Hurney kind of put us in an unusual position. Since Moore has already signed his Tender. What are we going to do?

I am for signing him before the Season Starts.

Yeah, It makes you wonder if we had a crystal ball. And has seen Clausen was going to fall into our laps. We could have given Moore a decent contract and picked Clausen. We would have been set at QB.

Impossible to know at this point. If he lights it up, we suddenly have the cap space to give him a franchise standard QB contract. No point it getting rid of him if he plays well, as Clausen is still a huge unknown.

If he plays poorly, let him walk.

Averagely, tag him and see if you can trade him.

Zero point in locking him up long term now. Yes we could save a few $$$, but we could also cost ourselves $$. Better to be paying someone who deserves it that one who does not.

They will release Moore when this season is over.. Thats not saying thats what I want, but that is what I think will happen...

I think Moore will probably be offered a moderate/possibly long-term extension after the season is over provided he plays reasonably well. Barring a Super Bowl or Moore seriously growing into an indispensable franchise quarterback, I also see him on the trading block the minute Clausen is deemed ready to go, however many years down the line that may be.

I hope we keep Moore, and I think Clausen will be a great bargaining chip for the Panthers when we offer him a contract. We will offer Moore less than he is worth for sure. He will sit on his tender this year, as will most of the other tendered players.

Certainly no new contract before the season. I don't see him earning a franchise qb contract unless he starts the pro bowl.

If he leads this team to the playoffs, the team will probably make him an offer. At that point, he'll have to decide between staying with the team that gave him the chance, and the one he is already familier with...or take his chances somewhere else.

Sign him after the season. I'm all for letting the kid play like his career depends on it.

We gave Delhomme a huge Vote-of-confidence contract; how'd that work out for us?

one vote for waiting until the season is played before we decide.

(didn't see the most logical choice up there so i figured i would write it in)

If you remember we didn't know Clausen would fall that much. In fact we tried to move up in the second round to get him when he fell out of the first. We weren't able to do it and then he kept falling to the point we picked him up without having to move at all.

It will come down to how much Moore wants at the end of the season and whether he plays well all year and remains the starter. Unless Richardson plans to spend 70 million at the quarterback position, I could easily see them saying that Clausen is signed long-term and we have young guys who need playing experience and keeping veterans stops the maturation process. In other words using the same rationale next year to move Moore off the team to go with a cheaper younger guy.

Rayz, I was going to say that, but you beat me to it.

P-55, I think Moore is as good as gone, unless he's Clarke Kent and pulls out his cape and---for lack of a better term---leotards on game days.:D From what I have seen of the two, Clausen is just better. Yes, I know that Clausen was playing in college, and Moore was starting on Sundays last year, but it's not like Moore has any appreciable amount of experience as an NFL starter, so, for me, I almost have to look back to his college days because it is the next logical thing to do. Moore is really going to have to win some games with his arm---his talent---if he is going to be the incumbent starter next season (assuming he is the starter this season).

Now, assuming Moore is the starter this season, I am going to look into my crystal ball. What I see after this season is a situation somewhat similar to the Chargers' a few years back, the big difference being that Moore is probably no Brees, but Clausen will probably be in the league of Rivers.

[Getting off on a tangent, even to this day, in my mind it is arguable as to whether Brees is soooo much better than Rivers as a QB (like many would assume without really a second thought), but I still question this assumption. In any event Rivers is probably a top 5 QB in the league.]

After a season of Moore (and hopefully, not less---pun and double entendre intended), the FO and many fans will know that JC is our true savior, and it is he who will lead the Panthers to glory.

When Clausen fell to us in the second, was the second that Moore's future in Carolina was not in Carolina.

At the moment Clausen was falling upon us, like manna from heaven, Moore was falling from grace.

I wouldn't wait too long to sign Moore to a longer contract, like waiting until the end of the season, unless he's not playing all that good. If he picks up where he left off last season the longer they wait the more expensive he'll get.

If Moore picks up where he left off then the Panthers should sign him for a longer period of time and keep both Moore and Clausen, at least for the next couple of years. With Clausen being in the middle of the 2nd round draft choice, they could afford to keep them both. No need to rush into something foolish by trading away a good QB. If Moore was to break his leg again they'd be happy they have Clausen sitting behind him. If they traded Moore and he went on to do really good while Clausen struggled, I don't even want to think about it.
