[QUOTE=k.Rhodes25;2985330]I think Clemens can be the starter. I think he played well in 07 considering how bad the OL was. How many times he was getting hit. I feel he gets better as the game goes on and really steps up in crunch time. He outplayed Pennington that year, he was more effective in leading scoring drives. I think in a run offense that does PI and has the QB throw like 25 times a game he can be good. Hes also mobile which is good as he can pick up yards on the ground.[/QUOTE]
Clemens was 3-5 on that horrible 2007 team and could have easily been 5-3 with some breaks going his way. I believe he has already proven himself and is more than adequate. The question is can he be great, and we'll never know unless he gets achance to start behind a real O Line with a good running game. Frankly, I think the Jets best options are on their roster. I like what I've seen from Clemens behind a fire-drill O Line and I like Ratliffe's potential. As far as a veteran presence, if the coaching staff thinks one is needed, I'd pick someone off the scrap heap near the end of training camp. There's always some version of Brad Johnson, Charlie Batch, et al... available.
As far as the draft, they should not pick a QB unless a "Flacco" appears at teh combine. Remember, Flacco was on nobody's radar until he performed at the combine.
BTW, I like what Rex said when a reporter pressed him on his choice for QB. Rex's repsonse: "Joe Namath".
[QUOTE=southparkcpa;2985359]tex, don't you have something to do today better than harass us?
I am to tired to tell you GFY..... so I won't.:D[/QUOTE]
Tex his still licking his wounds after his POS HC failed to guide the Pats into the playoffs despite having, by far, the easiest schedule in the NFL, a franchise QB, and fewer injuries than the Ravens.
[QUOTE=Jet Nut;2985383]And you came to this well thought out conclusion after seeing him play all of 8 games behind a horrible line with no running game.
That's what I don't understand with some fans?? Chad a seasoned Vet won 1 game and KC 3 behind that line so unless he gets another chance and fails who knows for sure what he can do??:huh: Oh Chad had better stats while losing, I forgot that's more important then wins..Which is why stats are for losers..;)
Kellen Clemens has thrown more than twice as many interceptions as td passes and he absolutely sucked in TC and preseason last summer. The Jets are trying to give themselves leverage in negotiation with a free agent quarterback or a possible trade for someone like Derek Anderson.
Ofcourse the Jets aren't going to publicly say Kellen Clemens sucks, they did however bench him for Chad Pennington and trade for Brett Favre.
[QUOTE=JV51;2985284]Did anyone else just hear this on WFAN?
He questions it because he says when March comes around, and FA hits and Draft and possible trade targets such as Derek Anderson, will the Jets be singing the same tune.[/QUOTE]
Of course Jets aren't that high on K Clemens anymore. What do they get telling every team they think hes garbage. They are going to try and talk clemens up the next couiple months, hoping someone wants to bite. Remember Mangini kept telling you that Vilma was a great fit for his 3-4.(every Jet fan could see he wasn't) How about all the times he was talking up Justin Miller as a CB. So be leery of coaches praises without seeing the results for yourself.. Don't be supprised when you hear how much better V gholston looks this offseason.
10:05 AM: "The Jets are really high on Brett Ratliff."
11:05 AM: "The Jets think Kellen Clemens may be their QB of the Future."
12:05 PM: "The Jets are hoping that Brett Favre returns next season."
1:05 PM: "The Jets are supposedly showing interest in signing FA QB [I][U]fillin the name of the week[/U][/I]."
2:05 PM: "Rumors circulating around the league are that the Jets are interested in trading for [I][U]fillin the name of the week[/U][/I] to be their next starting QB."
Looking back at that im so glad McCariens is no where near this team. Also, I didnt realize that last drive the Ravens didn't blitz once the whole time. Hmm..sounds familiar..sending just 3 or 4 guys and letting the qb drive down the field.
