Panthers | Matt Moore not being ruled out for Week 2

Mon, 13 Sep 2010 10:04:50 -0700

Carolina Panthers head coach John Fox said QB Matt Moore (concussion) was feeling a lot better after suffering a concussion in Week 1 and has not been ruled out for Week 2, reports Darin Gantt, of the Charlotte Observer. Fox said Moore will start if he is fully healthy.

Again, per the NFL policy on concussions, Moore needs to evaluated and cleared by team doctors as well as independent docs before he can practice, let alone play next week.

Too soon to rush him back and its time to see what Jimmys got

It's not "time" for anything after one game. Much less starting a rookie at QB.

if you had to guess..place a percentage of our chances of a W with clausen or moore starting if both are healthy.

I personally think Clausen gives us a better chance to win, even without him taking a meaningful snap in regular season. He already seems more polished and more comfortable in the pocket. Jimmy is not your average rookie, he understands the playbook, been slightly exposed to the new speed and has good game footage to study.

Of all games to give him a chance this would be the one, its still early and Moore could use the rest this week.

He should be at this point. But, the leash should've gotten a lot shorter. Irregardless, I don't see Moore getting cleared for next week.

I still believe Matt Moore can fix his mistakes and play well for us but I hope Fox doesn't rush him through this concussion. If he does play than Davidson needs to limit him next week against Tampa bay. We don't have 2 elite backs on our team so that our new starting Qb can get knocked around early. Part of me even thinks if Jimmy did get the nod to start, Davidson might have him throw alot as well.

1 really bad game in 9 starts.....it happens. Moore has done too much here for Clausen to come in if he is healthy.

You DON'T bench your starter after one game....plain and simple.

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
