    Kind of surprised by this actually. I was thinking they liked Jeff Garcia. AT least Delhomme has some good experience in the league and maybe with a talented team could play well if he had to, which i hope he doesn't.

    Agreed!

    Actually Yates just needs to play as good as Colt McCoy did last year.

    OMG.

    Barf.

    I mean this is the guy I felt would be about 4th or 5th on the list out of the other guys we've tried out. Did he even make last week's tryouts, or did he come in for this one and walk away the victor???

    LOL.

    There is not a team with enough talent to make Delhomme look good or even decent.

    I figured this would happen.

    I kept hearing Garcia, but I figured that if they liked him that much they'd have just signed him seeing that he worked out for them not too long ago.

    Also, they were talking about Delhomme on the radio this morning like he had the inside track or something...

    I'm not shocked about this...

    Maybe he was brought in for his experience and being a good locker room guy.

    If we was brought in to play, were screwed.

    I just remember his last season filled with hesitancy to throw, and half-hearted zip and control on his passes because he looked like he STILL was unsure when the ball left his hand.

    The NFL is a QB-starved league. No wonder Goodell has been making new rules to protect QBs. They're in short supply and high demand.

    listening to espn right now they're saying that delhomme is a great locker room presence with superbowl experience, that he'd do a ton of good for yates. if we were signing someone expected to play, i'd definitely prefer garcia. if we're looking more for a veteran to be on the practice field with yates, delhomme may be the better choice.

    I have hardly payed any attention to him since 04 or 05 but hopefully he won't have to see the field.

    I disagree. Any team with at least one healthy QB playing in front of him will make him look good or at least decent.

    He can hold that clip board with the best of them.
