Clausen has responded to Marty McShay’s assertion that the former Golden Domer lacks leadership skills and maturity.
“I have no idea why he says that,” Clausen told Jason Reid of the Washington Post. “People are just going to say what they want to say. But at the end of the day, I am who I am. And the people who really know who I am, know the type of person that I am — a loving, caring person [who’s] a pretty good football player and a great leader on the field and off the field.”
A loving, caring person? Really?
Clausen might actually be loving and caring. But he shouldn’t describe himself that way.
The better approach would have been to point out that he was voted a captain by his teammates. That pretty much answers any and all criticism that McShay or anyone else could direct to Clausen’s leadership.
