I would be stunned if anyone in the NFL would give a 2nd round pick for Matt Moore.
The Entire NFC West
those are at least 8 teams that could be in the market for a QB, and a number of them are probably desperate at finding a competent QB to be their ticket to contendership.
Lets compare the prospect of Matt Moore to another team to any first round college prospect. Okay, if the panthers put the first round tender on him, than the cost of acquiring him will only be equal to what you'd have to give up for a rookie that has proven nothing at the pro level, and as far as age is concerned, he'll only have just turned 26 by the time the season starts. Moore never played terrible in a game this last season, and that's with a very weak passing offense. Who did he have that was really a threat besides Smith? A geriatric 2nd option, not one established receiving TE, and Dwayne Jarrett, who only put out a decent effort in the last game of the entire season after Smith broke his arm.
Moore is more of an asset than anybody realizes. If the Panthers FO lets someone else steal him right out of their hands, they deserve all the lack of success that is waiting for them in 2010, and meanwhile, all the loyal fans will have to suffer for yet another failed seasonal campaign where Hunter Cantwell starts week 5 and completes 20% of his passes after Jake Delhomme throws 12 interceptions by the time a defensive end breathes on him and ruptures his trachea, ending his season, and then we'll have the same stupid people on here rationalizing our FO's neglect by bringing up all the good moves they made from 8 years ago that haven't been relevant for a long time.
please, FO, lets not fug up the one good opportunity we've been given at having good QB play for years to come
