AB is AWESOME!!!!!!!!

Awesomely terrible. I said even when we beat the Panthers, and he had that phantom fumble, the whoosh I think it's called, the old AB was still in there. And it was. Where is all the praise now? Pile up stats while racking up 4 turnovers. I think oldies DJ summed it up best in the "No Brooks Bashing" thread, so I won't repeat, but no Brooks bashing isn't my rule. This is EXACTLY why the offense was changed to have the ball in Brooks' hands less. Egads this dude blows. But that brings me to the offense as a whole. Who the F$%& designed the running game? All I saw was Deuce plow into a stacked line for a yard almost every play. Where are the counters, misdirection, pulling guard, off tackle, etc. etc. Is Carl Smith back in town? This had to be the most unimaginitive running game plan I have seen since the Redskins first got Portis and didn't know what todo with him. And is it me, or does it seem like we still run out of a two tight end set a lot? Keep Karney in front of Deuce on every run. How hard is that? But damn Brooks sucks. He is not the only reason we lost, but he is one of the main ones. Exhale.......... I guess it's back to reality for Brooks lovers. Too bad we can't play the Panthers every week. That's the only game you can count on Brooks performing above his normal mediocre-terrible.

I couldn't agree more with this. The whole time I am sitting there saying to myself....we can't try anything different than right in the middle straight into a pile of 8 guys who aren't moving? This annoyed me.

If Brooks "sucks" after yesterday's performance, then Culpepper must be complete dog crap after this past Sunday...


Brooks made alot of solid throws in yesterday's game...even drawing praise from the announcing crew. I woudln't even call him one of the "MAIN" reasons we lost.

Anyway, we lost.....and it's time to move on. After we beat Minnesota this Sunday, you'll all be euphoric again....so none of this negative talk really matters.

RE: Re: AB is AWESOME!!!!!!!!

nice throws and blah blah blah. 1 td 3 int's. 1 fumble. his up n down play is very important. if we beat minny next week and he plays well, then we wil loose to green bay the following week. he is a problem. not the only one but he is a huge one. man at some point you have to say the guy isn't going to take the next step. right now though he is our best and probably only option.

No Brooks doesn't suck after yesterday's performance, Brooks has sucked 50% of the time every year he has been on this team now. And we already discussed Culeppper, so move on. Turn the page. We are talking about the QB OF THE NEW ORLEANS SAINTS, Mr. Mediocrity. He drew praise in the first quarter, before the mistakes. And he most definitely was one of the main reasons we lost, unless you don't think turnovers were a factor. It's hilarious when Brooks has a game like this, let's move on, but when Delhomme did it, is was 5 pages of Brooks is better. This is priceless.

True, the loss was a team effort.

And AB did make some really good throws. The sideline throw to horn early on was great. The dropped TD by Conwell and the tipped interception were not on AB. But, for every plus...AB supplied a minus.

Now.....the fumble was just awful. We had established a nice drive and that was the point where the game truly could have been turned our way. This is the dichotomy of Aaron Brooks....he moved well in the pocket and made some nice throws, but his mistakes were amplified by their negative impact. His timing is amazing when it comes to sucking the life out of the team.

Haz lost his cool tonite....and I would love to know who our video guy in the booth is. Neither of the challenges were even remotely disputable.

And, everyone should remember that trick plays are considered crafty until they go wrong. If McAfee gets the end and goes out to the 50, we would have all thought it was a great call. As it was, it knocked the wind right out of our sails and we were in 2004 mode from the whistle. The Giants held their lanes really well on the play and that's why McAfee got swarmed.

The defense played very well, especially in the second half. They played well enough to win the game with the notable exceptions of Craft and the pass rush.

The running game has sucked for 2 weeks and it's not on Deuce. There's only so much running you can do standing in a half ton of humanity every time you touch the ball. Whodi is right on...where are the counters...the pulling guards, the misdirection. Our running plays are the same ones we all ran in midget football. Straight ahead in the one hole, straight ahead in the 4 hole etc. Those plays work when your o line is dominating....ours is not.

Oh, and thanks for the crowd noise at our home game...that was awesome. Appreciate it Tags. The Saints "logo" in the endzone looked like I pissed it. Screw the Giants.....but they do appear to have a better team than anyone thought. Their D played really well when they had to.

I'll say it again...give me substance over style. 400 yards in between the twenties and ten measly points.

Does anybody have our record on Monday night football? We suck moose cock in prime time....it's almost like we get too hyped up and try to stick our chest out.

RE: Re: AB is AWESOME!!!!!!!!

How can you say Brooks is not one of the main reasons?

Why did we lose? 6 turnovers.

Brooks accounted for 4 of those 6.

Thats over fifty percent, homes.

Ahhhh, optimism.....God bless you Chaching

You know what helped me last night? I watched a documentary on the school massacre in Russia a year ago after the game. It put things in perspective seeing a bunch of 8 year olds talk about their mums dying while they watched. I was beside myself till I saw that...then I went and hugged my little girl and forgot about football so that I could sleep.
