Jake Delhomme to Visit Saints (Cleveland signs Jake)

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I like what Brunell does for the team, but not sure I am confident with either as the backup. Fingers crossed Drew stays safe...

Re: Jake Delhomme to Visit Saints

u guys arent confident with a former pro bowler and a promising rookie as our backups?

maybe i missed something but why would you guys rather have a guy like delhomme who doesnt know the system and is now known for throwing INTs as opposed to 2 guys who spent nearly the entire season with us last year?

Re: Jake Delhomme to Visit Saints

I'm concerned with him being left handed...I can live with Mark being "older." I'll have to wait to see Chase in PS since I haven't seen him make any throws. I have faith in Payton, but switching from the Cardinals game with Drew's timing and being right handed to Mark and being left handed in 1 week in the playoffs against the Vikes....I don't see that working out too well.

Re: Jake Delhomme to Visit Saints

After reading about 6 pages of comments, I'd like to give some history.
Year 2002, 5th to last game, Saints comfortably ahead of opponent (was it Tampa?), then would go 3 and out and opponent would come down and score; Saints would go 3 and out and opponent would come down and score again; if it happened one more time Saints would lose; Jake was sent in and got the first down to save the game (pass to Joe Horn, hit hard, on ground, and snaked his hand ahead indicating first down). 4th to last game, Jake played most of second half and won that one. Final 3 games Jake sat the bench, Saints lost all 3, didn't make playoffs though loaded with talent except in coaching staff.
Year 2003, 1st game of season at Carolina: starting qb Rodney Peete was not injured, led Panthers to 38 total yards in first half and no first downs (maybe 1 first down); opponent received in second half; score 17-0 by the time Carolina got the ball; starter benched, Jake came in to lead a totally differently performing team; Carolina won 24-20 (I think) with a pass to Proehl with some seconds left.
Re noodle arm. Jake participated in 2 QB competitions in off-season. In first, his long pass was 65 yards; in second the following year, which he won, long pass was 73 yards and was the longest (I think) in that competition. His arm is supposed to be stronger after TJ surgery.

No, I'm not confident with Brunell as our backup. Dan Marino is a former pro bowler too but I wouldn't want him running the team either. It is a rarity for a QB to be as injury free and miss as few games as Drew has with us. After watching Brunell play for us I do not feel he could have lead us to a .500 record this past season should the worst have happened to Drew in week 1. He's a fine holder, but that's about it at this point in his career.

That being said, I still don't want Jake.

You left out the last two years of Jake's history. Want me to post that so folks know the whole story?
