I know Aaron Brooks is going to be the topic of disscusion for some time. I still believe that Brooks should be the QB. Brooks definately cost us the game today and I understand that fans are going to be bashing this guy to no end, like they have been doing for some time.

Brooks hasn\'t had a bad year. He has had a bad year as far as fumbles have gone. Brooks will be the QB next year, no matter who the coach is. Write it down. Maybe that will go on the greatest hit. But, I don\'t think so.

Hey, BillyC...with all due respect, do you listen to yourself when you spout nonsense like this? Either your unwillingness to see Brooks for what he is (or isn\'t) is pure stubborness I\'ve read many of your posts and you seem like a bright guy. Stop waving the AB flag and come to your senses.

If I didn\'t know better I\'d swear you\'re really Jim Haslett lurking around here trying to justify the pathetic decision to keep Brooks in there. And forget the \"you don\'t know anything about football\" retorts...they\'re as tiresome

If Brooks is the Saints future, the cellar is the place we\'ll be for some time to come.

Mr. Blake -- I\'ve heard this samething said about so many QB\'s early in their careers that it\'s not even funny. I\'m no more knowledgeable than anyone else. Playing musical chairs at QB\'s have absolutely killed teams over the years.

If Brooks get\'s cut, he will be starting somewhere. Maybe Carolina or Tampa Bay. That would be real nice huh?

More likely Arizona or Chicago. Look, the guy plays in a dome...it rarely rains inside the Superdome yet he finds a way let a ball simply slip out of his hand. Could this be another injury he\'s keeping quiet about? Thumb? Finger? Shoulder again? Who knows but he\'s been known to hide things to keep his starting job. Remember how he got the job in the first place?

As far as him playing for TB or Carolina, you act as if he\'s someone to be feared. The only thing about Brooks that I fear is that New Orleans will keep him until his contract expires (or we do!).

So, we cut Brooks because of his fumbling problem this year? That\'s interesting. Brooks completed 66.9 % of his passes and 1-TD and 0-Ints. He also threw another beautiful TD pass to Joe Horn, which he dropped.

However, Brooks fumbles cost us the game. But, give the Buc\'s defense some credit for creating 2-of those fumbles. Also give the Bucs defense some credit for shutting down Deuce McAllister.

Brooks has improved in many areas this year and this fumbling thing has never been a big problem. Do you not think this can be corrected? Or, we can just start cutting every QB in their 3rd year as a starter?

Just a question:

Was Tampa able to shut Deuce down because they weren\'t afraid of Brooks beating them in the air?

Just curious, I didn\'t see the game or the coverages so anyone who did, please let me know.

No, that wasn\'t the case at all. Brooks was killing them through the air, but then the Bucs got the lead and pinned their ears back and really applied a lot of pressure on Brooks.
