Moore could be QB class of 2007
By Pat Yasinskas
Great stat from the Elias Sports Bureau on Carolina quarterback Matt Moore.
Entering Sunday night’s game against Minnesota, Moore had thrown for only one touchdown pass in his last 72 attempts, which dated back to December 2007. Moore had three touchdown passes without an interception against the Vikings on Sunday.
Injured starter Jake Delhomme had only one game where he threw at least three touchdowns without an interception in his last 52 regular-season starts, a span that dates back to November 2005.
By the way, Moore came out of Oregon State as an undrafted player in 2007. JaMarcus Russell, the first pick in that draft, never has had a game with three touchdowns and zero interceptions. Neither have Kevin Kolb, John Beck or Drew Stanton, who were second-round picks in that draft.
Brady Quinn, the No. 22 overall pick in that draft, has had two career games where he’s thrown for three touchdowns without an interception.
