The question is does Brooks really just sit there on the sidelines or does the cameraman not show him doing the things you\'d like to see him do? My point is that if you\'re watching the game on TV surely you\'re aware that you aren\'t seeing everything that happens.

I have not seen Brooks review the formation sets in the Super Dome or on the Big Screen .

Not saying he does or does not , checking to see if someone has seen him do it .

Do you go to the games with your binoculars glued to Brooks or do you actually watch the game?

I tape the games on t.v. when I go to them .

It is interesting to see a game live then watch the game on tape later and listen to the commentators .

Do you go to the games with your binoculars glued to Brooks
Yes at times , and only because security seems unwilling to allow me to bring my telescope ....

This seems like we might be on to something here. Has anyone seen AB studying on the sidelines, while we are winning or losing? I suspect even hardcore supporters of AB would admit that he has a lot to learn about reading defenses and that he SHOULD be studying it between possessions.

I agree that those watchin on TV are not seeing everything, but I cannot seem to remember ever seeing this on the news or in the Dome. Like \'08 I am not saying it does or does not happen, I just never noticed as I am usually watching the game. Has anyone?

I can\'t recall if I\'ve ever seen him checkin\' out a polaroid. I have seen him in discussions (heated and otherwise) with the OC and with other players as well.

The point to all this is some people want to say Brooks doesn\'t care about winning or improving. He\'s done nothing but improve. I think his numbers fairly indicate that. If you\'re not speculating whether or not Brooks looks at the polaroids in an effort to say you don\'t think he cares then what are ya speculatin\' about?

Now that I think about it, I haven\'t seen ANY of the players checkin\' out polaroids. Has anyone else?

Can someone provide me with some evidence that Brooks can\'t read defenses? Not opinions, but real evidence.

Here\'s my evidence that Brooks CAN read defenses.

1. Threw only 8-interceptions all year against NFL defenses. It wasn\'t pee-wee or college defenses, it was NFL defenses.

2. Completed 60% of his passes against NFL defenses.


Do those 2 things not take intelligence? To me, not thowing int\'s and completing a high percentage of passes are the 2-most important things that show intelligence of a QB. What say the Brooks\' bashers?

Well, yeah, but did we ever see him lookin over those little polaroids? If we haven\'t seen that how can we be sure he knows what he\'s doing?
