DELHOMME GETS EXTENSION

For some reason, we’re suddenly reminded of the fact that people in certain cultures eat insects.

That thought sprang to mind because, apparently, certain NFL teams think it’s a good thing to generate six turnovers in a winnable home playoff game.

The Panthers have “rewarded” Jake Delhomme for his horrible playoff performance with a five-year contract extension.

The deal, according to Steve Reed of CarolinaGrowl.com, is worth $42.5 million, with $20 million guaranteed.

“He didn’t want to go into the season with this hanging over his head,” agent Rick Smith said. “It was a cordial negotiation throughout. We worked on it the last two weeks and it was finalized today.”

(Rick, shouldn’t you be shopping for bras with Andre Smith? Boom. Roasted.)

Anyway, Delhomme is 34. He missed most of the 2007 season with an elbow injury that required Billy Jack Tommy John surgery.

So he gets a five-year extension? With $20 million guaranteed? Really?

Of course, the deal is a steal in comparison to the likelihood that the Lions will invest $40 million guaranteed in a quarterback who might become Michigan’s version of Ryan Leaf. But it still seems like a lot of money for a guy whose career passer rating is in the mid-80s, and who has never really fulfilled the potential that he flashed when he led the Panthers to prominence in 2003.

The Panthers had a really good season last year,but they are also making some head scratching moves as well.

Delhomme is washed up.

Peppers is not happy.

For the second year in a row they've traded away their 1st round pick,again(to the 49ers).

The Eagles obtained Jason Peters with the Panthers 1st round pick this year.I'm happy
