49ers make Matt Moore look good

Very surprising this week was Matt Moore's effort against the 49ers leading the Panthers to a 23-20 victory.  It was Moore's first game in three weeks and his numbers were quite impressive (28/41, 308 yds, 2 TDs, 1 Int).  He started the first 2 games and was horrible then Jimmy Clausen took over and wasn't much better.  I definitely didn't see this coming, I thought that this would have been a disastrous game for the Panthers.  But Moore performed quite admirably and spread the ball around to 6 different receivers.  Should also be noted that San Fran's pass coverage is not too bad as well (12th ranked in NFL).

I got to think that this was partly due to a poor performance by the San Fran secondary as much as Moore's passing ability.  Therefore some of the blame must lie with poor preparation or some pathetic coaching or both.
