Clausen stopped listening to coaches

163 posts in this topic

Right after his quote in that particular chat I asked for clarification. His response was

I think it’s reasonable to argue he thought he was getting bad coaching.

Later when it became clearly that we were seriously looking at the QBs in the draft I asked him when Clausen was getting cut. His responses are here, here and here.

You remember how long HIM held on? The Jimmy will have more chances.

One small point to make re: The Jimmy: Notice when Fox took most of his staff to Denver, he didn't ask OC/QB coach to join 'em. Coincidence?

Can't absolve Jimmy of his role in last year's disaster (he was after all the lowest-rated passer in the NFL), but there was plenty of help.

I think Jimmy has the ability to do well in the NFL. I don't know if he is going to be playing for the Panthers though. As Cyberjag noted, the comment "He stopped listening to coaches" is not specific enough. When did he stop listening to the coaches? With 3 games left on the schedule or when he got benched for the first time? Was it possible that what he was told was unreasonable? We don't know the answers to all of that. It is a vague statement and I wonder why it was made in the first place, given that it was so vague.

Jimmy is a QB not a QB

what does this mean? I must be missing some sort of reference here.

People keep saying this.....but until further notice......there is no evidence suggesting Clausen belongs on an NFL field.

I am aware that 99% of football fans feel differently. I am not changing my stance on that yet.

Same could be said June of 2006 about Philip Rivers.

Also in June 2008 about Rodgers.

Rivers had 30 pass attempts in 2 years - 0 starts

Rodgers had 59 pass attempts in 3 years - 0 starts

Jimmy Clausen has 299 pass attempts in year 1 and 10 starts......big difference.

I fail to see how those guys showed the suckage Clausen did. Those guys had shown nothing overall (good or bad)....Clausen showed A LOT of CRAP.

CRA hardly represents 99% of football fans. I figure the actual odds are closer to 50/50 among active message board posters. And I think that in the Panters organization the odds are lower than that. Anyone who thinks that last year represented a good environment in which to judge any player's progress is someone who's opinion won't weigh heavily with me at all.

I seriously doubt 50% of the people on planet Earth think Clausen will be a successful NFL QB. I doubt 50% of NFL fans think it and I doubt 50% of Panther fans think it....

in 3 days, the FO will voice what they think...

I seriously doubt 50% of the people on planet Earth have any idea who Jimmy Clausen is, so congratulations on being right. :D
