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.

For the most part I think separation was fine...the big problem was the Defensive Linemen in Moores face the entire night! I don't think I have watched a preseason game with that many blitz packages set up! It seemed like they blitz on every down...poor Matt didn't really have time to survey the field; which makes Jimmy's outting even more impressive! Ops no one open down field, pocket closing in...lets shovel pass it!!! Loved it!

he actually would have been 5/9. The two passes negated by the penalties weren't counted as pass attempts, so he would have had 2 more completions, but 2 more attempts.
