Telling Comments from Teammates on the QB Decision

Cimini offers some inside scoop on how the locker room may feel about Mark Sanchez starting at quarterback.

Clemens really disappointed. Players told me they expected more from him, considering he had a three-year head start in the offense. They said he was tight, playing not to make mistakes.

This is very important. Situations like these can be delicate in the locker room. Had Clemens played better, pehaps the veteran leaders on the team would have wanted him in the lineup instead of the big money rookie. Clemens didn't play well enough to garner major support. It seems like the team is fully behind Sanchez because based on camp, he is the best quarterback on the team.
