    To be fair, Jake was signed by the Texans after the 12th week of the NFL season after injuries decimated their quarterback group. To say he couldn't "beat out" the players we were already on the team is a mischaracterization.

    Would you be being fair if it wasn't jake? Jake had a good run but hasn't been very good in a few years. Regardless, a playoff contender trusted a rookie more than a veteran who played in a Super Bowl, colt McCoy and Matt Moore both just lost their jobs to rookies 2 weeks into training camp. Jake is no where near the top of his game, it's not a knock on the man, he's getting old, it happens even to the best.

    I'd answer the same to any player picked up after 3/4 of the NFL season. You don't sign & immediately run a unique offense, which to the best of my knowledge only Houston & Washington run, and start that week. Of course as with all opinions, for better or worse, it's mine.

    So would you say Donovan Mcnabb is going out near the top of his game? Their careers ended in similar fashion

    I never said he was at the top of his game. He wasn't. I was saying that when he was picked up by Houston last year that he was already behind someone who was young but already familiar with the offense. It's not like her was there for training camp and familiar with all the line/receivers/backs involved. It takes time to build a rapport with personnel. That's all.

    I responded to a post that said jake would rather go out at the top of his game than hold a clip board. All I said was he isn't near the top of his game and hasn't been for a while.

    Sorry then, I mistook your quote "Jake is not near the top of his game, he got beat out by a rookie in houston last year".

    Jake, at the top of his game would have beaten a rookie, training camp or not.

    Jake at the top of his game would have won the Super Bowl if his coach had been on the top of his game.

    As is Jake was voted the top performance by a QB on a non winning role.

    Actually if his kicker doesn't kick the kickoff out of bounds, he most likely wins the Super Bowl

    Jake at the top of his game would not have been sitting at home for the first 11 weeks of the season. So the state of his game is not really in question.

    That being said, he didn't get beat out by a rookie. There was no competition. It was the rookie's job before Jake even had a tryout.

    So when said he only wanted to sign with a contender, what he meant was I want to go somewhere where I don't even have a chance to play? Really? Jake hasn't been good for 3 years, the last good season he had was after surgery when they went 12-4, since then he has been pretty bad, sugar coat it any way you want.

  14. UL Football Carolina Perspective

    The rise and fall of Jake Delhomme is a subject of both pride and pain for Carolina Panther fans as they reflect on their former quarterback who won their hearts, only to later break those same hearts in spectacular fashion.

    By the time his career ended in Carolina, Jake and his fans had developed one of the most emotionally complex relationships in recent NFL history, a relationship that began with adoration but sadly ended with Jake being booed into oblivion by the same fans who once adoringly cheered him.

    Like no other player before him, Panther fans viewed Jake Delhomme as both a hero and a goat, the face of the franchise's greatest successes and the author of some of its most epic failures.

    Default Vote Jake for the cover of Madden

    The bad news is he has to beat out Joe Montana(perhaps the greatest quarterback ever according to Kevin Foote:-)in order to advance in the voting.

  17. Default LHC Group names retired NFL quarterback Jake Delhomme to Founder's Advisory Board

    LAFAYETTE, LA - LHC Group has named retired NFL Pro Bowl quarterback and former University of Southwestern Louisiana standout Jake Delhomme to the company's Founder's Advisory Board.

    The LHC Group Founder's Advisory Board was established to promote and maintain a positive company culture based on trust, empowerment and teamwork. Lafayette-based LHC Group is a national provider of post-acute care services.

    The board works to communicate the company's mission to build and inspire organizational loyalty and passion, share the values that guide business practices and decisions, and encourage individual ownership of both the company's bottom-line results and its cultural foundation.

    "Jake Delhomme shares LHC Group's pride in our Louisiana roots," said Keith Myers, LHC Group chairman and CEO. "Jake built his career the same way we built this company – through hard work and perseverance.

    "As LHC Group continues to grow, our success will depend on the strength of our company culture. With his proven work ethic and dedication, Jake is a valuable addition to the Founder's Advisory Board and its mission to promote and maintain a strong culture."

    Delhomme quarterbacked the University of Southwestern Louisiana Ragin Cajuns from 1993 to 1997. He was signed by the New Orleans Saints as an undrafted free agent after the 1997 NFL Draft, where he played in his first career NFL game in 1999. Delhomme signed with the Carolina Panthers in 2003 and was the team's starting quarterback from 2003 to 2009. In his first season with the Panthers he led the team to an appearance in Super Bowl XXXVIII and would go on to set many team records.

    Delhomme currently resides in Breaux Bridge, La., with his wife and two daughters, where he raises and trains thoroughbred race horses and serves as the president of the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association. He also holds a seat on the board of directors for Mid South Bank.

    "I know from experience that success requires teamwork, and that teamwork requires a positive, nurturing culture across the entire organization," said Delhomme. "With the Founder's Advisory Board, LHC Group has demonstrated a proactive attitude in creating and maintaining this kind of culture. I am excited about the opportunity to join LHC Group in their mission to bring quality home health care to patients across the nation."

    I'll take Jake's slightly less strong hand any day. I read he was voted the best Super Bowl performance by a quarterback on a losing team.
