Could Clausen throw picks into triple coverage?
Could Clausen get sacked 5 times and never throw the ball away to avoid?
Could Clausen overthrow receivers by 5 yards on 30 yd passes?
Could Clausen not read the "read" option?
If you don't have a reason to be on a high horse, don't climb up there, Cam is stinking it up. It was a huge chance to have drafted him when there was so little passing for any team to review with Cam. Running, yes, plenty of tape, but it was a faith move to hope he could develop into a pocket passer.
Some are losing faith
this post is making my eyes bleed.
first of all, unless you disagree with me when i posit that things could absolutely be worse, then you have no business replying. if thinking that somebody posted something that's demonstrably false constitutes "being on a high horse" then you should direct this shitpost of yours to everybody on this forum rather than just me.
but i'll humor you. as for jimmy, if he had put up cam's game on sunday, it would be far and away his best game as a pro. like not even close. jimmy is a known quantity-he sucks, he's not on an NFL team, it's just a fact that he was overdrafted and hurney made a mistake selecting him, etc. these are basic things that are generally accepted as true and can be backed up easily with facts and the burden of proof is 100% on you if you disagree.
as for losing faith, that's fine. i'm losing faith too, but not in any one particular player more than the coaching staff. it's amazing to me that, three years after the endless nightmare that was the 2010 season, so many people are taking it for granted that we have a quarterback now whose floor is just average/below average on his absolute worst day. that we could roll any dipshit out there (as you wanted to do in late 2012 with your obnoxious "start derek because the games don't matter" shitposting spree) and he'd be at least as good as cam. stupid as hell, and that was my point.
e: clausen threw 9 picks to 3 TDs in his only significant time as a starter. he has no problem turning the ball over to address (what i suppose was) your point.
