Miserable

footballAmazing. This week the Ravens signed journeyman backup Jimmy Clausen, who has a 1-11 career record as a starter and was so miserable in his games this year that the Bears cut him midseason. Meanwhile, a revamped Tim Tebow, with a 9-7 record, a playoff win, and who is a dual threat as a runner and a passer, continues to wait.

Please don’t tell me Clausen is better than Tebow. If there were two evenly matched teams, you had to choose one, and you had to bet your life savings on the outcome, which guy would you really want to be the quarterback on your team? If you say, “Clausen,” I’d like to sell you some oceanfront property in Omaha.
