Saints Play by Play

All these years as a starter with different players around him and different defenses and Jake is 54 wins and like 30 losses.

This year his stats haven't been all that because we have a running game that is getting the job done. That's not Jake's fault. He's gotten us wins singlehandedly plenty before. Not being a homer but the fact is that about half of his INT's this year have been tipped or one of our offensive players has had a hand on it first. There haven't been near as many bone headed throws.

What makes us so dangerous this year is that we have a running game that we haven't had in many years. And an experienced QB in Delhomme that will make your defense pay if you concentrate on the running game too much he will throw and connect a 50 yarder to Smith to fug you over.

How many games this year has Delhomme thrown a 50 yard bomb to seal a win?

How about getting up off of the deck when King missed the block that led to the sack...And not throwing an interception. Leading his team down the field for another 4th quarter comeback.

Loud crowd. Final 2+ minutes.

47 yrds passing.

15 yrds running.

Hard sack on the way.

Field goal for the 4th quarter comeback.

They left 1 second on the clock for Brees to break the record. Thats what Brees was trying for on his last pass, wasn't it?

Here is a great example of a Panther fan trying to twist the truth. I heard Hokie Gajan make the comment that the poster mentioned. Here is what he said, "Jake came in the game with 14 TD's and 12 int.'s and in most situations that would get the QB run out of town but Jake brings so much more too this team than stats and all he does is win so the stats are overlooked and I would overlook them too. He is not flashy and not real impressive but when you get wins who cares"

Sounds like a great compliment from a fellow cajun to me.

Pretty good comeback. There is some bias around here.

Flashiness has nothing to do with it. And Jake is very exciting when you really think about it.

I do agree however that without Smitty the Jake Delhomme experiment would have ended long ago.

threw up a prayer that no one but Smith would have caught. !

You said it right there. the only problem is that I know you meant it as a bad thing when it is good. He was in trouble but got the ball to the one guy who could make a play. Case, like your season, closed!
