  1. “…a meltdown of Jake Delhomme proportions…”
    The NFL will always be “what have you done for me lately” league. Delhomme was a pretty good QB for the Panthers, leading them to 53 wins in his career (3 seasons of 10 or more wins), one Pro Bowl and a Super Bowl. And what does the Growl write- that Moore has to avoid a meltdown of Delhomme proportions to be the starter. Nice- they go to the PFT school of writing.
    If Moore can have a career like Jake’s Carolina will be happy.

  2. How about Prop Joe?
    — Gotta love it when you can get a reference from The Wire in an article…
