The future of Clausen

Assuming he gets cut, where might he end up? You know he wants a chance to compete for a starting position, and there are some pretty horrific QB situations around the league in a few spots (Buffalo, Oakland come to mind).


Somewhere with a West Coast Offense.

You know he's never played in a WCO, right?

I know his skill set is way better suited to it.

Weis ran an Earhardt-Perkins system at Notre Dame. Not WCO technically, but closer than the base Coryell we run.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Panthers have always carried 3 QBs on their roster and Gettleman did so in New York as well. In this day and age of injuries to QBs, why risk having only 2 available on game day?

KC would be as good a pick as any.  If I were him, that's what I would be looking at.

 

Reid can make average/below average QB's look like legit starters.

If you need a quarterback really bad, we have a really bad quarterback.

Gettlemen has usually rolled with only two to my knowledge.

We have only had two available on game day since drafting cam. Clausen was not an active player during any of those games and despite what some think he would not be able to play in the game if cam and DA were to go down. So no need really for a third qb. Designate someone as an emergency qb and roll with two on the roster and either one on the practice squad or sign a FA if one gets injured.

The Panthers don't have a need for 3 QBs. If Clausen beats out Anderson thats OK.  Neither is our future starter. Now that Armanti seems to have made the team, he could serve as our 3rd QB until we picked up a vet if needed.

Except for one season DA hasn't been that effective.

I think he'd be a decent option for Reid's Cheifs.

 

As long as he isn't here, I don't care where he goes!

Not much closer.  Tom Brady notwithstanding, it's smash-mouth football with a lot of play action.

 

I'm not saying that his skill set isn't suited for it, but he's never shown me a talent for short timing routes, and he has shown an ability to throw a deep ball (even if there is a lot of air under it).  So given that, I guess my thought here is that it's not too likely Clausen, a product of down-field offenses (Coryell and E-P) would look to join a WCO team.  Nor would a WCO team be looking his way necessarily. 

 

If that's the case, then the Jets won't be interested.  If I were him, I would be asking my agent to call Buffalo, Jacksonville, and *shudder* Oakland.  I can't think of any other team that's a real candidate, although being the backup in Arizona could net some playing time this year when Palmer gets hurt.
