Well in all fairness Newton is bigger, stronger, and flat out better then Clausen. If things broke down and Clausen couldn't find anybody he was sacked at least Newton can take off and gain some yards as opposed to losing yards and putting us in a bigger hole. Plus the vets I have heard about bringing in where like Marc Bulger who didn't play at all last year and in the 3 years prior has 22 Td's and 34 int's in 35 starts. I just think you bring in someone like him to mentor and help the young guys become better and not really to start.
Yep, you are right, he is.
He is still a rookie QB fresh outta college that does not have ONE down of NFL experience under his belt. Same thing I was saying about Clausen when we decided to start him.
Its just a big risk.
Then, lets say something happens or he just plain sucks. What do we do then? Play JImmy? Tony Pike? There's a solution. I suppose we could play Matty but are we even planning on keeping him?
