I think Jimmy gets too much hate. He was in a terrible situation his rookie year. He has handled everything with class. He is not as good as fans hoped, but not as bad as most fans think, I think.
Whether or not he is a Panther next season....I will trust Rivera and Chud and Shula to decide that. Either way....I am not going to hate on the guy.
It's the 2010 season...he shouldn't have ever seen the field, but that's what happened. Lots of hard feelings sprang from that year. Jerry Richardson didn't even get out of that year unscathed. Unfortunate that the whole Fox, Clausen, and overall belt-tightening happened, but it did and Clausen isn't ever going to get much enthusiasm around here on any level.
Glad that's in the rear view mirror, and I wish it played out a little differently, but I think the long term health of the franchise was the driving factor....I hope Jimmy can get a shot somewhere. It just doesn't seem to be the right situation here.
Don't forget we still have Tony Pike.....not that it's a huge plus, just another factor.
