SI’s Don Banks writes that Jimmy Clausen is lacking support from anyone other than GM Marty Hurney.
“Don’t think this is really news, but Carolina general manager Marty Hurney is said to be the only one in the building in Charlotte who still believes 2010 second-round pick Jimmy Clausen might be up to the task of handling the Panthers starting job,” SI’s Don Banks wrote on Thursday.
Banks continues by writing that “everyone else in Carolina, and many coaches and personnel men around the league for that matter, thinks the Panthers have to draft a franchise quarterback this year.”
Interestingly enough, Hurney may be falling out of favor in Carolina since he recently moved the teams second-round pick in this years draft so that they could take Armanti Edwards last year. Two wasted draft picks on top of a 2-14 season that was as miserable as it looks on paper could be enough for the Panthers to consider a change.
