Jake Delhomme to Start

Reed reporter (on the homepage) that Jake's been announced the starter for the Arizona game.

I can only hope that he's got Delhomme on a short leash.

Re: Jake Delhomme to Start

It's apparent to me now that John Fox wants out of Carolina.  No other explanation for this idiotic (and ridiculously early) announcement of his man love for Jake.

Re: Jake Delhomme to Start

Reeder reported that Fox says DelHomme is not on a short leash.

That said, what does it say about the GM and HC when there are no better alternatives for a QB that would be benched on 31 other teams?

If Moore is that bad, why is he the back-up?

That would be one explanation. Player evaluation and selction ineptitude could be another.

Re: Jake Delhomme to Start

I don't care how long or short the leash is. I would rather Jake play better and not need a leash. Jake is obviously not playing up to what he has in the past, but I think he still has the ability to play well. Though I have to say if he has another bad game I would imagine Fox will sit him. I would say a big part of why he is playing this week is because the game is not at home. I think it would have been different if this game was a home game what with the booing by the Panthers fans and all...

Re: Jake Delhomme to Start

We would all rather Jake play better. I would like to point out that he IS struggling and probably needs a week or two on the bench to reflect. This has worked with struggling players in the past and for other teams. However, the fact that this option is not available speaks volumes.

Re: Jake Delhomme to Start

Well this decision has sealed the fate of Gohomme, Fox, and Hurney.  Enjoy all three's last season here in Carolina. Fox & Hurney dug their own graves and bet their jobs on a washed up QB with nothing left.  There is no logical or rational thought behind this decision to continue to start Gohomme.  After another turnover fest on Sunday at the hands of Gohomme old man Richardson should start interviewing GMs & Head Coaches immediately.  There is no excuse for continuing to do the same thing over and over again that has failed and continue to play a QB that loses games.  21 TURNOVERS IN HIS LAST 7 GAMES.......WTF FOX??? COME ON MAN!
