If anything Losman is closer to Clausen than Gabbert. I am not saying that because of I like Gabbert more than both of the others, I am just saying that losman and clausen have similar height and weight as well as arm strength.

while kinda true, I thought that at the combine Losman struggled with intermediate accuracy but had a really nice deep ball. May be wrong, it's been years...

I dont know what Losman did at the combine. I was just trying to remember what he did with the Bills early in his career. lots of interceptions on deep ball attempts to Lee Evans

Interestingly they both struggled under pressure as well in college. In 2009 Clausen was 66% overall in completions but he dropped to 52% on third down. Likewise Gabbert was at 63% for the year and 44% on third down. Clausen continued to do so in the pros. Frankly I think Gabbert might struggle in the pros as well. One of the biggest positive for Newton was that under pressure his completion percentage went up not down. Overall on third down he was at 58% versus 66% overall which was not a big drop off. When blitzed by 5 guys or more it went up to 76%.

Maybe it is me but I saw enough 3rd down blitzes which turned into sacks or throw aways to last several years. Unfortunately picking Gabbert might very well end up being more of the same. More of a feeling than anything I can prove one way or the other.

This is a very hard thing to compare though. Gabbert was in an offense in which they threw 99% of the time and were in the shotgun 100% of the time. As a result two incompletions on first and second and they were at 3rd and 10. However when they did get first downs it was on other downs. so its like Gabbert was making 3rd down throws on 2nd and 1st down.

meanwhile in Cams offense they were moving the ball with a more balanced offense( it could even be said a very run first offense) so people werent sure when we was going to throw. Because of the running game it wasnt feast or famine.

There you go introducing facts into the discussion. Totally ruined the fairy tale he was weaving.
