As our colleague Tom Curran points out during Carolina quarterback Jake Delhomme’s ongoing career disintegration, the Panthers quarterback has now thrown nine interceptions in his last 51 attempts.
Five came against the Cardinals in the 2008 playoffs. Four have come today against the Eagles.
The Panthers not only failed to address the quarterback position in the offseason, but they also gave Delhomme a long-term extension with $20 million in guaranteed money.
As we’ve said before (and will say again), their reaction to the January meltdown was to pretend it never happened.
Though a lot can change as the season goes on, it’s a horrendous start to the season for a team that is expected to again contend for a Super Bowl berth.
