Clausen isn't 'real' competition for Newton

95 posts in this topic

He needs a vet QB where he can be in there hip pocket more so than competition imo his desire to want to be great doesn't need to be fueled by someone trying to take his spot

I would like to see Newton actually play a few downs in the NFL before saying something like that.

No one actually expects Jimmy to be much of a factor anymore. That's why we the used #1 pick on another QB.

Jimmy is awful. He's been wildly overrated his entire life, he isn't big or strong enough to be an effective NFL QB, and he will not be here at the end of his contract. The only reason he played last year was because the other guys sucked and weren't drafted as high as he was, so they had to see what he could do once Moore shit the bed so many times.

Can he get better between now and then? Probably, but it won't matter unless the other guys on the roster are really awful, and I think Newton, while he has a lot to learn, is inherently better than Jimmy. He is terrible, he gets tackled at the first point of contact, he can't make the necessary deep throws, and his teammates don't respect him.

I also so don't think we can judge if Newton is ready or not during pre-season games. Jimmy showed a lot during the pre-season and fell flat on his face when it was time for a REAL game.

We need to bring in a VERY good Vet QB.

Vet QB that would know his role?

Jake?

Exactly that's the biggest thing imo I feel Cam can contribute early in his career just needs a mentor that like you said knows his role on our squad. Wouldn't mind Jake if he didn't have to rely on him to play.

Why not Jake?? He fits the criteria everyone keeps putting out there for a vet QB.

If you get a vet you don't want to play isn't that just a QB coach?? And don't we have one already???

I really don't think we want Jake teaching. I love him, but I Jake was never a technician or student of the position. He was a gunslinger. He could teach him how to act like a pro, but that's about it.
