The Great Jake Debate continues. This time we have an article written by someone who is clearly a Jake hater. So for those who hate, have a read and relish in how bitter this guy is. For those who love, read it and defend him!
Usually I provide some analysis of the article, but it's just another team preview. Pretty run of the mill other than all the Jake trashing. I'll spare you my (hate) opinion, because I've said my piece many times on the issue.
Jaxon has been kind enough to highlight the passage i was referring to:
Update by Jaxon: Tater must be referring to this passage:
Jake Delhomme looks like one of the Brothers Followill, talks like Forrest Gump, and throws like one of the Jonas Brothers. And yet he has signed a contract to do his job, which requires, at least, a non-Jonas performance with his arm, for eight digits of income over the next six years of his life. He’s never thrown fewer than 12 interceptions in a full season in his career, and never committed fewer than 15 combined turnovers when playing in at least 13 games. And his playoff implosion against the Cardinals was downright Favreian.
Jaxon: "That's pretty damn insulting but I admit I know not what 'Brothers Followill" refers to."
Also, I'd like to highlight this passage, which sounds to much like the grumblings of a disgruntled Panther fan to be considered in any way non-biased writing:
The last NFL QB older than 30 to start and win a Super Bowl was Brad Johnson in 2002; Peyton Manning was 30 when he won Super Bowl XLI.
Is Delhomme really the horse a team should be betting on to buck that trend?
And with their ground game and defense still both reminiscent of threshers, they have as much chance to survive the playoffs as any NFC team.
Of course, this assumes that Jake Delhomme will only throw one interception a game.
And heck.. i'll toss in an infuriating image for no reason at all.
