Good point.

mjf...here are Marino's stats during those years. Now lets look at offensive scheme. Brooks will never ever throw this much because Haslett was over zealous about our running game. Between 88-89 he threw practically as many picks as he did TD's. You gonna tell me he was not affected? I won't talk about 87 cause of the strike. Now mjf...I singled out this portion of his career because I remember those teams were frutrating to watch.(Like the Saints these last 3 years) You gonna call those numbers successful? Cause if you are then Brooks did great! I remember '86 also. He had a great year. Problem was the defense was like swiss cheese.

2002 New Orleans Saints 16 16 528 283 53.6 3572 6.77 64 27 15
2003 New Orleans Saints 16 16 518 306 59.1 3546 6.85 76 24 8
2004 New Orleans Saints 16 16 542 309 57.0 3810 7.03 57 21 16

These are Brooks last 3 years. WOW mjf...the success rate between Brooks and MArino when they had crappy teams is astounding isn't it?

Oh and I won't discuss 2005. I don't think anyone should.

Okay, first you convienently left out '05 the most recent and worst year of Brooks' career, which helps to prove his regression and your bias. That year Brooks threw 17 INTs in just 13 games, and only 13 TD's. You also left off Brooks' 58 career fumbles. And as far as stats, in Brooks' case that makes a total of 4 out of six years. In Marino's, it is only 3 out of 17 years. See that is the biggest difference, Marino has the GREAT years to show his proven ability, and Brooks does NOT. You can not win this argument, so just give up.

Give up?!? HA! Never. LOL. As far as proven ability? Brooks has the only playoff win and the record for most touchdown passes by a Saint. I think he did it in half or almost half the time that Manning did it. But I would definitely have to defend Manning on the point of my whole arguement which is:...bad teams will always affect QB's performances. Even the best of them.
You really wanna bring up '05? Thats your call. Personally I refuse to discuss '05. Lets face it the Saints were definitely not in any kind of mindset to play good football. The fact that they went out there each week and tried though makes me love them even more.

One last thing...go look at Marino's stats. I love Marino to death but the reality is... if you look at every season Marino played a full 16 game schedule...take away '84, '86, and '94 you'll see that his numbers really weren't that much better than Brooks. In fact, the were almost the same minus attempts and yardage.(Obviously Haslett depended on the run game a whole lot more than Shula did.)

Well, I'm out. Whether you hate me or not...its all good mjf. i'm always down for a good discussion. You guys have a great weekend. I may stop in but for the most part I'll be back on Monday. Peace to all and Go Saints Go!

BINGO!!
