    It really doesn't matter who plays. The Panther nation has a lame duck coach this year & it shows on the field in many ways. I feel sorry for the fans, they deserve better than this!

    I am with you there, mike, they can give Clausen a shot as they should, but I believe the best quarterback they have resides in the #3 spot right now.

    Why is no one talking about Pike? Claussen didn't show much leadership at ND but Pike won at Cincinnati, where there was no football tradition.

    Gonna have to disagree with this. Panthers' o-line is in the top third of the league. Brett Favre, Aaron Rodgers, Romo, and Eli were all sacked more than the Delhomme/Moore combo last year. None of those teams had trouble moving the football through the air.

    Granted those teams threw the ball a lot more than the Panthers, and so are bound to get sacked more, but it's not as if we were getting sacked way more than anybody else.

    The reason our pass protection doesn't look as good as, say, New England's, or Indy's, or the Saints, is that the defenses playing those teams actually have to respect the QB's ability to complete a pass. If you rush too many guys, or blitz too often against Brady, or Brees, or Manning, eventually they start picking you apart. Neither Delhomme or Moore have displayed that ability the last few years. And that's why other teams start teeing off on our o-line, because they know our QB's can't find the soft spot in the pressure and complete a pass. So they start rushing 5 and 6 guys, and double covering Steve Smith, basically DARING our QB's the throw the ball to Rosario, or Jarret, or whoever, in single coverage. And more often than not, our QB's don't make the right read or the right throw.

    Sometimes an o-line is the weak point, and not the QB, and deserves the blame. But sometimes it's the other way around. This would be one of those times.

    I agree. Jake and now Moore don't get any protection from the O-line. It's like open season on the Panthers QB's for some reason. I think they should try Claussen and give him some real time at QB AND do something, anything to get the O-line going.

    I think a five-game winning season is optimistic. I was never impressed with Moore. He played at the end of last season against some teams who had already qualified for the playoffs, so they pulled their starters part-way through the game. Moore didn't get a real test last season. He just doesn't have what it takes. I hope Claussen is a quick learner.

    Should have taken Michael Vick when they had the chance. Matt Moore's passes didn't look very strong and he threw into double and triple coverage quite a few times. He looked a lot like Delhomme. I think Clausen would be more of the same. Armanti Edwards is definitely a better option. NY was busting through that O-line like it wasn't there. Lots of concussions to be had it you stand in the pocket with that line...I'm just saying

    but thats pat white, we are talking about a different player. somewhere along the lines the quarterbacks have to be mobile these days cauz these young linemen are getting faster and faster..they aint waitn to sit there and wrestle with the o-line, they going around and getn to the qb by all means necessary..and yes the qb has to have some kind of skills also and being able to maneuver when there is a breakdown up front...sit in the pocket if you wanna, and its gonna be sack after sack

    Just because a QB dominates in college doesn't mean it's gonna translate to the NFL. Pat White was a monster at West Virginia. He got to the NFL and Pittsburgh hit him so hard he went and signed with the Kansas City Royals. That line could get Edwards killed.
