I'm pretty damn sure those rookie WR's had something to do with it, along with the O-line not protecting particularly well, very questionable play calling, and the running game sucking for much of the time. You're acting as if Jimmy was surrounded by pro bowlers who played well every week, and that's not even close to being the case here. Everybody on this offense made mistakes, and Smitty was actually one of the worst offenders at times.
I'm not. Those crappy rookie WRs got into the endzone at a good rate when Clausen wasn't starting.....especially for a running team.
Jimmy was surrounded by Pro Bowlers, in fact he had 2 on his OL and Steve Smith has been to several. Yet all you want to do is talk about how Jimmy was doomed to fail. There is blame to go around....Jimmy gets the bulk for simply being a very bad rookie QB.
