    I agree. Jake and now Moore don't get any protection from the O-line. It's like open season on... View More

    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.

    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.

    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.

    #1 Panther Fan here! i agree. Moore is no better than Delhomme..i'm sure hoping Clausen is the answer..i'm not going to say we need a Qb just yet..please Save the Panthers Clausen..We need ya! and Defense Step up a little.

    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 think Pike would be good too...but the with o-line like it is they couldn't win no matter who they had at QB right now...at least Clausen made some good decisions today and didn't make a bunch of forced passes like Delhomme and Moore...now if we can just teach the O-line to block and the running backs to hold on to the ball

    I SAW CLAUSEN PLAY TODAY. HIS FIRST HALF WAS BETTER FORGOTTEN BUT HIS SECOND HALF LOOKED TO ME LIKE HE WILL IMPROVE AND BE A PRETTY GOOD NFL QUARTERBACK. I SAW QUITE A FEW GOOD POINTS THE SECOND HALF. HE TRULY HAS A GUN FOR AN ARM. I THINK HE WILL BE JUST FINE FOR NEXT YEAR IF THEY DON'T MESS HIM UP. FOX HAS GOT TO GO, JUST GOT TO GO.

    Clausen had a great drive and passed well at times. They only have one receiver in Smith. Long season. The OL is not cutting it.

    Maybe they should line up Deangelo in the wildcat and run that.

    Clausen can be our franchise QB. He just needs more snaps. Our D needs to step up and blitz more on 3rd down. We play awesome D the first 2 downs...but have a bend and then break mentality on 3rd down and long. As for receivers, outside of Smitty we have a couple of promising rookies in Lafelle and Gettis. This year we need to air the ball out some and at least try to make defenses respect Clausen. Then pound the ball.
