I think you do what is going to give your team the best chance to win. If he was injured to a degree where it would hurt his team more than he did the right thing by sitting out. Not everyone is Farve and honestly Farve should have sat some games out after injury.
Too many people wanted Delhomme period, long before Brooks' injury, during it, and after it. Jake even said at the time that he had the same injury in college and that he could still throw. We lost that game because of dropped passes, not because of Aaron's injury. The spin machine really took over...such a shame.

In that case, you've got a QB who's leading an offense to damn near 30 a game on average with an injury that didn't prevent him from throwing the ball, or a backup that had been cut from every team he'd ever been on who became a local hero because of his accent and one 5 yard slant pass for a first down.

Yes, I know. It's water under the bridge, but it's a sore spot with me.

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!

Yeah, Mathius, there are stupid fans, who are not really fans, following all clubs.
Thing is ,no one makes the most out of real fans and those who would not stoop to this kind of madness, stupidity,just bad behavior.

I know it is water under the bridge. What I dont' get is all of the always negative posts against Brooks. YES, he was a so-so qb. Really,the Saints have not had a really good qb and everything else working except for DB .
Brooks, Brooks, what about Dave Wilson, Richard Todd, John Fourcade?
Kenny Stabler was on his very last years with his best years over. Bobbby Hebert and Archie Manning were okay. YES, they are close to N.O.(Cut Off ,LA and Mississippi), but taking the romance and likability away , they were just okay qb's.
