The fumble concerns you because of the timing. It really makes no sense and I don't know how you prevent it from happening.

Having said that...AB reallylooked good today. He moved UP in the pocket and showed off what has to be one of the best arms in the league. There is only one word for those throws.....LASER. The late throw to Horn was ridiculous. No dropped passes. The only turnover was by our defense.

Take a look at the highlights when Brooks hits the huddle on the last drive. You can ding hiim for the smiling, but I guarantee when he hits the huddle loose like that with 1 minute to play, it helps the team.

I've never been an AB lover or hater. Whoever's side you are on, you walk away with this....2 straight games AB has outplayed Jake. Period. If nothing else, it should make losing Jake sting a little less.

I was so pumped up after the game today, I wanted to tackle someone. I've never been prouder to be a fan of a team. The team that never gets any love is getting showered with praise and respect. (A gameball from Berman?) We have to stay focused and win the games we're supposed to win. Buddy D and Katrina may just combine to make this a season for the ages

It's kind of sad that people expect a perfect game from Brooks. He played damn good out there. I guess I am the only one believe that was a foward (incomplete) pass.

I hope they don't start Hodge next week. The guy is horrible on run plays & semi-average on pass plays. The line-up should be Bockwalt olb, Watson olb, & McKinnon mlb.

it didn't matter in the end what deuce's yards per carry were. it was setting up the pass with play action because they didn't know when the run was coming. in the past if you shut down deuce you shgut down the saints. not today which was nice. i like that we didn't abandon the run.i like this kind of football and i hope we play it all year long

nice call yasoon, did anyone see that throw in slow motion replay!? It was still FAST, what a bullet. Yeah, play where the ball came out the back of his hand hurt; however, Brooks was clearly a leader out on that field.

I realize this is an AB thread, but he did all those great things behind a great offensive line. One of them, Jamal Brown was outstanding. Yes, he did have the "yips" once or twice, but then again Peppers did not get a SACK.

Not bad for a rookie, and his first game of the season.

Everyone knows I have no love for Brooks, so for me to say he played an almost perfect game is big. Strangely, I gave him the same praise after the Carolina game to end the season last year. Maybe he truly is coming around. But if he plays like he did against Carolina all season, we will have a very strong year. If he exes the red zone turnovers altogether, we may be dancing in Detroit. The defense looked inspired out there. And the only reason Smith beat McKenzie is cause McKenzie went all out for the strip of the ball instead of making the tackle. You could see him trying to rip it out. HE just missed, and Bellamy, as we all know, was too slow to catch Smith. But outside of that 80 yard run, and a couple of whiffs by Colby, the D was pretty stout against the run. This whole team seemed inspired, top to bottom. That is a feeling I hope they carry all year. If we keep our D and add a stud LB next year, or a stud DT, or both we could be scary good on D again. And withthe offense coming around, yikes. If it doesn't happen this year for us, it very well may next year.

Getting love? Not quite. I haven't forgotten his name is Aaron Brooks. But I just feel if he keeps playing now like he should have been the last 4 years, we have a real shot at something special, like we could have had the last 4 years, had he been playing like he has the last two games against Carolina. If he plays the rest of the league like that this year, yikes. We could be scary good.

Brooks played with emotion, it's nice to see some of his talent coming out. The simplied offense may well be the key to this guy realizing his potential.

There is still room for improvement. Our red zone offense is still shaky. Regardless, I was very impressed with Brooks yesterday.
