I'll bite and play devil's advocate!

 

#2: Jake had a better career than 95% of the QB's that come into the league.  In his prime, there were few QB's that could match his clutch throws. I would say a Superbowl appearance in your first year with a team is about as good as you can get.  Winning would have made him great, no matter what he did the rest of his career.  

#3: Carolina had the best defensive line in 2003, no doubt.

#4: Jake Delhomme was a better QB than Brees until 2006 when he teamed up with Sean Peyton.  I'm sure no one cared to say that until he moved to the NFC South but still, there was a time that was a true statement.  Know what you mean though.  

 

 

2. so Tent Dilfer was a great QB.

3. It was up there but the greatest might be pushing it.

4. Jake might have won more games until 2006 but Brees was still the better QB.

Jake Delhomme was great for a few years. That one wasn't a myth.

If you compare the play of the QB's through their respective playoff runs, no one's comparing Delhomme to Dilfer.  Delhomme carried the Panthers in the Superbowl.  It was arguably the best game of his career.  Dilfer just didn't lose the game so the defense could win it.

Since this is the 10th year of the Huddle I thought I would throw out some gems of past popular believes on the Huddle.

 

 

1.  Steve Smith isn't a #1 receiver because he is to short.  Yes that was a popular opinion on this board at one time.

 

2. Jake Delhomme is a great QB.  Jake was a good / serviceable QB.  Great was stretching it.

 

3. We have the best (enter LB Corp / Front four/ CB Corp)  Fact of the matter the only best we had was running back duo in 2008.

 

4.  My personal favorite.   Jake is a better QB than Drew Brees.  Yeah that one people really said.

 

5. John Fox cant coach.  Yeah taking a team to the playoffs with The Golden Calf of Bristol proved that one wrong.

 

Please feel free to add any you remember.

I've broke down the John Fox coaching style on here so many times on the why, when and how it works I dont even want to think about it, but yeah I was damn tired of him putting his hands in on the Offense and was glad to see him go just because of that alone.

 

lets say his style works if you are undertalented on offense but have a strong defense, he plays to slow the game down and for you to play at his pace, which works perfectly well with The Golden Calf of Bristol, but trust me he has nothing to do with the offense in Denver, he's been told hands off.  it truely annoys me to think how he's probably going to be remember for winning the supper bowl in Denver this year only because he's been told to not touch the offense.

still no dont get the prior to 2006 thing, there was a reason the Chargers kept Rivers over Brees and it wasn't because they thought Brees was better then Rivers. but if you were to ask today who was the better between them now it's no contest Brees.

 

I hate revisionist history to my Core so lets not make poo up
