Posted by Laetitia on 02 January 2011 - 08:10 PM

(By Darin Gantt, dgantt@heraldonline.com) iReport Card from the Panthers-Falcons game on Jan. 2./ip/bQUARTERBACK: /bHey, it's not all Jimmy Clausen's fault. But he didn't do much to fix it, either. He finished the year as the league's lowest-rated passer (58.4), and there's enough of a sample size to prove that's no accident. He'll get some competition for next year, and he needs to get a lot better if he wants to play in the league again. This one's on him. bGrade: /bF.
