The Pro Clausen Thread....

276 posts in this topic

David Carr had some mediocre years and has thrown for 65 TDs in the NFL.

This is a little different than being inactive on a 3-17 team and losing your job to freaking Derek Anderson.

0% chance he does anything else in the NFL.

You can book that.

David Carr today is nothing like the guy that played in Houston. Did you not watch him in Carolina.....or San Fran. He still can find employment despite serving no real purpose.

It made sense for Clausen to lose his job to Anderson. The role isn't about ebing able to play football in Carolina. DA knows the playbook. That simple. He at least as that to offer Cam on Sundays.

This thread is still true. Jimmy is a competitor. He's an accurate passer. He'll catch on somewhere. His career isn't over yet.

David Carr showed flashes now and then, Jimmy never did. If he had been a sixth round pick from North Dakota State and played like that nobody would ever defend him. But because he's a name guy people hold out hope. When you watch the tape and really break down his play it's obvious he's just not an NFL quarterback; not mentally, not physically, not in any way. What's the best play he ever made? The under thrown duck to a wide open Stewart for his first TD against the Saints? The sideline throw to LaFell that set up Kasay's miss against the Browns? Either way, when you think about it, you could count his really good plays on one hand.

what Carr did 6 years ago means nothing. He is much worse now than when he was a rookie. Point remains, you can be utter crap....and find a job as a NFL QB. Look at what Delhomme was paid to go to Clev......and was done after Tommy John. Look what Denver gave up for Brady Quinn.....

Clausen will hang around the NFL in some form for a couple years.

over the summer some friends and i played flag football at the beach, we were one guy short from having 5 on 5. A buddy noticed Jimmy walking towards us and he goes hey guys, mind if I play I see you need one more?

Too bad we didn't have enough to play. Weather was freakin perf.

i think this post is silly of course we dont know what he could be but the future isn't looking good. Maybe he'll get a look in a few years like Kevin Kolb is with the cards. If anything we can say his opportunities to prove himself will be rare so he better not screw it up when it comes.
