    Clausen is behind a panthers line that has looked pretty abysmal though. That said Bradford is just doing an excellent job right now.

      I thought Clausen was put into a difficult situation and did well. He's going to be a very good QB in this league.
      Lol. This is like the 4th time I've read this recently. Funny because after the draft his situation was so perfect and easily the best situation you could be put into. Best RB tandem in the league, an elite WR in Steve Smith, a running team that doesn't rely on the passing game, etc etc. Now all of a sudden it's a "difficult situation"?


      If the Panthers are a "difficult situation", what does that make the Rams? It's really hard to have a better situation for a rookie QB then what the Panthers have.

        Just because Clausen played worse than Bradford doesn't mean he didn't show promise. You didn't see the game, or any of the Panthers games, you've only seen the stat sheet.

        The offensive line that the Panthers relied on last year is missing Otah and have a 2nd year late round pick at guard, who's there for his run blocking ability.

        What's happening is that they're stacking the box on the early downs, double covering smith and the back up RT isn't holding down his piece of the puzzle. Neither has Wharton for the most part this year.

        For whatever reason, the play calling is allowing defense to readily key on what the Panthers are doing. Otah comes back the offense will look a little better, but Clausen showed a lot of promise and ffs it was his first NFL start.

        Peyton Manning didn't have a QB rating above 66 until his 7th start, no rookie QB regardless of their situation plays well the first three or four times they lace up their cleats in the NFL there's maybe two or three in the modern era and the only recent one is Matt Ryan.

        He looked good where it counts, he was decisive, he lead the huddle, changed up some plays successfully at the line, drove down the field well on two occasions only to be let down by fumbles and dropped passes in the end zone.

        He looked a lot better than Matt Moore give him some time.

          The offensive line is playing like ****. What was a strength has become a weakness. That's why Williams and Stewart have been anonymous this season.

            Somehow the Rams line has jelled together, while the Panthers line has fallen apart. Whats up with Jordan Gross?

            Even look at their running game its horrible, at the start of the season its looked like a good place for Jimmy, and horrible for Sam. My how the tables have turned.

                Thats true. Manning looked horrible as well, as a rookie.

                  Anyone trying to suggest that Sam Bradford is in a more advantageous position then Jimmy Clausen is an absolute idiot, regardless of how bad the Panthers may be playing at this particular moment. Sam Bradford has elevated the play of the absolutely atrocious supporting cast the Rams handed him, whereas Clausen came in and played to the level of his team, which right now is just not very good. Regardless, I would take Steve Smith in triple coverage over anything the Rams have to offer at this point, and Deangelo and Jstew is almost unfair in helping out a rookie QB.

                    The problem is, no matter how much talent Carolina has, they're still coached by John Fox and his crew of inept patsies.

                      can't find any? that's because you completely made it up so that you can play the poor, oppressed victim. it's seriously pathetic.
                      Someone replace your tampons with sand paper eh?

                      I was simply pointing out it's one game and its incredibly foolish to make conclusions especially when the Cincinatti Carolina game was one of the least broadcast 1pm games (i.e. I know the vast majority of people who're commenting on Clausen's play didn't watch the game and likely haven't seen the previous two).

                      There're offensive problems beyond , Williams, Clausen and Gross who played quite well against Cincinnati. I've already pointed them out.

                        Where did I ever mention that Clausen didn't show promise, or the stat sheet, or any of the other useless points you brought up? Where did I even act like I saw the game, or that I even commented on what happened in the game? way to jump to conclusions to be a homer as fast as you can and bring up irrelevant points to things I never even came close to mentioning.

                        Yea, because the Rams O-line is 10x better then the Panthers line right? Don't forget people were saying Clausen>Bradford and that they were in the same class, but a good QB makes a bad O-line better. The Rams are terrible in pass blocking, and run blocking.






                        Peyton Manning didn't have a QB rating above 66 until his 7th start, no rookie QB regardless of their situation plays well the first three or four times they lace up their cleats in the NFL there's maybe two or three in the modern era and the only recent one is Matt Ryan.

                        He looked a lot better than Matt Moore give him some time.


                        Ah yes, the ol' "well Peyton Manning sucked as a rookie and look how he turned out" argument, we hear that every single year, about every single rookie QB, so that's nothing new.


                        Once again, where did I once mention how bad Clausen looked, played, or will be in my post? I'd love to hear what you come up with because I never did.


                        I responded to people talking so much about how all of a sudden Carolina is such a "difficult situation" for Clausen to step into. Oh yea what a poor guy. If only he had 1 above average RB to hand off too, because most QB's can do much much better then having Deangelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart.


                        Maybe if he had an elite WR to throw to? That's surely help. Maybe if he had 2 above average bookend tackles to protect him? Obviously if you don't have Oher and Gaither there your QB will play like a bum.


