Matt Moore: I would love to stay in Carolina

Got a chud yet TheRealDeal??

It’s hard to see the positives, but there’s definitely something to be said from taking a step back and watching. I got to see Jimmy play and watch how he handled different situations. I kind of played the game in my head from the sidelines just to stay in it. You have to try to stay as sharp as you can. That’s what I used to do when Jake was here and he was playing. That’s just what I had to do to stay in the game.

My injury was a torn labrum in my right shoulder. I’m actually doing really well. I’m nine weeks out of surgery, my mobility is good and I’m getting my strength back. The Panthers trainers are doing a great job of getting me back to where I need to be. When I initially suffered the injury, I knew something was wrong. The most pain came in the first four days after the surgery. That was tough, I had never had surgery before. After that it was just a lot of ice and I started to feel better. The past 5-6 weeks I’ve felt great.

For next season everything is kind of unknown right now. My contract is up and I’m dealing with that. I have to just kind of wait until the players and owners figure out the collective bargaining agreement. So I’m sitting tight and waiting to see what goes on with the league.

Obviously I would love to stay in Carolina. But nothing will be set in motion until some other things are sorted out. So I’m just hanging in there, getting my shoulder better and hoping we can work something out.

I'd at least take him to camp and see what the new staff can do with him.

It's crazy how many people don't understand this

well, if you take him to camp I don't see Clausen or Pike beating him. Would come down to Moore and whoever else they opt to bring in.

Patty says we likely won't resign him:

In past years, I’d say that could happen. But I think the page has turned in Carolina -- or at least I hope the page has turned in Carolina. The Panthers fully realize they didn’t have good quarterback play last season. They’re keeping Jimmy Clausen because he’s under contract and because some people in the organization still have hope he can develop into a decent quarterback. But Moore is coming off an injury and I think the Panthers will let him go into free agency. I’m pretty sure they will go out and try to find someone they see as a significant upgrade over Moore and someone who is a very viable alternative if Clausen doesn’t step up.

I agree.

The guy can't play.

Let him go, and find an improvement. No sense in keeping someone who's already met his ceiling-and it was pretty low.

How does his rehab get handled when his contract is up but no CBA in place? is he just out on the street or will the team still get to help him?

At least MM got smitty involved in the offense, and when he was in, there was the very real option that each pass play might not be a checkdown...

    • So we have already picked up Kelvin's fifth year option.  If I gaze into my crystal ball this is what I see happening. This upcoming season (year four) for Kelvin, will be a somewhat of a disappointment, same for Funchess. However, our offense will benefit from the varied and viable options we have provided Cam.  Panthers win Superbowl beating the Patriots and Olsen retires.  Panthers draft a tight end with pick 32.  Kelvin will swear in the offseason that he's taking things seriously as they will need him to be a leader with Olsen retiring., hint: he will because that oh so coveted second contract is looming and Kelvin is no spring chicken (already 26).  Year 5 comes. Kelvin has worked himself into shape and looks amazing. Basically everything we've always wanted from him. However, Funchess has a great season as well, remember Funchess is only (22) right now. He probably came out a year too early and it historically takes WRs a couple years to hit their stride.  Big time decision will come down to Gettleman and co. and I ultimately think we move on from Benjamin where he goes on to sign with the Los Angeles Rams. 
    • Competition makes the most of everyone. Gano had an off year and might be spurred on by the challenge. This guy seems like a good kid, but only one or two new kickers make it into the league each year... it's a hard gig to land.
