Same ol' Brooks... ?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; As long as I'm at it, you know who else fumbled and lost the ball? I'll give you a hint; his initials are J.D. Jack Danials? Yeah, but he was drunk!...

Ah, Uncle Jack. He's always good for a laugh (or a fumble apparently) at family functions.

Sure Brooks had that one fumble, but if you look at what else he did, you have to be excited. First you must consider who he was playing against; Carolina's defense is arguably one of the best in the business. Second, I watched all game while Aaron Brooks felt the pressure coming from up the middle and off the corners, and I watched AB step left, step right or step up (NO BACKING UP), and avoid the rush. He scrambled for 32 yards (including a 22 yard run to help us get into range for the GW field goal). He wasn't sacked once this game, and that's against guys like Julius Peppers, Mike Rucker, Brenston Buckner, and Kris Jenkins for part of the game (arguably the best front four in the game). I was also impressed with his accuracy. He went 18-24, with no interceptions, and on all of his passes he stepped up into the pocket and threw lasers all over the field. I was very impressed with his play, and the play of the rest of the team. GEAUX SAINTS!

Agreed. Here is my one problem with the fumble though, noone touched him, and it was yet again in the red zone, meaning we lose the chance at point. Then, after we got the INT on Carolina's next drive, and we have the ball again in the red zone, on 3rd and 2 instead of throwing to get the first we run a sweep with Deuce that gets stopped for a loss. Why? Cause of the prev fumble. I would have given Brooks a perfect game if not for that play, cause it seemed like it effected two drives. But damn, this team, and especially Brooks, played a good game today. Two spots of concern: Rushing offense, and pass rush on defense. Neither was as consistent as I would have liked. But we won. Hallelujah. Thanks Saints, and thanks LSU for a great weekend when we needed it the most.

Brooks looked good. I'd like to see more time for him, but I guess with a couple new starters on the OL it'll just take a little time to gel. In fact my biggest complaint for the offense WAS the Offensive Line, 2.4 yards a carry won't allow Brooks to use the play action since teams won't be afraid of the run. Let's hope TheDeuce's estimate of the Carolina D-Line is accurate, since that means it get easier next week and beyond.
