Smith wanted Clausen to apologize to the guys in the huddle

You wouldn't believe it now, but when I called it 6-8 weeks ago no one believed me. They called me crazy. It's funny how everyone's hindsight is 20/20

I can't believe there are any left, it's honestly amazing.

I'm just waiting for the team to sign Moore for next year so I can go perfect on my predictions/insight into this team.

I have literally been laughed at for each one and they have all come true.

My first post when Clausen was drafted was that he would bring this team more embarrassment than production, that prediction started my undefeated streak.

WOW! Mr. Cleo, can I get your prediction on the upcoming powerball numbers?

It's obvious Smitty has had an off-year, but he wasn't off today, he hardly had a chance to be. So, sorry... find another route to deflect criticism off of Clausen's shitty performances.

I've said a million times, any true fan of this team was pulling for him to be "the guy," but it's clear he's not. I'm just not understanding all the slurping going on over someone who has shown such little promise or ability.

KK acknowledged Clausen is bad, but just said Smitty needs to chill, which is pretty fair-minded. But, like I said, Smitty didn't have a chance to play bad today, and that badly thrown ball was not his fault. The issue here is why people are still laying themselves on the tracks over Clausen? I don't get it.

I don't know anything about the lottery, but I do know football.

Smitty just cannot carry bad QBs like he used to

Smitty had dropped 7 balls before today, which was tied for 9th in the league for most balls dropped.

Not excusing Clausen's play, but people are blaming Clausen for Smittys below par play just because they are turning Clausen into a scapegoat.

I am starting to really feel for Clausen. This guy is a kid, who has been thrown into a pretty horrid situation and everyone is turning on him. This season may have destroyed any self confidence he ever had, could well have ruined his career. I can't really believe this kid is the player that was so highly touted.

Oh whatever dude he's a professional athlete. He needs to step up to the plate and take charge. I could care less if he throws picks, that's what rookies do. But this chicken, candyass play is unacceptable. No one expects him to be Tom Brady, just get out there and play and sling the ball around. At least show that you're trying to be the leader that you always talk about being for this team.

Smitty is another of our MANY embarrassments. He makes one nine yard catch and acts like some ubangi epileptic.

That's what gets said after you realize a bust is a bust.

There are certain rules in football...

"Fall on the ball"- don't try to pick it up, let the people that run the ball do that.

"Don't run backwards"- take what you can get and play another down.

"If you can touch it, you can catch it"- otherwise, you'd be a DB.

If you look at the disparity between Smith's numbers with Moore and Clausen you can see why they blame Clausen. It's pretty black and white.

He's a 23 year old man who has had everything handed to him in life and is finally facing some adversity, don't feel too bad for him. You can't believe it because as has been reported before, some people were paid to hype him, inflate his draft stock. Don't believe everything everyone tells you and do some analyzing yourself and you'll see the truth.

Should add:

"If you can't throw it, don't play QB"

Just thought I would throw this out there.

Reggie Wayne, Terrell Owens, Chad Ochocinco, Miles Austin, Pierre Garcon, Tony Gonzales, Andre Johnson, Brandon Marshall, and Wes Welker are some of the receivers with more drops than Steve Smith, among others.
