So you are saying if we win in spite of Clausen early, he might build confidence and not totally fug up our season later on? We should just stick him at WR and run the wildcat until his confidence is up.

Why not stick a trained monkey out there?

Exactly, then you went off the deep end. Coming off a 2 win season, Jimmy's going to start tossing the ball around like Aaron Rodgers out of the gate...really? Even if the Jimmy wanted to, do you honestly think the coaching staff is going to allow it? I'm not saying Fox-ball will be back, but I think the number of pass plays will be scaled back early on to what Chud would consider ideal.

I feel sure since Clausen,since was a 2 nd rd draft choice will be evaluated this season and given a chance, even if it is a backup role,that is the good news.

That bad news is,i wouldn't advice fans to purchase a Clausen jersey at this time because his future as a Carolina Panther could be short lived.

Funny how most threads on this board evolve into the argument over whether or not Pickles is worth another shot.

I think they will demand he comes out tossing the ball like Aaron Rodgers. Considering he'll be doing it for the scout team and preparing our defense for the likes of Ryan, Brees, Manning, Rodgers himself, Schaub, he better air it out in practice or our DBs will be shell shocked come game time.

Really only thing that's got a huge 'question mark' looming. All other things need relative tweeking (DT aside). That's the reason most threads evlove into a QB or DT discussion even though it mostly likely started as something else. Hey, we could suck eveywhere and the topics would be more diversified!!! :D

how does it make sense for a team that had the worst offense by far in the league and one of the worst offenses ever ignore the offense with the first pick overall?

Agreed. With QB as a biggest question mark, all discussions will and should end up here! It's hard for any of us to have faith in teh Jimmy after this horrible excuse for a season...but the fact remains, we still don't know about him. I do like the fact that before his surgery he came back to Charlotte to work on his game, and I presume he met up with some of the new staff. I'm on the wagon that says Jimmy showed ZERO ability to lead our offense and he showed no promise or special play ability...but I also have hated Fox's ability to groom young offensive talent as well. I'm really on the fence here, with my heart fully hoping Jimmy pans out to be great but deep down I'm also just hoping he really isn't a terrible as his showing was last year. Realistically, how many mid 2nd round QB's come in and start early and eat the world? (like my Jimmy eat world reference?)

O-line was above average

:skep: They certainly didn't PLAY like it. The injuries we sustained there this past season translated to the OL play well below average for the most part.

We already addressed this issue by firing Fox.

IMO Rayor, it wouldn't. If Luck had declared, this wouldn't even be a discussion. The problem this year, as everyone knows, is there is no offensive player worthy of a top 5 pick this year, let alone the #1 overall. Of course, all of this could change after the combine and individual workout. However, I suspect if none of the prospects pulls ahead of the pack, considering our new coaching staff, I wouldn't be suprised to see us go defense in the 1st round (whether we trade down or stay put).

If there were a top flight QB in the draft, I would agree with you.

But, Green WILL NOT make that much difference next season.
