Delhomme would make much more sense at QB coach. Idk what our current staff was thinking hiring Ken Dorsey...a guy who wasn't good enough to be a third stringer.

I wouldn't mind bring Jake in for a role in the organization but not OC. That's a big stretch. He would need some years under a mentor of such. Maybe he will be a good QB coach for starters, who knows

Would put us where we are now...hiring someone with no proven record....Shula was a horrible OC before, what do we think about him now...I had hopes too....but looks like he has no ability to change on the fly..

Nope.

 

Offensive Coordinators need to be great at teaching and strategy.

 

Nothing in Delhomme's past suggests he has either of these skills.

 

You don't go from 0 coaching experience to an OC.

doesnt he have experience coaching horses or something?  That's enough for me

I agree Jake was a great quarterback in his prime, and Jakes biggest quarterback attributes were mental toughness and leadership. He would be a quarterback coach with a winning pedigree. We haven't had that here. We need that here.

As much as we hate to admit it Cam never faced adversity with winning until he got to the Panthers . Mental toughness will help him overcome the loser mentality that has infested our team the last five years. Leadership will allow Cam to rally the troops. Delhomme can help Cam develop intangibles of a true leader, which will help the team grow, and help the team win.

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned here or if he is even eligible to coach yet (I tried to google this but found nothing, and I know he isn't technically retired yet), but what about bringing in Jake Delhomme as next years OC. HEAR ME OUT!

 

1) HE HAS THE FIRE!

There is not a single TRUE Panthers fan that can say Jake didn't know how to fire this team up. And with so many guys still on the team today he played with, they would have total respect for him. I don't think Shula have either of these things going for him.

 

2) HE IS A LEADER OF MEN
I personally think Jake was the best leader of men this franchise has ever had. I will never forget being in the stands during the Bears game (2008) where he got hit late, jumped up, and pounded his chest while screaming to the point we could hear him in the nosebleeds. After that, the WHOLE TEAM got behind him. 

 

3) HE KNOWS HOW TO ADJUST

I miss the days where we saw our QB screaming audibles from under center. Delhomme had a good eye for what the other team was doing, and adjusted quickly. Today, this team.... Just doesn't adjust at all.

 

4) HE KNOWS THE GAME OF FOOTBALL

He made not be an X's and O's evil genius, but he knows the game. #17 got to the point where he was basically running the Offense by himself from the line. How many games did we go to the hurry up in the last few minutes with Jake calling every play. I can remember him not even looking to the sideline for a whole drive, just running it himself.

 

Which brings me to my final point, which IMO is the biggest trait of them all...

 

5) HE KNOWS HOW TO FINISH GAMES

How may times did he lead us to a 4th quarter comeback? How many last second drives to win? I believe this can be taught to Cam & Co.. 

 

The only reason I bring this up is because I have a gut feeling our new HC will (AGAIN) be a D-minded kinda guy. Therefore, we need an OC who the Head Coach can truth to call the plays, make adjustments, and fire up this team. J-A-K-E!

 

(Please don't make this a thread for bashing Delhomme. We all know about the Playoff game VS Arizona. We all know he had his ups-and-downs. This is strictly about him possible becoming our next OC. I know it's hard, but please stay on topic.)

 

lol

Love Jake, but no.

You don't take a guy who's never coached at any level and make him your offensive coordinator. Maybe if he started as a QC and worked his way up...
