This entire administration is a joke. We gave up the playoffs because our QB has a fragile ego.

To all who doubted Jake, eat a big plate of crow.

We would have waltzed into the playoffs if Haslett wasn't so stubborn two years ago.

We blew it.

Let me add that if Haslett really thought an injured Brooks was still the better option it just shows how clueless he really is.
Guess that Jake Conspiracy theory is getting some validation ...... ;)

Haslett tanked the season due to Brooks fragile ego , and people wonder about those players that quit on Hazbeen and those he deems cancerous .

Who cares, Duece and Aaron were both banged up at the end of 2002, and the defense was horrible. Even if the Saints would have stumbled into the playoffs, they would have been blown out in the first round.

I love the logic some Jake supporters use, during AB and Jake debates.

Aaron, Saints 8-8.

Jake, Panthers 11-5.

Jake is better.

How about

Duece, Saints 8-8.

Stephen Davis, Panthers 11-5.

Davis is better.

Hindsight is always 20/20 and I\'m sure Jim Haslett is kicking himself in the cahonies right now. Who cares? I care. As a Saints fan, everyone should be happy they at least make the playoffs and Haz screwed us out of it by letting Brooks play hurt and not giving Jake the chance. Now Jake is showing what he can do as a field general. I, for one, I\'m extremely happy for what Jake is doing (and proving) in Carolina. It just chaps my hide that he was never given that opportunity in New Orleans.

Jake lights up the Saints boards

Board across board the point is being made :

Jake will be one of four QB\'s playing next week
But wasn\'t good enough to play for an injured AB last year. What a joke this organization is.
Who cares ??? Would that question exclude those making these posts ???

Jake Delhomme
What in the world was on the New Orleans coaches mine.
When Brooks went down hurt last year, Haz and Company
kept Brooks in the game saying that it is nothing wrong with the guy. But after the season Brooks have surgury that requires him to go too New York to have.

If Haz would have put Delhomme in the game when Brooks
was throwing all those bad passes and when they new the guy was playing hurt it is no telling where this team would have went last year!

That is one reason why Haz need to go. Saying that it is nothing wrong with Brooks but at the end of the season he has surgury. You don\'t know when this guy is telling you the truth.
Who cares ??

Most likely anyone that can see beyond the quarterback comparison to some other glaring problems .

Like Hasletts commitment to winning in New Orleans .
Hasletts ability to judge talent on the football field .
And how big of a liar is Haslett .

Who cares ?? Any Saints fan that wants to see the Saints in the play offs .......

It at least has to make you wonder. I mean, what was Haslett thinking?

At the beginning of the season (\'02) he comes out talking about how happy he is about the Saints QB situation. He says that Aaron will be a star and that Jake could start a lot of other places in the league. What we saw from Jake in preseason and Aaron in the first 7 games certainly supported that claim.

Fast forward two months and Brooks is a better option than Delhomme with an injury to his throwing arm that is clearly effecting his throwing motion and velocity? Sounds like Haslett is talking out of both sides of his mouth. Jake is good enough to start a lot of places in this league... Aaron at 70% or worse is a better option than Delhomme.... WHAT?!

I guess maybe that would be true if Brooks were a Peyton Manning type player, or had shown the sucess and built the legend that Favre has. But that\'s not the case. Delhomme\'s year this year in his FIRST as a starter was about as good as Brooks\' year, and this was his third FULL year as a starter.

That\'s fine by me. The further Delhomme goes and the more praise he receives the higher the pressure on Haslett to suceed or else.

Hey Who Dat

Got one question for you , are you feeling wrong ???

The bottom line here \"08\", and without sinking to a sandlot mentality, is that YOU and WHODAT among others were quite simply W-R-O-N-G about the great Jake Delhome. Read your old posts where you were slamming Brooks and screaming at the top of your lungs for Delhome. Note the parts where ya\'ll just KNEW Haz wasn\'t starting Jake for personal reasons.

Jake has failed to make the starting lineup for another team. Now you\'re even trying to blame it on his accent ?!? If you or Whodat or the rest of the Brooks bashers gave Aaron one third the credit you give Delhome you\'d be forced to realize he\'s a better QB. Be a man and admit you were wrong. You can\'t crawfish your way out of this one. You were WRONG. Now, admit it and lets move on.
Just wondering , because I am not feeling wrong are you ???...... :P

This one is hysterical

Benson has to be rubbing his head. He paid six million year for Brooks. Had Jake for a lot less. Brooks in the last two years is 17-15. Jake in his first year 13-5. Haslett said Bouman was just as good as Jake but with a stronger arm. Jake is going to the NFC Championship game Bouman is still a back up. While change that 12-5 as a starter did start the first game yet came in it win it.
In four year at LSU Saban has a Champion and dear old Haslett is lucky to have a winning season.
Oh by theway ESPN said Jake is good enough to win a Super Bowl.
Haslett knows how to elvaulate talent like I know how to fly a jet. Just look at all the players he let go that is in the playoffs. Delhumme to Smith Carolina wins. Benson what the H_ll I\'m I paying for. I can tell you Arron Stat Brooks for sure not NFC Champioship game Delhumme. Draft Eli he knows more about football then Benson whole staff. And for sure knew more than Brooks does when he left High School.
Lead or get out of the way Jaking is leading Brooks is sitting at home out of the way.

Jake plays well for what he is asked to do. I\'ll give Jake credit where credit is due. But, let\'s be honest, Jake isn\'t asked to do that much. Bill Parcells says that the less you have to rely on the QB, the better off you are. It seems like John Fox follows that same belief.

The Panthers seem to be a team of destiny and someone seems to make a play when they need it. I thought their luck would have run out a long time ago, but they are still on the \"magical mystery tour.\"

Anyway, y\'all can look at the Panther\'s record and proclaim Jake\'s greatness and compare him to Brooks, but Jake\'s done something that it took Peyton 6-years to do. So, instead of comparing him to Brooks, let\'s compare him to Peyton. That\'s fair, RIGHT?

Not takin\' anything away from Delhomme 08, but you continue to bring it up so here we go again...

Jake failed to crack the starting lineup in New Orleans...you say it was a conspiracy...I say it was definately not a conspiracy. Jake also failed to crack the starting lineup in NFL Europe as I recall. He was also undrafted. The great Bill Parcells had a chance to sign him last year and, being the great coach and great judge of talent we all know him to be opted not to.

Even his current coach didn\'t have him in the starting lineup at the beginning of the year. Having said all that, I think Jake has done an exceptional job this year. He\'s also playing on a team with an incredible defense...at team that gets more breaks than Evil Kenieval. Carolina was a dropped pass (Tory Holt I think it was) from going home. They\'ve been on the brink all year. To their credit they keep on winning, and to his creadit Jake seems to be getting better and better...I\'m all about credit where credit is due...but why do you think it took Jake so long?

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!
