Clausen was so bad otherwise intelligent people were clamoring for Armanti Edwards to play QB.

Tough guy right here ladies and gentlemen.


Even if you had made a single valid point; (you haven't) you would be seriously discrediting them by making statements like this or calling people "stupid idiots".

Pickles was a second round pick. If he becomes a serviceable backup then he was a good pick. The team isn't behind him so he doesn't need to start if at all possible. Hopefully MM or another vet can step in and play till Cammy is ready.

PS remember when St Pierre joined this team and started like three days later?
He had a better highlight reel in that one game than Pickles had all season..... true story.

Everyone is so blinded by their hate towards this guy which is unjustified after one lousy rookie season. It is just absurd to think that people are ready to write someone off after ten games on the worst team in the league. He doesn't deserve the blame that people put on him.

We only had a total of four games last season in which we had a 100 yard rusher. Out of those four games, Jimmy played in three of them. His numbers were decent in those three games. Also, week 4 against New Orleans when Stewart and Williams combined for over 100 yards on the ground, Clausen had a good game posting a QB rating of 90.6.

Can you at least agree that running the ball, what this team is known for, helps in the passing game? Our rushing attack was non-existant for most of the season. If he had our 1,000 yard back tandem, it would be a completely different story.

So was it his teammates fault he sucked at Notre Dame, too?

Best Scenario for Clausen:

I think if we succeed with Newton, Clausen could develop as a legit backup behind him and maybe save enough time to be a late bloomer in the league with another squad.

probably the best set of clausen highlights i've seen put together. well done


idk if clausen will ever be any good, but the involvement of gettis/lafell/goodson in those highlights gave me more hope than anything.

Late bloomer? Aaron Rodgers didn't start a game until his 4th year in the league. Palmer didn't play in a game until his 2nd year.
