According to Darin Gantt of the Rock Hill Herald, Jimmy Clausen is still part of the Panthers' "long-term plan."

Gantt predicts that the Panthers will sign a veteran to paper over the quarterback position, and hope Clausen makes strides on the sideline. Ideally, it would be an aggressive veteran willing to teach. Clausen's skill set is above average, but he was too often scared to throw downfield as a rookie.

If anything, this implies that he will not play for the next couple years.

winning plan! sit around behind some vet and hope that clausen develops into a good QB!

so what happens if he doesn't?

how long of a chance to we give him as a starter before we figure out he isn't worth the start?

what do we do in the meantime?

if clausen doesn't turn out to be a good QB, then we have to start the whole thing over again and go through another 3 years of the same crap.

Is anyone really surprised here? Gantt's been tweeting this all along.

They're not going to judge Clausen off of last year alone. He'll get a shot in camp but I think there is a bit too much emphasis around here about being part of the long term plan meaning that they're going to sit him for 3 years than throw him out there... He may just end up a career backup, and they're not going to pass on talent for him forever.

However, everything is still on the table. We'll see who is available in the draft and in free agency.

I still believe that Clausen can be a good QB, but he will never be a star. You have to gamble a little bit if you want to find that guy.

the Panthers aren't just going to have blinders on for the next couple years. You can evaluate a quarterback's improvements in camp, practice, preseason, and any playing time he does get. You don't dismiss him now and you consider him an option but you bring in competition from other sources to make the team better.

the Panthers made the pick.. I don't understand why you would cast out a rookie QB who had to play for offensive guru's under the likes of Fox and Davidson..

he may never be a star, but the best thing you do in this situation is let him sit the bench for 2 years and see what you get afterwards...

I wouldn't solely rely on him, go out and make something else happen.. if you feel there is a QB in this draft, get him, if not, you go from there and try to find one..

you have to bring someone in that can play the qb spot at a high level, either threw fa or the draft.

Gannt is just twisting words around.

We aren't going to start him but there is no reason to cut him yet either due to the slim chance he develops.

Yes technically that is part of the "long term plan" but in a roundabout way
