Re: Poll: TJ Yates or Delhomme?
Delhomme is my vote. Not that it matters.
TJ is clearly a better runner. His arm may be a tad better. He is the more experienced QB in THIS offense. He's played more games this year. All of these factors favor TJ. At this stage, he has more physical ability than Jake as well.
Delhomme is a veteran who has seen everything, and played on the biggest stage an NFL QB can. I like his deep ball better in terms of accuracy. While he can't run, I like his ability to duck and sidestep better while keeping eyes downfield. Those are vet moves. He seemed to take more intermediate targets and WR targets than TJ, who is in love with the RB's and TE's 10 yds and in. TJ rarely throws between 12-25 yds. Delhomme will and I think that helps our running game. OTOH, he was clearly pretty rusty and his accuracy was off at times.
To me, it's almost a tie until you talk about experience and experience in the playoffs trumps physical ability every time.
Schaub is clearly better than both put together imho but Matt is on crutches and it is what it is. Neither of these guys at this stage in their respective career can take this team to the SB so it's probably a moot point.
