Yeah, dat's da troof. That was a low point for me as a fan. I was definitely a disgruntled customer. It's an understatement to say that we had been through harder times, but it was frustrating to see our playoff hopes go down the drain because Haslett was too stuborn to do what everyone could see needed to be done.

Jake had played well whenever he had an opportunity to get on the field. All of the evidence at that time screamed that he should have went in and played instead of putting an injured AB in the game.

You can't say Haslett made a good decision way back then because Jake did not play well in 2009.

Avoid Jake like the plague I say. While Brunell needs to go, Jake is not the answer.

True. And you can't say Jake would be better than "X" QB as Drew's backup in 2010 because of what he did 3 or 4 years ago, regardless of who "X" QB is, because the numbers will show nobody has done any worse at the position than Delhomme lately. Recent history says he'd suck hard, cause that's all he's done for the last year +.

Jake failed to crack the starting lineup prior to AB, and post AB. He was cut by people not named Haslett. He didn't/doesn't have the tools, and it was an injury to the starting QB that got him on the field in Carolina. He did well for a while but the real Jake ultimately cost him his job and the Panthers a good 12 million. He's good on a 5 yard slant, but he panics in the pocket, throws lobs down the middle of the field when pressured, and generally tends to make poor decisions. That's not me being biased. Thats on his record for the world to see.

thanks voodoo your making all the sense in the world. delhomme is home he won't battle for the starting position. he will be 10 times better then uncle brunel.he will give us a hell of a chance of winning if drew ever goes down. we have a offensive line thats 2nd to none so drew may never see the whirlpool much less the bench. jake would be the best backup in the league. i don't know if he will take backup money. only if he concedes to being a starter i suppose.

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.
yes jake was horrid last year and half of the year before. why? he was running for his life every game and you are so right about the recievers they had. steve smith ain't all that like people think. he's if you ask me a dirty player getting away with pushoffs every game. every one else were like turtles in sand they could never get open so there went jakes career in pantherville.i really think we will be set for a while in saint kingdom. it could get us a draft pick after a year when someone could need a qb to finish a season.

GO NEW ORLEANS

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.
Agree with everything you said.

Let me add,some Saints fans loved loved the idea of Jake Delhomme, Breaux Bridge boy. Cajun boy.LA boy.
HE was at CP by then.

Some Saints fans have selected memory. Some have imaginations.
Bobby- they loved Bob-bay A-Bear from Cut Off, Louisiana boy. He was an average QB. He was from LA, but he was average.
Arch, Miss'sippi boy...loved Arch. Archie Manning was an average QB.
The Saints during the late 80's , I think, could have had Warren Moon,but nah, so Richard Todd was Saints QB. Oh boy! Richard Todd. Choosing Richard Todd over Warren Moon,figure that one out.
Correct me if I am wrong about the timing here.
Kenny "Snake" Stabler was past due when Bum brought him in.

Now,Jake is free. I know, many Saints are so excited at the thought of having Jake, Cajun Breaux Brdige boy, LA native play in his backyard, but thinking realistically and thinking Playoff's and Saints future, this is not so good. It is a real feel good ,cute, story to have Jake Da-lome from Bro Bridg, Loosiana!!!
Jake is an older QB at 35. JD is a first string QB still.
Brees is 31 and is a strong QB and Saints first string QB. What will Jake do? Sit on the bench.
The cost for JakeD is a lot of money. NFL is a business, but this is kind of like a stab to Brees, you know.

Better would be get a young QB. Get one with potential. Get one for Saints future. Get one now at a lesser price and who can sit backand learn from Brees and Saints coaches.

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.
What fad?
What are you and saintsfan talking about?
I am lost.

Jake Delhomme to spend weekend with New Orleans Saints

Jake Delhomme's career took off when he left the Louisiana nest for the first time in 2003, signing with the Carolina Panthers and immediately leading them to a Super Bowl berth.

Now, the New Orleans Saints want the free-agent quarterback to come back home.
Delhomme, a Breaux Bridge native, former Louisiana-Lafayette star and former Saints backup will visit the Saints on Friday and Saturday to explore the idea of becoming an insurance policy for Super Bowl XLIV MVP Drew Brees.

He'll be the second free agent to visit the Saints this year, following defensive end James Hall, who arrived Thursday. Hall, 32, is a New Orleans native who prepped at St. Augustine and has spent his 10-year career with the Detroit Lions and St. Louis Rams.

Delhomme, 35, was released last week by the Panthers, who are moving on with young replacement Matt Moore. Carolina decided to wipe the remaining portion of Delhomme's sizable contract off the books even though the team still owes him more than $12 million in guaranteed money.

Delhomme made his first visit to the Cleveland Browns on Wednesday and Thursday and could explore other options after his trip to New Orleans. It's not clear yet if he's set on competing for a starting job or willing to sign on as a backup.
