Before any of you crucify me...

Look at it this way.

Jimmy Clausen starts the season for us, with the talent that is with him now, If Jimmy Can't produce, then ,ok, cut your losses. But if he does produce and generates decent numbers so other teams take notice. This only means Jimmy could be used a trade bait. Meaning the panthers could rape a team just like...The Eagles.

Look at the Eagles, they RAPED the Cardinals for a guy like Kolb. Kolb arguably had some really good Talent around him in Jackson, Maclin, Celek. The Cards still took a chance and gave away a good CB and a 2nd round pick for him.

We don't lose anything by doing this. Nothing, Cam gets to sit maybe 4-5 games tops. We see if Clausen can garner interest. Swindle a team into thinking he's worth say a player we might need at a certain position and a draft pick. Or just a high draft pick. At this point if we just get enough interest that they would only get a 2nd round pick for him, I say do it! Get that 2nd rounder back for the guy.


Thoughts?

I don't want to ever see Clausen throw another football in a regular season game right now. I'd love to sign a vetern QB and have him or Cam start the regular season.

We'll see how the pre-season goes though.

Jimmy mustn't start anything. If he wins the job, then I'm all for it. If he blows in Training Camp, and the Preseason (or whatever the hell the NFL is doing) then he should promptly be cut.

He has absolutely no reason to suck this year.

Yea, I want Clausen to start, but for different reasons.

In a condensed off season without ota's, increased roster sizes, and new coaches/philosiphys, the coaches are going to need the first few weeks to evaluate talent. There will be little time for really coaching the new system and spending one on one time with our players.

I don't think the team as a whole will be ready week 1. If that's the case why put Cam in a situation for him to fail. If he is going to be our franchise QB for the next 10 + years there is no need to rush him in. The kid still has a lot to learn.

I'll rather let Jimmy try to be the QB while the team gets their act together. Then if Clausen can just be okay you let Cam in when he is ready. Start with some series, then give him more game time until he is ready.

This way he comes in, plays well, and builds great confidence.

Just my opinion, though I know it's not a popular one around here.
