Default Delhomme or Weinke?

Who would you rather face? - I know the Panthers are in a funk right now - but I would rather face Delhomme than Weinke - the dude threw for 423 yards yesterday and I don't trust our Dbs - I think we stand a better chance against a battered Delhomme...

I still would rather face Weinke. Yea he threw for a ton of yards yesterday. But didn't he also throw 3 picks? So Weinke might be more prone to turn overs. But Delhomme has turned the ball over to this year. Hey get enough pressure on the QB and doesn't matter which one you face.

Probably Weinke, but it may not matter that much since on the road our secondary has made a lot of QBs look like the second coming of Steve Young/Dan Marino this season. Maybe the secondary steps up this weekend against Smith and Keyshawn, but I have my doubts.

A related and more important question for the Steelers future is which two CBs out of the trio of Townsend, McFadden and Taylor should start on Sunday. Since I assume Taylor is not going to be cut I would like to see him start again at some point this year so he does not carry baggage from being benched with him into the offseason. And since I think he will be starting next season I would like to see McFadden continue to start.

Yes, I think it's time to let Ike try and get his confidence back.

Weinke!??? If I didn't know any better (which I probably don't) I'd assume this is a trick question.

Considering the sub-par performance of our secondary this year, either one could probably put up huge numbers. I think the key lies in blitzing-early and often.

Weinke...He had 60 pass attempts, of course he was gonna get up there in yards.

Weinke has something like a 1-15 record when he starts for the Panthers.

As unpredictable as Delhomme can be, he is better than that.
