Will any QBs be "Delhomming" this year?

11 posts in this topic

Something that I think is rather interesting is that a generation of QBs is getting further into their 30s and some could be slipping a bit, declining from their peak.  There's guys like let's say Manning, Brady, and Gannon who are the types that can stay rocking in their late 30s but they are rarer to come by.  

 

Here's my list:

 

Matt Schaub (33) has no doubt slipped into this state.  He's lost whatever he had.  McGloin and/or Carr will be playing soon.  

 

Eli Manning (33) definitely showed some slippage last season; I can see it continuing if they can't get a decent run game going

 

Josh McNown (35) will be benched by week 3/4

 

Tony Romo (34) sure, he has Dez and T-Will and Murray coming back but that OL is young and inexperienced, he's a toss up.  I can see him putting up an efficient year but his TD numbers may be a little down and that team as a whole is bad.  

 

 

The aging question marks/prospects:

 

Jay Cutler (31) -- Unbelievable supporting cast but he really knows how to sh*t the bed

 

Philip Rivers (32) -- I think he keeps doing well.  Has a great supporting cast

 

Big Ben (32) 

 

Matt Ryan (29)

 

 

There's going to be a lot of QB hungry teams in a few years methinks.

I've been waiting for Brady to slip for ten years.

According to fan math Eli will be hitting his best year in about two

Wow watching highlights of the last Giants game, Eli looks like pure dog poo. They showed the stat where he's had 11 drives and only 14 points. The Giants are going to have a terrible season ala 2009 Panthers season, but I don't even think they have a backup that can win a few games like we did. So it'll probably be worse.

Romo will be benched only when Jerry Jones stops making decisions with his ego.

On that day, you will also see pigs fly and Hell freeze over.

So in a weird way, he may mirror Delhomme late in his career the most.  Start him until complete implosion.

    • Jesus. A 3-4 OLB at #8? Two major off-field character concerns in the 2nd round? Another slow WR in the 3rd? Never. Gonna. Happen. There's at least a decent chance that his top three picks won't even be on our draft board. Gettleman has said numerous times in the past that guys who aren't scheme fits for us aren't on our draft board. There goes McKinley. Given our past with guys like Carruth and Hardy, there's zero chance that Mixon is on our board. Given Robinson's off-field issues involving a stolen gun, I'd say there's a better than average chance that he's not on our board either. You'd be hard pressed to come up with a more unrealistic mock draft for the Panthers if you set out to try to do just that.
    • I can't say that any one of those guys ends up a Panther.  I think if Cam is there at 40 (which I doubt), then we would likely pull the trigger.
    • The need by some Americans here and across the country to demonize only select individuals for rioting (ahem, minorities) speaks directly to the fact that we've really made little actual progress since witnessing unrest in our streets dating back to the civil rights era. Ask yourself truthfully, what has really changed when the first thing some white people can think of even today in 2017 when they see a black person "rioting" is, "why are these black people so angry?"? But then white people rioting over a sporting event or a pumpkin festival is viewed as harmless tomfoolery.  If you as not only an American but also a basic human being fail to see the difference in the dynamic at play here as it pertains to the response to these instances, you are part of the problem whether you realize it or not.
