Q-and-A with Kellen Clemens

Q)What was your reaction to the front office signing Marques Tuiasosopo?

Clemens: I don't try and second guess their decision. I don't try and figure out what they are thinking and why they are thinking it.

Q)What do you expect from yourself this year?

Clemens: I'm in my second year now. There's a lot of growth from year one to year two. I know what to expect.

Q)How much more comfortable is the team entering Year Two with this coaching staff?

Clemens: We know what to expect from Coach Mangini and the coaching staff. Last year, we were kind of seeing where we were going, but now our guys have a pretty good idea of where we are, where we want to go.

Q)How much more comfortable are you in the offense this year?

Clemens: This is my second year, there are things that I can get more in depth in now that I couldn't last year because I was learning the entire system as a whole.

Q)What was your reaction to Chad Pennington being named the starting quarterback early this off-season?

Clemens: When he (Coach Mangini) came out and announced Chad (Pennington) as the starter, it really didn't knock me off of my feet. Chad (Pennington) had a great year last year. Taking us to the playoffs, he deserves all of the respect that he gets from all of his teammates, all of his opponents and all of the coaches.
