"This organization see's Moore as a #2 WR"

Recommended Posts

Dude was a top 10 NFL WR with Kyle Allen throwing him the ball. If the Panthers' organization feels he's "only" a #2 then it seems as if the Panthers' organization agrees with the Huddle's opinion that the only viable "#1 WRs" are mythological beasts the who consumes his opponents with fireballs from his eyes and bolts of lightning from his arse.

I mean, he was great but it’s not a far-fetched take to think that right now he is borderline 1/2 receiver. His intangibles are ridiculous especially his center of gravity, balance and YAC/tackle breaking ability. But he definitely has work to do as a route runner if he wants to be considered a top tier wideout. I’d say he’s comfortably in the 2nd tier. Whether that’s a #1 or #2 I don’t know and I don’t think it matters. He can still become a top tier guy if he masters the route running aspect of it.

 

edit: I’ll add, to clarify, that I’m 100% comfortable with Moore as our best WR. If we still decide to draft another guy like Jeudy or something and have an elite pair, then great. But if not I don’t see any pressing need to add a WR to be a “#1.” A bigger possession guy for third downs and red zone, yes. But no need to spend big (money or draft pick) on someone to be the “#1.”

a few of us have quietly maintained this thought about Moore. he's fantastic but his skill set is suited perfectly for a #2 or imo lined up in the slot. Juedy and Samuel on the outside with Moore in the slot and CMC at HB with Cam Newton under center, that's the best offense in the league. maybe the best Panthers offense of all time tbqh

being the #2 wide receiver in a good offense is not about being "worse" than the #1, it's about where you line up on the field and the kind of routes you're running. lining up Moore across from a #1 WR who is a little taller but equally dynamic doesn't make him inferior, it makes them both super good

After smitty called him out during the season Moore’s production (and possibly effort) was noticeably improved. Maybe smitty isn’t trying to be a douche, maybe he’s just trying to motivate him.

dj moore went for 1,200  yards with the worst starting qb in the league (sans maybe trubisky), at the age of 22. he is as old as a good portion of the prospects coming out of the draft this year and already has a 1,000 yard receiving season to his name in the NFL with horrible qb play. regarding him not scoring, our offense didnt do much scoring in general the last few weeks, but in that case, find a big body redzone threat and a solid te (or hope thomas develops). jumping to a conclusion on him being #1 when he's still extremely young, and the only qb play he's had throughout his career is the corpse of cam newton and a backup is simply premature. the eagles won a sb without a #1 wr, all you need is a well rounded unit.

 

drafting jerry jeudy #7 at one of the only positions which we are solid (or well, atleast have SOMETHING at) would be a colossal mistake. keep in mind, curtis samuel had an ungodly amount of deep tds over or underthrown to him. he got missed so many damn times down the field due to qb play. we should atleast see how this upcoming season with cam treats them, and if dj regresses, or samuel's stats don't go up, then we should look to address the position. who's to say that samuel can't be our #2? maybe take a wr later, at earliest in the 2nd with mims (since he was a redzone threat in college, something we definitely need on this offense), but even then there are so many holes on this team that could be addressed, and in a wr class this deep, i'd take one later.  the only three players that should even be in consideration for us at 7 are thomas, brown and simmons.

what!!?? not sure I follow what you are saying!! Moore fought with a lot of poor throws and did well!! U can have a great receiver but need a QB to get it to u!.. Moore didn't have that!! So if Cam has is as good as he supposed to be then Moore will double that this year!

I'd like to see steve smith play with a busted cam newton or kyle allen.

dj moore can be a #1.  is he? hard to say, because fuging kyle allen was throwing him the ball.

Smith made Delhomme look like a pro Bowl QB. Moore isn't Smith but Brady is going to make him look good. I also think he fits a WCO/RPO offense better than a Coryell imo.

no doubt smitty was a beast, but Delhomme was a probowl qb in the early/mid 2000s.  Arguably his best season statistically was when smitty was injured even, lol. 

and again, Kyle Allen wishes he was Jake Delhomme of the early 2000s.  Or at least, I do...

Regardless if he is a 1 or a 2, we need another WR and play Samuel in the slot. Now that our TE situation is less scary, a three-pronged threat at WR would be a nice addition.

Smh so much hate for a kid who was thrust into a horrible situation. Delhomme has the arguably the best WR duo of that time in Smith and Moose. Jakes best season was a result of Moose ripping apart the league. Unfortunately we didn't have enough juice to push for a SB that year. Just like when Smith got the triple Crown. Always the bridesmaid never the bride in Carolina.
