SHELL ON BROOKS:

SHELL ON BROOKS: Raiders coach Art Shell said the biggest hurdle for former Saints quarterback Aaron Brooks will be to get away from where he's been, to "mentally erase as much of what happened and just dive into what we're doing with the Raiders."

Shell said Brooks, who turned 30 last week, is not coming in as a teacher, and that he will compete with young quarterbacks Marques Tuiasosopo and Andre Walter.

I think that slate has been clean for a while. Gotta have something on the board to be able to erase.

You missed the key part from Shell, "dive in". Art knows when he has found someone who knows how to take a dive.

Guys, I thought the general consensus was to let the Black and SILVER message boards discuss Aaron from now on. Lets focus on the future, not the past.

you are right BJ. my bad, the less said the better. it is kinda like a divorce though- you may wish the ex gets hooked up with, if not a wacko, at least a loser so she may realize what she blew or didn't blow as the case may be )

After all the heartache I got from Aaron Brooks, I know I didn't agree to anything of the sort. The thread is clearly titled. If anyone doesn't wanna discuss Aaron, don't. As for me, I am gonna purge my system of his memory every chance I get. Noone should be apologizing cause they are talking about Aaron Brooks, unless we are no longer gonna talk about LeCharles, Howard, Knight, Roaf, Turley, Delhomme, O'Sullivan, Tesucky, or any other player who has left for another team.

Hmmmm let ask this question. How many of you were at the Super Dome that wonderful day when Hakim fumbled the ball? How many of you hated Brooks then? How many of you hated him the day he threw for 5 TDs against the Giants? How many of you are old enough to remember when Bobby, Archie, Billy, and who ever else we had at QB made bonehead plays. Did you guys hate Bobby Hebert when he threw the interception to Deion Sanders in the playoff game against Atlanta? Seems to me this franchise has never had a QB to take us to the promise land...yet all of the hatred is directed to Brooks like no other...can anyone tell me why that is? And please don't give me the Archie played on bad teams story...don't tell me he didn't have the talent that Brooks had. Both sucked at different points of their time in a Saints uniform and both suffered miserably from playing behind sub-standard offensive lines. I look forward to seeing Drew Brees in a Saints uniform and I look forward to seeing AB throwing to Randy Moss...you know someone who can catch the ball and do something with it after it's caught

Brooks is a Raider and Brees is a Saint.
