Jimmy Clausen

I do think Cam will be a great QB for the team, but I can't help but cheer for Clausen. At Jordan Gross' event Clausen went out of his way to oblige every autograph request and was really friendly. Cam on the other hand, ignored the 8 or so of us on his way out and wouldn't even look at us while his presidential escort made up of 2 cops and a bodyguard yelled at people to get out of his way.

That is a bit concerning :(

No it's not. Of course Clausen has more time to jib-jab with the 1 or 2 fans who want his autograph and less fuss surrounding him. Think about it.

The kid has to realize how important he is to the fans as well as the team. A smile and a wave isn't too much to ask for IMO. Im not bashing him; just hoping this isn't the way he intends to treat fans in the future.

I agree, I just wouldn't take that testimonial alone as reason to believe he disregards fans. "The kid" is naturally being followed around by alot of people right now, and I would guess it's difficult to notice everyone sometimes.

Of course, maybe he's a complete dick. But he can be a complete dick who plays QB very well for the Panthers and I'll be fine with that too.

Newton's problem is that he is probably very cocky because he is a Heisman, national champion, and the top pick in the draft. Unfortunately all of that means nothing and he shouldn't feel as though he is above anyone because in reality, he is a rookie and should be treated like such.

Whoever gets the starting position is who I want to start. I do think they gave up on him to quickly though.

Fingers crossed Clausen beats Newton out.

why wouldn't people want newton to outright win the job?

unless you just don't like the guy and in which case you'd rather see an inferior player get the start just so you wouldn't have that newton guy playing for your team.

If anything hope they both show something so that Clausen can up his trade value. Not surprised by it but the only reason people still are still doubting Newton/hoping he fails is because they don't want to be wrong about him.

You have no idea how Newton will translate in the NFL. I am just very skeptical of the type of player he is. Pocket passers are the way to go in terms of winning. Jimmy is obviously the pocket passer between our two guys. If Cam does in fact beat Clausen out fairly, then I'll accept that. However, I won't accept it if Cam is thrown in there because of pressure from fans and our front office.
