Yer probably right, I guess I didn't need to stir the pot but the BJDJS really get on my last nerve when they talk about how he has this plan worked out with the receivers to just chuck it up and let them come down with it. That's a pant-load my friend.

1) You are the only that said anything about this "plan". Go ahead and show me where someone said Jake is great because he just throws up balls. Someone said that Jake and Smitty work on those throws because that IS TRUE OMG!!!!

2) You were stirring the pot from the start. Nobody "got on your nerve"

Don't be deluded yourself. Just because you wrote a long post, it doesn't make anything you wrote true.

Jeeze, I dunno....I'd say working on throwing up rainbows when Smitty is covered sounds sorta like a plan (or at least part of one). If they're working on it then it's pretty safe to say it's part of the gameplan.

Really? You should probably go back and read the thread then...quite a few comments that I took to mean that Jake knew exactly what he was doing.

what? hehe...dang, what a point! you sound like the guy who made the "better QB" crack.

No one disagrees that JD throws em up hoping Smitty (or Moose or whoever) will come down with it....but they accept it, while it worries me. Got a problem with that? Tough sh*t...it's my opinion. You have yours, which is cool, allow me to have mine. And don't worry, there's plenty of room in Jake's jock for ya.

Smitty has bailed out Jake with his throws his whole career. Today was a prime example. He has all day to throw yet throws ducks to Smith twice while Smith makes the spectacular circus catch. Smith has'nt been the only one. Moose was the one doing it in 2004. Whats lame is the nut huggers coming up with statements out their ass like "what other QB would have the guts to trow into double coverage" or "cause you're a much better QB" other asinine bullsh*t 'cause they can't stand even the slightest bit of criticism of Jake when its the truth....f*cking idiot.

Maybe you've never heard of the end justifies the means, but guess what dipshit, it does.

Jake threw that ball to Smith seeing as he's made that EXACT same catch THREE TIMES in a row against the Saints, one last time we met, and twice in today's game. If you think in the situation the game was in, there was anyone else open, guess again, because the Saints knew we weren't going to run the ball, so all they had to do was go to quarter defense cover 2. That play was gonna go to Steve Smith NO MATTER WHAT the coverage.

You just want the prototypical QB like a Matt Ryan or a Drew Brees, that's why you look for everything you can to make Jake seem like less than he is. Did you forget that Jake won the first two games without Steve Smith? Did you forget how close that Rosario throw was to being picked off, but yet it won the game in the last second? You and your cronies think bashing the old QB is fashionable, when it is in fact show it is just showing how foolishly naive you are.

Smith and Jake work well together and they work on these things together. Smith even talks about practicing that exact play. The Greenbay play, Jake and Smith spoke of Jake telling Smith to keep running because they knew the coverage they would get. If you're going to hold it against a QB for trusting his WR, then God forbid any QB throws anything into coverage, because guess what, the great WRs make catches like that routinely in tight coverage.

Maybe you don't trust Smith to make that catch, but Jake does...and damn right we're glad he's our QB and not a yellow bellied moron like you.

That was amazing. Everyone was covered, Jake was about to get sacked....so what else....he just threw the ball up to Smitty....he was double covered...so what...he is Smitty....and Jake knows it.

It was amazing. It got us a home playoff game. Thank you Smitty....thank you Jake.

I agree. I can't believe Jake was taken down as soon he threw the ball to Smitty from where he was 10 yards behind Saints's field goal line. It was a big risk, but Smitty got it. Sometime you just have to take risk to go for it & hope someone get it. That why Jake is a gunslinger & a risk taker. Sometime risk taker can help you win games. :cool:

Jake knows exactly what he is doing. You can call it smitty bailing him out but the truth is that Jake is throwing the ball where he knows that his receiver can make a play on it. He knows that Smitty not only comes down with the ball most every time. But he also knows that if Smitty doesn't catch it neither will the other guys. So he isn't really risking that much. How many times does he not get the ball and it gets intercepted once he has his hands on the ball? Not many! Smitty is going to be double teamed in most critical situations like that. You decide. If you have to make a throw to a receiver in a critical situation and had Smitty down the middle with help over the top or do you go with Moose or Rosario or Hackett who will likely be single covered but aren't as sure handed. Maybe on first or second down you might. But by third down I am going to Smith if he is doubled covered no matter what. I have seen him make unbelievable catches. So has Jake. Truth is it is a highly successful low risk play. THe kind you take when the situation gets critical. ANd it is much better to underthrow it versus overthrowing it and giving him no chance.

Don't get your bashing at all. Any play that works 80% of the time will definitely be in my playbook. It would be crazy if it wasn't near the top.

Yep it's always icing vs cake.

The people who matter get it.

“I know it’s not pretty when Jake and I hook up, but the results are what counts,” Smith said.

(Jake) Him and I might be a little unorthodox in the way we do things, but I think we work well together and we’re just going to try to keep it going.”

Coach John Fox insisted Delhomme’s throw was more than just a veteran quarterback “chucking the ball” in the air and hoping for the best.

In his opinion, the pass was the result of years of work and timing developed between Delhomme and Smith, as well as a lot of other things going right, too.

"At the end of the day, it was a pretty good ball and an excellent catch, and those two guys have done that over time this season and in seasons past," Fox said. "I'm sure Drew Brees and his receivers have had situations like that over the course of the year. So has every quarterback-receiver combination. They do it pretty well."

Guess he "locked on to Smitty" too since Smitty was option #3 on that play.
