Meet Jake Delhomme, an American professional football player who plays for the Carolina Panthers of the National Football League. See a video and a biography of Delhomme here.

Jake got booed in the stadium while the Panthers were playing the Cardinals because of some ‘embarrassing’ moves he made in the field. He threw for a career high five interceptions. Some people are even speculating that his team would be drafting a new quarterback the next season.

“Delhomme just overthrew his receiver on fourth and five at the 40 in a fashion that could best be described as “embarrassing,” and a good number of Panthers fans — at least the ones not leaving the stadium — started booing him.”

As a biography, Jake Delhomme was born on January 10, 1975 in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana so his age is 34. He was born in a family of horse-keepers and liked to race them in his childhood. He played college ball for the University of Southwestern Louisiana and was ranked second among NCAA freshmen quarterbacks for passer efficiency rating. His college career saw him finishing as the all-time passing leader.

Delhomme was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the 1997 NFL Draft. He later went to play in NFL Europe for the Frankfurt Galaxy and saw success. After returning to America, Jake became a full-time third string quarterback for the Saints and led the overall passer ratings in the 2001 and 2002 preseasons. He was signed by the Panthers in the 2003 off-season.

Jake has been a World Bowl VII champion and was selected for the 2005 Pro Bowl. The 2004-05 season saw his career reaching its heights but his team didn’t make the playoffs because of injuries.

He is a pitch-man for Cajun fast food restaurant and has appeared in a lot of advertisements and public service announcements.
