did i say that? did i say that they have no desire to improve things? if i didn't then that wasn't accurate of anything except in showing your limited understanding of people's opinions.

[quote name='Jpjr']To Moore's credit, I've never seen a franchise backup QB have such religious followers on an online forum. I am surprised he wasn't mentioned as one of the guys that will cost the team $60-90 million to lock up.[/QUOTE]
If Cam wasn't picked number 1 in the draft, I am not sure Moore wouldn't be favored as the starter this year. He still seems ahead of Clausen as far as I can see. With so many high draft picks though, he could find himself outside looking in. If we can't find a veteran who will be content mentoring Newton and starting for a year at most (maybe not at all) then there is still a chance we keep him on the roster as a backup with starting potential. After all how many times have we had a quarterback make it through the entire year in the past 5 years. Seems with our luck we need at least 2 potential starters at quarterback, maybe three.

I personally believe it would be best for the Panthers if we could keep Moore around because I feel like there will be points this year where we will need him. That being said, I think Moore himself would be best off elsewhere because he would have some starting opportunities.

I am by no means implying that Clausen is better than Moore right now. I have no idea at this point. Who knows how Moore will be coming off a big rehab and Clausen had his own operation. For whatever reason though I don't get the feeling that both will end up on the roster. Unlike some others, however, I think the player with more value will be the one that goes and not the one that stays.

Chris Weinke had a pretty big fan base on this board several years ago.

I dont know if it will be Edwards but I do know they are thinking about bringing in a tier one wr though it makes me wonder why we drafted a guy unless they plan to use him on the practice squad

There's an interesting point raised here. Under Henning, Delhomme missed three games in four seasons, and they came late in the season of his last year on a thumb injury. Then in the next four seasons, Delhomme managed to start 16 games once. In the other three years we had a revolving door of QBs, with just about all the changes due to injury. At the same time, we had a massively improved offensive line from that which Henning enjoyed. At least that's my opinion anyway.

So what do you think, is this just a case of Delhomme getting old or was there something to Davidson's system that put the QB at more risk?

I think there was something in Davidsons playbook that put our entire offense at risk. For instance take the play located 2 plays under the coffee ring and next to the play in yellow crayon.

I dunno. Maybe trying to run a hard play action on 3rd and 12 with the entire defense blitzing and taking a QB that may have 2 seconds to make a decision and giving him .3 seconds and the ability to only look to one receiver before he is killed.
