Jenson's OTB: Panthers Source on Edwards, Clausen

OTB w/Brett Jensen claims to have some insider news from a Panthers source. Take this for what it's worth, which may be NOTHING...

http://charlotte.cbslocal.com/2011/03/02/panther-insider-news/

Think we can get Palmer for a pick swap and our fourth. Not sure if it's likely but they think it COULD happen.

Coaching staff is smarter, better prepared. The Panthers are much happier with these guys already.

Problem with Armanti Edwards is that he got ZERO help from coaching staff or anyone last year. He got no help and hung him out to dry because Fox did NOT want him. He is NOT scared. Just zero help. Armanti will HAVE to show improvement this year but he'll get help in that area. Was JR the reason Armanti was drafted? Source says no comment.

Both the Panthers and scouts from other teams also believe that Jimmy Clausen is better than all but 2 of the quarterbacks in this draft: Newton and Gabbert. Better than Locker, Mallet, Ponder, etc. They think that Clausen is the guy that can win and that he got very little help/training from the staff last year. He is in there every day trying to get better, studying the position, even now (when he's in Charlotte). Source says Clausen is one of the toughest players on the team and claims he didn't complain once. Says his arm is as strong as Hasselbeck/Brady's. Supposedly they firmly and completely believe they can win with Jimmy Clausen.

My take:

I've thought the Panthers felt this way all along and it's why I don't think they go quarterback.

Also, credit goes to drnll4 for pointing this out.

edit: added palmer part, what Mr. Scot pointed out.

Just goes to show you that this draft is full of terrible QB's.

Last year at this time Basanez was going to become the franchise's best QB in history.

I never remember anyone saying that, since I don't think he was even on the roster last year.

have to take it with a grain of salt because that sounds way too ideal but it's nice if true. I think JR sure handled this situation incorrectly. It's like he took Fox's inconsistency personal and wanted to really screw him good.

Yup... Clausen will take the first preseason snap. And I won't be surprised a bit if he wins the job in the end.

Of course he will, because the Panthers aren't drafting a QB this year.

Gotta wonder if that's Danny Morrison.

Also liked what Jensen said about Lewis trying to talk Mike Brown into trading Carson Palmer. They seem to think that the number one plus a fourth rounder will net Palmer.

I'd take that.

do you mean we swap 1sts and give them a 4th? Or they give us a 4th?

This source can go back to wherever it came from. Clausen better than most of the QBs in the draft? Are we talking about the same guy who only threw 3 touchdowns all season? (One on a blown coverage to J-Stew, one to a TE who nobody expects to catch a ball, and one I can't even remember) Clausen wasn't even the best QB on our roster, including the two QBs we got late in the season.

Besides, everything we hear from Rivera himself is that he's still looking for his Phillip Rivers. And we all know that ain't Clausen. We would do good to pick up Colin Kaepernick in the third round. He could be the next "Josh Freeman" type player.
