Brooks Get's Recognition from NFL.com!

Who said there is NO such thing as BAD publicity??

From a Gregg Easterbrook article on NFL.com

Never Run Backward! There is one player in the NFL who should be allowed to run backward, and he is Dante Hall. Everyone else, it's pretty simple -- run forward, not backward. Miami leading 6-3 and the United States Saints facing third-and-6 in Dolphins territory, Aaron Brooks of the Saints reversed his field backward three times and ended up being sacked for a 25-yard loss. Later, Miami leading 9-6 and New Orleans facing third-and-17 on its own 8, Brooks ran backward into his end zone and was sacked for a safety. Not only is it nutty to run backward toward your own end zone, it's especially nutty to do this on third-and-17 when a punt on the next snap is likely. New Orleans ended up with 68 yards lost on sacks in a 21-6 defeat.

RE: Brooks Get

Ok I would have to say that the Offensive Line is responsible for about 20 of those yards. So my point would be that instead of being a smart player, Mr. Brooks always makes the situation worse and the majority of those yards and a safety are directly attributed to his dumb arse. If he is looking to get traded he will or demoted to number 2 next year because the cat is out of the bag:

Brooks is a dummy!!!!!!!

We don't have to waste anymore time thinking or debating the subject. The national media now has him in their grasp and as you know will not let him go until they have beaten the horse to death.

No way out BOB!

Golf and sex are about the only things you can enjoy without being good at them.

RE: Brooks Get

If the blocking was so poor and he really didn't have anywhere else to go with the ball, you throw it away or take the sack. He did neither. He ran backwards.

If I see Brooks sacked 7 times for 20-30 yards, I blame the offensive line. If I see Brooks sacked 7 times for 60-70 yards, then, the quarterback is just as responsible as the line. There is no excuse for losing that much yardage.
