Clausen Has Improved

I know there's the usual caveats about third strings and underthrown balls and head-scratching plays, but the primary difference I saw in Clausen's play tonight and his play throughout the rest of his Panthers tenure is that he was being very decisive in his reads. I definitely think much of his issues this preseason stemmed from terrible line protection, but since the Steelers weren't rushing every other play Clausen didn't spend have the game on his back for a change.

He put a lot of underneath passes right in the receivers hands, and rarely used the check down (as his 9 for 19 line indicates.) His TD throw to green was a terrific strike, and he utilized Barnidge and Joe Jon Finley nicely on a few throws across the middle of the field. His TD throw to Bryant was almost all Bryant, however.

I was legitimately surprised. He's by no stretch a threat to Cam or Derek for that matter, as our vertical offense is a mismatch for his skills, but he could probably run a play-action dominated offense like Kansas City's to a decent degree.

I just want to know why he wouldnt throw to Smitty! Im glad he didnt because we got Cam due to him not throwing to 89. But why the hell was he scared to throw to Smitty in '10? I even remember before one game a shot of Smitty telling him throw the ball up and he would grab it.

But the thing is, could he play against 1st string defenses? The answer is hell to the no. He gets chased around like a headless chicken by 3rd string nobodies causing him to look retarded and make weird passes.

He went 9-19 vs 3rd stringers. He's still nothing special or something even remotely close to being a good NFL QB.
