Wonder what goes through the minds of defensive line players when they see Jimmy under center. Time to pad the stats!

I had the same thought. II also thought, "nobody can suck the life out of a stadium faster than Jimmy Clausen." Rarely do you see lines at the gates leaving a stadium.

Personally, I think you have to look at the roster spot and wonder if he is ever going to be worth it. I would cut him, sign a young QB to put on the PS. If we ever get down to our 3rd QB, we are losing the game anyway.

Jimmy just came to the worst team to get his development into the NFL started...he was thrown out there inexperienced and with the O-line he had his first year was atrocious...there was no gradual adaptation to the speed of the offense and no real connection with the receivers...Fox ruined that poor boy.....but yea he will never start for a NFL team..sadly...


What makes you think Clausen could have been a sucessful QB in this league?

-His size
-His arm strength
-His pocket awareness
-His athletic ability
-His leadership
-His decision making
-His pin point accuracy

I really want to know.

Hogwash. He had a good OL, Pro Bowl WR, best RB duo in the NFL AND a decent D. He made them look bad.

Clausen makes OLs look bad. Not them. He did it at Notre Dame. OL took the blame for his horrific pocket presence. He can't go downfield out of the pocket. You put him out there with out starters and he would immediately start scrambling, sensing pressures, not making the throws.....and taking sacks.

He plays exactly like he did at Notre Dame. Fox didn't do that, he couldnt fix it. Playing like he did at Notre Dame won't work.....NFL has talent and eats him up when he does that vintage Clausen slo mo scrambling

I agree with CRA. I DVR'd the game last night, went back and watched clausen play. He would not get rid of the ball. he was holding onto it for more than 3 seconds each sack, and they teach you as a QB to get rid of the ball as soon as you hit that 3 second mark. he has horrendous pocket awareness and is gunshy. It sucks for him that he is broken, but we really need to move on from him.

I actually thought that one deep throw to Edwards in the end zone was nice. It was a bad decision since the coverage was so tight...but the throw itself was spot on. I just think Jimmy needs some confidence and has to feel comfortable in the pocket. His protection was damn horrible too....even when the Texans rushed 4, they'd get to the QB within 2 seconds it seemed like.

I wish the Panthers kept a 4th QB on the 90-man roster so Clausen would have some competition at the #3 spot. I think 3 QBs on the roster is ideal in the NFL, so I don't see them getting rid of Clausen unless they have someone to replace him with.


May I suggest Russell Wilson in Seattle...

I'd cut Clausen just to Add Usain Bolt as Cam's personal Gatorade Delivery Person.

The people who are talking poo about the Clausen haters are really clueless. In 2010 some people had Jimmy going #1 overall in the entire draft to the Rams, he was thought of that damn highly. Hell, I can't remember reading a single draft that didn't have Jimmy going in at least the top 10 that year. There were scouting reports comparing Jimmy to Kurt Warner and Mel Kiper was acting like JC actually stood for Jesus Christ.


When you have that kind of hype behind you while acting like a douche like he does, and when you fail as bad as he has, people are going to hate you.
