Erin Brooks is fed up

The Saints' history of inconsistent performances are taking a toll on Brooks, who hinted he was about fed up with the organization.

``I know that I'm the leader of all of this, but I'm tired of it,'' he said. ``I have to sit back and re-evaluate my situation here in New Orleans. I am going to keep fighting until that change comes.''

Asked what he meant, Brooks declined to elaborate.
I wonder what Erin Brooks means by this? Any thoughts?

Brooks is feeling this way because all the blame is on his shoulder. Not the sorry coaching staff that tells Brooks don’t run look down field, not to use our deep threat, or a D-Coordinator who calls stunts only a pop Warner team can execute. Does anyone know if Brooks has input on game planning?

I\'ve always defended AB, but to hear this crap???
C\'mon...
What am I not understanding???
I too think the franchise is run by an idiot...
I too think the franchise historically operates unprofessionally (my list is too long for this post)...
But, at what point does the franchises\' inability to do anything...
MAKE YOU FUMBLE THE FREAKIN SNAP!!!!!
OVER
AND
OVER
AND
OVER
Again....

See ya, AB
LOSER

Found this on another site :

Aaron Brooks

AB - We got our tail beat today. Tough game. Everything could go wrong did. We lost. We lost.

Q - KW Who is responsible?

I am the QB I have to take responsibility. Blame will come to me anyway. If the man wants to make changes I accept that.

KW - Q How Does this Happen (Mistakes, etc)?

AB - Lots of fake love, fake comraderie. We are doing things because we have to. It has gotten better but it is not where it needs to be and creates inconsistencies.
KW seems to be Kenny Wilkerson

This comment AB - Lots of fake love, fake comraderie. is going to lead to a lot of and some serious finger pointing this year .

Does it seem like the finger pointing in New Orleans is almost as seasonal as the December slide in the Hasbeen era ????

Can\'t wait for the :soleil: :nutz:

Special post for WhoDat :

From PFW

New Orleans

With RB Deuce McAllister out of the lineup with a high ankle sprain for the next few weeks, sources say this is the real litmus test for how long the Saints will stick with QB Aaron Brooks. Brooks has always been seen by the team as a ball of potential who just needed time to become a leader. But Brooks isn’t a kid anymore — he’s 28 — and the time to develop has passed. How Brooks is able to lead the team during McAllister’s absence could be a big factor in just how long the team is willing to be patient with him going forward. Brooks has always struggled when he tries to do too much, and the Saints believe it is time for Brooks to start to mature. He may have taken a step in the right direction last week, when he helped lead the Saints to a 28-25 overtime victory vs. the Rams. In the game, Brooks completed 24-of-41 passes for 316 yards with one touchdown and no picks.
Interesting segment I posted last week that was quickly down played as agenda based by some . Adding parts from now and then ....

An almost complete conversation ..........

Agenda Saintfan ???..... :P
