He is.....they are calling him an "intern".

No you have to see it. He was not calling Troy out by any means. It was simply honest and never "blamed" Troy for his injuries.

Answered the question without homer bias while STILL implying Troy is the best when healthy.

I'm almost certain I heard Clark make very similar statements last year... In fact, i think he even said something similar in what you say here about not rating himself (although, IIRC, he said he couldn't rate himself compared to others).

Consider after the Titans games (first game Troy was out) there was not a single 200 yd passer until Troy returned. Someone said once that the defense tends to play more "disciplined" when Troy is not in the game. That may have been a factor in why they did so well without him.

I agree that the defense played very well without Troy as they were able to play 'their' positions vs. trying to adjust to what Troy was doing with his ad-libbing on plays. But, Troys return also was right when Ike went down and we had a rookie at CB.

Good point but I think they played better when they moved Clark to SS and replaced Mundy with Will Allen. Clark became a star with that lineup. He was all over the field and the defense did play much better. Although you also have to account for the fact that Harrison was getting healthier.

The secondary benefit is that it may be good for his health.
