But the bottom line is he didn't play well enough to keep his job.
Lame duck Fox does not want a donut on his watch. (Yes, I do think Jerry Jones is crazy enough to hire him)
Moore is fresh and plays well when seasons are shot.
So I can certainly see why he would make the change regardless of my personal bias.
BUT, for all you Clausen fans, you are almost guaranteed to see him again this year.
If the team can get a few wins under it's belt, Clausen will likely come back once the team is mathmematically out of playoff contention.
I agree with others that the FO will want to evaluate his skills under less stressful circumstances before a new head coach arrives.
Of course, if Moore doesn't do well he is likely to come back sooner.
The only way you realistically do not see Clausen again this year is if Moore lights it up and turns this team into a playoff contender. Not likely but much stranger things have happened in the NFL before. Obviously it would be fine by me.
