And with that, Oldies gives me no need to even go on with this. We'll talk after we finish 8-8 again.

Actually, I am 5'5" and I weigh 130lbs. I am too small to play football at the college level. I never played football in high school because our school did not have enough people to make a team. However, I did play linebacker a couple years in little league and I can tell you that I exploited the hell out of quarterbacks. I knew when they made mistakes and I made them pay for it. I had atleast 2 or 3 sacks a game. Unfortunately, I am no Sam Mills. Besides, Sam Mills was still taller than me.

Also, I am not old enough to coach and have no experience with it because there was no team for my high school. However, if I so choose, I could change my major while I'm attending college and pursue the career. You know, maybe I will do that after I receive my broadcasting degree.

Others that have played the position?

How can you say that I do not know what I'm talking about. I've posted countless posts about pocket protection and other quarterback fundementals that are really, flat out, basic. No one has ever disputed them, yet Brooks continues to screw those fundementals up. Where did I learn them? Hell, I've been learning football since I've been five years old. Thats right, learning..not only watching.

When sports center shows a play and draws all over the television screen, slow motions it, reverses it, plays it over and over again, and talks about fundementals such as a quarterback keeping square, I pay attention. My little league coaches were teaching our quarterbacks these things since day 1. Brooks should have learned these things in little league.

And you know what? I really can't think of any other place I gathered this information from. I just know football. Its common knowledge to me.

I've seen fundementally sound quarterbacks and I've seen backyard ballers. I prefer fundementally sound quarterbacks over Aaron Brooks anyday.

Fundementally Sound QBs:
Peyton Manning
Donovon McNabb (at times)
Tom Brady
Eli Manning
-These tend to be the guys that stick around the league for decades because teams love veterans on their roster who won't lose the game for them.

Backyard Ballers:
Aaron Brooks
Bret Favre
Michael Vick
Quincy Carter

-These are guys who make big splashes early on in their careers then dissipate quickly. They're athletically advanced compared to the rest of the field. They loose their prime early. They tend to be extremely controversial characters.
