way. He'll start out poorly, but if our defense can keep it close, I think he'll give us a chance to win.


Called it.
