Balls Out Claim of the Day

I don\'t want to take anything away from AB. I have always thought and still do think he should remain as the future of the Saints but I can\'t help but think how different these comments would have been if Aneas Williams would have caught that ball. He has much room for improvement. That was a criticle almost game ending mistake on his part. But one bad mistake and a couple of over throw balls is not big enough to cover up his 2nd consecutive great performance.

I don\'t understand why people are shocked by the way he has played. He has only been doing this for the past two years. I think he is getting better in limiting the plays like the one he threw at Aneas Williams. But the guy has been gunning it ever since he first started against the Rams.

OK....so now Brooks has played well enough that we\'re going to field complaints about his \"almost\" interceptions..........LOL.

For all the people that noticed this, raise your hand. Did anyone else see how when the camera flashed over to Brooks on the sidelines that he after each field goal he was high-fiving everyone, but visibly upset with himself on some of his passes? There was no smiling (maybe because he hadn\'t thrown a pick), or joking around on the sidelines. He looked dead serious throughout the game. Competitive even. Have we all just witnessed the Aaron Brooks we ALL want to see leading this team? Maybe it\'s just me, but he seems to be showing some fire out there.

People shouldn't be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.

. brooks still sucks. when brooks scrambled and went down feet first to give us a fourth down, when diving head first would have assured us a first down, shows the lack of heart of this wussy. not to mention the touchdown pass to joe horn should have been intercepted (thanks for the gift rams). and brooks\' feet are still as happy as ever....

Go blow it somewhere else, man, he was the reason we won the game yesterday. He made some mistakes (the shoulda been audible at the line when the Rams were stacking nine) but he won the game. A win is a win, and even I\'ll give Brooks props on this one. Reminds me of 2001.

True - but he did b-tch out on that play instead of selling out for the 1st down, and he had me throwing the remote.

any quarterback with heart would have went for the first down. spkb25, is that what you want? a soft scared presense leading us from the huddle? aaron brooks is and always will be a scared _itch.
