Apparently, John Fox just doesn’t understand

That’s the only explanation I can come up with. After 7 of the worst possible performances by an NFL quarterback (dating back to last season’s playoffs) and no signs of improvement, Panthers head coach John Fox has said that he is sticking with starter Jake Delhomme because he “gives us the best chance to win”.

Ummm — is this some kind of joke? He can’t be serious can he? Delhomme gives the Panthers the best chance to win?!? Hello, McFly — HE’S THE REASON YOU’RE LOSING!!!

Someone please tell me that Fox isn’t this stupid. He actually thinks that Delhomme gives this team the best chance to win? What part of the 18 interceptions and 3 fumbles over the last 7 games has Fox missed? What part of the overthrown and underthrown passes leading to the interceptions that give opposing teams excellent field position can Fox possibly think aren’t Delhomme’s fault?

I really hope that Fox is just trying one last time to restore some confidence in his quarterback, giving him that one final try to get it together (because he will be facing the team he played when this horrid turn of events began). I hope this is just a “you better get your shit together quick, son — otherwise you’re out” decision, because if not the Panthers are no longer hopeful of a playoff spot, but rather guaranteed to sit at home in January while 6 other teams from the NFC compete for the Lombardi Trophy.

But we all know that this isn’t the one last time for the old gunslinger trying to make one last comeback game — this is a prime example that Fox is loyal to a fault, and he is bankrupting his team’s chances at making the playoffs because of his loyalty to one player.

I hope when Fox is sitting at home next season after the Panthers have hired a new head coach that he still feels his strong loyalty towards Delhomme, because that might be the only way he is able to forgive his old quarterback for costing him his job.

    With this kind of loyalty which we too have been subjected to in Chicago it almost seems that Fox wants to lose his job at the end of the year.This kind of move is the inevitable end to the John Fox era in Charlotte. Carolina Panther fans say hello to Bill Cowher. The best fit for a team without a quality starting QB.
