carolina fans are different. not many people are mad at john kasay for blooping the ball out of bounds. i wish we would sign jake though for this year and have him retire a panther

I'm still a big Jake fan and I think you're right, people don't have the hatred towards him like Boston fans do/did have towards Buckner.

I'm not really angry at Jake per se, but just angry at that game in general I think, which of course mainly is because of Jake. I may not be old enough to remember some of the earlier teams in Panthers history, but that team was special and I'd have to say the best team we've had in our history, so going out the way we did just hurt a lot.

I do think Jake will forever be loved by Panther fans, and it's a shame he couldn't have been here a few more years because if he was, I think he'd have had his #17 retired eventually

I agree with this 100%. If you followed Carolina closely from 2003 to 2010 and you still have a sour view of Jake you're honestly not giving him the credit he deserves.

Jake Delhomme is my homeboy. Loved him then love him now. Still have his jersey on the wall along with his autographed pics. I was at that playoff game. Lord knows how it hurt. But it's in the past god bless the rajun Cajun.

Edit: also have a box of Jake Flakes!

OP is 100% spot on... 2008 seemed too good to be true, we had two 1,100 yd backs... The Big Cat was suffering the health problems, and got his heart transplant. It just seemed as though it was our destiny to win it all that year... The storyline was practically writing itself...We all know what happened, no need to revisit it. I'm still kind of salty about it though tbh... I hope that one day I can forgive him... And I also hope that it's soon.

I'll never forget watching the first qtr of that game in the hangar waiting to fly out of Afghanistan... Only to learn of what transpired afterwards when we layed over in Germany... Why I put myself through the pain of watching it when I got home, I'll never truly understand... Yep... I'm still fuggin pissed Jake.

Wow! No thank you. I thought I was going to get flamed. He was a good Panther and doesn't deserve this poo that follows him. Thanks brother.

If we win it all before Jerry expires we just might.

TY, I was afraid to post this when I was finished and was about to click on "Add reply". He was only a cog, but he was a good cog during his tenure. Thanks for not throwing me to the Hounds of Hell.

I wonder how many people were thinking Brenson Buckner before they actually read the thread...

TCF, I had a feeling you might comment on this. He was a good Panther. Couple of breaks here and there...Ring of Honor.
Thanks for acknowledging my thread. I don't know much, but I know I love these Panthers.
