Gil Brandt would take YOU over Jimmy Clausen

Recommended Posts

He gets paid very handsomely to hold a clipboard and he has a super hot girlfriend...don't feel bad for him.

 

This.

 

He got a free education from Notre Dame and has been paid very well to accomplish jack poo in the NFL.  We should all be so lucky.

Jimmy seems like a nice guy though, I hate to poo on him.

From all second hand accounts I have heard of things about town he is a total dick head. Maybe he has grown up in the past few years though.

I don't know if he is an ass or not but since Cam arrived I haven't heard anything negative about pickles from any players so I give him props for that. A lot of people would have made themselves into a huge headache and caused issues getting replaced like he did after one season when the organization was crap around him but Jimmy hasn't done that(or i haven't heard about it).

Jimmy never has been liked in Charlotte, a lot of people hated the pick, disastrous rookie season, inactive all 16 games for the past two seasons...etc. He isn't used to that. People in South Bend bowed down to him. He literally was sitting on top of the world. Now he's one of the worst QB's on an NFL roster.

He was literally sitting on top the world? Or by literally you mean figuratively?

he had one shot. it was his rookie year with awful coaches and no talent. his supporting cast gave zero craps. we gutted our team.

frustrating.

Nah, Fox's style was essentially to help weak QBs have success.

Clausen played in the NFL just like he did at Notre Dame. That wasnt Fox. Clausen made his OL look like poo and player scared at ND.....and never impressed. Only difference was his scared style didn't totally implode Notte Dame when they played West Coastal Texas Univserty Tech.

He doesn't appear to be the douche he was portrayed as however. I think the fact he is a good guy has kept him on this roster

If Gil Brandt says this, then that speaks volumes.  He is forever liberal with the praise and short on unfettered criticism.

When Jimmy was the starter he would frequently respond to tweets, so I don't know if I buy him being a jerk. He seemed pretty down to earth to me.

He had one shot and most of that was with two rookie wrs, a lame duck coach, and a gutted roster. Maybe he was going to suck anyway but he never had a chance.

Was just listening to late hits on NFL radio and a listener from Charlotte called in and asked if he thought Colby Cameron could beat out jimmy Clausen in training camp.

Gil's response was " Brian I don't know you and I don't know if you can throw a football but I'd take you over that quarterback from Norte Dame"..

 

haha As Ice Cube would say; Roofless!

Pickles' career is the epitome of the perfect storm. He came to the wrong place at the wrong time. 

 

Is Pickles' case really about him not being able to play in the league, or not being given a real opportunity to play in the league?

One incomplete season with a staff that didn't give a poo may lend itself to jokes, but does not necessarily mean that it lends itself to reality. The Jimmy Clausen story began as a dream that turned into a nightmare during the start of his professional career due mainly to circumstance, but that doesn't mean that it will end as a horror. Perhaps it will end as a dream deferred.  

 

One thing about it: I think that Rivera and Gettelman will give Clausen an honest chance to make his case in Carolina. 

 

I'm certainly not going to listen to some national media type who probably doesn't know poo about the intricacies of the team.
