He was making some good throws. He looked like he had poise.
Then, uh, why'd you bring up Newton's 1-game preseason stats?
Actually... Jimmy looked like Jimmy from last year. Newton looked like a rookie who's had three weeks to train with his team. No, neither one of them looked great.
And I thought you weren't debating JC vs. CN. thing anyhow.
I brought up Cam's stats to show how completely stupid all of you sound by trying to downplay the fact that Clausen had a night pretty equal to Cam's.
neither played great....but neither played bad.
There are a few that want to bash Cam no matter what (TRD). There are a few who want to bash Clausen no matter what (you).
I prefer to look at their performance objectively and say that both did some nice things during the game and both had their very shaky moments.
But, the Cam Homers who try and take an 8-19 game (44% completion...whichis terrible) and talk about how great he was. He was NOT great. He had flashes of great play and then looked like a rookie most of the time.
