Who had the most accurate scouting report on Clausen?

39 posts in this topic

I was a Clausen Homer. I was fooled into believing he was going to be our first true francshise qb. Can anybody remember someone not neccessarily bashing Clausen blindly but accurately predicting what he has become in the nfl?

Nope not at all. Everyone was sippin' the Clausen Kool-aid.

Fiz

I forget exactly what I said but basically yeah I called this the second he was drafted.

I think I bashed the kid and said he wouldn't make a good pro right after the pick but that was still my deep down hatred for Notre Dame leaking out. I honestly thought the search was over.....

I was glad he dropped to us.

I didn't know if he would make a good pro or not, but I "knew" he'd be able to sit on the bench at least a year and learn behind a solid QB in Moore, and maybe in the future he'd pan out to be good for us.

Of course his career isn't over, and I wouldn't be surprised at all at him coming out as the opening day starter next year, but at this point..

    • A hot steak straight from the grill tastes 1000 times better than any of that stuff to me. I've tried to lie to myself and tell myself it doesn't but it won't work, lol.

    • I like Funchess, but it wasn't that long ago there were huge threads in here about moving KB to TE, trading him or cutting him. I knew throwing in Steve Smith would cause people to compare KB and Smith (not my intention) and not take a real look at how well KB has actually done. I love Benjamin and after two years (one rookie and one post ACL) I think we've seen him dominate enough games to not poo on him as much as we do.

      I want Funchess to take the next step but I sure don't think of him as capable of replacing Benjamin as our top WR. If he gets to that point then god help the defenses we face.

      One note on the lab disappearances last year. He was coming of an ACL injury which normally means your first year back isn't as good. Wes Welker is a guy I remember that had the same injury and came back a bit earlier and wasn't the same after a 10 month rehab. 40 less catches and 500 less yards. KB had 13 months but you could see how well he started and I think he was going too hard too soon. He looked dominant his first two weeks against Denver and SF. After the season Proehl admitted they thought he was ready too soon and that the strength coach who said he wasn't ready was right.

      I'm expecting big things out of KB this year and I'm on his bandwagon already and I really hope the memes have him motivated with a huge chip on his shoulder. I also hope that our new weapons open things up compared to last year where defenses knew we weren't throwing it to our WR3, TE2 and RB. Cover Olsen, KB and Ginn and blitz the rest. Cam didn't stand a chance. I think we may have opened up our WR3 and RB now.

    • To each his own. I think they are supremely flavorful and delicious. Romaine, raw spinach leaves, and cabbage (shredded or in the form of slaw) are pretty much "accepted" ways to eat, but my wife and I (and sometimes my teen son) have just taken it a step further. And let's not talk about all the delicious red, yellow and green peppers. Yummy! Not saying this is you, but sometimes you just have to reprogram your mind and your taste buds. Each veggie and fruit has a flavor and aroma all its own. We destroy so much of the natural flavor and aroma during the cooking process. BTW, nutritionally, blending is superior to juicing.
