i still dont know why you guys hate this kid so much. some people can come in and be studs right away, like Newton. Some take time. Only one NFL executive saw anything in Farve, Steve Young, and countless other QB's only for them to go on and have fantastic careers. Remember it was technically his senior year of college when he started for us. Yes, i know that same can be said for Newton but I addressed that at the start of my post.
3 years to be groomed in the NFL and who knows what he could look like in a preseason/relief. Then you ship him out for a Kevin Kolb/Charlie Whitehurst trade, win.
Young and Favre at least had raw ability. Mobilty
and a rocket gun.
Physically Clausen has nothing to hang his hat on.
Plus, being scared in the pocket has never been a fixable thing.
Also, if your going to groom a kid he needs to fit your scheme. Every year he takes up space on our roster the odds of him developing get smaller. Fitting your offense is too huge
