Scouting Panthers' QB situation

Like a lot of people, I can't quite understand why Carolina quarterback Jake Delhomme seems to have suddenly fallen apart. That's why I called Jeremy Green of Scouts Inc. for a breakdown on what's going on with Delhomme.
"I don't think this was all of the sudden like a lot of people think," Green said. "Look back to last year, even before the playoff game with Arizona. He had a couple of pretty bad games and that Oakland game really sticks out."
So even if Delhomme's slump isn't that sudden, why is it happening?
"This was always a guy that was a very good game manager," Green said. "He wasn't ever going to beat you with his physical skills, and now his physical skills are deteriorating. He's not even managing the game well now. It's like the game is going too fast for him. You can see he's not comfortable in the pocket and he's not making good decisions. He's struggling with his confidence."
Has Delhomme just "lost it?" Green said that might be the case.
I feel bad for Jake, I really do. I think this is his last season as an NFL Quarterback. I however do not feel bad for the Panthers... may they lose and lose badly all year long.
