Foxism of the day: 11/30/09

John Fox is doing what he does best, making absolutely no sense.

Rotoworld: (emphasis mine)

Panthers coach John Fox admitted he thought about benching Jake Delhomme in favor of Matt Moore during Sunday’s loss to the Jets. “There was discussion about it,” said Fox. “But overall, we felt like Jake was the best guy to be in there for what we were doing in this game, and that’s what we did.” Really? Delhomme posted a 12.7 passer rating and Fox is under pressure to make a switch for Sunday’s game against the Bucs.

So Jake was the best guy to be in there for what we were doing in this game? Actually, when you sit down and think about it, he’s right. Jake is the best guy to put in there when you want to pull off a choke job, which is what the Panthers did yesterday when they blew a totally winnable game against the Jets.

If Fox sticks with his boy Jake against the Bucs next Sunday instead of going with Matt Moore (or A.J. Feeley), I can’t wait to hear his explanation. I can’t see any logical reason to explain why a quarterback who has led his team to a 4-7 record and out of the playoff race, has 18 interceptions, and is coming off a game with a 12.7 passer-rating should get any more action on the field.

Get with the program Fox: it’s time to put in Matt Moore, and it’s time to give Jake the old yeller treatment — Jake doesn’t have it any more, so please put him out of his misery.

If you won’t do it for Jake, then please do it for the fans.
