Jimmy Clausen is the new Carolina Panthers starting QB
Matt Moore benched after his poor start to the season.

Schefter reporting:

Doubt he's going to do much better than Moore.

D-Unit 09-20-2010 02:05 PM

But Claussen is the future, so let him take his lumps.

If you've decided that Moore is not good enough, might as well try Claussen out to see if you made the right call in the draft. Could cost Fox his job, but I doubt the guy will be without a gig for long...

Word is Fox is gone at the end of the season anyways, might as well see what Clausen can do in the meantime. Personally I don't think he will do any better then Moore.

He's in a great situation. Above average offensive line and running backs plus Steve Smith. It will be hard to make excuses for him if he doesn't play well.

I think Jimmy will do okay but not great. He is tough and good in running for his life.

RaiderNation 09-20-2010 02:46 PM

He is going to put up numbers like Sanchez did last year, but no get the franchise QB hype since he wont make the playoffs and isnt in New York

Bengals usually struggle against rookie QB's too so I'm kinda worried... Saying that I bet $50 on the Bengals to cover a -3 spread lol

NY+Giants=NYG 09-20-2010 03:05 PM

That team is terrible. They aren't going to do much with him at the helm. I'd be very surprised if he can turn them around.

SchizophrenicBatman 09-20-2010 03:06 PM

the OLine blows right now

we never found a replacement at RG for Keydrick Vincent (not that Vincent was great or anything, but we have trash there right now) and Jeff Otah is out

and Jordan Gross suddenly sucks

I'm not going to make any excuses for Clausen but this isn't the cozy situation everyone's made it out to be

oh god this is gonna be bad... they aren't doing anything, i doubt a rookie qb is gonna save them.

tjsunstein 09-20-2010 03:28 PM

Jimmy Clausen is the last shot that John Fox has at keeping his job because Matt Moore is losing it for him.

ElectricEye 09-20-2010 03:42 PM

Think it's safe to move Matt Moore to career backup category. Really liked him coming out, but he is what he is.

Finally. Hello winning season.

SuperMcGee 09-20-2010 04:27 PM

Don't really want to make a thread about it, but RYAN FITZPATRICK IS THE NEW BILLS STARTER!!

It might have something to do with him being not good. Thats just a hunch though.

vidae 09-20-2010 04:41 PM

Or it could be the hair.

Addict 09-20-2010 04:42 PM

I would kinda like it if Clausen proves everyone wrong.

Would you really want this guy to be the QB of your team? Plus the dude takes pics with fat chicks.

Their season is dying with Moore at the helm so they might as well give Clausen the chance.
