If Jake plays better than Moore he should start. If the last two years of his play continue then he won't. It's not like Hurney or Fox is going to head down to Spartanburg saying, "Hey that Delhomme guy is garbage, I can't believe we haven't cut him yet."

Moore is a much better quarterback than Jake.

I kinda want to make a thread about this but I'll just say it here. What made jake great was his nerve. He had terrible form/footwork, couldn't make reads, couldn't diagnose a defense, and wasn't accurate. But he had a sack, and would make throws that no one expected him to.

After he lost that nerve, he didn't have anything to fall back on. It just spiraled out of control.

Moore has that nerve (look at his throw to Gary Barnidge against Minnesota) but he also has the footwork and intangibles to back it up.


I agree. I do hope we attempt to bring in a new QB though.

Why? Moore has proven he can run the offense (very well) and there's no clear upgrade, unless they make a trade for Mcnabb, and even then I'd rather have Matt.

Do you think Moore has that nerve naturally or is it a result of being around Jake?


Also, Moore seems to be the best option right now. There aren't too many left who think a new QB should be brought in by draft or FA. I'd have to agree with the sentiment.

No, not for Moore. For Delhomme :D

I already believe Moore has what it takes to be a starter. I just want someone to be a back-up because I don't believe Delhomme has what it takes to even be in the NFL anymore.

If you look at the literature on him, he had it in college too.

Thanks for the heads up; I gather most of my information from this board. Good or bad thing? Probably bad.

Nah it's good. Jake only had nerve. Matt has the nerve and the talent/physical skills to back it up.

I love this Forum :)

Maybe, just maybe, no one will offer Peppers what he wants (multi-millions) and we will have the best offer on the table for him when the time comes to make his decision. Or do you think we have completely screwed the pooch and he would take less money to go else where?


Peppers wont come back to Charlotte, nor did he screw the pooch.... I beleive ,like many, he wants a change of scenery. I have not problem with that and it should have been evident when he didnt sign that long terrm deal after the '07 season. There is nothing wrong with wanting a change of scenery, it happens to many. I just have an issue on how the whole thing was handled by everyone involved over the past 3 years.

From said article:

"However, a deal must be brokered by Peppers' agent, not Carolina, because the player hasn't signed the $16.68 million franchise tender the team gave him last month."

I think this is what you call in the telecommunications business as the common point of failure.
