dude, Hurney told him he was drafted to be our franchise Qb. I'm sorry if you have issue with that. Dam near the entire fanbase saw him as our "qb of the future." It doesn't matter if Fox/Rivera didn't draft him, we thought we'd be building around him.
where is that stat coming from, btw? I hadn't seen it.
Fact remains he wasn't drafted for Fox's Panthers nor Rivera's Panthers. Again, that would be like John Elway and the Broncos getting Reggie Bush and then hiring John Fox and Denver claiming Bush was going to be the workhorse and featured RB. It doesn't work backwards like that. QBs have to fit systems....and that is why teams get QBs that fit what there coaches want. Therefore he was not legitimately drafted to be our franchise QB. That was just talk you are refering to....nothing more.
Who thought we would build around him?? Carolina drafted him b/c they didn't know what they would do going forward....they ended up hiring Rivera and Chud. Clausen was just a QB who was worth the cost. He was talent......they potential could fit if they went in a certain direction after Fox. They didn't go that direction.
Have to search old threads. It is broken down about the bust/success rate looking at the last decade. I mean it is subjective......in terms of what is a bust vs. success.
