What is Brooks' margin for error?

08,

I like Haz to Buffalo for a 1st rounder.

I like the Brooks trade, I\'m pulling for San Diego. Partly because if he goes to Phoenix this will be the headline. \"New QB choked with his own jock, Jeff Blake arrested\" But mainly because with even an average QB, Tomlinson will become an even more dominant rusher/receiver. Starting with a rookie in San Diego is just going to put a lot more wear and tear on LaDanian that a veteran QB would help with. Then even by taking our 1st rounder, the Chargers are in great position to take any number of outstanding receivers in this year\'s draft class.

I think a Brunell signing is a no brainer, and picking up Eli would be a fan\'s dream.

Hiring Coughlin--not a good idea. It would be like dropping a vial of Ebola in our locker room. I\'d rather try and get Lovie Smith before Atlanta gets him or Romeo Crennell from New England. We could absolutely rock with either of those guys.

My personal choice :

Al Saunders - asst. head coach-offensive coordinator; Born February 1, 1947, London, England, lives in Overland Park, Kan. Wide receiver-defensive back San Jose State 1966-68. No pro playing experience. College coach: Southern California 1970-71, Missouri 1972, Utah State 1973-75, California 1976-1981, Tennessee 1982. Pro coach: San Diego Chargers 1983-88 (head coach 1986-88), Kansas City Chiefs 1989-1998, St. Louis Rams 1999-2000, rejoined Chiefs in 2001.

Benson at this point is going to have to have a certain comfort zone to pull this off and Coughlin might just be the guy he is comfortable with .

Preach On 08!

Brooks is making this trade seem more and more plausible all the time.

The Delhomme bandwagon made it through the cold mountain winter pass .

The Brooks bandwagons seem to die in the cold winter months of December , similar to the Donner family wagon .

It is December , and Brooks the choke artist , will make his dreaded appearance somewhere around the Dallas game if it still matters . Or should I say he will loose his grip on the situation ..... :P

Whatever happened to that Buck kid anyway? He had a pretty big arm as I recall.

Maybe he could tutor Eli? :casstet:

If this were hockey, one of you would have traded Brooks for a puck bag and two litres of gas for the team bus.

I think it is safe to say that we\'re not going to trade Brooks, especially not after this season. His stats (other than the fumbles) have shown dramatic increase. On paper he looks pretty good. The fact that he is playing well might just as well hurt his trade value. People would wonder why we were in such a hurry to get rid of him.

I can only imagine the agony that the new Governor Blanco is going to put on Benson if the Saints go 8-8 and do not make any changes , and he goes looking for state aid .

The most amusing decisions are yet too come ...................

That would be what , one game less then last year with the new facility .

I can hear it now :

Benson : We need a new stadium ....

Blanco : You need linebackers and cornerbacks , not a new stadium .

08-- I hope you\'re not really pinning your hopes on governor Blanco bringing Eli Manning to New Orleans. You should just resign yourself to the fact that all the coaches and Aaron Brooks will be back next year. Just ask WhoDat, he\'ll tell ya

Hey BMG ........

COUGHLIN COULD BE HAMPERED BY REP

As word continues to circulate regarding the possible ultimate destination of former Jags coach Tom Coughlin, there\'s growing concern that his reputation as a taskmaster could make it hard to keep and/or attract free agents.

\"Players don\'t want to deal with him,\" said a league source.

Coughlin typically is regarded as a strict disciplinarian. Unlike Bill Parcells (with whom Coughlin coached in New York more than a decade ago), Coughlin doesn\'t bring charm to the equation along with the chutzpah.

Plus, Coughlin\'s desire to control a team\'s football operations could be problematic. As we reported last week, rumors linking him to the coming Giants vacancy have sputtered in light of the fact that many league insiders believe that Coughlin won\'t be able to work with G.M. Ernie Accorsi.

The Saints remain a possibility for Coughlin -- and you can bet that Joe Horn\'s cell phone will be crammed not under a goal post but into his ass crack if he tries a stunt like that on Coughlin\'s watch.
