    Delhomme done in Carolina

    Only a matter of time...backup?? Although I'm sure he is looking to start somewhere.

    Posted by Mike Florio on March 4, 2010 10:13 PM ET
    After a horrendous performance in the 2008 divisional playoffs followed by an even more horrendous performance in the 2009 season, plenty of media types were proclaiming (we won't name names -- not because we've decided not to be prickish but because we can't recall who they were, specifically) that quarterback Jake Delhomme definitely would be back.

    We didn't buy it.

    And we're glad we didn't.

    Jay Glazer of FOX reports that the Panthers have cut Delhomme.

    His tenure in Carolina ends with a whimper, via a career-low passer rating of 59.4.

    He'll possibly land elsewhere as a backup, maybe with the Saints, who play in his home state.

    Not for the Jets.

    I'd think he'd be a good backup.

    He's never recovered from losing the SB to the Pats.

    Fox and or gm should have been fired for giving him a huge fat extension before last year. He has been terrible for a few years now and massively mistake prone. They essentially wasted a year by keeping him. Horrible horrible QB.

    Ugh, he's been awful. They gotta eat a big chunk of cash from his contract but good move by them

    The Saints will release Brunell and bring Delhomme back to NO.

    I don't even know if I'd want Delhomme as a backup.

    The guy just looks done in every way possible. If Sanchez were to go down for a few games, I honestly think I'd have more faith in a guy like Ainge stepping in than I would Delhomme.

    There are a hundred QB's including half the starters in the CFL I'd want over close your eyes and throw picks Del homme.

    eww, no.

    he's awful.

    he's like a non-charismatic version of Pennington.
