Carolina Panthers Sticking With Delhomme

October 29, 2009 By: Katchop Category: NFL

It’s remarkable, but true. The Carolina Panthers are planning to keep QB Jake Delhomme in the starting lineup.

Jake Delhome has become so easy to defend, that defenses are dictating where he can and can't throw the ball (katchop)

If you’re keeping count, Delhomme has 30 interceptions dating back to the beginning of last season and counting postseason play. Other QBs are close (Jay Cutler has 28, Brett Favre has 25) but Delhomme also has a paltry 20 TDs compared to 36 by Cutler and 34 by Favre over that same timespan. Even more astonishing is the fact that Delhomme achieved such prolific futility in significantly fewer pass attempts than anyone else. Delhomme checks in with 625 attempts to 825 by Cutler and 751 by Favre.

But Carolina coach John Fox will trot Delhomme out back under center this week against the team that ended their season, unceremoniously dumping the Panthers 33-13 in Charlotte. Delhomme tossed five picks that day.

It begs the question: When is it time to go another direction?
