Jake has crumbled completely mentally. He can no longer put plays behind him, it is pretty obvious since these turnovers are coming in huge bunches.
Playing him isn't fair to the rest of the team. They are doing their jobs, and you can't let one player sabotage everyone elses chances to win like this. Leadership starts with performance, that is never going to be debatable. Nobody gets playing time by how much of a leader they are.
If Jake can't protect the ball then you find someone who can, pretty simple concept.
This is more than a turnover problem, it is an epidemic that only gets worse. Jake's poor play makes everyone else that much worse because nobody respects him, so they sell out to stop the run and they blitz without fear.
It really isn't difficult to stop a running team if they have no QB, just put 9 or 10 in the box. The Eagles didn't do anything the Cardinals didn't.
If Fox doesn't take Delhomme out for any of the reasons above, he should at least save Delhomme the embarrassment he is bringing upon himself.
John Fox is in love with the journeyman QB. It worked one time and he thinks he can do it forever.
He just fails to see that he has yet to put back to back seasons together. Hey, lets give a guy who had 15 TDs and 15 turnovers an extension and big guarantees, sounds good.
I think that Panther fans were all weary of this season. We are aware of the pathetic seasons following good ones.
I don't know about you guys, but the last season didn't save John Fox really at all, the season afterword was going to be as much about saving his job as the last.
Being a coach that can only win when his team is a surprise and go to hell when they are pegged to at least compete for the division is something I don't enjoy watching.
I can't blame anyone but Jake for his pathetic performances. There was a bit of pressure at the beginning, but I didn't see it as unmanageable. I didn't see that sack as one where he had no chance to protect the ball. Dammit he threw a two interceptions in two throws.
Not only does Jake destroy the trust of his teammates, but in one game he destroyed the trust of the fans. Who the hell is going to go to a game where one player is bound to destruct on such a massive level?
ive been saying this was going to happen on NFL.com forums all summer and ppl have been saying i was stupid and usually im happy when im right but not now. I really hope Delhomme turns it around and can at least get the team 6 or 7 wins but somehow i doubt thatll happen especially if Fox decides to keep starting Delhomme despite horrid performances like his last two. Im almost glad i dont get to watch Panther games since i moved to Tennessee now that i know how badly Delhomme did and seeing how Fox is blaming the rest of the team on the website and nfl.com and even giving Jake the start against the Falcons because Fox is just asking for the team to self destruct and i really dont wanna watch that happen.
the new contract to delhomme was supposed to bring him more confidence but i guess the plan backfired in quite spectacular.
TBH i dont think jake will play this craptacular the whole season although he is always free to screw up even more against my saints.
What i came here to ask you lot, how good is your backup guy cuz i barely know a thing about him?
Saints 2014 draft wish list:
- No pass rusher till the fourth round (or preferably at all)
- Corner or Wideout in the first
- No reaching
- No Kelvin Benjamin
our backups are as bad or worse than delhomme because god forbid the joke have to feel any pressure. Luckily McCown got injured, because he is just terrible. Feeley is garbage and Moore has someone upside, but he seemingly hasnt gotten any better since arriving here and that upside is probably Delhomme when he was "good"
