After reviewing this again, I count 5 bad passes for Cam, and 6 for Jimmy. I did not consider the hail mary as either good or bad.

While neither performed well, our problems last night went way beyond the QB's.

Jimmy can throw checkdowns all day long. I am just not sure we are good enough to sustain 10 play drives on a regular basis. Almost all of his long throws look like ducks, and you have to hold your breath waiting for the int.

If it was my decision, I would start Cam based on the first two games.

Clausen looks much better than Newton at this point.

Huh?


Total yards. Passing and rushing combined. I should have been clearer.

I watched the first half of each week 2 preseason game on NFL.com, and to tell you the truth, Cam and Clausen looks pretty much like every other QB, with the exception of Brady, Henne, Big Ben, and Colt.

If I had to chose it would be Clausen, at least at first. Footwork is a must once things get rolling. Everyone will struggle with accuracy just being as young as they are. Soon as Cam's footwork starts coming along he will for sure be above Jimmy, but for now, Clausen had a better preformance to support being the starter.

I actually give the nod to Clausen so far.

Footwork issues aside Cam gives us a better chance to win

Cam seems to average over 4 yards a carry, which will go a long way.

So basically 1/3 of what makes a good QB aside, let's start Newton?

Id have to go with Cam. I just don't think jimmy has the confidence to take control of the team. He makes very safe decisions besides that pick six, but thats not always a good thing. If jimmy had that killer instinct in him he could be a very good qb. I'm not saying he doesn't have but he hasn't shown it. Cam has shown flashes of big playmaking ability and he's shown his weakness. One thing I liked about last game is with all the pressure that came at him he was able to get away. I wouldnt be mad if jimmy got the start but he needs to find that killer in him if he wants to keep a starting job

So tell us what the other 2 are, throwing short and being white?

Really what are the three things?

35 yard completion by Jimmie was called back because the
DA wide receiver didn't line up on the line of scrimmage.

Add that to JC's stats and the comparison isn't close.

Didn't we have this argument last week with the Cam dropped passes?

Heres my 3 things that make a good QB- Jimmy vs Cam

Confidence: Cam
Leadership: Cam
Pocket presence Cam

As far as overall ability they are about equal at this point but these give cam the edge IMO
