Panthers look to finish season on a high note

The Panthers are hoping to finish the season on a 3 game winning streak and with a .500 record as they prepare to finish out this injury plagued campaign with a home game against the NFC South champion New Orleans Saints.

The Panthers have caught fire recently and have played like the team that many thought they would be all season long, but unfortunately it is a case of too little, too late for this squad as they have apparently found their groove under the leadership of 3rd year quarterback Matt Moore, who has started the last 5 games of the season after Jake Delhomme went down with a broken finger in Week 12 against the Jets1.

Moore’s play should at least guarantee that there will be an open quarterback competition in training camp next season, if it doesn’t cement his name in the starting lineup and put Delhomme at either #2 on the depth chart or on another roster.

But, before anyone can worry about next year, there is still one more game to be played. The Panthers hope to close the year with a win to avoid a losing season and to have some momentum to build on for next year. Moore could also use the boost in confidence that would come with a strong outing, as he could use the extra time on the field to help him contend for the starting position next season.

Or, hopefully Moore can prove that once and for all he deserves to be the starter, and he can show that the Panthers knew what they were doing when they signed him 3 years ago as the heir apparent to Delhomme’s position.

That is if Fox will ever admit that it’s time for a change.
