The Hourglass on the Jimmy Clausen Era

45 posts in this topic

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.

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

 

JaMarcus Russell? :) j/k

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..

Clausen has played just as good as Cam and DA this preseason.

So I went and saw Eric Norwood play tonight for the Hamilton Tiger Cats (Crappy CFL) against Winnipeg my home team and as Norwood was leaving the field I told him to text Jimmy and tell him that he sucks, he got a good laugh out of it. My gf took a video and ill try and post it later but I'm not 'tech savvy' at all.

Nominate for worst post ever but it was pretty funny and it was all in fun. Norwood love the attention as I told him I was a Panters fan.

Yet The Golden Calf of Bristol so far this preseason makes Pickles look like Brady!

 

Seriously though smartest thing we could do is release him with first team cuts keep Anderson as backup, put the rookie on the practice squad and Armanti could be the emergency QB. I would rather have that third QB roster spot for a sixth WR to give some of these guys more time to develop and possible get some OL help. If we do this atleast we will know going into next years draft where we need to focus more WR or OL.

 

Now back to the The Golden Calf of Bristol highlights, some of his throws last night an average High School QB could of easily made. I saw more than one where I was trying to figure out who he was throwing to because no one was even 10 yards from where it landed.

...only has about 2 weeks worth of sand left in it.

That last drive in the 4th Quarter had to be all Gettleman had to see. I don't hate Clausen and he got caught up in an awful situation during 2010, but he just ain't got the makeup to be even a solid backup.

Even with better arm strength, his pocket presence is god-awful. Really doubt he will be picked up even as a 3rd QB by someone.

Watching Everrette Brown sack him was awful and awesome wrapped up in irony. The demons of 2010 are not going away quietly...

yeah, when E Brown gets a sack clearly the 3s and should nots are on the field... I think his time is nearly up. I was almost convinced he was improving but I think he has a mild case of the Davis Carr syndrome.

I still don't understand the Clausen hate here.

He's looked better than Anderson thus far.

 

Maybe even better.
