Aaron Brooks

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; No need to do the research. I\'ll admit they probably were questioning his leadership in his early years. I\'m just saying that questioning Aaron\'s leadership based on stats doesn\'t render good results b/c a good leader can have bad years ...

No need to do the research. I\'ll admit they probably were questioning his leadership in his early years.

I\'m just saying that questioning Aaron\'s leadership based on stats doesn\'t render good results b/c a good leader can have bad years and bad games. (example: Elway) Nobody questioned Elway\'s leadership in the 90\'s when he went 5-11.

Aaron is really in a catch 22 on this subject because a lot of critics would say: Look how cool he is before the game. He is so laid back and ready to go. Then when things don\'t go right people say: He\'s not intense. He doesn\'t have that desire to win.

It\'s all about perspective and this year it\'s negative because we didn\'t make the playoffs. Had a couple of TE\'s and a WR or 2 played up to form, we\'d have made the playoffs and Aaron would be a hero now because of playing hurt and through the pain. Instead, you get a team that spent the entire 2002 season not playing at their best level against sorry teams which causes the them to miss the playoffs and suddenly Aaron\'s not the leader we need.

ScottyRo,

I too agree that stats are not the only indicator of a leader. True leaders have supreme faith in their ability and know they have what it takes, not matter what the situation might be.

Great leaders are always in doubt in the early going, simply because of the fact they have not proved themselves yet.

That\'s why leaders that give people a chance to be leaders know it\'s a work and progress and give them time to show that they are indeed a leader.

I have said the same thing over and over about Brooks. Some feel he is the 2nd coming great,others not. Billy looking at the number of posts you have in less than one month,is it possible that we are not getting all of the quality out of you we could?

Ahhh, gotcha. I\'m familiar with Kyocera mita, but never sold their stuff. Copiers and faxes have never been our thing, but we do a ton of other electronics, mostly education solutions.
