Like I said earlier I'm not in the same train of thought about the whole game tape thing. Teams now know he's the definite starter, so they have all year to plan for him. I really don't anticipate him having some kind of breakdown. How many times a year do you see playoff teams destroy young QBs on a bad team? It happens a lot. Hasn't happened to Moore.

True. Moore also has all year to improve and to practice with his team.

You mean the same Bucs defense that shut down the Saints in the 2nd half of their second game? Toward the end of the season the Bucs defense was finally starting to gel.

Just because they are getting ready to give Clausen a contract doesn't mean much to me. If MM has an MVP type season, do really think they will just let him go and use him as trade bait? Give up a proven QB on an unknown? Not to compare the two situations, but where is Cassel and where is Brady?


Same can be said for Brees and Rivers, but the opposite happened. When it comes down to it, it's just a matter of who the men in suits like.

Both hope and skepticism are valid in discussing Moore, but it shouldn't be a mystery at this point. Moore should have been the starter by at least game six last year.At the latest! Fox wasted so much by keeping Jake in. I have no doubt we would have made the playoffs had Moore taken over sooner and we would have a much clearer evaluation of Moore's ability. It all snowballs from there,every decision made from then on seals Fox's fate. If Moore fails miserably,then Fox is justified for keeping Jake in so long and for drafting 2 Qb's. If Moore continues to shine,and to all the Moore skeptics he has indeed played great ball make no mistake about it,then it shows how poor of a coach Fox is and how much time and resources he has wasted.

Apologies for a Matt Moore thread, but I just have to get this off my chest...

I keep hearing all of these criticisms and most of them I feel are weak at best.

He's only played 8 games in the NFL. He's unproven.

This is a valid point. He's far from a seasoned vet. But he's 6-2 in those games with a 96.6 rating. What more could you ask of this guy?

The entire team was playing well during that 2009 hot steak. It's easy to play QB when your defense and run game are hot.


It's also easy to run the ball and play good defense when your QB isn't turning the ball over 3 times a game.

He's only started when the Panthers were out of the playoffs. It's easy to play well when you have nothing to lose.

This is true, but 5 of the teams he's played against were in playoff contention. They had plenty to lose. Usually these hot teams fighting for the playoffs in December steamroll past the powderpuffs who have nothing to play for. That didn't really happen with Moore, he went 3-2 with a rating of 101.76.


Now that he's played enough NFL teams will have plenty of tape to watch. His job will be much harder, remember Derek Anderson?


Anderson was always a hot/cold QB, it was the media that hyped him up. He folded against quality competition and padded his stats against poor competition.

I also have a hard time believing that a big reason he's been so successful is because he's taken so few snaps. NFL defenses victimize QBs that are put in Moore's position all year long.

I think if he was as poor a QB as Derek Anderson he would have shown it when he was thrust into the starting lineup as an undrafted rookie.

I keep hearing about Alex Smith/Kevin Kolb and how they're ready to take the next step.

Matt Moore goes 4-1 putting up pro-bowl numbers against teams such as the Vikings, Giants, and New England. We get comments like "they don't have a quarterback".

I remember Tony Romo's debut in 2006 with ESPN tripping over themselves to give this guy a BJ after he put up gaudy QB ratings against powder puff teams like Tampa Bay and Washington. If Matt Moore was a Cowboy, wow.

Moore's future is uncertain but he hasn't given any reason for anybody to doubt him. I'm just tired of hearing analysts downplay him because they don't know his name.

If/when he lights it up this year we'll here them say "Where'd this guy come from?" when really he was right in front of them the whole time.


Nice post.....the kid will do just fine.
