Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

I wouldn't write him off just yet, he's only entering his 3rd year, he's worth a look

He ended the season 3rd on their depth chart and he's due a $920K roster bonus in a few weeks. So.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

Told you Clausen was going to be available.

That said, Derek Anderson is a FA and it's not entirely out of the realm of possibility that the Panthers let both go and bring back Clausen at a lower price.

But I doubt that happens. I thin Clausen is on another roster next year. Most speculate it would be the Broncos because of the John Fox connection

We wouldn't have to pay that $920K RB though. We'd sign him to a brand new contract.

Two reasons: One, he kinda looks like him, two I have this habit of fusing peoples names together. Ryan Clark, Clark Kent, Ryan Tannehill. Ergo Ryan "Clark Kent" Tannehill.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

I think I would like to have Clausen as one of our 3 QB's next year. Still young and has not had much of an opportunity yet.

DeAngelo Williams was hurt most of the year as well as J. Stewart andSteve Smith missed a couple of games. Add that to the fact that the OL didn't block well, and neither Olsen nor Shockey were on the team at the time of his rookie year. Not sure I would blame his "development" soley on Jimmy Clausen.

They didn't win only 2 games because JC played poorly.

Yeah I know I was just saying that RB is a lot for a 3rd stringer- prob a big factor in being close to cutting him.

It would be great if all the top prospects started throwing at the combine.
I hope,like Cam Newton, all top QB prospects decide to throw from now on.

I agree. I remember a lot of fans liking him and thinking he would turn out pretty good. I wonder what happened? was it the coaching change? or the system. I wouldn't mind kicking the tires. He can't be any worse then Crompton.... can he?

The only negative I can see is if he's not ready or has not been working out, which I doubt is the problem. The other negative is him throwing to WR's he's not worked with and could make him look bad.

But does it really matter? If the Colts are set on taking Luck then it shouldn't matter if he sucks it up or if he comes out blazing. The Colts would be better served to tell him not to run the 40 so he doesn't hurt his foot or knee or hammie.

I would prefer Ponder to Sam Bradford. I thought Ponder displayed a better arm last year (maybe because of indoor home games?) than he did in college. He made all the throws. His problem was that he misread a lot of coverages as a rookie. Bradford's problems are more about physical limitation.

Really? I never really thought arm strength was Bradford's issue. Then again, I never really watched the Rams beyond the one Redskins game...
