To Jake or not to Jake, that is the question! Weigh in Panther Fans


What a day, what a week!  While the Panthers have been resiging their core players, and adding some new pieces through free agent signings and today's trade, you might ask, "What's still needed to make the 2011 Panthers successful?"  I can see some needs still at DT, CB, and depth on the OLine. You might have some other ideas.

But in my opinion, there is one gaping hole left, and that is another QB.  I'll say it up front:  After last season, I'm not comfortable with Jimmy Clausen and Tony Pike as the only QBs on the Panther roster except for SUPERCAM.  I think a veteran QB would be really helpful to Cam, because:

1. If Cam doesn't look ready by the end of the preseason, it would be nice to have another viable option to lead the team and score points

2. Jimmy Clausen has not yet proved he can be an effective QB in this league.

3. One injury to Cam then could potentially put our offense/team's success in great jeopardy in 2011.

 

All that to say this, in my opinion, Jake Delhomme might be a good option for us to consider.  Not for loyalty reasons, though I would like him to retire as a Panther.  Rather, because he would be a perfect mentor for Cam, teaching him how to prepare, be a professional, and deal with the media.  The other reason is, I'm not convinced the Marc Bulgers and Derek Andersons of the world would give us much more than Jake would, in terms of on the field performance.  They have had as many "bad Jake" kind of years as Jake has the past few years.

 

That's just my opinion.  What do you think?
