Balls Out Claim of the Day

Hey JKool, the jury is still out on Brook\'s, he\'s shown flashes before then the fire went out as quick as it started. I will really believe if we win the next three games and beat the Vikings all without Deuce.

Balls Out Claim of the Day

Point taken C.

I\'ve defended Brooks many times, and I\'m not going to back down now. I understand the point about not getting the first down on that play, but I maintain that HE was the reason we won against the Rams (still props to Carney and Grant).

The man threw (though he missed a couple), he ran (though he failed to pick up a first down), and he lead the G-d Damn team down the field with 38 seconds left to tie a game that we were on the brink of losing!

All this carp about not getting the first down is a MINOR point compared to the physical and mental performance he gave on Sunday. He went full on and LEAD the team.

I agree that those who are concerned about his leadership ability still have a \"reasonable\" worry, but I maintain that the \"validity\" of these arguments was seriously damaged by Brooks performance on Sunday. I can understand that people want a few more games like that before the buy in - that is reasonable skepticism - BUT too many arguments that rely on the W/L column, the smiling, and the \"lack of belief that he\'s smart enough to get it done\" have been put in SERIOUS question by that last performance.

Ok, I got a bit worked up here, but you all can take my meaning.

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

fjg, you must

1.Be bored mindless and so are just trying to instigate an arguement or

2. Have no concept of football. Think for a second. That slide that didn\'t get to the 1st down. If it was the last drive of the game and we had to get it to try and win, Hell ya I agree with you. If this was a playoff or Superbowl game, I\'m with you my man. We lose AB now to a stupid injury, then what? Bouman throwing it into the ground evry other play??

BUT to sit on your behind at a PC and call someone a ***** who\'s out there on the football field is REAL easy. My little girl can do that.

Shrume - go watch the game. AB knew he b-tched out the second he did it. He jumped up, tried to convince the ref to give a more favorable spot, and then threw his head back and clapped his hands. He knew he\'d made a mistake the second he\'d done it. Saintfan could have made that first down!

Hey J, I was\'nt saying he did\'nt help us win the game, I\'m just saying I need more time before I give AB props for being the next hall of fame QB.

C, I hope you didn\'t take that the wrong way. I knew where you were comin\' from - my rant was really directed to others who are less charitable.
