Rub my magic lamp and turn Clausen into an equivalently aged Dan Marino.

If a QB I really like falls into the 3rd or 4th I'd take a chance on one there... Probably cut Pike, bring the rookie, Clausen, and two veterans to camp.

Let Clausen compete against the two veterans in camp. Best two get carried into the regular season, likely favoring Clausen and one of the veterans. Rookie rounds out the third spot.

If I don't like any of the rookies, I go into camp with Pike, Clausen, and two veterans. Practice squad Pike, carry Clausen and two veterans into the season with whatever depth chart camp determines.

Cut Pike, Bring in Gradkowski or Palmer and draft Newton.

Let Clausen, Moore, Palmer/Gradkowski,Newton battle it out.

Get a vet, probably Palmer. Let clausen ride the bench for half the season and develop with the mentorship and new QB coach. Then put him back if he's shown he can do it. He needs experience to grow, like JR said, but only after proper development. Put him in hte bullring till he's stop flinching with the threat of any contact.j/k

Wonder how much Plamer would go for.

I would make a trade with Green Bay for the rights to Matt Flynn.
Something about the kid i like. Also sign Volek, every young team
needs a vet QB in the wings.

1.) Draft Cam Newton with the first overall pick. Just because we missed on Andrew Luck doesn't mean that we shouldn't address our biggest need, and there aren't too many players that are worth the number one. Fairley reminds me of Albert Haynesworth. If however we can trade down and pick up a second rounder, I wouldn't mind waiting a year to draft our guy and giving Clausen another year at the helm.

2.) Have Jimmy start the year. It is impossible to tell who Clausen really is from last year alone. He was awful, but I feel like we learned nothing about him and coming into this year he will essentially be a rookie. If he's really as bad as he looked then we will find out very quickly.

3.) Sign a veteran? I suppose this would be a good thing to do in case Jimmy falters hard and if we don't think Cam is ready yet. Someone like Jon Kitna or Shaun Hill would be ideal.

Whether or not we spend our first on a QB this year on Cam Newton, or next year on different guy, Jimmy should continue playing and we should pick up a serviceable veteran/backup.

I'd draft Newton overall, and start Clausen for the year and trade him for draft picks. And Pike can be Career backup for Newton.

Trade down out of #1 and pick up a 2nd rounder at least. Trade our 4th rounder for a Vet to man the station for 2-3 years. Take a QB like Andy Dalton and groom him for 3 years then let him play like GB did with Rogers

hold Andrew Luck's family ransom and force his ass to retroactively declare for the draft.
