Had a nice game. He had an INT that was about 50% his fault and held the ball too long a couple of times, but he looked much improved.

Cam hugger or not (I am), gotta give some love to Jimmy tonight.

Also, can "fans" please stop fuging booing their team during a fuging preseason game? Thanks.

I was pleasantly surprised with both QB's. Both have stuff to work on, as expected, but both exceeded my expectations and that's never a bad thing.

i liked Jimmy's game tonight, he threw one bad pick 6, but rebounded. i know people say he held on the ball too long and he did, but i think he was waiting for a WR to get open, so i dont hate that like many do as long as he doesnt do it all the time. it was a decent game, not bad, not great and the same for Cam, except, he looked VERY poise, something i was shocked to see.

Jimmy looks like the same QB however he got the ball out of his hands a lot quicker. Holding on to the ball a little longer is ok if you have that 6th sense like pocket presence, however Jimmy doesn't seem to have that yet. If he keeps improving and actually throws a deep completion or 2, I won't shoot up heroin if I hear he is starting in the regular season.

agree with everything the OP said. Held the ball too long a few times, that pick was him and Dwills fault. Looked like the unfamiliarity of the offense kinda showed on that play lol, besides that he did some good things out there...

Credit where it's due - the kid played miles better than I thought he would. I still don't think he looked like the better QB out there tonight but he wasn't as far behind as I thought he'd be.

Made a few nice throws - may end up being a serviceable NFL QB somewhere one of these days.

Clausen did well... compared to last season. To me, he looked like a solid filler until Newton is ready.

Newton looked like a rookie. He has stuff to work on, but I liked his attitude while on the field.

I think Jimmy wins as far as performance, but Newton looked like he handled the pressure better.

Jimmy looked much better than last season...but he 100% holds on to the ball wayyyy to long. That second sack by J. Pierre Paul, it felt like Jimmy held onto the ball forever. Constantly rolled out to the right most of the night, just doesnt feel comfortable in teh pocket. Cam on the other hand had a few terrible passes into the ground, but he stepped up in the pocket and didnt roll out or even once. He looked as comfortable as i have ever seen a rookie look. But he did look like a rookie...I'm very excited for his play moving forward.

Olsen is the MAN! that is all...

I tend to root for the players on my favorite team, how you can root against a player on your team is beyond me.

Clausen played pretty good, but that INT was all him. Even though D-Lo didn't turn his head around fast enough, the ball was still behind him.

Acknowledging good things someone did is not "rooting" for them. Dramatization and failing to give credit might be a sign that you are a hater.
