Awesomeness!!

Is there anything Jimmy Clausen does right?

as much as i hated delhomme in his last 2 years here, he at least took shots downfield. it pains me to say it, but i'd rather have #17 under center than the pickle.

In the games he's started he doesnt throw many ints.

because he doesn't take chances. checkdowns don't cut it in this league. when it is 3rd and 17, a 5 yard checkdown rarely gets it done.

he's thrown more TDs to opposing teams than he has his own. that folks is a sign of a garbage QB.

lol didn't he get picked on a checkdown against the Seahawks? I almost laughed at that one.

He can throw the ball to the sideline pretty well.

He just does not take chances at throwing the long ball.

He seems to give the impression that he does not have adult level social skills, including leadership skills.

He needs to see a Sports Psychologist.

I wouldn't say 5 INTS in 7 starts is good. It isn't horrific like we have seen but that isn't really good. He has 7 turnovers in his 7 starts. A turnover a game isn't protecting the ball...that is actually high considering the fact he isn't throwing much or downfield.

He has 9 turnovers. 8 starts this year.

We've grown accustomed to much, much worse. 9 turnovers in 8 starts for us is like manna from heaven.

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
