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

Some of brooks post game comments. The crap about owning the Seattle secondary with his eyes is an embarrassment


Q: When your team commits four turnovers, it’s tough to dig out of such a hole.
Aaron: "Oh, yeah. The main thing that Coach Haslett preached throughout preseason, and he will continue to do it throughout the season, is that when you lose the turnover ratio, there’s a high percentage that you’re going to lose the game. We turned the ball over way too many times, very excessively. That’s uncharacteristic of this offense. That’s something we’ve really got to take care of."
Q: What was the impact of not scoring a touchdown early in the game when the offense threatened deep in Seattle territory?
Aaron: "That killed us. That killed us all day. We kept putting ourselves in bad situations. It’s hard for our offensive coordinator [Mike McCarthy] to call plays when you’re first-and-15, second-and-15, third-and-10 when you’re in a long [yardage] situation where the defense can sit back on you. Today we made it really, really hard on ourselves, and that’s what we can’t do. That’s something I won’t tolerate. I’m quite sure the coaches won’t. So we’re going to look into this-not point fingers-but we’re going to get together and solve this so we have a much better outcome next week."

Q: How will you tighten up factors such as dropped passes and overthrown passes before the Houston game next week?
Aaron: "I hate to say it in a manner of 'I kind of saw it coming', but I don’t think we practiced as well as we should have during the course of the week. Donte [Stallworth] didn’t get as many reps because of his lingering injury. I’m quite sure he would like to have this game over again. Besides that, as a team, this was very uncharacteristic of our offense. To only score one touchdown when their defense is really just playing it safe, for us it’s really unacceptable. We’re a much better team than this offensively. I thought the defense did a fine job. We just didn’t play well, so we’ve got to go back to the drawing board. We’ve got to talk about this very seriously, very seriously."

Q: You were able to prepare for this game longer than any other game.
Aaron: "We prepared for it much longer. That means we’re supposed to be twice as prepared for it. I thought we were prepared for the game, but we just didn’t execute during the course of the game. This is an emotional game, and we got on the low end of the emotion. We just couldn’t really bounce back, and that’s attributable to turnovers and penalties. Like I said, [it’s] uncharacteristic of us."

Q: Did Seattle’s young secondary looked vulnerable?
Aaron: "Not at all, not at all. Actually, I owned them pretty much the whole night with my eyes, but we just didn’t convert. We had a couple of dropped passes, we had a lot of penalties, I didn’t hold on to the ball when I should have. Nothing they did really scared us out of what we did. The few adjustments we made, we just didn’t execute.".

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

Before the game yesterday, Brooks said during an interview that it was the job of each individual on the team to \"carry this ball club\". This response came after he was asked if this was the year he was ready to carry the team if he had to.
Also, I still say had Brooks thrown a block on the Michael Lewis reverse yesterday that Lewis would have gained a few yards and gotten out of bounds.

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

Somehow I knew there would be people in here blamin yesterday on Brooks...EVEN after watching our offensive line fail most of the day in both run and pass blocking...EVEN after watching our veteran center cost us a turnover, and EVEN after watching our recievers drop more balls than the NIxon Administration...somehow I knew there would still be people ignorant enough to blame this game on Brooks, and his post game comments had nothing to do with it. It\'s like I said last year...it wasn\'t necessarilly that the fair weather fans wanted Delhomme (congrats to him for a big win yesterday), it\'s that they (you people) want anyone but Brooks...to the degree that you\'d have him yanked when his performance CLEARLY wasn\'t the issue.

What game were you watching?
Nobody\'s blaming the whole disaster on Brooks but you must admit he played terrible.
He couldn\'t hit his WR\'s in stride, showed little emotion and was smiling his ass off in the 4th quarter while we being served a big fat shiit sandwich.I\'ve taken up for him so many times I can\'t count, but he sucked yesterday every bit as much as the OL.
Our team is lifeless, and his performance CLEARLY sucked.

Define \"CLEARLY SUCKED\" tweeky.

Stallworth pointed an accusatory finger at himself.

