deserves his own thread if Jimmy Clausen does!

Yes, I know his stats only show 3/7 for 32 yds but if not for

Gross's propensity to hold at the most inopportune times, he would have been 5/7 for 68 yards. The first holding negated a 17 yard pass which would have put the Panthers at the Ravens 16. The second hold negated a 19 yard pass on a 3rd and 15 to the Ravens 18. In both instances, the Panthers would have had a first down in the red zone. At worst, they still would have had an opportunity for a FG.

Clausen is getting a lot of attention today but it looks to me like Moore has pretty much picked up were he left off last year.

I thought he was 4/7?

Either way, what surprised me last night is that Clausen looked more poised. It looked to recognize the blitz better and either check out of the call or hit his hot read. Moore just looked shell shocked when they came after him. Now, maybe he just wasn't expecting it as most defenses play very vanilla in the preseason and you usually don't see blitzing like that in the preseason. Clausen probably benefited from seeing Moore face sell out blitzes and came in prepared to face the same.

Moore looks to be the same guy we have gotten to know....

Plus, unlike Clausen he has a tad more gunslinger in him imo....which is big when you have a man named Steve Smith.

Clausen's getting the attention because he's the golden boy that fell in the draft.

In the eyes of the media, last night was more about Clausen's first preseason game and the introduction of the Ravens new offense. Clausen's poise was great.

Moore is Moore. Not many qbs do well when the Ravens blitz almost every play. Especially in preseason when Fox and company aren't game planning around them.

Keep in mind too that Clausen was facing a bunch of Raven's 2nd stringers. I'd be interested to see if he could hang with starters.

I thought the Ravens had most of their starting D in for the entire first half? Could be wrong but I know the starting secondary was still playing in the 4th quarter due to all the injuries they had.

they are thin in the secondary b/c of injury. Not sure the guys playing w/ the first unit are who they plan to have come regular season.

Moore will be fine.. You can't have that many penalties and succeed. Its Panthers football.. Dropped passes on first down, leading to 3 and 10+ constantly. Which brings up the worry at the #2.

THAT is what is truly concerning. There's a good chunk of that Ravens secondary that we saw last night running with the 1s and 2s who probably won't even make the regular season roster, yet our young WRs still couldn't get any separation.

    • Destiny really fuged me in terms of me playing other games. I have a week off this summer and maybe I will be able to dive back in, but I'd really like to finish Breath of the Wild too.  Witcher is so much fun, but iirc I'm kind of at a point where all my quests are a much higher level than me (like 30s and I'm a 15 or something). I probably need to back track and pick up a bunch of side quests that are manageable to boost my level some.    I like the Witcher's lore better than Skyrim, but I still think Skyrim is a more appealing game to me just because you can casually pick it up and start dominating. Witcher is more rewarding but takes more time. 
    • No way would I consider CAP a lock to make the roster. In fact, I think he may be on the outside looking in at the moment. But, the stats bear out that he was roughly equal to Stew in effectiveness last year. Stew averaged 3.78ypc and a TD once every 24 carries. CAP averaged 4ypc and a TD once every 18 carries. Hell, it may be generous saying that Stew was equal to CAP in effectiveness last year. I think a lot of Panthers fans suffer from nostalgia when looking at Stew. I still think he's a decent RB, but to hear some Panthers fans talk you'd think that the guy was a future HOFer. I feel like most of us (myself and the front office and coaching staff included) have perpetually overvalued Jonathan Stewart.
