Panthers Looking at Options at Replacing Delhomme at QB


The Panthers have to face facts when it comes to replacing QB Jake Delhomme. The QB simply is not the same player he was early last season when he and the team were working their way towards being the NFC South Champs.

Hopes of winning the South this year are gone with the Saints running away with the division, and now John Fox has to face facts in replacing Delhomme in the starting lineup. The Charlotte Observer today reports that the decision to replace Delhomme finally seems to be near:

Admitting his team’s confidence in its passing game is in dire need of a boost, Carolina Panthers coach John Fox said Monday he’s considering replacing Jake Delhomme as the team’s starting quarterback. Less than a month after expressing his support of Delhomme’s status as the starter with a “capital Y” for yes, Fox is on the verge of changing that to a billboard-sized N-O. “The reality is we’re not operating very well there, and I don’t know if status quo is necessarily the answer or not,” said Fox. “We definitely need to do whatever it takes to get better. If that entails a quarterback change, that’s what it’ll entail.”

Delhomme has thrown four TD’s this year but 13 interceptions, which has killed the team. Bottom line, it’s time to see what someone other than Delhomme can do when given the chance under center.

    They can do nothing. Keep daydreaming that Matt Moore’s pencil legs is some Brady-like hidden gem, and be disappointed over him. No one wants Feeley because he’s know. Everyone wants to see what Moore can do because of hope. Well get over it.

    wow that last guy’s comment was pretty unintelligable. Im pretty sure anyone can do a better job at this point tho

    We’ve already given Moore a try, Delhomme is absolutely the best QB on the team. I say that Jake has the rest of the year to prove himself. Panthers have no other option. Remember life with Rodney Peete? That’s what you’re looking at if you kick Jake to the curb. Then he’ll probably go somewhere else and pull a Kurt Warner and lead a team to the Super Bowl. Then we’ll all be kicking ourselves for hatin’ on Jake.
