as much as i hated delhomme in his last 2 years here, he at least took shots downfield. it pains me to say it, but i'd rather have #17 under center than the pickle.

because he doesn't take chances. checkdowns don't cut it in this league. when it is 3rd and 17, a 5 yard checkdown rarely gets it done.
he's thrown more TDs to opposing teams than he has his own. that folks is a sign of a garbage QB.

lol didn't he get picked on a checkdown against the Seahawks? I almost laughed at that one.

He can throw the ball to the sideline pretty well.

He is rarely called for a block in the back penalty.

He just does not take chances at throwing the long ball.

He seems to give the impression that he does not have adult level social skills, including leadership skills.

He needs to see a Sports Psychologist.

I wouldn't say 5 INTS in 7 starts is good. It isn't horrific like we have seen but that isn't really good. He has 7 turnovers in his 7 starts. A turnover a game isn't protecting the ball...that is actually high considering the fact he isn't throwing much or downfield.

He has 9 turnovers. 8 starts this year.


We've grown accustomed to much, much worse. 9 turnovers in 8 starts for us is like manna from heaven.
