Clausen's Still Fighting

To Clausen: Just go away, you are not welcome here.

No Panther fan should be wishing failure for Jimmy. We need to cheer him on like any other Panther. If he comes into camp and blows things up and starts we should support him. Just because Cam was picked doesn't me poo except he is also on the team and we should support him as well. I hate poeple who try to divide our team like this, it's not cool. I hope one of our QBs really steps it up and we are as confident in whoever is starting day one.

CLausen had #2 first and deserves it more than Cam, Clausen got battered to hell in that jersey his rookie year. In the NFL. He deserves it more and has every right to it.

See, I think they are in the same boat. You would think that Clausen would like to forget that season last year and that starts right now. I think both should be treated like rookies as far as the competition for the starting job and even the jersey number goes, this a new coaching staff which give's everyone equal oppurtunity and that includes Cam.

A competition will only bring out the best in everyone, and I think the more that's on the line the better.

See now you are forgeting just who Newton is.

I won't argue with you that based on his performance Clausen needs to be somewhat humble. But don't confuse that with Newton having the right to be more than a rookie. Hopefully, Newton's additude isn't anything like yours and he walks into the doors supporting all of his teammates and taking his lumps like all rookies.

I don't understand?

You are a fool.

Clausen was asked a direct question if he was going to give up his jersey number. What prideful and competitive person is going to just give the equally unproven guy what he wants?

Plus, it's a number. You are making a huge deal of this simply because you hate Clausen. Which just makes you look like an immature idiot.

Sorry, my previous comment to you was uncalled for.

But I think the more that is on the line for Clausen and Cam the better the competition will be, that way it is a winner takes all kind of deal and whoever wins clearly wanted it more.

He responded with "it's mine.

It is his for now. Why should he give it up? He may have sucked last year but he stuck through it and played as tough as he was capable of and the one thing none of us can take away from him is that he got up after every play and got back in the huddle. If he never amounts to anything so be it but the way he played is not a good reason to take that jersey from him. Beyond that, he didn't even say "ILL NEVER GIVE IT UP WAAAH!" he left the door open that he could part ways with it. He has every right to that jersey because he actually played in the NFL last year.

You talk about entitlement, there's nothing more entitled than walking into a team as a rookie and demanding an open competition for a jersey number. Luckily for us, Cam isn't as stupid as you are.

OK TO EVERYONE!!!

I am not wishing for Jimmy to fail, but I think that the more that is on the line as in starting job, number, etc will bring out the best between Clausen and Newton and that way there is no doubt who the better player is and it is a winner takes all type of thing.

No. It would be a massive mistake to force a competition for a jersey number because Cam wants the jersey. If it's Clausens idea, fine, but there is NO REASON that Cam can't just pick a different number.

Personally I want him to wear #1 but it's good to hear Clausen's showning some confidence this competition will be great for our squad short term and long term. Worthy of HBO Hard Knocks interesting to say the least just wish we knew we were having a season :(

So do you think we should an open competition for every number in camp?

After all, it wasn't just Jimmy Clausen that lost us 14 games last year.

I never said you said that, but you did suggest it. Do you think the coaches are going to fall over themselves to get Cam Newton #2 by making it an open competition? Come on.

A rookie, no matter how hyped, deserves far less than a guy who has played through a tough year. If they work out an agreement so be it, but it should be both players that agree and it shouldn't be some kind of competition.

They have more important things to compete for than a jersey.

He can pick a different number and I don't see anything wrong with that but I don't see Clausen with number two next year. Just my opinion though.

Yeah, I'm the fool.

Shut you mouth and learn you place dumbass.

He responded with "it's mine."

Secondly, I didn't say that he should give it to Cam, I said they should have a competition for it.

Third, I don't hate Clausen, but he is entitled to nothing more than Cam after that season last year, and if it's just a jersey, then why not have a competition for it?

I didn't realized you stood behind Clausen and held his balls.

Frankly your attitude and what you write is pretty offensive and pointless. You made a comment earlier in the thread about people being internet tough guys, when it is in fact YOU who is try to force feed your opinion down peoples throats.

What would you expect him to say? Genuinely answer that. Anything other than what he said would have made him look like he was giving up to Cam without even fighting for it.

Have you ever heard of people competing for a jersey number? They might do this in kindergarten, but for professionals? Frankly Clausen was given it and unless he wants to give it up it's his. What difference would it make to Cam...? The reason some fringe players give up numbers to high priced vets and draftees is because it can often give them a little bit of cash in case they get cut.

Believe it or not, there isn't 'sides' like you claim, some people actually just want whats best for the team. Both these guys competing is what is.

Grow up
