Biggest Homer Final: Jake Delhomme is an amazing post-season QB vs. John Clay to Iowa
 
It's here. Is Jake Delhomme an amazing post-season QB? Is John Clay committing to Iowa? SWDC has voted these two as the biggest homers on the board. Two men enter, only one leaves with the prestigious championship of the first ever SWDC Biggest Homer vote!

In the blue and white corner...



There are a ton of reasons why the Panthers might lose, but dammit, Jake Delhomme won't be one of them. By God, he's an amazing post-season QB. He can't be stopped. Julius Peppers is due for an 83 sack season some time soon. Panthers or crack? I say Panthers. SWDC, is he the biggest homer?



In the gold and black corner...



He's made some really brutal predictions before. The John Clay fiasco was his finest hour, but let us not forget all of the dandies in the recruiting thread(s). Iowa will go 13-0 and win the national title this year, dammit! Mitch King will be a day 1 pick. You could make a pretty solid team with players that Told said would go to Iowa and didn't. SWDC, is he the biggest homer?



It's on...

I almost picked Blindsite based on the Delhomme quote alone...but I can't vote against Told in a homer contest.

Hard to vote against John Clay.

This is tough for me.

On one hand, every week this past football season, if just one poster made a comment about how Deangelo Williams might not be better than Burner Turner, or that the Panthers are going to lose on a last second field goal after playing an amazing game, Blindsite would be there within seconds to tell you how much of a failure at life you are in a post longer than most novels.

However, I simply cannot overlook my two years of Iowa bashing and ridicule I've had to endure because of one man's incredible efforts. It's honestly gotten to the point where I don't even try to defend these attacks. Told has broken my spirit. :(

Told is so homerific

Mr. Hero 05-29-2009 12:51 PM

That Jake Delhomme debate is right up there with "best secondary this decade" for homeristic fail. So I think this has to go to BS because he was more homerific at his peak and doesn't exactly lack in quantity either.

TACKLE 05-29-2009 12:57 PM

I think what sets Told apart is the fact that he completely lacks self awareness. He geniunely believes he is always right. And when it comes to Iowa, he is almost always wrong.

CJSchneider 05-29-2009 01:12 PM

I can't let ULM win anything. Told wins my vote.

tjsunstein 05-29-2009 01:49 PM

Blindsite got my vote.

When Blindsite actually takes off those homer goggles (which is not often at all), he's not really that bad a poster and can sometimes post some interesting thoughts on the league. Still, he deserves to be in this position because he was almost unbearable to read at a few points during last season. I hope the Panthers go back to mediocrity so I don't have to go through that again.

Borat 05-29-2009 01:59 PM

Voted Blindsite. I don't even know who Told is/was.

Too late ...

If the collective wisdom of this board has deemed that Told is a bigger homer than TacticaLion, he has my vote.

Same here, no clue who the other guy is.

CashmoneyDrew 05-29-2009 02:50 PM

You'll mainly see Told in the college football forum, or hyping up Iowa prospects in the draft forum.

Borat 05-29-2009 03:06 PM

I mainly see him in people's sigs. :)

CC.SD 05-29-2009 03:09 PM

I know I have needled Blindsite for being a homer before, but I really feel like he is a victim of perhaps the worst timing in the history of SWDC with the Delhomme comment. I don't think anyone expected the world, but I doubt they were many who predicted Delhomme would perform a stunningly accurate impression of a washed up QB against AZ.

Mr. Hero 05-29-2009 03:28 PM

Timing is everything though. Anyone can just blindly hype their boys, it takes a special level of homer to achieve the epicness of Blindsite's Delhomme fail.

That's true I guess this pot had been boiling for a while.

BlindSite 05-29-2009 04:16 PM

Awesome, everyone forgets that until the Cardinals game Delhomme was in the top 5 for winning % and for QB rating in the post season.

Haters gon hate

Sorry man. That's why they call it epic fail.

Dude, half the time I make jokes at my own expense in the NFL forum and openly call myself a homer every now and then.

After a while statements taken out of context are a big pain in the ass **** gets old that's all.

MetSox17 05-29-2009 04:26 PM

Stop it guys. Blindsite cries when you call him a homer.
