Jimmy Clausen, not Matt Schaub, starting for Ravens

The Chiefs will NOT be seeing Matt Schaub at quarterback on Sunday. They will be seeing Jimmy Clausen, who has been named the starter for the game.

Clausen is 1-12 as a starting quarterback and is completing just 53 percent of passes in his career. It would be a MAJOR upset if he is able to put up enough points on the NFL's best defense to win. This is good news for the Chiefs.

There was a time during the 2010 NFL Draft that I thought the Kansas City Chiefs might draft Clausen. The Chiefs had Charlie Weis at the time and Weis had coached Clausen at Notre Dame. However, the Chiefs didn't draft him. The Panthers did, and he made his way to a few teams over the past five years including the Bears and now the Ravens.
