Trotter to be released?

This \"BrooksMustGo\" attitude is pathetic. Get over the idea that he may/should be traded. If you firmly believe HE is the reason we haven\'t made the playoffs then YOU are crazy. We\'ve had no defense whatsoever. Let\'s fix the other side of the ball (i.e. stop the run and create turnovers), catch the ball on a more frequent basis (they are NFL receivers, right?), stop \"run, run, pass\" play calling, and PLEASE go down-field more often. If, after all of these are fixed, we still don\'t win, then we can talk about a QB change.
Until then, GET OVER IT!!!!!

Such hostility after just 9 posts. Maybe your parents should rethink your computer privileges or you should seriously switch to decaff, you\'re taking years off your life bud.

Again, watch out for that ulcer man.
And I guess the QB has no culpabilit, at all, ever, for poor performance?
Brooks problems are intangibles and suspect mental processes. He kills the team at key moments and then giggles about it on the sidelines.
My thought in trading him is that his numbers aren\'t bad. They are probably, in fact, good enough to entice some other team to give us a high draft pick so they can develop his endless \"potential\".

Last season we finished 18th in total defense. This hardly qualifies as no defense at all, I guess you were using hyperbole.
We finished 27th in run defense. This is bad and not a Brooks deal, but there was still a playoff team below us.
We finished 8th in pass defense. This is actually pretty good. Several playoff teams didn\'t do as well as we did against the pass.
So why is it that we cut any player that is good against the run to play coverage? I agree, this is a front office issue, but Brooks does not elevate his play. You never hear phrases like, \"Brooks makes players around him better\" or \"Brooks simply refused to lose.\"
It does seem that if one unit is supposed to be stronger, then it has to be the defense. Maybe it should (defense winning championships and all), but if so, why is the offense supposedly so talented? Offense is where the money is, offense is where the emphasis is.

catch the ball on a more frequent basis (they are NFL receivers, right?),
This is a straw man, the difference between Brooks passing yardage over the past 2 seasons is less than 30 yards. Horn did drop a pretty sure TD against Tampa, but then didn\'t Brooks fumbles have something to do with that loss too?

stop \"run, run, pass\" play calling, and PLEASE go down-field more often.
Maybe, maybe not. Going down field will require Brooks to hang in the pocket to deliver the football. Brooks for his entire career backs out of his protection or fails to notice the player lining up opposite him without anyone to pick up the block. I\'m not sure that we can go downfield regularly until Brooks learns to read a defense or stands in the pocket. I\'m not a big fan of all the playcalling either, but Brooks does pose some unique limitations. In the same way that you don\'t ask Peyton Manning to improvise a QB keeper to go 10+ yards, you don\'t ask Brooks to be patient or to stand in the pocket.

...did you see Manning show us how exposed we were to the past this past year? Besides if you can beat a team by running the ball... guess what teams will do \"run\". until you can stop the run... they will run it down our throats. Which means less passes so our pass defense goes up. Stop the run and watching them go all out and air assualt on us.

Hey steub12, don\'t get frustrated. I think that most of us feel the same as you. Nine posts or not we value your opinion.
