Jake Delhomme Throws Hand Grenades

Jake Delhomme Throws Hand GrenadesTotal Pro Sports – If you watched the divisional playoff game between the Arizona Cardinals and Carolina Panthers last night,  Jake Delhomme the quarterback of the Carolina Panthers threw 5 interceptions, 1 lost fumble and had 1 touchdown.  Definitely one of the worst games in his career, the Panthers lost 33-13.

In late December former Panthers wider receiver Keyshawn Johnson said that his former teammate Jake Delhomme loved to throw hand grenades had he had no trust in him.

I don’t trust Jake [Delhomme]. I’ve played with him. He’s a good guy and everything, but in this situation he’ll try to do too much if they put the ball in his hands, try to throw hand grenades like in Green Bay. Keyshawn Johnson said

We agree with that analogy was perfect as it seemed Delhomme was aiming for the opposition most of the night.  We think that the Carolina Panthers forgot that they are not a passing football team, they completely disregarded the game plan. There was no way that prior to this game the idea was to have Delhomme throw the ball 34 times and have the offense run the ball 15 times.  It is a tough way to get your first home loss of the season, but the Panthers took the Cardinals lightly and were punished.

A big congratulations to the Arizona Cardinals and especially that Cardinals defense that kept the Panthers ground game in check all night long. They had the Panthers second guessing themselves from start to finish, a big reason was that front four for Arizona, which kept Jake Delhomme thinking about the pass rush all game. The Cardinals offense was pretty good, thanks to Mr. Larry Fitzgarald, the wide receiver made numerous big catches and finished the day with 8 receptions for 166 yards and 1 touchdown.

Are the Arizona Cardinals this years Cinderella story?  I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
