John Fox says Matt Moore is Panthers starting QB

Panthers coach John Fox says that as of right now –Matt Moore is the Panthers starting QB:

Jimmy Clausen’s arrival is part of Carolina’s new quarterback era that started when seven-year starter Jake Delhomme was abruptly cut in March after a miserable 18-interception season. Matt Moore, who went 4-1 when Delhomme was sidelined with a broken finger at the end of last season, was immediately named the starter but then watched the Panthers draft not only Clausen, but also former Cincinnati QB Tony Pike in the sixth round. “I don’t know if there’s any more room in the quarterback room,” Moore joked, “but good guys, excited to have them here and ready to work with them.” Moore insisted he’s not worried about his hold on the No. 1 job and while he’s taking the snaps with the first team now, coach John Fox signaled the position is up for grabs. “Right now he’s the No. 1 quarterback,” Fox said of Moore. “Those guys will decide that, not me. I felt real comfortable with Matt at the end of last season. I thought he showed improvement in both seasons he’s had an opportunity to play. We’ll see where that takes us.”
