Panthers QB Matt Moore insisted he's not worried about his hold on the No. 1 job. While he's taking the snaps with the first team now, coach John Fox signaled the position is up for grabs. Moore has only eight career NFL starts -- but the other three QBs on the roster have none.
"Right now he's the No. 1 quarterback," Fox said of Moore. "Those guys will decide that, not me. I felt real comfortable with Matt at the end of last season. I thought he showed improvement in both seasons he's had an opportunity to play. We'll see where that takes us."
Fox said Jimmy Clausen was "swimming" as he learned the offense on Friday, even though he had a head start by working in the same pro-style system at Notre Dame under Fox's friend Charlie Weis. The four-time Pro Bowl pick Smith said it was too early to have an impression of Clausen.
