Panthers bench Clausen, going back to Moore

Maybe we can start calling him John “Flip Flop” Fox. The Panthers head coach has reinstated Matt Moore as his starting quarterback. Moore was ineffective as the starter in Week 1. He was equally ineffective in Week 2 before being knocked out of the game.

Second-round rookie Jimmy Clausen started in Weeks 3, 4 and 5. Clausen somehow managed to be even less effective than Moore. In fact, Fox benched Clausen in favor of Moore late in the team’s Week 5 loss against the Bears when it became apparent that the Panthers would need to throw to get back in the game.

You following all this? Basically, we’re examining a team that has no options under center. Maybe GM Marty Hurney still has Vinny Testaverde’s number.

Moore and Clausen are both coming off their best week of the season, but that’s only because Carolina just had its bye. Fox said on Monday that Moore would get the nod this week against the 49ers (perhaps the only team in football with more quarterback drama than the Panthers).

Of the decision, Fox said, “We have struggled on offense since the beginning of the season, and sometimes it helps to step back and watch and Matt has had a chance to do that.” The Panthers currently have the league’s worst-rated passing attack.
