Never understood the Matt Moore love. His best game that most remember him for was a loss to the Patriots. Average back-up QB with no threat to take the next step. Glad he made bank, but whatevs.

I havent seen any love for MM around here other than the one poster who many seemed to think was MM himself.

People seem to have relatively kind words for him NOW...but when he was here, only a select few were willing to say anything remotely positive about him. The mere mention of his name around here a year or two ago resulted in typical insults.

He wasn't a great QB...but he came in when JDH was down and played well against top teams. Granted he didn't show that the following season...but I never understood the disdain for the guy. He was a backup...he did what he was supposed to do...then failed to shine in what everyone considered the lame duck year of Fox. (again as mentioned by another poster...he was a backup thrust into a starter position)

Personally, I wish him the best of luck. 4 million a year to sit on the bench is a sweet deal. Some may think that every NFL player dreams of Superbowl rings and such....but maybe, just maybe...some folks out there are happy to accept their role and make HUGE bank while not risking injury. I'd take 4 million a year to do nothing over 10 million a year to be the guy with all the responsibility and a head on the chopping block each week with ease.

Honestly, I'm surprised he stayed after watching Hard Knocks last year. He was pretty set on becoming starter last year, and was visibility upset when they picked up Garrard. But I can't blame him for getting 4 million a year at backup Qb...

Thanks for changing. I think the way see Matt sees it is he has a job and he doesn't have to move. He's got a family and a nice spot in south florida.
