Your thoughts on taking McCoy and Tebow over Clausen based on Stats are just absurd. Granted my tone was that of an a-hole, I'm just tired of people that aren't well informed on these guys.

There's no need to insult someone if you don't agree with them. Come on let's keep it civil.

If I'm the Redskins, that point never comes.

Also blaming Clausen for Notre Dame's struggles these past few season is ludicrous since Clausen didn't play a single down on defense and that defense under Charlie Wies was pathetic and absolutely the reason why the Irish sucked. Clausen can make all of the NFL throws and due to playing behind a pathetic offensive line at ND and getting hammered for three years is one tough kid who is very durable(unlike Bradford who seems to be made of glass)

Now for the draft....I wouldn't take Clausen at #4 not because he isn't worth that pick but because the Skins OFFENSIVE LINEMEN above all else. If he dropped to us in the 2nd round I'd take him before they announced whom was on the clock but I wouldn't trade away any other picks to get up to get anyone because Curato/Snyder killed this franchise by trading away picks for the past decade plus.
It is funny how the anti-Clause group blame Clausen for the losses and the pro-Clausen group completely absolves him. Somewhere in the middle I think is fair. He does have some responsibility.
The great QB's like Peyton Manning on some under-man-ed Colts teams or Ben Roethlisburger when at Miami of Ohio, won and even upsetting stronger teams so your argument is kind of weak.
Notre Dame is not a weak sister that has no top recruits show up at their door. So when ND loses to Navy, Connecticut or a bad Michigan team in one season, I think that stink has to be partly associated to Clausen. I don't blame Clausen when playing a true powerhouse team like USC, but losing to to other weak teams is not something you can not completely absolve Clausen.

Notre Dame scored more then enough points to win most or all of the games they have lost in the past two seasons due mostly to Clausen/Tate but they couldn't stop anyone. It is illogical to blame Clausen for most of those losses if not all of them.

The problem at Notre Dame in recent years is they have plenty of talent, even NFL talent on offense and NONE on defense. You cannot win that way(Defensewins right??)

Winning games in college doesn't have a whole lot to do with being successful at the NFL level at the QB position anyway. If it did Matt Lienhart would be headed to the HOF rather then riding the bench and the University of Florida would have numerous All-Pro QB's to it's credit rather then numerous QB's who didn't transition well to the NFL game. How many NCAA Football Championships do Payton Manning, Tom Brady and Bret Farve have anyway?

What matters IMO is:

Can the guy make all of the necessary throws?

Is the guy tough and durable because in the NFL a QB is going to get hit.(this is why I stay far, far away from Bradford especially with a high 1st round pick)

Will said player work hard at his craft and study film to assure his success?

Does said player have the leadership qualities you look for in a QB(this would be the only question mark with Clausen for me, while all of the other available QB's have question marks of their own).

I'd rather draft a QB with a question mark next to leadership then next to durability like Bradford.

With all of that said I do not support drafting Clausen unless he falls to us in the 2nd round.

IMO he will have the best NFL career of any of the available QB's in this draft and he is by far the most NFL ready.

Re: At what point would you Trade Up to get Jimmy Clausen?

Give me opinions on top availible QB and which value ranking for the draft. Mine:

1. Bradford...to me the easily the best QB availible...Top ten pick
2. Clausen .... really by a hair over McCoy... 20-30 picks 1st round
3. McCoy .... I ve heard best for Shanny's system, great release 20-30 picks 1st round
4. Tebow .... Intangibles king...late 2nd round pick

Re: At what point would you Trade Up to get Jimmy Clausen?

I dont know if i'd trade up for clausen, but if shanahan really liked him, i'd certainly trade DOWN for him. If the ultra-realistic 49ers-redskins trade (Warpath Mock Draft - Start Time 3/15, 8am)happened, id certainly consider this:

13. Notre Dame QB Jimmy Clausen
17. Rutgers OT Anthony Davis
49. Stanford RB Toby Gerhart or best OT on the board.

I just don't see Clausen falling past Buffalo. I wouldn't mind us swapping with them or Seattle though and moving up in the second.

#1 I wouldn't draft Clausen that high
#2 I wouldn't draft QB's with our first 2 picks
#3 Davis makes alot better OT than QB

Re: At what point would you Trade Up to get Jimmy Clausen?

The bottom line is that no one knows how any of these QBs will fare in the NFL. College performance is just not reliable enough evidence to evaluate how a guy is going to blossom or implode. Ryan Leaf? Tom Brady? That being said: looking at intangibles, I have always liked the work ethic, attitude and passion with which Tim Tebow plays. However I still wouldn't take him unless he fell to round 3 and then there would have to be some trading and such to move up to get him there. First two picks should be of need. O line, LB, CB or O line again.

Re: At what point would you Trade Up to get Jimmy Clausen?

LOL, oops. i've edited my post. I also would prefer that we not draft clausen, but i prefaced my statement on if Shanahan was sold on him. Rex Grossman is obviously not the long-term answer and by tendering Campbell at a 1st round level only, it seems we dont expect Campbell to be the long-term answer either. so, somehow, we need to find ourselves a starting QB beyond 2010.

Keeping the same trade scenario, i'd love to see something like this:

-Washington trades #4 and #37 to SF for #13, #17, and #49.

-Washington trades #49 to Minnesota for Sage Rosenfels and #62. (This would make Rosenfelds equal 126 points, or a late 3rd rounder).

-The skins would end up with a 2010 Starting Quarterback, #13, #17, and #62.

In that scenario, my dream draft would go this way:


1 (#13) - Rutgers OT Anthony Davis
1 (#17) - SoCal OT Charles Brown
via Trade - Sage Rosenfels, starting QB
2 (#62) - Carolina NT Cam Thomas
4 (#101) - Connecticut DE/OLB Lindsey Witten
5 (#132) - Oregon RB LeGarrette Blount
7 (#196) - BPA

Apparently Brown is slipping and a number 17 pick might not be necessary, some have him sliding back into the 2nd

wow, i hadnt heard that.... although i doubt he'd slip all the way to our 2nd round pick (at the bottom of the 2nd round after the trade with the vikings). In that case, i'd take Campbell or Saffold at 17. From what i've read, theres a substantial drop-off in talent after the first 6-7 OTs, where as theres not much difference between the top tackles not named okung.

Re: At what point would you Trade Up to get Jimmy Clausen?

Didn't realize Brown was slipping either. He's always been, as far as I know, pegged in the late 1st to early 2nd.

Saffold is rising a lot. Eagles, among other teams, are showing strong interest in him and could be targeting him with their 1st round pick
