Letting Delhomme go was a mistake. However, at some point a coach needs to resolve the QB battle one way or the other. QB is one of those positions where competition can be a mixed blessing. WRs and OL need to work with the same guy most of the time - in order build timing and confidence. Switching back and forth can be a problem.

That said, I imagine that WhoDat believe that Delhomme would have won the battle and we\'d have Delhomme instead of Brooks. Right now, I\'m indifferent to that. Last year I may have said something different.

Danno, good assessment.

Having him in completely changes the look of the D and has helped improve their run defense dramitically! LOL

How many people would like to still have Delhomme and/or O\'Sullivan right now?

Imagine that QB battle! Brooks, Delhomme, Bouman, O\'Sullivan.
Kinda like 2000, when we had Jeff Blake, Brooks, Delhomme and Bulger.
Why can\'t we have the same eye for DT\'s or LB\'s?

I will admit I\'d love to have JT and Jake right now to battle Brooks. I don\'t think Boumann and Klingsbury are gonna push him very hard.

But having JT would mean no McKenzie.

I don\'t think our receivers complimented O\'Sullivan, his arm wasn\'t as strong as some others we\'ve had here.
I do have the occasional dream at night of Bulger dropping bombs to Horn and Stallworth, though.

haslett just knew that brooks would be his savior and make him an in house name but it flopped on hi... the reason they did not play delhomme when brooks was hurt a couple years ago is because they didnt want there to be a QB controversy and so he let us drift out of the playoffs buy playing a hurt brooks.... haslett put all his egss in his basket with brooks, and his eggs are now scrambled...

im not so sure of bulger personally. i dont think he is all thatv geart. maybe thats just me. i think hes a starter in this league but put him on this team imm not sure he does much better then brooks.
to judge im not sure about has with all his eggs in one basket. im not disagreeing im just not sure. but i would say it bothered me then and it bothers me now that we should have replaced brooks the last couple of games that season because he was hurt. and why he didnt i dont know. so maybe you are right. he put all his eggs in one basket

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?

Bulger is in a bad situation- his o-line gives him about as much protection as a condom from a truck stop quarter machine, and his coach forgot that he has a future hall of famer in the backfield.

6 Pages! Woo! Let\'s see if we can\'t keep this going until the end of the season.

That said, I imagine that WhoDat believe that Delhomme would have won the battle and we\'d have Delhomme instead of Brooks.
Assume away... I doubt anyone would have beaten AB out this year, not with this coaching staff. Even with a new one AB SHOULD win - the guy\'s been a starter for almost 5 years now. But if we had Delhomme, O\'Sullivan, Bulger, Blake, etc. right now we\'d have options. Bouman and Klingsbury or whoever don\'t give us a lot of options.
