We all know we need a QB,DT,and WR help but what about.....

The offensive line?...they really havent done all that great a job this year in my opinion...they certainly didnt breed any confidence into Jake but I think he was already nervous as a cat... but today though I thought Moore played fairly well there was several times when he didnt have time to do anything the D was up his butt about the whole game and thats further proven in the running game how many times did they tackle the run for loss...some of that is the ultra conservative play calling that we all hate so much but fox seems to love but some of it was just not maintaining your blocks long enough...I really think if we are gonna have a run game and give our QB a chance to scan the field we need maybe two more guys on that O-Line...since we arent gonna get a qb til later in the draft anyways and WR's there are more of than QB's...maybe we can address that and get some of those other things later in the draft or thru FA...of course no matter what we do we will have to make some trades just to free up some money.

Whats you guys take on this?...And I'll admit I'm no expert on what we can and cant do in the draft and in FA or how our hands are tied and can we get out of it or not so it may not be as esay to make these changes as I assume...???

I would love to see what Matt could offer given an entire camp to prepare as our #1.  I feel like WR should be our first area of concern because there is no reason Smitty should continuously get bracketed and nobody else steps up to make a play.  After that it's a toss up on which area we address next.

You gotta remember that injuries have played a huge part in the O-Line play.  We lost our 2 top backup o-lineman to FA and lost Gross about 5 weeks ago.  We probably could use another beast of an O-lineman but when they are completely healthy they can be pretty solid. 

I'm all but over Matt Moore at this point.  He has played okay at best but could have easily thrown 3 picks yesterday.  He hasn't proven to be very accurate and continually oversails recievers.  He is okay but I'm not willing to give him the starting job next year.  He may have a shot at it, but there better be some big competition for it.

AMEN...the bracketing and double coverage on 89 has been going on for weeks!!! part of the solution...and a HUGE part I may add...is to have another WR or two who actually can help to burn a D out of this coverage...love these guys...but the cold hard facts are that 87 (at 36 yrs old & a bad knee) 80 and 81 are not able to do this...88 is the closes thing the Panthers have to a #2 threat...but a TE/WR combo guy is not the answer needed over the long haul...they have to find a way to bring in another burner...a speed merchant who can stretch beyond the D's coverage...

We have Dexter Jackson in the wings, but will he step up after we gave him his second chance? 

Talbot...Moore was pretty accurate in week one given the amount of throws he was allowed to throw, but yesterday he had to battle the elements as well as his nerves, and constant pressure from the Pats in what was really his first big game.  I feel like he could be a promising QB, but he definitely needs time to develope some chemistry with the WRs.

Smith being our only passing threat and Peppers being our only pass rush threat has been going on for years. Thats why I feel moving to the 3-4 might help that part. We need to get a real second string reciever and returner and no more experiments! But drafting a qb is no.1.

I think Moore needs a little more time as well. True he hasn't wowed anyone but at least we've stopped the bleeding in terms of turnovers at the position. We all sat thru 11 weeks of Jake(with some you same guys supporting him blindly) and now after 2 weeks of Moore were writing the kid off...wow! Okay whatever! For one he needs to spread the ball around a little more, I think this would help him. He had a touch of Jake-itis yesterday trying to force it to Smitty a few times. Fox could help out in this area by using more 4 reciever sets. But then again I can't envision him doing anything to help this kid flourish in this offense...that afterall would prove his boy Jake wasn't the best option.
