Default Re: Poll: TJ Yates or Delhomme?

Delhomme IMO. TJ has looked bad the past few weeks. Delhomme has had playoff experience, and didn't look too shabby yesterday.

Then again, TJ looked pretty good himself yesterday on that fist drive, so you never know.

TJ could surprise us in the playoffs.

Delhomme was sitting on his couch, watching football on Sunday like the rest of us before Rick Smith gave him a call. We know what we're going to get with him, and it's mediocrity.

I agree with this. If we can keep him I think he'd be a great replacement for Schaub down the road. Going into the Superbowl this year would be great, but I'd like to keep building on the strong base we are building, and become a consistent contender for many years to come.

I could care less that Delhomme won't be here next year. I'm concerned about the here and now, as in this Saturday's playoff game.

That's what people keep saying, but how is Delhomme better right now? He was unemployed until we signed him. He was unemployed for a reason, and it probably wasn't because he's very good.

Delhomme played well against a bad Titans team. Great. Have you seen his resume? It isn't exactly the best.

TJ could play very well for us during the playoffs, even better than Delhomme.

TJ Yates family and friends must have registered and all voted. It's now 51-23. Really weird to see a poll that was that so close get so lopsided that fast.

Default Re: Poll: TJ Yates or Delhomme?

TJ Yates.

If it's any consolation Yates has shown progress in his completion precentage with each start: 48%, 59.1%, 63.3%, 81.3%, 100%.

After his game with 2 picks he has not thrown another pick. Of course he hasn't thrown a TD either.

If anything, it's super commendable that the Yates shows a shit ton of confidence.

Either he'll do it or he won't.

Yates' 82.6 QB rating puts him only over Flacco & Dalton out of the QBs starting in the playoffs. That's not good. But it puts him over 18 other starters in the NFL.

I dunno, I'm gonna say Yates. And that's just based on the fact he's been here longer and should know more of the offense. He was 4 for 4 yesterday. ...none very long though...

I really liked the way Delhomme moved the team... but his accuracy was a tad off a couple of times that could have turned out uuug-leeee

IMO, THIS.

If TJ had a few years on him in the league it would easily be TJ (most likely) but right now the line is so thin choosing between the two, I wish Schaub were an option.

Regardless of who is out there I will be supporting my team over a specific QB.

Post Re: Poll: TJ Yates or Delhomme?

I think I would go with TJ....he won in Cincy and has faced that team already once.
He had a great opening drive this past Sunday. I think he is improving.
Delhomme did some good things...but had a issue with ball security.
Delhomme did have some down field throws.
If you listened to his post game comments you heard the word learn....still learning......learned so much in the past month....
So he is still trying to get aqainted with this offense.

I just think you go with TJ right now. However, if TJ struggles on Saturday I have no problem with bringing in Delhomme if things go bad for TJ.

Go with TJ he knows the offense better and Andre is back so it's ride or die and if he falters early then we can go with the Vet in a pinch.
