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

I am not calling for Brooks to be benched or cut nor am I saying that any or all of our past and present back-ups are better than him. All I\'m trying to say is that Brooks, at times obviously lacks the mental and emotional drive to be the team leader we need him to be.

My opinion of why he hasn\'t given it his all at times last season (particularly late in the season -- and yes I know he was hurt) and during the pre-season and last week\'s game is that he doesn\'t have enough incentive to do so. He knows and Haz has proven that he won\'t be pulled -- NO MATTER WHAT. Not if he\'s hurt, not if he screws up and certainly not if he he just laughs off bone-headed goofs and missed opportunities.

To me, he is not showing the leadership qualities that Haz has eluded he should have -- he\'s got a huge contract, no more so-called distractions from people like Turley that were \'bad\' for the team, but also provided some leadership and got the team fired up.

We need leaders! Haz has obviously not made it clear that that is what a QB is supposed to be -- a leader.

I know Brooks put up some fantastic numbers last year. I was pleased as could be to see them too. No one would be happier than me to see him do it again. But I\'ll still be pissed if he does it with the same kind of flipant attitude he has displayed in the past.

And if you read my posts, it is very easy to see that I do not put all of the blame on Brooks\' head. I give credit where credit is do, but I also call out those that don\'t play NFL-caliber football, i.e. poor tackers, linemen that can\'t stop a rush, receivers that consistently drop passes, butter fingered players, etc. But most of all, I call out Haz forletting his players get away with sub-par outings.

If a kid acts up in school, breaks the law or just has a bad attitude in general, it\'s as much the parents\' fault for letting the kid get away with it as it is the kid\'s. Haz need to crack the whip a little more and maybe, just maybe his charges will learn that anything less than 100% is unacceptable.

One last thing, if I didn\'t care so much about this team and only want what is best for them and all of us fans, I wouldn\'t have wasted so much time and emotional effort rooting for them all these years and I certainly would be wasting time posting here. I do it because I love this team, even though they can really T me off at times.

Go SAINTS!!!!!

LoooooooooZer!

WTF does that mean? Owned them with his eyes?

BO-MAN!
BO-MAN!
BO-MAN!
BO-MAN!

BO-MAN!
BO-MAN!
BO-MAN!
How in the heck does one \"mis-construe\" that? I don\'t care much for watching Greg Maddox constantly pickin his nose in the dugout, but it doesn\'t mean he can\'t pitch either.

Look tweeky, don\'t take my word for it, and don\'t believe all the \"designed for ratings\" comments you hear all the \"experts\" puking up on sportscenter either. Do your best not to be swayed by the \"anyone but Brooks crowd\" while you\'re at it, and listen to what the players say. Go from there. And don\'t come in here posting \"BO-MAN\" nonsense after a loss -- a game in which Aaron Brooks played pretty darn good considering the entire T-E-A-M was necessarilly flat -- and expect that you won\'t get called to the carpet for it by someone like me who see\'s that as an \"a-typical\" overreaction.

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!

1st off, I\'ll come in here and post any damn thing I want.
2nd- \"the whole team was flat\" Did you read any of my posts or did you just intend to come across as a sanctimonious expert who\'s \"above it all\". My comments were directed at his stupid attitude. My whole point is that I think the team may be flat because he doesn\'t give a .... Nevermind. I\'m not going through this again. Read my posts again and maybe the light in your head will go off.
\"I owned them pretty much the whole night with my eyes\"????
Just how stupid and embarrassing is that? Especially after they just whooped your asss.
He should be benched or fined just for that stupidity. The Seattle boards are laughin their assses off at that comment, as are many of my Saint friends.
Therfore my BO-MAN chant. But I\'ll honor your wishes as the moderator and won\'t chant BO-MAN any more.

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

It\'s hard for me to understand what Brooks was talking about with that comment, but I\'m going to guess that he meant -- I could SEE open receivers but they either didn\'t hold on to the ball or my throws were off. Think about it. He said owned them with his eyes not the results. How can you own someone with your eyes unless he was saying that the passes were there , we just didn\'t get it done?

Personally i think it was his smile!

LOL -- Who knows what he was talking about. Hang in there Tweeky. I know you have been a Brooks supporter and it\'s understandable to be pissed off about that statement after we lost the game. Losing brings everything into question. If the Saints would have won, Brooks could have said he owned them with is arm pits and everyone would have laughed it off. Well, most everyone.

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

Dude -- I don\'t moderate a thing. I just post news when I can find something that hasn\'t been posted already. And yes, you can post anything you like, but you can\'t expect not to be called out for it by people who recognize it as a typical overreaction. So post that junk all day if it helps you sleep at night, but Whodat will tell ya I won\'t let it get by. If you were to watch the game again, you\'d see that Brooks had open receivers all day...THEY JUST KEPT DROPPING THE PASSES...and if you read their post game comments you can then take THEIR word for it...NOT MINE. Their defense didn\'t kick anyone\'s \"asss\" as you put it. The Saints beat themselves...but again, don\'t take MY word for it...read the players comments and make an intelligent statement regarding what was said by the people that were actually on the field.

I have never considered myself an \"expert\" and have never attempted to pass myself off as one by any means at all. I watch the games without any pre-conceived notions. Tell ya what, for someone who posts off the cuff stuff like \"BO-MAN\" you sure do get offended easily. You may not like Brooks\' smile, and there may very well be nothing you can do about it, and this may very well be the end of the discussion. ...or maybe it won\'t. You have about as much control over that as you do Brooks\' smile. Man, life sure can suck sometimes can\'t it?

I\'m not so sure you oughta be complaining about someone\'s attitude one way or the other, but as Dennis Miller once said, \"that\'s just my opinion. I could be wrong\"
