Jake Delhomme to Visit Saints (Cleveland signs Jake)

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; And at least Jake has led a team to a Superbowl so maybe he has some distant memory of being a winner. Oh yeah and our weapons are light years better than Carolina's one trick pony....

Re: Jake Delhomme to Visit Saints

This wouldn't be a bad deal signing Jake. We are buying low since he's coming off a horrid year. He'd be an okay #2, but it would be exciting to see if Chase Daniel or a rookie QB can come in and beat him for the job.

In Jake's defense, he was trying to force a lot of passes to the only playmaker the team has in the receiving corps. Not to say that he didn't have a bad season, because he truly did. I just think there is more to it than that. It kind of reminds me of the Browns QB situation, but they have absolutely ZERO playmakers on offense and no offensive line and that makes Anderson and Quinn look drastically worse statistically.
Well I don't completely disagree, but Delhomme was not the victim of a bad team. The Panthers, while not the Patriots of late or the Cowboys of the 90's or even the Saints of last year are not a bad team. They are a decent team that suffered through at least the last year and a half of some of the worst QB play ever by a 'starting' NFL QB. The stats back it up. The wins and losses back it up, and the fact that they just took something like a 12m dollar hit to get rid of the guy should tell anyone all they need to know.

We are not aking him to start. We are asking him to come off the bench and take over while Brees is out. Do you really think Daniels or Brunell would be better? You MUST be a AB fan.

Re: Jake Delhomme to Visit Saints

Jake needs a change of scenery.

I don't have a problem with him competing for a backup spot.

Let's just hope he doesn't get flashbacks if he goes in...

LACES OUT!!!!!

Re: Jake Delhomme to Visit Saints

Needless to say it's pretty obvious that Brunell is not going to make it back on the roster. I think if the Saints sign Delhomme it would be the correct move. I am sure by working with Sean Payton he would be a very solid QB for the Saints. If not Delhomme, the Saints really need to find a new 2nd QB. I really like Brunell a lot, but it's pretty clear he is finished.

Re: Jake Delhomme to Visit Saints

It's this simple...no Drew = losing season. Manning has never had a worthy back up because evryone knows the Colts will do nothing without him. Same for us. Pass on Delhomme and bring in a young QB to develop.

BTW...Haslett was scared to put Jake in when AB's shoulder was torn up because of the "fad" the press was having at the time with QB controversies. Delhomme would have done well, AB would be coming off surgery and Haslett would be in a tough spot. Delhomme would have likely become our starter the next season if we lost some early games, Drew Brees would not have come here and we would still not be World Champions.

Jake was already gone. Anyone remember Brooks' back up? Todd Bouman? He was TERRIBLE.
Brooks is gone, but at the time Haslett made the best decision for the team. The evil u know, is better
than the evil u don't know. Haslett and AB are gone now. If they bring jake back so be it, but I
just think we have more pressing signings, than the back up QB right now.


Not really ... the whole world knew AB was hurt ... Jake could have come in for the last three games and made a difference.

I think either Daniels or Brunell would do just as well as Jake, and I base that on Jakes performance over the past year +. The guy has done nothing but suck and suck hard. Did he set a record for INTS over that span?

As for AB, I supported the guy, yes. I'm no hater. I also don't see where that has diddly poo to do with this discussion.

Based on recent evidence, what he might have done is throw 6 ints in those 3 games. No thanks.
