Matt Moore: 'The preseason ... is the preseason'

The Carolina Panthers -- specifically Matt Moore -- have caught some flak for their inability to post points during the preseason: they've averaged exactly 10 points a game, converted a not-so-whopping 15/51 third downs, amassed total offensive 776 yards and two whole touchdowns.

So, yeah, the flak is much deserved. Moore, the Panthers starting quarterback, would like to remind us all, though, that the preseason is, in fact, the preseason.

The preseason is just that, the preseason," Moore wrote at . "Everybody has been talking and writing things like it’s December, and it’s still August. Do we have things to improve on? Absolutely. But at this point we’re still 0-0 and looking forward to a good showing in Week 1."

Moore also referred to the preseason as "interesting" and noted that the point of the preseason is to "find your weaknesses and work on them."

The best part, though, is his note that "these sound like excuses and they kind of are, but they're also the facts."

All in all, it's a well-written blog entry discussing a very real point: the preseason doesn't matter. Just ask the Colts.

If Moore is correct in his assessment that the Panthers' offense can exceed the preseason expectations (and provided the defense can keep up their ridiculous pace), this is not a team that should be overlooked.

That might be optimistic, but hey, it's the preseason.
