CRA

Why the pass game isn't working

CRA did you walk in on Pickles giving you mom the cucumber in the caboose or something? Did he offer you a cucumber water or sandwich later? I mean really it's getting old. We get it you don't like Jimmy.

I actually like Jimmy. I am not one of the idiots bashing the other stuff about him that doesn't relate to what he does on the field. Jimmy has handled himself very well considering what all he is dealing with......and that is a big positive (one I think contradicts a lot of the bogus rumors about him pre draft).

I don't like the way he plays QB. We could be a great deal better with some slight change from Clausen in a few areas. Pardon me for wanting to talk about those areas. Fox/Davidson aren't gonna change to make us better over the next two weeks....Jimmy can.

I'm not praising Moore. Moore played like utter crap. It wasn't the OL's fault or Davidsons. Moore flat out made poor throws this year. Sure he had things working against him like Jimmy. But Moore stunk this year. Moore did not play like he did in prior years. He flat out missed throws. Moore attempted to run a offense....so I give him credit for that.

Jimmy isn't protecting the ball. Jimmy can't make basic plays. I would like for that to change. I am not obsessed like many here, in fact I probably want Jimmy to win more than most here. I wouldn't be upset if they went 2-0 to finish the season.

But the biggest issue on the team is going to be talked about......repeatedly. That is normal.

You're comparing them. It seemed obvious that you were trying to show one as superior to the other. If you look at the adjusted stats, they actually are quite similar. The biggest difference is that one has had 3+ years to adjust to the pro game, the other is the rookie that you want to throw under the bus.

AND I don't agree that it's the biggest issue on the team. It's only the one that people think represents the quickest fix. Any inexperienced QB would have similar issues.

Not really. I am saying Clausen needs to use the middle of the field. period. OL, Davidson, rookie....non of those are reasons for him not doing such. Moore was brought up here to show what Davidson is doing w/ Steve Smith this season. Smitty made those plays for Moore. He can do it for Clausen. Those are the routes Smitty is now running in Carolina.

what is the biggest noncoach issue then?

Protecting the ball has gotten us a safe 2-12 record. Clausen, more so Davidson and Fox have not taken one chance this year. This year was poo from the get go and they played if safe, for what reason? And now Clausen could be ruined and he might never recover. I do think he will be a serviceable BU, more than Carr that's for sure. But it is looking like if Luck comes out, we will get him, so it's time to move on from the bashing of Clausen.

until we have the #1 pick.....I think we are getting ahead of ourselves. It is looking more and more like Atl will have nothing to play for week 17. Clausen could easily be competing for the starter job next season against someone not named Luck.

Assuming we can beat the Falcon backups. But you are right, it will come down to the Saints Falcons game.

tru the cardinals d is abysmal this year so Atlanta might have a shot to still beat us. The only thing I might not worry about as much is that I highly doubt Denver drafts Andrew luck. But to not be the first pick in the draft Luck probably would stay in school if denver gets the first pick.
