Only cares about himself:



Brooks tries to put Katrina, New Orleans behind him

JOSH DUBOW

Associated Press

ALAMEDA, Calif. - While much of the country is remembering the horrors of Hurricane Katrina, Oakland Raiders quarterback Aaron Brooks is trying to forget everything that happened in his last season with the New Orleans Saints - both on and off the field

"I'm trying to cleanse myself from New Orleans so I don't even try to go back and talk about it," Brooks said Monday, the day before the one-year anniversary of Katrina hitting Louisiana. "I don't even try to remember that year. It's in the past, it's over and it's done with. I only have a house to sell so I'm moving forward. I try not to think about any of that stuff."

Eighty percent of the city was swamped when the levees broke after Katrina blew ashore on Aug. 29, 2005. Virtually all 465,000 residents of the city and roughly 1 million more in surrounding areas were forced to flee; much of the housing was heavily damaged or destroyed; and the death toll in Louisiana was close to 1,600.

Brooks said even all the coverage from newspapers and television stations doing retrospectives and stories on the rebuilding effort along the Gulf Coast hasn't led him to think about what he and his teammates went through at this time last season.

"No because I'm not from New Orleans," he said. "New Orleans was my place of residency for six years during the season, but I only worked there. I'm not a New Orleans native, I'm from Virginia. So I just worked there. It was a job and I have a new job. And I'm very excited about being here and I look forward to doing some wonderful things here. ... I don't even try to go back. I don't even talk about it."

Brooks was in the Bay Area with the Saints when Katrina hit. The team had fled New Orleans early to come to California and practice before an exhibition game against the Raiders. When the Saints left Oakland, they went to San Antonio, where they practiced for the rest of the season while playing their home games at three different sites.

RE: Typical Brooks.....

The best thing for AB is put things behind him. He was not confident in the O-line is what his problem was... he is getting confident in Oakland and having some good games and 4-0!

Talk to me again at season's end about how great Brooks is doing. He did the same thing when he was here, great one or two weeks and then....well, you know the rest.

He's such an idiot. I hope he never mates and reproduces.

Appearantly, the Raiders are really impressed with Brooks, having signed Jeff George, and all.

And I know how much of a factor a team's Pre-Season record is on the Regular Season, just ask the Colts. What were they, 0-8 before they played us?

Brooks will be smiling at all his teammates and the crowd from the bench this season.

WAY TO GO AB! YOU REALLY ARE A GOOD PLAYER!

Brooks vs. a guy who hasn't thrown a pass in 5 years. I'm sure Vegas is having a hard time giving odds on this one.

Remember the year he threw a big fit because he wasn't elected to the Pro Bowl?

He lost my respect when he did that. Not very professional at all, even if he did deserve to go, which he didn't.
