Jake Delhomme and the playoff meltdown harbinger

Posted by Jason Lisk on September 11, 2009

Jake Delhomme melted down big time in the playoff game last year, throwing five interceptions. Clearly, it's a harbinger of things to come for the 2009 season.

You might be interested to know (from our new play index) that the three quarterbacks closest in age to Delhomme to throw 4 or more interceptions in a playoff game were Brad Johnson (2001), Len Dawson (1968), and George Blanda (1961).

So what happened to these choke artists and their teams the next season? Well, Dawson was the winning quarterback in this game and Johnson was the winner in this one, while Blanda's Oilers lost in overtime in this one.

Harbinger indeed.
