At this point, keeping him in.stead of DA may be the better option.

Respectfully disagree. The season is shot if Cam were to go down, but DA can at least execute a gameplan and take some shots down the field.

Awful Oline play has not helped either of them this preseason but to me Clausen looks and has always looked like it was too big for him.

Even in his 4th year his pocket awareness is terrible and I have no confidence in him even as a backup.

DA hasn't looked great this preseason but he has proven to be a decent backup, and I don't think Clausen can ever even be that.

I just personally can't imagine Gettleman seeing in value in having a roster spot for Clausen, not even as a 3rd QB and definitely not as a backup.

I honestly think it would be better for Cam to have a 3rd QB like Delhomme if we were actually going to keep 3 which I doubt

Really doesn't matter who the backup is.  If Cam goes down, there's nothing keeping the Panthers from going 2-14 again.

Leave the kid alone. Hes making more money that you sitting on his azz, and despite his performance on the field,  looks better doing it.

 

Not sure why people expect a 3rd string QB to be decent. Its well known around here he isn't great, or maybe not even good. Why continue to give the guy shit? He didnt pan out the way we wanted given the choices we made to draft him. GET OVER IT!

 

Personally, I will be glad to see him leave for no other reason than I am tired of seeing him get kicked around by pot-bellied huddlers who dont even have a tenth of the talent, athleticism, or money he has earned by doing nothing but playing badly when thrown in the fire, and since then sitting on his behind following Cam around.

unfortunately, Clausen played as good as the other two QB's, all things considered.

To pick out any Panther tonight for a bad performance would be easy. Just go down the roster

too true

It all boils down to how well he helps in game-planning.  Neither he nor Anderson can seriously be considered as a potential replacement for Newton, although a lot of people seem to think that Anderson should be based on his size and that one good year in Cleveland.  Backup QBs do more than just sit around in case the starter gets injured, and it's possible that Jimmy is good at those elements of the job.

On that first drive JC missed a wide open Brandon Williams for a five yard pass...JC's passes do not usually get thrown near anyone...if you remember 2010..he would make a check down for two yards..then throw tow more incomplete passes one out of bounds running out of the pocket and the other skipping thee yards in front of any reciever who ran further than 15 yards down the field.


I see defenders of him but that must be because he is too easy a target.

he's looking for the deep ball more than I noticed in the past.  I like that, although I hate when he keeps trying to throw into double coverage..
