I knew there would be these knee-jerk reactions. The sad thing is Moore played a solid game. It was a total team loss.
I just knew though some of you would come in here after 1 game and all of a sudden denounce him when he actually played a decent game.
He didn't play good bad enough to lose. But the fact remains, when he needed to make a clutch throw on that last drive he missed it.
It's a shame, because a solid performance has some believing this is proof that he stinks.
i thought moore was ok...nothing special...i mean you can't miss some of those throws at this level...you can't...they're the difference between winning and losing...and maybe i'm the only one but i've seen evidence of him missing easy throws each of the last 3 games...i don't care what the qb rating or whatever that garbage was you get an easy completion and can move the chains you need to stick it...
and you can't take some of those sacks either...i know he's mobile and all but when the floodgates open and you have time you need to throw the ball into the endzone stands
hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"
But every QB has games like that. The question is whether this is the norm or not. We can't have a QB missing plays like that that would seal the game. BUt at the same time, a QB will miss those throws from time to time. They all do. They just don't do it on a weekly basis.
So I can live with this 1 game in an overall impressive 4 game span, because he did lead what should have been the game winning scoring drive. He just couldn't kill the clock. So to me, his play didn't cost us the game. It's just a shame he had to be in that position. Regardless, he didn't make the throw at the most important time in the game.
This thread, and whole message forum at times, is stupid. Why anyone would thump their chests for being right about what they post on a silly fan message board is beyond me. Most reasonable fans think Matt Moore is better than Chad Henne, anyone who does not think that is an idiot. Most fans like what they've seen from Moore to the point where they'd like to see him as the backup next year or maybe the guy who starts until the GUY WE DRAFT is ready. For some reason to other fans those guys have already bought tickets to Matt Moore's hall of fame induction. The extremes are ridiculous. I'm willing to bet 95% of this site wold love to see Andrew Luck in a fins uniform next season but getting excited about 0 - 16 at 0 - 7 is dumb, especially if you've seen the Colts play this year. Us getting the #1 overall pick was a pipe dream and I'm shocked that all the extremely smart posters here really thought that was a realistic possiblity, that is laughable.
Now call me delusional, and I'm sure most will, but I saw 2 playoff teams battling it out there today and we just came up short. The gift TD (Moore fumble) and the failure to capitalize on the early INT's were the killers. Those 2 INT's should have been back breakers. We blew those oppurtunities big time. Back to what I said, did anyone watch the early game? That looked a lot more like a playoff team and a ****ty team facing off then our game did. It's a shame this team got off to such a slow start this year and obviously many people will have to pay for that. I just love how the Moore haters were in hibernation for 3 weeks and now they have pounced. Being right is soooo exhilerating.
tony did not let moore play when it was time to kill
that said barring a luck or barkley i would go into 2012 with him as my starter...no doubt
or is shows a lot about how our defense can shut down offenses that are sliding and struggling or coming off big monday night wins, and our offense can put up points on average or below average teams. we faced a team today that was above average, and we couldn't score touchdowns. thats really the bottom line.
