Clausen not part of the team...

95 posts in this topic

So this is more of a personal observation. Jimmy's main problem right now is that he has zero chemistry with this team. He really does not act as if he is a member on the team let alone a leader of it. I don't see him with any kind of positive interactions with anyone. Most guys on the sidelines have their clique, their friends they talk to and such. Not Jimmy. Poor guy still looks like the new kid in school.

I know, I know, it doesn't excuse his performance on the field. But believe it or not, these are actual human beings out there on the field. Little things like these do matter.

Someone give the kid a hug.

I noticed after the 4th down sack 89 went over to him and appeared to be trying to talk him up. Pickles just started staring off into the distance.

Now 89 could have been telling him he sucks, but still kid has got to have some fire.

My buddy's teenage daughter thinks he's cute. She'd hug him. Not so sure my buddy would.

He came in to this season pretty brash. Now he's being humbled. Not an easy thing for any of us.

Still, adversity reveals character.

89 does not talk him up, 89 points out his mistakes.

In a "You suck go home" or a "This is what you did, this is what you should have done" manner?

Clausen has zero respect for Smitty.

I have never actually witnessed Clausen show frustration. You know...hammerfisting the ground when getting sacked etc.

Smitty is a hard guy to win his respect. Clausen's handlers need to walk him thru how to deal with others.

I feel bad for the kid, but he's got to be more assertive. You can't be that shy kid in school, and be the QB. That chemistry that he doesnt have with the team, man, he should've gotten that squared away during the offseason/preseason. The kid lacks confidence and it's shown all season.

Why O why didn't we get Golden Tate? At least he would have had one friend for a month.

    • With all respect, the issue with your premise, Nanuq, is an assumption on your part.  I'm not of the mindset that "Hillary managed to lose." Once you've committed to that belief, there are few avenues to explore with respect to the future of the party. While there were definite missteps and poor decisions her campaign took along the way, there were also a few outside factors at play which helped sabotage the election. Look, the DNC has to answer some difficult questions and they also have to decide how they're going to approach 2018 and 2020. Tom Perez, although I liked the guy in the Obama administration, I don't care for his role in the DNC and I'd prefer him as a sort of interim guy until they party charts its course. Ease up, Nanuq. They'll come around. Trump is gonna Trump and the DNC already has enough ammunition to get them through the next 6 election cycles.... provided they use it wisely.
