Cam wearing Jake Delhomme jersey at practice

I wish people would give Jake the respect he deserves though. He flamed out at the end of his stint here and I was definitely ready for a change but he gave us all a lot of good years and memories. I hope he gets the chance to retire a panther. In our short history he is one of the better players to walk through the doors.

There was an article a few weeks ago that mentioned this: http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2012/11/29/3696247/panthers-cam-newton-finds-its.html

In the past week, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has worn Joe Adams’ No. 15 jersey and Jimmy Clausen’s No. 7 on the practice field. Thursday, he practiced with his red No. 1 jersey on backward.

Why? Newton says he’s finding places to have fun as he tries to lead his team to a second consecutive win for the first time all season.

“It’s just something to have fun with, to see yourself in a different jersey number,” Newton said. “It’s kind of like comedy for practice just to change the vibe a little bit.”

He has five more playoff wins than Matt Ryan.

Cam- just do whatever you've been doing. Having fun, wearing different numbers...we will take 12+ TDs with no turnovers

Does his jersey say "Delhomme" on the back too?

Nobody can touch Jake's 9 game winning drives from 2003.

Also, before the NGCCG in Seattle, he was by far the highest rated playoff QB of all time. The law of averages worked against him his final two playoff games.

That being said, however, the #17 jersey is cursed.

I felt Jake was pretty efficient in the 2008 season save for the Lions and Raiders game. Then Arizona happened....still nice to see current players honoring the past.

I re-watched a lot of 2008 he was pretty bad the entire season. He just had very solid receiving options as well as a borderline unstoppable running game. He's a gunslinger through and through. Just flies by the seat of his pants.

Anybody remember what # 17 did against the Chargers the last time the Panthers played in San Diego? My living room still has ding marks from that Sunday afternoon :)

Would you guys still be open to cutting Clausen to bring in JD to mentor Cam? I think that would be awesome still. Just ways to handle pressure, make him a little more clutch (fingers crossed) just a thought

Or end of game heroics and intangibles out the ass.
