this is one area where I kinda disagree.
It depends how we win and how many... one where we win in spite of him isn't really going to convince me of him. If we win because of Clausen, if he really shows something, he may secure his job... and plus, we'll probably be knocked out of the Luck sweepstakes, so then it goes to Newton versus Clausen. But again, what have I seen that makes me think that is possible?? Nothing.
so I'm just going to enjoy tomorrow's game and relax, knowing that if we see improvement, good, and if we don't, at least there's a nice draft pick waiting for us.
Yeah, as I've said, I don't see us winning anymore, so I think we're spinning our wheels discussing the possibilities, lol. BUT, even the games we've been close in with Clausen as the starter, I think would've been won in spite of him for the most part (except for the last 2 minutes of each game lol). So, I really don't see him making a huge leap from the "improvement" we saw from him last week and leading us to a victory on his back. He's really struggling.
But, I don't think I clearly expressed my main point, which P55 touched on... Clausen will still be here, most likely, regardless of what we do with the #1 pick. Whether we took Luck or Newton, Clausen will probably still be here, and will have to compete with that guy to start next year. I just don't see him going from how he's looked throughout his PT this season to carrying our team to ANY wins the final few weeks of this season. But, we'll see.
You got to stop thinking either or and think both. Nothing wrong with 2 guys battling it out. If clausen is a first rounder that fell, then he should be fine. But if he isn't, then he will be around for 4 years to learn to play like one or be the backup. With our team history, it isn't like all the quarterbacks don't get to play.
