lol

lol?? Do you actually think I'm wrong? The team was always balanced with Moore at QB. Delhomme was always inches away from a mistake in 2008. We had one of the best running game's this decade. That's why we had success.

Delhomme successfully buried our team against Arizona and ruined us in 2009, along with Fox who refused to bench him.

It's time to move on don't you think? We have a new GM, new coach, and new QB.

Hurney was a pretty good gm at one point but it seems after the Arizona playoff game he just lost his mind.

we would have luck or griffin in that case cause if clausen was our qb in 2011 we would have won 2 games at most

Why couldn't we win a Super Bowl with Jake and THEN draft Cam?

Dummy.

If I remember correctly Jake restructured so we could pay Peppers. I think he saved 9 million against the cap. They paid him the 20 million guaranteed which was to pay him what they were going to in 2009 and an option which which was guaranteed which they could pay and have him for 2010 or not exercise it and still cost them that money. Jake figured that if he restructured he wanted to get paid for 2010 which he hoped would be improved over 2009. We won't know because he wasn't here, but don't tell me he wouldn't have been better than Clausen. And franchise quarterbacks, even declining ones, usually got big bucks because there just aren't enough of them to go around. That is why guys like Carson Palmer are still playing.

It is a shame that he never recovered from the surgery. He just didn't have zip on the ball. If you are going to be a gunslinger, you better be able to thread the needle. Something Jake was never great at doing, but he surely deteriorated after the injury. Sad really, He was such a fiery Cajun and motivator.

Until Cam consistently gets us in the playoffs, the quarterback with the most success in our short history has been Jake and its not even close. Don't get me wrong, Cam has the athletic skills that Jake could only dream about. I only hope Cam can develop the 4th quarter comeback skills that Jake had. The one thing that Cam has to develop is consistency and that means playing well in big situations when the pressure is on. Something Jake did well between 2003 and 2007.
