Not exactly screaming for Delhomme to get the nod over Leinart.
i disagree. He basically was checkdown charlie the whole time he was in (remind you of anyone??). On the TD pass,He didn't even look like he wanted to throw it b/c, if i remember it correctly, he kind of half pump-faked it before lobing it up there...In all seriousness it probably should've been picked if not for Dreesen.

He just looked tentative. And as i said in my previous post, for a guy to look like that having been in the offense now for a year...that doesn't bode well for him. That excuse can be used for TJ b/c he's a rook seeing his 1st NFL action ever...but it doesn't work for a guy 4-5 years in who was once a starter in this league.

If you can, go back & watch ML & TJ's performance in the jags game. Pay close attention to when TJ 1st gets in the game right before the half & before Kubes shut it down. There's a stark difference in how each of those guys looked. TJ came in & looked way more comfy & in general threw the ball with conviction & when he was asked to throw it. Delhomme looked the same way when he came in behind TJ in the titans game. ML just doesn't have it imo.
