The definitive Brooks/Delhomme post!!!!!

Dammit!!!.....I know he isn't the best statistically and I know I don't get the most respect around here because I am still a relative newbie....but I get so mad and embarrassed as a Saints fan when I read about Jake Delhomme's new found "greatness"!

I always thought Jake was going to be a really good QB and always wanted to see him start (Yes I could be considered a Delhommite BillyC!)......

BUT I'VE HAD ENOUGH!!!!!

I love the Saints...always have and always will....and I want to see New England beat the living hell out of the Panthers on Sunday.....

I am sick of hearing about our managements mistakes....the Saints come first....what might have been comes second.

Whoever isn't a New Orleans Saint (or a Saints fan) can go themselves (especially if in the same division)!!!!

Here's to a return to 2000 form in 2004!.....And if it happens....it'll be because Aaron Brooks was just as pissed as me about reading about Jake all the time!

Thanks Jake...you just awoke a sleeping giant and his name is the original Aaron Brooks!....The guy who took your starting job after Blake went down...and you just lit a fire under him....God help the NFC next year!

I am rolling on the floor laughing.

You must be a relative newby to the organization as well as this board if you can say something like that. This organization\'s history is DEFINED by management mistakes.

Here\'s a return to the 2000 form? That\'s what you\'re looking for? A ten win season and second round loss in the playoffs?

This kind of stuff makes me wonder if any of you guys wonder why new people don\'t post on the board. Ease up on the new people.

The definitive Brooks/Delhomme post!!!!!

WhoDat, you missed the entire point of my post.

First off I am insulted by your comment about me having to be a newbie to the organization. Obviously I am a newbie to the message board as I have only posted 20 times, but I have loved the Saints for over half my life. Granted I am only 25 but 15+ years is still a long time.

The point I am making here is that so many people are stuck on the fact that Jake is in the Super Bowl and he WAS on our team.

Well unfortuantely he isn\'t on our team anymore. We should be concentrating on what we have and how we can improve it to win our own Super Bowl.

As for the comment to our 2000 form: First off it certainly is an improvement to make it to the 2nd round and lose than not make it to the plaoffs to begin with. Secondly, that was the year we came out and surprised everyone in dethroning the \"mighty\" Rams. That was the year our team played to potential and beyond!

I posted my posts as I was getting extremely frustrated about hearing about Jake. As Saints fans we have to get behind our organization even if they do pull stupid mistakes on a regular basis.

I know the replies I will probably get....oh your just satisfied with mediocrity (I AM NOT), We had different players in 2000 (NO EXCUSE...work with what you have to get results now via improved coaching and playcalling)....and so on.

As for ColdFusions comment, that was the reason I barely post....I always see posters get into these kind of arguments. I was simply trying to rally the troops around our Saints and quit harping on Jake. We don\'t need the kind of fan support the Arizona Cardinals have!

So with that, I hope you better understand my explanation (as I hope everyone else does....except BillyC who seems to agree with me).

GEAUX SAINTS!...Here\'s to us pulling a Panthers in 2004-05. In 1997 I said my San Antonio Spurs would win a title within 5 years. They won 2 titles in those enxt 6 years. I also said within 10 years the Saints would bring home the Lombardi.......3 years and counting!!!

I\'m not speaking for WhoDat, but here\'s my view on the subject. I\'m sorry that you feel insulted by ANYONE on here. But, I really don\'t see what\'s insulting about being called a \"newbie.\" As a long suffering Saints fan that\'s probably one of the nicest things that someone\'s ever said to me.

I can almost assure you that WhoDat wasn\'t trying to insult you. I think WhoDat was just questioning your logic and whether you are a \"newbie\" to the board or not, I think he has the right to do that as long as he\'s not insulting you.

No where in the rules have I read that new members coudn\'t be questioned. Everyone here is considerate of folks feelings. Except me, but that\'s another story.

Seriously though, he wasn\'t insulting you. Tell the man WhoDat that you were only playing around. --LOL

alsaints113 -- Welcome to the board. I like what you\'ve been posting. Keep it up. We need more just like you. Give these guys hell.

The definitive Brooks/Delhomme post!!!!!

I don\'t mind being called a newbie to the board because I am and I would call newbies newbies too if I was here as long as Whodat and some other posters. What I took offens to was being called a newbie to the Saints organization. Anyway, I tried as best I could to unite the Brooks lovers and Jake lovers under one Saints banner but it seems most people are set in their ways. Thanks for the welcome and compliment on my posts Billy. One last comment, in another thred, WhoDat commented on all the \"ifs\" I put in my most recent post there.

QUESTION: I think the Jake lovers are milking the Ifs. It\'s better in my opinion to ponder what your team will do next year than to ponder what they might have done 2 years ago. Get with the times people. Here\'s to 2004-05....the year of the Saints and the year Brooks shuts all the naysayers up. He\'ll be motivated because I\'m sure he\'s sick of hearing about Jake too. And if he\'s traded so we can get Eli (which I doubt) than I\'ll support his replacement and not him (just as I do with Brooks and Jake now)

alsaints113,

I agree the Jake stuff is annoying. He\'s not on our team, and so discussing him isn\'t terribly interesting to me. However, the best way to deal with your distaste for the subject (unless you are going to make an argument), is to ignore it. I for one am not going to discuss Jake, nor Jake versus Aaron for that matter. However, many others seem to be enjoying that discussion, so let them discuss.

As for the attitude of various members, I\'ve said it before, and I\'ll say it again: they\'re all annoying in their own special way.

Don\'t take it personally. Everyone here is a Saints lover; it is simply the case that everyone expresses it a bit differently.

If everyone were so easily unified by a rally cry for the future of our team (something we all want to be good), then there would be very few posts here, and it wouldn\'t be anywhere near as interesting.

I\'ll tell you what though, you and I will be rooting for the success of the SAINTS\' QB next year, and not some other guy who is wearing teal (yikes, that is teal isn\'t it?).

"... I was beating them with my eyes the whole game..." - Aaron Brooks :cool:
