This start by the Saints kind of reminds me of the first year Haslett was brought on board. Him and his coaching staff didn\'t have a clue as to what they had offensively so they \"winged it \" into the playoffs. Well, here we go again...no Deuce...Horn hurting...new guys in the backfield...so McCarthy doesn\'t know what to do. Now Brooks is once again having to make things happen on his own and he is excelling at it. This is what the coaching staff should\'ve been doing with him all along, structuring around HIS abilities, not around the coaching staff\'s personal preferences as to what we should be doing against any given team. It\'s obvious McCarthy is an idiot, his game-planning isn\'t worth squat, his half-time adjustments stink, his play-calling sucks, the only hope he has is letting Brooks street-ball it into the playoffs. But once the coaching staff realizes it\'s getting out of their hands they\'ll start reigning him in again and it\'ll be back to normal. Do I think Brooks is stepping up to the plate and making things happen? Yes. Do I have any faith this coaching staff will alllow this to continue? No.

I\'m not happy with McCarthy,either. Why was he tinkering with a no FB set? This team would be at its best with a 3 wide, FB set. That way, teams would have major problems in the guessing game. Well, McCarthy would still just run, run then pass.

Since Niners game, I\'ve been thinking about Martz for OC. I think his days are numbered in STL. Hear me out before yall call both of us insane, Remember how they used to try to totally destroy teams, no matter the score ? Well, I think Martz would have comparable players here, as he did in his heyday.

Donte = Holt
Horn ÂÂÂ* = ÂÂÂ* Bruce
Pathon = Proehl
Devery = Hakim
Duece ÂÂÂ* = Faulk
Conwell = Conwell
Boo as lagniappe
ÂÂÂ*ÂÂÂ*AB = Warner? Maybe not, but AB wouldn\'t kill the team. AB simply dosen\'t rattle. I don\'t think anyone besides Peyton could match what Warner did. I was hoping AB would make a Pro Bowl run, but there\'s Vick, Pepper, and Uncle Brett just won\'t go away. McNabb is having a career season. He\'s still called overrated, though. ......
ÂÂÂ*ÂÂÂ*ÂÂ Â*ÂÂÂ*
Martz wouldn\'t be such a bad move, He just needs a sound HC to reign him in from stupid decisions, like he had in Vermeil. Plus , we could keep our RB & Wrs fresh, having depth. I think Martz would do fine with our weapons.

Hey Does it really matter what happened last year or even last week for the matter as long as AB keeps throwing TD, no INT\'s and holds on to the damn ball he is the man and AB is a hell of alot more mobile than Warner ever was and Warner was a product of the environment he was in.

AB dosent have the accuracy of Warner\'s passes. His are often behind, below, or above WRs. Warner throws to where Wrs are GOING. If Warner was merely a product of the Rams\' system, why is he doing so well in NY? Mobility is irrelevent, when you have a QB with a quick, accurate release. Ask Marino.

And lineman do not have to hold their blocks as long ???

Yac numbers are usually higher when receivers are capable of catching the ball away from their bodies at velocities under 90 M.P.H.

Billy,

Good to have you back. You are a few days behind though.

I\'m with you on this one. Brooks is the man.

I am still wanting to hear arguments as to Duece\'s mediocrity. I think he is one damn fine back! The problem for our running game is not Deuce, it is our offensive coordinator - Duece is a big back, but HE relies a lot on his speed, so I think one of our problems is coaching thinking that we should use him as a power back. When we got him the idea was to give him the ball less often for bigger plays (as opposed to the power game we used with Ricky). I think that coaching has forgotten this and tried to stick with a power game when we should be a passing game. If we sling the ball around a bit better, Duece is going to be THE MAN. So, to repeat, Duece would be all that and a bag of chips if our offensive coordinator did not suck. If people think otherwise, they need to provide more than a vague \"he fades down the stretch\"!

Cheers.

<clearing throat>

Just thought I\'d resurrect this little thread after today\'s shellacking.
Today we got to see the other side of Erin Brooks.

By the way anyone still wanting to dump Deuce for Erin Stecker now?

:kerry:
