I see the comparison, but disagree somewhat. It's one thing for a coach to pull the reins in on a player, but when the owner doesn't allow his head coach to have final say on what play is being called...well...that's almost unheard of.

Zorn needs to leave if he hasn't already. Every minute that he stays in that situation causes him to lose any credibility that he might have had.

Jake is slumping, he may or may not bounce back, but I would think that by now he has earned enough to have one of the most beautiful horse ranches in Louisiana.

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

Re: Am I wrong, but look at Jakes face

Jake has one target with ability in Smith and he's a complete punk that's not NEARLY as good as he thinks he still is. Jake should have been the QB in New Orleans. They didn't give him a fair shake and Carolina did. He has won ALOT of games in Carolina and has taken them to the Super Bowl. Put Colston, Shockey, Moore, Henderson and Meachem on his team, and the conversation would be much different. Don't get me wrong. I had rather have Brees. He makes the recievers mentioned above better more so than the other way around. But, Brees has had EIGHT turnovers the past three weeks. Much like the stretch Delhomme had to begin this year. No one is calling for him to be replaced. My point is Delhomme is not THE problem in Carolina. WHO DAT!

Any day Delhomme loses is a good day.

Steve Smith is a punk, yes, agreed. I dont know enough to know what to say about Delhomme, but its good to see someone defend him, for a change. He got so much hate on my old board. If he werent a Panther, I'd be pulling for him.

Was this as evident on tv as it was in the Dome? I kept telling my neighbors
in the Terrace, "John Fox has zero confidence in Delhomme." It bit them in the 2nd half, as we just started doubling Steve Smith, and stacking the line everywhere else.

I've certainly never heard such nonsense as pulling the coaches play-calling. Dan Snyder has earned a rep as one of sports biggest IDIOTS.

You gotta admit, it would be nice to be "struggling" at your job, and still have a big ranch. Is it in Breaux Bridge?

Touche, my friend!

I think he raises horses somewhere in that vicinity...just going on my memory from some of his past interviews. It would be the life, though. Raising horses, eating mud bugs, po-boys and gumbo...fishing...what else is there?

You can't walk away from the money no matter how bad it gets. Make them fire you.

Speaking of Jake's "b@lls", did anyone else here Billick say, "The thing I like about Jake's b@lls....."? I didn't hear the rest of his analysis, because I was choking on my beer.
My friends and I paused for a moment after Billick said that. Shortly after the pause was a booming laughter from all over the room. If it weren't for the gutter, our minds would be homeless.

Re: Am I wrong, but look at Jakes face

Considering that yesterday was the first time in Jake's career that he's lost in Louisiana, I don't really feel too bad for him.
