Brooks"I owned them pretty much the whole night with my eyes

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Agreed - but to say that his performance was without its distinct areas for improvement is also wrong. (I know you didn\'t say that, I\'m just making a statement) Same old situation Saintfan - Brooks is going to get pointed ...

Same old situation Saintfan - Brooks is going to get pointed at if he\'s not playing like a top five QB... and he should, we\'re paying him like one. We\'ve gotten rid of good players spefically for, or with the idea that, he will be THE man in N.O. for a long time.

You\'re likely to be less critical of Brooks, I\'m likely to be more critical... but I will say that Brooks should be getting less attention right now then the D, play calling, and O-line... maybe even special teams, which we also very unimpressive yesterday.

Brooks"I owned them pretty much the whole night with my eyes

I never pinned the whole loss on Brooks.
How anyone could read the statement \"Actually, I owned them pretty much the whole night with my eyes\" and not be embarrassed that this guy is our QB. That completely escapes me.

There is plenty of blame to go around. Duece also gets blame in my book, especially after that lame draw at the end of the game to try and give him his 100 yards.
But when your \"team-leader\" is smiling as your getting destroyed, and then says something that stupid after the game, it hard not to single him out.

The team looked like they didn\'t care. I can\'t help but think its a reflection of their leader\'s attitude, who looked like he didn\'t care either. If Brooks had 1/2 of Dan Marino\'s desire, he\'d be a top 3 QB in this league.

Whether we agree or disagree; its all for Him.

Brooks"I owned them pretty much the whole night with my eyes

As far as hiw \"owning\" them, maybe he did...there were a lot of open recievers and Brooks (and the rest of us) watched \'em drop pass after pass. As for Marino, all the heart in the world never won him a superbowl did it?

And you\'re right Whodat...people will point the finger at Brooks...whether he deserves it or not, because \"fans\" gotta blame SOMEbody, but anybody, and I mean ANYbody calling for \"BO-MAN\" after yesterday is simply not paying attention to what happened. I didn\'t see their corners do anything necessarilly special to tell the truth. They made some pretty good hits for sure, but Brooks damn sure gave our guys the oppurtunity to make plays. AB shouldn\'t be held responsible for the fact that they didn\'t.

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!

I think every person who was on the team plane is to blame for that loss.

I did not hear the comment or know how it was used but from seeing that comment posted here I would say Brooks is back to his old \"me, myself and I\" attitude. His comment should have been we did not play well as a team today. By saying what I read here he is telling me it was not his fault it was everyone elses fault they lost.

Brooks"I owned them pretty much the whole night with my eyes

Here\'s a transcript of the conversation between Haslett,Brooks,and McCarthy on the sideline right befor halftime when they were laughing it up and shaking hands while being down 21-3.

Haslett---Boy Aaron we look like crap out there don\'t we?

Aaron--We sure do coach(laughing)!

Haslett--Don\'t worry about it(laughing)! I\'m sure we will look even worse in the 2nd half.
You are going to be my man regardless of how we play,I\'m not going to let anyone get your job ok?(handshake between the two)

Aaron-- Thanks coach you\'re the greatest!

McCarthy-- Hey Aaron we\'re going to try and get you some plays where you can roll out to your left and get creamed and maybe put the ball on the ground deep in our territory.Maybe the Seahawks can recover it and you can get back to the sidelines and continue lauging it up with the rest of the boys on the bench.

Aaron -- Great coach! Try to get me some plays where Conwell,Horn,and Stallworth don\'t get in the way.Let\'s also stop giving it to Deuce!He keeps getting us the first down!

McCarthy--No problem Aaron we\'re working on that too!(laughing!)


See yall at the dome on sunday !

I don\'t think Brooks even understood the question about the defense being vulnerable because he said not at all,but then he said he owned them with his eyes.

Brooks always sounds ignorant when they interview him.

Some of you seriously have a problem. Brooks didn\'t play his best game neither did he play a poor game. When he play a great game some of you say it was all the receivers, and when he play a game like this one y\'all try to find ways to put it on his play.

I am curious, why don\'t you all who believe Brooks is not the right quarterback tell me who you will replace him with and tell me me how your guy will be better than brooks

Brooks"I owned them pretty much the whole night with my eyes

Most of the time when QB\'s screw up plays or throw interceptions,they go back to the sidelines and huddle with their backups and their offensive coordianator,and try to see how they can fix the problem.All you ever see Brooks doing is laughing and joking and drinking Gatorade.Brooks dosen\'t seem to be able to communicate well with teamates.I guess it\'s because he feels everyone is against him all the time.He even said in an interview that everyone steals the limelight from him,including his cousin Michael Vick.He feels threatened by his backups,He\'s afraid of constructive criticism,and he dosen\'t like to take blame for being indecisive with the football at times.He still brings up the fact that Allen Iverson stold the show when they were in highschool by winning the state championship for his school while Brooks had better numbers as a QB.He needs to let all that go and start worrying about AB,and make a name for himself instead of worrying about what everyone else is doing or has done.Stand up and be a leader.It\'s not going to hurt you to throw a block for your teamates every once in a while,and it\'s not going to hurt you to communicate with the rest of the offense.When we did so well in 2000,it was because he had Jeff Blake to communicate with,and players like Horn and Jake Reed,and Willie Jackson gave him confidence.When the leadership roll fell on his shoulders he couldn\'t handle it.Look at how vocal Jake Delhomme was being on the field in his comeback yesterday.He said when he got to Carolina,he was going to develop a good relationship with everyone on the team so they could communicate.Brooks needs to follow suit.
