I'm saddened to think that the misfortune of Aaron Brooks has brought so much joy to so many. A true shame that you people are callous, reprehensible and ignorant.

AB, it is what it is.

WOOO HOOO

Just a few thoughts in no particular order.

1. Benching Brooks (gosh it feels GREAT to type that) does us zero good if we don't get a chance to see what McPherson can do. We know what Bouman has, he's no more the answer than Brooks is.

2. This may be a Billy slanted conspiracy worthy of 08, but I can only see 2 reasons that Jim "as long as I'm in New Orleans I want AB as my QB" Haslett would bench him.

2a. The same Tom Benson who fired his dear friend Fielkow for not parroting the party line in the press doesn't like hearing his highly paid QB saying bad things about Saints ownership in the press. I wouldn't be shocked to hear that Benson wants Brooks head on a pike after his interview the other day.

2b. Saints management doesn't want to see Brooks tear an ACL in the last 3 worthless games and kill what trade value he might have. I'm cautiously optimistic about this motivation. The only thing better than getting rid of AB is getting rid of AB to a team that will spend the rest of his career in the cellar.

3. I'm really not sure about Leinart. He might turn out to be the next Joe freaking Montana, but I have a bad gut feeling about him. It seems FAR more likely that he's the next Ken Dorsey. I don't like the idea of using a top 3 pick and paying top 3 money for the guy. I'd be a lot happier with either Reggie Bush, a franchise Left Tackle (Ferguson or Scott maybe) or AJ Hawk.

4. I'd be game to try and draft a LT and MLB and then swing a 3rd to grab the Cutler kid from Vanderbilt. If McPherson isn't the future, we're pretty much looking at a rebuild all over the team. I'm looking forward to the rebuild though.

5. If we're just going to sit Brooks, why not try to deal him RIGHT NOW? The Jets or Raiders might be open to trying to work something out...

6. Uh, maybe I've been away too long.... What's the story with the improbably built "woman" with the headless avatar?

7. It's time for JKool to weigh in on this.

8. If the situation about free agents this off season is going to be as bad as some are predicting--we need to get 3 starters out of this draft. If McPherson can't do it, we'll have to get a QB. I'd really like to get a LT and MLB. We need to draft really wisely and try to manage 3 starters out the group.

I have had the urge to toss a few out there ....

I have an addition to your reasons for Brooks benched .

Certainly at some point , Hasbeens iron will to stay with Brooks and pamper Brooks , just does not look good to other team owners .These coaches are brought in to win games and not to coddle potential filled quarterbacks .So we get Bouman next week and Saintsfans know this is the one quarterback who can make Brooks look great .Will we get Amac ???

Most likely week 17 in San Antonio , Look for a build up to it and the announcement before week 17 . Shortly after the game , I look for Hasbeens resignation .

\"Americans play to win at all times. I wouldn\'t give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed.\" - George S. Patton
On another note, I\'ll take a bite of that crow 08. - Saintfan
Brooks is a moron!! - Halo

Leinart might be great or the next Tim Couch. If we get a top 5 pick could we not trade down, pick up Hawk and then work something out to get Philip Rivers. yes he has been riding the bench but so did a QB with the last name Young. Is all the trade value for Howard gone? Or could we get like a 3 or 4th round pick for him? The Bears got Orton in the 4th round and he does what he's supposed to (not screwing up).

Hard to attract free agents? I bet it will be but then agian, I rather see the saints pick 15 guys right of the street that really would sacrifice themselves for this team than to pick up 2-3 overpaid FAs with a bad attitude.

You kids get off my lawn!

But they are going to start Bouman. If we want to see what we have for the future -- lets start AMAC
