Jake is Smitty's #1 QB of all time. Where we rank him is irrelevant.

Another reason Jake was so good was the fact that we got him from New Orleans where he was a Cajun.

We went to a Superbowl with him while they sat idly by barely making it with Aaron Brooks.

He was on their fricken bench!

F you Louisiana.

Under 2 minutes in 2003 the Bucs score to take the lead.  I was at the game and I've never been so crushed by a football game.  I slumped in my seat and felt like crying.  It was over.  But Jake Delhomme still had a minute left to drive the length of the field.  He hit a different receiver on almost every throw and hit Smith on a slant in the red zone to win the game.  I almost passed out I was so excited.  

 

 

 

Was this the 2nd game we played against the Bucs that year?  Because IIRC, the first game against them, we were up 13-7 when the Bucs drove the length of the field and scored a TD to win the game, but Kris Jenkins blocked the XP.  With his elbow...

 

Then we won the game in OT.

Jake was a GOOD QB, not a great but people need to give him more respect.   He had TWO triple crown receivers in different years.  Smith and Moose.  Moose hardly did anything when he left us, so I can't say he made Jake.   Smith is a beast but he hasn't been as beastly since Jake left.  Jake knew exactly where to put the ball for Smith to go up, it was as much him as Smith.  Not to mention the clutch games from Jake, the competitive fire, the raw emotion, the class, and the ability to except blame when it was due (and actually mean it).    

 

He's the perfect example of intangibles, and if we could somehow combine that with Cam's talent, we could have a freak QB.

 

Moose never won the triple crown, Smitty was the last player to win it in 2005, and Moose's great year in 2004 wasn't a triple crown winner, he only led the NFL in 2 receiving categories, not 3...Still very impressive for Jake and Moose esp. since Smith was out that whole year...

Ok so correction, Jake had the #1 WR in the league statistically for two years with two different receivers, when one of them was a clear #2 for his career.  Point still valid though :)

I would love that but Jake said he has many offers and turns them down so he can watch his kids play sports on the weekends.
