Drafting 3 1/2 QBs in 2 years.

Top priority: QB

2nd: DE, OT

3rd: DT, LBer, OG, C

Once you have that strong core established then you start adding in the skill positions and playmakers.

Let your franchise QB make your WRs look better than they are.

Let your dominating OLine make your RBs look better than they are.

Let your elite DLine make your secondary look better than it is.

How to build a championship team according to me at least.

Clausen made some quality throws today, but he also made some poor throws. He is a rookie, so that is what can be expected. There are a few problems that need to be addressed: OG and WR...Clausen threw some great passes (the 60 yd pass to LaFell), but the receivers flat out dropped them or made no effort to catch them. While Clausen has struggled, the receivers and o-line are terrible.

I give the receivers a pass - they're rookies and they're only going to get better. The O-line is terrible though.

The kid has had no help yet he's taking all the blame. It's ridiculous.

I would put DT alone at 2nd and LB shouldn't be on the list at all. Plus with the money we have for FA. We can get a few Dt and a OG. I would draft a DT in the 3rd as well.

I don't give Clausen all the blame, the offense as a whole is horrible. But twice today I saw Clausen miss an out route. Any starting QB should be able to throw that.

Also, after about 10-12 weeks into the season I personally stop giving rookies an excuse. I feel they have had enough time to stop making the same mistakes. That is just me tho.

The Oline has also been hurt by injuries. With the players that will come back next year and adding depht in FA and later in the draft. We should be good again on the Line. But Jimmy might not get any better.

If you have a great offensive line but your QB sucks you aren't good to go.

You give me a crappy QB and a Great OL. I'll beat your crappy OL and Great QB 9 times out of 10.

See Mark Rypien.

I just dont see how you can judge a qb off of one year with a bad group of receivers and a bad o-line...he made some nice throws and some bad ones, just like a rookie normally does

I disagree. The crappy QB will miss wide open receivers when the line gives him time. The great QB will know he only has 2 seconds to get rid of the ball and throw it quick.

He constantly misses an out route. That isn't a rookie mistake.

Yep

When Clausen has time and an open WR he is iffy at best. He makes really bad throws that should be easy.

Amazing that he still gets the rookie pass for such terrible play
