Funny that the title of this thread called for the JD haters but all the sniffers showed up ;)

I don't know about calling myself a "Blind Delhomme Jock Sniffer" but I sure as hell think he is able to lead this team to a SB and can be one of the best in the league. He hasn't been as good this year as in the past IMO but that doesn't mean that he won't be hot in the playoffs.

I found his source:

Yeah that list really goes to show how the game has changed. Look at the QB ratings vs. the Rushing Yards. So many of the Rushing leaders are retired, and the QB leaders active.

That pass at the Saints was right where it needed to be and Smith jumped up right to where he needed to be. Delhomme was hit as he threw it, that's a tough throw to make.

wow......just wow.

Just to throw a kink in your chain. Jake is rated the second worse QB in the playoffs, next to Jackson. What'dya say to that?

(They also rated our DB's second best and our Special Teams first, if that says anything.)

so culpepper is better than jake, ty LT pinkerton. he is 9th on the all time list. puts alot into perspective.




Yea it just shows how much that list doesn't mean poo.
Only 8 of the 20 posted on there have won SB's.


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

Sorry Passer Passing rating doesnt win ball games. I will give Jake credit he was money Sunday. Hope he plays that well the rest of the year.



Memers of the Jaker haters BOD.

3/4 of the "haters" would agree with 17th. thats average/below average.


17th highest quarterback rating of all time is average/below average?

I really hope I read that wrong....


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

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.
