Interesting comment from Duece and Haslett .

Ever think Brooks looks lost or confused in the pocket ?? Maybe he had the wrong play in his mind ...... ;)

Haslett clarified the confusion about a near-busted play that occurred on the opening drive of the third quarter when McAllister fumbled. After the game, McAllister said Brooks called "a play we didn't have."

Instead, Haslett said Brooks couldn't hear the first play call when it was relayed from the sideline and when he asked for it to be repeated it was cut off. According to NFL rules, communication to the quarterback's headset is switched off at the 15-second mark of the play clock. Brooks quickly called a play on his own, but the blocking scheme was wrong, resulting in poor execution before McAllister's fumble.
How many years does it take to learn the plays ???

Saintfan , can we blame Duece's fumble on Brooks now ???.... ;)

How do you justify blaming it on Brooks -- except for your agenda? Deuce was carrying the ball. He got popped. He dropped the ball. If Deuce were any kind of man he\'d own up to it. Is Brooks supposed to run along side him saying \"don\'t drop it, don\'t drop it\" too!?! Jeesh you people are INCREDIBLE. :casstet:

Some leader on offense , he does not know the playbook .Which results in improper blocking for his back which resulted in a fumble ....

Look beyond the single moment Saintfan , you can do it .....

I think you\'re both missing the big picture. Brooks knowing not knowing the playbookis irrelevant. Maybe he just made a mistake. Maybe he called a play from last year on accident in the heat of the moment.

The big question is why is Brooks having to call a play on his own anyway? Is it because McCarthy is up in the booth taking 35 of the 40 seconds we have trying to decide which running play to call?

08, my friend, you fail to see the REAL issue here, and that issue is that the ball was in his hands and he dropped it. A bad play didn\'t make him drop it. Poor blocking didn\'t make him drop it. He was running with the ball and got popped -- one on one -- and failed to hang on to the football. You\'re always eager to fault Brooks at any oppurtunity. Why do you fail to fault other players who make equally boneheaded plays?

Could it be....

an AGENDA?

Exposed...yet again. It\'s sad really. Pull your pants back up 08. Nobody here wants to see that. LOL

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!

It\'s Brook\'s fault for calling the play. This QB\'s today don\'t know how good they have it, getting the plays called in on a headset, please. Brook\'s should go back and study his play book a little more.

Scotty\'s right. Even though this story does give us a great, albeit disturbing, window into how the offense runs.
1. Brooks is not running the offense in any sort of meaningful way, he\'s just McCarthy\'s mouthpiece.
2. McCarthy can\'t be taking 30-40 seconds to make up his mind.
3. If McCarthy isn\'t getting the play out in a timely way, you can\'t count on Brooks to know what to do.
4. Maybe 08\'s argument about Brooks\' wonderlic score holds water after all.
5. Bottom line, you can\'t leave the playcalling up to Brooks on any level and that is on McCarthy.

Deuce\'s fumble is Deuce\'s fault.

If you think Brooks calling a play that we don\'t have is no big deal, you don\'t know football. I could probably still call a play from my high school playbook and I was a WR and that was a LONG time ago.
