Only reason I posted the stats, cuz of being saying Clausen sucks. If people watched much football or werent clausen haters these stats wouldnt need to be posted.
Biggest complaints I hear about Clausen
1.He's a checkdown machine
these stats show you against the same opponents vs. the 2 other rookie qb's he has a higher yards per average throw and throws more yards per game.
That's the biggest complaint you hear about Clausen?
What about the fact that he doesn't throw TDs, has a terrible throwing motion, leaves the pocket too early, doesn't move the offense when the game still matters, is wildly inaccurate, doesn't push the ball upfield, etc.
Stats can say that he had a 38 yard pass to Goodson. If you watched the game you know it should have been a pick 6.
That's what I mean when I say stats don't matter and you don't need them to judge Clausen. Comparing him in some handpicked way to other rookies vs 1 or 2 common opponents is ridiculous.
