alright im too lazy and doped up on nyquil to give this thread the proper effort by digging up old articles but im just going to assume you guys were all reading them too and can kinda remember the tone.

for a while now the charlotte press has basically operated as the propaganda wing of the team. while im sure there's not a shadowy cabal full of nazi jews secretly running things, reporters are smart enough not to bite the hand that feeds and the team only allows the kind of stories they want to be leaked. Players that break this (see beason last year) are quickly made to repent.

I think it's fair to say that we can make some educated guesses about where the team is going to go judging by the articles that gantt, chandler et al write about the team.

2007

coming off a rather unimpressive year, the Panthers signed David Carr for reasons we shouldn't debate about in this thread. However, as Zod and Meat have mentioned many a time, reporters weren't even allowed to talk to David Carr.

If you'll remember, pretty much ever article from a local reporter followed the lines of jake getting ready to bounce back, how the competition would bring out the best in him, etc etc, and there was never really a qb position battle.

of course the performance david carr might validate that

2008

coming off a blown up shoulder and a young, promising rookie, I can't remember a single thing written that took matt moore seriously as competition. it was all about jake being better than ever, jake coming in ready to retake the wheels, jake being in the best shape of his life (the one quote in particular about jake having pecs now instead of just boobs from steve smith). the qb battle wasn't very legit. True, moore didn't shine, but he also started with the twos from day one.

2009

following his insane implosion vs. arizona, every article written talked about how the massive contract extensions a. gave the panthers cap space to wiggle with and b. was rewarding him for a great career. they all kinda assumed the arizona game was a fluke, and any questions about his future were shot down.

i vividly remember them struggling in the preseason and gantt, chandler et all just shrugging it off as rust, and as soon as the season started they'd get back on their feet.

whelp

2010

after the season ended this year, pro matt moore articles began to flood the internet from the usual suspects. it was all about how matt had made the transition, matt was ready to lead, jake was supportive of matt, then boom jake is in cleveland getting staph.

now.....?

i don't know about you guys, but maaaaaaan are people favoring clausen from what I've read.

now here's a gif and a yt

i'll give you a more proven theory as to who might start,if moore plays 2 1/2 qtrs during the third preseason game he's the starter going into week 1 if both he and clausen are splitting time it's up in the air

if post 2007 and the 2009 season proved one thing, it is Foxy ain't big on Moore. Fox starts and commits to guys he likes (not sure what guys do to become "Fox guys" but it ain't just about being a vet).

IMO, I think Fox ends up going w/ Clausen. He will like Clausen better in camp. Clausen will give the team the best chance to win.....

.......and then for one reason or another, Moore comes in for the 3rd season and mops up the mess making Fox look like a fool for the 3rd time in regards to his usage of Moore.

i have to wait until camp, and see how much work claussen gets with the first team offense before i will beleive he might start this season.

but it wouldnt surprize me one bit if claussen were to start week 1. this is going to be the most exciting camp i can remember.

Moore will start the year. How long he plays will depend of how he plays. But Fox is not going to start Clausen unless Moore blows up in the pre-season. Moore was QB rated as a top 10 quarterback while he was in there last year.

If we were talking about Andrew Mason here, I might agree with you.

But Gantt, Chandler, and the other guys have no clear indication who the starter is going to be. They can only report about which quarterbacks are performing well in camp, and who's playing with the ones.

That might give us an indication as to who will start, but it will be the reporter's info, and not their tone, that tips us off.

Barring injury Moore will start, and most likely finish the season.

If he shits the bed, he will still start until probably week 8-9.

i don't think thats the case at all.

moore might start but fox/hurney is downright giddy over clausen. moore was never really a favorite. he'll be on a short leash. no way he will be given the leniency that jake was last year. if matt struggles, he'll be gone.

it isn't like they have a lot invested in him.
