So his inevitable 49 QB rating can hush the App State homers who think he's the savior and is better than Michael Vick. Funny how they say Clausen can't see over the line but somehow Armanti in his diminuitive stature could? Look I'm all for finding the solution on our current roster. But saying Clausen wouldn't cut it with the '08 Lions or Moore is the worst QB ever while touting Edwards' 7 career rushing yards is retarded.

Go Panthers.:cheers2:

Why would you ever hope for the failure of a player on your team?

I would never wish a player to do poorly... but I can wish for fans to shut up about him.

What would you do if he did well? God forbid someone is a fan of someone on the team.

I don't think anyone here wants him to be any less then Steve Smith or Desean Jackson reincarnated, but he isn't a QB in the NFL and our QB performance would get much worse with him under center. Did the kid even take snaps under center his entire career at App.....

Would you still not root for him just because you want to hate on "App State Homers"?

I said I was in favor of finding our answer on our current roster.

Do you think he'd go 300 yds 4 TD? I really just don't.

Our QB performance would get worse? You really just said that? How is that possible?

They would have to change the play calling to suit his abilities since he hasn't been practicing under center in a run first offense, and I know the creativity involved is beyond our coaching staff. But with both our starting runners out, they have to do something.

So basically you're relegating the answer to Pike. Cause that's about your only option left.

I'd cheer for him and wait for the day when the App Homers get tired of shoving it everyones faces that he was good. *shrugs*

And for the record, Pike and Armanti played about the same style offense in college.

Exactly what do you want them to do to adjust the playcalling and take advantage of our strengths and playmakers?? Run the fuging triple option....

If Clausen plays and throws for 250 yards half the board will proclaim him savior, the other half will say "AE would've thrown for 251."

Give Edwards a shot then. If he throws 5 picks we can say "yes, you can get worse."
If he shines, keep starting him.

they did... which is why I am hesitant that either of them will do well. To be honest, I think Armanti has a better chance because I think he is physically gifted in a way that would allow him to extend plays. However, his height is a concern for me; people say "it's just an inch" but every bit of it matters.

I'm not saying don't give him a shot, and I'm not saying we have a great option on the roster, just saying I don't have high expectations and hearing that he is better than Vick before he's played at all kinda annoys me.
