Jets Rookie Outperforming Veteran QBs.

I am so high on Clemens, but can this even be considered a suprise.

Rookie QB Outperforming Jets' Veterans
18th June, 2006 - 10:55 pm
Newark Star-Ledger - Rookie Kellen Clemens was the most impressive of the foursome, outperforming veterans Chad Pennington, Patrick Ramsey and Brooks Bollinger. And it wasn't even close as the media got its first up-close look of the competition.

Clemens, a second-round pick out of Oregon, displayed an exceptional arm, moxie and the leadership ability of a veteran. He has what people describe as "it."

So he's outperforming a QB-bust and a busted up QB? Not that I've very high on Clemens, or any Jets QB for this upcoming year, but he's got dynasty potential for sure.

I don't know what it says that he is looking better than the one armed bandit, a mediocre QB in a new system and a clip board warrior.

I would be more concerned if Clemens didn't look better initially.

A 3rd stringer on any CFL team could outperform the Jets quarterbacks.

I still have Penny (and at LEAST Ramsey) ahead of Kellen.

I think Ramsey, with a chance in a new offense, can be a quality starter in this league. And Kellen should probably wait a year or two before he gets a shot.

Any player described as having moxie is immediately my number one fantasy pick this year.

I agree that Clemens is #3 at best right now.

I have to disagree on Ramsey. I lived in the DC area during his time as a starter.

The skins weren't very good during that time but Ramsey just didn't seem like he improved much as the season went along.

Maybe Ramsey can improve some but I think Clemens has a much higher ceiling.

Jaworski was gushing about him after the draft.

The Jets aren't going to be very good this year so if Chad falters
I wouldn't be surprised to see Clemens get the nod if he impresses during camp.

I'd definitely count Ramsey out now. If Pennington injures himself during the season, the Jets will likely look to the future and put Clemens in there, especially if he's impressing the coaches as much as he supposedly is. I like Clemens as much as Penny and more than Ramsey at this point.

I think I might agree with your assessment of Ramsey - give him an ideal opportunity to succeed. Put him at the hands of a proven quarterback-friendly coach (Mike Holmgren and Steve Mariucci, for example) and I think he'll do well. Given good guidance, it looks like he has the tools to be a good NFL QB.
