LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The Carolina Panthers have been silent about their quarterback situation this offseason. But one of their most prominent players strongly lobbied for veteran Jake Delhomme on Friday.

“All in all, Jake is the quarterback that led us to a Super Bowl and to an NFC Championship Game,’’ Pro Bowl running back DeAngelo Williams said. “This is a quarterback who has proven he can do it. So he had one bad season. We all have a bad day at work and sometimes we have a string of bad days at work. The nature of the business is they want you out because they think the guy behind you can do a better job. He just had a bad half season.’’

Williams made the comments while attending "ESPN The Weekend'' at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports and Hollywood Studios.

Defending Delhomme, who struggled mightily before suffering a season-ending injury, might not be popular with Carolina fans these days. Matt Moore started after Delhomme was injured and played well. That’s made him a favorite with Carolina fans. Those fans may be hoping the Panthers cast Delhomme aside, but Williams said that’s not the sentiment in the locker room.

“The confidence is still there,’’ Williams said. “The great quarterbacks aren’t the quarterbacks that just come out and light up a game and throw for 500 yards and four or five touchdowns. The great quarterbacks are the quarterbacks who can throw six or seven picks the day before and get back in the huddle the next day and still be the leader of his team. Jake can definitely do that.’’

I think D. Will should just not say anything. Delhomme cost us at least 4 games last year. Matt Moore will make your job easier D Willy!

But how's that going to go over in week six when Jake proves he still sucks, and Moore is named the starter?

He probably was trying to keep a straight face the entire time. Yeah I think he's just trying to offer encouragement for Jake more than anything.

I think I missed the part where DeAngelo said he thinks Jake should remain the starter.
