You're right. I got it backwards. I was thinking of Nate Burlesons deal. The Seahawks signed Burleson from Minnesota and put a poison pill in his contract as retaliation.

"The contract given to Burleson had two vengeful poison pill clauses in response to the contract offered to Hutchinson. Firstly, it stipulated that if Burleson were to play five or more games in the state of Minnesota during any single season over the life of the contract, the entire $49 million would become guaranteed"

lol good job seattle

that'll show minnesota

1. If Moore had started the season in place of Picks Magee we'd have made the playoffs.

2. "Wait till teams have film on him" hasn't flown since his second start this season.

3. A team has a young QB who has won consistently against teams fighting for a playoff spot/higher seed and has never flat out lost a game on his own at this point. He has also racked up some pretty eye-popping stats during his limited chances. We NEED a QB. How many trade threads pop up on the huddle? (Hint: search for Kolb, Kevin)

4. We need to poo or get off the pot in regards to the QB position. Moore either is or isn't the answer. I think Fiz said it first, but we need to either move forward with Moore or get rid of him and upgrade. No reason to draft someone to groom and sit him behind a 25 year old promising QB who has limited opportunities at this point.

5. The longer we wait to offer a contract, the more he's going to cost us.

6. Delhomme is done. Get over it.

1. Quite possible
2. Matt Ryan looked really good his rookie year. Less so last year. Coordinators are lazy creatures sometimes. They wait for someone else to stumble on your weakness then they copy it.
3. Lets see how he handles the pressure of being " The Starter" first.
4. If Moore is our guy, we don't have to wait till the end of season to start contract talks.
5. Yes but if he is the man it's worth it to give him a bigger contract than a smaller contract that he will say he's outplayed later.
6. Yes.

Thats what I keep telling people too. This news shouldnt come as a surprise at all. The panthers will do everything in their power to make sure jake is the starter and saving face with the fans at the same time. They'll claim its a "competition" and Jake won fair and sqaure. I bet they may even give the receivers money under the table to drop some passes from Moore.
