every time clausen takes the field in preseason he makes one good throw and you're like "hmmm, not bad" and then he follows it up by looking completely abysmal the rest of the game

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

again.. 95% of Jimmeh's contract would be dead money / is guaranteed. he'll play his contract out, no big deal

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 poo? 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
