Hello Cincy Jungle!
Jaxon here with Cat Scratch Reader, your SBN site for all things Carolina Panthers. I'm here to answer any questions you might have about the Panthers, or at least someone from my site will answer them. It usually ends up being a free-for-all by Saturday but I hope my fellow Panther fans mind their manners (I can only hope ;)
So what questions do you have for these Panthers from down South? I'll go ahead and answer what I assume will be an immediate question. I'm sure you've already heard that rookie Jimmy Clausen will make his first professional start Saturday against your Bengals. Yes we are mostly happy about that. Not that we think Clausen is going to set the world on fire but more that he gives us just as much chance to win as Matt Moore at this point. Moore needs to regroup for a week or so but we probably haven't seen the last of him.
Clausen has looked about as good as you could expect a rookie getting action but then again I'm setting the bar very high. Right now just a QB that doesn't turn the ball over would be an upgrade. Clausen seems to have the short passing game down but is more likely to throw the ball away than he is to force it downfield. Yet he's bound to throw a pick or two if he has to throw the ball 30 times. I'll stop here though and open it up.
