No doubt JC is on his way out the door. But seeing as how he is still a Panther and even though he sucked horribly when he played, I am a consumate homer who feels that something can be said to how he handled this situation.

Jimmy took a lot of heat when he first came out. People were saying he was arrogant, and not a team player. There were fears that he would not be able to win over the locker room and that players would not want to play with him.

When he got to the league it all died down, then as he was thrust into a no win situation as a rookie, his confidence and potentially his pyche were damaged pretty severly. This all culminated to the second worst season in franchise history and a LOT of pissed off fans. He lost the support of the fans, the confidence of the coaches but I think he gained the respect of his teammates.

Mind you nobody wants him to be the QB but you got to admire somebody that through all that sucking can come to work, smile, throw a pick and do it all again the next day. I watched him in practice a couple of times and he seemed upbeat. God awful, but upbeat. He has never said the wrong thing, doesnt fight with the media (who reamed him) and still cheers Cam on when he scores.

(I know it may have been a dick-move not giving Cam the jersey, but we dont know. None of us were there and a lot of people dont want to give up their jersey to a rookie. Besides this is not about Cam. Give Jimmy his due so he can go in peace.)

Clausen deserves nothing but respect for how he's handled his time here.

Wish we coulda sent him to Arizona for at least a 7th. I believe he's better than what they have...and that's not saying a lot.

I think Jimmy handled the situation like a grown man. 0% chance of getting a snap, but never pouted.

If that's what you call cleaning up unclear/frivolous threads, sure.

He clarified what he was trying to say, it made sense, thread stays. Pretty simple really.
