We were all wrong. Brooks got benched tonight.

Question: When was the last time you saw an NFL team score 55 points? 55!!! I can\'t wait to hear Haslett\'s excuses tonight. A million dollars right now says it\'s injuries. There are exactly four problems with this team. Loomis, Haslett, Venturi, McCarthy. If I\'m Benson, I fire them all right now. Why not? Who\'s our linebackers coach? Really, could any position coach on our team do WORSE?

Billy\'s notes :

The ONLY PEOPLE talking about Brooks playing poorly THIS YEAR are a few memebers on here. Looks like to me that you are seeing something this year from Aaron that all the experts don\'t see. Are you that brilliant 08, or are all the experts just that stupid?

Brooks got benched ???? I wonder why ?????

I can\'t wait to hear Haslett\'s excuses tonight.-WhoDat

Yeah, maybe he and the coaching staff will take responsibility like he did last week as if he\'s never been responsible before. That\'s the trouble with this guy. He and his coaches decide who\'s gonna be on this team and then complains that they can\'t tackle and they make too many mental mistakes. I can see it once in a while but Haslett sounds like a broken record. If he and his staff are such lousy judges of talent then he needs to go...and soon.

I hope Benson saw this debacle...it\'s been a while since he was able to twirl that stupid parasol of his...

Haslett Post-Game
Promises to make \"whatever changes necessary\" for good of team. Seemed to imply that no one safe.

Note : Brooks first to be benched ......

Brooks is safe....for now. Haslett is the captain of the SS BrooksTanic, he\'ll wreck his career on that kid.

What it probably means is some coaches are getting canned in the next week or two to take the heat off Hazmatic. Was it just me, or did it look like he was giving Venturi a cussing on the sidelines tonight?

And with more injuries, what\'s he really going to do with players? Man the more I look at this the muddier it all seems to get.

08 I caught that too and have the same feeling. The last question was specifically about Brooks playing next week. Haslett did not give his \"brooks is god\" crap like he usually does.

I did not expect the blowout tonight otherwise I think my prediction would be really close. Next week Brooks will start but he may not get past the 1st QTR.

I think we will begin to see changes being made this week. Haslett is now in damage control mode in hopes of protecting his job. Saints front office is in damage control for next year season ticket sales. I think McCarthy is gone! I wish I was in the saints office to see if there are private meetings going on or if a few Admins are mysteriously out of the office a few days this week. They will be consulting with people close to the league looking for ideas.

There has not been a Team in the league that I can remember who has had so much potential yet played so so poorly. Right now the saints are the bottom feeders.

Not sure if Benson is the pull the plug in the middle of the season guy . History dictates he is the big bang kinda guy .

Kick open the door and blow them all away after the season is over kind of way of doing things .....

Agreed 08.

But I will go on record and say this. From top to bottom, from Loomis down to the lowest equipment guy on the totem pole, this MAY be the worst Saints team in 25 years. I say that for one reason. Never, and I mean never, have the Saints had close to this kind of talent. To be playing this poorly in unforgiveable. I didn\'t think this team would be much better than 8-8 at the start of the season. Right now, even that mark looks out of reach. You wanna talk about shock and awe... I feel like an Iraqi right now, watching my country getting absolutely destroyed.

Let me start by saying I was wrong about this team, unless there is some kind of miracle turn around. I highly doubt that will happen !! Right now it appears that we are the worst team in the league.

On defense injuries CANNOT be used as an excuse for playing that poorly. I think a good defensive coordinator can take ANY players and get them to play better than what our defense played last night. They looked absolutely lost!!

I have never seen a big of a melt down for an offense as I have this year. The offensive line changes are not working and the pass blocking is terrible. Deuce ran for some yards but overall our offensive line played terrible.

As bad as I feel for Haslett, he has no one to blame but himself. I feel no need to go to great lengths to bash this team, mainly because it will do no good, but I leave that to the professionals. I feel bad for the players and the fans.

I believe changes are neccessary across the board for the coaching staff and now hope they take place. The offense should get back to form with new coaching but this defense is sorely lacking in the secondary and at the linebacker position.

When things go bad for the Saints they go really bad. Right now they are about as bad as they get. I guess as a fan you have to take the good with the bad, but with the talent we have it is a tough pill to swallow.
