Jimmy Clausen to be inactive on Sunday?

Things haven't gone well for Jimmy Clausen this offseason. The Panthers drafted Cam Newton first overall and promptly handed him the keys to the proverbial jalopy car in Charlotte.

There was chatter that Clausen ended up falling as far as third on the depth chart -- he's like a homeless man's Tim Tebow! -- and according to our Panthers Rapid Reporter Steve Reed, it's "possible" that the Panthers only activate two quarterbacks for Sunday's game in Arizona.

The idea here is that the Panthers could simply use someone like Armanti Edwards (a quarterback in college) as the third quarterback in the total nightmare scenario where both Newton and would-be backup Derek Anderson are knocked out of the game.

"We have options to look at and I'm not going to tell you," Rivera said.

Well, at least Rivera's being blunt with his secrecy. That's better than coach talk.

Randomly, while we're talking about the Panthers, here's something that I find interesting that might not be interesting: the last time Newton came to Arizona, he was in Glendale for the BCS Championship. He played OK there. (In fact, he won all the Tostitos.)

I guess the potential, but-not-really relevance there is that Newton has traveled a couple time zones for a football game and done just fine.

And, hell, more people watched that game anyway.

According to Mel Crapper, he was the most ready to play QB in the 2010 Draft. 
Scott Wright of DraftCountdown.com also loved Claussen, and even said he'd be a better pro than Sam Bradford. So Kiper's not the only one who was fooled.

Is there something else going on here (like Claussen's legendary ego rubbing the Panthers brass the wrong way), or does #2 just really suck?

And this is news to who? Notre Dame fans who still root for this puke.........  According to Mel Crapper, he was the most ready to play QB in the 2010 Draft.  And people actually believed him and still watch ESPN for the Draft. (rolls eyes).

Anyone looking forward to Sunday Countdown on 9-11? Berman is stale, annoying, and has been for years. Jackson is still ranting about Spygate, Keyshawn does interior design on the side, and he sucks at that too. Cris Carter I can handle. Mort was so inaccurrate they had to steal Adam Shefter from NFL Network to get some credibility back.  Sal Palantonio is an Eagles Homer and he never braves the cold, always has a wool coat, muffs, and mittens. MNF is done with Goofy, Dumbo, and Grumpy, which makes sense since ESPN is owned by ABC/Disney.
