Carolina Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme is having the worst season of his career, throwing only eight touchdowns and 18 interceptions. He is tied with Lions QB Matthew Stafford for second most in the league behind Bears QB Jay Cutler (20). After Delhomme's four interceptions, and a 12.7 rating performance against the Jets, he is the NFL's lowest-ranked starting quarterback.

Coach John Fox confirmed that Delhomme has a broken finger in his right (throwing) hand and that Matt Moore may start next game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Let's keep in mind that Moore was 2-1 as a starter in the last three games of the 2007 season.

Delhomme may be at the end of his 10-year career after this season. We all know that Jake (Delhomme) has not been the same quarterback since the 2003 season, which was his first year with the Panthers. Although the fans love Jake, but it's time for Carolina to replace him.

Fans are demanding that Matt Moore should be the starting quarterback. He has better arm strength, accuracy, speed, and most importantly, better decision making. Not only will Matt (Moore) help improve the Carolina's dysfunctional passing offense, he will give this team the best chance to win.
