View Full Version : Well, I think the "Make Carr Starter Over Delhomme" bandwagon is now at an end..

Today I would have felt more comfortable with Weinke playing then Carr <_<. Well, anyway, after today's disappointment of a game. Do you think the Panthers are going to try anything different come next Sunday?

i think the panthers will have a winning streak no longer than 1 and a losing streak no longer than 1. the panthers are the most inconsistent team in the league. they play down to bad competition and tease you when they play well against good teams. they are so frustrating

I think next sunday will be much the same. If Jake is healthy he'll start, if not Carr will. I just think Carr had a bad day, well a REALLY bad day. He has alot of talent and energy, but he's not as familar with the system as Jake is. I never was part of the bandwagon to play Carr over Jake.
The announcer's were saying that Jake may have to have surgery on his elbow, they don't know when that will have to happen, but I'd be comfortable with Carr in the line up.
I'm still pissed that we stopped running the football again. Foster was averaging over 4 yards a carry. You keep running it when you are averaging that much, unless they move guys up to stop the run. They never had to do that, we just stopped running and started passing, and never in the middle of the field which was open all day.
This is why I have perscriptions of Valium, and Colozapiam!

Yeah I figured that Carr would do better than he did today, that was really bothersome. Over at the Observer site everybody is calling for Fox to be fired. I think something has to be done but what? I have no real practical idea.... :g:

Since Carr was having an awful day, I was hoping I'd get to see Matt Moore play for a few minutes or so. V_V
NO ONE KNOWS ANYTHING ABOUT HIM, IT'D BE FUN TO WATCH HIM THROW A PASS OR 2! :P

Here's my two cents:
First off, I don't have a practical idea of what to do either. If I was Jerry Richardson, I'd go into the locker room with a piece of paper and write down anybodies name who didn't want to be there, and have a damn fire sale. Just start over.
Second, I'd go up to Kris Jenkins, with a big ole "C" wristband and say "You are the captain of this team. Thanks for actually showing some heart and honesty".
Third, I'd go up to John Fox and say "You are now the defensive coordinator and head coach. You will call all the defensive plays and come up with the defensive schemes, as well as the head coach duties. If you don't turn this team around by the end of the year, you are fired."
Fortunately for the Carolinas, i'm not Jerry Richardson. So that will never happen. The only thing I can do is drop Peppers from my fantasy team and ceremoniously put Jenkins in his place for a week, video tape it, and send it in to the Panthers.
77 For MVP

Yeah, it's really almost as if Peppers doesn't even exist out there. The defense has some serious issues to address.
Also, I think a lot of the reason why we might have started throwing instead of running was because of penalties pushing us back all the time.

Yesterday was the first Panthers game I ever went. I was excited to the Panthers tear up the Bucs. Coming in to the game I knew there was a 50/50 chance we were gonna lose, but damn I never thought we would get raped like that. Though Carr wasn't very impressive, neither were the recievers. They were dropping passes like they have since the start of the season. We should have kept running the ball.
The defense as awful. The only good thing they did all day was the fumble caused by Gamble and the goal line stand we had. Besides that they were horrible. The middle of the field was always open for the Bucs. They would complete passes over the middle and there wouldn't be a defender within 7-8 yards of the reciever. They were also letting the Bucs 2nd and 3rd string running back get yardage.
On a side note. That first down Carr got by jumping and flipping over 2 Buc defenders was nice.

Carr didn't look good but he didn't get any help at all from his receivers, there were a ton of drops.

It was just a horrible game to sit through..... :g:

No doubt about that.

I was reading that the Panthers plan to sign another back up since Jake is going to be out for a while...
Any chance for a Weinke comeback? :P

CHARLOTTE — Carolina Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme said he’s still hoping rehab, not surgery, will cure his strained right elbow.
Delhomme isn’t feeling any pain, but added that’s probably because he hasn’t attempted to throw a football since the injury occurred a week ago Sunday in a 27-20 win over the Atlanta Falcons. He’s waiting for the go ahead from trainer Ryan Vermillion to begin throwing and even expressed some outside optimism he might get that chance later this week.
“Usually when somebody has an injury or a strain or something, it kind of hurts,” Delhomme said. “I feel pretty good. Now, I’m not in the act of throwing the ball. And I’m not talking about soft tossing with somebody. You’ve got to throw in this game, and you throw from all different angles. I’m anxious to start chucking it around a little bit.”
The Panthers haven’t brought in any free agent quarterbacks at this point — which is a good sign — and Delhomme still hasn’t ruled out playing this Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.
“I hope so,” Delhomme said of playing in the Superdome, one of his favorite venues. “See those tapes (of the Saints) sitting in my locker? They’re going to be looked at. We’ll see.”
Of course if the rehab doesn’t go well, then surgery remains an option — either later this season or in the offseason. But Delhomme called it a “last resort.”
If he opts for surgery it would definitely mean the end of his season, he said. That would be a tough one for the Panthers to swallow. Delhomme is off to one of his best starts of his career. He owns the league’s third-best quarterback rating and is 2-1 as the team’s starter.
“I’ve had a bunch of phone calls saying something about a surgery,” Delhomme said. “Maybe that could happen down the line. I don’t know, and that’s the God’s honest truth. We don’t know yet. To say it’s a possibility, yes it’s possible. But it’s not in my mind right now. That’s where we’re at.”
Delhomme refused to discuss what elbow surgery would entail. He also refused to speculate on when, if at all, he would give up on rehab and opt for surgery.
He'll be back next week, or the following. If he isn't then we should have that fire sale.
As for Peppers not playing well, The annoucers were saying he had been sick all summer? First I heard of it and I really think I'd have seen something with all of the searches I do on Tarheels and what not. He's most definetly not the Peppers that everybody was afraid of in the ACC.
