The Carolina Panthers’ quarterback, Jake Delhomme, is taking the heat from Queen City footballers after his dismal performance against the Arizona Cardinals cost the team its chance to be in this year’s Super Bowl:
Carolina Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme said he wouldn’t have thought in a “million years” he’d throw five interceptions in Saturday’s 33-13 playoff loss against the Arizona Cardinals.
Delhomme was right. He seldom plays that poorly. His 39.1 passer rating against the Cardinals was far below his career playoff mark of 95.0 and his overall career rating of 85.1.
But his performance again stoked the feelings of many Panthers fans that Delhomme is holding the team back from its ultimate goal: a Super Bowl championship.
I’m not much of a sports guy. I’m sure that isn’t hard to see.
But when it comes to Wake Forest and UNC, I at least take pride in knowing they’re doing well. I had long wanted to attend Wake Forest University, am a member of Wake Forest Baptist Church and Wake Forest is in my hometown of Winston-Salem. And any North Carolinian who says they don’t like UNC really can’t be called a North Carolinian in my opinion.
So, when UNC and Wake Forest actually have to compete against each other in a game, I just wait to the end to choose who I should have been rooting for from the beginning.
GO WAKE FOREST!
The two schools played each other last night in front of what The Winston-Salem Journal says was the largest crowd ever at Winston’s Lawrence Joel Memorial Coliseum. The final score was 92 to 89. So close, Tar Heels, so close.
