Sad but true statement from NFL.com about the QB situation

64 posts in this topic

Just stocking up for ME sakes. They don't wanna be caught without a good QB in the injury situation any more.

or maybe they were looking for QB depth because we've all known how good our QBs behind Delhomme have been especially during 2007, 2009, and the last quarter of the 2006 season and the gargantuan slide top prospect Jimmy Clausen took provided a great opportunity for them to make an effort to improve the quality of the position.

Thats exactly what it was, before the draft I knew we would take a quarterback later in the draft just for depth purposes but when Clausen fell to them he was too good to pass up. Clausen in a year or so time will supplant Moore as the starter and face of the franchise for years to come.

Steve Smith pretty much said the same thing about Clausen yesterday. He called Clausen's draft a catch 22 because Moore earned the starting job.

I hope Matt goes wild next year and throws for 350 yards a game with dozens of TDs and little to no Interceptions. He's not getting a fair shake by Fox and Hurney.

I agree, if the FO didn't have any faith in Moore than we would have traded up into the first round to draft a QB. But that didn't happen and Clauson fell to us.

They did try to trade up in the second round, they just couldn't make it happen.

And knowing Hurney next years first was thrown out there.

moore won't put up those type of numbers in our offense, how do you figure he's not getting a fair shake?he is number 1 on the depth chart you know. moore supporters need to accept that if he doesn't keep the starting job it will be because clausen,pike,or cantwell beat him out not because of fox or hurney

Just like Jake beat him for #1 last year right?

Moore's not getting a fair shake at his job and it's sooo apparent.

That is such utter bullsh*t... so the Panthers were supposed to go into the season with Moore and Cantwell and no other QB, even though these two highly rated rookies fell to them at way below what they were rated in the draft, and this "proves" the Panthers have no faith in Moore???

Who wrote that?

that's not really true. the panthers pursued jimmy but couldn't get the deal done. they didn't just pick him because he happened to fall to them. they WANTED HIM, and made an unsuccessful attempt to get him. the fact that he then fell to 48th was just dumb luck.

but never the less, they did want him because they know moore is't a franchise qb. if he was, then one of the 32 teams would have drafted him. he just happens to be an undrafted FA who happened to have more talent than the entire NFL expected. he makes a great #2 who pretty much has one season to prove himself before the team makes jimmy the guy (if it doesn't happen sooner)

It's Irrelevant, much like last year, Moore will be week 1 starter, and Fox will ride his season on how Moore does, and for the record I hope Moore impresses, even though I love Clausen, I love Moore first cause he's our starter and I want him to succeed.

GO PANTHERS!

i think jake had a better resume to show than moore has, and yes if you go by training camp& preseason dehlomme and mckown played better. add the fact that the panthers had more time and money invested in dehlomme didn't help him either

Let's just be happy that Jake isn't playing, at least someone new will start our season for us.
