Jake Delhomme haters please enter this thread

So less than half of the best rated passers in NFL history have rings, passer rating-worthless stat.

Passer rating is an individual stat....I look at SB wins as more of a team stat.

Agreed. Unless some here think that Mark Rypien and Trent Dilfer are better QB's than Dan Fouts and Dan Marino.

Also, Eli Manning and Jake Delhomme both have one Super Bowl appearance. Is there anyone that seriously believes Eli had a better superbowl than Jake did. Regardless of the outcome, Jake played his ass off in that Superbowl while Eli was ok in his one superbowl appearance.

Jake has been a "learn as U go" quarterback. Fox is stuck on him like Parcells gets stuck on QB's..they've both learned about each other as the years have progressed. I didn't realize how important Jake was until last season when he got injured. Most QB's come in the league with the experience and bring their experience 2 the team..JAKE however...has gone through a learning process over the years from my point of view..and it's just now starting 2 pay off and work in his favor.

17th highest rated QB ever, among other things.

I really enjoyed this article. Glad to see him get some respect.

I used to think Jake just threw up Gimmes, but this has been happening again and again for a while now....There has to be a method to this madness...lol...I don't know how they do it man

Keep 'em coming tho

Jake Delhomme reminds me a little bit of Billy Kilmer, but with better receivers. Billy was never pretty, did pretty well when he had some decent players around him.

Yeah, I thought the same thing. 17th all time is top 5% at least.

that makes culpepper top 2%, damn why did no one pick up the 9th best pass rated qb all time until near the end of the year. this proves its a bogus stat. so this list has him above elway, johnny U, and countless others that are head and shoulders above jake. pennington is top 6?? come on.

Yeah that list just goes to show you that numbers don't tell the whole story. John Elway was definitely better than 90% of the guys on that list.

I am happy with Jake for the most part this year. Let's just leave it at that.

Do you really think that either of those guys give a poo if they are better than Marino or not?

They have a ring and he doesn't, and I can pretty much bet you Marino would rather be a little less "good" and have that ring, than be an all time great and not have one.

Anyone who still hates Delhomme after comparing last year to this year is a total dumbass. No shortage of those around here though...

I don't see many people posting here who say they hate Jake, but I'm sure Fumbling Foster had NOTHING to do with us sucking last year either.

I'm not saying it's not a bogus stat. Just like power rankings. But 17th is not average when you consider how many QBs have played in the NFL.
