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.

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.

Question for the Clausen bandwagoneers:

What happens when Clausen looks like the rookie he is, throws some picks, takes some sacks and finishes a game with a 40% completion rate and the Panthers lose... what's the next step? Will we start seeing Tony Pike threads?

^^^ i think im just tired of 3+ years of crappy QB play. Never fails how our Qb's (jake in his last days here) are so bad in protecting the ball and getting points on the board. Moore had 1 good TD throw....but good lord there were times when he had time to throw and still couldnt hit the open WR. And im still wondering WTF was he thinking when he floated that ball to the WR in the endzone.......
