Panthers QB Jimmy Clausen Reportedly Had a Rough Weekend

Mike Florio of reports that, despite the NFL Network's report that Carolina Panthers second-round quarterback Jimmy Clausen drew "rave reviews" at last weekend's mini-camp, sources tell him that Clausen "pissed off multiple receivers", and that Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith thinks "Jimmy is a punk".

"We're told that Clausen already has pissed off multiple receivers and at least one tight end by "barking" at them during minicamp practice, and that receiver Steve Smith "basically thinks Jimmy is a punk." Though Clausen is regarded as "smart" and unlikely to make mental mistakes, the initial thinking is that he uses excessive confidence (to the point that it's being perceived by some as arrogance) to compensate for lack of arm strength, size, and overall athleticism."

Perhaps a few the bottles of Cactus Cooler soda Clausen brought with him from California to Charlotte at Steve Smith's request broke or went flat?

Surprise! Surprise!

Clausen has been this way since he was playing midget football in California.

I witnessed him scream at a coach when he was 12 years old. His old man was standing 3 feet away and never said a work. He is what he appears to be Good luck Panther fans
