    "Jimmy Clausen will have surgery on his right toe and will be out 2 - 3 months, but will throw in April for scouts."

    Now theres the right one, lol ;)

    No biggie I don't think. He'll still be able to throw pre-draft, and his biggest competition at QB, Bradford, is coming off an injury of his own.

        Yep, combine is in February. Its unfortunate but if Clausen is ready to go in April for the scouts and in private workouts I don't think he will be hurt to much by this.

          Seems like a real opportunity for Ryan Mallett to enter the draft.

            timing is a little strange considering ND did not play in a bowl


            The way it is

                not a big deal, as long as he throws at some point he will be fine. 40 doesnt matter for him

                  if hes still going to throw then he should be alright.

                  only thing is, if he throws mid april (weeks before the draft) teams might have already made their minds up with some players. Especially the rams. They could be set on suh by that time

                      Well, Clausen's toe is probably less of a concern than Suh's knees..

                        You're dreaming man. The Rams are taking Suh. Slam Dunkie.

                              It doesn't even matter the tickets....it's the now yearly phenomenon of a fan base of a team who has been absolutely dreadful getting dead-set against a possible franchise QB.

                              Every ******* year this seems to happen and it's rather annoying.

                              First we had Falcons fans dead set against Matt Ryan...oh how they wanted Glenn Dorsey...Ryan wasn't franchise QB material and threw too many picks in college and was just being pushed up draft boards because of a bad QB class...blah blah blah. And this was after their last "franchise QB" train-wrecked the franchise by killing some dogs and leaving them high and dry along with their head coach bailing after half a season. Talk about a team in need of a new "face of the franchise" to turn things all around....and they got it. Even Scott was believing the crazy fans about Dorsey over Ryan but...the Falcons knew what they were doing on draft day and have turned things around nicely.

                              Then last year...the Lions, who were coming off an 0-16 year and were near finishing up a decade in which they had the lowest winning percentage of any team in any sport in any decade since records were kept. (No joke, just read about it on ESPN Page 2.) They're dead set against a QB...Stafford was just a strong arm, he should have stayed in school, he didn't dominate despite having a LOT of talent around him.....the pitiful o-line in Detroit wouldn't be able to protect him....oh how they wanted Jason Smith. They too badly needed a new "face of the franchise" and I believe they got one. Two wins this season is a LOT better than zero and at times, they showed some flashes of talent and look to have a somewhat promising future. A little too early to tell but I think things will work out for them as well.

                              So Rams fans....shut it. Any one of you can argue how Clausen (or Bradford) isn't worth it and Suh will be so much better...but you're in the same damn boat of the past years' most awful teams. This is your 3rd straight year picking in the top 2, and all that money you threw at Marc Bulger has been a colossal waste. You need a new "face of the franchise" too, and that isn't going to be Suh.

                              So unless and until the Rams turn in a card on draft day with the name "Suh" on it, I'm not believing that it's going to happen.
