Looks like it could happen?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Playbook was not cut...Verbage was cut. Just cause the man can't speak right or look at film is no reason to poke fun. LMAO, it seems AB got poked by someone else and that's the reason he can't play anymore....

Wrong again! Many ex-Saints players (heres a few: Willie Roaf, Kyle Turley, Jerry Fontenot, Jake Delhomme, & Terrelle Smith) have been quoted as saying that Aaron Brooks could not learn the entire playbook, therefore it had to be cut in half & simplified. Kyle Turley was the most vocal about it on 106.7 "the End" radio right before he was traded. He went so far as to say that Brooks could care less about winning, because: he didn't study game film, spent more time partying than learning the playbook (even after it was simplified), & had no respect for the people on his offensive line blocking for them. Doesn't that make defenses jobs a little easier? Is this the kind of guy you want leading your offense? LOL

Dude.....I was injecting some humor.

However on the Turley thing consider the source. He was a great player and I loved his fire but an a$$ everywhere he went. To coaches and teamates.

Montana's 49ers went 2-14 and 6-10 the first two seasons he was there. He split time with Deburg and did not take over the team until the 1981 season, when they took off.

Elway was benched for 4 games halfway through his rookie season.

Marino did well. However remember that he dropped in the draft that year. The 1982 Dolphins went 7-2 in the strike shortened 82 season.

BTW Montana was drafted in the third round.


If I'm not mistaken, Marino took the Dolphins to the Super Bowl in his first season.
Second season. Big Ben mirrors in a lot of ways.


Though most take a season or two before becoming stars, I think Leinart will upgrade the QB position for us as a rookie simply by playing smarter than what Brooks has. Not to mention, this guy knows how to lead his receivers & can actually learn an entire playbook.
This isn't a Brooks discussion. The last #2 pick the Saints had was 35 years ago. They don't come along often. BTW I am aware of the Rogers #1 pick.

I know that Leinart will be an upgrade. But an upgrade isn't what you look for in a #2 pick. In that pick you look for a player that brings Pro Bowl caliber talent that stabilizes the position for the next 10 years.

Look at the top of 1999 draft as a perfect example. From http://www.hickoksports.com/history/nfldraft1999.shtml\

# Team Player Pos College
  • 1 Cleveland Tim Couch QB Kentucky
  • 2 Philadelphia Donovan McNabb QB Syracuse
  • 3 Cincinnati Akili Smith QB Oregon
  • 4 Indianapolis Edgerrin James RB Miami
  • 5 New Orleans Ricky Williams RB Texas
  • 6 St. Louis Torry Holt WR North Carolina State

Look at the QB in the #2 slot. I've very scared because of the #1 and #3 picks.

What is it about Leinart that makes him McNabb, Manning, or Palmer type QBs and not the Tim Couches or even Ryan Leaf's (yet another #2 pick) of the draft.

Once again, this is not about Brooks. Brooks won't take a pay cut because his ego believes that he is an elite QB in this league. So he'll take the chance of getting cut and shopping his services than to be humble, accept the pay cut and play for a change to be the starter here. He's not in the equation.

If we pick Leinart #2 does he have the talent to be an elite QB in this league?

SFIAH

The Saints have three consecutive 10 win seasons and a SB championship.

I can hardly believe this happened in my lifetime.

You hit the nail on the head. It is difficult for a top pick to come to a losing team and turn them into winners immeadiately. But do you really believe that the Saints are as bad as their 3-13 record or do you think the previous 3 years of .500 ball is a better representation. I'm not making excuses for the team, but this was clearly far from an average year. Everything even, I personally believe that the team is an 8-8 club. And making a jump from average to very good is not out of the question.

Embelished? Why you gotta' pull out the big words B&B? LOL

I know it sounds crazy-Kyle Turley talking about someone else's partying habits. Actually, Brooks caught the lighter side of Turley's comments. Turley had a morning wake up call in the mornings when he was with the Saints from 106.7 "the End". This particular conversation came a couple of days before Turley was traded to the Rams (which probably had a lot to do with Turley's negative comments about the organization). He was more rabid about dissing Haslett & his coaching staff, not to mention owner Tom Benson. I've tried to Google this conversation, but since Hurricane Katrina, "the End" 106.7 radio doesn't exist anymore.

Hey FJ, you say you like the Jimmy Johnson model of stocking up on draft picks and drafting speed on defense. Let me ask you a question, who was Jimmy Johnson's first pick as coach of the cowboys? It was Troy Aikman with the first overall pick in the 1989 draft. So FJ, I agree with you, let's go by the Jimmy Johnson model, draft a qb with our first pick, then build up the defense after. Jimmy Johnson model all the way!!!

Funny thing though LLT is that I'm sure the reports on Troy Aikman are not like Leinarts. I keep hearing that the man lacks arm strength....sounds more like a glorified Danny Wuerfful if you ask me. I'm sure JJ would not have picked a guy like Lienart. One more thing...before JJ showed up and picked Aikman? Who was the Dallas QB? I don't even remember.
