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.

Jimmy has been served a huge piece of humble pie and actually seems to have stomached it pretty well

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.

The jimmey has one redeeming quality. He serves a great brunch for meetings. That is it. Well actually, those brunches keep Cam's weight up during the season, so he is good for something.

It's so funny the way Cam made us forget about Jimmy. I almost forgot he was on the team.

I will never forget 2010. The pain is etched in my mind forever. It was more painful than 2001. Weinke did a better job than Clausen and we were more competitve although we still sucked. Just in 2010 if we were behind by 3 points we were done. We never seemed to come back for a win.

    • Dang Maureen Dowd https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/03/25/opinion/sunday/donald-this-i-will-tell-you.html?_r=0&referer=https://t.co/Lde3tYAqzB Dear Donald, We’ve known each other a long time, so I think I can be blunt. You know how you said at campaign rallies that you did not like being identified as a politician? Don’t worry. No one will ever mistake you for a politician. After this past week, they won’t even mistake you for a top-notch negotiator.   I was born here. The first image in my memory bank is the Capitol, all lit up at night. And my primary observation about Washington is this: Unless you’re careful, you end up turning into what you started out scorning.   And you, Donald, are getting a reputation as a sucker. And worse, a sucker who is a tool of the D.C. establishment. Your whole campaign was mocking your rivals and the D.C. elite, jawing about how Americans had turned into losers, with our bad deals and open borders and the Obamacare “disaster.” what he didn’t know. You both resembled Macy’s Thanksgiving Day balloons, floating above the nitty-gritty and focusing on a few big thoughts. But President Reagan was confident enough to accept that he needed experts below, deftly maneuvering the strings. You’re just careering around on your own, crashing into buildings and losing altitude, growling at the cameras and spewing nasty conspiracy theories, instead of offering a sunny smile, bipartisanship, optimism and professionalism. You promised to get the best people around you in the White House, the best of the best. In fact, “best” is one of your favorite words. Instead, you dragged that motley skeleton crew into the White House and let them create a feuding, leaking, belligerent, conspiratorial, sycophantic atmosphere. Instead of a smooth, classy operator like James Baker, you have a Manichaean anarchist in Steve Bannon. You knew the Republicans were full of hot air. They haven’t had to pass anything in a long time, and they have no aptitude for governing. To paraphrase an old Barney Frank line, asking the Republicans to govern is like asking Frank to judge the Miss America contest — “If your heart’s not in it, you don’t do a very good job.” You knew that Paul Ryan’s vaunted reputation as a policy wonk was fake news. Republicans have been running on repealing and replacing Obamacare for years and they never even bothered to come up with a valid alternative. .................. You sold yourself as the businessman who could shake things up and make Washington work again. Instead, you got worked over by the Republican leadership and the business community, who set you up to do their bidding. That’s why they’re putting up with all your craziness about Russia and wiretapping and unending lies and rattling our allies. They’re counting on you being a delusional dupe who didn’t even know what was in the bill because you’re sitting around in a bathrobe getting your information from wackadoodles on Fox News and then, as The Post reported, peppering aides with the query, “Is this really a good bill?” You got played. It took W. years to smash everything. You’re way ahead of schedule. And I can say you’re doing badly, because I’m a columnist, and you’re not. Say hello to everybody, O.K.? Sincerely, Maureen
