Contrary to perceptions around the league, there is no open quarterback competition in Carolina. Barring injury or "a mental breakdown of Jake Delhomme proportions", Matt Moore will open the season as the starter. The more relevant question is who will be Moore's primary backup and defacto starter if Moore gets injured. Hunter Cantwell, an undrafted free agent who was on the scout team last year, has impressed coaches and appears to be No. 2 on the depth chart at present. Reed believes, however, that Jimmy Clausen will emerge to take that spot by opening day.
