Jimmy Clausen

Several valid points here. My biggest knock on Pickles is that he doesn't have the locker room. When Beason suggests we draft a QB my ears perk up.

He shouldn't have played last year so soon IMO.

Doesn't mean he won't find some level of success down the road.

You're probably right in that he may not have many teammates respect but he has handled everything in a very professional and respectable manner. I like his attitude in his press conferences along with the comments towards the team regardless of how poorly we were.

He will have to gain the locker room somehow which is probably a very tough thing to do right now. Clausen is going to need the team to have trust in him.

What else is he suppose to do? :confused:

Step in and become a quality backup if Cam ever goes down with an injury. If he has a few more years being patient and getting as good as he can get while on the bench, we're in a Kolb-esque situation which is always nice.

Jimmy has been a class act about all of this. None of us would be happy in his shoes, but he's been a pro about it, so I give him props.

He sent welcome tweets to a few of our newly drafted rookies as well.

I don't know about anyone else, but I've gained a lot of respect for Jimmy with the way he's handled this whole situation with Cam. First one in the building to pickup the playbook, welcoming him to the team, texting him, etc.

You know he's gotta be pissed about it, but instead of bitching he's simply gotten to work. Call me crazy, but I have this odd feeling that Jimmy Clausen is going to help this team out in a big way down the road at some point.

I think by playing fairly well this year and becoming some other team's answer, re-couping our 3rd we spent on him or maybe even a second.

He would have to be pretty damn good to get a second for him.

Let's hope for a 6th and anything better than that is gravy

jimmy is a class act, but i have no problem him becoming a footnote in panther history.

he played an instrumental part in our getting newton.

i hope he has an opportunity to show that he can be a lot better than he was last year, but the only reason for that is so that he can have some good trade value. i don't care what happens to him after that. i hope he doesn't have as many opportunities to showcase what he can do as schaub had in atlanta, but i sure would like getting what they got for him (trading 1sts and also getting two 2nd rounders).

i just don't think that clausen will be given much of an opportunity aside from preseason games unless newton gets hurt. maybe a couple games early on in the season, but i want newton starting before the bye week. preferably the 2 games prior to the bye.

I agree.

There really is no way for Clausen to see the field. You gotta think either Cam starts from the get go or they bring in a vet until he is ready...

I just can't see an arguement for Jimmy seeing the field without injury being the factor.

I feel the same. I was not a fan of the Clausen pick at all and his performance just made me resent the pick even more. But the way he has handled himself throughout the season and post season showed me he is a better man than I thought. I also respected the way he kept picking himself up off field play after play and not showing a lot of anger or frustration. He has taken sole responsibility for his play and never tried to deflect when he would have been sort of justified because he had a lot of help.

But I will not be sad to see him go.

I like Jimmy, I think he is a good kid who tries hard. He was put into a crappy spot last year with a horrible OC. I live in Raleigh and like 2 wear my Clausen jersey to the local bar ( the Goat). I don't care what people say to me about him. It brings me great joy to see him make a good play. Even if there are not that many. ps I hate Notre Dame, I am a Duke football fan.