                        The irony of it all is you will hype up any Carolina player, to the max, even when he doesn't deserve it. But now to keep Clausen from getting trashed, all of a sudden your going to trash any and every Panther because they all just make him look bad.


                        APS hit the nail on the head. Bradford elevated the play of the entire team, that's what you want to see from a QB. But before you jump to the homer rage and start going into a rant over all the Panthers that magically suck on your team now, take the time to actually read what someone is saying, because I didn't even mention the play of Clausen, or what he did in the game, nor did I try and act like I watched the game.


                        I commented on the surrounding pieces. If you want a QB to step into a better team/situation/supporting cast then the one Clausen came into, you'd have to expect a playoff team to trade up, draft a QB in the top 10, and sit him 2-3 years until you filled every piece on the team in the process.

                        • You want to see ugly ? Imagine Clausen playing on the Rams with their line and WR's. Bradford's mobility, accuracy and smarts are making him into a top 5 future QB. Imagine if he had a couple weapons. The Rams could and should be 3-0, but playing Arizona, the Raiders and the Skins aren't real measuring sticks. Those 3 teams are bad, real bad.

                          Comment


                          • MAn. Bradford has like 5 yards per pass, more ints than picks, sub 60% completion percentage.

                            The fellatio for young QBs that play below average instead of terrible is ridiculous on this site.

                            If a rookie QB comes in and completes more than 50% of his passes, he's Peyton MAnning, every year.

                              So you're getting angry because I said it's silly to comment on how he looked without seeing the game?

                              Relax, I'm not attacking you or your analysis, it was more directed at the fact that the perceived strengths of the team have failed at this point in the season. Which is having a massive impact.

                              I agree Roethlisberger and Rogers have both made their lines look worse holding on to the ball too long and Moore did the same thing to the Panthers' line. Sure the Panthers line is better than the Rams' but right now the right side needs Otah back if it's going to return to form.

                              Any line missing it's right side starters from last year is going to have some inconsistency early in the season. In fact, Clausen was sacked once yesterday and that's when Crocker came flying in unblocked on a blitz. The previous two weeks, moore's indecision caused 4 per game.

                              I know a QB makes an offensive line look better, I saw a huge difference when the QB makes a read and passes the ball instead of getting happy feet. Clausen made the line look a world better.

                              DeAngelo Williams sucked for 2 years too, Sanchez looked pretty terrible last year, Matt Ryan seemed to regress his second year, Mario Williams didn't light it up as a rookie, the majority of players take time, that was my point. It doesn't matter how bad a rookie looks on the stat sheet early on in their career regardless of position it matters what you can see. That's the point I was trying to make. I didn't exactly go godwin with it.

                              I'm sorry for pointing out the obvious it wasn't necessarily directed just at you.

                              I perceived that you were saying that because Bradford's situation is worse and he performed better than Clausen did yesterday stat wise that it's a foregone conclusion Clausen won't develop as armageddon and Brodeur were so quick to declare Bradford the best QB from the class. If my perception was wrong, I wholeheartedly apologise for jumping to unfair conclusions.

                              I'm not saying he doesn't have it easier than some walk into, but take into account that the right hand side of his line, what was the bull dozer side is missing, he's got rookies as his wide receivers outside of smith and he's facing a stacked box it's not as great a situation as it appeared on the surface.

                              With the line and the backs it was natural to assume that the Panthers could run on anyone, arrogant, homerish, whatever, it wasn't exactly an inaccurate assessment based on the last two seasons. Bad Play calling, bad execution on the line has prevented that from happening, when it comes time to pass, play calling keeping the backs and tight ends into block instead of using them as receivers where they'd be better served has forced Gettis a late pick and LaFell and dinged up 3rd rounder into the roll opposite a double covered Smith. Even Ronde Barber said "there's not much outside of Smith". They're just too inexperienced and that's causing some issues on the drives.

                              The way the team is built by Fox and Hurney this year is failing, Richardson refused to open the cheque book and we dumped our veterans. What more do you want me to say? What should be happening isn't.

                              I'll hype any player if I think they're going to be good, I'm an optimist. I'll openly and freely admit when I'm wrong. I was wrong about Delhomme, I was wrong about Moore and I was wrong about the ability of the defense to cover the mistakes of the offense this year. The reason why I'm defending Clausen is because when I hated the pick I went back and watched his games at ND, anything I could acquire and I grew to like it, yesterday I saw a lot of promise, more than I've seen from anyone to play the position for Carolina.

                              See above, the pieces on paper look good based on the past two years, but for a reason I cannot quantify they're not playing well. I'm not saying they magically suck, quite the opposite, just that they're not playing well. Which is why I mentioned the issues with the line and the play calling. Good pieces don't mean much if they're playing badly.

                              I think part of it has to do with coaching, bad camp for key guys and lack of chemistry. It sucks but the pieces around Clausen while better on paper than Bradfords aren't playing like it.

                                Stats aren't everything. You are discounting his leadership and poise. The kid has the "it" factor.
