This is Moore’s team

Apparently, there’s really not a QB controversy in Carolina, as much as the media wants us to believe there is one (imagine that). They’re just going to have to deal with the fact that low-key Matt Moore is the starter instead of media-darling Jimmy Clausen at the present time.

An article by Jim Corbett in USA today focused on the Panthers and starting quarterback Matt Moore. Here are just a few of the quotes from the column.

Emphasis mine on all quotes.

Corbett:

One thing is clear: There’s no quarterback controversy in Carolina despite a lingering national perception that the job is open since the Panthers drafted Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen 48th overall.

Moore:

When Jimmy was drafted, I got some calls from a bunch of people … Then, Coach Fox called and said,”Don’t read into this. You’re the guy. You’ve proved to us you could play last year.”

Fox:

Matt’s our starting quarterback, and you can’t control all the stuff on the outside … Our team knows he’s our quarterback. He’s got the temperament and all the physical skills. What hurt us last year was the inability in the passing game.

Smitty:

Matt’s earned everything he’s got … He took a tough road. It’s finally worked out for him. This is his team.

Dear Media:

If you happen to be reading this, please take note of the quotes I have listed above, especially the one from Foxy. It’s straight from the horse’s mouth: the Panthers don’t have a QB controversy.

Please, let it go.

Sincerely,

The Panther Playbook

    NO! Clausen baby! Clausen!

    If Clausen keeps playing the way he played against the Ravens, it will be his team in 2011, I’m almost certain. But not yet…

    I agree. He’s not quite ready. Let him learn. Oh, and get him some more playmakers at WR too.

    Yes, please get some playmakers at WR. I think they hit the jackpot with LaFell though – that kid is going to be special. And, if Armanti Edwards can make the transition from QB to WR, look out – he’s a hell of an athlete.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
