Without Sam Bradford, and already dire situation has become worse. In steps affable former Oregon quarterback Kellen Clemens.
Clemens knows where he stands in the organization. Now that he is the starter, he knows that may not last, too. He’s in command for at least one week. Unfortunately for him, that comes against arguably the NFL’s best secondary. We wrote about Clemens today.
Also in today’s TNT was a notebook with items on Percy Harvin and tight end Zach Miller. Offensive line coach Tom Cable has worked with Miller for all seven of the tight end’s seasons in the NFL. “What a difference the guy makes,” Cable said.
We chatted with Cable yesterday, too. When asked about Michael Bowie, the reviews were not glowing. Cable said Bowie is doing some good things in the run game and with play-action, but was not pleased he was blown by twice in Arizona, leading to Russell Wilson backside hits and fumbles.
