Per Yasinskas: Quarterback Competition?

From the NFC South Blog:

As we look back on the first round of preseason games and think about what’s happened so far in camps, here are five random thoughts on the NFC South.

My initial take on the Carolina quarterbacks was that Matt Moore looked average the other night and Jimmy Clausen looked pretty good. The vibe I’m getting out of Carolina right now is the Panthers think Clausen looked even better than I thought. This might be a little more competitive a situation than originally thought.

Yas is an idiot. Yas is the guy who went on and on and on and on.....telling everyone we didn't want to see Matt Moore replace Jake no matter how bad it was.

All these guys have there own bias when they write. There ain't no QB competition in Carolina. At least not for the starting job heading into the season.

I'd like to know where he's getting his vibes.

That's what she said!

I'll be shocked if Clausen starts.. the kid should sit at least a year, if not 2-3..

While I wouldn't doubt that the FO thought Clausen looked really good, because he did, I don't think there is any QB controversy brewing unless Moore starts throwing picks all over the place.

How could anyone think Moore looked bad? They must just be looking at the stats.

If the Panthers are hyping Clausen even more than most folks thought or might be reasonable at this point, it reinforces the whole idea that they plan to make Clausen the quarterback of the future no matter what Moore does. If Richardson is going down the cheap route and they know 2 things:

1. that they are going to let Moore go at the end of this year anyway

2. Fox is going to be gone too so this is a rebuilding year

Then it makes sense to play Clausen no matter who is the better guy. And you would put him in there no matter who gives you the best chance to win.

If Clausen gets work with the 1s this week you have to consider that they are looking down the road and have already decided who their quarterback will be next year and are grooming him now despite what happens with Moore.
