We need to bring in a VERY good Vet QB. Newton could beat Clausen on his throwing motion alone. Newton needs to be pushed to the max and needs to know the starting job won't come easy, even if you're the #1 pick.

I don't think Clausen would be competition on a lot of practice squads from what we witnessed and heard about his even worse practices.

Clausen has game speed on his side.

Clausen has quite a bit on his side, IMO.

THey need a vet who will also understand his role on the team. I don't think you are going to be able to woo a very good FA vet with a starting window as small as it is here. McNabb is not that type of QB that would take on a mentoring role (IMO).


I wish we could land Kitna.

IMO... I would make a run at Donovan Mcnabb or a David Garrard. Garrard is really unlikely. But I would love to have him back there. There's guys out there that would be better to bring in here than just leave Jimmy as the only true competition. Byron Leftwich, Kerry Collins, Matt Hasselbeck, Vince Young to name a few.

Don't be surprised if Vince's name surfaces.

Clausen is just pretend. I agree, any vet that feels they have some juice in the tank, that would we get excited about, probably doesn't want to concede to a backup/mentor role

They also have to want to play for us. McNabb is not coming here. He would be as good of a mentor as Kurt Warner. ie Not Good. Oh and Why would Jax give up Garrard if Blaine is just as much (if not more) of a project than Cam. Why would they screw themselves?
