I don\'t know if any of you are listening to this show or not, if you\'re not, you are really missing out.

Here\'s a recap:

Peter King -- Said Saints have one of the best defensive lines in the league. Like Bellichick, Haslett understands it\'s rare to not have injuries on the D-line during the course of a 16-game season. You must have guys that can step in and still continue to generate a pass rush. Was skeptical of teams that bring in too many free agents. It can cause team chemistry problems. Hard to get players to gel.

On Aaron Brooks -- Says Aaron is an extremly talented QB. He needs to prove that he is a guy that the team can count on in the 4th quarter when the game is on the line. Needs to prove when the game is on the line that he will not hurt the team.

Says he thought Tampa was the most improved team in the South. Thought Jake\'s season was not a fluke for the Panthers.. Said Jake made plays when the game was on the line and the team knew he wouldn\'t hurt them in the 4th quarter. Jake loves playing when the games is on the line and everyone in the locker room liked him.

Says Mike Vick hasn\'t showed him he can play for 16 games. Vick is a great guy and great for the league, unitl he can prove he\'s durable, the Falcons will struggle.

Mike Sheppard (QB Coach) -- Aaron is a very bright QB. McCarthy already had him far along before he got to New Orleans. He\'s helped refine some of the little things. Brooks is good at reading defenses. Has good pocket awarness. Could be better. Brooks doesn\'t run the ball as much anymore because his number one job was to throw the ball. However, Haslett would like to see him run it more. Says Hasletts number one worry when facing other teams was a running QB and want Brooks to run more when nothing is there in the passing game. Says it bothers Brooks more than anyone when he screws up. People just don\'t understand how good of a person Brooks is and how much he wants to help this team win. Says when Brooks smiles, it\'s kinda like \"man how stupid was that. What was I thinking.\"

Unlikely.

Unless your scale looks like this.
1. Precognitive--QB sees the future.
2. Telepathic--QB reads the minds of the other guys on defense
3. Outstanding--QB is an avid student of film and is familiar with the oppenents defensive looks.
4. Excellent--QB is great at recognizing what the defense is doing.
5. Great--QB has a firm grasp on his own playbook and makes good checkdowns
6. Intuitive--QB is flat lucky when he doesn\'t see exactly what\'s going on.
7. Good--Aaron Brooks
8. Abysmal--This guy shouldn\'t be coaching pee wee football.

In that case, I\'d agree with \"good\"
