But the pick wasn't based on how I feel for him.
New coaching staff + new GM + aging (and as of late injury riddled) starting QB = time to find a new longterm answer. With a potential franchise QB falling to Seattle and having the chance to let him sit for a year or 2 and learn from MH, the pick was a smart one IMO.
Yeah, it's not a bad pick at all. I'm just kidding around from our conversation earlier.
Though, with Haden available, and maybe Davis too, or if Okung had been, I can't help wonder if they would take a chance and see if Clausen would still be there with their next pick.
I think there is 50/50 shot he would be in real life.
