A week after Panthers coach John Fox said he would reassess his quarterback situation, the Panthers are turning back to Matt Moore as the starter, and sending Jimmy Clausen back to the bench.
“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,” Fox said in a statement released by the team.
Moore started the first two games of the season before giving way to Clausen. Now the Panthers are 0-5, and Fox has decided to turn back to Moore.
No matter who’s under center, the Panthers’ passing game has been atrocious. Clausen has completed 47.3 percent of his passes with one touchdown and three interceptions, and a passer rating of 52.2. Moore has completed 42.4 percent of his passes with two touchdowns and six interceptions, with a passer rating of 33.3.
