Good Jake shows up

Shortly after "Bad Jake" underthrew a pass to Muhsin Muhammad, "Good Jake" has now reappeared for the Panthers, as the Panthers take a 7-0 lead into halftime.

"Good Jake" led the Panthers on a very impressive, 90-yard, 8-play drive in 1:45 deep in the second quarter. The march ended with a 25-yard pass to TE Dante Rosario from QB Jake Delhomme, giving Carolina that 7-0 lead.

Oddly enough, right before that Delhomme hit Rosario on an almost identical play, also for 25 yards. They were two of Delhomme's best throws of the game, as he had to fit each ball in over a defender but not overthrow it and did so beautifully.

Meanwhile, the Panthers defense has had an exemplary first half, holding Dallas to zero points. The Cowboys have been booed off-and-on during their last 2 drives, as the fans at opulemt Cowboys Stadium have started to grow frustrated. The Panthers have been very effective getting pressure on Tony Romo, in part due to LB blitzes.

Of course, there's still a whole lot of football to play, but the Cowboys just got resoundingly booed going into the locker room at halftime. These fans paid a lot of money for those seats, and they're pretty angry right now.

Halftime score: Carolina 7, Dallas 0.

Delhomme is a better QB than Tony Romo. Talk amongst yourselves.....

You can't wholly blame that pass on Jake. Moose didn't put much effort into that one.

My only gripe is that Gamble sucks, he quits on tackles, he didn't even go near Witten when he caught a pass, he sucks.

Jake is feeling it and the Panther Defense has been kicking some major Cowboy butt ....

Have LOVED LOVED LOVED, watching the D bring it in the 1st half ...

Heres hoping they maintain it for the next two quarters....

Moose made not attempt at that pass and the defense is NOT playing well.

Good Scott never shows up. Scott sucks. if he had any talent he would write for something other than a dying rage of a newspaper.

Kev said...

That was a great defensive stand!

LOL, I will give you that, she's certainly the best looking poster on the thread! No offense intended Jennifer, just stating the fact. ;-)

John said...

More than $1 million per game and exactly how many tackles, sacks or even hurries does Peppers have so far?

You want to be P.O.d? THAT'S where to direct it!

Jennifer said...

Dam! whats with all the Mr. Scott haters???

Come on Man....save your love for Pep and Jake....remember what I said in the preseason....those two are the only ones we get to talk about here <:-)...

Ummmm Kev....back to the game lol, and thanks John, but win or lose, Im seriously a diehard fan....

Prefer to win though :-)

WTF is Charles Godfrey getting in a guy's face for after the guy ran over him after a 10 yard game. And Rosario can have all the yards he wants but not catching the easy pass to start the second half sets the tone.

Why did the team leave Peppers in Charlotte? Oh wait....there he is on his can. My bad.

John said...

Baker holds the ball way too long!

Jake's playing well, but he's not getting much help.

Kev said...

His teammates are not helping him tonight.

Jenn, I'll still pull for them W or L but you if we are not winning then something has to change.

The D looks alright, the O looks alright but stupid plays are killing us.

John said...

Not questioning your fan status Jennifer... I'm sure you're a serious fan... you've got company there!

John said...

They just commented that Pep has just ONE tackle into the 4th quarter... WHEN DOES HE START TO EARN HIS MONEY? Right now he looks like AIG!

John said...

9 mins. left, Panthers on defense and Peppers is on the sidelines? It's time to kick him loose. He took the money and isn't willing to perform. I'm sorry Jen, it's time for him to go.
