Good read. I'm still surprised Ponder wasn't invited

I love Gruden. He's hilarious during these QB camps.
newton stock dropped after this show

looked lost with gruden and his responses were pretty stupid

on top of that, when they started tossing the football, Cam threw the ball wide to the wr (still caught) and gruden says "Good, right between the numbers"

Good read, did anyone else do it in the Gruden voice in their heads and get all excited? I love that guy on TV.

In the same way people love Charlie Sheen...

The part where he compared himself and all the criticism he's receiving to loading a gun with bullets

It seems pretty clear from this article that Gruden was most impressed with Dalton. He gives a lot of praise to each QB but he really heaps it on Dalton.

I've watched all of the episodes so far except for Locker (I hear that his was impressive) and I was most impressed with Dalton too. I'd rank their interviews like this...

1) Dalton

... big gap ...

2) Gabbert

... Grand Canyon sized gap ...

3a) Newton
3b) Mallett

No one liked Clausen.

I wonder why he wasn't invited?

That made me hate Cam Newton so much more

He tries to be witty and clever when all he could've said is I use it as motivation.

He grilled Jimmy Clausen

Quote:
Clausen is coming out as a true junior and is the youngest of the quarterbacks I met. We hit the film hard during our time together. He's the kind of guy you have to kick out of your office or he would just stick around forever.

He is the all-time leading passer at Notre Dame and he did it in just three years. Joe Montana, Joe Theismann, Brady Quinn -- the Fighting Irish have had a history of great quarterbacks, so his production is astonishing.

Clausen suffered a serious injury early in the season against Purdue and fought through it for multiple games. This wasn't just a mild turf toe as it was portrayed, but was serious enough that it required surgery. The toughness he displayed is a key component in a winning quarterback. It affected his practice time and mobility.

Before the injury, he showed escape-ability. He's been in a check-down audible system. He can throw the ball on the back shoulder. He can put the ball where he wants it and drive it when he has to, and that's important. He does it from the pocket, works underneath the center and in the gun.

I admire how he brought his team from behind to win four times this season, and he helped put them in position to win down the stretch, coming from behind, several other times. At crunch time, he really delivered.

When I look at quarterbacks and see how they play when they are tied or behind in the fourth quarter, that tells me a lot about them. Clausen excelled at crunch time. The statistics speak for themselves and he has shown dramatic improvement every year. He's a polished, confident kid and I like his upside. I think he's really going to work at it and continue to get stronger.

I've watched all of the episodes so far except for Locker (I hear that his was impressive) and I was most impressed with Dalton too. I'd rank their interviews like this...

3a) Newton
3b) Mallett

how can you put Mallett last?

He broke down his play(which was way more complex then the rest of them) very well. Having to read zone, man and blitz presures with hot reads. The most ready to play imo.

I agree with the part you said Mallet shouldn't be last. He can at least name a play they run. Newton couldn't even give 1 name of a pass play they run. He couldn't come up with the verbiage for just 1 play!
Btw, did anyone see the Gruden Camp with Nick Fairley? He sounded dumb as could be. His only responses were pretty much "Oh yeah" and "you gotta be".
