Kellen Moore has a lot on his plate going into this year’s preseason. He must show the Detroit Lions why they should keep the third quarterback spot on the roster and why he should be that guy to fill it.

While doing that, Moore will have some competition for the third quarterback spot. He will go up against an experienced Thaddeus Lewis.

Those three reasons would make anyone stressed about competing for the third quarterback spot, but the sense around Detroit is that Moore is as confident as ever about winning the job.

Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press expressed that optimism in his recent column about Moore’s arm strength and overall game showing improvement this off-season.

Those improvements are being shown in training camp though; I am more so looking forward to see if those improvements show starting tonight against the New York Jets.

I am confident those improvements he has made will be showcased tonight and the rest of the preseason. It sounds like he has taken all the necessary steps to make a bit of a leap from last year’s preseason to this year’s preseason.

    He’s a great kid, hope that he makes the grade! At any rate, I would love to see him back on the Blue as a QB coach and Pete’s heir apparent.

    He has his work cut out for him. Hill looked sharp against the Jets, and Lewis didn’t get much of a look. If Moore is going to make the squad for a second year, he has to show the kind of improvement the Lions coaches are betting he can make. Everybody knows he has the mental part, but he has to improve his physical tools enough to be able to do the job in the NFC North.
