Joseph Person tweets that Clausen might be traded this season

I don't think Clausen will be traded for a number of reasons

1. Why get rid of basically you're first round pick from last year unless you get a 3rd or higher which I don't think Clausen will get

2. What happens if Cam struggles learning the playbook

3. Competition never hurt anyone and Cam vs Jimmy vs Pike/Moore would push eveyone involved to be better

Also I would say 75% of the team would be up for grabs if the price is right.

Pike and Clausen don't appear to be real competition for this style of offense. Nor do they have anything to offer other QBs being so young.

1) he wasn't basically a first round pick. they put nowhere near the effort into checking this guy out that they would have a real first rounder (otherwise they may have passed as well) and they also don't have anywhere close to the financial stake one would with a first rounder.

2) then clausen is a fallback option? what have you seen that makes you feel this would be better than newton having a struggle with the playbook?

3) i'd rather have the bar set a little higher for competition. a rabbit in a race with a slug is competition, but it won't make the rabbit any faster. i doubt anyone on the roster right now would be all that hard to overcome on the depth chart for newton.

We tried trading up to get him but the price was too high so we sat and waited and he fell to us.

Why not have Clausen as a fallback option? We have to sign D'Lo, Johnson, Davis, and try and get some help at CB and DT in free agency. Why waste money on a backup QB in FA? We should spend our money wisely since JR is known to be a tightwad.

I understand people wanting us to bring in a vet to compete but it's Cam's job. The only thing that will stop him from starting is his own self. So keep guys we already have under contract (unless we get a good offer on Clausen.) If not keep him and fill other holes and get better collectively as a team.

i'd rather a backup QB have a little success and just a big more experience. .

clausen is at best a project, even as a backup. we already have one project at QB (which any newly drafted QB is), why waste resources on more than one?

bring in mcnabb. keep clausen. let moore walk.

Fu*k Donovan McNabb.

He'll be crying if he doesn't start, and when he doesn't, he'll make some condescending remark that implies Chico is a racist.

I'd rather bring Delhomme back to tutor Cam and show him how to carry himself on and off the field. If McNabb had half the heart Delhomme had he would have won a SB.

McNabb, without a doubt, is one of the most over rated players in the history of the NFL. He is crybaby pussy bitch who throws INTs on monday night football then limps off the field like he is hurt.

if I would take some of these posts as truth and walked the streets trying to sell them, I would owe society millions..

The part you highlighted is the truest part of my post. The guy needs to go.

Nah, McNabb has been pooted on like almost no other comparable QB. Can't blame him for occassionally saying something considering what he has put up w/ from draft day to present day.

We don't need him but he ain't a crybaby.

I don't understand why people like McNabb. have you see him play? he's inaccurate as poo and is in the bottom half of starting QB's in the NFL. too much money for a guy well past his prime. might as well resign Delhomme if you're looking for a mentor to Cam.

Moore-Clausen-Newton will be our QB depth chart this season. Deal with it.

    • You are wonderful at reacting, but not so much thinking about what you are reacting to. Note the ultra progressive remarks in this article, drink a couple beers, take a nap, then read the article again, my question again, and then "react".  Thanks for your time. http://rense.com/general93/nato.htm

You can build cars for the United States, but for every car that comes to the USA, you will pay 35 percent tax,” he said. “I would tell BMW that if you are building a factory in Mexico and plan to sell cars to the USA, without a 35 percent tax, then you can forget that.” Trump’s new comments impugning the Germans for exporting cars were made in a meeting with the European Commission president, Jean-Claude Juncker, and the European Council president, Donald Tusk. Juncker, Der Spiegel reports, supported the Germans. Another German newspaper, Süddeutsche Zeitung, reported that E.U. representatives felt their U.S. counterparts did not understand that the E.U. negotiates trade agreements as a single entity, rather than on a country-to-country basis. That is, the U.S. can negotiate trade deals with the E.U. as a whole, but not individually with the separate members of the E.U. Der Spiegel reported that Gary Cohn, the director of Trump’s National Economic Council, appeared to believe that the U.S. could negotiate different trade deals with Germany and Belgium.   This is not the first time this basic misunderstanding has cropped up. When German Chancellor Angela Merkel visited the White House in March, she had to explain how E.U. trade deals were negotiated almost a dozen times, a senior German official told the Times of London. “Ten times Trump asked [Merkel] if he could negotiate a trade deal with Germany. Every time she replied, ‘You can’t do a trade deal with Germany, only the EU,’” the official said. “On the eleventh refusal, Trump finally got the message, ‘Oh, we’ll do a deal with Europe then.’”
