My QB Plan

I know we all want to see the Panthers in the big dance next year, but if we are honest we know that most likely will not happen.  We could go get Mcnabb or another veteran QB and bench Clausen, which I don't think is the best option.

If we bring in a vet to start, best case scenario is that we got 7-9 or 8-8 and we are to far down the draft board to have a great pick and we still don't know if Clausen can be the guy, and have a QB that is on his way out of the league or getting to old to start.  I think we should bring in a veteran back up, but we should keep Clausen the starter. If he becomes a great QB then we have our franchise guy.  If he is as bad as he was last year, then we are right at the top of the draft next year for Luck and we know Clausen is a bust. 

It might make for a painful year, but I really think this would be the best option for the long term future. Oh and we should def. draft Fairly no. 1

Re: My QB Plan

I honestly think we should find out what we have in Tony Pike. He's prototypical QB size for this era, and he's got a great arm. I'd like to see Steve do a piece on what he's been doing since he went on IR last season. Has he been working out to try and land the starting gig over Pickles or what? I don't think we talk about him enough. I'd rather see Pike start over Pickles and have a vet behind him, with Pickles riding family dog at #3 on the depth chart. The scenario would be the same as what talbot suggested, only we'd finally get a chance to see what we have in Pike.

Re: My QB Plan

I have no problem with that either.  But we went say....6-10 or 7-9 with Pike, what would we really know about either QB.  We couldn't be certain about Clausen and depending about how the games played out, we might not be certain about Pike.

I have given that some thought too!

Re: My QB Plan

Pike is the Wild card in all of this.  I think he has a shot to be something if he is given time to learn the system.  Pike showed up late due to some NCAA rule and was behind the 8 ball all year.  I would rather see what Clausen has and if he can't cut it then give Pike a shot mid-year. Either way we need to know if either can play ball.
