Fox/Delhomme Supports-- I want to hear from you.

22 posts in this topic

I am just interested to hear what you have to say. Becuase I dont see how anyone on God's green Earth, could think that A) Jake Delhomme gives us the "best chance to win" and/or B) John Fox is capable of turning this team around and leading us to WIN a SB. His offense sucks, his team sucks, time to can him.

What say you?

AT this point just about everyone's going to agree with you. Most of us are reeling at how poorly this offseason went, with Delhomme's big contract and no 1st round pick. I just don't see an easy opening to improve right now.

Fox should bench Delhomme for now (He has no problem doing that to Weinke & Peete before they left) & give Moore a chance. That is the best way to look at before we decide to pick a QB in the Draft to become a starter..

If Fox wants any chance to keep his job - he needs to bench Jake now to at least show us he was wrong. This season is lost, I like Fox but don't want to see Jake anymore.

I have not been a Fox fan for years. He had too many inherent problems...playing not to lose, lack of adjustments. Now add to that his complete lack of understanding of the importance of the QB position and ability to evaluate QB talent.

I will always be a supporter of Jake, but he's done. I still think that the biggest problem is the O-Line, they can't block for poo.

I have been on Fox's side this whole year, but he needs to go. He's a great coach, but we need a change. Davidson needs to go as well.

I just don't know anymore.

It's funny that it took some people THIS long to understand Delhomme was done. I guess that is what blind loyalty and slurping gets for you. Most of the Fox/Delhomme supports have jumped ship, which irritates me cuz they waited until our playoffs hopes were pretty much over to leave. If you slurpers really had faith in John Fox/Delhomme, you would wait until the season was over.

Anybody could have told you Delhomme was done LAST year. Again, he looked ball in training camp, the live scrimmage, and the preseason. What did you expect? Fox had two prime opportunities to bench Jake, after the Eagles game and during the by week.

I'll throw some names out there...MaineMan, Savior Faire, MrT, Delhommey, RT81/Jake Delhomme 17...I know I'm missing some more, but get your @rses in here and defend your boys...

Despite our 4-7 record, I still support Jake & Fox. Why? B/c they have done so much for us panthers since 2003. My theories about Jake are his surgically operated arm has become weak since the bye week from last year, or he is still haunted by last years playoff game. Fox is a stubborn coach, everyone should know that. He has also built a very strong relationship with Delhomme. When he started as head coach of Carolina he must not have liked Rodney Peete very much b/c he was pulled out of the 1st game back in 2003 easily with Delhomme coming in. Delhomme has played like the same Rodney Peete in at least 3 of our 11 games (philly, 1st atlanta game & yesterday). I also believe neither one of our back up QBs know the playbook well enough, or Fox doesn't approve their quality and/or leadership as QB. Jake is an AWESOME leader but is beginning to become a sorry QB.

Brother, you gotta leave the past in the past. Sadly, Fox and Jake has put their trust in each other over this team, I agree. If Fox properly evaluated Jake this offseason, I'm pretty sure we wouldn't have resigned him or we would have grabbed a

    • My worry isn't coming off the bench vs starting, it is Clifford playing him PERIOD. Clifford is absolutely terrible about giving young guys the burn they need to develop. Even when you had guys like Bismack looking like they were on the verge of figuring things out and averaging some great numbers per minute, Clifford wouldn't know what to do with them. Granted we haven't always had the best of young or rookie talent around here but NOTHING Cliff has done in his time here tells me he knows WTF to do with a player that isn't a 5 year vet. And seriously.. nothing against the MAN, he seems like a great person, but I'm 1000% done with the MKG experiment. He has taken up a roster spot long enough. Ill take someone that plays 3/4 of his defense and can actually put the ball in the bucket once in a while. Or, ya know, get the other team to play A LITTLE defense on them. His presence has gotten the idiot gm to overlook several FAR BETTER prospects over the years just because we don't want to admit he is a total BUST for where he was drafted. WAY TOOO MUCH EGO is wrapped up between the front office and MKG and its choking the life out of this franchise at times.
    • Na, he'll probably get picked in next years Draft.  Next years Draft is so bad, they even have Pinson getting Drafted
    • I keep seeing this and totally disagree.  Moderation in unhealthy things is not key. Moderation in processed meats is the same as moderation in cigarattes. Both could ultimately give you cancer and kill you. Same with dairy. Dairy is closely associated with prostate cancer due to the estrogen in milk, even skim milk.
