Brooks has same poor attitude AGAIN!

Don Pompei of Sporting news has an article about Saints trying to change the late season fallout. Haslett appears to be concerned about this so that is good news, but the Brooks quote in this article shows he still has no leadership and appears he never will.

Here is what Brooks has to say:
What happens to Brooks late in the season? “Teams make adjustments,� he says while sitting on a bench after a passing camp practice. “They won’t continue to allow you to do the things you’ve been doing all year. This is the NFL. Overall team production dropped. We had a lot of drops, missed blocks, protection problems, the defense didn’t do as well. It all goes back on the quarterback, but I don’t feel I need to change or do anything different.�

Blaming everyone and not even assuming any part of the blame himself. Brooks has all the physical tools to be a great QB but he is an "I" player. It is obvious to me Brooks will never get it and will be a fool the rest of his career. Get rid of him while he is suppose to be a hot commodity and before he becomes the next "cancer" on a young team.

FWtex,

That was Haslett that said that not Brooks. I would comment on your opinion of Brooks but unitl you get your facts straight it\'s a moot point.

Actually, Billy, the way that article is structured, it sounds like it is coming from Brooks. If you read the next paragraph, it states the following:

Brooks is a fine quarterback. But he is young, barely 27. \"He needs to step up and play better down the stretch,\" Haslett says. \"He has to get tougher and be more of a leader. And he\'s getting a lot better in those areas.\"

Those last two sentences seem to be a direct contradiction to the final statement made in the paragraph before:

It all goes back on the quarterback, but I don’t feel I need to change or do anything different.�

So either it was indeed Brooks who made that statement or Haslett is suffering from multiple peronality disorder. Neither would shock me.

The waiting drove me mad....

Agreed - get rid of him before the rest of the NFL sees him as the selfish immature player he is and go find a Trent Dilfer to MANAGE the game and drive an offense full of hot rods!

heh

You guys are gonna get all worked up and blow a gasket or something. Brooks isn\'t going anywhere...he\'s the starter until someone takes the job from him. Ya\'ll could/would mis-interprit Ghandi if you thought it\'d suit your opinion.

Now, that\'s all I\'m gonna contribute to the Brooks debat \'til preseason. I\'m fairly certain Whodat will appreciate that!

:P

I am fairly certain I read the article correct and Brooks is the source of the quote.

I am not a basher of Brooks for no cause. I love the guys physical skills but only wish he had better mental judgement and desire to be a great player. Personally I see Brooks as a player who is going to do just enough to keep his job ... and that is not the type of player you find on a championship caliber team.

Unfortunately Brooks is the starter on this team. HAZ loves this guy and as long as the offense moves the ball and scores points Brooks will start. My worry is that Brooks finger pointing to everyone except himself will eventually spread to finger pointing by others. That same type of finger pointing is what killed the saints 2 years ago and caused a house cleaning.

I hope I am wrong but I see Brooks being the cause of problems for the team in the future.

Billy I see you have selctive reading disorder. I figured I would name your problem so you would feel better about yourself.

If you read my last post again you will see a few key words you missed. It says \"I am not a basher of Brooks for no cause\".
