He is going nowhere. He won't be traded this year you can take it to the bank, seriously.


Yeah I know. What I am saying is that Clausen will likely get a chance to prove some worth no matter who we draft. I wouldn't be shocked if he starts our first game. The Panthers would like for him to generate some value for down the road if they want to move him. Or of course he could always blossom into a pro bowler. But he will get a shot even if we draft a QB.

Given all the injuries to the Qb position most years for the Panthers, it is unlikely that the starter in the first game will last the season. No matter who starts,I wouldn't be surprised if we have 2 or 3 guys take snaps at Qb for us.

I don't see him starting just to generate value. If he starts it will be because he is our best opinion. If they start Clausen when another QB looks better, pretty sure our coaches will lose the entire locker room. That's not a good way to start the season.

Considering he has one year under his belt I imagine a lot of people would think Clausen is the best option no matter who we would have drafted even if had been Luck. I would have felt like Clausen should start even if Luck did come out. They are not going to bail on Jimmy Clausen but I feel like they aren't going to sit back and cross there fingers and hope he works out either.

A new coaching staff wants to be pro active on this. The longer they stall on drafting a QB the higher the probability they are unemployed in three years.

Any QB will need time to flourish and I feel that Rivera would rather start that developmental process sooner rather than later. If he waits till next year, then whatever QB he gets will likely need two years to really develop, if that is the case then he might not be here to enjoy the fruits of that labor. That is just the nature of the NFL these days.
