He will be our best quarterback in franchise history. Better than Delhomme. Will people quit the bashing on Clausen. Remember that he's only a rookie. Even Favre didn't have a good rookie season so quit all the drama with Luck. Luck will only be as good as Bradford. So yall peeps that keeps bashing on Clausen, don't become Clausen's fans overnight when he turns into "Favre". So prove me wrong in two yrs that Clausen is a bust.

i have yet to understand how people continue to evaluate a rookie's performance based on the overall pathetic performance of the team as a whole.

I agree. And I've read the same B.S. so long that I'm starting to believe it.

He drops it down when he wants to get the ball out really quickly.

Same way you could tell Jarrett was garbage even with Delhomme throwing him the ball last year. Same way teams evaluate prospects from spread and gimmicky college offenses. It makes evaluation harder but not impossible, basically just ignore overall production and stats and look at the skillset.

Right now alot his problems are typical rookie mistakes and they look alot worse being in the terrible system/playcalling/supporting cast that we have. Footwork is bad, needs to sell the play action much better, looking off defenses and not staring down receivers to name a few. These things can probably be developed in a year or two, the main thing that worries me as I mentioned is that low sidearm throwing motion. Seriously doubt he makes any noise in the NFL if he doesn't fix that.

When we got our QB coach from Cleveland he stated he wasn't going to attempt to change Delhomme's throwing motion, what makes you think he will change Clausen's? Wait... why are we paying him again?

Yeah, it's pretty bad when balls are barely skimming over the top of linemans heads. It's generally not something that's corrected very easily, though, which is why it's my main issue with him.

When has our current coaching staff ever developed a QB, though? We'll see how he responds with new coaches and a new system in place. Assuming our new HC doesn't run him out of town to bring in his own guy, which is very possible.
