Matt Moore...

This hasn't really been discussed much from what I can tell so I thought I'd throw it out there since with the Lockout (to my understanding free agency/trading cannot be done-I may be wrong, not 100%). But let's assume Smith, Gettis, LaFell along with Shockey are our starters outside and we bring back DeAngelo.

With that group of players around him and what seems to be a more competent coaching staff as well as an offense that isn't as predictable as a Jr. High's would it be a safe assumption to say he could look pretty good? I'm having a hard time deciding whether or not the tail end (4-1) of 2009 was a fluke...Our offense seemed so much more open than this past season, or maybe I'm going crazy. Could be both.

But with a legit star in Smith forcing defenses to still shift coverage even though he's older, an above average versatile TE who can work the middle as well as spilt out out to the slot. Two big receivers Gettis (6'3 with track speed), and LaFell (6'2 a more balanced receiver with big play ability) to go with what's already a good rushing game, I feel reason to be cautiously optimistic if he ends up being the starter Week 1, (whenever that may be).

After the debacle last year it is difficult to be that optimistic without a good reason. Once the CBA is settled and training camp begins, we can get a look at this new offense. Then I might mister some excitement. Until then who knows if Moore will even be on the team come June.

Matt moore can, and has gotten it done.

He had zero help at the beginning of last season.

A none existant run game hurt the most. He and steve smith not having training camp together, also hurt.

No one even knows if Matt Moore will be healthy enough to play

I would be willing to give him a chance.

On top of a poor running game, he was also a victim of shotty play calling.

Refer to the Giants game on the goal in three different instances.

The poor guy was just trying to make something happen, can't really fault him for that.

Like dpanther said, his injury was very serious. And is gonna take a longtime to rehab from that.

My guess is that they will bring Moore back and he'll be in the mix for the starting QB spot again with this new coaching staff.

I wouldn't hate Moore being brought back, but I can't stand this notion that he's somehow still in line to be our long-term starter. At best he's a stop-gap if/when Clausen struggles. If we draft Newton/Gabbert I seriously doubt he's re-signed.

A stop gap if clausen struggles? He's better than clausen. Its not even close.

    • I also want to take this space of internet to announce that I'm still so fuging happy we got Monk. 
    • Not really a fan of MCW. Not even sure if he is better than Sessions tbh. I don't think Teague will want to be a backup much less take the MLE, but who knows- might not be a market for him. Livingston would be incredible but don't think we have the money and why would he leave Golden State unless they don't offer him anything.  Here's someone that's not a free agent, but I would not mind us taking a shot on: Dante Exum. With the Jazz trading up to get Donovan Mitchell Exum looks to be ousted as the PG of the future there. He's had his struggles but he's extremely talented and has never really had a great mentor like Kemba would be.  I'd give them Sessions (lol), Jeremy Lamb plus a couple second rounders. Would not give up any of our core: Batum, MKG, Cody, Kemba, Dwight, etc. Wonder if they would bite on that? It's crazy that second rounders really do become valuable. If we had an extra second we could have had Mason + Bacon likely.  Part of me wonders whether or not we will try to have Monk run some backup PG. That would be a mistake IMO. He needs to be running off screens all day.
    • I wrote to both Tillis and Burr - the thing that pisses me off the most about this is that the savings that this bill creates in the budget are not used for deficit reduction - they are nothing but a hand out to the wealthiest among us and corporations in the guise of creating a more robust economy.  These heartless lying  bastards make me sick.
