    while I do agree that Moore is one of the the better backups in the league, I think the writer wants to have it both ways. Its just as fair to criticize Moore for his bad play with the Panthers as it is to use his good play to give him props.
    Also his comment on Moore holding off Tannehill is incorrect. We did not instill Tannehill right away as our starter. We signed Garrard and had Moore as possible starters, in fact in early going Garrard was number one on the depth chart.
    It wasn't the case of Sherman coming in and from day one everything was tailored to Tannehill. If Moore is your backup u have a solid guy but very few teams would make a move to have him as their starter.

    Moore is capable in stretches. With the offensive line being a issue, capable will be needed.

    That statement is true, but I think NFL management of the QB position is at an all-time low because of the constant desperation of teams to find talent in youth at the position. Most of these young QB's are not only bad, some of them end up turning in downright horrible performances over their career. Matt Moore won't be an NFL week one starter because he isn't twenty three, drafted in the first round, and sellable to both fans and the owner as the answer, not because he couldn't provide a performance as good or better than what almost any young QB's will do in their first year, and likely in subsequent years is over.

    Teams always drafted QB's in the first round, but now teams draft QB's in the first round to find their starting QB for the upcoming season.
