When was the last time we saw anyone from The Sporting News suit up and play defense? Go back through the news reports and see what other defensive players have to say about AB.Those are the guys i\'d want to listen to, to see how good an offinsive player is.

Ignorance is an interesting thought there .

To directly connect the receivers to Brooks is ignorance , pure and simple . To eliminate the individual effort of a player is absurd . Whom do you connect Jerry Rice too ???
Horn was a threat in Kansas City .
Pathon was a threat in Indy .

These receivers would have made Everett the starting pro bowl Qb . Not to mention sitting behind this front line .

Green Bay game

Brooks leads the opening drive 68 yards . Good , but most opening drives are scripted and defenses are not set . Brooks leads a 21 yard drive , not that far with the current talent , not impressive . Next score Donte 34 yard gallop after Fontenot serves a pancake . Craver gets one . Duece is loose for 62 .

Impressive was Favre\'s passing skills , especially the final drive of the first half . Did you note the ball position ??? Knight sure did ... Packers lost thats for sure , but how many passes can Favre complete while spending the afternoon on his rear end ??? The defense delivered .

Brooks has athletic ability , and can fire the frozen rope . His leadership skills are questionable , he has no touch on the ball , his accuracy is questionable and he has yet to show he can hit the long ball ...

Hardly impressive for a quarterback that stated he was better then both Griese and Fiedler , and to see how that is coming along let\'s see.
123.8 Fiedler
100.0 Griese
79.3 Brooks

Still not impressive .

Brooks is doing a mediocre job at leading a very talented offense . With the support of a good defense . I understand the starving fan theory on the quarterback , but try to understand , post Billy Joe syndrome does not make Brooks a superstar .

George plimpton tried that writer turned player thing in Detroit and Indy , not sure we need to see it again ... It was ugly ....

Joe Horn was not a threat in K.C. and Pathon was having his first good year in Indy before he got hurt last year.

Of course you are excluding his rookie year , since the only rookie to beat his reception and yardage total was Randy Moss . And of course you have taken into consideration he played opposite Marvin Harrison before coming to New Orleans .

Horn was not a threat in K.C..

He was 2nd on the club with receptions over 20 yards and 3rd in reception and yardage totals .

I suppose Mueller paid him the big bucks because he was slow and could help on special teams ?????

Saints08, are you trying to tell us you don\'t like Aaron Brooks? Who would you have as quarterback? As i said earlier, i\'d rather listen to the men that have to defense AB, for some misguided reason I think they might know a little more than any of us. And as a wise old football coach once said\" statistics are for losers\". But then again i suppose he didn\'t know what he was talking about.

Look ya\'ll. Do you know what to do with that annoying little punk in the back of the class, or that co-worker that just HAS to be right about everything? You ignore that person. Just ignore Saintz08. His mind won\'t be changed. If the Saints wn the Super Bowl and Brooks throws for 400 yards in the game he STILL wouldn\'t be satisfied. Let his ignorance keep him company! The Better Aaron plays the more Saintz08 will look for reasons to pass credit on to someone else. Sunday was Aaron\'s second game with the offense, and if Saintz08 doesn\'t get it by now he never will.

When sports commentators follow all the potential greatness of the New Orleans Saints with IF, then I have to wonder .

If Brooks is not streaky
If Brooks is not Hinky , what is hinky ??? Did Pasquarelli just make that term up Monday ???

Sometimes sports casters generalize too much and take a problem and call it streaky or hot and cold , when it is simply the players inability to do it . All quarterbacks will eventually throw off their back foot , throw interceptions and force a pass , these are givens in the game .

Haslett was fascinated in how a mobile quarterback caused chaos in his defense while in Pittsburgh , so he went after Blake , Mc Carthy saw the same thing in Brooks in Green Bay and he ended up in New Orleans . Brooks has problems in his throwing style , Mc Carthy has been able to adjust the offense to these problems and mask them , the defense has been able to give him the short field and come up large with turn overs and stops . Eventually opposing defensive coordinators will see this and shut Brooks routes down and force him to expose his inabilities and some commentator may call it streaky . With the offensive arsenal the New Orleans Saints have at their disposal now , there is no reason games should be this offensively close .

If I had my way , I would not change Brooks . I would fire Mc Carthy and replace him with Riley . Riley knows offenses , Mc Carthy coaches quarterbacks .

Sorry JOESAM2002 , my association with NFL franchises ended a few years back , so I no longer have the luxury of asking opposing defensive players what they think of Brooks , I have to go with the Sports Casters ...
