reporters tone will give us hint about which qb the team is going to go with

I won't be surprised if Clausen starts because of Fox's comments about not liking Moore's approach to the game. He's never drafted a QB high before so I believe that could be sign he doesn't have confidence in the position. As supportive as he was of Jake he hasn't shown any support of Moore what-so-ever. I would figure that he would have talked about what his conversation was with him during the draft. He was never shy about his love of Jake, he hasn't shown any support for Moore.

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.
he was the second highest rated during his span as a starter behind pass happy Philip rivers, that's saying alot

Second highest rating doesnt say alot, any descent quarterback should be able to get good numbers based off of how defenses line up and play against us. But I am very excited to see Moore playing a whole season and I highly doubt Fox gets risky and puts Clausen in. Now if Fox is extended next year will be a whole different ball game and I doubt Moore will be tendered.
that game ruled

The good news is: if the Panthers are able to flip Moore for a draft pick (second rounder maybe...? depend on how well Moore plays obviously) in the future, we have a solid young back-up in Pike or Cantwell.
As a fan I'm very excited about promising talent competing for the position for the first time in a while maybe even in Panthers' history. I just hope that the desicion on who is the better quaterback is clear, because I definitely don't want a McNabb-Kolb situation in Carolina. Which brings me to my final point: At some point this year Moore will have a pretty bad game, setting of a swarm of old posts and threads saying: "I told you Clausen was better.... remember that touchdown pass he had to Jarrett in the preseason...he makes our team better" or "I told you Clausen would be the quaterback by Week eight" or even worse "Matt Moore= Jake Delhomme 2.0.... great guy, can't throw the ball at all"
I dont even want to come close to this place after said game happens.

Given the way we have gone cheap this year, who thinks we go for cheap potential over the expensive proven commodity at quarterback next year???

No CBA and Moore walks. If Moore sucks or does a so so job he walks. Jimmy looks like the second coming and Moore walks.

But Moore is the guy, as he should be. If we stink as a team, it is possible that a switch is made later in the season to see what some of the others can do, if we're out of PO contention. But until that happens, or Moore goes down hurt, Moore is the guy!
