when are we ever going to have the chance to draft someone with luck's potential again? we are going to pass him up for someone we hope doesn't suck when he only cost us a mid 2nd rounder and $2.5mil? we're going to pass him up for someone who hasn't had become entrenched in the starting role? we're going to require the new HC to stick with some guy who very well may not fit into his offense? that he didn't draft?
we have very little invested in clausen. if we have a chance to get an upgrade at the most important position on the team, we need to take it.
we're going to be going with a young QB who will likely become the starter for years to come, one way or the other. why wouldn't you want to make sure you had the best possible player to fill that role?
the best argument for sticking with clausen will be what he does the rest of the season. it will be his ability to take us out of the running for the #1 spot. if he can't accomplish that, then he has done very little/nothing to convince this team that they can feel good about passing on luck.
his targets aren't bad. his RBs aren't bad. he just has to find a way to get the ball in the WRs hands, get into the endzone, and keep the defense off the field and rested. he has the weapons he needs. it's up to him to use them.
