Re: Jake Delhomme to Visit Saints

Why?? Didn't we already go through this once before?! It didn't work out the first time, what makes them think it will work out this time?!

I think the reason it didn't work out before is because Jim Hasbeen had a man crush on AB but having said that I thin k Jake has been rode hard by the Panthers and hung up wet. Not a good move . . .

Re: Jake Delhomme to Visit Saints

Scenario:

Drew slams his hand into a helmet in the first game of the season and bruises his pinky. Jake comes in for ONE play, throws a 5 yard slant and completes it for a first down. Drew comes back in on the next play and throws a bomb downfield to Devry who bobbles the pass allowing it to be intercepted.

Sean doesn't pull Drew even though he continues to have a bad game by his standards. The following Monday, the media and Saints fandom are ripe with "Give Jake the Ball" freenzy and conspiracy theories about about how Sean won't give Jake a fair shot and that based on his 1-completion performance he should become the starter until (at least) Drew can once again use his pinky finger to pick his nose pain free.

Oh GOD PLEASE NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

Re: Jake Delhomme to Visit Saints

Saintfan...that is a scary, scary scenerio. The one thing you don't want is Brees looking over his shoulder. You always see quarterbacks go down hill fast when that happens.

Re: Jake Delhomme to Visit Saints

I am NOT a Brooks fan, let me make that perfectly clear. What I will say, is that he QB'd us
to our first winning season, with a play off win. He earned his starting position, when he did that.
Now, after his second or third season of idiocy, YES, he should have been benched, but by then
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.

What's popular is not always right, and what's right is not always popular.....

Re: Jake Delhomme to Visit Saints

How did it not work out? Jake threw like 3 passes for us because Haslett was tied at the hip with SMILEY.

I for one think he's be a better option in a pinch than Brunell who is sure to being drawing social security soon.

You say that right up until the point Brees goes down. Then it becomes the most pressing of needs. I think we all watched Game 16 this year against Carolina when Brunell was putting Meachem's life at risk everytime he led him into a defender and airmailed the ball 10 feet over his head.

Blogs Home NFL Nation NFC East NFC North NFC South NFC West AFC East AFC North AFC South AFC West Delhomme to visit Saints -- again
March, 11, 2010 Mar 114:50PM ETEmail Print Share By Pat YasinskasTAMPA, Fla. – I’m on my way to see a New York Yankees spring training game (weather permitting) tonight. But I had to pull over to give you a little update on Jake Delhomme.

Thanks to my great friend Johnny G. Lyon, who owns the Proud Lion Pub and Restaurant in North Tampa and also is a huge Bucs’ fan, for providing the wireless internet hookup.

The former Carolina quarterback visited the Cleveland Browns on Thursday, but, as we’ve been saying all along, there remains a real possibility of him staying in the NFC South. There are reports Delhomme’s next visit will be to the New Orleans Saints.

We’ve even heard from a reliable source in New Orleans that coach Sean Payton was heard publicly praising Delhomme earlier today.

This one makes sense on a lot of levels. Payton tried to get Delhomme to Dallas when he was an assistant coach there. He also currently is in the market for a backup quarterback because Mark Brunell is a free agent or could be heading for retirement. Delhomme would be an upgrade over Brunell because he’s younger. He also would be a good extra pair of eyes for starter Drew Brees and is a good guy to have in the locker room.

Then, there’s Delhomme’s history. He grew up in Louisiana and loves it there. He began his career with the Saints and was a fan favorite. That was back at a time when former coach Jim Haslett was obligated to “franchise’’ quarterback Aaron Brooks because of his draft status. Delhomme never had a shot to compete with Brooks.

In the current climate, Delhomme also would be a backup because nobody’s going to take Brees’ job anytime soon. But Delhomme’s at a point in his life and his career where he can be content with that. Plus, he’d be back home.

We’ll see what happens over the next few days.
