Jokes on you, Art Shell..."lead the huddle..haha?!"

Art Shell said on the sidelines that he needs Aaron Brooks to take charge of the huddle! Has he watched Brooks EVER? Brooks has never looked Firey, never took charge of the huddle, never demanded anything from his players, and always smiles , even after a sack! What is wrong with Oakland...Old Coach, poor players, old defensive linemen, proven loser, vetran QB! Art Shell, I like you, but when you get fired again...you'll have no one to blame except you and your scouts!

If Art Shell turns AB into a leader in the huddle, and a consistant Pro Bowl QB, then would that make him one of the greatest coaches ever.....?

Art is going to pull him into the coaches office early in the season and kick the living crap out him for grinning after a bone head play. that maybe whats brooks needs. Art is old school Raider.
"Brooks takes the field in the second half sporting a black eye and busted lip." that would be nice

I still can't understand why Al Davis gave Art another shot , the Raiders really need good help, I don't think Art is the right guy for Oakland,

Yeah, you don't see the Bears giving Ditka his job back...
The Raiders are just desperate to fill the void they created when they essentially "traded" Jon Gruden.

Personally, I can't wait to see the confrontation between Brooks and Randy Moss after AB overthrows him for the 12th time this season.

From Art Shell's Wikipedia entry:

Al Davis, owner of the Raiders, fired Shell after a 9-7 season in 1994, a move Davis said he later regretted.
I don't understand why the guy was fired in the first place.

I also don't understand why it took 12 years for him to get another shot. Most NFL head coaches get retreaded even when they were terrible the first time around. Look at Norv Turner, or even Belichik after his stint in Cleveland.

Shell isn't in love with Brooks like Haslett was. If Brooks isn't producing he'll be sat and one of the other guys will get a shot. It isn't a weak QB backup group in Oakland like Haz had here the last three years.

SFIAH

The Saints have been to playoffs 4 of the last 5 years and a own a SB championship.

I can hardly believe this happened in my lifetime.

Bless you Art Shell for taking that hapless doofuss off our hands.

One of the happiest days of my life (after the days my children were born and the day I got married) was the day the SAINTS finally gave brooks the heave ho. I dispised his attitude and play so much that I literally quit watching the SAINTS almost alltogether and quit posting here two years ago.

I am glad to be back in the fold now with both the SAINTS and BlackAndGold.net. Its a good day for the SAINTS and their fans and a sad, sorry day for Oakland. But, who gives a flying F*%k about the Raiders anyway?

Go SAINTS!!!!!
