A link from the OM Field on Clausen, not bad info:

i dont see how tom brady or peyton manning could teach Tebow anything that sexy rexy or pineapple jesus couldnt.

Re: Jimmy Clausen has met with the Redskins

This is exactly what the Redskins should do, follow the Dolphins example:


If you look at what Bill Parcells and the Dolphins did when they first got to South Florida, they took the best left tackle in the draft in Jake Long. He'll likely start at that position for the next eight or nine seasons. They eventually selected Chad Henne, but the Dolphins didn't rush the process. It was Chad Pennington who led the team to the playoffs in '08.

Taking Clausen in the first round might be the most exciting move the Redskins could make, but acquiring a cornerstone of the offensive line will provide a better foundation. You guys on board with Okung at No. 4 or do you want Clausen? Use the "comments" section to answer The Big Question.

Re: Jimmy Clausen has met with the Redskins

Difference is Jake Long wasn't just the best OT in the draft, he was also one of the best OTs in a while. Okung isn't quite as dominant

It is also true that the Fins finished 7-9 last year in part due to struggles at the QB position. Their recipe is a good one but not foolproof.

Re: Jimmy Clausen has met with the Redskins

this is a very deep draft for OTs. i think as long as we nab one with LT potential in the first two rounds, we'll be ok. ideally, we can trade down and get another 2nd rounder. however, if we're stuck at 4, i think were much better off drafting okung than reaching for clausen. as of right now, those seem to be the two most popular theories.

what would really be interesting to see is if bradford, okung, and clausen were all gone before we picked. (with buffalo trading up for clausen). in that case, we likely wouldnt have anyone offering to trade with us, since both of the elite DTs would be available. i wonder what we would do if that scenario played out.

They also picked up some wins until the rest of the league figured out what the heck they were doing lining up their RB at QB and QB at WR. Just like a new pitcher from Japan, the second time the opponents face him, they're not quite as confused and his ERA goes up.

Re: Jimmy Clausen has met with the Redskins

I still say trade down, get more picks, draft a OT and OG with the first 2 picks, find a QB in the 3rd (if we get a pick) or 4th round.

Re: Jimmy Clausen has met with the Redskins

I there's a guy playing in the NFL right now, who would you guys compare Clausen to. I'm talking size, physical ability, and football acumen.

Any names come to mind?

Really? I heard doubts about his ability to play LT in the NFL due to a perceived lack of foot quickness. Not overwhelming doubts mind you but there were a few experts that thought he might be a hair to slow to be a dominant LT.

Physically smaller Phillip Rivers, with a slightly stronger arm.

Re: Jimmy Clausen has met with the Redskins

Vinnie (Look-inna-my-eyes) Cerrato has a new title: Count!


Count Look-inna-my-eyes!

He's in the Clausen corner.

As if this is any news, and of any real value.
