Only thing I have against Jake Delhomme

The only thing I have against Jake as my starting qb is that he is completely average. Its not a terrible thing in that he usually won't cost you a game and if not given enough pass attempts he can go through a game without 6 pics lol.  But he also won't take over a game like the greats like Peyton Manning, Tom Brady and Ben the Burger can. If you're down by 21 points hes not gonna turn into superman and come back.  He has a really good winning percentage but also has played on some strongs teams with good running games and strong defenses. Lets face it hes only had two really good seasons. I wouldn't put Jake in the same group as Peyton, Tom, Donovan, Carson or Burgerboy but I would say hes top 20, probably at 19. Hes a game manager  who does well despite what he has physically much like Chad Pennington but he isn't quite as acurrate or aware as Penny is. Don't get me wrong I'd much rather have Jake over someone like Daunte Culpepper or JP Losman anyday. He has moments where I am just really really glad hes on my team but then he has a game where you wonder how he ever became a pro qb. I think I am at the point where if the Panthers are down by more than 21 in the 4th I want to see Matty get some playing time and possibly challenge for the starting job later this season or take over next year. Its not that I don't like Jake anymore, its just I feel like hes peaked and done as much for the Panthers as he can. He is what he is, a game manager who needs a strong running game and a good O-line to win.Just look at his last two playoff games where they needed him to step up. Against Seattle in the 06 NFC Championship game he had 1 touch and 3 pics, and well we all know what when down in the desert. I think its time we started leasing time to Matty in blowouts, whether they are losses or wins. That way we can already have a qb with some playing time under his belt and still fairly young who can lead this team for the next decade or so if everythings works out. Leave some comments, good or bad and Peace out Panther fans