\"I dropped five balls, some at crucial times,\" he said. \"If I make those catches, we have a better shot of winning the game.\"

As much as I hate name calling, you\'re post screaming for \"BO-MAN\" makes . I\'m not saying Brooks set the world on fire, but he didn\'t make Jerry snap that ball, and he didn\'t make Lewis fumble, and anybody who watched that game without a chip on their shoulder against Brooks could easily see the dropped passes, and it was HARDLY Brooks\' fault that the Seahawks ran the ball down our throats all day.

Why, exactly, are you callin\' Brooks a \"Looozer\"? Tell me what he did in the game that warrants your saying that. Go ahead...tell me.

attack the game not the members, we all know better.

I stated why he was a LOSER in my previous post. you\'d have seen it. I\'ll re-post it for you…
I\'ll type it for you, so you\'ll understand,
He was smiling his ass off in the 4th quarter while we being served a big fat shiit sandwich
This team is lifeless, and he aint helpin a bit.

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

Brooks alone did not cost us the game, but he sure as hell did not do much to win it either.

As I said yesterday right after the game ended, besides Brooks\' being Brooks (second guessing himself, throwing when he should have tucked and run, running when he should have thrown, miserably missing open receivers and too often throwing into double coverage), our offensive line looked horribly ineffective and pourous, our receivers dropped too many passes that they should have held on to, the misscommunication on the fumbled snap was pitifully amateuristic, really bad play calling -- too many short yardage passes and runs up the middle in long yardage situations and of course, Brooks running away from that reverse play that resulted in the fumble insteas of throwing a block like he was supposed to and damn well should have done, all contributed to an embarrassing loss. At least it was not a nationally televised game.

People ***** every year, myself included, about why the SAINTS are not given more TV games. Flat out, it\'s because they are so unpredictable. You can never really count on them to show up. They may play a great game one week, but then look like a bottom of the barrel Division II team the next. The networks want competitive games that will be exciting, even if one team is off a little. But the SAINTS are far to prone to implode and just stink up the place. Hell, even SAINTS fans fans were turning off the game yesterday. Can you imagine how bad the ratings would have been everywhere else except Seattle???

Bottom line: the SAINTS sucked -- collectively. There were very few high points to speak of in yesterday\'s game. So, the coaches better damn well get off their asses and do whatever it takes to get their chosen player to start playing like a team soon or the season really will be over. It ain\'t over yet, but it will be if this goes on for another 4 or 5 weeks.

That\'s just my opinion, but I\'m damn sure sticking by it, at least for now!

Go SAINTS!!!!!

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

Saintfan, on this one, we agree completely. The defense, O-line, and play calling are all far more to blame for that loss than Brooks. I will also say that I was pleasantly surprised to see Brooks’ completion percentage up around 65%. As you well know his efficiency has been one of my major problems and to see that getting better is nice.

On the flip side, he does continue to demonstrate to me at least why he isn’t really suited for our offense. He held the ball and didn’t get it out quickly. He didn’t seem to go through the progressions well or look off receivers. He appeared to be telegraphing passes to me and he’s throwing into coverage getting our receivers hit hard. Honestly, I don’t know how much of that is Brooks making poor decisions, and how much is McCarthy’s system. I didn\'t see a whole lot of stepping up and being a leader either. I saw two give-aways that were clearly his fault, and a miscommunication with the center (blame who you will on that one b/c I have no idea whose fault it was).

In any case, Brooks’ play yesterday was neither spectacular nor terrible. I’d like to see him take better care of the football and get the ball out quickly to his receivers in a way that they can catch it and run with it. Still overall not a bad showing. Not a great one either.

I\'m not about to say Brooks set the world on fire, but I\'m not about to blame a pittiful performance by the \"TEAM\" on him either. Brooks play was serviceable to be sure. tweeky\'s completey ignorant \"BO-MAN\" post is just too much. Joe and tweeky will both have to forgive my earlier comment, but jeesh tweeky were you actually watching all the players on the field or not? How anyone with a clue could in their \"right\" mind pin yesterday on Brooks\' shoulders completely escapes me.
