Saints WR Joe Horn is saying that his comments criticizing the front office for letting WR coach Hubbard Alexander go is water under the bridge and, given time to reflect, he is looking forward to working with new WR coach Jimmy Robinson.

The way we hear it, the Saints believe they have the pieces in place to reach the playoffs next season and are counting on the frustration of the past two years to serve as motivation for the 2004 season.

Also

QB Aaron Brooks quietly put up monster numbers — 3,546 yards, 24 TDs vs. eight INTs, 88.8 QB rating — last season, but he still was considered a disappointment because of his inability to make big plays in crunch time and his nasty habit of fumbling. Considering those stats, however, the Saints aren’t about to make a change at quarterback, and sources say there isn’t much the team can do to help his development. Brooks missed time last offseason as he recovered from surgery on his right (throwing) shoulder, and there are hopes that he will be more efficient next season. But there is little Brooks can do to work on his fumbling problems and even less he can do to improve his leadership in the offseason. We’re told the Saints will push him to come into camp in tip-top shape and try to lead by example in offseason workouts to better establish himself as the team’s unquestioned leader.

Am I the only one noticing that the emporer has no clothes here?
Isn\'t this the same thing they were plugging last off-season. \"Joe Montana will spend one on one time with Brooks on the issues of leadership and consistency.\"
Is every off-season going to be a new emphasis on \"Brooks becomes the leader of this team.\"?

Still behind Hasselbeck I see .

Matt Hasselbeck SEA 3841 513 313 26 15 80 88.8
Aaron Brooks NO 3546 518 306 24 8 76 88.8

Do not forget leadership school in the off season last year .

\"and sources say there isn’t much the team can do to help his development\"
Thats kind of an odd statement isn\'t it?
Is it he\'s peaked? Or this staff will be unable to get anything else out of him?

Danno, That had me scratching my head too. I wish there was some real live New Orleans media that even had a phone number to the training facility.

Seems like every other team in the league has some inside scoop every now and then, I wish someone could confirm this stuff.

Brooks is not a real cerebral player , he plays the game as the game was played 20 years ago . Similar to sandlot football .

Brooks reacts to the defense , he does not make the defense react to him .

If you have ever heard a commentator say in reference to a quarterback \" he is a real student of the game \" , this is not Brooks .

Brooks is a reactionary quarterback .

From E.S.P.N.

\"I don\'t know how you can win a conference championship game throwing just 14 passes, but God bless (Carolina quarterback) Jake Delhomme, he did it. It\'s got to kill the fans in New Orleans, who always wanted to see the kid play. And it ought to kill the Saints people, too. They paid a lot of money for (Aaron) Brooks and, when it comes to leadership, he isn\'t nearly there yet with Delhomme.\"

You can\'t, unless you design your team around a strong defense and a strong running game, therby minimizing the necessity of a superior QB.. If you do that even one of our old Billy Joe\'s could go to the SB.

Jake is simply another cog in a well oiled machine.
He wouldn\'t have won 7 games with the 2003 Saints.

If this is the case, then why not trade Brooks for Urlacher, pick up Champ Bailey in free agency and trade up to get Sean Taylor at Safety. Then we could either get the Billy Joes back or let Bauman hand off to Deuce all next season. Why bother passing if the QB is truly disposable?
