Jimmy Claussen

Postby Skinsfan55 » Thu Apr 22, 2010 9:28 pm

Jimmy Claussen is falling like a stone. The Vikings are coming up here in a couple picks, and you gotta believe they'll take a long look at him, then the Browns, Raiders and Bills will have a pass early 2nd round.

1.) You have to imagine if the Redskins knew Claussen might be available at their second round pick, they may have held off on McNabb.

2.) It looks more and more like a QB needy team will be left out in the cold and a market may emerge for JC.

What do you guys think?

The Redskins are not interested in Claussen - we need a really good QB - but right now we just need to help this franchise
RG3 is now learning how to play QB in the NFL - Mike & Kyle did not help with the transition

as to #1... you hit the nail on the head brotha. I think someone is about to get a major bargain. hopefully it's us. doesn't sound like Shanny is interested though now that we've made our bed with McNabb.

They could have imagine Claussen, Tebow, and McCoy would be around for day two and decided McNabb for a 2nd rounder would be better.

It appears QBs projected to be selected in the 2nd and 3rd rounds will now fall to the 3rd and 4th rounds :shock:

Remember how "lucky" we were to "steal" Taylor Jacobs at the start of the second round? Or how we picked up steals of quality quarterbacks twice at the end of the first? Ramsey and JC, those were the days...

I don't think we'll do anything to move up to get Claussen, but it is one of those things that might come back to haunt us. i.e. If Claussen ends up becoming a complete stud somewhere, we'll have to face up that we probably could have gotten our LT AND Claussen if we'd held on to the McNabb pick.

I can't see Claussen leading any team to the promise land, but I can see him being a decent QB at some point in time. After he kicks hit a few times by the big boys he will realize that is not in Kansas anymore.

Don't worry about it Riggo.. just remember that we have a QB who has been playing in the NFC Beast his whole career.. put it like this my friend, you'd rather have a guy who needs to learn how to play in the NFC Beast or a guy who's mastered the NFC Beast? :lol:

I say mastered because McNabb has killed the NFC Beast all those times he went to the NFC Champ. games.

I like Claussen but I'd take Dono anyday

Man, I'm a big McNabb fan. Even as much as I hate the Eagles, I've always respected McNabb, and I'm glad to have him. I get your point too, that McNabb is probably a safer bet than Claussen. At least we're not betting that Tim Tebow is going to be a better QB! That pick took some cojones!

And even if Claussen turns out to be the second coming of Joe Montana, there will be at least 28 other teams that passed on him in the first round too, right?

You can play that game with every decision you do and don't make across time. It gets you nowhere. You can only make decisions ex-ante, not ex-post.
