Mr. T. taking wait-and-see approach with QB

Here is a statement from Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum regarding how he feels about QB Kellen Clemens -

"Like a lot of young players, there are going to be some ups and downs," said Tannenbaum. "There are reasons to be encouraged - some of the two-minute drives that he led. You look at the Miami game, obviously they didn't have the year that they hoped, but they are still a good defense and he went down there and played well. The two-minute drive against Washington, I thought he did a nice job with. Playing at Baltimore, some of the plays he made in the fourth quarter in their home opener against a good defense. There are some things he's going to do even better.

"Kellen's a great worker, and I expect him to work hard in the off­season. Over the next few months of our off­season program, the OTA's, minicamp and training camp, we'll see where he is."

The only problem with evaluating his off-season work is that there is no live pass rush, and a big problem he displayed was dealing with pressure.
