Smith wanted Clausen to apologize to the guys in the huddle

178 posts in this topic

Lets blame Clausen for some of the issues, but let's not forget we are probably the only offense in the league that doesn't have designed plays for our best player. We don't run pick plays, rubs, or misdirection plays to get Smith in favorable matchups. We say Smith get open, but you only have 3 seconds to do that. Then we tell Clausen you have 3 seconds to get the ball to Smith who is in double coverage on a play that is poorly designed with an Oline that's going to block poorly.

Clausen isn't helping Smith, but Davidson isn't helping Clausen help Smith either.

Imagine the career Smitty would've had if he was a Patriot. Lynch talked about this during the game as well, saying the attempt towards Barnidge (which was a horrible throw regardless) was mind boggling - basically he said it was not creative at all.

Surprise, we suck across the board. OL. Coaching. Jimmy.

Don't think he gets double covered these days.

Corner with safety slid over top is still double coverage.

I guess SS is a Clausen hater too huh? Or is he just a Moore slurper?

No one brought up your boyfriend but you.

What good does an apology do? Keep the apology and play better!

I just want to know did he do it? Did he apologize?

Edit: NVM, I see he apologized to Beason first, causing Smith to get upset. I thought Smith told him to apologize to the team and he apologized. If he would've done that I would've called Clausen a b*tch.

Some background on it:

http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/recap?gid=20101212029

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)—It was cold and damp, more than half the seats were empty and an infighting, one-win team playing out the string was on the other side of the field.

...

Abraham and Kroy Biermann(notes) each had two sacks, Peterson later picked off Jimmy Clausen(notes) and the Falcons became the latest team to shut down the league’s worst offense—a team that’s now begun to point fingers, too.

Clausen, the rookie whose introduction to the NFL has been rough, threw for only 107 yards and extended his streak of passes without a TD to 193. He apologized to linebacker Jon Beason(notes) for his play after the game, drawing the wrath of receiver Steve Smith, who had another quiet day.

“If you’re going to apologize, you know, you should apologize to the people in the huddle with you,” Smith said. “He has a lot to learn. He ain’t at Notre Dame anymore that’s for sure.”

Stewart rushed for a season-best 133 yards, but his fumble set the tone for another miserable afternoon as the Panthers (1-12) dropped their seventh straight to stay on track to get the top pick in the draft.

“Everybody should be apologizing about something,” left tackle Jordan Gross(notes) said. “This is a mess as far as our production on the field.”

...

With bundled-up owner Jerry Richardson watching stone-faced from his open-air box in the end zone, he saw thousands of empty blue seats and a team in disarray after his offseason cost-cutting.

The few fans that were on hand—the stadium was somewhere between a third and half full at the start—at least were making light of the situation. The loudest cheer early was when referee Clete Blakeman announced, “That is the end of the first quarter.”

At that point, the Panthers were being outgained 133-6. They didn’t get a first down—which also produced jeers—until early in the second quarter.

Clausen, now 0-7 as a starter, completed 14 of 24 passes and was sacked five times. He has one TD and seven picks on the season.

“I don’t feel like I’m playing to my level of capability that I expect of myself,” Clausen said, explaining his apology to the defense. “I thought that was the right thing to do.”

SAD.

Clausen stinks, but what's scary is the idea that he is better than the rest of the QBs on the roster. Ick...

That idea is incorrect. The only one he's better than is Pike.

You are exactly correct sir. He is the only player left on the team with even a shred of leadership abilities.
