I'm in the "hope he does well, but I'm not confident in him" boat.

I admit I was one of the people who were quick to criticize Jimmy during the season, but I know that our inept coaching staff (and our young, inexperienced, often injured, and all around terrible team members) was a major factor in why he played the way he did. I think that if he starts most of the games next season with good play calling and coaching, with a roster upgrade, we'll really know how good he is.

blinded optimism.

I hope he does well too. But I just don't see anything in Jimmy Clausen that is going to make him our guy. I'm glad Rivera isn't throwing him under the bus like Foxy did.

By definition, the jury is still out on any 2nd year player... it takes at least 3 years to fully evaluate a rookie.

It used to be unthinkable that a rookie QB could have any success, then we had a run on guys like Ryan, Flacco, Sanchez, Bradford, etc who experienced some success... so now the expectation is that a rookie QB should be ready to play right away or he sucks.

I don't know if Clausen will ever be a viable NFL QB, but I do know it's too early to decide that now.

So we made need 4-5 years to determine he stinks?

It's not a matter of feeling, it's a matter of fact.
