For those who have been hoping for a new starting quarterback for the Carolina Panthers, they may be satisfied to know that Jake Delhomme may finally have to give up his starting job, after throwing a career-high 18 interceptions in 11 games.
During Wednesday’s practice, the Panthers worked out in indoor facility because of heavy rain, and Delhomme was not among them. The quarterback practicing with the first team was Matt Moore, and Delhomme, although still wearing his Panthers jersey, only needed to take care of his throwing hand, which was wrapped with index and middle fingers being taped together.
Despite playing the worst season of his career, Delhomme managed to keep his starting job as Coach John Fox insisted. Although the quarterback tried to hide his hand and would not rule himself out Sunday, all signs showed that Moore will start for the first time since 2007.
