Jake Delhomme will start at quarterback against the Falcons this week, but the Panthers have added A.J. Feeley to the mix. Delhomme has committed 11 turnovers over the team's last two games, dating back to their playoff loss to the Cardinals. "It's like Tiger Woods doesn't win every tournament. [Roger] Federer doesn't win every tournament," Carolina coach John Fox said. "There's a lot of people out there that practice and get paid, too." Feeley, who was cut by the Eagles earlier this month, agreed to a contract with the Panthers and was expected to arrive in town on Monday night. He'll replace Josh McCown, who the team placed on the IR.
