easy. 3 things.

1 - not bailing and looking scared w/ slight pressure in the pocket (consistantly). This is by far the most important for me. this is the main reason he sucks.

2 - actually looks to show confidence inside and out of the huddle
3 - his first actual TD to a WR

If he does that by preseason game 4......holla at me.


I think you nailed it. Number 1 specifically.

He needs to stay in the pocket and make some plays. Sometimes he is too safe. Take some risks, especially in the pre-season.

In just over a day, this played out pretty much like I expected.

The smarter haters didn't sign their name to this thread. The rest of you... well, let's just say that we'll be revisiting this thread in the future.

Anybody who didnt expect clausen to improve, shouldnt even be football fans. Go find some common sense.


Yeah, this.

What if his performance last year matched his performances since he was a 9th grader?

The only difference is he didn't have clearly superior talent surrounding him?

How do you feel then?


2007: clearly weak talent around him at ND, poor season
2009: good talent, good season
2010: clearly weak talent around him with Panthers, poor season
2011: ??

Seriously enough with the bashing, he's on our team he's our qb for now. Quit being soo damn negative and see the obvious improvements clausen has made. I hated last season as much as any of you, but its the past let it go already.

The funny thing is most of the clausen haters now were riding his jock as soon as we drafted him. Most thought we "found" our franchise qb for a fraction of the price we have to pay for his salary. Just about everyone had him in their avatars and were pissed Moore got the start week 1 last season. Yea he hasn't lived up to his expectations, but why crucify him after 1 season.

I hated when we drafted him and was pissed when we drafted Newton, but none of that matters now or in the future, it happened its in the past get the fug over it smfh. Be a fan of the team like most of you post after ripping our players apart. A true fan doesn't hate any of the men wearing the uniform representing our team. You people make me sick, and to think we have a classy fanbase. Look in the mirror none of you negative pricks are any better than a falcon, steelers or even cowboys fan.

Most don't want to see Clausen succeed because they feel if he does it will not allow Cam to play. This obviously makes no sense but I feel most deep down feel this way.

simply not true.....

2010 - Gross, Kalil were pro bowlers....Smitty and Williams former ones...and Stewart is pro bowl caliber. We have already addressed the D being more than respectable and there only real issues was the O not doing there part.

The OL having some injuries and shuffling on the ride side does not = weak talent.

The one consistant from Clausen from ND to the NFL......he makes OLs look much worse than they are w/ his pocket play (David Carr like).

I was a Jake doubter until he ran us all the way to the Super Bowl and was a kickoff away from being a Super Bowl MVP.

Jake was never a great QB if you were to break down his play

but Jake always had that "it" quality....he passed the eyeball test. It wasn't going to be pretty but he could get the job done and do big things in the process.....
