Jake, have a seat!

I'm from Atlanta and yes I support my team...but I am truly a Carolina Panther fan. and up until the end of last season, I was also a Jake Delhomme fan.

The Panthers took on the Eagles today. Well...kind of. It was more like a blow out.

And yes, I'm blaming the quarterback!

Today after one of the WORST performances ever, Jake was benched.

I was yelling, "It's about time," after more than 10 turnovers in the last two games (I won't even talk pre-season). Delhomme, threw four interceptions and lost a fumble in less than three quarters Sunday against Philadelphia.

Finally, John Fox pulled him for backup Josh McCown, who received a loud cheer from the crowd, after Delhomme's fourth pick.

I pulled the stats and Delhomme was 7 of 17 for 73 yards..AND his fumble was returned for a touchdown.

But wait, this has been going on for a minute. If you recall in January's playoff game against Arizona, Delhomme threw five interceptions and lost a fumble. Of course, they lost that game 33-13 .

But that's not what gets me... this guy is working off of a five-year, $42.5 million contract extension from April that included $20 million in guaranteed money.

Yeah. Guaranteed. Fumble or not.

A mess.

Have a seat Jake. I'm pissed.
